Minerals & Waste

Ecological consultancy and contracting services for minerals and waste sites, including mines, quarries, landfills, recycling and composting centres.

Ecosulis has a proven track record of taking an innovative approach to mineral and waste projects that ensures designs and plans are accepted by the relevant statutory consultees and that the needs of biodiversity, trees and development are balanced.

We understand that extensions to existing sites often have less scope for biodiversity enhancements than other types of development, due to the presence of existing facilities and infrastructure and the limited availability of adjacent land. Also, because of the scale of most mineral and waste projects, the biodiversity footprint can be large in the absence of a suitably designed and landscape-scale mitigation strategy. Similarly, there are fewer alternative locations for new projects and these tend to be restricted by specific legislation, planning policy, transport networks, economic viability and presence of existing facilities. Eosulis also has extensive experience of working with mineral and waste operators to maximise the biodiversity potential of post-extraction and restoration projects.

Ecosulis has the experience to deliver tailor-made and cost-effective solutions to help mineral and waste projects remain on time and on budget from inception to completion. We operate throughout the UK and work with our clients to identify potential ecological and arboricultural constraints and opportunities at the outset, to avoid costly delays at the later stages of a project. With our in-depth knowledge of current legislation and environmental policy, we can devise strategies to avoid conflict, deliver projects and achieve positive biodiversity gain.
