Environmental Testing


Our expertise spans a wide variety of environmental technologies, from the destruction of PCBs as well as organic and halogenated compounds to the assessment of environmentally friendly wood preservatives, lubricating oils and oil-free bearing systems. We evaluate products and processes using life cycle assessment. Our environmental testing facility is supported by a network of laboratories which includes applied chemistry, metallurgy, civil, mechanical and electrical testing laboratories.
