Our Solutions

Restoring balance to the environment in a manner that was previously impossible.

Waste streams like contaminated soil, dredge and landfill leachate present a significant and expensive problem, with no clear answer before now. 

GRT offers the only effective end-to-end solution for complex contamination of soil and water available today. Through our unique process and tech stack we offer competitive value to our customers, salvage commodities for reuse, while disposing of contaminants in an environmentally responsible way.

Soil Challenges

Increasing urbanization and land redevelopment, as well as an ever improving understanding of the impacts we’ve made on our soils are driving the need for solutions. Meanwhile, contaminated land poses real problems for developers, government entities and regulators.

GRT has developed both on and off site disposal resulting in an industry leading recyclable reuse opportunity from a wide range of contaminated soils and water.

Contaminants

Organic contaminants like Hydrocarbons, BTEX volatile compounds, VOC

Inorganic contaminants like heavy metals, PFAS

Physical contaminants like sediments organics, trash

We're able to process contaminants at all levels, including RL +/1, CL +/1, to IL +/1

Dredge

Solutions Overview

Dredge Challenges

Remediation of dredge from contaminated foreshore development, harbours and rivers presents significant challenges to stakeholders and the environment. Transporting liquid unstable dredge can spill, creating disastrous results. 

Because of our innovations, we can save our clients money while also protecting the natural environment and decreasing liability risks. 

Contaminants

Organic contaminants like Hydrocarbons, BTEX volatile compounds, VOC

Inorganic contaminants like heavy metals, PFAS (under development)

Physical contaminants like sediments, organics, trash, UXO (unexploded ordinance), shells

Discovered archeology can be salvaged carefully

Slurry & Sludge

Solutions Overview

Slurry & Sludge Challenges

Slurries and sludges present some of the most complex problems to solve in the waste industry today.


With the easy option to landfill often restricted due to the impact high moisture content has on landfill operations, handlers of waste are often faced with limited options like purchasing expensive solidifying additives. 


However, GRT provides patented wet receiving stations specifically designed for accepting complex, viscous contaminated liquid slurries, and bringing them through the remediation process to allow their constituent parts to be safely reused.

Contaminants

Organic contaminants like Hydrocarbons, BTEX volatile compounds, VOC

Inorganic contaminants like heavy metals (from vehicles emissions, brake discs, catalytic convertors, or traditional sources like old industrial sites)

Physical contaminants (such as garbage/litter)

Water

Solutions Overview

Water Challenges for Landfills

A major challenge in landfill treatment is the extremely high
concentration of ammonia and increasingly more stringent
Regulations around contaminants of concern. Various treatment methods are used for landfill treatment but either have high costs, cannot meet the discharge limits, or produce dangerous by-products.


GRT uses active water treatment to manage landfill leachate. Our
zero-liquid discharge system uses filtration and advanced oxidation
to remove the constituents cost-effectively, producing clean water,
nitrogen gas, and a solid cake that can be returned to the
landfill.

Contaminants

Organic contaminants like Hydrocarbons, BTEX, volatile compounds (VOC,  E.g. from fuel spills)

Inorganic contaminants like heavy metals, PFAS (at risk of entering the water table) — under development

TSS and turbidity; generic construction waters

GRT Fixed Plants

Bring your materials to us.

Our fixed processing plants offer faster, more environmentally responsible and cost-effective options than hauling to a landfill. We assume chain of custody and recycle discarded materials responsibly using QAQC-compliant processes. Useful secondary aggregates are retained, resulting in reduced demand for mining virgin aggregates.

Fixed plants for leachate treatment solutions: We work with landfill operators under long-term agreements. Our plants have a number of modular and scalable components that enable us to service landfills over the lifetime of the facility, easily handling the significant variable elements of leachate that occur over time.

GRT Mobile Plants

We’ll set up a plant on your location (land or barge).

Mobile plants provide opportunities to process feedstocks on your location. This saves OPEX by reducing the need to transport contaminated materials away from the site. Dewatering saves on disposal costs, which can be significant. Recovered materials can be reused or sold. Depending on location, there are opportunities for facilitating archeological studies and UXO management.
