Environmental Engineering Chemistry and Advanced Environmental Engineering Chemistry and Laboratory were established to serve as teaching activities to undergraduate and graduate students. These Lab also provide a proffessional space for students, lecturers and staff carrying out scientific research.

Teaching Laboratory courses for undergraduate and graduate levels in Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science, Environmental Management, Water Supply and Sewerage,... including:

Applied Environmental Chemistry Laboratory - MT431

Environmental Microbiology Laboratory - MT422

Water Chemistry and Microbiology Laboratory– MT192

Environmental Treatment Unit Laboratory - MT448

Provide facilities to students and lectures analyzing physical, chemical, and microbiological parameters to assess the characteristics of domestic supply water, surface water, wastewater, treated wastewater, groundwater, and soil.

Chemical parameters: độ đục, pH, EC, TDS, SS, BOD5, COD, TKN, NH4+, NO3-, TP, PO43-,Cl-,…

Microbial and biochemical parameters in environment and food: Total coliform, E. coli, Enterococci, Shamonella, heterotrophic, protozoa, enzymatic activities, PCR, Gel electrophoresis, Gel reading,…

Soil: total phosphate, total nitrogen, available phosphate, available nitrogen, total carbon.

Some heavy metals

In addition, Environmental Engineering Chemistry also develop and consult of  environmental treatment units and systems.
