Our Environmental Fate staff includes internationally recognized experts in environmental fate, biodegradation and bioconcentration. With dedicated laboratories, sophisticated equipment, and expert knowledge of global guidelines, Smithers provides extensive experience in the environmental challenges associated with product development.

Our soil scientists provide a water, sediment, and soil analysis service for agrochemical clients. Smithers provides adsorption / desorption testing in soils, sediment and activated sludge. We have decades of experience conducting biodegradation studies. Our studies assess a compound’s propensity to be readily or inherently biodegradable based on standard ready biodegradability guidelines or higher-tiered inherent biodegradability guidelines.

Our bioaccumulation test species include a variety of cold and warm water fish species such as trout, bluegill and carp, as well as invertebrates such as oysters, aquatic worms, and earthworms.
