The Contaminant Hydrogeology Laboratory provides a unique environment for evaluating contaminant behaviour and in situ soil and groundwater remediation technologies at an intermediate scale between laboratory and field testing.
The laboratory is one of the INRS Laboratories for Scientific and Technological Innovation in Environment (LISTE), located in the Québec Metropolitan Technology Park, and can be operated at cold temperatures.
The Contaminant Hydrogeology Laboratory consists of two large-scale experimental tanks in which remediation experiments can be performed under controlled conditions that simulate field conditions. The tanks contain 4 to 9 m3 of soil from contaminated sites or clean soil to which specific contaminants have been added.
The following equipment is also available:
Faculty members, students, and research technicians at the INRS Eau Terre Environnement Research Centre can use the Contaminant Hydrogeology Laboratory for their research projects, with the lab manager’s permission.
Our resources can also be used for internal and external collaborative projects or research and development contracts. Contact us.
