Green Remediation:  As residents of the United States, we value natural, cultural, economic and climate resources.  Using greener remediation strategies is often a smarter way to clean up contaminated land, water and air. Greener cleanup can be helpful in decreasing the use of fossil resources, which helps to reduce the carbon foot print generated during the cleanup process. Best Management Practice (BMP) is key to the green remediation.

In general, a green strategy started during the early stages of a project could provide socio-economic benefits. Greener cleanup processes do not mean leaving hazardous chemicals untreated.  ENVOCARE encourages their subcontractors and employees to implement a “no-idling” policy, by selecting a groundwater treatment option that produces lesser carbon dioxide foot-print.  When it is practical, bio-remediation is preferred method of remediation.  Reducing energy used by implementation of a passive vent system. Minimization of transportation of contaminated soil also helps conserve natural resources.

Core elements of green remediation are:

  1. Energy need of the active system
  2. Air emissions reductions
  3. Water requirements and impacts on water resources
  4. Land and ecosystem impacts
  5. Beneficial reuse
  6. Material consumption and waste generation
  7. Long-term stewardship actions

ENVOCARE promotes their clients and employees to incorporate sustainable solutions to provide broad cost effective socio-economic solutions.   Early planning and environmental stewardship brings social and economic benefits through the community. Sustainability principles shall be considered early and throughout project.
