What is Soil Remediation?

Soil remediation refers to a collection of strategies designed to purify and revitalize the soil. Part of a comprehensive effort referred to as environmental remediation, soil remediation works in concert with similar efforts to purify air and water, with the objective of optimizing the ecological balance of the planet. Many countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and the United States, are actively engaged in some form of soil remediation efforts.

Soil remediation programs are commonly structured and guided by governmental regulatory agencies. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issues the directives concerning requirements and approaches to soil remediation.

A variety of soil remediation methods are currently being used to reclaim and refresh contaminated soil. In most cases, the strategy used will be based what approach will deal most effectively with the nature of the contamination. Other factors considered include how the method will impact surrounding environment, as well as the degree to which the soil remediation effort will be effective. It is not uncommon for a given area of land to undergo more than one soil remediation operation if multiple contaminants must be managed.

Gasho specializes in selecting and supplying soil remediation equipment involving:

  • Soil Vapor Extraction – a soil remediation process used on-site to manage volatile contaminants in unsaturated soil.
  • Dual Phase Extraction – an on-site soil remediation technique, which employs the use of high vacuum pumps to remove contaminants.
