Soil Remediation : Middle East
BioGenesis technology has been utilized in large-scale projects in the Middle East to remediate soils and sands saturated and contaminated with weathered crude oil.
TANK FARM / HYDROCARBON SOIL REMEDIATION
BioGenesis has sold a plant and chemicals, and is supervising the operations, for the remediation of soil contaminated by hydrocarbon leakage at a tank farm. After exhaustive lab analysis and pilot testing at its facility in Milwaukee, the company was able to propose a solution that was very competitive for the client versus traditional methods. The plant operates at 40 tons per hour.
PCB CONTAMINATED SOIL REMEDIATION
In early 2017, BioGenesis began design, construction and delivery of a plant for remediation of PCB contaminated soil. The company will own and operate the plant for the client, with operations scheduled to begin in late Spring and be completed late Summer this year. The plant is designed for treatment of 40 tons per hour.
In January 2017, BioGenesis began pilot testing of its Mobile prototype for the remediation of various wastes generated from oil & gas exploration, transportation and refining. These wastes include drill cuttings, tank bottoms and drilling mud, among others.
In 1992, BioGenesis conducted remediation of soil contaminated with crude oil soil in Pine Bend Refinery, St. Paul, MN – Koch Industries. BioGenesis constructed and operated a full-scale soil washing facility to clean crude oil contaminated sandy soil from refinery operations
In the winter of 2003/04, BioGenesis performed a pilot demonstration project for the Venice Port Authority in Venice, Italy on approximately 330 cubic meters of contaminated sediment dredged from four locations in the canals in Porto Marghera.
BioGenesis performed a full-scale demonstration of the BioGenesis Sediment Decontamination Technology under contract to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, Office of Maritime Resources and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
In 1993, under the Canadian Wastewater Technology Centre, the BioGenesis Sediment Decontamination Technology was tested on sediment from Thunder Bay Harbor, Ontario, Canada.
In 2002, bench-scale treatability testing of the BioGenesis Sediment Decontamination Process was performed on sediment from the Kai Tak Approach Channel in Hong Kong. The purpose was to evaluate the technology for use in reclamation projects.
In 2008, BioGenesis performed bench-scale treatabililty tests on sediment from the NamDong Retardation Basin in Incheon City, located in an industrial area where storm water runoff causes settling of sediment and debris prior to discharge into the West Sea.
