What Is Soil Remediation?
Contaminated soil remediation — also known as soil washing, refers to a process that removes contaminants from soil. These contaminants can get into the soil through a variety of industrial means, especially in industries like petroleum, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical.
The soil can become infused with fuel residue, heavy metals, pesticides, and other toxins that are hazardous to the environment and to any living things that may come into contact with the soil. It can be harmful to your workers or even animals in the greater community.
There are a number of tested procedures that can remove soil contaminants without allowing them to escape into the atmosphere so that you can safely reuse the soil and the area on and around the soil. ERC can then take those contaminants and dispose of them responsibly, off-site.
What Is PCB Soil Remediation?
PCB soil remediation is a special type of soil remediation involving the removal of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, from the soil. PCBs should not get into the soil under normal circumstances but can end up there as a result of a spill or other industrial accidents.
PCBs are highly toxic and if they find their way into your soil, you should have them removed as quickly as possible.
