BALLAST, SUBSOIL AND GROUNDWATER DECONTAMINATION
u In-situ cleaning of raailway ballast and decontamination of subsoil and groundwater from Glyphosat and toxic organic leftovers.
u Fast, efficient and cost effective vegetation control with non Glyphosate herbicide as a side effect.
RBO – Railway ballast oxidation technology, is an in-situ physico-chemical technology based on the generation of superoxide radicals with surfactants and phase transfer catalysts that can simultaneously decompose organic leftovers on ballast surface, subsoil and groundwater.
u High efficiency with up to 94% conversion for a wide range of organic contaminants and herbicide leftovers for all road layers.
u High efficiency with up to 99% conversion for a wide range of organic contaminants and herbicide leftovers in groundwater.
u In-situ cleaning of railway bed for a wide range of organic contaminants without removal or replacement.
