Geosyntec is a leading provider of environmental consulting services to multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries serving locations in the United States and Europe. We know that strict compliance in these highly regulated industries is essential for our clients to maintain excellent public relations and a reputation for social responsibility and environmental stewardship.

We develop and implement strategic assessment, remediation, and other compliance-related solutions for both operational facilities and closed properties, routinely managing the challenges associated with complex waste streams and constituents that are not typical of other manufacturing operations. In fact, Geosyntec is among the first consulting firms to develop in situ remediation strategies to address sulfa drugs and barbiturates as significant contaminants of concern at sites with a broad mix of wastes affecting soil and groundwater quality.
