The department is involved in applied research activities and services in the field of environmental quality control and monitoring, respectively of the environmental components water, air, soil, sediments and waste.

The activity carried out within the department aims at the following directions:

  • research activities and monitoring of environmental parameters to solve specific problems arising in the technological processes carried out by economic agents;
  • the development and implementation of new effective methods/methodologies for evaluating the quality of the environment, reducing the level of pollution in order to improve the health of the population;
  • assessment of the quality of the environmental components water, air, soil within research projects with national / international funding or through documentation requested from economic agents by the environmental authorities.

Services in the field of environmental pollution assessment and control:

  • Controlling the pollution of environmental components water, soil, sediments, sludge, waste by identifying pollutants, establishing sampling points/frequency, performing sampling and specific physical-chemical analyses;
  • Monitoring the quality of environmental components water (drinking water, mineral, groundwater, surface, wastewater, for irrigation, for concrete, for swimming pools), soil, sludge, sediments according to the requirements imposed by the inforce legislation or by the local environmental authorities;
  • Carrying out leaching tests for waste and characterizing the leachates, in order to establish the type of deposit where these wastes can be accepted for storage - according to Order. MMGA no. 95/2005;
  • Analytical investigations to establish the contaminant removal rates of municipal wastewater treatment plants (influent/effluent, sludge, physical-chemical parameters);
  • Consultancy for testing laboratories in order to obtain accreditation according to the requirements of the SR EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 standard;
  • Training of the personnel from the testing laboratories regarding the Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC), how to apply new analytical methods and techniques in current laboratory practice, as well as the requirements of the SR EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 standard.
