Advantica bioslurry reactor project

Remediation specialist Advantica Technologies is carrying out a field trial this year, demonstrating its bioslurry reactor on a site contaminated with coal tar wastes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).

Material is introduced to a controlled, enclosed vessel to promote the growth of microbes.

In these conditions, difficult to treat contaminants such as heavy PAHs can be broken down biologically much quicker than with conventional exsitu bioremediation - land farming for example.

The project aims to determine what operating parameters achieve the most effective results in the biological treatment of gas plant wastes.
