CHEMICAL CONTAMINANTS AND THE ENVIRONMENT
The effects of environmental contamination are far-ranging in the industrial age. The nature of the industrial revolution and the lack of a sustainable development model for industrial progress have allowed the creation of chemicals and products which may serve the idea of convenience, productivity, or efficiency, however, the concept of environmental stewardship is largely an afterthought. This has led to long-lasting chemicals which persist in the environment and are potentially toxic to life.
PERSISTENCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION AND CHEMICAL PATHWAYS TO HUMANS
The effects of contamination on the environment are not limited to terrestrial ecosystems because the synthetic chemicals are not degraded by the normal processes of life. From there, the pollution can travel through the roots of plants into any herbivore which consumes the plant and on and on and on until it reaches the highest organisms in the food web: humans.
ENVIRONMENTAL LIABILITY HEATH AND INVESTMENT RISK OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION
In the 21st century, the concept of environmental liability is evolving towards a polluter-pay model in which the generator of the pollution is responsible for costs of cleanup and in certain cases, the costs of health effects that can be directly proven to have resulted from the cause of the environmental problem.
ENVRIONMENTAL REMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATION
Thus, removing environmental contamination from the land not only removes the contamination from the land, it prevents contamination from entering the food web, it aids in the mitigation of adverse health effects like cancer, and it removes potentially costly liability. Eliminating the liability now, effectively removes the risk to future earnings and worth. It will mean a short term capital investment to minimize the effects of environmental pollution, to maximize any health effects mitigation which may occur, and to maximize the value of the land. In an age where businesses increasingly have to consider greater risk to do business, the opportunity exists to minimize or eliminate a potential risk factor against the continued success of your business. It is prudent planning to minimize the amount of risk and the overall effect of that risk on the current and future earnings of your business. That is the promise that remediation brings.
EFFECTS ON LAND VALUE AND THE ECOSYSTEM
Environmental Contamination can have sustained, damaging effects to the ecosystem as well as the current and future utilization of a parcel of land. Thus, it is beneficial and arguably, imperative that steps be taken to improve all aspects concerning forms of environmental contamination and health effects by quickly conducting remediation of contamination in the environment.

HOW CAN TERRATECHNIK REDUCE THE EFFECTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION?
TERRATECHNIK CAN ELIMINATE THE CONTAMINIATION
Terratechnik Environmental has the expertise, experience, and capabilities to quickly conduct remediation of contamination. This means lower costs and less time in the field conducting remediation on the land, which will mean lower material and labour costs, quicker turnaround time, more productive land, and improved valuation of the land.
TERRATECHNIK CAN EFFICIENTLY REMEDIATE YOUR LAND
In many instances, a contaminated site also requires remediation work to be completed before major construction can start. Often this means downtime and a delay in the completion of a project. With the expertise of Terratechnik, this downtime will be minimized so that the project can proceed as soon as possible.
TERRATECHNIK CAN ELIMIATE YOUR FINANCIAL LIABLITY
The effect of quickly eliminating contamination means any liability derived from the land is mitigated and would reduce liability concerns, derived from the land, on current and future earnings. Additionally, for land owners, eliminating contamination and reducing liability means any construction projects can proceed with a minimal delay (ie, the subdivision will go ahead as planned or the company's head office complex will be completed on time or the sale of the land can go ahead without delay). Terratechnik Environmental has the expertise, experience, and equipment to eliminate contamination quickly.
