Environmental Treatment Services

Turn-key treatment services for environmental remediation across a range of industry sectors.

McMahon Services provides turn-key treatment services for the environmental remediation market. Our team is comprised of PhD level scientists and senior engineers with a wealth of experience and practical hands on ability within the contaminated land and hazardous waste fields. Our in-house laboratory and engineering workshops enable us to continually deliver practical and cost effective turn-key solutions for our clients.

Our Capability

  • Laboratory trials for scalable treatment applications
  • Analytical chemistry
  • Process engineering
  • Specialist plant and equipment development

Treatment of contaminated soil, water, industrial waste, as well as gas and vapour is often not straight forward and requires a tailored approach. McMahon Services offer a streamlined solution between the technical expertise and the ability to execute the treatment outcome on site.

Our Capability

McMahon Services has the three most important aspects to enable turn-key treatment services to be provided:

  • In-house laboratory
  • Specialised team
  • Engineering workshops and specialised plant

In-House Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory allows us to undertake a range of treatment trials on water, sludge and solid materials utilising a range of treatment methods.

These include the following:

  • Bioremediation
  • Chemical fixation
  • Neutralisation (PASS/ASS)
  • Chemical oxidation

Trials are undertaken to meet technical, regulatory and financial objectives and directly link to full-scale treatment.
