Air quality

Clean air is essential for good health, and this is especially true when it comes to indoor air.  We spend close to 90% of our time inside; at home, at work and in recreational environments.  Most people, however, are unaware of the effects that poor indoor air quality can have on their health.

Indoor air quality can often be much worse than outdoor air and can be two to five times more polluted than outside.  Commercially, culprits of poor indoor air quality are flooring, furnishings, poor cleaning, and poor ventilation.  In the industrial setting, many materials and chemicals used to manufacture products can also have a direct effect on a buildings air quality.

NED can provide you with

  • Identification and air assessment
  • Specific air quality testing (CO², mould, air particulate)
  • Installation of improved air filtration products
  • Professional cleaning services to safely remove mould and any possible contaminants

Water Waste and Filtration

Water purification

The process of removing undesirable chemicals, materials, and biological contaminants from contaminated water. The goal is to produce water fit for a specific purpose. Most water is purified for human consumption (drinking water) but water purification may also be designed for a variety of other purposes, including meeting health and safety requirements or in house recycling.

Our Filtration Systems

Our ALAR Auto-Vac is a rotary vacuum drum pre-coat filter that effectively removes solid particles from the sludge, producing dewatered dry waste.  The Auto-Vac is self-cleaning with every revolution, which prevents blinding or clogging, and provides rapid filtration and extremely high filtrate clarity.

We have used our system in industries pertaining to forging, stamping, and metal machining, but the ALAR can also be used in food processing to limit excess waste thrown back into sewer systems.  Also, factory's that use above or below ground pits or tanks can utilize our filtration system to eliminate liquid waste pumping fees. 

Water Sampling

Our third party lab offers competitive pricing and complete assurance on accurate results.   

  • Heavy metals
  • pH
  • BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand)
  • Oil and Grease
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Etc…


Why are soil samples important?

Analysis of soil samples are used to determine nutrient and contaminated content, composition, and other characteristics such as the acidity or pH level.  A soil test can determine fertility, or the expected growth potential of the soil which indicates nutrient deficiencies, potential toxicities from excessive fertility and inhibitions from the presence of non-essential trace minerals.

Common contaminants NED samples

  • Arsenic
  • Barium
  • Cadmium
  • Copper
  •  Mercury
  •  Lead
  •  Zinc

Why sample with NED?

Our accredited third party laboratory has a track record of not only accurate results, but administers the use of timely fashion to be sure no project or sale gets postponed.


Health Risks

Exposure to lead is bad for your health.  Lead poisoning can occur when you are exposed to high levels of lead.  This can cause anemia and impaired brain and nervous system functions.  Even low levels of exposure to lead can cause health effects such as learning disabilities in children. 

How can we help?

The public's exposure to lead has decreased in recent years, however, lead is still prevalent and can still be found in older homes, buildings and structures.  Niagara Environmental Dynamics can safely identify, remove, and dispose of lead containing materials to keep your employees and family safe.  Our team of abatement professionals can perform type 1, type 2, and type 3 removals in a wide range of environments and settings.

PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls)

About PCBs and Health Risks

PCBs belong to a family of man-made organic chemicals known as chlorinated hydrocarbons.  They have a range of toxicity and vary in consistency from thin, light-coloured liquids to yellow or black waxy solids. Due to their non-flammability, chemical stability, high boiling point, and electrical insulating properties, PCBs were used in hundreds of industrial and commercial applications.

PCBs have been demonstrated to cause cancer, as well as a variety of other adverse health effects on the immune system, reproductive system, nervous system, and endocrine system.

You can find PCBs in

  • Transformers and capacitors
  • Other electrical equipment including voltage regulators, switches, bushings, and electromagnets
  • Oil used in motors and hydraulic systems
  • Old electrical devices or appliances containing PCB capacitors
  • Fluorescent light ballasts
  • Cable insulation
  • Thermal insulation material including fibreglass, felt, foam, and cork
  • Adhesives and tapes
  • Oil-based paint
  • Caulking
  • Plastics
  • Carbonless copy paper
  • Floor finish 

Diminishing and Disposal of PCBs

Our office staff and technicians can properly document, handle and correctly dispose PCB materials in coordination of Ontario Regulation 362.
