Access to the site is controlled 24/7. Upon arrival to the site, we inspect all waste material, verifying its origin, content, quantity, etc.
We use laboratory analysis to create complete profiles of each type of waste. Once we know the chemical and physical properties, we can determine whether or not they can be accepted by Stablex. If they are, we will then determine which treatment process is most suitable and what type of safety measures are needed to store the waste safely on our site.
Each arrival is sampled and analyzed at our laboratory.
3. WATER COLLECTION
A water-tight barrier surrounds Stablex’s property and ensures that any liquid from our site is recovered. Any such liquid is always properly treated.
This is where waste is treated in accordance with strict parameters to produce a final inert substance called “stablex.”
5. STORAGE AREA
All contaminated soil awaiting treatment is stored in a building to protect it from the elements.
6. TRAIN UNLOADING HANGAR
Deliveries arriving by train generally contain contaminated soil.
7. ROAD TO PLACEMENT AREA
This is the road trucks use to carry stablex to the placement area.
8. WATER STORAGE TANKS
Rainwater that falls in the placement area is collected and stored in tanks so that it can be treated at a later date.
9. STABLEX PLACEMENT AREA
Once waste has been treated at the plant, we transport the stablex to the placement area, where it is kept in safe, water- and air-tight cells to permanently protect the environment.
10. SEALED CELLS
Once a cell has been filled, it is covered with a water- and air-tight seal made up of with several layers of clay and a membrane. The cells are then covered with earth and vegetation. We operate a comprehensive network of observation wells to make sure the integrity of the stablex is maintained.
