CDM Smith’s Bellevue Research and Testing Laboratory Expands In-House Capa­bil­i­ties

April 6, 2018

BELLEVUE, Washington—CDM Smith is pleased to announce that its Research and Testing Laboratory in Bellevue, Washington has received new advanced testing equipment to further expand its in-house research and testing capa­bil­i­ties. With these additions, CDM Smith will have greater capacity to develop innovative solutions in the water purifi­ca­tion realm by providing design support for advanced oxidation processes, and combining disin­fec­tion techniques to treat emerging cont­a­m­i­nants such as 1,4-dioxane, perflu­o­roalkyl and poly­flu­o­roalkyl substances (PFAS) and more.

The laboratory has recently procured a new ultraviolet system with batch and flow-through capa­bil­i­ties, ozone generator, and ion chro­matog­ra­phy equipment. The new equipment will help support treata­bil­ity testing and char­ac­ter­i­za­tion of water, as well as research and technology development initiatives within the envi­ron­men­tal, water and wastewater markets.

As the industry leader in ozone disin­fec­tion, this new equipment helps CDM Smith deliver the most efficient solutions to our clients. “The goal is to identify easy to implement and more cost-effective solutions,” explains Zoom Nguyen, laboratory manager. “It’s an exciting time—there are many tech­no­log­i­cal advance­ments occurring in the remediation, drinking water and wastewater areas.”

The equipment upgrades are backed by CDM Smith’s research and development program. Through this program, CDM Smith partners with clients, non-profit research foundations, univer­si­ties and vendors, contribut­ing to more than 35 ground­break­ing water, wastewater, water reuse, envi­ron­men­tal, energy and trans­porta­tion projects each year.
