Description of Services:The facility biologically treats organically contaminated soils using biopile technology, which provides nutrients, moisture, and air to hydrocarbon-reducing bacteria in the contaminated soils. SITA FD is authorised to receive soil and sediment contaminated with hydrocarbons from industrial and government entities in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region and the BeNeLux countries. Currently, the facility treats more than 30,000 tons of soil per year, all of it from France.

The facility also accepts organically contaminated sludges, dredged from the beds of polluted canals and rivers and delivered in barges and plastic-lined dump trucks. Sludges that arrive by barge are transported from the canal to the two facility basins by plastic-lined dump truck. Water is pumped from the sludges and treated in the adjacent SITA water treatment facility. Sludges are allowed to dry for three months, then analyzed to determine whether they can be treated in the biopile or directed elsewhere.
