SANIPOR® Environmental Aspects

SANIPOR® works with two environmental friendly liquid silicate grouts, made and supplied 

  • in the UK by Brenntag UK
 


These inorganic injections form a durable silicate conglomerate underground, similar to sandstone, clay or glass.            

None of the SANIPOR® components are toxic, they are hazard-free to the surrounding soil and ground water. The complete reaction of the two components is practically independent from their mixing ratios or dilution with water.

Under special - industrial - conditions

Industrial areas have often contaminated soils and tend to pollute ground water due to leaking water collection systems.

To prevent further pollution and partially remediate the soil in the surroundings of leakages SANIPOR® can be of great help.

It can -in situ- encapsulate contaminations. Toxic materials around leaks will be vitrified, and cannot be dissolved and washed away by ground water any longer.

 

The inorganic, sandstone like chemical character of the SANIPOR® grout is inert against oil, oil derivatives and organic solvents.
