How real-time, remote sensor delineation avoids delayination

real-time remote soil sensor installation

The textbook approach to new or legacy spills is to ensure that you have a vertical and horizontal delineation of the pollutants.   This understanding of how deep and wide your pollutant has travelled is essential before you can begin any remediation, restoration, or reclamation process.   The rationale for this approach is that we should not […]

The emergent insights of high-density data replacing low sampling frequency

Data quality.  Data accuracy.  Technology differences. In the era of data-driven insights, what is the role of high density data for soil and groundwater monitoring?  High density data is far from a mere surge in information volume.  It delivers the opportunity for more precision in your modeling and decision making. High Density Data High density […]

The unrealized potential of managing groundwater risk and soil remediation together

Optimal groundwater and soil testing sensor recommendations

Groundwater is a key risk vector for hydrocarbon plumes.   Yet, the majority of hydrocarbons reside in the soil.   Thus, site managers typically use groundwater for risk management and use soil information for remediation modelling.  Here, we will discuss how soil and water sensors can provide insight into risk and liability, providing site owners with a […]

Sustainable Benzene Degradation – A Community Affair

The summary Benzene is toxic, mobile, and does not degrade easily, which is why we are so concerned with it. Many microbes are thought to degrade benzene. In the real world, benzene does not degrade easily. Recent research explains that out of 111 different bacteria, only 2 directly degrade benzene and the rest live on […]

Environmentally Sustainable ESG

The summary In-situ remediation is 100 times less carbon-intensive than ex-situ remediation.  Transportation costs account for 45% to 70% of emissions associated with traditional remediation.  Excavation accounts for 20% to 45% of emissions.   Motor vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of workplace deaths.  An In-Situ Remediation Solution Improves ESG by Reducing GHG emissions Much […]

Artificial Intelligence, Environmental Social Governance, and Scary Movies

The summary Environmental impacts should not just be about events where animals, plants, and fish die. Subtle environmental impacts poison ecosystems over time, slowly reducing the soil’s ability to support plants. Artificial intelligence provides teams with the ability to design, implement, and evaluate management strategies to reduce environmental liability. Such AI systems act like continuous […]

The BioLodestone Explained

The summary Microbial ecosystems within a soil body are in a meta-stable state. Pollution like fuel spills break down the meta-stable state stalling the microbial ecosystems. To repair the meta-stable state, EMS use BioLodestone, a proprietary solution that introduces a diversity of electron acceptors that facilitates ‘hydrocarbon eating bacteria’ growth in the soil. EMS’s BioLodestone […]

The Genesis of the SoilSense

The summary Biological in-situ technologies allow companies to address ESG goals by repairing/restoring the environment without disrupting operations. Incremental Sampling Methodology outperforms standard Phase II Environmental Site Assessments by mapping hydrocarbon plumes, reducing false positives and providing more robust estimates of hydrocarbon concentrations. Natural Source Zone Depletion (NSZD) is a key management technique allowing companies […]

From the Ground Up

The summary The average economic liability of contaminated soils in Canada is around $117 Billion CAD. Across the world, over 10 million Olympic-sized swimming pools worth of soil is contaminated and if dig-n-dump techniques are used to clean them, it would produce the equivalent of 5 years of global carbon emissions. As a science team […]
