Land and Facility Remediation: Minimising the Burden of Contamination shouldn’t cost the Earth
Remediation of contaminated land and facilities requires a careful and systematic approach, which if correctly applied will reduce the quantity and associated cost of waste, as well as minimising risks to humans and the wider environment. This presentation explores some of the techniques and technologies used within the industry to characterise and manage contaminated material from land and buildings safely and effectively. The presentation includes examples from various remediation projects undertaken by Nuvia; both within the nuclear industry and other sectors.
