Environmental quality issues are complex, challenging and often strike suddenly. Of particular global concern is the accidental release of oil and petroleum products. Used in a variety of applications, oil products are a fundamental part of the industrial world and their widespread use is accepted as a daily occurrence.
However, with such widespread use, it is inevitable that these compounds will be accidentally released into the environment in both small and in some cases very large quantities. When this occurs, the impact is very serious and in some instances catastrophic. In addition to the surrounding water, air and soil, petroleum contamination can even spread into the food chain where the effects can be severe and long lasting. Working with industrial, academic and governmental partners, Waters Corporation is committed to providing tools and solutions to help resolve these difficult situations.
