Domaines d’analyses

ECOL laboratories perform measurements and analysis related to the research of different contaminants in soils, water and wastewater, with a particular emphasis on micropollutants as well as fundamental analysis which are important to assess water quality.

Another important part of the lab’s activities is the development of new analytical methods aiming at improving the precision and the efficiency of micropollutants results.

ECOL’s lab technicians participate in inter-laboratories cross-validation analysis to ensure the quality and accuracy of the results and also to keep an up-to-date know-how in terms of analytical measurements.
