The attention of the public and the institutions on the impact that the building industry has on the environment and human health is increasingly urgent. Inspections performed by control bodies are increasing and the increasingly restrictive laws in force led the industry to carry out checks and monitoring of materials and products used in the building, of more sustainable materials like recycled or reused products, the lands and rocks from excavation.

The possible physical and chemical pollutants from construction activities such as dust, noise, vibrations are also important. Similarly and due to regulatory obligations, even demolitions and decommissioning activities need to be supported and authorized by chemical and physical analytical controls with particular attention to widespread pollutants such as asbestos, artificial vitreous fibers, hydrocarbons and volatile substances. Mérieux NutriSciences offers consulting services, sampling and analysis of environmental matrices resulting from bulding and demolition activities in full compliance with current environmental legislation.
