Soil Chemical Oxidation

Soil Chemical Oxidation

UNOF Environmental solutions specialise in the treatment of contaminated soil through chemical application.  The most common form of treatment is chemical oxidation (chemox for short).  Other forms of treatment include the chemical reduction of contaminants, and enhanced natural attenuation where appropriately selected materials are injected to achieve remedial targets.

Chemox involves oxidizing contaminants with the purpose of reducing the concentration.

The main benefits of Chemox are that contaminated soil and water can be treated in-situ (in the ground), and in difficult to access area.  Applying the chemical through injection lances (at pressure) essentially means that if the materials are accessible with a drill rig, then they can be treated with Chemox.  As usual the suitability of Chemox for your site depends on many factors.
