Why relook at existing soil remediation practices?
The industry is worth approximately $170 Billion per annum but has seen limited innovation, resulting in current practices that are time consuming, costly - and ironically, leave a significant carbon footprint. In addition, most practices involve performing assessments at static points in time, thereby limiting the ability to provide real-time visibility on the status of the contaminated soil.
What does EMS technology do?
EMS can evaluate the status of customer sites 24/7/365 by embracing a suite of 3 inter-related technologies driven by the power of data analytics. This unparalleled level of analysis will optimize the soil clean-up strategy and empower decision makers to make timely data-backed decisions. The technology is exceptionally easy to install and designed to be maintenance free. This approach to soil remediation will significantly save time, money, and critically reduce the remediation carbon footprint by 99%.
