Bioremediation of Mine Tailings
BacTech is a pioneering, environmental technology company that has developed and commercialized a proprietary technology to remediate highly toxic tailing areas resulting from abandoned mining operations. BacTech's core technology, called "bioleaching", employs naturally-occurring bacteria, harmless to both humans and the environment, to neutralize acid-generation from sulphides, stabilize harmful heavy elements (i.e. arsenic) and recover leftover metals that help fund the operation. Bioleaching is an environmental reclamation solution that also creates a profit.
