Project Description

Boyle oversaw construction of a laboratory renovation for one of the most advanced analytical laboratories in the Lehigh Valley region. Bethlehem Apparatus Company is the world’s largest commercial mercury recovery/recycling and retirement facility. This project created a safe, secure and high-tech space that balances a large lab with flexible meeting and office spaces.

As a further commitment to the hazardous waste recovery/recycling market, this lab offers a state-of-the art analytical laboratory with a full-time chemist on staff. This onsite testing capability allows Bethlehem Apparatus to accurately provide a full analysis of the chemical compositon of both liquids and solids. As a result, the company was able to improve processing methods as well as meet environmental and government requlations. The laboratory facilities feature a GDMS (glow discharge mass spectrophotometer) to analyze solids; an ICP-MS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrophotometer) to analyze liquids and to provide full analysis of elements that exist in material; and a particle analyzer to analyze the particle sizes of powders.
