We carry out environmental surveys in both outdoor and indoor environments, including sampling, analysis, and consultancy. We are accredited for measurements of emissions to air, and determination of a variety of emission parameters and components. We also perform environmental surveys of buildings, indoor climate and occupational hygiene.
Emissions to air
SINTEF Norlab performs accredited measurements and sampling of emissions to air from all types of land-based industry throughout all of Norway. We represent an independent third party that monitors and confirms results for industrial enterprises.
Emissions to air are subject to increasingly stringent requirements from the authorities. Emission permits set limits for the pollutants that may be discharged. The results are summarised in concise reports in which emissions may be compared to the requirements of the emission permits.
SINTEF Norlab offers accredited services within a broad range of emission measurements and sampling. Our staff have extensive experience from industry and the public sector.
We offer sampling, measurement, and analysis of the following compounds:
- flue gas volume and temperature
