ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT - EIAFederal and local legislation requires a formal assessment of the possible positive or negative impacts that a proposed development or project may have on the environment prior to commencing the project. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a comprehensive study that identifies a comprehensive set of parameters including biodiversity, air, noise and water pollution, geotechnical risks, public safety, traffic and hazardous substance issues etc. and discloses possible positive or negative impact that a proposed project may have on the environment. An EIA can result in:
- Better environmental planning and project design
- Minimization of risks and impacts on the environment
- Avoid associated costs of remedial action or compensation for damage
- Ensure compliance with environmental standards and regulations
- Reduce time and costs associated with approvals of development applications.
- Basic Assessments
- Screening and Scoping Studies
- Socio-economic Surveys
- Environmental Impact Assessment
- Environmental Site Assessments
- Baseline Environmental Studies
- Environment Health & Safety Audits
- EMS Audits & Compliance Audits
- Project Management
- Environmental Reviews

Air Quality and Noise Management
Air Emission Testing
Air emission testing remains necessary while performing any study related to air pollution and to find out prevention techniques. Our Air Quality team partners are recognized leaders in conducting Ambient monitoring, Stack (Testing and Performance) Analysis and Fugitive Measurements.
EMC Pakistan (Pvt) Limited has expertise for providing Industrial Solutions including Industrial Air Emissions and Effluent Testing, Emissions and Acoustic Pollution Abatement in Industries, Indoor Air Quality.
Air Dispersion Modeling
Air dispersion modeling is carried out keeping in view the requirements of certain projects. The dispersion models are then used to estimate or to predict the downwind concentration of air pollutants or toxins emitted from sources such as industrial plants, vehicular traffic or accidental chemical releases.
At EMC Pakistan (Pvt) Limited, air quality modeling analysis employs USEPA Regulatory Model “AERMOD”. AERMOD is a graphic user interface for the ISCST3 USEPA air dispersion model. The ISCST3 (Industrial Source Complex – Short Term version 3) dispersion model is a steady-state Gaussian plume model which can be used to assess air pollutant concentrations and/or deposition fluxes from a wide variety of sources associated with an industrial source complex.
Noise Monitoring and Mapping
Noise Monitoring designed to observe noise levels at a location caused by vibrating sources and ascertains whether these noise levels are compliant with the noise level standards set by the environmental regulatory authority.
In the environmental noise control practice, noise mapping is a powerful tool by its capability to show noise situation of large areas on a single diagram.
WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITIES ON TURN KEY BASIS
EMC has expertise of installing Waste Water Treatment Plants by selecting technologies that are most efficient and cost effective. EMC specially engage in sewage and industrial wastewater treatments, which include, but not limited to, design, construction, operation and management of treatment facilities.
WASTEWATER ANALYSIS/ FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR TREATMENT FACILITIES
EMC conducts wastewater sampling and analysis to identify the strength of wastewater in stream. On the basis of such feasibility studies EMC submits proposals for wastewater treatment design to the clients. It helps to establish real time data and to consider all aspects in treatment design. EMC’s main areas of treatment are industrial units and municipal wastewater treatment facilities.
DESIGNING OF COMPLETE WASTE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
EMC has expertise in analyzing and designing complete waste management system of an organization. Our main emphasize is on Reuse – Recycle of the product. EMC not only provide guidance in managing the waste but also prepares procedures and provide trainings.
MANAGEMENT OF HAZARDOUS & NON HAZARDOUS WASTES
EMC can also handle hazardous waste and suggest the cost effective way of disposing it. We also stress on three R’s i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle while suggesting any solution related to hazardous waste management. We also provide services for collection, transportation and disposal of waste.
RESEARCH FOR REUSE – RECYCLING OF WASTE
We put emphasize on research and always conduct tests on the waste to ascertain their consistency. We have already provided many such solutions to our clients who are using their hazardous waste after recycling it at very nominal charges. e.g. Reusing of 1-1-1- Tricholoroethlene (TCE) used for degreasing after recycling, reusing the waste oil sludge as fuel in Cement Industry etc.
TEAM OF WASTE MANAGEMENT
A team of well qualified and experienced professionals, the core of Waste Management, provides well thought of solutions keeping in view the different dimensions of waste management and their impacts on each component of the environment. Masters and PhD’s are there in our team who has not only technical knowledge of work but has working capability as well.
Environmental Health and Safety Trainings
EMC Pakistan (Pvt) Limited is of the pioneer companies in Environmental, Health & Safety Training Providers. EMC Consultants, Team of EHS Experts can provide you the best possible trainings in EHS. We can customize the training courses according to the needs of our clients.
Socio-economic survey is based on the statistical approach such as housing, existing population, rate of population growth, population forecasting & modeling. Health, education, provision of infrastructures in the communities & the overall social improve mental/development plan is designed. In the section of Economic survey, incomes of the people, income sources & cost & benefit analysis of the said projects. Census of households and individuals located within the project has to be undertaken to register and document the status of potentially affected population within the project impact area. It will provide a demographic overview of the population served by the Resettlement Plan (RP) and profiles of household assets and main sources of livelihood. It will cover 100% of the potentially affected population within the project impact area.
