Water, waste and environment
A rising incidence of respiratory illnesses prompted the city governments of
Tehran and Arak, southwest of the capital, to institute air pollution control programs.
These programs aim to reduce gradually the amount of harmful chemicals released
into the atmosphere.
Much of Iran’s territory suffers from overgrazing, desertification and/or deforestation.
Industrial and urban wastewater runoff has contaminated rivers and coastal waters
and threatened drinking water supplies.
RMRC environmental laboratory is to deliver fit-for-purpose environmental support
to the industry, providing assessments of the environmental fate and effects of
new and existing products and intermediates.
The laboratory can also offer environmental support for the manufacturing processes
that produce those products.
Throughout its history the laboratory has worked for external clients, who have
included a wide range of companies from within the industry. Because of that wide
customer base the laboratory has strict processes and procedures in place to ensure
RMRC's range of environmental services is diverse and includes analyses using state-of-the-art
equipment and accredited and certified methodologies.
Environmental analytical services are offered in a wide variety of substances including
drinking water, groundwater, surface and waste water, soil, sediments, solid waste,
