GFL offers ex-situ bioremediation for contaminated soils, and will arrange for excavation and transportation of your soil to one of our licensed remediation facilities.
Bioremediation is an environmentally-responsible, energy-efficient and competitive alternative to disposing of contaminated soil in landfills.
It is a proven and effective technology for the decontamination of soils containing organic contaminants such as straight-chain hydrocarbons, and polycyclic organic compounds such as PAHs. This type of biological treatment system does not involve significant energy inputs or result in the sterilization of the soil, unlike systems involving thermal or chemical processes.
We treat soils contaminated from:
Our soil treatment capabilities include:
Once at our facilities, soil is remediated for re-use as top soil or fill at agricultural, residential, commercial and industrial properties. Ex-situ soil treatment typically requires shorter time periods for achieving the required destruction levels and — due to the ability to homogenize and screen the material — provides greater certainty regarding the uniformity of treatment.
All GFL soil remediation facilities are licensed and fully regulated by local environmental authorities. They operate to the highest standards of safety and quality, and collectively manage over 3.5 million tons of soil per year.
GFL’s Project Area Tracking Hub (PATH) provides users an end-to-end soil management tracking software solution.
Created to assist project leaders and receiving sites effectively manage their soil projects, PATH offers real-time monitoring of approval status, loads received, number of loads outstanding, and placement. It is also able to match source site excess soil projects to available receiving sites, project administration for excess soil management, and on-site excess soil management.
