Environmental concerns continue to grow in the transportation sector due to increasing mobility demands for passengers and freight, especially in urban areas. The good news is that the transportation industry is working with private industry and local, regional, and collaborative groups (such as colleges and universities), along with the professionals of SCS Engineers, to develop clean and efficient energy programs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and resolve other environmental issues.
SCS provides environmental scientists and consultants and innovative technologies to help our private and public sector clients create sustainable plans and environmental solutions. We help with a range of transportation initiatives, such as determining the environmental impact of adjusting shipping lanes, air pollution monitoring studies at airports, the safe transportation of crude oil in high-pressure pipelines, and vehicle fuel projects which convert landfill gas into compressed natural gas (CNG) for use by transit systems.
SCS professionals work with your facility staff evaluating your environmental programs as they relate to local, state, and federal regulations. An environmental compliance audit will note observed deficiencies and make recommended corrective actions.
The most important impacts of transportation on the environment relate to climate change, air quality, noise concerns, water quality, soil quality, and biodiversity. SCS Engineers works in partnership with our clients and agencies at the Federal, local, and state levels to help communities and private enterprises reach sustainable goals.
