Remediating Environments Regenerating Communities
“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
Sustainable & Climate Smart
Climate and Contaminants
Phytoremediation is a resilient way to detoxify contaminated land through the removal of pollutants from the environment or to render them harmless. A transformative process with low environmental impact; high environmental return.
Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
Nature based solutions allows for carbon sequestration, the detoxifying of soil and the ongoing conversion of biomass into energy or other sustainable products.
Green remediation is less invasive on existing communities and more cost concious. Natural based solutions are an effective resource for Municipalities that have been overburdened with contaminated land.
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children"
Phytoremediation uses plants to clean up contaminated environments. Plants can help clean up many types of contaminants including metals, pesticides, explosives, and oil. Certain plants are able to remove or break down harmful chemicals from the ground when their roots take in water and nutrients from the contaminated soil, sediment, or groundwater.
Phytoremediation is a low-risk and attractive cleanup method. Cleanups cause little disruption to the site or surrounding community. Fences and other barriers are constructed to keep wildlife from feeding on contaminated plants. Initial work may involve grading or tilling of the soil with earth-moving equipment, and backhoes may be needed to plant trees and large shrubs making a site more attractive than removal or other construction based solutions. Also, the site can be cleaned up without digging up and hauling soil or pumping groundwater, which saves energy. Trees and smaller plants used in phytoremediation help control soil erosion, make a site more attractive, reduce noise, and improve surrounding air quality.
