The Virotec Soil Treatment Methodology
The Virotec designed soil treatment methodology is a single stage chemical addition. The Virotec Total Solution ensures that the solids have a custom-designed treatment solution to meet treatment targets efficiently and effectively.
Virotec’s Reagent are applied by thorough mixing with the soil to be treated. Depending on volumes, Virotec will develop a project specific treatment protocol that will include mixing equipment ranging from large pugmill to small bobcats. In addition, moisture content is extremely important, and is added to ensure the Virotec’s reagent particles are wetted for optimum contaminants binding. The result are solids that have extremely low leachability of any contaminants, therefore meeting the set treatment target for onsite re-use or acceptance to landfill.
Virotec will always custom design the correct blend based on the characteristics of the water to be treated.
The treatment projects are conducted under Virotec’s Site Based Management Plan (SBMP) and DES approved Regulated Waste mobile treatment licence ERA58. This plan and licence ensure that no harm is created to the environment during the treatment process, and that all environmental factors are considered

Reduce The Impact Of The Waste Levy And Stay Competitive
The Queensland government is introducing a $70 per tonne (and up to $150 per tonne for highly contaminated materials) waste levy to discourage both state and interstate companies from sending their rubbish to the state’s landfills.
The QLD waste levy, effective from March 2019, will bring Queensland into line with other states who charge waste levies for the same reason.
The QLD government hopes that the waste levy will encourage recycling and help QLD move towards a circular economy, where products would be recycled until their resources were exhausted. Proceeds from the QLD waste levy will go toward supporting local business and industry to increase their recycling efforts and also to environmental management and improvement.
Contaminated soils that fall under the category one or two classifications will incur a higher QLD waste levy of between $100 and $150 per tonne. The QLD government hopes that this increased rate will make innovative approaches including onsite treatment to contaminated soil disposal more economically viable to property owners and developers. Transferring the problem of contaminated soil and groundwater to a landfill does not provide a benefit in terms of reduction of contamination, and modern innovative treatments and remediation strategies may now be more affordable than transport and disposal of contaminated materials to landfill.
Virotec can substantially reduce your operating costs as:
- we have relationships with the major landfill operators so you get the benefit of our discount rates; and
our EPA licensed mobile treatment plant is licensed to treat on site so we can minimise waste volumes, to reduce expensive trucking trips and landfill costs.
- Our experience is that your disposal waste costs can be reduced by as much as 80% to 90%, with 30% to 40% being typical.
With our 100% track record, your remediation costs will reduce.
