Frongoch Mine

The Frongoch Mine site required phytoremediation of the contaminated soil in an area of reclaimed mine tailings.

We used TerrAffix-Mine to reduce the mobilisation and bioaccumulation of heavy metals within both the polluted soil and the vegetation to prevent further land and water pollution.

TerrAffix-Mine consists of biochar which locks in heavy metal pollutants such as copper, zinc and nickel, preventing water pollution. This makes it a highly effective and sustainable phytoremediation solution for the contaminated land around Frongoch Mine.

22 days after seeding a previously barren landscape is greening up.
