Hydrocarbon Forensics
When you need to know exactly where hydrocarbon contaminants have originated, we can help.  Battelle’s team of experienced hydrocarbon chemists offers rapid response, accurate analysis and an integrated analytical and statistical approach to hydrocarbon forensics. Traditional EPA methods do not target all of the analytes needed for accurate hydrocarbon source identification. Our methods go beyond minimum EPA requirements to enhance detection limits, reduce false positives and negatives, and provide better data for more accurate source attribution.

Our unique laboratory and research facilities employ advanced biomarker and other high resolution analysis and chemometric capabilities to detect and identify petroleum hydrocarbons in sensitive environments and track their dispersion, transformation and ultimate fate. We conduct sophisticated analysis to support advanced hydrocarbon composition analysis, toxicology studies, water accommodated fraction/chemically enhanced water accommodated fraction (WAF/CEWAF) studies, ecological risk assessment, fingerprinting, and source attribution.

Battelle delivers:

  • Rapid response for time-dependent investigations
  • Accurate product identification (fingerprinting) to determine source(s) and relative contribution
  • Reliable data for assessment of environmental impact, legal responsibility and liability issues
  • Analysis of biodegradation and environmental impact for more efficient spill response
