Addressing emerging contaminants through innovation

The environmental remediation industry is constantly changing, and new technology is leading to breakthroughs that are shifting how organizations approach complex environmental issues.

Arcadis is rethinking how organizations can sustainably address both conventional and emerging contaminants through innovation and technological advancements, providing value to their triple bottom line — people, planet and profit.

A better way forward

Eight articles highlighting new insights from Arcadis scientists and engineers who are rethinking the future of site evaluation and remediation are now available through the e-book Advances in Remediation Volume 2.

Article topics include:

  • New technologies are changing how we collect and interpret site data
    Arcadis has implemented mixed reality technology using the Microsoft HoloLens and mobile devices and is using unmanned aerial vehicles for the rapid collection of enormous amounts of georeferenced data in a cost-effective manner.
  • The monitoring well network of the future
    Smart monitoring wells use solar-powered down-well sensors, and transmit data via Bluetooth or wireless connection, making data available on a web-based dashboard to enable viewing of the results in real time.
  • New approaches to site investigation
    Smart Characterization is an innovative approach to site investigation that lowers costs and helps solve the unsolvable problems. The results speak for themselves — the closure of a mile-long trichloroethene (TCE) plume is a prime example.
  • Characterization and treatment of PFASs
    Understanding the complex chemical behavior and liability risks associated with the family of PFAS compounds is key to developing comprehensive PFAS management strategies.
  • Linking renewable energy to sustainable site restoration
    Low temperature thermal remediation is evolving as a more sustainable solution in environmental remediation, and Arcadis’ Thermal In Situ Remediation (TISRTM) is an inexpensive, practical and environmentally sustainable method for raising the temperature of subsurface contaminant treatment zones to expedite biological or hydrolysis contaminant transformation.
  • Navigate a changing regulatory and compliance landscape
    Organizations must look to innovative methods in site investigation and remediation to successfully navigate a changing regulatory and compliance landscape and the increased pressure for efficiency and risk management.

Explore the latest innovations and advancements that could reshape how you approach your remediation projects.
