In our latest publication, we delve into a groundbreaking project set against the backdrop of Kuwait’s desert, where the soil is contaminated by total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH).

Through innovative bioremediation techniques, we’re demonstrating the power of nature to restore these environments to their pristine state.

Our project combines metagenomic analysis, mesocosm tests, and a cutting-edge pilot plant to study the biological processes driving TPH degradation.
The results are promising: we’ve achieved TPH target concentrations below 10,000 mg/kg in just 5 months, thanks to the use of an enriched autochthonous culture for bioaugmentation. These findings pave the way for scalable, sustainable solutions to environmental contamination.

For a deeper dive into our project’s findings and implications, we invite you to read the full publication.
