The dictionary definition of ‘Remediation’ is along the lines of ‘the correction of something bad or defective’. As contaminated soil and water remediation contractors we’ve firmly claimed the word, search ‘remediation contractors’ and no doubt you’ll get something to do with the contaminated soils….
Adding the Bio part is sadly not for Bionic. Bio is short for Biological. Using biological processes to remediate contamination is a tried and tested method for remediation of hydrocarbons, and many other organic and inorganic contaminants.
These biological processes are often naturally occurring in the environment, bioremediation involves enhancing the natural process by engineering an optimal environment (varying nutrients, oxygen, moisture, temperature…) for hydrocarbon degrading bacteria to accelerate contaminant breakdown.
For a little extra depth to this see the bioremediation page on our web-site where we summarise bioremediation and show our strong track record in hydrocarbon bioremediation and soil bioremediation. If you’re interested in how bioremediation works, check this blog post, and to get an idea about which contaminants can be treated, see this post.
