Building owners can obtain LEED points and achieve Silver, Gold and Platinum Certification for New Construction (NC) or Existing Buildings (EB). Call us for LEED 3.2 Pre-occupancy Certification Air Quality Testing. We are members of the USGBC. Manufacturers, suppliers and recyclers also need to address the requirements of product stewardship. Our decades of experience in chemistry and biology radiation can be applied to the life cycle of a product far beyond the intended use. This includes recycling, disposal, decomposition, contamination and misuse. We can also develop Safety Data Sheets (SDS). This includes such elements as carbon footprint, worker exposure, transport, water impact, air impact, odors, side reactions, risk assessment, packaging and material substitution that have less environmental / energy impact.
