TNO is an internationally recognised specialist in the study of harmful components in the environment. Our well-equipped laboraties enable us to determine the precise composition and amounts of substances (e.g. dioxins, particulates, pesticides, PAHs and asbestos) in the air and in water, soil, blood serum and consumer products. We develop new sampling and analysis methods for studying complex questions about the effects of harmful substances.
In the field of AEC we offer a wide range of innovative analysis methods. We develop methods for substances that are new to the environment, and we optimise existing methods so that we can carry out this research more efficiently.
We carry out damage assessments in special situations, for example: identifying the causes of problems in entire production processes. We mainly carry out non-standard complex analyses in difficult matrices. TNO uses sophisticated analysis techniques and has a number of unique facilities.
We use the following analysis methods and equipment:
