Who are we?
Rehabilitating your sites: your wish is our command.
French subsidiary of a group called ENGLOBE created in 1986, BIOGENIE EUROPE SAS is a contracting company specialising in the rehabilitation of contaminated sites. Our aim is to offer complete products and services for the treatment of soils and water.
BIOGENIE is now a major player in the decontamination market.
Thanks to its experience and its resources, BIOGENIE is one of the very few companies able to offer robust decontamination solutions with meaningful commitments. These solutions come with guarantees regarding their execution, facilitating the acquisition of contaminated sites and accelerating their reclamation.
Since 1986, BIOGENIE has mainly been developing and using biological technologies that are environmentally friendly and are currently considered the most efficient in this area. Thanks to the experience it has acquired, BIOGENIE has earned the BIO treatment specialist label and is able to remain at the forefront of its field.
BIOGENIE works on site to implement turnkey decontamination solutions to suit each problem (hydrocarbons, solvents, groundwater tables, etc.) or off site, with support from its multi-technology soil treatment facilities.
To respond to the growing need to free up land area quickly, BIOGENIE imagined and created the concept of the permanent contaminated soil treatment facility. BIOGENIE's SOLutions centres are now real multi-technology platforms incorporating all the treatment and reclamation tools needed for the types of contaminated soil commonly found on the market.
The safety of personnel is an everyday priority
LET’S WORK TOGETHER FOR SAFETY’S SAKE!!!!!!!!
BIOGENIE is convinced that the success of a project is contingent on good health, safety, and environmental practice. BIOGENIE unceasingly deploys its QHSE management system.
BIOGENIE has held MASE – ISO14001 dual certification since 2008.
In 2012, BIOGENIE was awarded the LNE’s (www.lne.fr) service certification for providers of services in the field of polluted sites and soils per NF X31-620-4 execution of rehabilitation work. This recognition was obtained thanks to the commitment of the Management and the skills and expertise of our personnel.
It is equally important to us that health, safety, and the protection of our environment be addressed on our sites every day. That is why a board member and a QHSE Manager work to develop a rigorous policy to promote awareness amongst our personnel, our partners, our subcontractors and our suppliers.
BIOGENIE has successfully rehabilitated many industrial sites such as gasworks, petroleum depots, and manufacturing sites, which have required the management of hundreds of thousands of tonnes of materials and cubic metres of contaminated underground waters. Our expertise allows us to propose project-specific solutions that come with guaranteed results. BIOGENIE certifies that the treatments applied will be effective and carried out within the stated times. Our global decontamination solutions comprise three key stages: analysis, design, and implementation.
BIOGENIE starts by performing an in-depth analysis of the customer specification and carries out pilot treatment tests.
In a second phase, BIOGENIE develops an optimum decontamination strategy according to the customer’s constraints, objectives, and needs.
Finally, BIOGENIE carries out the work with support from its team of highly-qualified professionals and its large fleet of suitable equipment.
SOIL TREATMENT AND RECLAMATION FACILITY
To satisfy ever-growing market demand for the off-site treatment of contaminated soils, BIOGENIE has developed and is building its own soil treatment facilities, which are true multi-technology platforms for the treatment of contaminated soils.
This perfectly safe and controlled option also provides a transfer of responsibility.
1 Multi-technology off-site decontamination solutions
These soil treatment facilities are permanent platforms for contaminated soils. They use the dynamic biopile process and soil washing, and finally in-pile thermal desorption. These complementary processes provide a global solution to all contaminated soil problems and treat a wide range of pollutants, such as petroleum hydrocarbons, volatile compounds, heavy hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, wood treatment products, and inorganic products such as heavy metals.
These facilities are truly dedicated recycling and reclamation mechanisms. They allow us to offer the market a wide range of materials (sands, rubble, etc.) that can be used in civil engineering works.
2 Acceptance criteria
We demonstrate our expertise on a daily basis, by treating the highest contaminant contents, including:
|Pollutants||Maximum allowable MS content in mg/kg|
3 Four operational soil treatment facilities
To date, BIOGENIE has commissioned four hundred treatment facilities: Echarcon (91) with a capacity of 300,000 tonnes, Bruyères sur Oise (95) with a capacity of 300,000 tonnes, Château Gaillard (01) with a capacity of 100,000 tonnes, and Chalandry Elaire (08) with a capacity of 60,000 tonnes.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Tomorrow? You can count on us to think of that today
Stimulating the microbial activity in the soil to break down pollutant compounds
such as petroleum hydrocarbons naturally; isn’t that a great idea?
BIOGENIE began to do that in 1986, when it developed the biopile technique.
This invention constituted a big step forward in the field of decontamination and its creator, Biogénie, has continued to stay one step ahead of developments in the sector.
Biogénie’s expertise can also take the form of regular initiatives involving R&D projects, in which the company invests up to 3% of its annual turnover. Backed by a network of industrial, academic, and institutional partners, around twenty experts in Englobe’s R&D department have facilities where they can develop technologies that are tested on a laboratory and pilot scale before being exposed to the realities of the field, at full scale.
The challenge: to be prepared right now to face the issues of tomorrow, via concrete and operational solutions!
AN INTERNATIONAL FORCE
To be more solid by your side
In France, Canada, the USA, and the UK, Biogénie is building a leading position in terms of environmental services, under the aegis of EnGlobe Corp.
All over the world, wherever Biogénie companies are making their presence felt, they stand out for their top-notch consulting services, which are followed by action in the field to treat contaminated soils in situ or ex situ.
This international dimension provides valuable experience and essential dependability you look for in a partner, when total reliability is essential.
