The operations will be extended to other Cory landfill sites if they prove a success. The announcement was made at a conference organised by the construction industry research body CIRIA in October.
Cory has a cell for stable non-reactive hazardous waste at its Himley landfill in Dudley. Churngold will use stabilisation and bioremediation processes to pre-treat soils for disposal in this cell. Churngold will rely on mobile plant licences the company already holds for remediation processes.
The announcement follows a similar agreement unveiled by Biffa and Biogenie in July (ENDS Report 355, pp 13-15 ), and forms part of the remediation industry's response to the ban on co-disposal landfill operations.
