Environment Specialty Analyses
SGS offers a range of accredited laboratory specialty analyses services to provide the data you need to ensure you operate in an environmentally sound way that meets all changing environmental regulations.
Fully accredited at local and international level, we are recognised as a world leader in laboratory testing and analyses. Our experienced teams will help you to innovate, adapt your production methods and invest in processes that improve your environmental performance. We examine a wide range of environmental analytical parameters, including:
- Air and gas
- Dust and particles
- Soil, sludge and sediment
- Water (waste water, groundwater, surface water, process water, drinking water, ballast water, sea water)
- Waste (hazardous waste, industrial waste)
- Sewage and leachate
- Asbestos and other mineral fibres
As well as carrying out routine analyses to investigate contamination, our global network of accredited laboratories conduct more detailed, specialty analyses to identify even very low concentrations of complex, new generation pollutants. We provide state-of-the-art testing facilities to examine samples for low-level concentrations of an extensive list of micro-pollutants and persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Target compounds are carefully selected and continuously reviewed and updated to make sure they include all those required under present local and international legislation. We also include those substances that we anticipate will be of concern for future environmental regulations.
Our independent environmental reports are a valuable tool to demonstrate that you are operating in an environmentally responsible manner. They also enable you to prioritise an action plan to reduce the emission of hazardous substances into the environment.
Your soil quality and its properties are key components for good environmental management. Contamination from toxins and waste must be monitored and could be required by law for your industry. Our soil analysis can help you determine levels of environmental pollutants and prioritise a decontamination plan if it is needed.
