Environmental Laboratory

NEW AGE Environmental Laboratory offers off-site testing services for dry cleaners, golf courses, schools, developers, food processing plants, large oil companies, and more. Whether you need help with spill investigation, wastewater investigation, or regulatory compliance, we are here to assist you.
Our fixed environmental laboratory provides environmental analytical testing services, including soil analysis, sediment, water, leachates, dust, and air. We offer analytical services for routine, trace, and ultra-trace organics (volatiles, semi-volatiles, pesticides, PCBs, herbicides) and metals. We use internationally recognized procedures such as those published by the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for all our analysis methods.

Waste Water

Testing wastewater is a critical component of analyzing water to ensure that harmful contaminants don't end up in our drinking and irrigation water. NEW AGE Environmental Laboratories is a leading expert in this field. They test a vast range of harmful materials that can help ensure that waste water is safe to return to our municipal and agricultural water supplies. To break down everything that's in your wastewater, NAL chemists use gas chromatography (GC) and GC/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) for quantifying volatile organic compounds (VOCs), polynuclear aromatics (PNAs), base neutral acid compounds (BNAs), gas and diesel range organics (GRO and DRO), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), explosives, and pesticides. Our chemists use ICP/OES and Cold Vapor Mercury Analysis System instrumentation when analyzing metals.

Analyses

Testing for various metals in wastewater is essential for both environmental protection and food safety. Metals can enter wastewater from industrial processes, agricultural runoff, and domestic sources, posing risks to aquatic ecosystems and human health. Monitoring metal concentrations helps ensure compliance with environmental regulations, preventing contamination of water bodies and potential harm to aquatic life. Additionally, metal-contaminated wastewater can impact food safety if used for irrigation or if it enters food production systems, highlighting the importance of thorough testing to safeguard both the environment and the food supply chain.
