Guardian takes control of emissions from land reclamation

Jan 07 2021 Read 284 Times

After decades of neglect, the result of land pollution has reached a level of significance which is now impossible to ignore. Many sites around the world now pose a major hazard for new construction operations and have created a huge clean-up conundrum. With toxic chemicals and pesticides leading to potentially fatal illnesses and for this reason, careful VOC monitoring is required.

The remediation of contaminated land sites can prove to be a challenging undertaking; however, effective boundary monitoring solutions can help to mitigate any environmental issues during construction by effective measurements. Casella demonstrates its commitment to reducing environmental risks with the new Guardian2 site boundary monitor, designed to help site management remain compliant with emission levels, using simultaneous monitoring and reporting of noise, dust, VOC and vibration levels.

The innovative Guardian2 is equipped with photoionization detectors (PID) and measures for VOCs up to 6,000 ppm (parts per million), assessing the emission limits and air quality of an area. The levels need to assessed and continually monitored to ensure the site is safe for operation, and to safeguard the health of the workforce and surrounding area.
