Environmental Geochemistry

How do we do it

R&D Projects under Contract

These projects started from the need of companies to solve environmental problems, which do not have an available supply on the market or a proper technological development. The results of the innovation projects are generally technologies or management tools, which improve the processes and/or reduce the negative externalities generated during the entire production chain, thereby improving the environmental performance of the company.

Specialized Technological Services

Our services are not recurrently in the national market. They require highly specialized human capital on specific topics and they usually demand groups of national and foreign specialists.

Projects of Public Interest

They are medium and long term projects and/or programs, which address needs and environmental challenges that improve or accelerate the development of the country or a particular region through the reduction of gaps, the creation of conditions for the productive development, the strengthening of capabilities, the improvement of the public - private coordination, among others.
