Element supports property owners, environmental consultants, and real estate developers with a broad range of analysis and testing services for the remediation of sites and brownfields.

Contaminated soils can pose a threat to human health, plants, animals, groundwater and complete ecosystems. In acute environmental pollution cases, remediation of the affected soils and waters is often the obvious consequence.

When developing brownfields for residential or commercial projects, a careful examination of the site is necessary to detect hidden contaminations. Element's experts assist municipalities, property owners, environmental consultants and real-estate developers in identifying contaminated sites and remediating them.

Element can provide a broad range of soil and water testing services to identify the contamination of industrial sites or brownfields during an Environmental Site Assessment. This includes collecting soil, sediment, and water samples to analyze them for possible contaminants. At on-going site remediations, we perform bench-scale experiments to physically replicate the decontamination progress.
