Heavy Metals in Soil: Treat with Blastox

What are Heavy Metals in Soil?

Blastox® 215 is used for stabilizing heavy metals in soil remediation projects. Its smaller particle size provides more reactive surface which is beneficial when stabilizing metals in soil for remediation projects. Due to the low dose rate and competitive pricing, Blastox® is a resource for many engineers and project managers.

If the contaminated heavy metals in 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 disposal as hazardous waste transportation and hazardous waste disposal are avoided, allowing for local, non-hazardous waste disposal.

Blastox saved $1.4 million in disposal cost

A developer near Detroit, MI wanted to redevelop a property with an ideal location for a freezer and cold storage warehouse. The issue being that the site used to be a junk yard and had high levels of lead contamination over a large portion of the site. The heavy metals in soil is associated with areas that lead-acid batteries were crushed inside cars and were left to drain and required lead fixation and soil remediation action.
