Environmental Monitoring / Mapping
Environmental monitoring is a tool and technique employed to identify, analyze, and establish parameters for environmental conditions to assess quantifiably the impacts from various activities on the environment.
Our environmental monitoring services are based on different test and assessment techniques, which help in providing key information about the environment and possible risk levels.
Effluent monitoring deals with assessment of liquid and gaseous effluents to determine and quantify contaminants and process-stream characteristics, in relation to exposures to members of the public, and demonstrate compliance with applicable standards. It includes but limited to air quality and noise exposure measurements, sludge and wastewater quality assessment etc.
Ozone is a harmful air pollutant because of its effects on human health and the environment, and it is the main component of smog.
It is formed from sunlight-driven chemical reactions involving carbon monoxide (CO), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), which arise from motor vehicle exhausts, industrial emissions, gasoline vapors, chemical solvents as well as natural biogenic sources and a broad range of human activities.
Ozone monitoring is carried out to:
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas produced by burning gasoline, wood, propane, charcoal or other fuel. Improperly ventilated appliances and engines, particularly in a tightly sealed or enclosed space, may allow carbon monoxide to accumulate to dangerous levels. It is therefore important to monitor the level of exposure so as to prevent life-threatening health conditions such as cardiac complications, brain damage and even death.
Carbon dioxide is one of the greatest variables affecting indoor environmental quality, a good indication of the general level of the other pollutants within buildings since occupants of either a living and/or working area produce it.
Exposure to elevated carbon dioxide levels can lead to tiredness, lack of concentration and contribute to the symptoms of Sick Building Syndrome such as headaches, eye, nose, and throat irritation, itchy skin, and nausea. CO₂ monitoring is, therefore, an intrinsic part of indoor environmental quality strategies.
Sound pressure level is measured to determine noise exposures for occupational health and safety purposes. It helps identify work locations where there are noise problems, employees who may be exposed to noise levels that can cause hearing loss, and where additional noise measurements need to be made.
