Think Big. Think Nano.

As one of the global pioneers of environmental remediation, we are dedicated to offering gentle, rapid, and permanent remediation of contaminated soils and groundwater with the latest procedures.


Our method: particle-based in situ remediation. We inject customized suspensions of patented microparticles for groundwater remediation into contaminated aquifers. The particles react with the pollutants on site, deep within the ground, and degrade them.



We assess contaminated sites on a fine scale to determine the type and extent of the contamination. For the exploration, we use an integrated package of measuring processes to collect all the relevant groundwater data.

We integrate all the data into a three-dimensional conceptual site model. Within this model, we simulate our in situ remediation application. This leads to a targeted and customized solution for your site.

Through the exact coordination of the particle mix, injection medium and injection process, the particles are specifically introduced to the critical areas of the contamination in order to provide an intensive and sustained treatment.

These three components – high resolution site exploration, the integration of data in the conceptual site model, and the subsequent microparticle application for the elimination of the contamination – provide the basis for our integrated Intrapore system.

In use worldwide. Made in Germany.

Intrapore is the first company in the world to offer solutions for soil and groundwater remediation with the use of nano- and microparticles. It is the only company to provide a particle mix which is customised for each project. Our patented particle suspensions allow us to remediate even the most challenging forms of contamination.

Our company was founded in 2015 by geoscientists and industry experts with many years of experience in site and contaminated area remediation. We have been ranked as an “outstanding research-based start-up project”, and designated as an innovative company by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs.

Our headquarters are situated on the premises of the Zollverein coal mine in Essen. From a location in which coal was mined until recently, we now offer our services for clean groundwater all over the world. Also for former mining sites!

Reducing CO2 and saving on energy costs

CO2-neutral environmental remediation: Intrapore’s in situ procedures are minimally invasive. After injecting our suspensions into the contaminated areas of soil or groundwater, the system reacts practically “by itself”. The suspension attaches itself to the soil matrix, creating a kind of filter, a permeable reactive zone. The contaminated groundwater flows through it and is passively cleaned through interaction with the reactive zone.

No energy is required – our process is climate-friendly and almost CO2-neutral and saves an incredible amount of costs for energy. Intrapore’s in situ remediation thus differs significantly from classical methods such as “pump & treat”: here, powerful pumps have to run continuously to intercept the groundwater in the downstream, sometimes for decades. Intrapore was founded to protect our valuable resource, groundwater, against the backdrop of global warming. Therefore, as a company, we ourselves strive for CO2 neutrality: We travel by train instead of taking the car. We do without short-haul flights. We buy 100% green electricity. This fits in with our claim as an environmental and water company to lead the way in the transformation to a sustainable society.


For the oxidative decomposition of mineral oil pollutants

The typical contamination profiles in the petrochemical, oil and gas industries mostly consist of BTEX, PAH, MOH and MTBE – as a highly concentrated source contamination with free NAPL or highly mobile contaminant plume. With intrablue® we are able to adapt our remediation strategy to such scenarios on a flexible basis.

For the degradation of halogenated pollutants

Crbo-Iron® is the sustainable and exceptionally effective alternative to conventional iron – and this applies with equal regard to mobility during injection, sustainable reactivity and effectiveness as well as to CHC damage of every scope. Organic halogen pollutants such as PCE and TCE are effectively and permanently immobilised, being degraded into ethylene and ethane.

For the rapid, effective adsorption of pollutants

And on a sustainable basis: intragreen® can be precisely adapted to the different adsorption behaviour of the respective pollutants. For organic pollutants, intragreen® is used on the basis of highly efficient activated carbon.

For heavy metals and semi-metals such as zinc, nickel, lead or arsenic, we use colloidal organo-iron oxides which have a high specific surface area.

For the highly effective precipitation of heavy metals

intrared® is a highly effective process for the precipitation of redox-sensitive heavy metals such as chromium, uranium or technetium. intrared® forms stable, redox-active precipitation zones in which the previously dissolved pollutants are deposited in the form of largely insoluble solids. In this way, the further displacement of the highly toxic pollutant in the effluent is prevented on a permanent basis. The deposit effect of the injections also prevents the rebound of the pollutant concentration.

For the treatment of persistent pollutants

With intrawhite®, combined adsorption and reaction zones can be created in which especially persistent pollutants can be enriched and degraded on a successive basis.

The preferred areas of application include effluent plumes of persistent organic pollutants such as phenols, large PAH molecules (starting from 3-ring PAH), halogenated hydrocarbons such as dichloromethane and chlorobenzene, or MTBE.

In situ immobilization of PFC/PFAS

With the Intraplex® activated carbon, in situ adsorption zones can be created to quickly immobilize PFC/PFAS plumes. This scientifically tested, field-proven, and safe option thus enables targeted and economical remediation of PFC/PFAS contaminations.
