Radioactively contaminated material must be promptly decontaminated to avoid long-term damages. For this, our supramolecular complex Rhamnolipid has proven to be able to bind and remove radioactive particles.
Radioactive radiation is one severe threat to humans and nature. When the radiation leaks, either during a nuclear accident or the planned decommissioning of a nuclear installation, it must be coped with immediately to control the radiation and the long-term damages brought with it—we have a solution for this.
Rhamnolipids, alginates and pyoverdines have specific effects that are helpful in cleaning contaminated soils and polluted materials.
