    Water quality monitoring for environmental industry

    Maintaining the quality of natural waters provides numerous economic benefits by preventing severe deterioration of water resources that would require expensive treatment operations to protect public health and the environment. For instance, monitoring nitrates in surface waters can possibly prevent algal blooms from happening by facilitating the necessary steps to stop pollution sources from discharging nitrogen nutrients into the water system.

  • Services related to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

    • Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a complex of measures aimed to identify the character, intensity and severity of impact on the environment and public health caused by any kind of planned economic activity. • The purpose of an EIA is to develop the necessary measures to prevent the harmful effects of the proposed economic activity on the environment or minimization of this influence if you can’t eliminate it. EIA is carried out during the design phase, before the construction of the facility. • As a result of the EIA customer receives information about the character and extent of the environmental impact of the proposed economic activity, information about alternative methods of implementation, assessment of the environmental and other related impacts caused by activities of the enterprise.

  • Environmental Monitoring

    Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.

    This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.

    Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and versatile analysis systems for many different application fields such as pollution in environmental or waste waters, monitoring nutrients in agricultural or horticultural water as well as general process control in chemistry industry. Because of the number of enviromental analysis required, there is a need for screening and monitoring measurements of these compounds at contaminated areas.

    Traditional monitoring techniques are typically based on laboratory analysis of field-collected samples that require considerable effort and expense, and the sample may change before analysis. Moreover, the equipment currently available is too large and expensive and it cannot be made portable.Alternatively, microfluidic and electrochemical sensor technologies can contribute to the development of new portable monitoring systems, complementing standard analytical methods for different environmental monitoring applications.In this way, the decentralization and integration of all those typical analyses is the paramount importance in order to reduce cost, simplify the analytical process and make more accessible these technologies to end-users. The development of portable, robust, and accurate Lab-on-a-Chip systems to monitor priority compounds such as contaminants, explosives, chemical warfare agents, inorganic and organic ions is a demand of modern society. Portability allows analyses to be carried out outside of the laboratory, minimizing the risk of contaminating the sample and leading to a faster response time at a lower cost.

    Thus, MicruX solutions and technologies open the gate to develop portable and esay-handly Lab-on-a-Chip devices in order to improve pollutants in-situ analysis in a very economic and efficient way.

    Drill Cuttings

    Common drilling procedures for oil and gas, used widely around the world, produce a consistently increasing amount drill cuttings containing oil. In some cases, drill cuttings even contain other hazardous components such as mercury or NORM (Natural occurring Radioactive Material), requiring special attention. Treatment of drill cuttings is therefore beneficial from both an environmental and an economic standpoint, allowing valuable drilling oil to be recovered, and ensuring environmentally sound disposal of the drill cuttings. Our VacuDry® technology is designed to safely separate oil, water and mercury from the solids (including NORM), allowing reuse of the oil and safe disposal of the water, mercury, solids and NORM.

    Wastewater solutions for ballast water treatment monitoring

    Problem: To operate safely and efficiently, cargo ships take in water to provide stability. This water, referred to as ballast, carries all kinds of bacteria, microbes and micro-algae. The ballast water must inevitably be discharged when the ship takes on cargo, often thousands of kilometers away from the port of origin, transferring pathogens and aquatic organisms that can cause serious environmental, economic and health problems.

  • Plant Breeding Research

    Biotechnology utilizes transgenic manipulation to change the genetic make-up of plants. Plant breeding is conducted world-wide for a variety of reasons, including improvement of nutritional value, economic opportunity, and environmental adaptation and preservation. Today, international development organizations assert that genetically engineered crops are an important factor in ensuring global health and food security, while simultaneously benefiting farmers, producers, and food manufacturing companies. As such, scientists have developed new higher-yielding varieties that are not only resistant to pests and diseases, but also drought-resistant, or easily adapted to different regional environments and growing conditions

  • Become compliant with the EU Water Framework Directive

    The WFD is the most substantial piece of water legislation ever produced by the European Commission, and will provide the major driver for achieving sustainable management of water in the UK and other EU Member States for many years to come. It requires that all inland and coastal waters within defined river basin districts must reach at least good status by 2015 and defines how this should be achieved through the establishment of environmental objectives and ecological targets for surface waters. The result will be a healthy water environment achieved by taking due account of environmental, economic and social considerations.

  • Cyanide Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide

    Cyanides are used in a number of chemical synthesis and metallurgical processes (as simple salts or cyanide complexes). As a class, cyanides are highly toxic and must be destroyed or removed from wastewaters prior to discharge. The most common method for treating free or simple cyanide is alkaline chlorination. However, chlorination of cyanide results in highly toxic intermediates (e.g., cyanogen chloride) and, if organic material is present, chlorinated VOC’s. These compounds, together with the residual chlorine, create additional environmental problems. Consequently, there is a growing need for alternative, non-chlorine methods for destroying cyanides. Peroxygen compounds such as hydrogen peroxide, peroxymonosulfuric acid (1), and persulfates (1) are effective alternatives to alkaline chlorination for destroying free and complexed cyanides. The choice of peroxygen system depends on the reaction time available, the desired products (cyanate, or CO2 and NH3), the types of cyanides being treated (free, weak acid dissociable, or inert), and the system economics. Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide While hydrogen peroxide will oxidize free cyanide, it is common to catalyze the reaction with a transition metal such as soluble copper, vanadium, tungsten or silver in concentrations of 5 to 50 mg/L (2).
