Verde to speak at Brownfield & Contaminated Land Conference, Belfast, 1st May

Verde’s Principal Environmental Consultant Malcolm Dowling, has been invited to speak at the Brownfield & Contaminated Land Conference in Belfast on May 1st on the topic:

Clarifying Current Waste Licensing, Permitting & Management Procedures for Brownfield RedevelopmentImplementing Article 27 (ROI)

Malcolm has significant environmental project management experience gained over 20 years.  He is a Chartered Waste Manager (CIWM) and a current member of the Construction Waste Resource Group, which was set up in 2018 by the Irish Department for Communications, Climate Action and Environment to provide a useful platform to discuss and monitor construction and demolition waste issues, including the capacity of the sector to manage its construction and demolition waste.  The Group membership comprises key stakeholders from the Department, Local Authorities, EPA, NWCPO, Construction Industry & Waste Management Industry.

Malcolm is also a former Director of the Irish Waste Management Association (IWMA).

In the majority of construction projects there is generally a requirement to excavate soils, which in most cases are considered a waste under Irish waste legislation. As a result, careful consideration and assessment is required to classify the soils and to determine appropriate disposal and potential re-use options. Verde Environmental Consultants routinely assist design teams and contractors to manage soil disposal in accordance with the appropriate legislation and the ever changing disposal/treatment options.

Verde undertake characterisation of soils as required by landfill regulations and undertake the necessary sampling to assess whether a waste is classified as hazardous or non-hazardous. Our specialists are trained in the use of the appropriate classification tools and have an in-depth knowledge of the relevant legislation and guidance, which allows them to guide clients in establishing cost effective and sustainable soil management solutions.
