Cornwall’s first soil treatment facility gets under way at the Wheal Jane Earth Science Park

Wheal Jane Ltd is pleased to announce that UK Remediation Ltd, having secured the required planning consents and licenses, have now completed the construction of their new soil treatment facility on a small area within the Wheal Jane site, and are now open for business.

We are excited to now be able to offer Soil Remediation/treatment on the Wheal Jane site, representing an important addition to our current recovery and recycling services. The project will provide an important contribution to Cornwall‘s recycling targets as well as boosting the green credentials of our customers and the Wheal Jane site, all of which supports the ethos behind the creation and approval of the Wheal Jane Master Plan and the development of the Wheal Jane Earth Science Park.

Being the first of its kind in Cornwall, this new facility will be able to accept various hazardous and non-hazardous soils including contaminants such as ASBESTOS, HEAVY METAL and HYDROCARBONS. It will enable these contaminated soils to be treated using approved methods and used for the restoration of our Clemows Valley Tailings Dam. This process removes the need for the material to be transported much further afield, sometimes hundreds of miles, for disposal at landfill.  Removing the need for haulage reduces CO2 emissions and disposal costs for our customers.

Should you have an enquiry, or require further information, please contact us on.
