THE EARTH'S OWN WISDOM
Bioremediation is the engineered application of biological ‘agents’ (including bacteria, algae, fungi, etc.) to degrade a material.
PRINCIPLES: It uses the principles of nature’s biodegradation process and therefore with less disruption of the contaminated environment when compared to other clean up methods. In other words, by using bioremediation methods for liquid waste management and soil pollution control, we use the Earth’s own ‘wisdom’ to conserve it but with the application of environmental-friendly ‘optimized circumstances’, resulting in much quicker results.
With the frequency and complexity of today’s industrial waste streams, Bioremediation’s intelligent biodegradation formulas are critical. The good news is that it cost less compared to other clean up methods, while it also complies with the Department of Water and Sanitation' (DWS) regulations.
