Accidents and emissions into the environment

We perform risk assessments and take preventative action against urgent and long-term emissions that are affecting the soil.

Actions from industries or accidents such as oil spills can substantially negatively affect the environment. Our meticulous process involves identifying emission sources, calculating how the pollutants spread in the environment, and precisely determining their effects on ecosystems.

Our experts perform urgent risk assessments in the event of sudden releases of hazardous substances into the environment and provide recommendations for decontamination and damage prevention. We often work on behalf of companies with activities that require a permit. The environmental impact of mining operations is one of our areas of strength.

Since the 1970s, IVL's Oil Damage Group has been working with the environmental effects of oil spills. The group develops and supports the authorities' work to prevent and limit damage from oil spills.
