Envirotreat Technologies Ltd was commissioned by Chalcroft Construction to undertake remediation works at the DHL Distribution Depot in Droitwich. The remediation works involved the excavation and removal from site of 1,100m3 of diesel (hydrocarbon) impacted soils. The contaminated soils were shipped to the Treatment Hub in Swansea for subsequent treatment and reciprocally treated soils from the hub were imported to site to infill the voids created by the excavations. This ‘back to back’ recycling operation was carried out under the CL:AIRE Code of Practice. Additionally Envirotreat removed an underground storage tank and associated infrastructure prior to reinstatement with the recycled soils.
