Involvement of Sonia Tarnawski in carrying out anaerobic biolodegradation tests on a site contaminated with chorinated hydrocarbons

From July to September 2018,  the freelance consultant expert in environmental microbiology Sonia Tarnawski, made assays for eOde to assess the potential of biodegradation of chlorinated compounds in a contaminated site, at the in situ remediation pilot scaling stage. Various substrates were tested on groundwater and solid matrix samples from the  chloroethene-contaminated site, to [...]

Radon and indoor air quality measurements : eOde is implied in the JURAD-BAT Interreg project

eOde is implied in the european JURAD-BAT Interreg  project, in collaboration with the HEIA-Fribourg (TRANSFORM institute), on behalf of the Federal office of public health (Radioprotection section). Started in 2016, this french-swiss project  aims at better managing the risk of radon and indoor air quality in the new buildings and during energy retrofits. In this [...]
