Underground storage
170 metres below ground, we provide an innovative and secure underground storage solution for up to 100,000 tonnes of hazardous waste every year.

The worked out areas of a rock salt mine in Cheshire provide a dry, secure, gas-free storage environment for the permanent disposal of a range of solid and granular hazardous wastes.
The nature of the facility and the unique environment provides the best overall environmental option for a number of specific hazardous waste streams.

To ensure the integrity of the facility strict, site specific testing criteria are used in the pre-acceptance process, including mine condition testing. This simulates how the waste will behave in typical mine conditions and includes biodegradability testing and gas evolution tests.
