Improvements in Study & Countermeasure
Techniques and Evaluation & Control Methods
GEPC makes an accurate study, analysis, and evaluation
on contamination conditions and their effects on surrounding areas,
also studying countermeasure techniques, control methods, and re-use
of treated soil to offer a most efficient and economical measure.
Study and Research in Japan and Overseas
GEPC cooperates with a number of research institutes
both in Japan and overseas, participates in international conferences,
and dispatches study missions to overseas. The information, findings,
and materials obtained from these activities are used to form appropriate
systems and site investigation and remediation techniques in Japan.
Propagation and PR Activities
GEPC holds study meetings, seminars, and lecture meetings
for the purpose of improving and propagating knowledge and techniques
on soil and groundwater contaminations. The Center also circulates journals
that introduces above activities and its results, as well as technical
