• 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...
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
Sampling and analysis of fire effluents is an important part of assessing both the environmental impact and the threat to life caused by fires. Detailed knowledge about the composition and concentration of fire effluents is required to gain a good understanding about the potential impacts of fires and for efforts to diminish these impacts. Testing the composition of these fire effluents presents a challenge for the analytical equipment used to measure the gases. The amount of species and concentrations of...
We provide consultancy on aviation and air quality, such as dispersion modelling and emissions inventory compilation for environmental impact assessment at airports. We also conduct research into aviation.
Our commitment is the development of modern solutions to ensure competitiveness to our customers, through better performances in terms of energy savings (low oxygen, low cell voltage), product quality and environmental impact of their productions.
Mine backfill is defined as the material used to fill the cavities (i.e., stopes) created by underground mining. Backfilling can be a means to dispose of sludge and/or tailings which may contain hazardous materials and to reduce surface environmental impacts by storing tailings underground. Alternately, backfilling with nonhazardous materials can allow for mining productivity improvements. To these materials are added a variety of fillers such as fly ash, course sand, or gravels along with a binder, such as...
An beverage processor constructed a new “State of the Art” refrigerated warehouse (15,000 tons of refrigeration) and wanted to reduce water usage, lessen environmental impact, improve worker safety, and also wanted low overall operating cost.
The management of noise from mining operations is recognized as a fundamental responsibility of the mining industry. Implementing a noise management system that includes noise surveys, day and night noise mitigation, and some level of noise monitoring is a primary function that is required to meet environmental impact standards in most locations.
Mining release large volumes of water with a high conductivity due to the mineral salts that it contains. These effluents must be be treated with sand filters or activated carbon filters to reduce the environmental impact. Our range of filters in fiberglass reinforced polyester is highly resistant to corrosion and is, therefore, suitable to withstand these aggresive conditions.
These days we are becoming more and more aware of our environmental impact and carbon footprint, and in some cases the Government may even penalise companies who are not doing all they can to minimise the environmental impact of their activities. The Environment Agency instill certain limitations for industrial waste water users in regards to where and how water may be discharged – whether accidentally or purposefully, the discharge of waste water in to a river can lead to costly fines and very bad PR for...
Modern intelligent traffic systems are designed to move traffic in an efficient manner as well as reduce the environmental impact of traffic on nearby populations. This includes the effects of noise, particle pollution and gases.

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.

As a primary industry, the mining industry faces the needs for optimizing the management of its resources. Exploration and excavation activities should be as efficient as possible. Companies also aim to maintain water resources while at the same time controlling the environmental impact of their activities.
Intelex’s environmental, health and safety and quality software solutions support government organizations around the world in their efforts to provide excellent service, ensure clean, safe drinking water, mitigate environmental impacts and exceed health and safety standards.
Wells, refineries, pipelines, tank farms, and fuel distribution centers are responsible for much hydrocarbon contamination. A significant amount of the environmental impact also comes from residential fuel and oil storage tanks, vehicles, and gas stations. The petrochemical industry needs a cost-effective, predictable, and environmentally sustainable method for dealing with this contamination while keeping operations up and running.
Managing wastewater force mains has historically been difficult for owners. Traditional inspection methods applied in gravity main assessment are not applicable in force mains. Given the high consequence of a force main failure, the need for an innovative approach to managing these challenging pipeline assets is necessary to minimize environmental impact and comply with regulatory requirements.
You’re not alone in wanting to maximise the efficiency of your loading processes while minimising their environmental impact.
Of course, pumping speed is one key factor in keeping lay time to a minimum. There’s a downside to this increased efficiency, though: the greater the pumping speed, the higher the emissions.
Do you want to reduce emission-based complaints while keeping your processes optimised? Do you want to understand how the impact of your emissions is affected by changing weather conditions?...
It is vitally important for today’s Petro-Chemical and Oil manufacturing industries to control the cost efficiency of their operations for investor interests and environmental impact equally. Their laboratories are central to controlling production and most importantly need to provide accurate, transparent and traceable data. All production processes and product quality must adhere to stringent manufacturing regulations; therefore it has become more and more apparent that LIMS are the only way of controlling the...
Environmental noise monitors that connect directly to process measurement and control systems. Many industrial plants have a variety of process sensors strategically placed around their site so that safety, environmental impact and efficiency can be monitored and managed, in real time, from one or more control rooms.
