  • Erosion & sediment control solutions for soil remediation

    REMEDIAL ACTION PRACTICES include the requirements to develop erosion and sedimentation control plans, specifying plan content and soil conservation measures to keep sediment–laden mud from washing into storm sewers and watersheds where debris can clog creek channels and choke off aquatic life. Sediment control BMPs combine structural and non–structural measures used to avoid or minimize pollutants accumulated by environmental hazards across impervious surfaces.

  • In-Situ Soil & Groundwater Remediation

    The use of H2O2 to chemically oxidize the contaminants into mineralized products (CO2 , salts, and readily biodegradable organic fragments) offers a number of advantages over these current treatment methods. Benefits of Soil Decontamination by Chemical Oxidation: The reagent used (H2O2) is inexpensive, readily available, and has as its reaction products water and oxygen; The chemistry of the process (Fenton's Reagent) has been known for over 50 years and its applicability to a wide variety of contaminants is well documented; The process is easily applied and controlled; The treatment occurs rapidly, lasting from a few hours to a few weeks; The process produces no by-product wastestreams, and can be tuned for the degree of contaminant removal desired. This allows it to be used synergistically with other technologies such as biotreatment or soil washing.

    Scalewatcher North America, manufacturer of the original, patented and award-winning computerized electronic water-conditioner, states in its literature that the device is produced to last at least 20 years and comes with a 10 year warranty. However, no reports have been received on the longevity of the units sold since the company was launched over 20 years ago. Now a customer in Gilroy, California has come forward requesting a new Scalewatcher unit after the device she purchased in 1992 finally stopped working. She purchased the new Scalewatcher from local dealer, Aqua Genesis, and reported that: “ I noticed that the sprinklers are covering more of an area than before. When I squirt water on the black and white tile patio table there are no longer any calcium spots even if I do not dry it off. The tile shower and the clear shower door are easier to wipe down after my shower. The new ScaleWatcher is much better than before. It certainly was time to replace the old one.” The new, innovative, electronic Scalewatcher water conditioner uses proven technology to quickly and effectively dissolve existing limescale and prevent it recurring, returning water systems and water-fed appliances such as kettles, washing machines and dishwashers to their former efficiency. It also removes scale around faucets, sinks, baths, plugholes and shower roses as well as preventing white marks on shower screens and mould on shower curtains. The system requires no plumbing, chemicals or maintenance and is environmentally friendly. In addition scale costs money for householders through additional cleaning products, the early renewal of water–fed equipment and additional costs to heat water. It is estimated that 40% more energy is needed to heat water in a system fouled with ¼ inch of limescale. Commenting Jan de Baat Doelman, President of Scalewatcher North America says: “We have always built Scalewatcher electronic water conditions to last and this latest information confirms the device’s longevity. Scalewatcher will pay for itself in less than three years and then carry on providing homes with a scale free environment many more years to come. ” Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America.

    Angel*Haus Condominium, a condo community in Purgatory’s Durango Mountain Resort, Colorado, has replaced its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. By installing Scalewatcher, the condominum has improved the water quality, removed the need to buy and store salt and substantially reduced its water costs. Angelhaus Condominium is a modernised 40 unit building containing individually owned one, two and three bedroom units. Located at the base of the Durango Mountain Resort and less than 200 yards from the base lifts, the units are primarily rented out by their owners for skiing and walking vacations. The managing agents were spending around $100 a month on salt for the condominium’s water softener in addition to a further $200 to $700 for regular maintenance to calibrate the unit. Despite this expenditure, owners regularly complained about the poor water quality. “I would also have to spend time and effort hauling the salt downstairs to where the softener was located and I was also conscious we were flushing water down the drain”, said Sarelyn Saint, Managing Agent at Angel*Haus Condominium. Looking for an alternative solution for Angel*Haus Condominiums’ hard water problem, Sarelyn Saint decided to investigate the Scalewatcher system. After presenting the information to his board it was decided to install a Scalewatcher unit onto the main water line. “We had a board meeting just two months after the system was installed and our board members mentioned that they could tell the difference with the water, particularly the dishes and taste of the water”, concluded Sarelyn Saint. “We no longer have to budget for water treatment but best of all I don’t even have to think about it anymore and neither do the owners”. Condos are often on a shared water or loop system, with the pipes running from one unit to the next or are all fed off of a main valve. In hard water areas, scale quickly builds up in pipes and water fed applicances meaning that the water supply has to be regularly turning off for maintenance. Shutting off the service to one unit often means shutting off the service to all the units for work to be carried out. To alleviate the problems, many condominiums purchase water softeners. However, water softeners use copious amounts of both water and salt, which are expensive to buy and salt is also bulky to store. In addition, in many States now, including Southern California, municipalities and water departments are severely limiting, and in some cases prohibiting, the use of salt-regenerating water softeners due to concern regarding the increased levels of salt in ground water. The award-winning Scalewatcher system not only helps building managers meet these regulations by minimizing salt usage but also saves money on salt purchase and has the additional benefit of removing scale from water-fed equipment. The environmentally friendly Scalewatcher provides a permanent solution to hard water problems without the need of chemicals, salt or maintenance. It works by producing a varying electronically applied force field, induced by a coil wrapped around the outside of the pipework, which keeps the minerals in suspension and thus prevents limescale forming. The water’s increased solubility enables it to dissolve existing scale, which is gradually washed away. Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches.

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for site remediation

    The contamination of soils as a result of prior chemical production can often be unpredictable and diverse. The majority of such pollutants will require an ex-situ treatment method. Many of our VacuDry units can be used for direct-feeding contaminated soils. To reduce the input amount for thermal treatment, the VacuDry units can also be used in combination with soil-washing plants: In this case, customers only feed the high polluted fractions and screened fines (e.g. below 10 mm), as well as the filter-cake from the soil washing process. However, we are able to handle soil contaminated with mercury, hydrocarbons, PAH, PCB, dioxins, furans, organic-lead compounds and many more. VacuDry plants for on-site ex-situ remediation projects are delivered in a modular design.

    Waste recovery for mining wastes

    Mining waste typically arises from the limitation of the installed technologies of an operation, e.g. where fines cannot be tolerated. They are associated with mine workings and often contain valuable and/or hazardous materials. The hazardous content, which are often the valuable fractions within this waste are typically metals. Spread of metal toxicants in association with tailings particles, through a combination of wind dispersion or if washed into the soil or rivers, can have a highly damaging effect on the environment. Crucially, as time moves on, the mine tailing of one generation become the resource of the next.

    Water Treatment Solutions for Turbidity Removal

    Turbidity is a measure of the loss of light transmittance through a liquid due to suspended particles. The more particles in the water, the murkier it looks or the higher the turbidity. This is a measure of the quality of the water. It is measured in units called Nephelometric Turbidity Units (NTU). Turbidity can be caused by run off after a heavy rain as erosion washes soil into a river or lake. It is often increased in the spring and fall when the water temperature at different levels in a lake change causing a turnover of those levels, bringing sediment, plants, and algae to the top.

    Shredders for Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Refrigerators

    Electric and electronic waste (WEEE), are coming from technology products such as home appliances (washing machines, vacuum cleaners), computers and tools. An economy based on the consumption such as today, provides a continuous increase of WEEE, and determines an increasing risk of dropping out in the environment or in landfills, with the consequences of pollution of soil, air, water and health human repercussions. These products should be handled properly and used for the differential recovery of the materials they are made of, such as copper, iron, steel, aluminum, glass, silver, thus avoiding a waste of resources that can be reused to build new equipment in addition to the environmental sustainability.

  • Erosion & sediment control solutions for costal/beach region

    Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, or drainage. Removing sand and other materials from beaches and dunes due to tidal storm surges and construction purposes causes massive beach erosion damages and land loss of seashores, thus destroying the natural heritage of the coast and reducing the vibrancy of the tourism industry. Uprooting vegetation from coastal areas destabilises beaches and clearing sites inland results in increased soil and dirt particles being washed offshore and smothering coral reef systems.
