Numac is proud to be the principal sponsorof the Eco-Forum Conference and leads the way with it's own environmentally friendly products.
Numac is proud to be the principal sponsor of the Eco-Forum Conference and Exhibition March 7-9th in Sydney at Australia's Technology Park.“Numac is excited to be a part of this important event as it brings together the leaders of our industries to focus on creating new innovative solutions to environmental problems, forge new partnerships and share best practices. We are very passionate about our people being part of these discussions and sharing our knowledge.” tells CEO of Numac Ross Raymond.
Numac is sponsoring the Ecoforum Dinner and will be involved in the forums which include the following topics:
- Land and groundwater remediation
- Mine water management
- Water in perspective
- Climate change response
- Sustainability in the Asian century
- Sustainable engineering
- Sustainable cities
“We have a strong focus on the environmental and social sustainability of our business, we work with environmental and geotechnical consulting firms across the eastern seaboard of Australia and strive to be a leading example to the industries in which we work, providing drilling,site divestment and remediation services.” Raymond explains.
This is an important event for Numac as they launch new environmentally friendly products.
“We are proud to be the first in Australia to provide the BioLiner, a plastic liner that will biodegrade when discarded into landfill. This is good news as:
• Future generations won’t have to endure our plastic waste.
• Numac’s plastic waste when disposed to landfill will now start to provide enough renewable energy to power 5 average houses per year.
• The liners are the same as normal PVC disposable liners, but are augmented with an additive, Ecopure which allows natural bacteria in a landfill to break down the material.
• 7Eleven will trial the Bio Liner on all its projects in 2012.”
As well as the Bio Liner product, Numac are amongst the first to introduce MIP or Membrane Interface Probe, a subsurface sampling tool providing high resolution vertical profiling for site assessment & remediation.
Ross explains some key benefits of MIP are;
Live time mapping of contaminated sites – the twitter of soil sampling.
More sample frequencies = more data = better planning and remediation outcomes.
All of which provide enormous cost savings and reduced project timelines
Numac has developed its ISCO/ISCR technology(insitu chemical oxidation/insitu chemical reduction), designed with safety first, the mobile unit is a fully automated blending and injection system for the remediation of contaminated soil and water.
“This now provides Numac customers with a true end to end service provider and solution for the assessment and remediation of contaminated sites. By combining Drilling, Subsurface Sampling, Site Divestment & Remediation capability Numac customers can be confident that they have a smart contractor on their team” explains Raymond.
Key benefits of ISCO/ISCR technology are;
• Little or no excavation, transport & disposal costs;
• Little or no disruption to operational businesses;
• And a big reduction is soil disposal to landfill.
Numac recognizes the impact that our business has on the environment and the need to adopt both products and practices that are more socially and environmentally sustainable.
