Department of Chemical Technologies and Environmental Protection

The Department employs highly qualified experts and experienced analysts.

It operates a well-equipped Laboratory that is involved in testing salts, brines, and geological samples. Our Laboratory has been accredited by the Chief Pharmaceutical Inspectorate in Poland to carry out tests of pharmaceutical articles and active substance, as regards their physical and chemical parameters (Permit No. WTC/0006_02_01/164). Our Laboratory observes the procedures imposed by the Polish Ministry of State Treasury and follows the ISO Standards.

We fulfil the needs of our customers and participate in their technological projects belonging to various industries. Our services are regularly expanded to match the market requirements. Our team is ready to face the challenges of testing chemical and other industrial technologies. We were involved in a number of innovative projects that often led to obtaining patents in Poland and abroad.

  • Research and methodology

    • Substance determination standards are frequently updated.
    • The pricing of each determination includes the process of sample preparation (depending on the number and frequency of orders).
    • We perform certified tests for pharmaceutical products.
    • We can collect samples at the customer’s premises or sites.
