Section "Environment" carries out analyses and tests on gaseous emissions from ceramics industries, as well as on waste-waters, waste materials and solid residues.

Section "Environment" manages the pollution control laboratory, equipped with two mobile laboratories for sampling pollutants and carries out:

  • sampling and analyses of pollutant emissions
  • air quality and workroom environment quality assessment
  • concentration and release of pollutants in the materials

The results are used with the following aims:

  • characterization of gaseous emissions in compliance with the existing laws and regulations
  • testing and inspection of air and water purification systems
  • assessment of exposure levels to chemical and physical agents in the work place
  • assessment of safety conditions: a) in the use of ceramic products destined to be in contact with food; b) in the disposal of wastes, sludges, inertized toxic and special waste.
