Since the early years of the company, ENVEA has offered complete, consistent, turnkey gas and particle monitoring analyzers and technologies. To develop a sustainable strategy, we have always looked to diversify and develop state-of-the-art products. The business units in the Group encompass:
- Air Quality – Since the early years of the company, ENVEA has developed air quality monitoring instrumentation for pollution surveillance. The current e-Series ambient air monitors include unique features of sustainable eco-design, low carbon footprint, ultra low power consumption, and over 95% of the analyzers are recyclable.
- Emissions – By studying existing and emerging industrial stack emission regulations, the Group developed instrumentation especially for measuring very low or high concentration levels exclusively focused on emissions. Multi-parameter analysis, sampling and processing systems implement the latest technologies in gas & dust analysis.
- Data Acquisition & Processing – ENVEA Group’s data management technologies validate information gathered by the analyzers. In turn, this anticipates environmental concerns so actions can be taken before pollution begins. Our expertise is focused on design and implementation of customized software and hosting data centers of air quality monitoring networks and industrial emissions for regulatory reporting and pollution surveillance.
- Particulates – ENVEA Group is an expert in continuous measurement of particulate emissions, dust releases, and gas flow within industrial stacks and process. In harsh environments where standard monitors cannot operate, our technologies make it possible to comply with regulations and improve industrial performance and increase profitability.
- Process & Optimization – ENVEA Group’s specialty of optimizing production processes for the industrial sector results in energy savings, limits material loss, and reduces pollution. Detection and measurement systems for solids, powders, dusts and granulates provide solutions to increase efficiency and product quality and prevent emission excess.
- Dioxins – with its AMESA range, ENVEA specializes in the long-term, continuous sampling of dioxins, furans and other persistent organic pollutants (UPOPs) in order to reduce their emissions in the environment with respect to the Stockholm Convention and the IED Directive 2010/75/EU.
- Mercury – The Group offers customized measurement solutions for industrial process, laboratory safety, and ambient air emission. We have developed a unique technology, internationnally recognized, that avoids the use of chemical reagents, resulting in low operation and ownership costs.
- TDL Sensors – ENVEA UK’s laser gas analyser R&D development was founded in 1999 when TDL Sensors Ltd was spun out of the University of Manchester, to develop a tunable diode laser based gas analysers. In the following years, ENVEA UK have developed measurement solutions for the glass coating industry, ultra-harsh processes, enclosed atmospheres for the protection of personnel, air quality monitoring and for the oil and gas industries. Using laser absorption spectroscopy ENVEA can measure the gases that are important to your process, application or even your co-workers well-being and safety.
- Engine exhausts – ENVEA Group has an extensive expertise in engine exhaust gas analysis systems. Designed to measure emissions from combustion engines regardless of fuel type, these are designed to comply with the latest engine emission regulation in a modular design.
- Micro-Sensors – The Cairsens sensors are integrated systems allowing for measurement of odors and air quality down to the ppb concentration levels. Can be standalone, powered by solar panels allowing for exterior set up. They can be integrated with autonomous and wireless for real-time data access. Data management is on the Cloud, with access by PC or an App.
By combining ENVEA’s technologies, the company is unified, strengthened. All the business and manufacturing units come together to maintain the company’s commitment to solving complex new challenges within environmental monitoring realm. Our diverse product lines converge to provide consistent and reliable performance, greater efficiency, cost reduction, manageability, and sustainability.
“There were the «old days», first as a teenager I would day dream as I passed by the different company buildings. Then as a young engineer at the first Ministry of the Environment, my true desire in wanting to take action and develop measurement devices came to life, by creating a business and helping implement public environmental policies into the private sector.
Then my wish came true: the 1st of July 1978, Environnement S.A was born, to develop automatic atmospheric pollution measurement instruments, for a better understanding of the level it had reached in large urban areas, and its effects on public health.”
