Combining nature with engineered solutions for sustainable environmental remediation

Phytoremediation is a plant-based remediation method that provides a more sustainable and cost-effective solution for a variety of contaminants. Due to recent advances in plant microbiology, phytoremediation has become increasingly more cost-effective and feasible compared to traditional remediation approaches for a wide range of polluted sites, while providing communities with the host of co-benefits inherently offered by trees—shade, carbon sequestration, uptake of greenhouse gases, watershed health, and habitat for wildlife.

We use isolated tree endophytes combined with resilient tree cultivars, providing an Endophyte-assisted Phytoremediation system that provides tolerance to contaminants and competes with traditional remediation methods.

EPA and Regulator Approved

100 inoculated poplar trees are capable of extracting and treating 1 million gallons of contaminated groundwater per year

Inoculated trees had a 95% survival rate compared to  a 30% survival rate for control trees when growing in lethal concentrations of PAH's

Currently remediating 30+ sites nationwide


Our environmental scientists are leaders in the field of Phytoremediation, which is the use of plants and their associated microbes to remediate contaminated soil and water. We use our novel collection of plants and microbes to design Integrated Biological Systems for remediating the most prolific environmental pollutants in soil, surface water, and groundwater.

With our expertise and proprietary biology, we can successfully remediate even some of the most challenging polluted sites. Our systems offer a cost-effective, sustainable alternative to the more capital and labor-intensive conventional remediation techniques. They also complement and can be used to retrofit existing remediation systems.
