Cartoon Ecotoxicologische analyse

In general, risk analysis is based on the mere presence of contaminants found in soil and water samples. 

Regardless of the concentrations of contaminants (mere presence), bioavailability is an indicator of potential risk. This ecotoxicological analysis will provide greater clarity. Direct measurement is done by observing micro organisms in contact with the contaminant sample. If these micro-organisms thrive, it represents a healthy environment, whereas in a heavily contaminated environment the micro-organisms will wither. The speed with which the micro-organisms perish indicates the level of risk.

The first phase consists of working with you in deciding which information is necessary in regards to your needs and how we can offer the best results in a cost effective manner. We’ll then determine which approach would offer the best results in your particular case.

On the basis of a more detailed site investigation, we can refine the chosen approach. We can then implement the selected strategy.

After completing our work, we thoroughly evaluate the results. If necessary we will then perform additional research to either confirm or disprove the results.
