Reterro’s Successful Remediation Enables a Return to Productive Use For 45-Acre Site in Los Angeles Area
Project’s Completion Removes Liability Faced by Owner and Insurance Company; Follow-on Development Provides Potential Growth Spark for Local Economy
Livermore, CA, July 20, 2016 – Reterro, Inc., whose green remediation solution unlocks real-estate value by eliminating hydrocarbon and CVOC contamination from soil, announced today that the California Department of Toxics Substances Control (CAL EPA) has approved the balance of a significant remediation of chlorinated solvent contamination in the midst of a residential and light commercial/industrial location in the Los Angeles area.
The CAL EPA “Soil Corrective Action Completion” approval – achieved in two years -- covers the entirety of the site, which encompasses more than 45 acres. The agency approved the first phase of the project in 2015.
Reterro’s successful completion of the project removes liability for the contaminated soil from the site’s owner and insurance company. The site, whose estimated value has increased substantially, is now available for any use allowed under the local development plan. Project managers maintain that the surrounding area is poised for significantly increased economic activity as a result of planned development.
The project’s two-year timeframe extended from initial permitting, to clean-up of 100,000 tons of earth to aggressive soil-matrix and soil-vapor screening levels, to final approval. Reterro was chosen to perform the chlorinated solvent clean-up, because it was judged to be the most cost-effective in meeting public health and safety requirements.
Chlorinated Volatile Organic Compounds (CVOCs) are ubiquitous soil and groundwater contaminants because of their widespread use as solvents and de-greasing agents. Reterro is uniquely applicable for thousands of CVOC-contaminated sites in populated and space-constrained areas because of its unrivaled combination of prompt permitting, small operating footprint and unobtrusive on-site remediation.
“Reterro is extremely proud to enable this site to return to productive use,” said Reterro Chief Executive Officer Thomas P. Doyle. “Our small on-site footprint and flameless process is tailor-made for thousands of populated locations like this one. And our success in enabling the soil remediation closure far ahead of schedule demonstrates once again that Reterro provides the speediest, cleanest and most cost-effective approach to unlock the value trapped in long-contaminated sites.”
Reterro, Inc., provides the foremost compliant and curative green remediation solution for tens of thousands of locations worldwide that are government-mandated to clean ongoing hydrocarbon waste streams and undergo soil remediation for existing CVOC & hydrocarbon contaminated waste. Reterro is unsurpassed in mobility, cost-effectiveness and speed-to-completion, with a record of 100% certainty of efficacy. Uniquely effective in urban, populated and space-constrained environments in which health and safety restrictions prohibit competing technologies, Reterro is unrivaled in unlocking maximized real-estate value and economic vitality.
