Contaminated soil made useful

The Capital Region has a responsibility to detect, investigate and cleanse contaminated soil. The Region spends approximately DKK 140 million a year on this, and they would like to see this money going further. With this in mind – and with a view to developing new environmental technologies for the whole world – the Region is collaborating with researchers and companies to develop new decontamination methods. The methods are tested on a heavily contaminated plot in Skovlunde near Copenhagen, which is open to visitors by appointment. A pumping system prevents the contamination from spreading.
