Firing Range Remediation

What is Firing Range Remediation?

This discussion includes some key characteristics affecting potential firing range remediation as well as recommended best practices.

  • Firing Range Remediation Design Parameters for Effective Lead Management
  • Managing Lead Environmental Impact at Operating Ranges 
  • Site Specific Considerations for Operating and Closed Facilities 
  • Recommended Best Practices for Range Remediation

Blastox® 215: Lead Management for Shooting Range Remediation Projects

If the contaminated area exceeds the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) limits, stakeholders should be aware that firing range remediation applications such as Blastox exists that can be added directly to the site to render it non-hazardous. This significantly drives down the cost of disposal and hazardous waste disposal is avoided, allowing for, non-hazardous waste disposal.

Blastox® 215 smaller particle sizes provide more reactive surface which is beneficial when stabilizing lead for contaminated firing range remediation projects. Furthermore, the low dose rate and competitive pricing, Blastox® 215 is becoming an effective resource for many facilities.

At these dose levels, the per ton treated cost ranges from $6.60 – $16.50 per ton of remediated soil.  When compared to hazardous waste disposal, it’s clear that Blastox 215 is very cost effective heavy metal fixation reagent.

In addition to managing firing range remediation projects, it’s being used successfully on thousands of tons of 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 waste will remain stable, always.

About Us

For more than 30 years, TDJ Group has assisted the metal casting industry (ferrous & non-ferrous), lead paint sandblasting, and soil remediation industries in the stabilization of heavy metal contaminated wastes. More than 1,000,000 tons of industrial wastes have been eliminated or safely stabilized using TDJ chemistries, and more than 150,000,000 square feet of lead paint have been removed using TDJ chemical abrasive additives. Together, this helps minimize the impact of lead hazards across many industries. Companies that perform environmental remediation services are realizing the cost savings and long term stability features that our chemistries afford. TDJ chemistries are the industry model for safe, cost-effective solutions for heavy metal waste treatment and firing range remediation projects.
