Our Process Description Per Regulatory Guidelines
The process is described as a physical improvement of the waste in order to create a beneficial reuse of the material. We use a proprietary blend of cementious material. The process is accepted by the California Regional Water Quality Control Board under Order 91-93 General Waste Discharge Requirements for Discharge of Non-Hazardous Contaminated Soils and Other Wastes in Los Angeles River and Santa Clara River Basins, adopted by The Regional Water Board on July 22, 1991.The soil cuttings are stabilized by Soli-Bond Inc. through a proprietary process that uses precipitating reagents together with specially formulated oxides to accomplish an irreversible chemical stabilization of the contaminants present, therefore reducing the leachability of the contaminants to a rate that is not detrimental to human health and the environment. The soil cuttings contamination consists of total petroleum hydrocarbons, non-hazardous levels of heavy metals and non-detect levels of semi-volatiles and volatile organic compounds that are communally found in drilling muds and cuttings.
This is the description of our process taken directly from the permits that are issued to my clients by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Board after we submit our request for reuse of the processed drilling waste.
