Over the last couple of months, Ecologia had been involved in site investigation works at a at shooting ground in the South East where traditional laboratory heavy metal analysis of soil samples for lead has been combined with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) analysis. Correlation between laboratory analysis and ED-XRF results was very good. This significantly reduced the analytical costs of the investigation allowing the collection of a greater number of samples which, in turn, provided a better understanding of the contamination encountered across the site. The findings of the investigation are currently being used to finalise an appropriate remediation strategy for the site.
