SOIL REMEDIATION

IN-SITU TREATMENT OF SOIL CONTAMINATED WITH ALDRIN (PESTICIDE)

Location: Wadeville, Gauteng

A-Thermal was also responsible for remediating a 2 hectare site in Wadeville that was contaminated with Aledrin (a pesticide that is classified as a Persistent Organic Pollutant).   Over 5,200 tons of contaminated soil was remediated using A-Thermal’s Mobile Thermal Desorption Plant.

The remediated soil was sampled and analysed to ensure the complete treatment of the pesticide.  The project took 6 months to complete.
