  • Waste Disposal

    Introduction The final step in the waste management process is waste disposal, the permanent isolation of waste. Some wastes can be managed and disposed safely with existing facilities and proven methods. Other Department of Energy (DOE) wastes require more complex disposal facilities. DOE has conducted extensive research into alternative waste disposal methods and has concluded that deep ...

  • Testing of concrete to determine the effects on groundwater

    The need for a more sustainable construction industry, as well as increasing pressures on landfill space, have led to an increasing use of recycled and secondary materials as aggregates in concrete1,2. However, if users are to have full confidence in these materials, it is important that they are shown to have neither an adverse impact on the properties of concrete, nor on the environment, ...

  • Lower costs, fewer delays - a highway expansion project applies XRF technology to obtain cost-effective remediation.

    X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is a non-destructive, analytical method used primarily to detect the metal composition in soil/solids samples. Portable XRF instruments can provide rapid, accurate analysis of heavy metal levels in soil on new construction or redevelopment sites. In response to the growing need for field analysis of metals, many of these units have been adapted for use in the ...

  • Quantitative risk assessment for contaminated sites in Spain

    Environmental Quantitative Risk Assessment is one of the key factors in the Decision Making Process for contaminated sites. Numerous decisions have to be made before, during and after conducting a quantitative risk assessment.Risk assessment is based on the information gathered previously: Historical information (Phase I) Site characterization (Phase II) Toxicological ...

  • Vapor-Phase Biofilters Show Promise for Treating High VOC Emissions

    Evaluating the Feasibility of Natural AttenuationUsing natural attenuation to remediate organic compounds in groundwater has gained popularity. In some cases, this process can reduce contaminant levels to below risk-based corrective action criteria or regulatory standards without implementing additional remedial action alternatives. However, it is often difficult to prove that natural ...
