Brownfield valorisation with phytomanagement

We recently carried out a biomass production feasibility study on one of the sites of DUFERCO Wallonia. The phytoremediation and phytostabilisation potential of the proposed crops was also investigated, in collaboration with our partner MICROHUMUS. Based on a preliminary diagnosis complemented by on-site investigations, analyses and phytotoxicity tests, the most appropriate species were selected, to…

« Natural » phosphorus removal in water : pilot testing

Phosphorus remains an important element to remove in water, to avoid eutrophication of natural environments. This treatment step remains a challenge for small treatment plants (constructed wetlands, ponds, etc.), diffuse sources (runoff and drainage water) and surface water (water bodies, canals, etc.). As part of the development of its services and environmental ecotechnologies for water…

News about our soil solutions in Belgium

A soil consultancy subcontracted us the in-situ treatability study for a Belgian industrial site contaminated with organic aromatic compounds. This mission, which is part of a larger project, assesses whether phytoremediation is applicable to the investigated case, the likely remediation performance to be expected, as well as the estimated budget and planning. This stage allows,…

Participations to Aquaconsoil 2019 conference and Paris forum on NBS

Naturem Solutions go the opportunity to present two posters during the May Aquaconsoil conference in Antwerp, valorising our services and innovations for land and soil management : “Phytoremediation and mycoremediation of contaminated land at industrial scale : a complete toolkit for nature-based solutions” “On-site or commercial topsoil manufacture using excavated soils or inert materials :…

Optimisation of the FILTRAN® process

The FILTRAN® process is an innovative compact vegetated filter (reed bed) for the treatment of organic matter and optimised for the treatment of total nitrogen in wastewater. Thanks to partial funding from the Walloon Region (technological cheques), NATUREM SOLUTIONS entrusted CEBEDEAU with a study in 2017 aimed at optimising the sizing of the process, the…

Constructed wetlands for the treatment of groundwater and surface water contaminated with explosives

During the summer of 2018, NATUREM SOLUTIONS carried out, on behalf of consultancy ALMADIUS, a feasibility study for an industrial customer in Belgium. The aim was to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of treating a resurgence of groundwater and surface water by different types of constructed wetlands (including vegetated filters) without electricity consumption. The…
