Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals

This is a diverse manufacturing sector, including speciality and fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, petrochemicals as well as commodity chemicals. Geosyntec provides the chemical/pharmaceutical sector with technical services for strategic management and resolution of sometimes highly complex environmental issues.

We don't just apply a "standard, one-size-fits-all" solution; rather, we develop site-specific, focused, and where necessary innovative approaches to environmental compliance, site assessment and remediation, and environmental liability management. Whether the site is an operating facility, a retained liability, or potential property rationalization, transfer and/or redevelopment candidate, we develop creative, cost-effective programmes that take full advantage of the latest proven technologies and regulatory flexibility to meet the client's objectives and minimize long term risk.

Our practitioners are highly experienced in soil and groundwater investigation and remediation of a wide range of chemicals of potential concern, including chlorinated and other solvents, petroleum hydrocarbons, oxygenates, heavy metals and metalloids. For example, Geosyntec is an industry leader in remediating chlorinated solvent impacts to groundwater using advanced in situ bioremediation techniques developed in-house. We also offer significant expertise in evaluation of the vapor intrusion pathway, a critical exposure pathway that recently has received heightened regulatory attention.

Geosyntec works regularly with the environmental regulations facing the industry. With our "hands-on" understanding of compliance issues, coupled with our technical expertise, we can optimize regulatory negotiations to expedite remediation and reach the desired end point. Our practitioners also design solutions that optimize redevelopment opportunities, and we are often retained to address and manage complex challenges associated with multi-party or high profile sites.
