Environment and contamination

Contaminated soil and sediment pose a risk of damage to our health and the external environment, making building and construction projects where contaminated masses have to be handled more expensive. There are strict requirements for investigation, characterization and disposal of contaminated land.

The soil on land and in sediments in the sea can be contaminated by both man-made environmental toxins or naturally occurring elements.
