Various things can lead to soil contamination. Some examples include accidental spillages or leaks, historical industrial use of the land, landfill leachate leaks and agricultural activities. These contaminants must be removed or reduced for the land to be used safely. If they remain within the soil, they pose a serious risk to human health.
If part of the soil remediation process includes groundwater treatment, Jacobi’s AquaSorb™ range can be used to tackle the problems. Our technical experts will advise on which grade will give the best results according to your specific situation. The range can remove:
- Organic matter (COD)
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene)
- MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether)
- PFAS (Per-fluorinated alkylated substances)
- PAH Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
- THM (trihalomethanes)
- TCE (trichloroethylene) and PCE (tetrachloroethylene)
- Other contaminants
If heavy metals are present (including arsenic) then Jacobi’s range of ion exchange resins, Resinex, can be used to remove these.
