Heavy Metal Bond (HMB)


Up to 19% of agricultural land in China is impacted with heavy metals from past industrial activity and irrigation with contaminated water. This has created a situation where China is potentially 13 million hectares below the minimum available productive land area required for food security. A safe, inexpensive, reliable and permanent solution is essential and WMT has it in Heavy Metal Bond.

HMB is a proven silicate encapsulation methodology which has been evaluated by the US EPA and meets all US, Canadian CCME, EU and China standards for residential and agricultural stabilization criteria under US EPA Method 1311 for Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP).

HMB is cost effective, available in custom quantities and WMT can provide pre-project testing and evaluations, application support and post-application analytical in partnership with the Nanjing Institute of Environmental Sciences.
