3D scanning of subsoil should make it faster, cheaper and easier to clean up contaminated soil without the use of excavators.This is the concept behind the innovation project Guided Injection Remediation (GIRem) that Ejlskov A/S, Aarhus University and Airborne Instruments ApS have joined forces to realise. Danish innovation fund Innovationsfonden, has invested DKK 17 million in the project.
Shells petrol station in Brøndby, which has been contaminated by a gasoline spill in 2003 and by contaminant residues dating back from the 1980-90s, is now declared officially cleaned up. The site is successfully remediated by use of Ejlskovs patented in-situ biotechnology Trap & Treat® BOS 200®, which has removed more than 95 percent of the contamination in a few years. The cleanup project is an international example of, how new technology can create an effective alternative to extensive excavation work and land replacement.
Ejlskovs in-situ bioremediation proves again to be the most suitable approach in terms of both costs and performance capabilities for the cleanup of a commercial site contaminated by spill of benzene and organic solvents. This is the conclusion of Circle Ks recent search for a solution to the underground contamination problem at their filling station in Vara. Circle K is now contracting Ejlskov for the task, and for some crucial reasons:
Ejlskov has won a new framework agreement with the Danish Road Directorate, totalling a budget of approx. 5.1 million DKK.
In cooperation with a group of Danish companies and Aarhus University, Ejlskov has entered a project that aims to develop a solution to sludge problems in China derived from primarily agriculture and oil industry.
How to cut remediation costs by 30 - 60%! This is the recipe Ejlskov brings to site owners, site administrators and site developers at the international IFAT trade fair for environmental technology in Munich 14 - 18 May.
Ejlskov has won a bioremediation contract with an industrial client in China for a total of DKK 2.25 million.
RPIs launching of CAT 100™ is a market break through that will lead to new significant results for the in-situ remediation of various chlorinated solvents.
Ejlskov and its Chinese partners have just completed the first phase of a large high frequency investigation at a petrochemical site in China. 161 MIP probings with a total of 2.5 km direct push depth meters were successfully performed allowing the team and its client to determine the extent of underground contamination on and off site.
On 27th October Ejlskov established a subsidiary company and office in China.
Ejlskov's new subsidiary office is in Qingdao, and will serve as a well-situated platform for servicing our clients in nearby provinces.
Ejlskov has successfully completed the installation of 50,000 kg of CAT100™ across 702 injection locations, at an active site in Western Finland.
Ejlskov is excited to announce our first project in South Africa! Working in partnership with our new customer, USK Environmental & Waste Engineering.
A full-scale remediation project in Finland is to be conducted by Ejlskov this summer. The objective of the project is to clean up the source area at a large contamination of chlorinated solvents, and by use of a vertical barrier also to completely remove further risks towards the surrounding environment. The project is among the largest in Finland’s history and will be carried out in cooperation with the client’s consultants.
Ejlskov has signed contracts with two companies in China regarding the remediation of soil and groundwater contaminations and biological treatment of wastewater from chemical industries. This is a major step in Ejlskov’s international development and a clear breakthrough for not only the company but for western remediation technology in general.
Ejlskov welcomes two new colleagues who will work with MIP investigations and contamination analysis in Denmark and internationally.
Ejlskov has partnered with GeoStream UK to bring patented Trap & Treat® BOS 100® and BOS 200® remediation technology to the UK.
Ejlskov was put on the map as an international player in the environmental consultancy sector at the annual committee meeting of the European Law Student Association (ELSA) in Malta. The participating law team from Denmark were all appropriately dressed in Ejlskov sponsored t-shirts.
A remediation team from Ejlskov has arrived in Bologna, Italy to carry out a fast and effective in-situ clean-up operation at a former industrial site contaminated by chlorinated solvents.
Find out in less than five minutes by watching the new Ejlskov film. This guided tour of in-situ remediation demonstrates the process step by step when Trap&Treat® BOS 200® is used at an oil-contaminated site.
Environmental technology and equipment was presented to representatives from a Chinese company during a visit at Ejlskov in September.
Svend Aage Laursen is from August 3 employed as Ejlskovs new Chief Financial Officer. Svend Aage has many years of experience in financial management and accounting in large and medium-sized industrial companies.
One of the biggest challenges for today’s farmers is to increase production per acre while maintaining a sound environmental profile. Ejlskov is contributing to a five-year project to build a platform that will help achieve that goal. Called Future Cropping, the DKK 100 million (EUR 13.4 million) project aims to make crop production more intelligent, sustainable and efficient.
The open house demonstration was held at an St1 petrol station in Lahti, where Ejlskov has initiated remediation activities to clean up soil contaminated by an oil leakage.
AquaConSoil 2015 was a hub of networking activities and expert discussions in Copenhagen last week. For us at Ejlskov, it was a great opportunity to showcase our environmental services and innovative remediation technologies and meet many interesting people from around the world. Some also went home as lucky iPad winners from our AquaConSoil draw.
Business representatives from Denmark and abroad took part in Ejlskovs Open Day event 22 April to see how Ejlskov cleans up oil and petrol-contaminated sites quickly and effectively by advanced in-situ remediation.
Nitrate leaching from agricultural areas is one of the major water resources management problems in Denmark. Prompted by the Danish Commission on Nature and Agriculture new regulation strategies are currently being developed in Denmark based on spatially differentiated N-regulation, where higher N-applications can be allowed in areas with high natural reduction of nitrate in the groundwater and riparian zones.
