Bioremediation and environmental technologies
Procon Environmental offers its clients a comprehensive range of services in bioremediation projects and oil spill clean-ups on land and water.
The Oil Buster focuses on the latest technology in the remediation of contaminated soil. The use of our mobile machinery is the best biological and chemical remediation system on the market today. The mobile system can be deployed to the contaminated site and offers a versatile remediation process that integrates mechanical, biological and chemical remedial processes which are more efficient and cost-effective than traditional methods.
The Oil Buster remediation process is initiated on a molecular level, allowing the soil to be processed and remediated in a more effective and efficient way, providing a more positive effect on the environment.
The Oil Buster provides total degradation of the contaminants in the soil, leaving no by-products or residue. This can take anything from a few days to a few weeks depending on the soil type and level of contamination to achieve complete non-detectable results.
