Unique expertise in the treatment of contaminated soils and water tables
BIOGENIE’s business is to help you clean your polluted sites.
A high level of known, recognised expertise
Biogénie’s expertise in the petroleum and gas industries is based on more than 20 years’ experience.
With involvement in more than 500 large-scale projects worldwide, the company has a proven record of controlling costs, deadlines, and processes.
Many different technologies can be deployed, in accordance with the specifics of the site concerned, with work taking place above ground (ex situ) or in ground (in situ).
SPARGING / VENTINGThis system consists of an air injection that contributes to the evaporation of the contaminants present in the saturated zone (under the water table).
It is combined with an air suction (venting) system to ensure a controlled flow of the mobilised contaminants.
PUMPING / SKIMMINGThis method allows the containment and recovery of products in free phase found under the groundwater tables
CHEMICAL OXIDATIONThis system involves an injection of chemicals into the groundwater to oxidise or reduce the pollutant compounds. This aggressive technology can treat recalcitrant pollutants or heavily affected zones.
SLURPINGThis system can extract contaminants jointly from soil and groundwater environments. Aggressive but not very invasive, it provides efficient action in a short time.
Other in-situ treatment processes:
Vapour injection, Slurping, Biological barrier, aerobic and anaerobic, Reactive barrier, Hydraulic containment, Sealed wall, Reactive barrier, supersaturated C02 injection
THERMAL DESORPTIONThis aggressive method consists of heating the soils and evaporating the pollutants. Combined with a system to recover the gases generated, this technique is suitable for highly contaminated or inaccessible soils.
BIOPILEThis system is based on optimising the natural biodegradation of organic compounds via biostimulation of the endogenous bacteria or fungi. This process breaks the contaminants down into harmless compounds.
Other ex-situ treatment processes:
Venting/Bioventing, wet process sorting by particle size, soil washing by surfactant injection, chemical oxidation, chemical stabilisation/inerting of petroleum sludge
Clear positioning, unique technical expertise
BIOGENIE is one of the few companies in this sector that specialises exclusively in decontamination work
With a technical and scientific department located in Canada and Europe, staffed by around twenty specialists in hydrogeology, chemistry, microbiology, process automation, and process engineering, BIOGENIE designs and makes its own treatment units and carries out the traceability tests that are necessary for the perfect scaling of its decontamination projects and to define the optimum treatment parameters.
Working together in a way that suits your project
Every project is a case study in its own right. Flexibility is the best approach, in order to offer you the most appropriate solutions.
With that aim, Biogénie offers both turnkey solutions and work processes based on close collaboration with the ordering party. Biogenie is more than just a service provider; it works alongside you as a partner!
Running a project efficiently means being able to guarantee its success.
According to the objectives and the nature of the land, decontamination projects are conducted either on site or off site at one of our treatment facilities, to which the soils to be treated are transported
Each rehabilitation project is viewed as a custom project, for which a single contact person coordinates all the participants. By employing our internal resources appropriately, and supported if necessary by carefully-chosen subcontractors, we are able to guarantee the delivery times and results of our work.
