We work from the perspective of industry,
targeting efficient and effective process operation
– a strategic approach
with a strong focus on delivering higher profitability
Our environmental engineering services contribute directly to performance improvement.
In our projects, we have no fear of complexity
We blend and integrate skills in environmental, chemical and process engineering, physics, geology and hydrogeology, chemistry, biology and GIS/CAD expertise.
We develop, deploy, operate and provide technical assistance to the following projects:
Environmental monitoring plans (air, water, emission control)
Fire detection and extinguishing systems
Toxic gas and flammable explosive detection systems
Characterisation of contaminated sites and site-specific risk analysis
We design and install
Hydraulic barriers for pollution control
Remediation projects (soils and groundwater)
Waste treatment technologies
We manage the IEA (Integrated Environmental Authorisation), EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment), SEA and EMAS paperwork for plant authorisation
We support our clients in preparing the application for the Integrated Environmental Authorisation (IEA). We also assist in the management of authorisations and in dealings with the competent authorities and control agencies.
We have handled, among others, the IEA authorisation process for the Saras Group’s Sarlux refinery, the first refinery in Italy to have obtained this authorisation.
The Integrated Environmental Authorisation (IEA), which authorises operation of a plant, is governed by European legislation on integrated pollution prevention and reduction. The authorisation sets out all the requirements and emission limits to be met by the industrial facility.
The key aim of the Directive is to make a comparative assessment of the various environmental compartments and to unify authorisation procedures, to prevent separate approaches to the control of air, water and soil emissions from encouraging the transfer of pollution from one environmental compartment to another, focusing instead on protecting the environment as a whole.
We support our clients in preparing the technical documentation for the Environmental Impact Studies (EIS) required for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedure. We also assist in authorisation management and in dealings with the competent authorities and control agencies.
Our studies and consultancies cover:
- Characterisation of contaminated sites and environmental modelling (simulations, scenarios and forecasts)
- Risk analysis
- Territorial information systems and management of complex environmental models up to the creation of Decision Support Systems (DSS) for environmental and land use planning
- Design of environmental management systems
- Design and optimisation of environmental control systems and environmental monitoring plans in complex areas and industrial sites
- Identification of the Best Available Techniques (BAT) to improve environmental performance, optimise existing processes and boost energy efficiency
- Development of information systems for managing environmental monitoring data and of commercial environmental modelling software, to be integrated with each other and with GIS, CAD and Web applications.
We offer complete studies, technology problem solving, analysis of process critical points and solutions and operating management.
The overarching aim of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is to promote sustainable local development and a careful approach to planning that takes a long-term view. The SEA procedure applies specifically to local development plans and programmes, and is an integral part of their adoption and approval process.
We support our clients in preparing the technical documentation required for EMAS registration and in liaising with the competent authorities and control agencies.
EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) is a voluntary EU scheme addressed to companies and public bodies, to help them assess and improve their environmental performance and to offer stakeholders and the public information on their environmental management.
Organisations that join the EMAS scheme must also prepare and publish an Environmental Declaration, which serves both as an environmental performance report and a policy document.
