Norwegian term or phrase: Environmental clean up - see below
Note: I do not have the original document in Norwegian, only the English translation which I have been asked to proofread. The subject is analysis of various iniciatives for cleaning up/containing contaminants in the fyords. Certain expressions have been left in Norwegian...in other cases, I have not been able to verify that the term used in English is in fact correct.
1. Spunting or spunt wall (Five technical alternatives...include covering and spunting; the most expensive alternative..is a spunt wall in the outer part of the bay)
2. Jarositt to fjellhaller (X reduced its primary discharge of heavy metals by more than 95% [jarositt to fjellhaller])
3. Jarositt-process (There have been no releases of industrial refuse....since 1968, when the jarositt process began to be used)
4. Skjerfasthet ( the clay has a relatively low skjerfasthet...)
5. Setninger (therefore, the clay??? must be characterized as poor and setninger on the bottom is to be expected.
6. Flakes (pre-fabricated flakes of cloth to be used as a cap for contaminated sediment)
7.Inngysing (the shore line is so steep that a double cloth for inngysing of cement must be sewn in)
8. Gyste (concrete-gyste polyester mats will be used
9. Sprengstein (a bid price will be put forth for the plastering of the beach zone with sprengstein)

Thanks for any insights!

Explanation:
>Spunting or spunt wall

This is most certainly referring to artificial steel walls or plates, being rammed into the ground. The plates are interconnected vertically, so as to form a continuous,vertical wall to prevent the clay (rock/gravel or any other loose material) from sliding out. Most often used to define an excavation site and prevent it from being filled by walls caving in, or water rushing in if it is in a river bed or the bottom of a harbour/bay.Spunt Walls may also be built from armored concrete, but steel walls are mostly used if the wall is needed for a limited time only, like while excavating is being done

>(Five technical alternatives...include covering
and spunting; the most expensive alternative..is a spunt wall in the outer
part of the bay)

A wall of steel plates (or concrete) supposed to prevent contaminated mud or clay in the bottom of the bay from sliding further out into the sea or the fjord

>2. Jarositt to fjellhaller (X reduced its primary discharge of heavy metals
by more than 95% [jarositt to fjellhaller])

Jarositt is a mineral that's a waste product of the Zinc Production Process. This far, there hasn't been invented any use for it, so the processing plant (factory) is currently storing it in huge artificial Mountain Halls, thus reducing primary discharge to the environment by more than 95%.

>3. Jarositt-process (There have been no releases of industrial
refuse....since 1968, when the jarositt process began to be used)

The Jarositt Process (the Zinc producing process that removes unvanted matters like copper, cadmium and iron from the Zinc ore, procucing the waste product Jarositt.) See flow-diagram from Norzinc at web-site below:
>4. Skjerfasthet ( the clay has a relatively low skjerfasthet...)

Resistance to shear tension in a material.(the clay has relatively low resistance to shear tension...)

>5. Setninger (therefore, the clay??? must be characterized as poor and
setninger on the bottom is to be expected.

"Setninger" in this context means instances of non-solid materials (clay/gravel) caving in under pressure
(therefore, the clay must be must be characterized as poor and cave-ins on the bottom is to be expected)

>6. Flakes (pre-fabricated flakes of cloth to be used as a cap for
contaminated sediment)
Sheets/mats (pre-fabricated sheets/mats of cloth to be used as a cap for
contaminated sediment)

>7.Inngysing (the shore line is so steep that a double cloth for inngysing
of cement must be sewn in)

Here: Injection. Inngysing usually means fastening of rods/bolts into holes in rock by injection of a special concrete that expands when hardening, but here it means just the injection of concrete into said cloths.

>8. Gyste (concrete-gyste polyester mats will be used

See point 7. Gyste is past tense participe of the verb "å gyse" which in this context means "Polyester mats injected with concrete.

>9. Sprengstein (a bid price will be put forth for the plastering of the beach
zone with sprengstein)

Waste rock (gravel) from construction sites like mountain halls, tunnels or similar (a bid price will be put forth for the plastering of the beach zone with waste rock)

>Thanks for any insights!

Good luck! :-)
