Oceans ESU Ltd
Dr Lucian Gill has an extensive background in chemistry and the remediation of highly contaminated land and water. He specialises in the treatment of waste water using soil based reed beds, which have the ability to degrade complex and persistent organic contaminants.
As director of Oceans ESU Ltd, Lucian has been responsible for the design and installation of many reed bed systems around the world, treating hydrocarbons, landfill leachates, pesticides and many more. Oceans ESU Ltd have also designed and installed 9 of the 10 largest waste water treatment reed bed wetlands in the world with a combined treatment capacity of over 500,000 tonnes of water per day.
Lucian’s interests extend beyond water treatment into holistic catchment management ensuring that the benefits of clean water can be shared by the local communities living alongside oil fields and other industrial developments.
Remediation of Persistent Contamination in Groundwater using Soil Based Reedbeds
A description of how soil reed beds have been used to tackle some of the more persistent organic pollutants commonly found in groundwater. This seminar will explain how the reed beds work and how they can be applied in different scenarios, focusing on the treatment of chlorosolvents and persistent hydrocarbons.
