 Project objective

The business of our company, IEG Technologie GmbH is soil remediation by using our groundwater circulation technologies. The GroundCLeaner proposal addresses to increase our competitiveness by developing a disruptive, rapid and costeffective method to remediate soils contaminated by chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOC), representing major threat to the quality of the European environment. The innovative method combines the state of the art ground water recirculation well (GWC) technology, patented by us, and a recently developed electro-biological treatment. Our aim is to further exploit the results of the novel technology proposed by providing a wider range of treatment. We aim at marketing this new combined technology for removal of CVOCs from soil, our services will include design, manufacturing, assembly, startup, maintenance and operation. The proposed technology targets to reduce the operational costs of remediation up to 70 %. The success of our solution would strengthen our international position on the market and would make us grow by becoming market leader for chlorinated compound remediation. During this phase 1 proposal we would like to carry out a technological feasibility study, market assessment, risk assessment, a study on or freedom to operate, develop a detailed work plan for a Phase 2 application and elaborate a business plan. After successful phase 1 application we intend do phase 2 proposal, in which we develop the marketable GroundCleaner technology. The present proposal targets to make a pan-European impact as it will reduce the estimated €17.3 billion spent by EU countries, and 2.2 billion spent by EU Structural Funds for reversing the environmental consequences of soil and water pollution caused by industrial and other activities.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GROUNDCLEANER" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
