Course Description


The choices for remediating salt contaminated soil are limited. Often, excavating contaminated soil and placing it into a landfill facility is the only option. Depending on location and the amount of contamination, this is not always practical or economically viable.

The presentation will review some of the options available for in situ remediation of salts in soil, including a look at case studies involving Earthmaster’s PEPSystems® bacteria/plant technology as a sustainable method for treating contaminated soil and conserve it. The economics of using various methods to treat soil will be discussed along with the carbon benefits of leaving soil in place and treating it.
