The energy industry (including renewable / non-renewable energy, energy demand, energy distribution and generation) may face significant challenges of industrial effluents, contaminated soil and air pollution. Resulting from burning of coal are by-products such as mercury (Hg) and CO2.
The benefit of the services offered to the energy industry is to resolve challenges by bringing industrial effluents and contaminated soil to the permitted levels, to achieve the improvement of air quality or to offset the carbon footprint and to become carbon neutral.
After previous activities of its founders in the Cleantech- and environmental segment, Xenviro had been started as a project. The project goal was the ambition of providing in this industry unrivaled services to resolve environmental pollution and health issues. This means provision of innovative and effective services, regardless of whether solutions are already known and applied to the industry. Joining forces with other leaders in this line of business was an additional goal.
Xenviro, a pioneer in the area of sustainable Cleantech- and environmental solutions, is a privately owned Swiss company. Through a close collaboration with external research institutes and a vast network of partners and other industry leaders, we are in position to provide the following benefits to our clients: Technology, know-how and experience, thus security for you.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is very important - we implement it consistently in all aspects.
No Question! Of Course - Xenviro is a CO2 neutral company!
Xenviro is specialized in the development of customized solutions in the following areas:
- Irreversible binding of heavy metal pollution
- Decontamination of oil pollution
- Cleaning up oil spills
- Disinfection: removal of bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores
- Odor reduction
- Compensation of CO2 footprint
Our clients get a consultation, to show in detail how the specific environmental problem can be solved. The problem can be solved by the client self or by us – as requested. If the problem should be resolved by us, consulting is considered as a part of the solution and will be taken into account.
By evaluating a solution for a client, we will take a pragmatic approach: The solution must meet all mandatory requirements, it must fit to both - to the client and to the situation, additionally the environmental compatibility must be ensured and, of course, the solution must also be affordable.
Accordingly, the the solution must meet the following criteria:
- Proven sustainability
- Complete environmental sustainability
- Economic acceptable
For some remediation jobs and cleaning applications, conventional methods are perfectly adequate. In the case, that traditional measures will no longer comply with the requirements for sustainable remediation of contaminated sites, innovative approaches and methods are required.
Hardly anyone accepts compromises in terms of sustainability, especially with innovative solutions. Innovative solutions, methods and processes require sufficient research prior to their application in nature. The internal and external research pursues only one goal: sustainability and effectiveness must be proven prior to the application in nature.
The following examples of the research and development show how we conduct innovations into marketable, sustainable solutions. It is delightful that costs and engagement had been rewarded with a subsidy.
Sustainable cleantech- and environmental solutions by health- and ecological hazards
Toxic pollution is rarely visible, pollutants often find their way into our bodies through seemingly 'safe' sources. The majority of pollutant exposures derive from inhalation of contaminated dust, soil, through plants or gases and ingestion of contaminated water.
Pure Earth (New York, NY, formerly known as "Blacksmith Institute) and other organizations identified DALYs (Disability-Adjusted Life Year or DALY) for:
- Lead (Pb)
- Chromium (Cr)
- Mercury (Hg)
- Asbestos (naturally occurring, fibrous silicate minerals)
Health impacts based on the example of lead: Lead can be the cause of neurological, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular problems. Lead exposure during pregnancy can be the reason of miscarriage, stillbirth, low birth weights, premature births and birth defects. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) states that lead is a possible human carcinogen. In addition to the above-mentioned examples, many other chemical elements with similar health effects have to be added.
