Manufactured Gas Plants

Providing cost-effective remediation products

Former manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites offer unique challenges. A by-product of coal gasification wasMGP-Application-Pagecoal tar. Even decades after ceasing operations, coal tar can still remain in on-site soils and sediment in adjacent waterways. CETCO offers cost-effective and innovative products that have successfully helped stabilize impacted soils and cap contaminated sediments. Our remediation products can help enable redevelopment of these MGP sites, which in many cases are choice waterfront properties.

    REACTIVE CORE MAT (RCM) is a patented permeable composite mat consisting of reactive material(s) encapsulated in a non-woven core matrix bound between two geotextiles. The upper geotextile is a needle-punched, non-woven fabric that is heat-laminated to a matrix of nonwoven fibers needle-punched into a woven geotextile. Through its innovative processing, RCM can combine two active materials, if required.
