WINDROW OF OPPORTUNITY: Remediation contractor VHE Construction has recently completed bioremediation projects at a former oil terminal in Leeds and at a disused colliery and coking works in Murton, County Durham.

Work at Leeds involved treating 16,000m 3of material arranged in 'windrows'.

A similar process treated 50,000m 3of material at the 74ha site in Murton.

The group has also recently commenced further ex-situ bioremediation projects at former gasworks sites at Portsmouth and at Kensal Green in London. The project in Portsmouth is expected to last for two years and treat 40,000m 3of material. Treatment at Kensal Green will be carried out under the CL: AIRE initiative.
