Our Forensic Investigations services
For over twenty years, Gaea Environmental’s team has constantly handled scientific data such as chromatograms, or analytical fingerprints, allowing us to establish a solid understanding of the make-up of petroleum hydrocarbons.
As a result, our unparalleled knowledge is applied to a range of environmental forensics services which deliver an in-depth scrutiny of oil and fuel identification, analysis and evaluation for clients including loss adjusters, insurance companies and the legal profession.
Our experts handle:
- Oil identification
- Weathering & ageing
- CORAT analysis.
Gaea Environmental is a science-led business, believing strongly in remediation techniques which are proven to work. Our knowledge and expertise in the identification of contaminants enables us to analyse oil to produce a wide spectrum fingerprint, crucial in the identification of the source of contamination.
Weathering and ageing of diesels, petrol and heavier oils is professionally assessed and analysed, and CORAT analysis allows for a detailed comparison of samples, such as source and impacted soil samples, determining whether there is a connection and providing recommendations as necessary.
