Mining safeguarding and remedation
Mining as such in its extended definition is part of the primary economic sector. Since early humankind, raw materials have been excavated and turned into i.e. tools, housing or machinery. Transformation towards an environment-friendly and climate neutral society also requires specific raw materials for computer and electro mobility. Each era leaves behind traces of excavation and processing, a potential risk due to lack of structural safety or because of the dispersion of toxic substances into the environment. Our mining and geotechnical experts are specialised in planning the safeguarding and if needed permanent preservation of mining structures in surface or underground mining. No matter whether the mine was abandoned hundreds of years ago, closed shortly, or still active. We build interdisciplinary teams with our experts from environmental and water engineering, quickly and straightforwardly, for dealing with contaminants. We support you in safeguarding your premises temporarily, or turning them sustainably.
In Germany, nuclear power has long been an energy source providing for millions of people. While radioactive waste is generated with any nuclear utilization, its disposal or rather repository had been neglected for many years. This has changed with a growing awareness of risks from nuclear power and its waste.
Modern repositories need to comply with numerous criteria ensuring a safe storage of these problematic substances for many generations, protecting the society from those risks. Together with our experts from geo-technics, tunneling, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and environmental engineering we provide for the successful fullfillment of this challenging task. For the protection of us all, and future generations.
