BIODEGRADATION AT 90% in 8 weeks
The petroleum storage facility was dismantled and the site was decided to be used as a recreational area. The soil between the tanks was contaminated with many years of hydrocarbon deposits and covered an area of approximately 1,000 sqm. The hydrocarbons derived from diesel fuel and lubricating oils were predominantly in the range of C10 to C36. Our objective, to reduce the level of hydrocarbons in the soil to less than 1,200 mg/kg and satisfy the Gladstone Port Authority.
