Petroleum Hydrocarbons (PHC) are one of the most common forms of environmental contamination - posing significant human health risk.
Many regulatory jurisdictions are not only interested in testing for individual PHC, but also for total petroleum fractions and sub-fractions.
ALS locations hold accreditations and certifications relevant to their work and area of operation. Participation in various programs is location-specific.
Different total hydrocarbon ranges or aliphatic/aromatic sub-fraction ranges can have significantly varied human health-based toxicological effects. Our services support clients in meeting regulatory air standards for soil vapor migration that can impact indoor air quality through infiltration of sub slab soil vapor into basements and living spaces.
ALS air quality laboratories across North America have the methodology and equipment necessary to meet all your petroleum hydrocarbon testing needs.
Methods and certifications vary depending on location.
