Exclusively accepted for treatment

By mobile unit

For the treatment of the following contaminants, Northex establishes a unique treatment plan for each site, these include: 

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB)
  • Treatment of PCB contaminated soil is possible. A physicochemical characterization of the contaminant in our laboratories will be necessary in order to establish a treatment plan. Contact us for more information.
Cyanide (CN-)
  • Treatment of soil contaminated with cyanide is possible. A site characterization study will be necessary in order to formulate a treatment plan focused on the specifics of the site and the contaminant. Contact us for more information.
Dioxins & Furans
  • The treatment of soil contaminated with dioxins and furans depends on the nature of the contamination. Contact us for more information.
Mercury (Hg)
  • Like cyanide, treatment of soils contaminated with mercury is possible. A site characterization study will be necessary in order to formulate a treatment plan. Contact us for more information.
