groundwater risk Applications

  • Continuous Monitoring of Groundwater

    The Sorbisense method allows for measuring the average concentration of substances in groundwater over a period of up to 1 month with only one sample.

    The system provides methods for measurements in both unsaturated and saturated zone and provides access to dynamic boundaries of contaminants and more realistic risk assessments. For example, through direct measurements of seepage from contaminants and by continuous measurement of emissions from cropland.

  • Erosion & sediment control solutions for wetlands

    The largest threat to wetlands is the risk of being flooded with sediment as a result of a poorly managed construction site. Most construction projects require erosion control to prevent damage to the wetlands.

  • Monitoring of VOCs in Porewater

    Monitoring VOCs in porewater in the unsaturated zone is now possible.

    Sorbisense regularly offers new options for using the patented Sorbicell, which is used to monitor surface water, wastewater and groundwater.

    The latest is almost as “ground-breaking” as the SorbiCell itself. Until now it has been difficult, if not impossible, to directly monitor for volatile substances in pore water in the unsaturated zone. But the environmental consultancy firm Ejlskov A/S in Aarhus combined the use of Sorbisense sampling equipment with the proven technology of soil water samplers. With this combination, a practical new method is made available, which allows for monitoring the presence of porewater-dissolved VOCs above the groundwater table. This provides a significantly improved basis to define and determine the leaching risk to the groundwater, and thus allows for better and more cost-efficient decisions to prevent the pollution in reaching the groundwater.

    A simple construction with multiple options

    The application uses SorbiCell VOC combined with suction cells, soil water samplers. When installed correctly, and applied with the correct procedures, the suctions cells extract capillary bound water from the soil matrix. The system demands no other resource than a container that is put under vacuum. The vacuum in the container then ensures a flow through of the Sorbicell over a period of time, fx. 2-3 weeks. The method is highly suitable for monitoring a site over longer periods of time.

    Geotextiles solutions for landfills areas

    Historically, landfills have been the most common method of organized waste disposal and remain so in many places around the world. Landfills  are essential applications to ensure long service life and prevent soil pollution. In industrial basins, TenCate protection geotextiles guarantee the protection of the geomembrane against all risks of mechanical damages. A cost effective and environmental friendly solution to sort, treat and recycle waste.

    Industrial wastewater solutions for contaminated landfill leachate

    Reliable treatment. Optimised for heavily contaminated landfill leachate. Whether it be household rubbish, construction rubble, contaminated soils, port sludge or waste incineration ash, final storage of these heavily contaminated materials poses a potential groundwater pollution risk from heavy metals, nitrogen bonds or organic substances. Landfill leachate resulting from precipitation on landfill sites.
