1. GUARDHOUSE AND SCALE
Access to the site is controlled 24/7. Upon arrival, we check all waste material: origin, content, quantity, etc.
We sample and analyze each arrival in the laboratory.
Through laboratory analysis, we draw up a profile of the chemical and physical properties of the material, allowing us to validate its admissibility and a specific treatment for it. Safety measures are also established with these analyses.
This is where waste is treated in accordance with strict parameters to produce a final inert substance called “stablex.”
4. STORAGE AREA
Contaminated soils awaiting treatment are stored in a weather protected area.
5. RAILCAR UNLOADING STATION
Rail arrivals consist primarily of contaminated soils.
6. WATER STORAGE TANKS
All stormwater that enters the placement area is collected and stored in ponds for subsequent treatment.
7. STABLEX PLACEMENT AREA
Once the treatment at the plant is completed, we transport the stablex by truck to the placement area where it is placed in a secure, watertight cell to ensure permanent protection of the environment.
8. CLOSED CELLS
When complete, the stablex placement cells are hermetically sealed with several layers of cover (sand, clay, membrane, soil and vegetation). A complete network of observation wells allows monitoring of the integrity of the stablex.
