Quality of coastal and marine ecosystems:


  • Evaluation of marine water and sediment quality (
  • including chemical indicators, toxic organic and inorganic matter, hydrocarbons, oils and greases, pesticides, heavy metals)
  • Biological studies to determine quantitative and qualitative concentrations of phytoplankton and chlorophyll-a
  • Sanitary studies of water and sediments (Total and faecal coliforms, faecal streptococcus and Clostridium perfringes).
  • Geo-chemical compositions of sediments (total organic matter, total organic carbon, total organic nitrogen, total phosphorous, granulometric studies)
  • Ecotoxicology tests to study the impacts of effluents on the environment
  • Studies of bio-accumulation of organic and inorganic toxic matter in marine species
  • T-90 tests for the design of marine outfall

Management and treatment of wastes


  • Characterization of domestic and industrial waste
  • Identification and characterization of oil spills from ships and coastal industries
  • Management of land-based sources of marine pollution (including industrial discharges in coastal zones, management of waste generated in ports and urban development)
  • Management of hazardous waste

Environmental management


  • Audits in the industrial sector.
  • Environmental Permits for industrial construction and restoration
