land management Applications

  • Waste management for military

    At sea or on land, compact removal of waste from military facilities is beyond a valuable and green activity, but a logistical imperative. Minimizing space, labour and equipment dedicated to waste management in both marine and land-based operations is of great value for military applications. In addition, security is a major concern for military ships. Minimizing the time the ships spend docked or in proximity to foreign ports significantly reduces the risks of enemy attack. Moreover, they generally carry more personnel than equivalent sized commercial vessels and spend longer periods at sea, intensifying waste management problems.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Water Management

    Fresh water is one of the planets most critical resources essential to all land based life It is also one of the planets most rapidly diminishing resources. Conservation and protection of existing supplies and the rehabilitation of degraded sources are one of the most urgent problems facing humanity today.

  • Waste management for dangerous wastes

    A wide variety of wastes are too hazardous to be disposed of by traditional means. Hospitals, clinics, laboratories, nursing homes, funeral homes, dental offices and veterinary clinics are just some examples of places that produce potentially dangerous bioactive waste, often referred to as biomedical waste. Proper disposal of biomedical waste is a complex process that must be carefully controlled to avoid serious public health risks. The waste must be placed in special bags, stored separately, transported in refrigerated trucks and carefully disposed of to eliminate potential exposure. In many cases, the waste must be autoclaved before it is land filled. This complex process results in exceedingly high costs for the disposal and treatment of biomedical waste.

  • X-ray fluorescence XRF analysis for environmental protection and waste management

    To meet the requirements of new regulations and to protect the environment effectively, industries need techniques that enable the analysis of elements at lowest concentration levels. Bruker X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is the most suitable analytical technique for handling different kinds of materials. Bruker’s XRF, ICP-MS, GC, TOF-MS, FT-IR, CBRNE products and applications help you to monitor contaminated land efficiently and quickly, to determine hazardous elements in the air and water, as well as to classify waste material and to specify products for recycling and disposal. Whether solids, sludge, filters, liquids or powders: there is a fast and simple sample preparation technique for every material type.

  • Mined Landfill

    Mining landfill is an innovative practice, which is a paradigm shift in waste management, where landfills can be considered storage of feedstock for waste to energy plants such as Gasplasma®. It works by: Extracting buried waste / Recovering valuable recyclates: glass, metals, hard plastics / Returning land for alternative uses / Eliminating greenhouse gas emissions caused by decomposing wastes

  • GIS software for agriculture industry

    Balancing the inputs and outputs on a farm is fundamental to its success and profitability. The ability of GIS to analyze and visualize agricultural environments and workflows has proven to be very beneficial to those involved in the farming industry. From mobile GIS in the field to the scientific analysis of production data at the farm manager`s office, GIS is playing an increasing role in agriculture production throughout the world by helping farmers increase production, reduce costs, and manage their land more efficiently.

  • Aerial Photography for Urban Planning

    GeoVantage high-resolution, digital aerial photography  gives urban planners a clear overview of large areas of land, making road planning, real estate management and land use calculations quick and easy. Ground crews can also save time while executing complicated land initiatives by using aerial photography to pinpoint their exact position. The versatility of GeoVantage aerial photography simplifies overall land management by allowing the integration of geo-registered images with current GIS systems.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

    All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.
