Soil and/or groundwater may be contaminated anywhere there is or has been industrial activity. It often involves historic contamination, which dates back long before there was any question of enforceable environmental legislation.
These contaminated areas are treated step by step, making them suitable for re-use or change of use. This often requires complex remediation techniques.
DESOTEC’s mobile activated carbon filters are ideally suited for this and are therefore frequently deployed as part of the remediation process.
DESOTEC has built up extensive experience over the years throughout Europe and has developed specific types of filters in response to market demand.
DESOTEC does not carry out the remediation itself, but supplies the remediation contractor with a full service in respect of activated carbon and waste recycling. With remediation we mean cleaning up historic contamination, as well as cleaning up disasters on the spot, such as an overturned fuel oil tanker, a leaking petroleum pipeline or treating fire water following a conflagration on an industrial site.
DESOTEC currently supplies mobile filter systems in the whole of Europe for various types of remediation, cleaning up landfill sites, rehabilitating petrochemical sites, remediation of a former creosoting facility, etc.
