Hydrocarbon contaminants are common on most brownfield developments, often the result of former works, in ground tanks or similar. Dunton has developed a rapid treatment technology for a wide variety of chemical pollutants in soils. Bio-Accelerator, a liquid based in house developed product, can reduce concentrations of hydrocarbon contaminants within weeks.

Dunton Environmental have developed a bio accelerator which harnesses the naturally occurring ability of microbial metabolisms to degrade a huge range of compounds including Hydrocarbons (e.g. oil, petrol and diesel), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and polyaromatic hydrocarbons(PAHs).

Featured Case Studies

The soil is initially screened to remove any builder’s rubble and deleterious materials. It is then treated according to the chemical nature of the soils, either by way of: accelerated bioremediation to degrade any residual organic pollutants such as TPH and PAH (including Benzo (a) pyrene); or by the addition of Dunton’s chemical oxidation compounds which induce chemical reduction.

“We have known the Dunton team for a number of years and I’ve personally worked with them on a few of these schemes. They are a good, clear and knowledgeable partner who have brought innovation and efficiency to our ground regeneration schemes, hopefully they will be able to provide you with the same benefits.”
