SUEZ follows a thorough process to remediate a site, consisting of several key steps that are codified and defined in the standard LNE NF X 31-620-1-2-3-4:
Methodological developments and increasingly complex problems (remediation targets, geology of the environments, complex pollutants, etc.) mean that laboratory and/or field tests have now become an essential phase in certain remediation operations.
The experts in SUEZ’s internal laboratory have developed numerous tests to verify the effectiveness of remediation solutions in advance.
We are capable of testing most remediation techniques and have all the equipment required to perform chemical or geotechnical analyses in the laboratory. We also use numerous field tests to try out the most appropriate techniques directly on site and to assess their performance.
Laboratory and field tests provide valuable decision support for the choices of the technical and economical optimisation of a treatment solution.
The advantages of laboratory and/or field tests:
Our teams perform a variety of general operations to prepare the site to be treated in order to guarantee the success of our remediation missions:
Our remediation solutions can be used on the site where the soil is located, or off-site. From the treatment of soil polluted by hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, metals, etc., to the control of pyrotechnical pollution, our experts can remediate polluted sites and land to offer them a second lease of life.
We offer various treatment solutions for pollution that depend on the deadlines or the configuration of the site:
We intervene in different situations: infrastructure projects, civil works, rehabilitation of industrial sites, treatment of pyrotechnical waste.
Site remediation involves tracking the waste in real time, managing hazardous waste and recycling waste that can be recovered as new materials.
After reception and inspection of the polluted soil, it is trated, sorted and sent for either recovery or disposal. The NEOTER® platform can be used for different types of treatments and pretreatments, including screening, crushing, washing, biotreatment or dewatering.
These platforms comply with the current regulations (sites classified for environmental protection, authorisations, development applications, etc.).
Depending on the situation, we encourage the use of alternative means of transport to roads, such as waterways, especially for the transportation of polluted earth to the treatment centres to reduce CO2 emissions and optimise your logistics. The advantages of the alternative means of transport are :
We strictly control the health and safety conditions on our rehabilitation sites. Our field staff is trained in the rules of conduct to be obeyed. Moreover, our QHSE organisation:
We work closely with our customers to define the best solutions together.
