Bioremediation

from ARUNDO

Remediate polluted soils in order to recultivate unusable land

What is Bioremediation?

Cost efficient and easily controlled

The costs of the bioremediation is lower than that of other processes of remediating soil. At the same time, the plants used for this process can be easily monitored.

Safest option

It is the least harmful method of soil cleansing, because it utilises naturally occurring organisms and preserves the environment in a more natural state. Other methods of soil mediation cleans the soil at the price of it’s fertility. Phytoremediation preserves the topsoil layer of the lands, maintaining the fertility of the soil.

Extra benefits

Apart from preserving the topsoil, it also increase soil health, yield, and plant phytochemicals. As a byproduct the use of plants also reduces erosion, a huge concern, and metal leaching in the soil.

Why ARUNDO Energy Reed?

Arundo has an outstandingly high growth rate and resultant annual biomass yield meaning it can take a significantly larger amount of contamination out of the soil compared to other plants.

It has an intense transpiration, that can process up to 32 ML/Ha/year.

With a high metabolism rate and strong oxidative and detoxifying enzyme activities, organic contamination break down is faster than most other plants.

It bioaccumulates certain heavy metals completely.

Arundo is known as a low maintenance plant, but it has an incredible tolerance, ranging from 3 to 9 on the pH scale. It also has a tolerance to halogenated organics and to heavy metals.
