QACS laboratories have many years of experience in the field of environmental analyses. In their many years of operation, the laboratories have cooperated with many large companies in matters of environmental management. Environment lab testing services vary based on client and industry needs. These are usually needs arising from environmental conditions or industry quality systems and include classic analyzes or even special tests.
Industrial, Water & Waste
QACS laboratories provide environmental analysis services covering basic solid and liquid waste analyses, such as biological treatment monitoring (liquid waste analyses) or characterization of solid waste or by-products (Directive 2003/33/EC). In addition, more complex analyzes are supported, such as PCDD/F, PCBs, PAH, TPH, VOCs, BTEX, etc.
Our philosophy is to work closely with customers and deliver even to special tests that may be required based on their activity. An example of such a special test is Flammability A12 (in contact with water) based on Regulation (EC) 440/2008, which is of interest to aluminum industries, foundries, etc. and which is included in the scope of accreditation of laboratories. The number of environmental analyzes is extensive. An indicative list of environmental analyzes is provided and we are at your disposal for any specialized need.
