11 soil treatment centres in Quebec to meet regional needs

Englobe now has eleven contaminated soil treatment centres  to meet the needs of the various local and regional markets in Quebec. All the centres use the same biopile bioremediation treatment process. This soil treatment process is quick and economical, making it more accessible to excavation contractors, real estate developers and industries. Thanks to this process, we can collaborate with clients efficiently from the excavation to the loading to the transport of the soil to our centres.

Once the soil is on site, we treat it using not only biopiling but we also determine whether to dispose of it or recycle it. This soil management cycle is done in full respect of the environment and with the approval of the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, and Fight Against Climate Change (MELCC).

Since each centre responds to regional needs, each has its own specializations. Below is more information on each centre.
