EV5515: HYDROCARBON RISK ASSESSMENT AND REMEDIATION (2020-2021)

Last modified: 24 Jun 2020 14:31


Course Overview

Hydrocarbon contamination of land and water has developed into a major issues in the recent decades. This course will allow students to utilise risk assessment models to predict the risk that contaminated site have on both humans and the environment. You will explore how remediation techniques can be used to remediate sites that have recently been contaminated and those that have a long history of contamination.
