We recently introduced and dispatched to all our customers and contacts our new catalogue – have you received yours yet? At this time of year there is no better time to take a few moments to flick through and see if we have the equipment you need.
2008 was the year our Environmental Soil, Groundwater Research and Remediation course was firmly positioned as the leading training event for anyone involved in environmental field work and field work project management.
Have you written your Christmas List yet? If you haven't included a bike then you’re really not 'in' for as fast as the Chinese are ditching their bikes as the car becomes 'king' in Peking; in the UK cycling has become 'hip' and helps save the planet too!
To the Middle East that is – Dubai. Ikky and Vincent recently visited Al Futtaim Bodycote Testing UAE to demonstrate our Percussion Drilling Set on a construction site where the next tallest building in the world will be built. Environmental impact research for contaminants was underway as well as monitoring of the on-site water levels.
The Climate Change Bill could potentially cost taxpayers far more than it repays in benefits and figures from various websites suggest a worst case scenario which puts a net cost of £10,000 on each UK household. But this is just one side of the debate because the Government has told us that the costs of not acting on climate change would be higher than the costs of acting now - so what are we to believe?
At Van Walt we’re proud to have brought on line several new products in 2008 including:
Total Fluids Pump - Auto Reclaimer, The MRZB, GeoSub 12 Volt Impeller Pump, Stainless Steel GeoSub DC Impeller and the Trime Pico Soil Moisture Sensor.
