⎯⎯⎯ VISION BIO2CLEAN ⎯⎯⎯
Remediation of soil and groundwater in an environmentally friendly, sustainable and qualitative way.
❈ ❈ ❈
Bio2clean is a spin-off from Hasselt University and stands for the remediation of soil and groundwater in a qualitative, sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
We offer a wide range of services: from feasibility studies to the complete realization of a soil remediation by means of phytoremediation.
As a spin-off of UHasselt, we maintain the link and close cooperation with the Centre for Environmental Sciences (CMK) of UHasselt so that we can always offer you the best quality.
Each site is different, so is our approach
Bio2clean focuses primarily on sites with organic pollution (such as oil, BTEX and TCE), where a tailor-made, high-quality solution is already available.
Sites with other contaminants are further investigated in collaboration with the CMK. In this way, we stimulate further research and contribute to solving tomorrow's problems.

"The Centre for Environmental Sciences (CMK) of the UHasselt is an absolute pioneer in research and implementation of phytoremediation. The researchers have been focusing on this green soil remediation technique since the 1980s. The benefits are enormous," explains Prof. Dr. Jaco Vangronsveld.
"Phytoremediation is a lot cheaper, the soil is not disturbed, there is no transport involved and it works on solar energy. For this reason, this technology is less harmful to the environment and the 'ecological footprint' is also extremely limited."
