Soil & Water Treatment

Lamor provides soil and water treatment services globally. We offer two lines of services: Recovery and Treatment & Disposal, which can be custom-designed to best suit a client’s project-specific needs, expectations and resources. An added feature is that our top-notch team works to build the services locally to comply with local regulations and to best suit the specific location and application.

Sludge Recovery & Treatment

Our clients have a wide range of needs for different types of sludge recovery and disposal/treatment projects. Lamor prides itself on our expertise to come up with the most efficient recovery process combined with a suitable treatment/disposal technique for a specific regulatory or operational environment at the lowest possible cost. Both mechanical and chemical separation technologies are utilized for effective recovery. Treatment technologies for the remaining non-recoverable material/solids include chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation.

Sludge Disposal with Thermal Treatment

Lamor offers thermal treatment services for oily sludge in cases where the in-flow of material is sufficiently steady and high in volume to support the process. This treatment type is highly recommended when the output can be utilized for industrial or domestic purposes. In addition to incineration, Lamor utilizes thermal desorption.

Soil Remediation

With a diverse technology portfolio, Lamor can provide treatment solutions for contaminated sediments for a wide range of contaminants from hydrocarbons to chlorine compounds. Lamor’s treatment technologies are suitable for different types of climates, soil types, environments, and regulatory frameworks. Generally, Lamor prefers to use in-situ treatment technologies such as electro kinetic treatment, chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation where the soil does not need to be excavated or transported. In most cases, in-situ treatment is also less disruptive to the environment. Other methods used for soil treatment include thermal treatment technologies.

Soil & Groundwater Remediation

The unique nature of the electro kinetic treatment technology (EKO/GRID™) used by Lamor enables the simultaneous treatment of polluted soil and contaminated groundwater to greater depths than by utilizing traditional treatment methods. This enables Lamor to offer more efficient and cost-effective solutions.

Industrial In-situ Remediation

Lamor offers a range of technology solutions, such as electro kinetic treatment, chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation for in-situ remediation, which have minimal effect on the clients’ business operations. This allows Lamor to significantly reduce the operating costs of the treatment and thus create significant savings for our client.

Soil & Water Treatment Reference Cases

Aliphatic hydrocarbons

Case Finland, 2008–2010

EKO/GRID™ was used to remediate soil in a former storage and distribution area for oil products. The pollution consisted mainly of diesel fractions (C10 – C21). After treatment, in 90 % of the treatment area the amount of contamination decreased by ~90 % and was below the environmental limits. The remaining contamination consisted of hard to treat soil type, which was removed for further treatment.

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Groundwater

Case Brazil, 2014

EKO/GRID™ was used to treat PAH-contaminated ground water in Brazil. For over 30 years, the area had served as a train terminal with a repair facility for cargo trains, resulting in a 30-year accumulation of pollutants. After the EKO/GRID™ treatment was deployed for only 3 months, the site was classified as clean with the PAH concentrations under the detection limits. A remarkable 93% decrease in the level of contamination occurred within the first 30 days of treatment.

Treatment of Hydrocarbon Polluted Sediment

Case Sweden, 2012–2014

EKO/GRID™ treatment system was used to treat contaminated bottom sediments in an equalization basin in Sweden that was contaminated with heating oil. The initial TPH concentration (C5 – C36) was 1 140 mg/kg on average. By the end of the treatment, the level of contamination decreased to the target level.

Combination of Mechanical Clean-up and Soil Remediation

Case Peru, 2014

An oil pipeline spill in Peru contaminated an area of 2 hectares. Lamor combined different remediation methods to optimize remediation of the area. The remediation treatments included pressure washing and mechanical removal of the contaminated vegetation and EKO/GRID™ treatment to oxidize the remaining hydrocarbons in the soil.

Sludge Recovery

Case Oman, 2011

The Lamor team provided services and equipment to skim and pump re-useable oil from waste oil pits in Oman. The separated oil was transported for further recovery.

Treatment of crude oil contaminated soil

Case Ecuador, 2014-2015

EKO/GRID™ was used successfully for the remediation of crude oil contaminated soil in Ecuador. The initial TPH varied between 2 500 and 35 000 mg/kg and the contamination depth reached four meters at places. The treated volume was approximately 6 000 m³.
