Remediation of contaminated sites

Most industrial activities can cause environmental damage caused by poor management of waste and improper storage of raw materials, leading to pollutants reach the soil and, what is worse, groundwater, contaminating aquifers and pollution spreading.

Biogroup has the know-how and experience in the field of diagnosis, impact assessment, risk analysis, project and operation of remediation, environmental liabilities and audits on soil and water contamination grounded in 20 years of uninterrupted stay in the market.

In this sense the area Biogroup Engineering provides the following services:

Environmental audits of transactions of sale “Due Diligence”.
Historical study sites prior to assessment of possible soil contamination (Phase I).
Determination of Baseline.
Characterization studies of potentially contaminated sites (Phase II).
Design sampling plans groundwater and contaminated soils.
Preliminary Status Reports Soil.
Periodic monitoring reports and environmental monitoring.
Remediation projects and corrective measures (Phase III).
Biotratabilidad studies. Pilot trials.
Construction of infrastructure for cleaning sites.
Risk Assessment (RBCA) for the establishment of maximum allowable concentrations and NGR (Generic Reference Levels).

Analytical soil, water and subsurface gases in own laboratory, accredited by the COFILAB.
Design, construction and maintenance treatment units.

Then the technologies currently used by our team for decontamination of soil and groundwater are cited:

Our successes are based on:

Development of a remediation strategy that meets customer requirements.
Creating a framework for proactive dialogue with regulatory bodies meeting the technical and political requirements of both parties.
Implementation of an effective and realistic plan remediation based on minimizing costs and maximizing efforts in the implementation of appropriate corrective measures.
Delivery on time and on schedule based on the proposal and the original budget.
