Services

ENVIT was founded with the aim to transfer newly developed soil remediation technologies from the lab and pilot scale into praxis and on the market. In addition to our own, new technology of soil washing, we offer also other types of soil remediation, from beginning analysis to the final execution of remediation. ENVIT offers safe and cost-effective solutions of complex problems in the field of remediation of soils and sediments. We are also active in searching of solutions of hazardous industrial wastes.

  • Do you need expert help for the identification and quantification of pollutants in your soil or sediment, their impact on you and on the environment? Do you wish to solve your problem in a sustainable way, using the most suitable remediation technique for your contaminated soils, sediments or industrial wastes? Our team of experts offers you professional consultancy and prepares an action plan of analyses and remedial strategy, according to your needs.

  • Risk assessment is given according to the results of measurements of the concentration and bioavailability of pollutants in soils, sediments and waste. Risk assessment is evaluated in accordance with the Slovenian and international legislation and standards.

    Pollutants in soils and sediments are dangerous only if they are transferred into the environment. In our laboratory, we perform laboratory techniques to determine the mobility and bioavailability of pollutants in different solid media.

    Mobility assays:

    • Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) (US EPA 1311) for the assessment of mobility of organic and inorganic pollutants in soils, sediments and wastes;
    • One-stage leaching procedure (SIST EN 12457-4) for the waste characterization.

    Bioavailability assays:

    • In vitro Physiologically Based Extraction Tests (PBET) to assess the bioaccessibility of metals in human digestive system;
    • Bioaccumulation assays with bio-indicator species for the assessment of the bioavailability of metals and their magnification potential in the food chain;
    • Phyto-availability assays for the assessment of the metal transfer from soils and sediments into plants.
  • We perform feasibility studies for different soil, sediment and waste remediation technologies in order to determine the best remediation approach for each investigated situation. Engineering, technological, economic, environmental and social aspects are included in the studies. The feasibility studies are firstly performed in laboratory and then on a pilot scale. The tested remediation techniques are optimized and customized throughout the study for each investigated case.

  • ENVIT offers complete service for soil and sediment remediation, from analysis of soil pollution, environmental impact assessment, to the planning of remediation strategy, which includes the implementation, control and final certification of the results adapted to the customer`s needs and goals of the final soil use.

    We are aware that the remediation of soils and sediments in a complex process, which in addition to the research of the area, assessment of the remediation potential and intended future use of the area, includes also compliance with the legislation requirements and cooperation with landowners and local authorities. For each project, we pay attention to every single stage.

    ENVIT offers multidisciplinary solutions for remediation of all types of soils. Each project is different, therefore we take care of flawless technical execution and fixed price.
    Be it a small or a large project, you can trust ENVIT`s planning and execution of the project, tailored to your requirements, now and in the future.

    In the set of our remediation technologies for soils and sediments, there is also a vew soil washing technology with a use of a ligand EDTA.
