PROJECT: ARCO REFINERY – WORLD OIL TANK FARM
CLIENT: BELSHIRE ENVIRONMENTAL
LOCATION: SOUTH GATE, CA
After demolition of oil storage tanks, excavation of 4,000 tons of soluble lead and hydrocarbon contaminated soil was unearthed. After thorough analytical testing, it was determine the average level of contamination was 65-85 mg/L STLC lead and above 1,000 PPM TPH. Because of Soli-Bond, Inc.’s extensive refinery safety training and expertise in remediation of contaminated soils and sludges, we were contacted to formulate a remediation program.
Soli-Bond, Inc. was contracted for remediation services. A thorough chemical stabilization treatability study was performed to evaluate the reagent type, recipe and effectiveness on the contamination present. Following the successful verified treatability study, Soli-Bond, Inc. mobilized its Transportable Treatment Unit (TTU) permitted through the State of California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC).
Remedial actions included screening of all material prior to processing, chemical stabilization processing and stockpiling for successful process verification.
Upon successful verification sampling the processed material was loaded into semi end-dump trucks and transported to a Class III landfill and used as daily cover for municipal refuse.
