Our experience

Some of the most recent projects are:

Technical consultancy and product development, for example:

  • Review of bioremediation projects for National Grid
  • Sustainability appraisal of charcoal based land remediation for C-CURE
  • Appraisal of remediation and waste management  technologies and, process development and project development (various clients),
  • Compost / soil improver standards and audit development (various clients);
  • Composting trials work and compost formulation advice (e.g. for the Eden Project);
  • Composting guidance (e.g. the Compost Bibliography Project -Phase 1 for Sita Environmental Trust, and a book on home composting)
  • Review of possible diffuse pollution issues for compost use (for WRAP) 

Feasibility studies, for example:

  • The Markham Willows project (linkage of biomass, remediation / risk management, compost re-use and land regeneration with job creation and economic and social regeneration) with exSite Research Limited, Groundwork UK and others,
  • Feasibility study for the UK CL:AIRE network (www.claire.co.uk).  CLAIRE is the the UK demonstration network for contaminated sites, established in 1999.

Research and development, for example:

  • Taking Nanotechnological Remediation Processes from Lab Scale to End User Applications for the Restoration of a Clean Environment. (www.nanrorem.eu)
  • Holistic Management of Brownfield REgeneration (HOMBRE)
  • The use of biomass and compost for marginal land restoration (Environment Agency and Defra, EU SNOWMAN project) www.rejuvenate.eugris.info
  • Sustainability appraisal and decision support for contaminated land management (various projects funded by DETR and the Environment Agency, and the EC e.g. www.clarinet.at and special meeting on decision support for NATO/CCMS with the US EPA and the Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA, for the Environment Agency).
  • Development of sustainable remediation indicator concepts for SURF-UK (supported by CL:AIRE) and for NICOLE
  • Integrated approaches to river basin management (part of the €20 million EC Integrated Project Aquaterra),

Networking and information collation, management  and dissemination including web and database systems, for example:

  • Ready Reference for Contaminated Land Managers and a university textbook on contaminated land remediation for Wiley and Sons
  • EUGRIS the EC funded European portal for contaminated land and water information,
  • Searchable case study archive and other information activities for EURODEMO an EC funded project co-ordinating land and water restoration demonstration projects in the EC,
  • NICOLE web site, reports and newsletter (Network for Contaminated Land in Europe)
  • Collation of remediation project case studies for the Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA)
  • Review of non-military environmental study networks for the NATO Committee for Challenges to Modern Society (CCMS)
  • compost Bibliography web site (Phase 1)
