Remediation of Hazardous Substances
Hazardous substances and polluted soil have far-reaching consequences for people and the environment. Examples include chromium 6, asbestos and drug waste. Analysing mixed pollution, recommending the proper approach and safely remediating the pollution takes a great deal of expertise. We have the knowledge and the relevant certificates required to carry out the remediation the right way on a planned or urgent basis.
Removing chromium 6
In preparation for maintenance and other activities, we determine whether chromium 6 is present. If so, we develop an advisory plan with the input of our Senior Safety Expert. We can subsequently take on responsibility for its implementation. To ensure safety, we do this under light asbestos conditions.
Asbestos fibres that can have a major impact on health can be released into the atmosphere when building materials are processed. We remove asbestos in a professional and responsible way from homes and commercial buildings. We do this with our experienced team of expert asbestos removal supervisors and asbestos removal workers. This applies to planned remediations and to emergency situations, for example in the event of a fire.
In case of emergencies, our Incident Management department is available 24/7 to quickly and professionally organise the asbestos removal process.
Removing chemical waste and drug waste
Chemical incidents are a common occurrence on industrial sites and increasingly more frequently also in residential districts. We conduct tests to determine the nature of these substances and ensure that they are safely and quickly removed and disposed of.
Drug waste is a growing problem. With our specialised knowledge of this area, we clear synthetic drug labs and remove the waste safely and quickly. We subsequently provide for responsible transport and careful processing.
We package and tranship the materials in accordance with European guidelines under the supervision of a safety advisor. At the same time, we monitor air quality on a continuous basis. As soon as the waste is properly packaged, we take care of the ADR transport. Our operators are available 24/7 to deliver the chemical or drug waste, together with the proper certificates, to a recognised processor or storage facility.
If necessary, we carry out further soil remediation to ensure the site or the district is clean and safe. The soil is inspected in accordance withe the Soil Protection Act, after which it is released.
If drug waste is dumped into the sewer system or if chemical waste leaks into the sewage water or drug waste is dumped in manure basements, we also have the expertise required to remove the contamination, restore the site and release the location.
In case of an acute unsafe situation, our Incident Management department is available 24/7 to quickly and safely clean up chemical and drug waste and as such limit any impact on people or the environment.
