Envirotech was formed in 1981 in New Delhi by a group of professionals to pioneer indigenous instruments to monitor the air environment. With the implementation of the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act in 1981, environment consultancy offered the opportunity to test the instruments in diverse field settings. When the demand for the instruments grew rapidly, Envirotech reduced its effort in consulting activities in order to concentrate in the manufacturing of monitoring instruments.
A leading manufacturer, exporter and supplier, Envirotech Instruments continues to concentrate on progressive R&D to develop new instruments, Gas Sampling Attachment, facilities for quality control, calibration and opportunity in new markets. Envirotech is associated in its research and development with leading experts in national environment and energy research institutes, laboratories and universities. Instruments are independently tested by government testing agencies. They meet or exceed the primary standard methods of the Central Pollution Control Board and the Ministry of Environment & Forests, Government of India. At the same time, these calibrated instruments are reliable and able to withstand India's harsh environment with extremes of humidity and temperature, erratic power supply and severe operating conditions. The equipment are required to run round-the-clock without the demands of climate control facilities usually needed for on-line models. Envirotech's in-house R&D Center has obtained official recognition from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Government of India.
The market for Envirotech air pollution monitoring instruments is all over India with thousands of our clients. Clients include over 1000 industries, Pollution Control Boards, academic and research institutions and consulting companies.
Due to appropriate technology and suitability of use in warm tropical climate, Envirotech instruments became popular in neighboring SAARC countries. International business spread to other countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, UAE and Egypt. Again, initial consultancy services were overtaken by sales of air monitoring instruments. Additional business opportunities and emerging markets are developing in other countries of South & South East Asia, Middle East and Africa.
Envirotech's instruments adds one to two new instruments each year to its range of products. At this time, Envirotech markets 12 different instruments and specialized support parts for the following-
- Gas Sampling Attachment
