LABAQUA, S.A. was founded in 1991 as a service company providing solutions in the areas of environmental consultancy and laboratory analysis for industry and government.

LABAQUA, in a period of growth and expansion, is gearing its actions towards consolidating its position as a benchmark in the consultancy and environmental laboratory market. It aims to be a responsible, efficient and competitive multinational company, committed to the environment and ready to compete globally, serving its markets and seeking to exceed its customers’ expectations.

At LABAQUA, we meet the market’s environmental needs for both testing, with our own laboratory, and consultancy, through our lines of environmental services, bio-safety and gas treatment. To do this, we apply state-of-the-art technology, ensuring we are at the cutting edge, aware of the key role played by quality assurance, where we mark the difference.

LABAQUA has ENAC certification for the standard UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 (competence for testing and calibration laboratories) and UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17020 (as an environmental inspection agency). We also have certification for the international standards ISO 9001 (quality management systems) and ISO 14001 (environmental management systems) and various authorisations, as well as OSHAS 18001 (occupational health and safety management system).

LABAQUA offers its customers a high-performing workforce, specialising in a variety of environmental areas and used to working in demanding situations in terms of both deadlines and results. Made up of doctors, graduates, engineers and specialists, we provide commercial and technical support based on our experience, our knowledge and the most recent regulations, keeping our technological observatories active at all times, enabling us to present the ideal offer to our customers.

We have an R&D department with research lines and projects covering various fields within the environmental sphere and we participate in European Union-funded projects, developing our own patents or transmitting improvements in methods and the application of new techniques to the international scientific community.

We are identified by four key values:

  • Highly qualified workforce.
  • Commitment to investment in new technologies.
  • Essential commitment to quality.
  • Speed in answering customer and short testing times.

Technical analysis services

With over 40 years in the environmental sector, LABAQUA, S.A. has a network of specialist laboratories fitted with state-of-the-art technology to analyse and control the quality of all types of water, soil, sludge, leachates, waste and air (emissions and ground-level concentrations). We are aware that the goals of our customers must be adopted by LABAQUA as a supplier of these services, making quality, speed and service our trademarks.

Thanks to the cutting-edge technology in our laboratories, we can perform such complex analyses as: assays of traces and ultratraces of organic micropollutants and metals in different matrices; characterisation of radioactivity (α and β radioactivity, total indicative dose and radionuclides); rapid biological assay methods (PCR, qPCR, flow cytometry and others).

Environmental services

LABAQUA provides environmental consultancy and monitoring, from drawing up and executing monitoring plans to specific projects in biodiversity, always working in conjunction with our customers (industry and government), permitting them to adopt the right strategic decisions and strengthening competitiveness and innovation in environmental and social policy.

Driven by this spirit, we have set up the environmental services line, offering advice and management in the following fields:

  • Consultancy and environmental monitoring, in both the natural and industrial environments.
  • Bio-safety, prevention of Legionnaires' disease and biological hazard management in both external and internal environments. 
  • Air quality: comprehensive odour management and gas treatment.

Air quality

In adapting to the new criteria by which our customers demand comprehensive solutions, we have generated a new activity that undertakes ‘turn-key projects’ in the field of environmental gas and dust generation, integrating everything from case assessment to the implementation of the most suitable solution and its commissioning.

The generation of gases and particulate matter (dust) represents a complex problem with respect to the quality of interior air and atmospheric emissions, requiring specific solutions. Conventional solutions based solely on ‘end of line’ treatment have proven ineffective on numerous occasions. The solution should consider the gas-generating processes, minimising the flows requiring treatment (which affects energy costs), suitable catchment/ventilation and piping and, finally, possible treatment alternatives. Only in this way do we guarantee the best solution with the best implementation and operating costs. LABAQUA does not offer a catalogue of ‘filtration systems’, but custom solutions: we assess the production process and propose the best technical and economic solution.
