Cornwall Soil Treatment Facility and the LEADER Programme

Our Cornwall soil hub is the only hazardous soil treatment facility in Cornwall offering sustainable and landfill tax free soil treatment since 2021. Based at Wheal Jane Science Park, the soil hub allows soils, otherwise destined for long journeys outside the county for disposal, to be treated and reused for the restoration of the Wheal Jane Clemows Valley Tailings dam, offering a sustainable alternative to a traditional landfill disposal.

The LEADER Programme grant enabled us to finance the construction of the soil treatment area and the essential plant machinery needed for the treatment of contaminated soils.
