Cardno MM&A, a diverse consulting and engineering firm headquartered in Bluefield, Virginia, U.S.A., offers a wide spectrum of services to clients in North America, South America, Asia, and Europe. Over its 35-year history, Cardno MM&A has evolved into a leader in the mineral resource, environmental, and carbon management industries. The company's growth is based on a commitment to applying and developing advanced engineering and scientific technologies and maintaining our talented staff of geologists; hydrologists; earth scientists; and mining, petroleum, environmental, and civil engineers.
The roots of Cardno MM&A originated with professional services provided to the coal, aggregate, industrial minerals, unconventional gas, financial, and insurance industries. Professional services include mining engineering, coal and petroleum geology, petroleum engineering, mining-related environmental services, expert witness and litigation support, valuation and appraisals, financial and operations assessment, advisory services, permitting/regulatory services, and wireline geophysics. As the leading consulting firm in the United States working in the coal and coalbed methane industries, our energy-related client base consists of over 250 companies. Since 2005 Cardno MM&A has been an active participant in a Department of Energy-sponsored Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project related to storage in thin, unmineable coal seams and other deep formations.
In the early 1990s Cardno MM&A added environmental services to diversify and to insulate the company from the cyclic nature of the energy business. Professional services include environmental risk assessment, remediation, environmental site assessments and impact studies, hazardous waste evaluation, compliance monitoring and reporting, permitting and emergency response. Cardno MM&A offers these services to the mining and transportation industries, federal and state government agencies, financial and insurance companies, and local industrial markets proximal to our regional office locations. Our environmental client base consists of over 500 companies.
In 2005 we combined the experience and technical expertise of our energy and environmental staff to focus on emerging carbon capture and storage projects. Cardno MM&A is actively participating in multiple scenarios, including the injection of 1,000 tons of CO2 into a coalbed methane reservoir and various carbon footprint evaluations. Our staff is currently researching the mandatory reporting rules (MRR) related to greenhouse gases (GHG) as proposed by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Cardno MM&A engineering, geological, and environmental professionals are leaders in this newly developing field. This is a natural extension of Cardno MM&A services to business sectors where we have an excellent reputation and strong client contacts.
Cardno MM&A represents a unique assembly of engineering and science-related professionals, whose goals are to primarily serve the fossil fuels, transportation, and land and mineral development industries; and to integrate successfully and professionally with government agencies to achieve environmental responsibility and preservation of natural resources.
It is also a company focused on the facilitation and design of sustainability programs and projects that in turn support the protection of lands and water resources and enhance the long-term use and viability of developed lands.
