Citation from the BLANCO application (translated from German):
BLANCO has an open relationsship with the public, regulatory agencies, customers and suppliers. This is shown for example in our approach with contaminated land at two of our sites. Both sites are remediated in a continous dialogue with the environmental agency and the public, using ecological methods like Bio-Venting (degradation of mineral oil by bacteria) and a Phyto-remediation (degradation of chlorinated hydrocarbons by planting 120 poplar trees).http://www.umweltpreis.baden-wuerttemberg.de/servlet/is/29934/
