IEc provides consulting services that cover the full range of chemistry evaluations from study design, sampling, and applied chemical analysis to the interpretation of chemical data and the use of those data for decision-making.

Our Services
  • We have key relationships with the top U.S. analytical laboratories, including high-throughput labs and specialty R&D labs. We also work closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Geological Survey, and a multitude of academic labs.
  • We design and implement field studies to assess environmental impacts from the full suite of potential environmental contaminants including metals, oil and associated hydrocarbons, PCBs, pesticides, and other compounds in environmental media such as water, sediment, and biota.
  • We develop models of contaminant fate and transport, including bioconcentration and bioaccumulation through foodwebs.
  • We interpret chemical information, assisting government agencies in the development of policy related to hazardous contaminant cleanup and ecological and human health risk and impact assessment.
  • We assist clients in the assessment of natural resource injury and damages stemming for contaminant releases.
