Dauson Environmental Group Announces Completion of Wash Plant Extension at Neal Soil Suppliers Ltd.


25th May 2024


This month, Dauson Environmental Group are pleased to announce the completion of the wash plant extension at Neal Soil Suppliers Ltd. This significant expansion which has taken over 18 months to complete and backed by an investment of over £6 million, underscores our commitment to environmental sustainability and operational excellence, ensuring long-term reliability in processing both hazardous and non-hazardous soils.


The wash plant, which is over 15 years old, has been significantly upgraded to incorporate the latest green technologies. These improvements make our processes far more efficient and environmentally friendly, while also expanding our production capacity. The new extension allows us to transform these materials into high-quality, reusable resources, contributing to a circular economy. Key upgrades include enhanced screening capabilities and advanced cyclone extraction of sands, which significantly improve the efficiency and quality of our soil processing. This investment ensures maximum recovery of materials handled through the site, optimising resource utilisation and minimising waste.


Additionally, the expansion includes an upgraded filter cake press process, which now utilises repurposed machinery from the redundant Tower Colliery mine in Aberdare. We are delighted to see this equipment, once used within the Welsh coal industry, being given new life in a next-generation environmental initiative.


The site also enjoyed an upgrade and expansion to its bunded processing and storage site with the laying of almost 10,000 cubic meters of concrete.


David Neal, CEO of Neal Soil Suppliers Ltd, commented on the completion:

“We are thrilled to see the wash plant extension come to fruition. This investment not only enhances our operational capabilities but also reflects our commitment to sustainable practices. By incorporating new technologies, we can ensure that our processes are efficient and more environmentally friendly, while sustaining our ability to provide high-quality recycled materials for our customers”.

This project represents a major milestone for Neal Soil Suppliers Ltd and Dauson Environmental Group, reinforcing our dedication to innovative and sustainable practices within the industry.
