Increasing lab efficiency with rapid automated extraction of soils

As analytical instrumentation has improved over the years the bottleneck of sample preparation has remained. As we become more aware of different pollutants (SVOC’s, PCB’s, PFAS), and the effect they have on human health and the environment, it is vital to develop effective extraction techniques, that provide excellent recoveries whilst meeting the high throughput demands of a modern busy laboratory.

Technical Applications for in situ Bioremediation of Recalcitrant Compounds

Recalcitrant compounds like PCE and TCE form a serious risk for drinking water wells. One way of dealing with these contaminants is a bioremediation process called Enhanced Reductive Dechlorination (ERD) using emulsified vegetable oils (EVO). This talk will focus on how to design EVO remediation projects in respect of EVO selection and injection and what to look out for when doing a ERD project using EVO.

Driven Piling in Contaminated Land

We discuss how driven piling is an ideal foundation type for contaminated land. With the Government committed to almost unparalleled infrastructure spending, recognising the benefits it brings to economic growth and stability, UK construction must start embracing the many benefits of driven piling and challenge misconceptions about the technique. The session will provide real-world example installations, taking the listener through all aspects of driven piling, explaining the many environmental benefits and applications, as well as their specification and installation across the widest variety of projects.
