Environmental Engineering Laboratory

Organization profile

organization profile

Civil engineering and the environment are closely related, due to the broad spectrum of action fronts of professionals in this area. Therefore, the commitment of future civil engineers with the environment is more than an imperative need.

In this context, the Environmental Engineering Laboratory seeks to support research in sustainable engineering, approached from academic works, teaching projects and scientific research works, which respond to productive and social challenges, always respecting good practices. The Laboratory also provides specialized technical support to the industry.

The Laboratory performs several types of tests, such as the following:

Drinking water quality
Toxic waste
Determination of heavy metals

Soils and rocks
Soil characterization
Surface distribution maps
Isotopic relationships
Rock, mineral and sediment characterization
Contaminant speciation

Air pollutant estimation

Analysis of solid and liquid fuels
Elemental analysis of combustion products
Control of impurities in fuels

Porous solids
True density
Porosity and pore size determination
Surface area
Physisorption tests
Chemisorption tests

The laboratory meets the requirements of national and international standards.
