Bioremediation is an innovative process that uses naturally occurring microorganisms to break down contaminants or hazardous substances found in soil and transforms it into harmless products such as carbon dioxide and water. This process of bio-degradation is one that occurs naturally, over time. Soil stabilization is another method designed to manage contaminated soil to capsulate contaminants and reduce potential liability before final disposal.
Our Bioremediation facilities are designated to handle hydrocarbon or metals contaminated soils in lined treatment cells. These cells are designed to divert water run-off within the cell, manage the collected water, then treat or dispose of it accordingly. Our facilities ensure that contaminated soil is handled in an economically and environmentally sound fashion.
Impacted soils that meet treatment criteria are treated and then managed as per the presiding regulatory requirements. In some cases, treated soils are placed in the adjacent landfill based on the landfill authorizations and internal policies.
We currently operate eight state-of-the-art Bioremediation facilities across Canada.
