In Situ Decontamination
Using Sediment Conditioning, we avail ourselves of the self-cleaning properties of sediments in a way we simply support and promote.
It is known in a similar process as the sequencing batch reactor method or SBR process which now is considered the best-selling small sewage treatment system. For it is evident that in rivers and harbours clean sediment layers cover contaminated ones.
It is obvious that this is a major threat to humans and the environment. Additionally, disposal of the pollutants in the conventional manner is also very harmful and expensive.
With our simple but ingenious method we clean the sediment, without removing the useful materials. The sensitive microorganisms and wetlands generally remain undamaged.
Sediment Conditioning is applicable to several types of sediments, even to fluid mud.
The Sediment Conditioning operation process can be modified and controlled easily
Technologically applicable even to narrow and shallow rivers/wetlands locations.
Selected and individual treatment of targetted sediment layers (hot spots) is possible.
It enables representative sampling of sediment material for quality control.
No removal of sediments the sediment fauna, and its environment will be preserved.
Sediment Conditioning will prevent sediments from becoming completely anoxic.
Sediment Conditioning will prevent the erosion by the river.
Compared to conventional dredging measures Sediment Conditioning costs are very low.
If operated properly Sediment Conditioning will have the same efficiency as a sequencing batch reactor system
