The Greenbank Gas Works Site occupied approximately 10 ha of land to the east of Blackburn, England and was contaminated with coal tar, phenols, heavy metals and spent oxide containing complex cyanides which prevented redevelopment for intended industrial use. A scheme was devised by BioTreatment Limited of Cardiff to treat the material on site using a combination of conventional engineering and microbiological techniques to predetermined target levels in accordance with ICRCL (Interdepartmental Committee for the Reclamation of Contaminated Land) 59/83 a guidance document prepared by the U.K. Department of the Environment (DoE).
