Vadose Zone Monitoring Systems as a Key to Groundwater Protection

Minimization of subsurface pollution, as well as optimization of remediation strategies, is much dependent on the capability to obtain real-time information on the chemical and hydrological properties of the subsurface. Sensoil''s Vadose Zone Monitoring System (VMS) enables real-time measurement of water flow and contaminant transport across the unsaturated zone, from land surface to groundwater. This promotes effective protection of groundwater from pollution, and enhances remediation of contaminated sites.


12.30 - 13.00

Jamie Jeffs

Industry 4.0 – Data Analytics for Environmental and Process Control

In this seminar, Jamie Jeffs, Service and UK Sales Manager at ENVEA will explore the emergence of Industry 4.0 Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with specific focus on environmental and process control in combustion and manufacturing industries. The seminar will demonstrate the benefits of ENVEA’s latest software development in managing particulate emissions whilst using advanced cloud based analytics to achieve cost and process efficiency for operators.


13.15 - 13.45

Brad Luff

Fail to Plan, Plan To Fail

The seminar will focus on the failure to consider all foreseeable risks during the planning/tendering stage of refurbishment and demolition projects so that planning how to deal with those risks fails. This leads to dealing with the situation, when it arises in a reactive, not proactive way. The seminar will also include how persons carrying out the planning process are often untrained in terms of those risks, especially asbestos.


14.00 - 14.30

For People | For Planet | For Life - eradicating PM2.5 from industrial workplaces

Industrial emissions are a key contributing factor in climate change and occupational diseases, but there are a number of control measures businesses can take to ensure the air in their workplaces is clean and safe to breathe. This seminar explores some of the filtration technologies that can be used to capture airborne particulate at source – protecting people, reducing harm to the planet and ensuring a better quality of life for communities worldwide.


14.45 - 15.15

Driving operational efficiency through digitalisation

The move to online digital services is having a significant impact on operational efficiency via techniques such as the use of GIS data to manage ongoing operations. This presentation will look at ways in which daily operations can be made more efficient by leveraging digital tools and methods to improve common operational tasks such as site induction and risk assessment approval, easing the workload for site managers.
