They are committed to focusing on carbon reduction by preventing pollution, preserving natural resources, protecting biodivrsity, combating climate change and raising environmental awareness.
In the Beginning
Back in 1996 our client operated a series of landfills in the North and West Midlands of England. They had an obligation under their licenses to manage the environmental impacts on their sites including land, air, and water. The volume of monitoring data steadily increased over the years. It was soon recognised that an efficient way of inputting, collating and retrieving data was essential. MonitorPro was adapoted into their infrastructure and has been used ever since.
More recently our client has increased their operations across Southern England including landfills and waste transfer stations. Different sets of environmental data managed in the system now includes leachate and groundwater (a range of variables including depth, ammoniacal nitrogen, Cl, SO4, conductivity, pH, BOD, COD and a range of metals), gas (CO2, CH4, O2 and pressure).
”As reports can be directly downloaded from the database, this means there is very little effort required to collate the routine data submissions to the appropriate authorities, including the EA. The graphing function can also aid greatly with understanding trends when assessing control/trigger level exceedances or writing reports."Environmental C-ordinatorWaste Management Client
MonitorPro replaced the manual use of 643 spreadsheets, and now provides a holistic environment view to manage and report their environmental data. As reports can be directly downloaded from the database, this means there is very little effort required to collate the routine data submissions to the appropriate authorities, including the EA. The graphing function can also aid greatly with understanding trends when assessing control/trigger level exceedences or writing Annual interpretative reports.
”"Data is collected from a number of operational and restored Landfill sites and is made up of both field readings and laboratory analysis. Much of it is collected to fulfill Environmental Permit requirements which are regulated by the Environment Agency (EA).Environmental C-ordinatorWaste Management Client
