For more than 10 years, Englobe has been actively involved in the remediation of degraded sites such as mine tailings, quarries and pits, landfills, roadsides and brownfield areas. Although mine tailings are not considered environmentally harmful, they negatively impact the landscape and biodiversity.
Englobe applies innovative solutions that make use of recycled materials (slightly contaminated or decontaminated soil and fertilizing residual materials (FRM) to create a substrate that supports plant growth. The combination of soil and FRMs provides a favourable medium in which vegetation can take root, and supplies essential nutrients for the establishment of vegetation cover. Not only is a degraded site reclaimed, the use of recycled materials is important from an environmental, economic and social perspective.
Mindful of adverse environmental impacts, Englobe has integrated solutions that limit nuisances for local populations, supporting an upstream community approach that maximizes social licence for its projects. We get certificates of authorization for all of our projects from the Department of Sustainable Development, the Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change (MDDELCC).
