Sustainable Remediation Appraisal

This course presents an overview of sustainable remediation. In the first instance looking at the emergence of sustainable remediation as a topic and defining what it means. Secondly, by introducing the frameworks and guidance that have been developed and examining how these may be applied in practice. Finally, it looks at the range of tools and techniques that may be applied through the life-cycle of the process.

Course Structure

The course consists of 11 modules and two assessments. The first assessment is set after module 1 and the second on completion of all the modules. Module 1 consists of a video and recommended reading list, with the remaining modules containing a video and further reading options.

Module 1 Introduction to Sustainable Remediation
Module 2 Sustainable Remediation Frameworks
Module 3 Problem Definition
Module 4 Sustainability Indicators for Remediation Projects
Module 5 Implementing Sustainable Remediation in Projects
Module 6 Best Management Practices (BMP)
Module 7 Qualitative Appraisal
Module 8 Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA)
Module 9 Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA)
Module 10 Life-Cycle Analysis
Module 11 Summary

Objectives

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Define sustainable remediation and understand the difference between sustainable and green remediation
  • Understand and appreciate the frameworks that have been developed to help implement sustainable remediation
  • Identify environmental, social, and economic indicators and metrics and give examples of each
  • Integrate sustainability at any part of the project life-cycle
  • Describe the range of approaches and tools that may be used in the sustainable remediation process and understand some of the strengths and limitations of each

Soil and Groundwater Risk Assessment

The Model Procedures for the Management of Land Contamination sets out three stages in managing risks from pollutant linkages. The first stage is risk assessment and is key to identifying the pollutant linkages causing unacceptable risk.

This course presents the key stages to soil and groundwater risk assessment. It underpins risk based management of soil and groundwater contamination and also informs sustainable management solutions.

Course Structure

The course consists of 12 modules and two assessments. The first assessment is set after module 1 and the second on completion of all the modules. Module 1 consists of a video and recommended reading list, with the remaining modules containing a video and further reading options.

Module 1 Introduction to Soil and Groundwater Risk Assessment
Module 2 Problem Formulation and the Conceptual Site Model
Module 3 Tier 1 Screening – Generic Quantitative Risk Assessment
Module 4 Tier 2 – Detailed Quantitative Risk Assessment
Module 5 Human Health QRA – Exposure Modelling
Module 6 Human Health QRA – Toxicity Assessment and Risk Characterisation
Module 7 Ecological Risk Assessment
Module 8 Water Resources Risk Assessment
Module 9 Assessing Uncertainty
Module 10 Risk Evaluation
Module 11 Risk Management Strategies
Module 12 Verification

Objectives

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand why it is important to carry out a risk assessment when assessing soil and groundwater contamination
  • Describe how to formulate the problem and how to develop a conceptual site model
  • Understand why we have screening levels and how they should be used
  • Understand the principles behind human health quantitative risk assessment
  • Understand the principles behind ecological and water resources risk assessment
  • Understand the importance of assessing uncertainty when evaluating risks and developing risk management strategies
  • Demonstrate that the risk has been reduced
