Lamor provides soil and water treatment services globally. We offer two lines of services: Recovery and Treatment & Disposal, which can be custom-designed to best suit a client’s project-specific needs, expectations and resources. An added feature is that our top-notch team works to build the services locally to comply with local regulations and to best suit the specific location and application.
Our clients have a wide range of needs for different types of sludge recovery and disposal/treatment projects. Lamor prides itself on our expertise to come up with the most efficient recovery process combined with a suitable treatment/disposal technique for a specific regulatory or operational environment at the lowest possible cost. Both mechanical and chemical separation technologies are utilized for effective recovery. Treatment technologies for the remaining non-recoverable material/solids include chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation.
Lamor offers thermal treatment service for oily sludge in cases where the in-flow of material is sufficiently steady and high in volume to support the process. This treatment type is highly recommended when the output can be utilized for industrial or domestic purposes. In addition to incineration, Lamor utilizes thermal desorption.
With a diverse technology portfolio, Lamor is able to provide treatment solutions for contaminated sediments for a wide range of contaminants from petroleum hydrocarbons to chlorine compounds. Lamor’s treatment technologies are suitable for different types of climates, soil types, environments, and regulatory frameworks. Generally, Lamor prefers to use in-situ treatment technologies such as electrokinetic treatment, chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation where the soil does not need to be excavated or transported. In most cases, in-situ treatment is also less disruptive to the environment. Other methods used for soil treatment include thermal treatment technologies.
The unique nature of the electrokinetic treatment technology (EKO/GRID™)used by Lamor enables the simultaneous treatment of polluted soil and contaminated groundwater to greater depths than offered by competitors. This capability enables Lamor to offer more efficient and cost-effective solutions for clients.
Lamor offers a range of technology solutions such as electrokinetic treatment, chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation for in-situ remediation. Our promise to our client is to provide a solution that has minimal effect on the client’s business operations. This enables Lamor to significantly reduce the operating cost of the treatment and create significant savings for our client.
Case Finland, 2008 – 2010
EKO/GRID™ was used to remediate soil in a former storage and distribution area for oil products. The pollution consisted mainly of diesel fractions (C10 – C21). After treatment, in 90 % of the treatment area the amount of contamination decreased by ~90 % and was below the environmental limits. The remaining contamination consisted of hard to treat soil type, which was removed for further treatment.
Case Brazil, 2014
EKO/GRID™ was used to treat PAH-contaminated ground water in Brazil. For over 30 years, the area had served as a train terminal with a repair facility for cargo trains with the resultant 30-year accumulation of pollutants. After the EKO/GRID™ treatment of only 3 months, the site was classified as clean with the PAH concentrations under the detection limits. It is worth notifying that a 93% decrease in the level of contamination occurred within the first 30 days of treatment.
Case Sweden, 2012 – 2014
EKO/GRID™ treatment system was used to treat contaminated bottom sediments an equalization basin in Sweden that were contaminated with heating oil. The initial TPH concentration (C5 – C36) was 1 140 mg/kg on average. By the end of the treatment, the level of contamination decreased to the target level and, in most sampling spots, the contamination levels were under the detection limit of the analysis method.
Case Peru, 2014
An oil pipeline spill in Peru contaminated an area of 2 hectares. Lamor combined different remediation methods to optimize remediation of the area. The remediation treatments included pressure washing and mechanical removal of the contaminated vegetation and EKO/GRID™ treatment to oxidize the remaining hydrocarbons in the soil.
Case Oman, 2011
The Lamor team provided services and equipment to skim and pump useable oil from waste oil pits in Oman. The separated oil was transported for further recovery.
Case Ecuador, 2014-2015
EKO/GRID™ was used successfully for the remediation of crude oil contaminated soil in Ecuador. The initial TPH varied between 2 500 and 35 000 mg/kg and the contamination depth reached four meters at places. The treated volume was approximately 6 000 m³.
