Soil Remedetion Asbestos

There are many ways of soil remediation, but it usually starts with how you want to deal with your soil that is affected by asbestos. As you can see from the list of the most popular services below, there are many possibilities. Below are methods ranging from simple disposal to in-situ treatment, as well as everything in between, such as off-site treatment and ex-situ on-site therapies.

Some contaminants are applied to the soil surface, such as asbestos and other agricultural chemicals. Others are released underground as a result of leaks from underground tanks, sewage pipes, or landfills. Hazardous compounds in the atmosphere can potentially be a source of difficulties. Furthermore, pollution is not always limited to a single location; it might seep into groundwater, be carried to surrounding land and waterways via rains, or dust to nearby land and waterways.

There are four primary soil remediation procedures for removing pollutants and pollution from soils that have amassed sufficient proof to warrant their usage.

Methods To Remove Asbestos From Soil


Bioremediation: Bioremediation  is the treatment of contaminated areas using biological methods.

Bacteria are used in the process, specifically designed to absorb and break down hydrocarbons and other contaminants from the environment. The procedure’s benefit also comes from the fact that all microorganisms die when the contaminant is swallowed. The asbestos affected soil can be cleaned using this way.

Nonetheless, the method is more successful in the dirt that maintains 70 degrees Fahrenheit with sporadic rain for adequate moisture. In addition, soils must be adequately covered and insulated for bioremediation to be practical in colder areas.

It’s because the longer the process of reclamation takes, the colder the ambient weather becomes—suppliers of Popular Bioremediation Services – Solutions, Delta Remediation Inc.


Thermal Soil Remediation: In this PTU, contaminated material like asbestos is heated to evaporate hydrocarbon pollutants and water.


Polluted materials are typically treated at temperatures ranging from 650 to 900 degrees Fahrenheit and then discharged from the PTU to a cooling unit, a mixer, or drill. Water is injected for cooling and dust management.

The treated material is subsequently discharged through a conveying system from the cooling unit, ready for testing and recycling.

The period of time it takes to complete the treatment technique is determined by several aspects, including the depth of the hydrocarbon pollution, the contaminant concentration level, the pH factor of the soil, and the dirt’s permeability.


Encapsulation: The encapsulation method isolates asbestos and other pollutants from dirt rather than filtering them. It can be accomplished in many ways, but one of the most common is combining contaminated land with lime, cement, and concrete, which prevents toxins from spreading to wash soil.


Soil washing: Soil washing is washing the soil with a liquid wash solution to remove dangerous pollutants like asbestos. Fine-grained soils, such as silts and clays, are washed away during this process, along with contaminants that are more likely to bond to fine soils. As a result, contaminated particles are separated from clean coarse-grained soils, such as sands and gravels, which can be reused safely. Because soil washing does not eliminate or destroy toxins, the contaminated soil must be disposed of in a licensed facility.


In many circumstances, soil remediation is required due to the health risks that soil contamination like asbestos provides to humans, animals, and plants.



Soil contamination is one of the world’s most serious problems, as it reduces soil production and compromises food security. Remediation or restoration of contaminated soil/sites is one of the top priorities on the Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) agenda. On the one hand, it is proposed that more environment friendly flushing reagents be explored and developed to replace existing refractory ones; on the other hand, it is advised that the Phyto-electrokinetic remediation strategy be promoted.
