Recycled soil


North London contractor Keanes Enviromental has developed a system for recycling excavated soil into a product suitable for backfilling trenches.

The Trenchmod system uses Keane's proprietary computer-controlled mixer to blend a range of additives into the soil, which creates a granular material. Trenchmod has recently won an award in the independent Green Apple Environment Awards.
