ExCAL Limited was appointed to act as Environmental Coordinator for the £11m reclamation of land occupied by the former Ebbw Vale steelworks.

A site investigation was undertaken to determine the nature the ground beneath the development site, and to quantify the presence of ground contamination.


Soils were identified that were contaminated by hydrocarbons.  In order to treat these materials a system of enhanced bioremediation was developed.  The system utilises the beneficial effects of green waste compost upon bioremediation rates. ExCAL supervised the bio-remediation process.  An on-site laboratory was established to allow quick and effective analysis and to minimise delays with site works.


In addition to the above, ExCAL also undertook the following activities on site:-


Environmental Management of the site;

Supervision of excavations to delineate areas of contamination;

Supervision of Waste Management Activities;

Liaison with the Local Authority and Environment Agency;

Noise and dust monitoring;

Onsite chemical testing.
