Operating the only licensed contaminated soil treatment facility in Ireland; we help our clients to reduce costs by eliminating the need for costly export. With a range of expertise including site investigation, excavation, loading, transport and soil treatment, trust the experts to get the job done right.
Representative soil samples are taken for chemical analysis and the waste is classified as hazardous, non-hazardous or inert and assigned the relevant EWC code. Based on the waste classification, our soil testing experts recommend the appropriate treatment or recovery process.
Contaminated soil is treated using a combination of processes, these include:
- Bio-remediation – Living organisms are used to remove pollutants, including hydrocarbons, from the soil. This soil remediation treatment can be carried out ex-situ allowing for the immediate removal of soil and ensuring that site development can continue as planned and on schedule.
- Stabilisation – Soil stabilisation is a chemical and physical immobilisation technique, incorporating the use of specially formulated reagents that cause a chemical reaction in organic and inorganic pollutants.
- Soil and aggregate washing.
Enva manages all logistics, transfer forms and TFS documentation associated with the transfer of contaminated soil. We also provide full traceability of waste from start to finish of the recovery process. As a single point of contact providing a full end to end solution, we help clients reduce costs, handling delays and administration, increasing their efficiency and allowing them to focus on their core business.
Enva also offers expert management processes to combat the increasing rise of invasive plant species in construction and development sites.
