Soil cleansing using laser zap

Causes of soil pollution

  • Man-made fertilisers and chemicals used to improve crop yields can remain in the soil for a very long time.
  • Anti-toxins added in animal manure cause soil degradation.
  • Oil spills and industry waste also affect large areas of farmland.

Common methods for soil cleansing

  • Water or organic solvents to wash away the chemicals.
  • Soil vapour extraction to pump air into the ground and remove volatile organic compounds.
