Application Note: HDXRF® for Brownfield Remediation in China
12 February 2019

Rapid urban expansion and economic growth in China are two major trends that are driving demand for new and innovative technologies for environmental remediation. Long standing government policies focused on major regional development have led to both industrialization and urbanization in major economic centers throughout the country. The result has been the fastest growing economy in the world over the last 30 years. However, it has also resulted in significant regional disparities in industrial development. To address these regional differences, new policies that support industrial relocation have emerged, resulting in brownfields at old industrial sites. This has created both a problem and an opportunity.
