Frequently Asked Questions About Our Oil Spill Remediation Service

Oil spill remediation refers to the processes and actions taken to manage, contain, and clean up oil spills to minimise environmental damage and restore affected areas to their pre-spill condition. This involves a series of steps and techniques designed to address the spill effectively and ensure the safety and health of the environment, wildlife, and human populations.

Remediation and Decontamination Techniques we use include:

  • Bioremediation: Use of microorganisms to break down and degrade oil into less harmful substances.

  • Soil Washing: Cleaning contaminated soil to remove or reduce pollutants.

We offer rapid response services to address oil spills promptly, minimising environmental impact and ensuring swift cleanup. You can call us 24/7 and we aim to assess the contaminated area within 24 hours.

Here are the main methods we use for oil spill remediation in residential settings:

  • Containment and Control
    Containment Booms: These are barriers placed around the spill to prevent the oil from spreading further.
    Dikes and Berms: Temporary barriers built to contain spills on land and prevent the oil from reaching water sources or spreading to uncontaminated areas.
  • Absorption
    Sorbents: Materials like pads, booms, and loose sorbents that can absorb oil. They are often used in smaller spills to soak up the oil.
    Granular Absorbents: These are spread over the spill to absorb the oil, and then the saturated material is collected and properly disposed of.
  • Vacuuming
    Used to suction and remove large volumes of oil and contaminated material, particularly useful for substantial spills or when oil has pooled.
  • Excavation and Soil Removal:
    Contaminated soil is excavated and removed from the site. This method is typically used when oil has seeped into the ground.
    Replacement: After removal, the contaminated soil is replaced with clean soil.
  • Bioremediation
    Biological Agents: The use of microorganisms that naturally degrade oil into less harmful substances. This method is environmentally friendly and can be effective for long-term remediation.
    Nutrient Addition: Adding nutrients to contaminated soil or water to enhance the growth of oil-degrading microorganisms.
  • Chemical Treatments
    Dispersants: Chemicals that break down oil into smaller droplets, making it easier for natural degradation processes to occur. These are used cautiously in residential areas due to potential environmental and health risks.
    Solidifiers: Chemicals that turn liquid oil into a solid mass, which can then be more easily removed.
  • Physical Removal
    Manual Cleanup: Using tools and equipment to manually remove oil from surfaces such as driveways, patios, and other hard surfaces.
    Pressure Washing: High-pressure water jets can be used to remove oil from surfaces, though care must be taken to manage the runoff.
  • Chemical and Enzyme Cleaners
    Specialised Cleaners: Biodegradable cleaners and enzymes specifically designed to break down oil stains on surfaces without causing further environmental harm.
  • Disposal and Decontamination
    Ensuring that all contaminated materials, including soil, absorbents, and protective gear, are disposed of according to local environmental regulations.
    Decontamination: Cleaning and disinfecting equipment and tools used in the remediation process to prevent secondary contamination.

Yes, we adhere to all relevant regulations, including The Water (Northern Ireland) Order 1999 and Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015.
