Soil Remediation

Our experts proved their capabilities in remediating with different contaminated soil (i.e. acid sulfate soil and radioactive waste site):

 

  • We have the capability to investigate agricultural practices leading to water quality issues and then identify cost-effective land and drainage management solutions to mitigate pollution of the environment. 

Figure Description:

Some acidity dissolves metals, like aluminium and iron, in the soil and when it rains the acidity and metals are washed into drains and eventually adjacent rivers, often resulting in catastrophic environmental effects 

 

  • We have the capacityto examine hydraulic and biogeochemical drivers behind radioactive waste migration and trial novel, fieldbased remediation technologies based on a comprehensive understanding of the underpinning science.

Figure Description:

This is a field-scale replication of legacy waste trenches at Little Forest Site, Sydney Australia. Photo shows one of four trenches excavated to replicate hydraulic and biogeochemical processes, and also to test remediation technologies (e.g. in-situ grouting using colloidal silica).
