Why the name Miasma?
Our name has its origins. Until mid-19th century, people thought that the poisonous breath of swamp creatures infected mankind with all kinds of diseases. ‘Mi asma’ is Ancient Greek for bad or foul air, and the Latin translation – mala aria – also connects the swamp to air and diseases. In 1850, this theory was debunked with the discovery of the real causes of these diseases. Microbiology was born. A science that we still employ today.
The swamp symbolises all industries in which Miasma operates as a company. For sampling (dredging) sludge and mud, we are the only recognised sample taker in Flanders. The rotting organic material emits swamp gasses that are similar to organic gas rich in methane, such as the one generated in organic gas installations for sustainable energy.
For the microbiological follow-up of the health of similar installations, you can also call on our experts. But it does not end there … safety, waste water, sampling, water quality and air analysis also form part of the possibilities. Therefore, Miasma performs these activities within all these industries, and thus, the choice of the name was easier than imagined.
