Microbiology in polluted sites presented in the SIPOL CAS

Sonia Tarnawski spoke on October 23rd in the SIPOL CAS. She presented the conditions for using microbiology to assess the remediation potential of a site by biostimulation or natural attenuation. Her presentation was illustrated by the case of a former watchmaking site contaminated with chlorinated hydrocarbons in the canton of Jura.

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 [...]

UPDS Mag 2 of June 2017 – eOde – Geovariances – Record paper about the reliability of the predicted amounts of soils requiring remediation

How to reduce the gap between predictions of the amounts of soil requiring remediation - at the diagnostic stage - and those that are actually cleaned up at the remediation stage? This is the main issue that professionals have to face in a large number of brownfields regeneration projects. A study was funded by the [...]
