Brice has been at the forefront, and has successfully undertaken the management of training range soils impacted with ordinance, heavy metals and explosive residues. Since 1997, we have evaluated, designed and implemented soil processing systems at Department of Defense (DoD) ranges at over 30 locations nationwide. We have the in-house crucial expertise and experience required to perform high-hazard munitions remediation safely and efficiently. Our experts are recognized professionals within the environmental sector as leaders in munitions response, and maintain a keen understanding of public and private client concerns.

Hybrid Washing Technology
Brice is a pioneer of developing new approaches to treating contaminated and impacted soils at DoD facilities; one of these is “hybrid” soil washing technology. A typical soil washing process is entirely water-based and requires large water processing components and water treatment systems to remove dissolved metals, greater labor to support, and has a reduced production rate that all translates to higher costs. By incorporating innovative dry processing technology, the complete soil mass no longer requires water-based processing, and water-based requirements are reduced to particulate metal recovery and refinement systems, resulting in a more effective and cost efficient result.
When required, Brice also immobilizes heavy metals in soils as part of the hybrid system. We have extensive experience immobilizing heavy metals in soils using commercially available reagents such as apatite (sold by PIMS NW), ECOBOND® (sold by MT2), and TRAPPS™ (sold by Slater (UK) Limited).
Brice was the first firm to design and implement an advanced hybrid approach to soil washing to remove small arms rounds from over 20,000 tons of rifle and pistol range soils at Former Fort Ruger, Hawaii. The hybrid soil washing approach resulted in a compact, mobile, and high production process that saved the government more than $700,000 as opposed to traditional soil washing.
The Pentagon announced nine winners of the fiscal 2007 Secretary of the Army Environmental Award. Fort Ruger won the award for Environmental Restoration, Installation, for developing their firing ranges into a state park by excavating and cleaning contaminated soil and hydroseeding the land with native grass species.
In 2008, Brice used advanced hybrid soil washing technology to 1) add amendments to immobilize heavy metals, 2) remove artillery and ferrous debris using magnetic separation and 3) remove small arms rounds from 20,000 tons of former range soils located at Camp Withycomb, Oregon. Over 270 tons of bullets and bullet fragments were recovered for recycling.
The Pentagon announced nine winners of the fiscal 2007 Secretary of the Army Environmental Award. James G. Arnold, an environmental restoration manager at the Oregon Army National Guard won the Environmental Restoration, Individual Category, after advancing a plan to use new soil washing technology for range soil remediation (Camp Withycombe).
