Air Dispersion Modeling
Air Dispersion Modeling computes weather patterns and local topography to predict the concentration of emissions at ground level caused by an emissions source. Find out more.
Stack Emissions Testing
Find out how our stack emissions testing services help our customers to prevent exposure, reduce emissions, improve air quality and achieve regulatory compliance for the industrial installations they operate.
Find out how we help our customers to reduce life-changing physical harm such as noise-induced hearing loss or hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) caused by environmental and workplace noise and vibration exposure.
Environmental Impact Assessments
Element’s industry experts provide environmental impact assessments for air quality, noise, and vibration, which must be closely considered through the planning process.
