In case of imminent endangerment of the environment, BALSA GmbH undertakes the projecting and realisation of measures for the protection / remediation of affected properties.
On this approx. 4 ha wide industrial area in Linz, scrap metal dealers and motor vehicle utilisation and service centres were situated from the early 1960s to the early 1990s. Part of this commercial area was used for the temporary storage of scrap metals, domestic waste, bulk rubbish and scrap polluted with oil. In addition, a gas station, a shredder and a scrap and baling press were run. Due to this, a substantial contamination of the soil and groundwater was detected on the mainly unfortified areal.
Complete realisation and carrying out of remediation measures:
Currently carrying out of groundwater monitoring measures. The current programme incorporates the period 2019 – 2024.
