Site remediation at a former chemical plant, France

Site remediation at a former chemical plant, France

REMEA set up the worksite designed to remediate the site of a former textile dye production plant operated by the Clariant company until 2011. The goal was to clean up 130,000 tonnes of polluted soil. The remediation process will be carried out in a confined area and consist in washing the soil with water. When this work, which will take 60,000 hours, is completed, 90% of the soil will be recycled and backfilled after treatment. The project is scheduled to last 18 months. Earthworks and materials treatment work got under way in 2018.
