C.E.R.E.S. Magnesium Oxide

Magnesium Oxide

Metals Treatment Solution – Chemistry for sustained heavy metals sequestration and stabilization.

C.E.R.E.S. offers the highest quality and best performing Magnesium Oxide for environmental application! Magnesium Oxide has been used for soil and groundwater remediation for decades by blending into heavy metals contaminated soil or waste material in order to increase the pH into the 8–10 range where many heavy metals are at their lowest solubilities. Sequestration occurs by creating metal-hydroxide complexes that precipitate out of aqueous solution.

Soil Remediation Applications:

Sequestration of heavy metal impacted soil and groundwater is a remedial technology that has been employed for many years around the world by highly specialized remediation engineers who understand the chemistry well and its application.

Sequestration is a process where chemical reagents (i.e. MTS TM) are applied or injected in contact with contaminated soil or substrate to form a stable and insoluble state resulting in reduced leachability of the heavy metals.

Sequestration chemically binds metal ions in the free liquids and immobilizes them within the soil / substrate thereby reducing their solubility through a chemical reaction. The physical characteristics of the sequestrated or “stabilized” contaminated material is not changed by this process with respect to geotechnical properties for redevelopment
