Abandoned and Contaminated Sites
Buying or selling a piece of land may be a risk due to unknown environmental hazards hidden on the site. The polluter or - if not available - his legal successor is held liable for decontamination and/or land reclamation in many countries. We explore suspected sites following the high standards of the German soil protection law (Bundesbodenschutzgesetz) or other applicable guidelines.
Depending on the history of the site we go for the most probable substance classes in soil, air and water using the appropriate sampling techniques. We have worked for industry, administration and interested buyers.
The variety of these cases is very high due to chemical substance, history, site conditions and climate.
