ABESIM assists OVAM with demolition works at the ALVAT Buggenhout site
In Buggenhout, right next to the Schelde, the site of the former ALVAT factory, with a surface of 4.6 hectares, is located. Until 1995, barrels were cleaned and prepared for reuse here, resulting in soil pollution. At the end of 2019, OVAM acquired the site for 1 symbolic euro.
IFAT is the world's leading exhibition for water/sewage/waste management and raw materials, It takes place every two years. More than 3000 exhibitors from about 60 countries attend this year's industry meeting from May 14 to 18, 2018 in Munich.
Abesim recently acquired a device for dynamic plate tests.This test makes it possible to evaluate the level of densification of an embankment in progress.It can also be used to control the existing foundation layer, typically used in a roadway context.
The potential presence of Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in soil is cited in the OVAM’s newsletter of 26/11/2015. Recent technical reports show that PCBs are frequently more determined than generally assumed. They can originate from shallow excavation during road works.
