In 2012, ISA Lille's environmental science research unit integrated into a regional laboratory to form LGCgE (Laboratory of Civil and geoEnvironmental Engineering).
Sustainable Management of Pollution
Increasing urbanization, intensive agriculture as well as the industrial past of our region guided the research thematic of the laboratory on the management of soils which are affected at various levels by anthropogenic activities. Scientific and technical arguments have been given to help the conservation and the improvement of soil quality with environmental and healthy preoccupations for many years.
