Quality, reliability and accuracy in environmental monitoring.

Environmental monitoring is extremely important in providing the short and long-term indicators of ecosystem health.

To do this effectively, the process should be undertaken for the long term due to the complex, sensitive and slow-changing nature of the environment.  By measuring physical, chemical, and biological variables over time, organisations can evaluate the health of natural resources and make informed management decisions based on scientific data.

As a leading innovator, manufacturer and supplier of portable and fixed landfill gas analysers and biogas analysers, we understand the importance of having the best tools and equipment to ensure accurate assessment and analysis in the environmental monitoring process.

As a result, QED’s range of Geotech gas analysers are the trusted equipment in nearly 50 per cent of all anaerobic digestion sites in the UK.  More than that, Geotech gas analysers have also become the standard-bearer for quality around the world for the past four decades.

The considerable investment we put into the design and manufacture of our gas analysers is matched by an unswerving commitment to customer service and support.  Our customer support teams build intimate and lasting relationships with clients based on mutual trust, understanding and respect.

Here is QED’s Environmental Policy Statement.
