Auto manufacturer saves tens of millions with our approach to site remediation

saved by avoiding decades of treatment

Summary

  • An auto manufacturer received a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) mandate to assess trichloroethylene (TCE) contamination at a nearly 30-acre site, including groundwater.
  • To address the mandate, the manufacturer relied on our remediation expertise, local regulatory knowledge, and ability to solve difficult technical challenges while maintaining positive relationships with regulators.
  • We successfully made the case to regulators that 95% of the area didn’t require active remediation, saving our client a significant amount of money while still meeting its main aim of protecting human health and the environment.
  • We also proposed an innovative bioremediation approach for an area where groundwater was highly contaminated — a more effective, cheaper solution than a traditional pump-and-treat system.
