What is thought to be the first major remediation project in the UK to use soil washing is on schedule for completion in mid-September. The process separates and removes fine grained contaminated material from coarse grained material, which is then cleaned. The washed soil can then be largely re-used as fill on site, offering an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional methods of remediating contaminated land.
