CONTAMINATED SOIL TREATMENT
HOW DOES CONTAMINATED SOIL HAPPEN?
Soils become contaminated when harmful chemicals accumulate and sit on a piece of land. This is typically due to previous industrial or agricultural activities. It reaches a point where the soil becomes or has the potential to become dangerous to people or other living things in the surrounding environment. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that tens of thousands of contaminated sites remain in the United States that have the potential to cause environmental harm. Master Environmental plays an essential part in the process of remediating and reclaiming these lands for future use.

How Does it Work?
Chemical fixation is a soil remediation process used to treat hydrocarbon contaminated soil and/or metal contaminated soil. The process involves stabilizing contaminated material by mixing it with other stable earth material. We then treat the new blended material with chemical additives to formulate a particular material. This treatment binds the petroleum contaminants and prevents leaching. Chomical fixation is best used for light to medium hydrocarbon contamination and/or contaminated soil impacted by metals.
Bioremediation is a treatment process that provides a cost effective and environmentally conscious recycling solution for non-hazardous contaminated soils. Through a process called bioaugmentation, microorganisms are introduced into the contaminated environment as a granular or grainy product that has the proper nutrient mix to stimulate and foster their growth while breaking down the contaminants in the soil.
The process breaks down organic contaminants, such as petroleum hydrocarbons, in the soil by the application of cultured microorganisms selected for their ability to metabolize the petroleum products.
Soil that is lightly contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons is injected with engineered bacteria and nutrients that work to completely break down soil contaminants in 7 to 14 days. This process is typically used on soil with lower levels of contaminants. The treated soil is recycled as fill material or landfill cover.
Physical treatment of soil is done by a sizing and segregation processes to remove harmful materials from incoming soils. This soils generates an engineered material suitable for reuse as fill material or landfill cover.
