CASE STUDY: New innovative device for real-time measurement of petroleum contamination in soil

CSIRO, together with Ziltek Pty Ltd, have developed an innovative hand-held device for real-time measurement of petroleum contamination in soil. 

The device, RemScan, is helping to provide a more accurate assessment of contaminated soil volumes, saving disposal costs and reducing the total waste going to landfill.   

“Where previously technologies were available for real-time detection of heavy metals and volatile organics, RemScan now offers the ability to measure Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons in the field”, said Dr Richard Stewart, Ziltek’s Managing Director. 

Further information is now available about:

  • How it works
  • Potential applications

The Australian Environment Business Network (AEBN) will hold a Seminar and Workshop on Contaminated Land Management on 31 July 2013 at Ashurst Australia (formerly: Blake Dawson law firm).  

The Seminar and Workshop has been designed specifically for landowners, occupiers, sellers, purchasers, councils and developers. 

The Seminar will provide the latest information regarding your regulatory and legal obligations for managing and containing contaminated land and will explore the legal system.  The Workshop will explore the different assessment options available that may be undertaken as part of a due diligence process, including the strengths and weaknesses of each of those assessment types. 

The Seminar and Workshop will provide important information to prevent the pitfalls which can often be experienced by those involved in managing contaminated land.
