We are proud to announce that we now have a dedicated team in the ACT and Riverina regions, with Daniel McConnell as our Operations Manager and Emma Zanotto as our Projects Engineer. As locals they will be looking to expand our business with the support of our wider team, and a core of trusted local contractors and consultants to develop and deliver sustainable remediation solutions.
Continued growth in the ACT and Riverina poses a significant challenge for sustainable land management, highlighting the need for innovative remediation techniques and the management of construction wastes to reduce and divert reusable materials from landfill.
Enviropacific has been at the forefront of implementing sustainable remediation practices across the country, employing technologies such as in situ and ex situ immobilisation/stabilisation and passive treatment systems. These techniques address environmental contamination, particularly the remediation of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), pesticides, heavy metals, heavy oils and other petrochemicals, thus facilitating the safe reuse of land.
Daniel, explains, “Sustainable remediation techniques play a crucial role in managing contaminated sites, reversing misguided past practices and optimising land use in the face of urban development. These techniques prioritise the preservation of natural resources, reduce energy consumption, divert waste from landfills, and promote the reuse of treated land.” He goes on to add, “Traditional remediation methods often involve extensive excavation, transportation, and disposal of contaminated soil, leading to significant environmental and economic costs. In contrast, sustainable techniques seek to remediate the site in situ, reducing the disturbance to the surrounding environment and minimizing the carbon footprint.”
Another contaminant that has a significant environmental concern is PFAS due to its widespread use and persistence in the environment. Our team has developed an innovative in situ immobilisation and stabilisation technique for PFAS remediation, which immobilizes the contaminants in place, preventing their migration and reducing risks to human health and the ecosystem. This method not only reduces costs and time associated with excavation and disposal but also allows for the safe reuse of land.
According to Emma, “Sustainable remediation techniques play a vital role in optimising land use and mitigating environmental risks. Enviropacific has emerged as a leader in implementing innovative solutions, such as in situ immobilization and stabilization techniques for PFAS and passive treatment systems for contaminated water. By prioritising sustainability and the safe reuse of land, we are contributing to the development of a more environmentally conscious and resilient region.”
