Soil which has been polluted with hydrocarbons (oil, petrol, diesel, paraffin, aviation fuel, creosote etc) is cleaned using microbial agents which digest the contaminant and use it as a food source.
GK-it was established in 2003 when management realised that SA Industry needed an alternative to the dated "dig and dump" approach to accidental petroleum spillage. Products and services were then developed and field tested and a production plant established in 2004.
