PROJECTApplying Innovation for Agent Orange Remediation
Restoring contaminated environments and reducing the short- and long-term risks of contamination are critical to protecting the air, water and land. Whether a proactive measure, or driven by regulations, our teams are experienced in supporting clients through the entire remediation life-cycle: from scoping through construction and site operations. We offer an integrated approach to remedial technologies that minimizes risk, reduces life-cycle costs, and brings sites to sustainable closure with potential reuse options.
Our environmental work thrives when integrated, multi-disciplinary project teams are developed mutually.
Integrating the Social Dimension in Remediation Decision-Making
Check out this white paper to gain information on the current practice of sustainable remediation, analytical approaches, and recommendations for new ways to integrate social aspects into the remediation process.
Our engineers and scientists are working tirelessly to solve the world’s most complex contamination challenges. Explore our solutions to the latest threats to public health.
