DND Biotech brings environmental and social benefits
Knowledge of microbial communities in contaminated soil
Organic and inorganic contamination in the soil
Control of biodegradation processes
Post treatment soil fertility
Environmental impact of remediation process copmared to chemical-physical treatments
At DND Biotech we develop solutions to close the gap between laboratory research and the effective commercialisation of bioremediation techniques that we propose.
By participating in several EU funded projects, we have developped prototypes and case studies for the application of new bio-flushing and bio-inoculum technologies, for the insitu treatment of contaminated soil and ground water. Moreover, thanks to our in depth knowledge of zeolites, we have tested the performance of several types of bioreactive premeable barriers, for the removal of organic and inorganic contaminants present in leachate of contaminated sites and landfills.
Through our studies, we have demonstrated that biodegradation processes, if adequately supported and stimulated, can lead to a reduction of organic contaminants compatible with industrial and residential limits as per current legislation.
Zeolites for applications in agriculture and industry
DND Biotech, thanks to decades of experience in the study and application of natural zeolites in various context and the important results obtained in the project ZeoWine – ZEOlite and WINEry waste as innovative product for wine production – cofinanced by the European Community and the project RiosCa – RIcalcificazione OSsea in presenza di osteoporosi through capsules
based on clinoptilolite and calcium – financed by the Tuscany Region, develops and distributes with its own brand (ZEOCELITALIA) an innovative line of products with particular focus on agriculture, pet, animal nutrition, water filtration, industry.
DND Biotech è titolare del brevetto italiano “Enhanced technique of remediation of soils contaminated by organic compounds which exploits the capacity of degradation of autochthonous microbial and fungal population”.
