Treatment of contaminated soil and waste
Decontamination of soil is a matter of separation.
Metso has been a leading supplier of separation processing equipment throughout the century. During the years the company has also developed equipment and methods for environmental control.
In 1984, before soil cleaning became part of the pollution control agenda, Metso was faced with the problem of cleaning a landfill site at a manufacturing plant for pesticides. A flowsheet involving pre-treatment classification, flotation and dewatering was developed and verified in pilot scale in our laboratories. Metso engineered and supplied the plant with guaranteed performance.

In the eighties, Dutch companies like Jaartsveld, Mosmans and Heidemij pioneered the flotation technique for soil cleaning with Metso Minerals as a major equipment supplier.
