Chemistry Matters has real world experience with the multiple chemicals associated with your potential challenges. When we say real world, we mean that we have measured, sampled, and interpreted these compounds in our projects previously. The scientists with the experience are the ones that will be working on your project.

“Dr. Court Sandau and the other Chemistry Matters professionals provide ‎an unmatched technical consulting service. Beginning with the development of a well thought out and science based work scope, ‎Chemistry Matters provides insightful data analysis and data presentation that illuminates the material aspects and eliminates the noise.

Dr. Sandau’s guidance was particularly helpful on a high profile multi media (water, sediment and tissue) PAH problem. His data analysis and data presentation brought clarity and simplified a complex problem.

I look forward to the next opportunity to engage the services of Dr. Sandau and the other Chemistry Matters professionals.”Tom KnapikManager, Environment & Compliance, Plains Midstream Canada
