Soil Washing

Soil washing technology involves mixing the solvent (water) and contaminated soil in an extractor vessel.

The mixing dissolves the organic contaminant into the solvent.

Solvent and dissolved contaminants are then placed in a separator where the solute and solvent are separated and treated. The soils can be stockpiled, tested and used as inert material.
