Activities

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 magazines.
