From Take-off to Landing: Pioneering PFAS Remediation Enables Residential Redevelopment at a Private Airport

19 March at 1-2pm, Online Event

This Brownfield & Regeneration Network webinar will delve into an award-winning collaborative effort between REGENESIS and Mott MacDonald, marking a pioneering stride in the sustainable remediation of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) contamination.

Utilising an innovative in situ PlumeStop barrier treatment, this project achieved a significant milestone in environmental remediation by effectively addressing PFAS contamination at an airport in England. It represents the first application of its kind in the UK, showcasing injectable permeable reactive barrier that enabled site divestment and redevelopment.

The approach not only underscores the technical feasibility and environmental benefits of addressing complex contaminations but also highlights a successful model of collaboration, innovation, and sustainability in the field of environmental consulting and remediation.

This project won Best Application of Remediation Technologies at the 2023 Brownfield Awards.
