    Air pollution control for the remediation industry

    The remediation division of Anguil Environmental Systems (formerly known as Global Technologies) is focused on treating emissions and water contaminants extracted from below the earths` surface.  Formed shortly after the 1990 Clean Air Act targeted emissions associated with the extraction of polluted compounds from contaminated sites, Global subsurface remediation equipment has been successfully applied on contaminated sites in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

    Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

    Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large storage casks, where it can be held for thousands of years. A challenge for the nuclear industry is the cost associated with conditioning, packaging and storage of these heterogeneous wastes. Therefore, a solution that can decrease the volume of nuclear waste, and reduce the amount of storage required, is considered a commercially advantageous option.

    Environmental protection solutions for the mining industry

    GEOWEB geocells offer a better “solution set” to soil stability challenges for accessing sites over soft ground, controlling and containing stormwater, protecting geomembranes for basins, tailings, and heap leach pads, and reclaiming slopes at the time of closure. Through 3D confinement and strengthening of infill, less material—even on-site waste rock—may be used. GEOWEB solutions offer increased speed of operation, lower maintenance, safer installation, and a lower total cost of ownership.

    Dam reinforcement solutions for the spillway & slope protection

    Dam facing slopes, spillways and stormwater conveyance channels can be built economically with the GEOWEB system, and designed to meet specific site requirements with either a vegetated, aggregate armored, or a concrete solution.  With the GEOWEB system, vegetated earthen dams can replace concrete structures, smaller rock infill can replace larger, expensive rip rap and concrete depth can be reduced up to 50% for hard-armor protection.

    Ultraviolet disinfection systems for the flowback water treatment - shale gas

    Natural oil and gas extracted from shale rock formations has become one of the fastest-growing oil and gas sectors worldwide.  Using a process known as hydraulic fracturing or `fracking` , the process requires large volumes of clean, sterile water to be injected into the shale formation to release the gas trapped between the rock.

  • GPR Applications

    Our GPR products aid in determining mining safety, establishing bedrock depth, mapping sand and gravel deposits, ascertain rock quality, in addition to mineral exploration. Mining professionals use ground penetrating radar to accurately locate underground structures before drilling, blasting or carrying face operations. Ground penetrating radar is instrumental in helping to identify overhead separations in order to prevent ceiling collapses. In deep mine applications, ground penetrating radar is invaluable for identifying geologic features that may be potential areas for rock bursts, such as fractures, shear zones and faults. GPR is being used as well for mineral exploration in igneous and metamorphic rocks, such as granitic pegmatite, to locate hydrothermal features including cavities and vugs.

  • GPR

    GPR and EM play an integral part by providing a non-intrusive means of examining the subsurface for environmental hazards such as soil contamination, underground storage tanks and drums. GPR can delineate landfills and pathways for contaminant flow, as well as conduct hydrogeologic investigations such as water table mapping. We offer innovative technology to support site assessment needs.

  • Thermal Remediation Inside & Near Buildings & Infrastructure

    In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) Beneath and Around Existing Buildings and Infrastructure; In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) technologies, including In Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD), the Electro-Thermal Dynamic Stripping Process (ET-DSP™), which is an advanced form of electrical resistance heating, and Steam Enhanced Extraction (SEE) have been demonstrated effective in treating source zones with limited access and those adjacent to or beneath buildings and other infrastructure.

  • Solutions for the in-situ soil remediation

    For over twenty years, BioSolve Pinkwater has been used for Surfactant Enhanced Remediation (SER) to mobilize and solubilize residual NAPL[i], facilitating its recovery and disposal. Depending on soil and plume characteristics, Pinkwater solution can reach contaminated zones through deep injection wells or be gravity fed from surface level injection galleries. After desorbing residual NAPL from soil surfaces on contact, Pinkwater then solubilizes the hydrocarbons in an aqueous emulsion, enabling extraction at down gradient recovery wells or trenches.

  • NAPL Fingerprinting Analysis

    Sitelab's mobile laboratory was used by a client at a former oil refinery in Kansas and at a large tank farm in Massachusetts. The UVF data was used to delineate and map subsurface plumes of NAPL. Oil samples were collected from monitoring wells and analyzed for their GRO/DRO or VPH/EPH content.

  • Process design & engineering services for bio-energy industry

    Bio-fuel: A Bio-fuel is a fuel that contains energy from geologically recent carbon fixation. These fuels are produced from living organisms. Bio-fuels are made by a biomass conversion from a wide range of natural and organic resources which includes solid biomass, liquid fuel and biogases. Bio-fuels have increased in popularity because of rising oil prices and the need for energy security. The two main bio-fuels are ethanol and bio-diesel; both type of fuel causes less pollution as compared to conventional diesel- powered engines and have the same performance as a regular diesel fuel.

  • Noise monitoring solutions for sound intensity mapping

    Sound Intensity is the measure of acoustic energy passing through a unit area. By integrating over a surface enclosing an object under test, you can calculate the object`s sound power. This can be done regardless of background noise, allowing convenient, in situ measurements of sound power. Other advantages of sound intensity measurements include the ability to determine the directionality of sound, and to quickly localise noise `hot spots`. Mapping software takes this a stage further by providing you with a contour map of noise levels to provide intuitive documentation of noise problems.

  • GIS software for archaeology

    Archaeologists, as researchers and resource managers, understand the importance of geography. Its variables exert a strong influence on human behavior today, and archaeologists are aware of the significance of this influence in the past. Geography also influences the degree of exposure of archaeological sites, and the impacts that they face from human activity and natural forces. GIS facilitates mapping to analyze depositional patterns as well as catalog and quantify artifacts. It can provide a well-structured descriptive and analytical tool for identifying spatial patterns.

  • Membrane filtration systems for milk

    Since the introduction of membrane processing to the dairy industry in the late 1960`s, separation of dairy fluids using semi-permeable membranes has been used to clarify, concentrate and fractionate a variety of dairy products. The time honored and tested applications involving whey processing, the by-product of cheese making, have introduced a plethora of refined proteins and commercial uses for a once wasted by-product. The membrane applications for fluid milk have been understood for as long as the whey applications but have been underutilized in commercial applications.
