Contamination of your soil by industrial pollutants can create a threat for human health, ecosystems and water resources. It makes good sense for reducing your environmental impact and increasing the value of your site to conduct remediation to clean up your soil.

Our accredited environmental teams can conduct a remediation study on your site. This will ensure that the most effective type of remediation is chosen to suit the type and extent of contamination. We analyze the presence of pollutants and look at your geology and hydrogeology to access possible solutions.

Our study follows a rigorous methodology, using techniques that are safe and cost-effective, and that meet all the latest legal and regulatory obligations. The end result is a bespoke rehabilitation plan clearly comparing remediation options that suit your needs.

Some of the available remediation options include:

  • In situ techniques: bioremediation, natural attenuation, (bio) venting, (bio) sparging, permeable reactive barriers, soil vapor extraction and injections
  • On-site techniques: ‘pump and treat’ with on-site treatment of pumped water (separators, stripping towers, activated carbons), land farming and ground treatment by mobile units
  • Off-site techniques: excavation of contaminated ground and assessment by a treatment centre (biological, physico-chemical, thermal and by incineration treatments and much more)

For follow-up of remediation works, we provide you with tendering specifications that integrate the technical and administrative information you need for specialist contractors in this field. We also provide independent advice and a comparative evaluation of your remediation quotes.

During decontamination works, we will ensure that your supplier is meeting the tender specifications and we will oversee safety compliance. Our presence on site means that we can also manage the excavated ground sorting and sampling and groundwater monitoring that may be needed as part of the remediation process.
