As a remediation contractor specialising in the clean up of contaminated soil and groundwater, Civils 2000 was a little bit of an experiment for us. The potential visitor profile seemed to match our desired customer base, so we decided to use Civils 2000 as the platform for launching the new addition to our portfolio of services, namely Enhanced Thermal Conduction, a remediation technique developed in the US by United Soil Recycling and now available in the UK, from ourselves in partnership with RH Consultancy.

Capable of reducing high levels (up to 100,000 ppm) of hydrocarbon contamination to less than 100ppm in 4 to 7 days of continuous treatment.

Soil screening is not necessary as soil is not passed through a furnace.

Debris does not slow the remediation process and heavy amounts of clay and moisture do not affect the conduction of heat through the soil.

Capable of year-round operations. Extreme cold, heat and rain do not halt the operations of this portable technology.

This on-site technology provides immediate results, eliminating unsuccessful, lengthy treatment time, road traffic and road contamination associated with hauling off-site for treatment and disposal, and the contingent liabilities of land filling contaminated soil.
