Working on the Ecosystem Land Use Modelling & Soil C Flux Trial (ELUM)

October 25, 2011

Much of our training recently has been onsite and we have been delighted to be involved with the ELUM project with the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) who are leading a seven-member consortium project funded and commissioned by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) to produce a framework for predicting the sustainability of bioenergy deployment across the UK and internationally.

More details can be found on .

This project is unique in combining a large number of field studies with state-of-the-art process models, to help map the UK bioenergy carbon opportunity up to 2050. We have provided a window sampling system to insert the numerous monitoring wells onsite.  In addition we have provided training on the equipment during the set-up stage of the project.

The need to search for sustainable energy is known to most of us as being essential if we are to maintain or improve our current living standards and at the same time to mitigate climate change by reducing the use of fossil fuels. Increasing our reliance on renewable energy sources is vital and this project is key in ascertaining the position of future renewable sources in the future.

Another Window Sampling Set has been provided to CEH Wallingford for sand dune and wetlands research. Full training was provided on site on the full range of equipment. If you would like more information on our versatile window sampling, percussion drilling, lost cone and stitz corer equipment call Yvonne on 01428 664851 or email
