Each production activity involves the production of solid and liquid waste that must be classified. Mérieux NutriSciences provides analyses and complete assistance for waste management programs and deals in particular with:
- supporting producers in waste characterization
- classifying waste according to local and international laws, thus defining its characteristics and the hazard class in the case of hazardous waste
- carrying out preliminary analyzes to define the final destination of waste (disposal or recovery)
- carrying out product analyzes on heterogeneous urban or industrial waste, according to official ANPA methods or UNI EN standards specific for material and aimed at assessing the suitability of the waste to be recycled.

Water is a fundamental element for the life of organisms and for all human activities. Current legislation specifies the chemical, physical and biological characteristics to abide by according to the final purpose of water: Mérieux NutriSciences performs water analysis to ensure the quality of surface, underground and waste water in full compliance with global standards.
The analyses performed on soils play a role of utmost importance in environmental investigations targeted to the characterization of sites: Mérieux NutriSciences samples and analyses both contaminated sites to verify their contamination, and non-contaminated areas, to check the possibility to re-use the soil obtained from excavations.
All manufacturing processes produce liquid and solid waste that must be correctly managed. Mérieux NutriSciences provides a full range of testing to support environmentally responsible waste management programs: waste characterization and classification, chemical and product analyses, ADR (Accord Dangereuses Routes) consultancy.
