The AgRemSO3il System is a combination of solarization and ozonation techniques for farm soil remediation and disinfection.

OZONATION

Ozonation generates hydroxyl radicals with the help of light radiation to attack and destroy any organic molecules to CO2, H2O and mineral salts.

SOLARIZATION

Solarization is based on the placement of a transparent plastic on the floor during the summer months, when temperature and light radiation are more intense.
