By adding a high concentration of specific bacterial culture to contaminated water, biological degradation is accelerated. This principle is called bioaugmentation and is applicable to both soil remediation and biological water treatment.
We have several ORVIaugment bacterial cultures in stock, such as for the anaerobic degradation of the chlorinated components: PER, TRI, CIS and VC (ORVIaugment DHC culture), for methanol and for heavy oil. We develop new or tailor-made bacterial cultures, such as for the degradation of plant protection products and for the degradation of MTBE.
With ORVIdetect-qPCR analyzes we measure the effect of our ORVIaugment cultures when applied in practice. Where do the bacteria end up? Do they grow or do they wash out? This way you are assured of an effective result.
