Jack Shore from Regenesis, explores the complexities of a case study at an industrial site in Scotland and the application of a combined biostimulation and bioaugmentation treatment to remove DNAPL
Listen again to our recent Chartership webinar where we explain the difference between the two designations; Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and Chartered Scientist (CSci), provide details on the routes we offer and aim to help you decide which Chartership is right for you.
The UK Government has now announced plans for the new Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) regulations which will take effect in 2019. This new reporting framework will replace the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC EES) and extend the scope of the existing Mandatory Carbon Reporting (MCR) regulations for listed companies to all large organisations.
Until recently, identifying and analysing for TPH, tars etc. has relied on laboratory GCs. However, measuring fluorescence across the UV and visible range can, in three minutes, identify and analyse petroleum or coal tar derived hydrocarbon contamination of liquids and solids immediately on site or in a laboratory. This method provides quantitative values for TPH, DRO, GRO as well as total BTEX, total PAHs and Benzo(a)pyrene in soil, groundwater and waste streams.
This webinar series explores the culture and attitudes around entrepreneurship in the environmental science sector. Over the last few months, we have heard from a range of successful entrepreneurs, who have pioneered innovated and grown businesses in the sector. Our speakers have shared their experiences and discussed key challenges and opportunities they faced when establishing their businesses.
Agricultural areas have expanded dramatically in the tropics, providing food for the world's population, but posing a severe threat to natural habitats and tropical biodiversity. A crop which has attracted particularly negative press and been associated with high levels of deforestation is oil palm.
In this webinar, Susan Jay Circular Economy Technical Specialist at Wrap, explores the role of plastic in current society and how existing recycling and reprocessing infrastructure can be improved and enhanced to capture and recycle more plastic waste, avoiding escape into the environment. Susan considered how we can encourage society to reconsider the widespread use of plastic and to recognise plastic as a resource that must be dealt with responsibly.
Landing on Mars is one of the most challenging goals in planetary science. Understanding the Martian environment is crucial to how lander and rover missions are designed.
Model Procedures provide a framework for making decisions about land contamination risks and are a useful resource which offer a lot of detail leading up to, and after, remediation. The remediation stage is often a significant and complicated financial commitment for any project, however the design and delivery of a project gets minimal attention in CLR11. There is a wealth of guidance on specific remediation techniques, some of which is outdated.
In recent years there has been a surge in recognition of the positive impact behavioural science can have to help reduce the demand for a range of endangered species products; including rhino horn, tiger bone, elephant ivory, pangolin scales and more. Gayle Burgess, Programme Officer at TRAFFIC International, introduces some of the theoretical foundation underpinning this innovative work, as well as the activities being conducted in various parts of Asia and the impact so far, including success factors, lessons learned and next steps.
