ORVIaugment – cultures

By dosing a high concentration of a specific bacterial culture to contaminated water, it is possible to accelerate biological degradation. This principle is called bioaugmentation and is applied to both soil remediation and biological water treatment.

We stock a variety of ORVIaugment bacterial cultures, such as those for the anaerobic degradation of the chlorinated components PCE, TCE, CIS and, VC; for methanol and for heavy oils. We are continuously developing new or customised bacterial cultures, such as those for the degradation of pesticides from greenhouse horticulture and for the anaerobic degradation of chloroform, 1,1,1-trichloroethane and 1,2-dichloroethane.

The effectivity of our ORVIaugment cultures are additionally measured with DNA analyses. Where do they end up? Do they grow or do they just wash out? In this way you are assured of an effective result.

View our project in The Hague to get an idea of the application. Or contact Paul Appeldoorn to order ORVIaugment, or to discuss how we can develop and apply bacterial cultures for your situation.

Paul Appeldoorn is a Civil Engineer. His ambition is to solve problems. New biotechnologies make it possible to look at soil remediation, water treatment or industrial processes with fresh eyes. But the technology only works if the problem is dissected and there is a clear financial advantage for the customer. Keep questioning until the core of the problem has been achieved and be honest about what works and what does not work.
