Environmental research

Understanding the quality of soil, groundwater, and sediment holds immense significance in determining the value of real estate, assessing liabilities, and evaluating the risks associated with environmental pollution.

General environmental soil investigation

The objective of this type of research is to achieve an understanding of the environmental and hygienic quality of the soil, as well as to identify potential contaminants present in the soil. Utilizing the outcomes of these investigations, alongside the intended use of the land, determinations are made regarding the need for remediation.

Environmental research plays an essential role in establishing both qualitative and quantitative evaluations of soil quality, as well as the quality of (ground) water and aquatic sediment.
