Bioremediation of water bodies
Due to the low rate of sewage and treatment networks in Brazil, the existing water bodies end up receiving a large portion of raw sewage, impairing its quality and, consequently, making it impossible for them to be used as a drinking water source for the population.
The pressure from the population is remarkable and the growing interest of the responsible public bodies in remediating these contaminated water bodies, either for their resumption as a source of supply or even for recreation and leisure, is constantly growing.
An example that has international repercussion is the remediation of Lake Pampulha in the city of Belo Horizonte, in Minas Gerais. This body of water is part of the complex was named a UNESCO World Heritage site due to the project to restore the quality of its water started in 2016.
Millenniun is proud to be part of the consortium responsible for the treatment of Lake Pampulha, using the bioremediation technique. The application of the Enzilimp solution at the site has promoted improvements in both the visual and analytical aspects, in addition to the reduction of bad odors, a problem most perceived by users on the edge of the lake.
Another extremely important remediation work for water bodies controlled by Millenniun was the decontamination of the waters of Marina da Glória in Rio de Janeiro, where Olympic athletes accessed the Guanabara Bay as proof of use.
