Environmental analysis

In an increasingly populated and resource-scarce world, we help our clients understand the relationships between people and the built and natural environments.

RPS provides a wide range of analysis to support consultancies, businesses and regulators to monitor for contamination of the natural and built environment. Our laboratories analyse soils, sediment, waters, wastewaters, leachates and other complex matrices down to extremely low levels of detection. This is delivered using the latest instrumentation in purpose-built facilities located in the UK and The Netherlands. RPS has an extensive network of partner laboratories worldwide. This enables samples to be received from testing across the globe, not just from our inhouse sampling teams but other commercial laboratories too.

Our laboratories operate to ISO/IEC 17025 and MCERTs standards and we hold a Plant Health licence to allow the import of soils from outside the European Union.
