What is it?
In-situ an in-place method to treat contaminated soils. This is conventionally achieved by absorption, reduction or precipitation. It actively promotes chemical changes in the contaminants, converting them to less harmful or inert products. In-situ treatment methods will depend on the subsurface conditions and contaminant characteristics.
When and why use it?
In situ treatment is typically used to neutralise contaminants present in soils. This technique is very versatile and can be applied to various soils and contaminants such as working sites and soils located under existing buildings.
💡 Menard’s tip
In-situ treatment is a simple, cost effective treatment that has very little environmental impact.
