We didn’t just create a company that makes soil clean and usable. We set out to do it using the most green technology and methods possible. Because what’s the point of cleaning the earth if you contaminate it in the process?
Reterro’s on-site treatment technology is unrivaled not only in mobility, cost effectiveness and speed-to-completion, but also in our unyielding commitment to sustainability. It’s the foundation of everything we do.
Our Evaporative Desorption Technology (EDT) process for soil remediation makes sure the only thing we leave at our sites is a successful clean up. Nothing else.
- Flameless & electric, providing the effectiveness of thermal treatment without the emissions & permitting challenges
- We adhere to regulated emission standards and can meet the standards in the most highly regulated air quality management districts
- Ability to treat contaminated soil ex-situ to regulatory levels & reuse soil on-site
- Eliminates transportation liabilities, safety issues & pollution associated with trucking. We keep thousands of trucks (& their emissions) off the road.
We understand that sustainability has ecological, economic, political, and cultural dimensions. It requires the reconciliation of environmental, social equity, and economic demands - also referred to as the "three pillars" of sustainability. Reterro’s focus is on the environmental pillar.
Our EDT is a green, remedial alternative, and considered a BMP by ASTM “Standard Guide for Greener Cleanups”.Reterro commissioned WSP to quantify its environmental footprint compared to dig and haul by comparing selected environmental impacts through a screening-level Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) with a Cradle-to-Grave system boundary. The LCA demonstrates that the use of an on-site remedial technology, despite the significant on-site energy demand, provides significantly lower environmental impacts compared to dig and haul. - A detailed summary may be found here.
