ENVIRONMENT

Respect for the environment and ensuring the most efficient use of resources are among our main concerns, and we seek to share the same vision and expertise with our partners and clients.

From the drafting of standards that aim at the protection of the environment and the energy efficiency of products, to consulting services and technical training, we have provided countless hours of expertise and know-how for over three decades.

Infrastructure assessment, both via technical inspections, non-destructive testing and third-party audits, also help to ensure that every industry can have the confidence to operate in full compliance with legal requirements and regulations.

Nowadays, environmental issues are an ever-growing concern. With the aim of building a sustainable world, IEP has developed a range of services that allow us to respond not only to legal requirements but also to provide companies with higher standards in their respect for an improved environment.

IEP, therefore, provides environmental consulting services (system implementation, environmental licensing), circular economy consulting, environmental characterization consulting (noise, gas emissions, effluents), equipment and product characterization consulting (energy label, ROHS), among others.

To carry out these services, IEP has a team of qualified technicians at its disposal, as well as the right equipment to allow it to respond effectively to its clients’ needs.

Many of the services offered are carried out by the several accredited laboratories that are part of this institute.

Over the last few decades, we have been part of major safety projects carried out in the business sector as well as in public network infrastructure.

We draft emergency plans and health and safety plans, assess industrial, technological and professional risks, and recommend self-protection measures.

We implement health and safety at work systems and carry out internal audits.

We are also responsible for the organization of external OSH services for national companies in every business sector.

Sensible energy consumption in human activities is of extreme importance since these resources are finite, extremely scarce and unequally distributed. Therefore, it is very important to provide tools to support the decision-making process, that also allows the various economic sectors to effectively manage the energy resources used in their activities.

TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY CALIBRATIONS

Tests are performed to determine the thermal profiles (stability and gradient) of a variety of equipment, such as greenhouses, thermo-regulated baths, ovens, muffles, and cold storage rooms.

Many of these tasks can be carried out on the client’s premises – in situ -, thus ensuring the lowest possible downtime.
