With more than 20 branches in America and Europe, Biogenie/Englobe is one of the major players in the area of treating polluted soil. At the location in Northern France we acquired a contract for purifying 60,000 tonnes of polluted soil with a mobile installation of Van Zandwijk Grondreiniging.
In September we started the first phase of the activities and -in the meantime- over 30,000 tonnes of polluted soil has been purified. The released residual products are reused in the concrete and road construction industry.
Phase 2 starts soon. This concerns soil with various types of contamination such as oil, PCB, sulphates, chlorides and heavy metals.
