To the service

Environmental measurements

We conduct qualified and dependable environmental measurements. As an officially approved independent measuring department we are a notified body in accordance with §§ 29b of the BlmSchG (Federal Pollution Control Act), the 13th and 17th BlmSchV (Ordinances on the implementation of the Federal Immission Control Act) and the TA Luft (Technical Instructions on Air Quality Control). Our environmental measuring department is also accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. Our emission measurements cover the required scope of exhaust gas parameters to be measured in accordance with the 17th and 13th BImSchV (Ordinances on the implementation of the Federal Immission Control Act) and the TA Luft (Technical Instructions on Air Quality Control). In addition, our specialists are in a position to determine a broad range of special parameters. We provide you with comprehensive consultation and incorporate the officially required environmental measurements into a valid and efficient emission measurement programme.

To the service

Environmental analysis

The manufacture and use of construction products should have as little impact as possible on the environment. The wide range of analytical services we offer can help to reliably ensure that this is the case: For example, we regularly perform emission measurements and have the samples taken examined with regard to all the relevant parameters at our high-performance accredited laboratories and associated laboratories. We can also offer you comprehensive consultation on full-scale operational trials for the purpose of optimising plants or emission reduction systems.

To the service

Life cycle assessment and sustainability assessment

Certification systems such as DGNB, LEED or BREEAM are increasingly being used to assess the sustainability of new buildings. The sustainability concept commonly employed is based on a three-pillar model, made up of economy, ecology and social aspects. Life cycle assessment of building materials provides important input data for such sustainability assessments. We develop life cycle assessments for cement and cement-bound building materials as a basis for environmental product declarations (EPD).

To the service

Process technology

Our broad range of services encompasses all types of testing in the field of thermal and mechanical process technology, as well as technical reviews and benchmarking, digital process support and comprehensive maintenance work. We optimise your processes, enhance the energy efficiency of your installations, perform maintenance work and offer support for your digitisation projects.
