Tecnoambiente has developed extensive expertise in environmental studies and projects, and has the human and material technical capacity to fulfill all the areas related to environmental consulting: fieldwork, data analysis and cabinet work. The main services we offer are:
Water Framework Directive (WFD)
Tecnoambiente offers advisory services and technical assistance in all aspects considered in the WFD. We either carry out these services through our own team or through an extensive network of external collaborators.
- Study of surface water quality through the sampling of aquatic bioindicators and determination of biological indexes according to the WFD:
- Benthic Macroinvertebrates (IBMWP, IASPT, IMMI-T, METI, etc.)
- Phytobenthos or diatoms and phytoplankton (IPS, IBD, CEE, etc.)
- Aquatic vegetation or macrophytes (IVAM, IM, IBMR etc.)
- Fish (IBICAT, EFI +, etc.).
- Use of hydromorphological indicators (QBR, IHF, etc.)
- Analysis of physico-chemical indicators
- Determination of the ecological status / potential of surface water bodies according to the WFD criteria.
One of the major problems that companies face today is the treatment and management of their waste, in addition to the associated costs. Tecnoambiente proposes solutions oriented towards minimization, reuse and valorization, all of which falls in line with the principles and objectives of circular economy. We provide sustainable solutions based on the Best Available Techniques (BAT) while pursuing cost savings in the industry.
- Elaboration of Waste Maps to acquire deep knowledge on the types of waste that are produced during the industrial activity.
- Identification of improvement opportunities in waste management that lead to optimization of both costs and management itself.
- Elaboration of methodologies for the continuous improvement in the process of identification, assessment and execution of such opportunities.
Tecnoambiente has extensive experience in all areas regarding environmental studies - fieldwork (diagnosis, sampling), laboratory work (analysis, biological determinations), calculations, expression of results and writing reports. Such studies include:
- Inventories of Fauna and Flora
- Habitats Cartography
- Census and State of Fish Populations
- Determination of Ecological Flows
- Limnological Studies in Lakes, Wetlands and Reservoirs, including Hydraulic, Hydrological and Environmental Recovery aspects
- Environmental Statistical Analysis
- Topographic, Thermographic and Spectrophotometric data collection using drones
