Ecologia Environmental Solutions Ltd was set up in March 2000, with some capital investment from Ecologia Soluzione Ambiente Spa (an Italian environmental services company). The intention from the outset was to provide consultancy and remediation services in the contaminated land sector that the directors were already involved in.
Ecologia’s growth between 2001 and 2007 was rapid due to our capability to identify a number of key projects and niche markets (e.g. the insurance sector). This allowed Ecologia to grow organically whilst developing a number of novel remediation techniques. The bioremediation project at the Askern Colliery was a key milestone in the Company’s early development. This work resulted in the publication of the first CL:AIRE technical report (TPD12) on biopile technology.
As the company grew and developed we focussed on development of strong management systems, employing a number of specialist business support figures in areas such as Quality Management, Health & Safety, Human Resources and Accountancy to ensure compliance to best standard and achievement of all the necessary certifications for operating in the environmental sector.
In 2010 Ecologia implemented a management buy out in order to become majority owned by its board of directors in the UK. Since this time it has continued to prosper. Over the years the company has streamlined its service lines and concentrated resources on the core businesses of contaminated land consultancy and contracting.
Our future growth plan is now dictated by a Company Strategy formulated by the Board of Directors in consultation with our Senior Management Team.
Ecologia’s primary objective is to provide remediation design and sustainable remediation solutions to a wide number of customers from property development, insurance, construction to chemical and petrochemical industry. Although the company strategy is focused on developing our core activities Ecologia is still looking to expand the range of ancillary services. Additionally it is our firm belief that coupling cutting edge science with being at the forefront of developing innovation is a key distinguisher and adds commercial value. To support this we employ qualified scientists, working in our in-house laboratory facility to undertake a dedicated programme of R&D.
Ecologia innovative work over the years has been recognised by leading players in the contaminated land market hand has resulted in winning several prestigious Brownfield Briefing awards associated with the development of a number of innovative of technologies or sustainable projects.
