Atkins wins 2005 IT Merit Award 26/01/2006

Atkins, in partnership with J. McArdle Environmental, has won the prestigious Business Achievement IT Merit Award from the Environmental Business Journal Awards 2005. This was awarded for their innovative waste soil classification tool.

Submitted in December, Atkins’ work on waste classification through CAT-WASTE Soil was selected out of hundreds of entries from companies across the globe.

In developing CAT-WASTE Soil Atkins were aware that manually undertaking waste classification would be a time consuming and costly exercise requiring the assessor to determine the risk phrases, hazard categories and thresholds for every single chemical constituent. Atkins estimated that to undertake a full manual categorisation, which has been fully audited, would take tens of man hours for a relatively small data set.

CAT-WASTE Soil enables its subscribers to get a rapid, first pass assessment, of waste or excess soil allowing for rapid on-site decisions to be made.
