We sit down with the client to discuss the pollution problem and design a tailored solution for remediation. This can consist of a combination of phytoremediation and traditional remediation. The phytoremediation is tailored depending on the distribution of the pollution and can be a combination of hemp, willows, reedbeds,… We decide on a duration of the project. Since phytoremediation is a slow technique, removal requires a time span of years to a couple of decades.


Remove all vegetation and/or objects that hamper the implementation of the phytoremediation solution. Organic fertilizer is applied as needed.


We provide all the seeding materials and plants that will be used and perform the seeding and planting.


For 1 year crops, we perform the harvesting. We carefully collect the polluted material for destruction.


We ensure that the polluted plant parts are permanently destroyed or the pollutant recovered. We use state of the art and certified technology for this purpose.


We sample the soil in time so we can monitor the evolution of pollution. We also investigate to apply state of the art technology and artificial intelligence to further automate this monitoring.

Which pollutants can we handle?


This is our prime focus given the emergency, its widespread presence and the fact that it is a persistent “forever chemical” that is not broken down naturally.


A lot of historical heavy metal pollution is present. In essence, these heavy metals can be valuable and, hence, we try to recover them to bring them back to industries who can use them. This can be considered as mining by plants.
