Remediation services – contaminated soil

KDC has extensive expertise and knowledge of soil remediation and can use several techniques and practical solutions to sustainably, clean contaminated land.  Many brownfield contaminants include hydrocarbon, polyaromatic hydrocarbon, chlorinated solvents, heavy metals, organic pollutants, asbestos, or invasive weeds.

Once the initial analysis is complete, we can deliver the best solution for your site within timescale and on budget by offering the following solutions:

Current high costs associated with Landfill Tax and the disposal of contaminated soils to landfill have led to a resurgence in on-site treatment and re-use of contaminated soils where possible.

KDC’s team of land remediation experts offers a full waste classification service, including delineating and managing waste stockpiles to offer the best lowest cost management strategy. This uses a hierarchy approach of re-use tax free off-site treatment or disposal, inert classification, non-hazardous and hazardous classification and disposal.

KDC also posses state-of-the art on-site analysis equipment which allows a dynamic approach to excavate and classify contaminated soils, in the field, without the need to await external laboratory results. With enormous time saving and safety benefits this can lead to a greater confidence of contamination throughout a site and can lead to significant cost savings.

KDC intends to operate a tax free soil treatment center in Scotland. This will be SEPA approved with all relevant licences in place; Applications are being progressed.

The KDC facility will treat soils contaminated with a wide range of industrial contaminants such as hydrocarbons (petrol, diesel oils) and heavy metals.

We can treat soils classed as hazardous waste for reuse within the KDC planned development, thus removing contaminants and avoiding landfill disposal and associated taxes.

This soil treatment centre will provide our customers with distinct commercial and environmental benefits, for example:

  • Highest quality environmental and safety standards audited and licensed by SEPA
  • 100% reuse of contaminated soils to eliminate landfill tax payments
  • Range of contaminants treated using sustainable treatment methods
  • All materials kept on site
  • Reduced project costs
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Good transport access
  • Fully compliant with WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme)

KDC provides complete end-to-end asbestos management solutions including supervision, asbestos removal, and remediation services on large and small-scale works.

Highly experienced in the management of asbestos, we hold a full three-year HSE asbestos licence.

We have a successful track record safely removing asbestos in a variety of markets including nuclear, energy and natural resources, chemical, pharmaceutical, public sector and industrial.

KDC Asbestos Removal teams trained and medically monitored to ensure that we take the utmost precaution whilst removing or disposing of asbestos. KDC invests heavily in training to guarantee that we use the most current and effective safety measures and procedures.

Asbestos has been in more than half a million buildings throughout the UK since the 1950s. If we find asbestos in your premises, you will need to take action depending on the asbestos identified within the survey and its condition.

In some instances it may safely remain in place providing it is encapsulated, not disturbed, is clearly labelled and its condition is regularly monitored.

KDC will ensure that our highly trained specialists safely control the remediation process to meet the requirements of all regulations. We are meticulous at every stage of the process, from the initial survey right through to the post-removal inspections.

We can deliver the optimum solution for your site within timescale and on budget by offering the following solutions.

Other soil cleaning solutions may include:

  • Bioremediation (ex-situ or in situ)
  • Selected excavation
  • Chemical Oxidation (ChemOx)
  • Thermal desorption
  • Chemical treatment
  • Air sparaging and soil vapour extraction
  • Steam enhanced soil vapour extraction
  • Stabilisation/solidification
