Challenge

A California electrical utility performing regular maintenance performs regular hydroexcavation work. The resulting soil slurry must be tested before disposal. Transport and disposal of this liquid waste is very costly. On this occasion, there were 17,000 gallons to dispose of.

Solution

MetaFLO’s MF006 solidification reagent quickly and easily accelerates the solidification process eliminating the need for costly vacuum truck transportation and liquid waste treatment. MF006 is added at an extremely low dose, typically less than 1%.

Result

The solidified mud was tested and met all requirements for beneficial reuse as a clean fill. This material was picked up by a nearby business in need of clean fill resulting in the complete elimination of disposal cost offering an ideal solution for mud disposal California.
