Advanced Soil Treatment Plant

The Acumen Process Plant is a mobile soil treatment system that is a sustainable alternative to landfill for the disposal and treatment of contaminated soils during site remediation.

We take the mobile plant to sites that have been contaminated for a wide variety of reasons, from the pollutants from the UK’s industrial past, present day chemical contamination and unexpected spillages through to major environmental incidents.

It uses a unique range of solutions to remove contaminants from land affected by a wide variety of materials including poly-aromatic hydrocarbons, mineral oils, toxic metals, cyanides and many other inorganic and organic contaminants.

The equipment scrubs the soil to remove the contaminants, and then grades the different particles into separate fractions for recycling. It also uses proprietary additives in solution and a unique high-pressure enclosed loop induction system to clean the contaminated materials. During the process, the contaminants are captured in the wash water and silt phases for further treatment.
