Services We Provide


1) Consultancy

a. Environmental Studies


Environmental Impact Assessment

  • All new developments or expansion in the old projects of sectors such as industries, thermal power projects, mining schemes etc., needs environmental Impact assessment study under the Environmental (Protection Act, 1986).
  • On basis of Terms of reference issued by the Expert Appraisal Committee an EIA study is conducted and Public Consultation is done.
  • A Final EIA report is prepared & presented to the EAC/SEAC. Based on the recommendations of EAC/SEAC the MoEF/SEIAA grants Environmental Clearance.
  • It has now been made mandatory for 29 categories of developmental activities involving investments of Rs.50crores and above

Environmental Management Plan (EMP)

  • Preparation of environmental management plan is required for formulation, implementation and monitoring of environmental protection measures during and after commissioning of projects. It indicates the details of various measures that are proposed to be taken including cost components. Cost of measures for environmental safeguards should be treated as an integral component of the project cost and environmental aspects should be taken into account at various stages of the project:
    Conceptualization: preliminary environmental assessment
    Planning: detailed studies of environmental impacts and design of safeguards
    Execution: implementation of environmental safety measures
    Operation: monitoring of effectiveness of built-in safeguards

Environmental Audit

  • Environmental audit is a general term that can reflect various types of evaluations intended to identify environmental compliance and management system implementation gaps, along with related corrective actions.
  • Industries decide to undertake environmental audits in order to obtain an independent external assessment whether the management has created efficient environmental policy and provided for acceptable environmental attitude. The most important results of the environmental audits are recommendations how a company can reduce the damaging impacts on the environment in an efficient and cost-benefit manner, and how it can in a long-term save funds by using environment friendly technology.

Baseline Studies

  • Meteorology
  • Water Quality
  • Ambient Air
  • Quality
  • Ecology
  • Geology
  • Soil
  • Socio-economic
  • Noise levels
  • Land Use


Social Impact Assessment

  • Social impact assessment (SIA) is a methodology to review the social effects of infrastructure projects and other development interventions.
  • Any developmental project will have a bearing on the living conditions and on the economic base of population in particular and the region as a whole. Similarly, the proposed activities will have its share of socio-economic influence in the study area. The study delineates the overall appraisal of society relevant attributes. The data is done through primary household survey and through the analysis of secondary data.

CRZ management studies

  • To control, minimize and protect environmental damage to sensitive coastal stretches from unplanned human interference, The Government of India, in 1991 issued a major notification “Coastal Regulation Zone rules”. It is an integrated approach to coastal zone problems and for sustainable development. The structured programme, undertakes the formation of trained manpower capable of redressing identified problems and helping to build capable institutions.

Modeling studies-air, water and noise

  • Air : Air dispersion modelling is often required for:
  • Environmental Impact Assessments, Development Applications, Compliance Assessments, Licences and Approvals, Investigation of Complaints (e.g. odour, dust),Improving Air Quality Management
  • Designing Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Networks, Determining Source Parameters (e.g. ideal stack heights, operating conditions)
  • Depending on the scale of impact of the project, an appropriate model is selected. Models include:
  • Steady state: AERMOD, ISC
  • Non-steady state: CALPUFF
  • Water : Groundwater modeling and 3D analysis is critical to the understanding of hydrogeologic and contaminant systems. Multi-dimensional nature of hydrogeologic and chemical distributions greatly enhance the understanding of results by utilizing advanced groundwater modeling techniques with three-dimensional graphics.
  • Noise: The location and acoustic sound power levels of potentially critical noise sources and its propagation can be assessment using mathematical models, which enable digitising a ground map (containing ground contours).
