waste oil testing Applications in Europe

  • Laboratory equipments for determination of fat, oil and grease (FOG) for waste water monitoring

    Measurement of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in waste water is a crucial parameter in water quality control and environmental monitoring performed by water suppliers’ laboratories and environmental authorities; the contamination builds up in the sewerage system and will eventually lead to blockages. Typically the waste water is analysed by first passing a large volume through a filter then selectively determining the grease build-up on the dried filter by an analytical method.

  • Environmental testing & compliance screening for energy/environmental sector

    Compliance screening and testing is often carried out during the manufacturing phase of a product, and all the way through its disposal or recycling process. It ensures that products and materials meet specific standards or comply with international and local directives or regulations. These standards and regulations are introduced to ensure the quality and safety of a product, and to minimise or eliminate its negative impact on the environment and people. Examples of products or materials tested are: electrical and electronic equipment (for compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive), waste oils, soil (soil remediation depending on contents of toxic metals), children’s products (for compliance with Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008), etc.
