New centre in the port of Liege

Sol&Val Monsin is Envisan’s latest asset. This treatment centre is specialised in the treatment of contaminated soils, predominantly from the southeast of Belgium. Together with the centre in Saint-Ghislain – which covers the southwest – Envisan now covers the whole of Wallonia.

The lay-out of the site with a shed, a large site and an administrative building is almost a copy of the site in Saint-Ghislain.

The soils treated by Sol&Val Monsin mostly come from industrial sites and contain heating oil, chemicals and/or heavy metals.

Matthieu Goblet, manager of the centre, gives a word of explanation: “We make a distinction according to the level of contamination. The most contaminated soils are kept in the shed, which is always closed and has been equipped with a powerful ventilation system. Less contaminated soils are stored in the open air. Obviously, it rains on these soils and the concrete slab slopes gently so that the rainwater is drained into a basin with a total capacity of 550 m³. This water is purified before it is pumped into the sewage system. This centre is also one of the most automated centres, drivers can execute all steps – reporting, delivery of freight, weighing before and afterwards – without leaving their cabin.”
