Shanks Soil Solutions is born

Shanks Waste Management has re-branded its contaminated land department as Shanks Soil Solutions (SSS).
The company arm that deals with the rehabilitation of Brownfield sites, making them safe for future use, has developed a treatment capability which utilises a number of robust technologies including Bio Logics bio remediation.
This capability can be deployed either on contaminated sites or at soil hospitals, with the technology used alongside traditional methods such as landfill.
Shanks expertise in assessing laboratory analysis ensures that the treatment method is both fit for purpose and provides best value for the client.
SSS director Mark Gillingham said: Shanks is re-focusing its contaminated land business to more closely recognise the needs of industry. The services we provide offer an immediate off site solution for Brownfield site redevelopment.
By approaching the problem of contaminated land in this way, redevelopment is not delayed by time consuming and often uncertain remediation treatments, and contaminated soil is treated as a valuable resource.
The soil hospitals also use thermal treatment and composting on materials such as demolition waste and fly ash with it acknowledged that reusing Brownfield sites is essential in protecting the environment and Greenfield sites across the country.
