Environmental test methods

Environmental test methods – 1982

SRI has contributed significantly to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations by developing the general methods and protocols for testing the properties of potentially harmful chemicals as they are created and transformed in the Earth’s environment.

SRI’s chemistry labs have also helped EPA and its overseas counterpart, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), define test methods for hydrolysis, photochemical reactions, and sorption in soil, as well as vapor pressure and volatilization models for dispersion in air.

These SRI methods were incorporated into EPA testing starting in 1982 and continue to this day.
