Success is very much predicated on having a solid technical understanding of complex chemical and biological interactions, coupled with a pragmatic approach to ensure a cost effective outcome.
The treatment of contaminated wastes is a core area of expertise for DBD Environmental. This ranges from industrial waste, groundwater, contaminated soil, and surface water, involving an array of projects. These treatment processes have involved a broad range of contaminants in a range of mediums such as:
The treatment approach differs depending on the contaminant type, mix of contaminants and the matrix it is contained within. DBD Environmental personnel have experience in designing and operating a range of treatment equipment and processes including packaged water treatment plants, specialised soil treatment machines such as the Komatsu Reterra, and facility fixed plant equipment. The processes undertaken include the following:
DBD Environmental also have laboratory facilities that allow treatment trials to be undertaken. These trials can be used to develop new treatment approaches, optimise existing approaches or to gain regulatory approvals. Our skilled scientists and engineers are able to design and develop a fit for purpose treatment approach to meet required outcomes.
