For emergency situations, Veolia can manage cleanups and handle post-spill investigation and remediation requirements. Contaminated material is moved off-site in a safe and timely manner, minimising the risks of environmental impacts.

Soil management

Our services cover all areas across the lifecycle of contaminated soil management. Veolia’s key capabilities include:

Onsite contaminated soil treatment

We offer a range of onsite soil treatment options to support your needs and deliver safe and sustainable results.

StabilisationContaminationThermal desorptionBioremediationAbatement

Stabilisation reduces the mobility of pollutants in the soil by modifying the contaminant’s chemistry or through ‘solidification’ (physical binding) to achieve a less leachable and bioavailable form of the contaminant to ensure its safety.

Onsite containment may be preferred for sites with large volumes of material, where space is not limited and its management would not impede on future land uses. It involves the secure encapsulation of impacted soil in circumstances where it is safe and compliant to do so, and where it is the most sustainable solution.

Heating some contaminants separates them from the soil they are impacting, allowing them to be captured and removed on site using extraction bores. This advanced technology is readily utilised by Veolia internationally.

Bioremediation harnesses natural biological breakdown to degrade contamination in soil. This solution can be undertaken in situ or ex situ,  and can be expedited with the help of mixing additives into the soil. Our strategy is tailored to the characteristics of material and level of contamination.

Abatement is offered for non-friable asbestos to remove the asbestos fragments from soil and dispose of it appropriately. This minimises the quantity of material being disposed off site and can be a more cost-effective solution for small volumes.
