    Environmental Monitoring

    How can we help you?

    Environmental Monitoring

    Environmental Monitoring (Waste Management Programmes)

    This refers to the development of a comprehensive waste program aimed at streamlining an organisationʼs waste management practices in line with Environmental Legislation. It delves deeper into understanding the waste streams and managing each stream through best practice and conducting data analysis on waste generated versus waste recycled versus waste disposed.

    Field monitoring and sampling

    Field monitoring and sampling:

    Regardless of location or field condition, we perform a variety of sampling procedures specifically with regards to the water, dust, occupational hygiene, and mineral waste industries to meet client safety requirements.

    Laboratory services

    Laboratory services:

    With SANS 17025:2017 accredited laboratories and facilities testing is seamless. We test and analyse microbiological, organic, and inorganic substances with advanced technology and qualified personnel to yield fast, reliable results.

    Scientific assessments

    Scientific assessments:

    We offer specialised data processing and reporting including water quality assessments, dust deposition assessments, occupational hygiene reports and environmentally sustainable mineral waste assessments.

    Emission inventory development

    Emission inventory development:

    The emission inventory is a list of the amount of air pollutants discharged into the atmosphere characterised by pollutants. This is specifically in relation to certain companies during a given period.

    The development of a complete emission inventory is an important step in an air quality management process. These inventories help to determine the sources and trends of pollutants and estimate air quality.

    Process-Emission testing

    Process-Emission testing:

    This is the process of monitoring particulate and gaseous emissions from a specific source. This is important to implement meaningful control programmes and well-designed management programmes.
    There are many reasons to conduct process-emission testing like:

    1. Compliance with laws and regulations.
    2. Gathering data which assists the selection and design of control equipment.
    3. Testing the efficiency of control equipment.
    4. Providing more accurate data to develop management programmes.
    Dispersion Modelling

    Dispersion Modelling:

    This is where emissions are mathematically simulated. Dispersion Modelling is an integral part of an integrated approach to exposure assessment. It is used to:

    1. Determine whether a new source of pollutant will adversely affect the environment.
    2. Predict whether controlling the source of the pollutant will be beneficial.
    Ambient Air Quality Monitoring

    Ambient Air Quality Monitoring:

    This monitoring happens over a long period of time to assess outdoor pollution levels systematically. Air Quality Monitoring is carried out to:

    1. Determine the extent of pollution.
    2. Align with national legislation.
    3. Evaluate control options.
    4. Gather data for air quality modelling.
    Carbon reporting

    Carbon reporting:

    This is a report on the total greenhouse gas emissions of a business caused both directly and indirectly. It is an essential first step towards the process of a low carbon strategy. It also presents an opportunity to drive innovation and spark creativity around the reduction of carbon dependency.

    Climate Change impact assessment

    Climate Change impact assessment:

    This refers to the climate of the Earth which is changing unnaturally due to the emission of greenhouse gasses trapping heat into the atmosphere. The impact assessment provides a fair account of the challenges surrounding climate change and greenhouse gasses.
