What is a Life Cycle Assessment? Life Cycle Assessment is a methodological framework (defined in the DIN ISO 14040/44) to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product`s life from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling.
based in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, GERMANY.
• Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a complex of measures aimed to identify the character, intensity and severity of impact on the environment and public health caused by any kind of planned economic activity.
• The purpose of an EIA is to develop the necessary measures to prevent the harmful effects of the proposed economic activity on the environment or minimization of this influence if you can’t eliminate it. EIA is carried out during the design phase, before the construction of the facility.
• As a...
Analytical precision is essential, whether remediation is to abide by regulatory provisions or for development projects. With specific standards in place for each region and situation, Maxxam has developed comprehensive test packages for soil, groundwater, sediments, surface water and soil vapour to meet provincial regulations and/or Canada-wide Standards as set out by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment.
No matter what the size of the project is, we service residential, commercial, industrial, local, state and federal agency clients, conducting environmental site assessments, deterministic and probabilistic risk characterizations and Indoor Air Forensic I
EcoConServ is seeking a qualified Environmental Management Specialist to assist with its work load including, but not limited to, the management of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs), Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), environmental health and sa
GPR and EM play an integral part by providing a non-intrusive means of examining the subsurface for environmental hazards such as soil contamination, underground storage tanks and drums. GPR can delineate landfills and pathways for contaminant flow, as well as conduct hydrogeologic investigations such as water table mapping. We offer innovative technology to support site assessment needs.
The XL2 Sound Level Meter provides the dedicated solution for monitoring environmental noise in industry and communities. It measures levels and detailed spectral information in parallel and stores the data on an SD card for post-processing and reporting. A linear audio file (wav-file) may be recorded for detailed simultaneous analysis.
The type approved class 1 sound level meter offers a flexible handheld instrument with accurate and reliable measurements. Data recording can be scheduled to occur at pre-determine...
The Q EHS Environmental Reporting suite provides key tools for compliance with
environmental legislation pertaining to the management, storage, use release, and disposal
of hazardous materials.
The software was developed to produce a variety of practical reports
• Performance and compliance assessments
• Regulatory report submittals
• Metrics and trend analyses for facility, divisional, and corporate management
• On-site environmental incident occurrences

With its expertise in calculating and managing emissions data, CERC offers a range of services to assess greenhouse gas emissions, from determining the carbon footprint of a single industrial process, to compiling a greenhouse gas inventory for a whole geographical area.
CERC uses methods and emission factors laid out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Emissions from transport, industrial, heating and agricultural activities are calculated and stored using the EMIT software package.
noise3D enables commercial and industrial users to assess noise levels with the latest available propagation programs, without having to purchase expensive software. Instead, the 3D modeling software Trimble Navigation SketchUp or Google Earth (Pro) are used as interface. You can use your own planning documents, such as scanned maps for digitization, or transfer data from Google Earth for a simpler option.
Managing tasks associated with compliance (regulatory, ISO, customer, auditing) requires
tremendous oversight. Companies often become reactive to organizational incidents,
spending precious time and resources “managing” through a resolution rather than
proactively addressing issues before they become problems.
Q EHS Activity Management reverses the cycle with a comprehensive tool set to
improve processes related to tasks, audits, inspections, incidents, and spills. It provides a
means to rapidly assess and...
Environmental noise is a major issue in most countries, especially in areas of high population, and the sources of noise and their adverse effects on our well-being are varied. In terms of assessing the impact of these issues, we need to be able to make suitable noise measurements, or in some cases monitor the noise levels for longer periods.
Acoustic Associates have been involved on numerous large scale projects, in the quarrying, mining, power generation and waste management sectors where the Secretary of State required full Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) to be able to properly assess and balance the suitability and sustainability of large scale developments. Acoustic Associates can provide the noise chapters for these EIA’s and are happy to work in interdisciplinary teams to provide co-ordinated and seamless reports. Acoustic Associates has...
Environmental engineers, consultants and geophysicists can use ImpulseRadar GPR for: Hazardous waste disposal and ground contamination studies. Ground water studies – water content / saltwater intrusion. Landfill delineation. Site investigations and assessment. Underground storage tank and drum investigations.
Noise has become the primary source of environmental disturbance. In 2002, the European Union took decisive action in the form of directive 2002/49/CE relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise. Through the use of strategic noise mapping, every urban community must implement an action plan to combat noise pollution. The monitoring of noise levels in urban environments is therefore an essential factor.
Environmental cleanup is an important application for LWT dredges. Mud Cat and Pit Hog dredges are used for chemical and biological cleanup in harbors, rivers and lakes. The patented auger shroud on the Mud Cat dredges minimizes turbidity, and entraps suspended material for suction efficiency. LWT’s automated controls and instrumentation allows the operators to assess real time performance of the dredge technology.
Environmental noise is unwanted sound and vibration coming from a plethora of sources, among them industrial plants, road and rail traffic, construction work, and aircraft. Add to these sports events, shooting ranges, leisure parks, etc, and you have noise from many different sources, each with different characteristics and posing specific problems for the professionals who have to assess them. The way the problems are dealt with differs immensely from country to country and is very much dependent on culture,...
The process of electricity generation from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas is water-intensive. Between 40-50% of all water abstracted and used in developed countries is used in the generation of electricity. Thus, a reliable, abundant and predictable source of raw water supply to a power plant is a critical factor in site selection. Water supplies are required to provide various process waters for the following essential main purposes such as make-up water, cooling water for steam turbine condensers,...
