Research Infrastructure

Environmental Evaluation and Remediation

Description The contamination of land and groundwater in post-industrial regions, as a result of anthropogenic activities has given rise to numerous impacts resulting in unfavourable end points. In many cases, pollution has affected both land and water sources utilised by local populations. Regulatory agencies, potential developers and those responsible for land remediation are rarely able to consider whether the levels of metals soil contamination comprise an actual hazard. There is a need to establish priorities for remedial action which can take into account all of the factors involved. Decision makers responsible for environmental and health policies therefore need access to a range of information about the extent of dereliction, the levels of pollution - current and projected - to which they are subjected, sources of funding for restoration, legislation and planning requirements. Decision makers need to be aware of the types of remediation available, with an assessment of their relative merits and costs. This requires tight collaboration between chemists, physicists and engineers whithin studies of the complex problems regarding environmental evaluation and remediation. The role of ETER Research Infrastructure is to support and build the development both of new and modern analytical methods for environmental evaluation and innovative and highly adaptable solutions for soil remediation with a wider applicability.
