Emissions Testing

Emissions testing

Comply with legal regulations by having your emissions measured by our experts

One of the main aims of environmental protection is to suppress harmful emissions or reduce them as much as possible. Typical examples of emissions include gaseous and particulate pollutants emitted by furnaces, odor emissions and particulate emissions from waste tips. Help protect the climate and ask us to measure the emissions created by your facilities.

Our experts will test your facility – from large-scale firing plants to biogas plants, from waste incinerators to crematoria – according to national and international standards. We can also help you reduce noise pollution, measure exhaust gases and harmful emissions, and modernize your facilities.

With their extensive experience, our experts can analyze your processes and identify potential improvements. As a measurement body registered throughout Germany and internationally accredited according to ISO 17025 we are authorized to perform the legally required measurements for you.

Your facilities need testing? Ask us about our emission testing.

Do your part for the environment by testing your emissions

Our emission testing actively contributes to environmental protection. By testing your facilities, you can reduce air, ground and water pollution, protect persons from pollution, and help improve the environment.

Operators of facilities that require permits are obliged to examine the type and extent of emissions emitted by their facilities. Our measurement and testing services will enable you to comply with the legal regulations. Emission testing also enables the smooth and efficient operation of your facilities.

Have your facilities tested in line with national and international standards
