Tech/Engineering - Environment & Ecology / company offering solutions for contaminated soil / industrial sites
English term or phrase: restitution / restoration
"The remediation and restitution / restoration of large-scale contaminated sites and the removal and treatment of the waste streams released, demand a sustainable and professional solution."

Dear colleagues, this is a marketing text of a company that offers solutions for the remediation of contaminated sites like former landfills or sites of industrial production, including sludge dewatering solutions.
"remediation" I translated to "Sanierung", but I would be grateful for any suggestions regarding restitution / restoration. I thought of "Wiederaufbereitung" as a translation for "restoration", but with restitution I'm a bit at a loss. Does it mean that they replace the contanimated soil?

Kind regards, Regina

"restitution" means getting the area back to its original state

und hier ein gutes Beispiel: europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-06-445_de.pdf -
4 abr. 2006 - Obwohl anscheinend keine weiteren Abfälle in diese Deponie verbracht werden, muss der ursprüngliche natürliche Zustand dieses Gebietes noch wiederhergestellt werden. Außerdem wurde die Deponie nicht ordnungsgemäß inspiziert, und es ist kein Managementplan vorgesehen. Daher fordert die.

du könntest den Satz auch umformulieren und etwas mit "wiederhergestellt" sagen

I do a lot of voluntary work with the old and incapacitated, so I hear where you're coming from and nice to find a kindred spirit

I agree Regina and although this is probably not the place for our interchange I agree that it's not only about your skills but how you help and are helped

I could go on on this all day, as it's what is really fulfilling on both parts ... aber jetzt wollen wir uns auf eine brauchbare Übersetzung konzentrieren und ich denke, es wäre besser etwas mit "Wiederherstellung" zu formulieren

Asker: Vielen Dank, David! Das finde ich sehr hilfreich, vielleicht lasse ich es wirklich bei einem Begriff.

Asker: Das ist super nett, Dankeschön! :)

Asker: oh, thanks a lot, David! :) It's nice to be a part of it, and it's interesting to learn about these issues too while translating. But you actually go directly to the people who need help, and I'm sure that makes a huge difference to them, that's wonderful! :)

Sanierung


Explanation:
So kenne ich es nur aus sehr vielen Konferenzen. Wenn due zwei Begriffe vorziehst, dann einfach "Sanierung / Wiedernutzbarmachung". Aber der gängige Begriff ist, wie du bereits selbst vorgeschlagen hast, Sanierung, jedenfalls im europäischen Raum.
