American Analytical is working with a developer and an environmental consultant group in College Point on a Brownfields project.
A Brownfields site is any land in the United States that has been contaminated by hazardous waste and identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a candidate for cleanup because it poses a risk to human health and/or the environment. Real property, expansion, or reuse of land may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance pollutant, or contaminant.
Typically they are abandoned or partially vacant industrial and commercial properties. Chemicals and waste products may have contaminated such facilities because they were handled improperly.
American Analytical is providing analytical services to determine hot spot areas, confirm remedial activities, and provide waste characterization.
