Innovative Decommissioning

Due to the ingredients within Geobind, it is possible to return the original soil properties back to workable tolerances on any applicable temporary work projects. Traditional methods containing caustic Lime at high addition rates cause considerable long lasting damage to sub soil. Geobind does not contain Lime and is used at a reduced addition rate and is far superior to these methods. Upon decommissioning, the introduction of a re-agent to broken up Geobind treated soil and return of existing cultivated topsoil, ensures temporary work areas are returned to their original state.

Geotech employs a dust free system and thus there is no chance of airborne dust affecting other areas within the locality. This is beneficial in protecting nearby crops and water courses. The low depths to which Geobind is rotavated and its non-existent leachability prevent ingress into the water table. However, the utmost care is taken by Geotech to ensure water tables are not affected, this is avoided using rigorous investigative testing prior to deploying Geobind.

Expert teams of onsite testing, independent laboratory and experienced agricultural personnel ensure that the decommissioning process runs smoothly and yields the desired results. Testing undertaken within the lab pre-start gives the amount of reagent required to return soil properties, this is then rotavated into the soil by the same dust free methodology that the Geobind was originally applied. The agricultural team, then take over the site, reintroducing top soil, cultivating and seeding (if required/or seasonally appropriate). Further testing taken on site and within the laboratory then confirms sub soil values are returned to workable tolerances. Geotech frequently revisit decommissioned sites to monitor regrowth.

Geotech are happy to provide CPDs, attend landowner meetings and enter discussions with land agents. Geotech have immense pride and confidence in their decommissioning capabilities and will dedicate themselves to allaying the concerns of the landowner and land agents, thus unlocking new potentials to contractors seeking approval for new projects.
