Transform has over the last 30years set up several projects for treating oil contaminated water and sludge. Special attention has been to treat and recirculate wastewater from car, container and train wash. With this experience it was decided to test and acquire an EU Environmental Technology Verification. Result of this test is that the specific developed Rootzone soil filter can adapt and decompose oil contaminant. It is documented that the treated water can be recirculated or reused for irrigation or other purposes. Approval from EU was given on the 9th of January 2018, as the first and only approval by EU of treating oil contamination. This presentation is the first given since approval.
