Contaminated area for requalification stopped for over 13 years due excessive remediation costs: fuel depot near Bologna.
Ecosurvey has been appointed to review the case of the 13 years dismissed industrial site abandoned due to excessive remediations costs: it proposed a solution of Green Remediation with low environmental impact. Within 10 mounts the following actions were approved: 1) the execution of new investigations, 2) the health and environmental risk analysis and 3) a new specific circular remediation project without wastewater discharges in compliance with the new Law 98/2013.
The site specific risk analysis will allow the recovery and develop of the former industrial site, near the city center, for the re-use into industrial, commercial or residential purpose: the green remediation project includes:
- groundwater circular remediation with full recovery of contaminated water;
- the exclusion of the need for wastewater discharges in sewer or surface water;
- drainage trench with minimization and recovery of contaminated soil;
- the effective management of soil excavation;
- remote control systems;
- low energy consumption.
The clean-up costs were integrated into the new develop project of the area and do not exceed about 10% of the total requalification costs.
