  • Piping and Instrument Diagrams (P & IDs)
  • Equipment Design and Procurement
  • Plant Layouts and Construction Drawings
  • Feasibility Studies and Economic Analyses
  • Piping System Designs
  • Design and Installation of Pumps, Tanks, Reactors, Distillation Columns, Heat Exchangers, Cooling Towers, Refrigeration Systems, Hot Oil Heating Processes, Kilns, Thermal and Catalytic Incinerators
  • Design and Installation of Scrubbers, Dust Collectors, Industrial Wastewater Processing Systems, Odor Abatement System, Solvent Recovery Systems
Environmental Engineering
  • Remedial Action Plans (including chemical oxidation and biological soil/groundwater treatment systems)
  • Petroleum service station contamination issues
  • Heavy metal removal from groundwater/process water
  • Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE) system design
  • Deep injection-well disposal
  • Site closures with engineering and institutional controls
Air Permitting Services
  • Title V and Non-Title V Air Permits
  • Submission of annual emissions reports to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state agencies
