Environmental Fate and Transport Modeling
Knowing the potential for a chemical to be released from a product is a key component of the risk assessment process, because it provides of an understanding of how people and the environment may be exposed. Cardno ChemRisk engineers employ a variety of state-of- the-art- tools to evaluate or predict the movement of chemicals from a product to the ambient environment. These include screening models such as ECETOC-TRA, E-Fast and SCREEN 3 which give a general sense of the potential for chemical release, and higher tier models such as EUSES, ConsEXPO, and AIRMOD, which provide a more precise understanding. These environmental models allow Cardno ChemRisk scientists to evaluate a wide variety of conditions associated with the product’s life cycle and to understand where risk management measures may be most effective.
