Oil & Chemical Spill Remediation
"Hydrocarbons and VOCs are trapped and fixed in BioChar."
Environmental Cleanup of Contaminated Soil & Water
Due to the chemical and physical properties of BioChar allow the capsular fixation of heavy metals and chemical contaminants in the soil. The BioChar prevents these contaminants from being leached into the local water supply. The use of the BioChar speeds up the process of soil cleanup and the rapid restoration of sterile and contaminated soils. (See Journal Article). BioChar is also used in the cleanup of contaminated water from heavy metals, chemicals, and sediment particles. It is also used to quickly eliminate algae blooms.
Use of Biochar from Biochar Now by the oil & natural gas industries as a cost-effective method of complying with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's regulations for contamination remediation, is truly a game changer.
This process has been approved for many projects across the U.S. including in Texas by the Texas Railroad Committee.
Biochar Now's BioChar filtration process is used to purify water from contaminated wells. Our BioChar removes pollutants and allows clean water to flow into the environment without the risk of contaminating humans, animals, and vegetation.
