Rehabilitation of a former pesticide factory, France

Rehabilitation of a former pesticide factory

Remea, the Menard brand specialising in soil remediation, carried out rehabilitation work on a brownfield site in the Gard department to remove pollutants from the soil and water. Remea excavated some 70,000 cu. metres of soil and treated it at the bottom of the excavation. Following on-site analysis, more than 26,000 cu. metres of polluted soil were removed and disposed of. The remaining soil was backfilled in strict compliance with compaction and load-bearing capacity requirements.
