Strategic Environmental Analysis , L.C. (SEA) is an environmental management consulting firm that serves clients in the hazardous waste, radioactive waste, solid waste, recycling and wastewater fields by analyzing the impact of business, regulatory and technology factors on the environmental services marketplace, and by devising strategies to cope with future market conditions. SEA's areas of practice include custom market surveys, due diligence investigations, regulatory analysis, expert witness testimony and litigation support, and technology assessments, multi-client research, and policy development and representation projects.
Occasionally firms seek a modification of an existing regulation or the establishment of a new policy to facilitate the deployment or permitting of a given technology or waste management approach. SEA has worked with over 200 firms on a wide variety of policy development issues at the Federal and State level since 1979, many involving implementation of the 1984 HSWA and the 1980 and 1986 amendments to CERCLA or Superfund.
