VALGO’s expertise in asbestos and lead removal and soil remediation operations is enhanced by each new project carried out by its engineers and operators, throughout France and the world.

Each case of pollution (asbestos or other pollutants) is unique because of the nature of the pollutant, the depth at which it is located, the nature of the soil, or the presence – or not – of residencial or activity areas near the site. To meet these multiple challenges, VALGO puts its depollution experience and skills at the service of its clients.

For this purpose, VALGO collects all the data from its sites, which we add to our database that includes more than 1,000 soil remediation sites,  in order to respond more accurately to soil pollution problems or asbestos contaminated constructions.

Our teams work on depollution sites as well as asbestos and removal sites in a wide variety of environments: service stations, industrial and urban wastelands, factories in operation or in cessation of activity, public buildings (schools, university hospitals, universities) and historic buildings.
