Efficient Tools or Analysis and Design of Military Geotechnical Structures
Contaminated site characterisation and remediation (e.g PFAS); environmental analysis of explosives and chemical warfare residues
Used globally at military sites, firefighting foams containing perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are effective at fighting jet fuel fires; however, they are extremely difficult to remediate. Using commonly available proteins, our team is pioneering research into PFAS remediation from soil and groundwater. Additionally, our geoenvironmental laboratory is equipped to detect chemicals associated with explosives and chemical warfare residues using advanced analytical equipment.
