Ventia has partnered with SUEZ to develop a soil processing facility at SUEZ's Taylors Road Landfill in Dandenong South, 45kms from the Melbourne CBD. The proposed soil processing facility will treat contaminated soil to minimise its environmental impact and where possible create the potential for re-use.

Ventia Utility Services General Manager, Nan-Maree Schoerie said: "As the most experienced remediation services company in the country, Ventia is pleased to partner with SUEZ to offer our clients best-practice, technology-led solutions which will reduce the volume of contaminated waste going to landfill.

"The new facility complements the world-class environmental and remediation solutions Ventia already delivers to our public and private sector clients, building on our position as the market leader in the management and treatment of contaminated soil.

SUEZ State General Manager, Kelvin Sargent said: "The facility will treat and reduce the environmental risks of contaminated soils and recover valuable materials that can be reused. By co-locating the facility at Taylors Road Landfill, we will provide a complete resource recovery and management solution for contaminated soils in Victoria.

We are excited to commence construction soon, and we can expect to start servicing the contaminated soils market in late 2017.

SUEZ is a leader in the waste and resource recovery industry and owns and operates Victoria's only landfill licenced to receive category B solid Prescribed Industrial Waste. 

Ventia has successfully completed over 140 remediation jobs over 20+ years including Australia's largest and most complex environmental projects.
