Experience consolidated and recognized in Environmental Studies, such as Environmental Planning, Water Treatment Systems, Wastewater and Solid Waste
In the Environment Area, we develop multidisciplinary environmental studies in five fields of expertise: Energy, Industry, Environmental Planning, Waste and Wastewater, Transport and Real Estate. This area operates in Portugal and in several international markets, in particular Africa and Latin America.
The types of studies we develop range from Environmental Management Planning, including Strategic Environmental Assessment, to specific studies that include the environmental licensing of projects and/or monitoring of the various phases of a project: Environmental Due Diligence - EDD, Environmental Feasibility Study, Environmental Impact Studies, Environmental Compliance Report on Detailed Design, Environmental Follow-up and Environmental Monitoring. The Environment Area also includes Climate Change and Carbon Market projects.
Our major Environmental Studies include a large number of ESIA of important hydroelectric power plants in Portugal, Angola and Chile, of wind farms and solar power plants in Portugal, the SEA of the National Urbanization and Housing Programme of the Angolan Government in seven Provinces, the study of Knowledge Management of Climate Change in the Energy Sector in Mozambique, EDD for thirteen airports in Portugal, Brazil and Peru; and many other studies in Europe, Africa and Latin America.
