E-clay fix for pollutants


CONTRACTOR JOHN Mowlem is setting up a new remediation division, which will focus on insitu treatment of contaminated land using patented E-clays developed by Envirotreat.

The technology allows insitu treatment of a wide range of pollutants using highly reactive modified organo-inorgano clays (E-clays) to fix contamination in place.

Initial emphasis will be on the Envirotreat process, but other remediation services will be offered in the future, the company says.

Envirotreat previously had an agreement with Norwich-based geotechnical contractor May Gurney (Technical Services), which together with University of Birmingham developed a new auger device to introduce the E-clays into the ground.

A spokesman for May Gurney said the firm 'will continue to offer mix-in-place remediation techniques, incorporating alternative organophilic clay additives where appropriate, together with other technologies for both contaminated land treatment and ground improvement.
