We are proven innovators with the foresight to help you manage emerging contaminants at the right time, in the right way.

No one likes surprises when it comes to emerging contaminants. If your project site is contaminated with the latest chemicals of concern, your organization could face public ire, lawsuits, killed deals, and damaged brand value. On the other hand, acting too soon might mean sinking money into the investigation and cleanup of a chemical whose hype is worse than its legitimate threat to human and public health — not to mention the fact that available treatment technologies are expensive to implement. With all this at stake, how do you understand, manage, and minimize liabilities on sites impacted by emerging contaminants? 

For 30 years, Haley & Aldrich has stood at the forefront of researching and developing technologies for addressing emerging contaminants. We believe that one approach doesn’t fit all organizations. We take the time to understand your organization and site, and the challenges associated with both.

Armed with these insights, we consider evolving scientific and regulatory developments, tapping into our in-depth industry expertise to identify the risks and liabilities you’re up against. Then, we develop a customized approach that considers your organization’s culture, risk tolerance, and business priorities, while respecting your bottom line.
