SUEZ deconstructs industrial sites at the end of their life and we decontaminate soil and groundwater. The aim is always to achieve optimum levels of recovery and re-use, while safeguarding health and safety. SUEZ has the comprehensive expertise required to ensure site safety, regulatory compliance and recovery of resources.
The dismantling and decontamination process requires careful planning. We follow a rigorous procedure, which includes these key steps:
From an audit of the risks and scoping the project to defining the human and technical resources to be mobilised and a risk management plan.
Hazardous waste removal
We identify, sort and prepare the wastes for transportation.
We dispatch the waste streams to the most appropriate recovery and treatment facilities.
We manage or advise on the disassembly of equipment and buildings.
and decontamination has many facets, and can be critical for
development projects as well as the environment. We enable you to
optimise how the work is managed and executed by:
We guarantee extremely strict monitoring of health and safety conditions on our remediation sites. This will involve:
Efficient and responsible site deconstruction and decontamination involves recycling and recovering as much waste as possible as new resources. This, in turn, requires real-time monitoring of waste streams and expert management of hazardous waste.
Our sophisticated cleaning methods limit risks to health, safety and the environment, while maximising the recovery and quality of materials for re-use in industrial processes.
Our systems are geared to:
Hazardous wastes must be managed separately. We provide the logistics for treating these wastes, enabling you to:
Given the right treatment, hazardous waste too can yield secondary raw materials or energy. The advantages of our approach include:
The Stockholm Convention adopted in EU legislation calls for the elimination of PCBs by 2025. Our comprehensive service:
Where recycling or re-use are not feasible, we can recover value by using waste as an alternative fuel. For example co-incineration of liquid and solid oily wastes helps replace fossil fuels.
This also has the advantage of reducing energy costs, while offering a more sustainable disposal option for this waste.
The decontamination work can be carried out on site or the soils can be excavated for treatment elsewhere. Our experts and the patented processes they use can, in most cases, generate a second life for this natural resource – as well as regenerating the site itself for new use, such as housing development.
Our decontamination solutions, designed to promote recovery and cost benefits through material re-use, cater for various types of contamination and the configuration of sites. They include:
As with other resources in waste, we have developed techniques to put soils to good use. Features of this process include:
SUEZ is at the forefront of the latest techniques developed to ensure effective remediation, whilst respecting the natural environment.
SUEZ uses its own dedicated laboratory to test naturally-present compounds and the characteristics of the contamination, to ensure the most efficient restoration results.
