Environmental Monitoring

SPECTRO is a recognised provider of environmental services with the highest quality. It is a recognised lab and consultancy organisation from ministry of environment and forests and various state pollution control boards. It offers specialized services for all components of environmental concerns.

We provide full service environmental consulting and testing services to municipal, industrial, household and private concerns. Our team of professional engineers, analysts and specially trained technical personnel, has the experience and knowledge to address all environmental issues in an uncomplicated, competent and professional manner.

Air Monitoring

There are several types of Air pollution and well-known effects of pollution, which are commonly discussed are smog, acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and "holes" in the ozone layer. all these conditions have serious implications for our health and well being as well as for the whole environment.

Spectro not only take up the monitoring of ambient air in normal urban conditions but also takes the challenges of conducting these assignments in adverse condition of Himalayan ranges and extremely rural areas of different part of the country.

Types and significance of Ambient Air Pollutants

  • Particulates (SPM & RPM)
  • Metals lead, mercury, arsenic etc
  • Sulphur dioxide, Nitrogen oxides, Carbon Monoxide, Ammonia, and Ozone
  • Methane & Benzene
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
  • 1,3-Butadiene from vehicle exhausts.

Carbon monoxide is the product of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels.

Lead was used as a petrol additive, however with the phasing out of this fuel in 2000, ambient concentrations have now dropped significantly.

Nitrogen dioxide is formed whenever fossil fuels are burnt in air. The main source is from motor vehicle exhausts.

Ozone in the upper atmosphere is essential to protect the earth from harmful ultraviolet light. However at high levels near the ground this gas can irritate the airways of the lungs. It is formed as a secondary pollutant i.e. by the reaction of other pollutants with each other.

Sulphur dioxide is mainly produced during the burning of coal and oil.

Particles or PM10 are small airborne particles that can penetrate deep into the lung. They come from many sources including sea salt, wind blown soil, combustion processes and droplet formation in the atmosphere.

Benzene is a hydrocarbon that comes almost entirely from vehicle exhausts.

Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air poses many challenges to the health of the people not only in urban, industrial and rural but in office environment too. Indoor air pollutants slowly creeps but bring into significant health hazard and damaging the environment at par with outdoor air pollutants. When most people think of air pollution, they think about ambient or outdoor air pollution only. Smoke stacks spouting dark gray clouds of toxic smoke into the atmosphere or choking exhaust from auto rickshaws, scooters and buses. These sources of air pollution are most visible to people in cities.

Spectro has been doing indoor air monitoring and analysis for last three years and serving the clients in embassies, call centres, hospitals and pharma manufacturing industries. we are equipped with most modern instruments like the latest indoor air samplers and also the laser based air particle counter. we can offer complete clean room validation studies with this one CFM particle counter.

Water Pollution

When toxic substances enter lakes, streams, rivers, oceans, and other water bodies, they get dissolved or lie suspended in water or get deposited on the bed. This results in the pollution of water whereby the quality of the water deteriorates, affecting aquatic ecosystems. Pollutants can also seep down and affect the groundwater deposits.

Spectro has a full range of sampling and testing services for Potable, Municipal Sewage, Industrial Wastewater, Surface and Ground water testing solutions as per IS, APHA, BIS and WHO specifications.

Soil Pollution

The introduction of substances, biological organisms, or solid wastes the soil, results in a change of the soil quality, which is likely to affect the normal use of the soil or endangering public health and the living environment, therefore it is necessary to consider it as a determinant to the environmental quality.

Spectro offers a complete testing solution for Agricultural and Non-Agricultural Land use soil samples across the season and types and special services for EIA studies.

Stack Monitoring

Stack is the major point source of air pollution. It includes large process stacks, Boiler stacks, Industrial stacks and Generator stacks. As it disperse the potential pollutants to the atmosphere on the basis of dilution but transboundry treaties compel the users to control the emission upto a certain level.

Spectro has the all the facility and experience for stack monitoring and analysis including portable toxic gas analysers and stack kits.

Noise Pollution

Noise is among the most pervasive pollutants today. Noise from road traffic, jet planes, jet skis, garbage trucks, construction equipment, manufacturing processes, lawn mowers, leaf blowers, and boom boxes, to name a few, are among the audible litter that are routinely broadcast into the air.

Spectro’s concern lies with the requirement of monitoring and generation of data regarding noise and it provide full range including Leq, Lmin., Lmax., L10, L90, L50, Lday, Lnight, Ldn.

Spectro not only monitor the noise level at different work places with the latest data logging type sound level meters but can also take up consultancy in devising solutions for minimising this.
