Environmental problems arise as a result of multiple interacting factors. Our model of life involves ever increasing and unsustainable spending of both natural and energy resources. This ever-growing consumption puts strains on the environment, with emissions and wastes that pollute the earth.

The management of air pollution seeks the elimination, or reduction to acceptable levels, of those agents (gases, particulate matter, physical elements and to some extent biological agents) whose presence in the atmosphere can cause adverse health effects to people or their welfare, detrimental effects to plant and animal life, damage to materials of economic value to society, and damage to the environment through water, air, waste, etc. LABAQUA offers, with its network of laboratories and analytical capacity, a comprehensive global solution by analysis in water, air, soil and waste.

We offer a service of Environmental Management (technical audits, sampling planning, environmental diagnosis, analytics, etc). Quality, Speed and Service are our hallmarks.
