Paper Abstract

High-tech industries are often the cause of groundwater contamination that affects surrounding areas. While steps must be taken to prevent this type of contamination, high-tech industries should be able to procure the required amounts of high-quality groundwater for their manufacturing processes. The objective of the Advanced Environmental Monitoring System (AEMS) project is to develop a new integrated groundwater monitoring system based on innovative technologies in order to facilitate effective management of groundwater contamination in and around high-tech industrial facilities. It will be possible to use the biosensors developed in this project not only to monitor ground and other fresh water from various sources for contamination, but also to assess the toxicity and environmental hazards arising from industrial effluents. The AEMS project provides high-tech industries with the means to fulfill their commitments to modern society. Through this project they can pursue sustainable development, compliance with environmental regulations, responsible corporate citizenship, effective life-cycle management, and improved worker safety.
