Soil and groundwater contamination can be a time bomb if it’s located under your property. Left alone, it’s likely to cause your property to decline in value. Eventually, it may attract the attention of local environmental authorities, bringing a demand that contaminants are removed. For oil companies that own filling stations, oil depots or oil refineries, the cost of clearing contaminated sites can seem astronomical and overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. With the right approach, managing your environmental liabilities can actually improve the value of your business – benefiting the environment and your reputation at the same time.
At Ejlskov, we have developed our Environmental Asset Management (EAM) toolbox to help you achieve that. Our goal is to provide everything you need to prevent value loss and satisfy environmental regulations with minimal effort. So you can focus on running your business.
The Ejlskov EAM toolbox comprises 3 main elements:
- The EAM database
Our database facilitates day-to-day management of environmental liabilities and prioritisation of remediation resources. For each site, the database records actual contamination status, installations, environmental risks and obligations and total liability costs.
- Advanced site characterization
Using our probing systems, high-resolution sampling and graphic visualisation software, we identify, document and map soil and groundwater contaminants at individual sites.
- Targeted remediation measures
Based on the site characterization, we design and implement your environmental remediation plan. Our technologies effectively contain or eliminate petrol, diesel and organic solvents in soil and groundwater.
Structured environmental asset management provides the transparency you need to maintain an overview of your liabilities. That enables you to set aside the appropriate provisions in your financial accounts – and adjust them accordingly as you reduce your liabilities over time. You’ll notice a long-term difference on your bottom line. If you’re considering selling a site in the near future, we also ensure you have the necessary environmental documentation to negotiate the best possible price with a potential buyer. That’s got to be good for business!
