Ex-Situ Remediation Project

Soil Solutions HMR was the remediation contractor on the Quest Technologies construction project in Clifton, NJ to treat over 25,000 tons of lead-contaminated urban fill. We created the ex-situ soil treatment plan (STP), managed all chemical delivery logistics and onsite storage, and supervised soil processing. Nordic Construction supplied excavation and loading equipment for soil handling and management. After successful treatment, the soils were sampled, reclassified as non-hazardous, and transported by dump trailer to disposal and re-use sites as daily cover material at a nonhazardous NJ landfill.

  • SSHMR remediation 1,000 – 1,500 tons of contaminated soil per day.
  • No extra heavy equipment needed, providing substantial cost savings.  
  • Reclassification of treated material as nonhazardous on site, avoiding the paperwork, hassle and charges of hazardous disposal.
  • TCLP baseline: 65 mg/l to 105 mg/l. TCLP treated: <0.1mg/l to ND.
