biological treatment of groundwater
LVM-BIOcells stands for: “Using hydrogeobiocells (HGBcells) for the in-situ biological treatment of CAH (Chlorinated Aliphatic Hydrocarbon) contaminated groundwater in areas with low hydraulic gradients.”

Third bioaugmentation round successfully performed in October 2017In March 2017 the operation of the first HGB-cell for bioaugmentation started. On the 12th and the 13th of October 2017 the third batch of dechlorinating bacteria (80 L MDB1.0) was successfully injected. The goal of this extra addition of inoculum was to accelerate the biodegradation in the HGB-cell and to distribute dechlorinating bacteria over the total soil volume of the HGB-cell.
Participation Enviroworkshops November 14 and 15, 2017.Avecom will participate in the Enviroworkshops on November 14th (Berlin) and November 15th (Amsterdam). AVECOM will be sharing the latest results of labtests with the participating professionals of the remediation industry.

Update results groundwater reactor testsAn update can be found on the results of the successful lab tests for growing dechlorinating microorganisms with site polluted groundwater. These tests are an important step in evaluating the feasibility of an on-site growth reactor for the dechlorinating culture at the site.
