Contamination Encapsulation

Rotovated at a low depth of 300-350mm with dust free plant, contaminants are not disturbed and do not risk being made airborne.

When compared with ‘muckaway and disposal’ great cost savings can be achieved while remaining safer for staff and operatives. This unlocks new potential for projects and potential land acquisition where cost and complexity are obstructive.

A wide range of common contaminants can be successfully stabilised or solidified within soils rendering sites suitable for their end use. Soil Science™ have successfully remediated sites containing:

  • TPH
  • PAH
  • Metals
  • Asbestos
  • Sulphate rich soils

UKAS accredited testing houses assess leachability performance to ensure the containment of contaminants. This is inclusive of the rigorous continuous testing standard employed as part of the SUREGROUND™ process.

Additional additives can be employed to afford sulphate resistance to the SUREGROUND™ binders, preventing the negative effects of sulphate rich soils and allowing their successful enhancement.

Multiple encapsulation projects have been completed by Soil Science™, typically used for:

  • Heavy Industrial Sites
  • Decommissioned Fuel Stations
  • Airfields
  • Ex-MOD Land
  • Landfill Sites
  • And spot treatments on sites with pockets of contamination

Soil Science™ manage the entire process in house from the Environment Agency application stage through to project completion. This is inclusive of all the permitting work, testing and monitoring required to undertake works safely and to make site suitable for its end use.
