Recent projects

Tomato Cultivation: Southern Italy

A nematicide used widely on tomato crops across Europe is currently only available to growers under emergency license. Southern Italian farmers have relied on the soil fumigant – 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D) – for more than 50 years to manage plant parasitic nematodes (microscopic worms) in tomato cultivation.

Using an enforcement undertaking to improve river water quality

Ramboll was appointed to assist with a water pollution offence in a river in south-west England in 2014. The failure to dam a river during a road construction project meant that an accidental chemical release led to a number of fish being killed. Working with legal partners, our damage assessors (comprising ecologists, eco-toxicologists and economists) undertook a project to value the damage and identify compensatory actions that were accepted by the Environment Agency.
