Marine Sediment Testing

ESG provides comprehensive marine monitoring support to a wide range of clients, helping to ensure their engineering projects have minimal impact on the environment.

ESG has established a long standing reputation for technical expertise in marine sediment testing. The company’s robust extraction and analytical procedures have been developed specifically for complex marine samples.

Quality Assurance

In addition to UKAS accreditation, ESG has over a decade of proven performance in the Quality Assurance for Marine Environmental Monitoring (QUASIMEME) scheme. These qualifications provide assurance of the technical competence of ESG’s testing laboratory to undertake a comprehensive array of analyses.

ESG’s Environmental Chemistry team is able to carry out analysis for a number of pollutants, including Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs), and heavy metals (OES-SED and ICP-SED).
