Boston Environmental uses the patented FESI-BOND™ Technologies process to treat soils with leachable levels of heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, chromium, mercury and arsenic. This patented process completes a molecular-level conversion of these soluble metals to insoluble non-hazardous materials. The FESI-BOND™ process was designed to be ecologically safe, thermodynamically stable, non-toxic, non-hazardous and compatible with production equipment and the environment. All systems used are OSHA compliant, safe, simple, user friendly, and have received numerous state and federal approvals.
The process methods used include wet, dry or slurry applications to meet the needs of
the project. It can be applied in tank, in-situ or ex-situ. Applications of the FESI-BOND™ technology typically result in a weight increase of about 1 percent, resulting in lower disposal costs when compared to other treatment methods.
Depending on the waste characteristics, target lead metals such as chloropyromorphites are formed instantaneously during treatment, resulting in extremely insoluble, nontoxic and stable crystal appetite.
