Contaminated Land / Soil
On the European level, directives concerning the management of contaminated land is being developed. Someone buying a land (or a factory) where in the past industrial activities have taken place (or where one is not sure what has been done on the site), risks to have to bear the costs of decontamination (or restricted use of his property) in the future.  An eco-audit can measure and limit the level of risk.

Existing companies
All to often general (or risk) managers are not aware of the liabilities that are created in the soil during their actual exploitation, which leads to surprises for instance in a situation where one day the company is to be taken over.  Here also, an eco-audit measures and limits the risks, and helps to take the necessary corrective actions.

Recycling of waste and contaminated land
Here too, European directives make that this question is arising more and more.People of companies concerned : building promoters & contractors, industrial companies, transport companies, public authorities, …
 
Brownfields
In any region with historical industrial activities exist several sites where the contamination is such that decontamination costs appear to be (much) higher than the economical value of the site.  It so might be lost for the economy for many years, and, in many cases, may continue to contaminate the soil and the groundwater.  Nevertheless, in quite some cases a creative solution (often combining administrative, legal and technical elements with politics) is to be found.

Land digging and landfills
On every construction site, one is confronted with soil that has to move form X to Y, be it within the site itself, or to another site.  In the situation where one is confronted with (even slightly) contaminated land or waste, heavy (financial) consequences may occur.  It is wise to integrate this item in the quality and risk management of the project.
