Sea-Chem's unique products help to regenerate brownfield sites by accelerating the natural decomposition of hydrocarbon pollutants - such as oil and gas - within contaminated soils, a process known as bioremediation. Cost-effective and totally sustainable, our soil treatments have quickly become established as leaders within the brownfield industry.
Other Case Studies
Russian Air Base, Werneuchen, Eastern Germany
Land underneath this site had become contaminated over a long period of time by a mixture of lubricant oils, hydraulic fluids and aviation fuel. Following excavation, the soil applied with Sea Power 101 and formed into biopiles. The vast majority of hydrocarbons were removed in the first 30 days, and the site was fully remediated within four months.
Tar Works, County Durham
Heavy oils and other toxic materials had been contaminated an area of 20,000m2 at this old industrial site. Soil was excavated, treated with Sea Power 101 and placed on windrows to accelerate the bioremediation process. The whole facility was successfully remediated after four months of treatment.
Private Property, Inverness
Following the failure of a domestic heating system, kerosene fuel had contaminated the ground underneath two private houses, producing a noxious atmosphere in one of them. Sea Power 101 was injected into the earth, along with oxygen, in a conventional in-situ process. The site was fully remediated with minimum disturbance to the residents.
Farmland, Avonbridge, Near Bristol
Failure of a valve on a brand new tanker carrying waste oils and diesel led to significant hydrocarbon leakage on this arable land. A very large excavation was carried out, and contaminated soil was placed in windrows and treated with Sea Power 101. Full remediation of the land was possible in six months.
Tar Factory, Rositz, Germany
This site had been producing tar for over 100 hundred years before it was decommissioned in 1992. During the Second World War, the factory was bombed causing extensive soil pollution, which was left untreated until the 1990s. Sea Power 101 was used on the site and showed itself to be highly effective in reducing the overall hydrocarbon content of the soil and in particular the notoriously stubborn PAHs.
