  • European water policies and human health — Combining reported environmental information

    Society depends on the satisfactory and sustainable management of water. Historically, the primary purpose of water treatment was to protect human health, through reducing disease being transmitted through water.

  • Tax Credit Tips For Biogas Projects

    With the end of 2016 in plain view, anaerobic digestion (AD) projects in the development phase should examine what has to happen by December 31 in order to tap into available federal tax credits. Under current law, Section 45 of the federal tax code makes AD projects eligible for a Production Tax Credit (PTC), which can be converted into an Investment Tax Credit (ITC), if the projects are used to ...

  • Land Treatment

    Introduction Land Treatment is a full-scale bioremediation technology in which contaminated soils, sediments, or sludges are turned over (i.e., tilled) and allowed to interact with the soil and climate at the site. The waste, soil, climate, and biological activity interact dynamically as a system to degrade, transform, and immobilize waste constitutes. Wastes are periodically tilled to aerate the ...

  • Financial risk assessment and management for contaminated land

    Dr. Simon Johnson, Managing Director of ENVIRON FRS, discusses how transferring, developing, or managing land, property, or assets harbors myriad opportunities for environmental liabilities that can ultimately result in significant financial ...

This is the final report for the study which began in January 2000. There are ...


  • Knowledge Gaps Limiting the Application and Acceptance of Risk-Based Management of Contaminated Land

     A position paper prepared by the Soil & Groundwater Technology Association (SAGTA), for the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) and the Environment Agency (EA) in November 1998. It sets out an industry view on the knowledge gaps and research needs for the risk based management of contaminated land for the workshop ‘Matching Contaminated Land Research to Need’ ...


  • Protocols for Evaluating the Effects of Land-use Patterns and Runoff Management on Urban Streams

    ABSTRACTThe design of urban runoff management facilities generally includes peak shaving for flood control, and best management practices (BMPs) for removing pollutants from the runoff. A number of scientists have concluded that the combination of these two control practices, which were developed independently of one another, is not sufficient to protect aquatic ecosystems. But these conclusions ...

  • Exploring sustainability in the context of land reclamation: an exercise for environmental management trainees

    Reductions in the fieldwork component of many environmental curricula mean that graduates have less practical experience. This paper attempts to compensate by developing a short, intensive, highly structured field exercise that aims to connect classroom theory to field realities in the context of the management of reclaimed coal-land. A self-paced field trail guides learners, first to examine ...

  • Farmer Innovation: Improving Africa’s food security through land and water management

    The nature of agriculture is changing. Farmers across the world struggle to produce more food while facing changing rainfall patterns, a warmer world, and increased competition over land and water. Ecosystem degradation, declining soil fertility, and water stress add to these land use pressures. Nowhere are these challenges more severe than in sub-Saharan Africa’s drylands. Farmers in ...

  • A conceptual framework for ecologically and socially sustainable land management and agricultural development in Africa

    Agricultural development in Sub-Saharan Africa witnessed an initial period of growth in the few years after independence (1960s) and went into decline after the 1980s. This spurred many governments to embark on structural adjustment programmes that are only just showing the first signs of improvement. This raises some searching questions concerning the process of formulating and implementing ...

  • Modelling public land-use decisions as a cooperative game

    The process with which to involve the public in national forest management planning and decision-making is analysed. Owing in part to various statutes that mandate the early and frequent involvement of the public in national forest system land management decisions, stakeholder conflict and often litigation surround these decisions. Many approaches have been used in an attempt to resolve these ...

  • Forests at work: A new model for local land protection

    To date, traditional public land acquisition programs have played a relatively small role in the conservation and sustainable management of southern U.S. forests. The South trails behind other U.S. regions in both the percent of the land base and the acres per capita conserved in parks, wildlife refuges, wilderness, and other protective categories. Working forests offer a new model for scaling ...
