Technical Paper: Chemical reduction provided the answer for groundwater contamination at a former automotive engineering site

by Ian Viney, managing director of WSP Remediation. This paper was first published in GE’s February 2006 issue.

The UK’s first large scale chromium reduction project has achieved dramatic results on a 4.5ha contaminated site in Salisbury which is being redeveloped for housing.

The former AE Goetze automotive engineering works operated from the 1940s until 1998. Manufacturing involved a range of potentially contaminative activities, including storage and use of hydrocarbons, degreasants and plating products.
