These business activities have been started with the need of investigation of hazardous and contaminated sites in the early 1990th. Large-scale ecological projects were carried out in and around the chemical and mining industry in central Germany (e.g. Hyzet Zeitz, Böhlen, Leuna etc.). Due to own accredited laboratory and sampling equipment was able to deliver all services from one source.
Today most assessments (Environmental Site Assessments [ESA] or “environmental due diligence”) starts with a site investigation (so called Phase I – accord. ASTM E1527). INNO-CON carries out ESA Phase I in almost all central and east European countries.
In case of identified suspicion of a contamination, a Phase II (accord. ASTM E1903) is necessary. INNO-CON and its subcontractors ensure a certified quality management system according to ISO 9001. Our certification covers also the supervision of remediation works.
Together with special certified partners we were several time selected for European and German projects for knowledge transfer to south-east European countries, e.g. for development and qualification of laboratory capacities, improvement of local anti-air pollution schemes.
Sampling of ground water
The sampling of ground water and other environmental media is carried out using the Schmidt environmental technology.Particular competences were developed in the area of ground water sampling within montan hydrological monitoring. The company has many specially equipped vehicles of sampling, different pumps, field measuring devices, cool boxes for storage and transport of samples, and facilities for the cleaning and decontamination of equipment.
