Certech’s approval by the Walloon Region in the context of air quality and atmospheric pollution has been renewed for a period of 5 years. This covers sampling, analysis, testing and research as well as measurement by dynamic olfactometry and odour detection threshold with human assessors.
Certech supports companies in the context of their regulatory requirements and the evaluation of treatment solutions. The parameters of interest, sampling techniques and analyses are discussed with each customer, in compliance with the specifications. We also develop specific methods when required. Certech’s expertise covers a wide range of parameters and chemical pollutants, with the unusual feature of combining skills in odour analysis (including chemical identification of the molecules responsible for the nuisance).
Our team works directly on industrial sites to carry out the continuous monitoring of the different parameters of interest ((total VOCs, NMVOCs, combustion gases, …). We also perform spot sampling campaigns (specific VOCs, dust, odours, …) which will then be analysed by our laboratory. In addition to these diagnoses, we can also model the atmospheric dispersion of a pollutant or support our customers to develop a plan to reduce their emissions, acting as an independent expert between industry, authorities and local residents.
Certech is active in the field of VOCs and odors for 40+ years and is a reference player in Belgium and in the world thanks to its position as active member in the standardization committees on air quality (CEN / TC264, ISO / TC146 / SC6, CEN / TC137, CEN / TC351, AFNOR B44, CEN / TC386).
