The growth of urban populations, the increase in industrial goods consumption, and hence the diversification of the solid waste stream, impose the characterization of solid waste, the optimization of waste collection, the rationalization of recycling sites, and the search for more efficient collection and disposal techniques concerning regulations and the environment.
This is one of our other major functions.
Waste disposal conditions require the use of storage facilities for both non-hazardous and hazardous waste, in addition to energy or raw material recovery processes.
After characterizing the waste deposit, our experts select the sites which are suitable for waste storage, considering many parameters, including geotechnical and hydrogeological investigations. They make the permit applications, assessing environmental impacts and health risks.
Old landfill sites must be brought into compliance with environmental regulations in order to protect the environment and water resources. Our teams can deliver remediation studies to ensure the regulatory compliance of operating sites.
Beyond construction or remediation works project management, our engineers can carry out re-vegetation and landscape integration studies.
