What is Soil Remediation?

Soil remediation is the process of encapsulating heavy metals in contaminated soil sites to render them non-hazardous. If the contaminated soil exceeds the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) limits, stakeholders should be aware that remedial applications, such as Blastox exists that can be added directly to the soil to render it non-hazardous.

This significantly drives down the cost of soil remediation disposal as hazardous waste transportation and hazardous waste disposal are avoided, allowing for local, non-hazardous waste disposal.

Because of its effectiveness, Blastox had been used successfully on thousands of tons of heavy metal contaminated soil. Its chemistry has a proven long-term stability benefit. You can apply it at low dose rates and have peace of mind knowing that the soil remediation waste will remain stable, always.

Blastox 215 is a derivative of the same chemical formulation as that found in our Blastox® product. Its smaller particle size provides more reactive surface which is beneficial when stabilizing heavy metals for contaminated soil remediation projects. Due to the low dose rate and competitive pricing, Blastox® 215 is becoming an effective resource for many engineers and also project managers.

Blastox® 215 Technical Data

Product Description: Blastox® 215 is a patented, fine granular, complex calcium silicate-based additive. It therefore stabilizes heavy metals including lead and cadmium. Applications include heavy metal-contaminated treatment, brass spent molding sand stabilization as well as furnace emissions waste stabilization.

This saved the contractor over $1.4 Million in disposal costs, saving the project and allowing them to continue working.
