Both soil and groundwater are vital resources but limited in their abundance, quality and quantity. Due to this limitation, the protection of both goods is in accordance with the law, so that a harmful contamination or any other adverse change in their properties can not be obtained.
PROTECTION OF SOIL AND GROUNDWATER AND THE FINSTERWALDER UMWELTTECHNIK
However, harmful soil and groundwater contaminants may originate from a variety of sources, e.g. Old sites, old deposits, dumps, landfills, intermediate and final storage, claims etc.
The transport of pollutants mainly takes place via the pore water of the unsaturated soil zone into the groundwater. Pollutant transport depends on the prevailing pressure and concentration gradients.
A so-called zero emission is not achievable according to the physical laws of mass transport. This means that generally only emission-reducing measures are available.
A CORE COMPETENCE of Finsterwalder Umwelttechnik in this context is the location-based assessment of the EFFICIENCY of any backup or refurbishment measure, regardless of its design, and thus the long-term EMISSION SECURITY of the site investigated. For this we use the emission limit value analysis developed by us and for evaluation our software DESi Variation. Thus, the hazard potential of a location with respect to the protected goods soil and groundwater is known and can be limited from the beginning by measures to a tolerable value.
Emission limit analyzes for the protection of soil and groundwater, we can u. a. for the following application areas:
- Quantitative verification of discharge of a landfill from the aftercare
- Status survey of a suspected area or contaminated site
- Suitability of a site as an intermediate or final repository
- quality-assured use of mineral substitute building materials or industrial by-products, eg. As waste incinerators, in earth structures or for filling of excavations or fractures, etc.
