UN Certification Service in India | Biodegradability Test for Plastics

Laboratory Services

Enviro Remediation & Research Laboratory ( ERRL) is established to carry out interdisciplinary scientific analysis in the field of environment. We have qualified and experienced scientist team and a well-equipped environmental laboratory with sophisticated instruments for carrying out analysis of parameters covering all fields of environment i.e. Water and wastewater analysis, air analysis, soil analysis, plastic biodegradation, toxicological, microbiological analysis. We conduct the analysis as per standard methods (ISO, APHA, MoEF, NACE, ASTM etc.). Enviro Remedation & Research Laboratory also has dedicated R & D section to conduct new techniques and development.
