Inside and outside the Netherlands, heavy industry and mining have contaminated the soil with heavy metals. In addition, it is possible that metallic compounds used in operational processes react with each other, which is undesirable. We can help you with this problem.
Immobilisation of the soil
The main concern with soil contamination due to landfill sites or other solid waste is the leaching of heavy metal into the soil and the subsequent contamination of underground and surface water. Heavy metals have very low solubility at a pH of 9 – 10, which means they effectively leach into the soil. Both magnesium oxide and magnesium hydroxide can be used as excellent pH modifiers to achieve these types of pH values.
