In-situ Remediation of Metal-contaminated Soil

This CRADA arose through the United States Industrial Coalition, Inc. to foster new business partnerships between the US and the Newly Independent States (NIS) of the Former Soviet Union under DOE's Incentives for Proliferation Prevention (IPP) Program. The main goal of the DOE/IPP program is the development of commercially viable technology that will provide employment for NIS weapons specialists and diversion of equipment and facilities from weapons-related production. The NIS scientists involved in this CRADA had developed and sought assistance in commercializing a product called "Humosorb". The goal of this project, which involve collaborative work between a US company, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and Russian weapons scientists at the Scientific Institute for Chemical Means of Plant Protection (SICPP), was to evaluate and field validate the application of Humosorb for in-situ remediation of metal-contaminated soils, specifically by immobilizing heavy metals in contaminated soil and preventing their uptake into plants.

Detoxification of Soils Contaminated with PCB's

It has been recognized during recent years that among the many kinds of xenobiotics there is a group characterized by a very high degree of toxicity that can be qualified as super-toxic substances. This group consists of organic substances such as polychlorinated dioxins, dibenzophurans and biphenyls, pesticides containing chlorine or phosphorus, and polyaromatic hydrocarbonates etc. Please read the following study conducted by OrganoCat on Remediating Soils Contaminated with PCB's.

Remediating Salt Contaminated Landscape

Throughout much of the world, salt is used to melt snow and ice on roadways, sidewalks, concourses, etc. Although salt is an effective, low cost solution, it can be damaging to plants, trees and grass, resulting in sick and dead landscape along roads and thoroughfares. It can be costly for government and private organizations to repair and replace this landscape and there are very few low cost prevention techniques. Floris™ and NutraHume™ are materials that were tested and proven to reduce the adverse effects of salt on plant material of any kind.
