Summary: ENFO is an on-line developed information system for environmentally efficient and environment conscious decision making. The developed system informs the problem holder about data and correlation between environmental elements, chemical substances, pollution and environmental damages, land-use, effects and impacted elements and activities.
The ENFO project provided systematic information on the legal background, environmental monitoring, risk and life cycle assessment, risk reduction methods and technologies demonstrated with focus on the central area of Hungary. The Glossary contains explanations in the field of environmental law, environmental sciences and the relevant technical background.
If you navigate in the Database you can get acquainted with traditional and innovative methods able to measure and assess the actual condition of the environment inclusive of its deterioration or you get to know technologies able to maintain the environment healthy or technologies to remediate it.
Clicking on the Photos button you are given a quick and expressive overview of the areas of interest covered by the ENFO project. The Maps visualise GIS data layers and other environmental data types and help in locating environmental companies, institutions providing information relevant to the respective spot. If you click on the Decision Support (DST) button and you select a specific problem within it, you will be guided through the steps to be taken both in terms of the legal or scientific background.
E-learning gives you an insight into the scientific and practical basis of the modern environmental engineering.
The content of the ENFO webpage is arranged in a matrix form combining the environmental elements and their deterioration with the relevant examination methods and remediation, cleaning, treatment procedures. The matrix itself is a table having the environmental elements and their deterioration along its horizontal line and the methods and technologies along the vertical line. This matrix-like arrangement can be found under the Photos and E-learning menus. http://enfo.agt.bme.hu/drupal/en/node/4
