    Fast Water, Rivers & Lakes

    Oil spill response operations are notably difficult in rivers with strong current. In addition, when considering response times for river spills in relation to the mobilisation time required for conventional land- or vessel-based boom systems, a timely response is often a logistic impossibility especially in the more remote regions. Therefore, equipment must be readily at hand near the sites of operation and pre-rigged lines, cables and mooring areas are a must. Selection of a good location to deploy the oil containment system is dependent upon prior planning and understanding of the currents. Drift studies, river run off histories, tidal current tables and charts, plus computer modeling are all useful tools to understand the flow patterns and to develop recovery strategies. Reading the currents and flow patterns require practice and understanding of the hydrodynamics involved.

    Beach & Shoreline

    For oil spill response in beach and shoreline environments DESMI offers a whole host of equipment to handle any eventuality. The smaller sizes of Ro-Boom and Ro-Beach are unequalled in application and robustness while the range of lightweight Troilbooms can meet the lower cost expectations. In addition the famous Termite and Mini-Max weir skimmers are proven performers in recovery. Recovery systems are also available in vacuum designs from the well-known Ro-Vac to the highly portable Ro-Vac Mini – the latter even with its own transfer pump system to divert the pollutant. Although the Ro-Tank can also be used on land or the back of a trailer, the Troil range of open top tanks offer the perfect solution for storage of the recovered oil. These tanks are very lightweight and need no special tools to erect. The tanks offer a wide selection of capacities – indeed , the smaller units are ideal for decontamination duties.

    Water Treatment Solutions for Nitrate Removal

    Most nitrogenous materials in natural waters tend to be converted to nitrate, so all sources of combined nitrogen, particularly organic nitrogen and ammonia, should be considered as potential nitrate sources. Primary sources of organic nitrates include human sewage and livestock manure, especially from feedlots. The primary inorganic nitrates which may contaminate drinking water are potassium nitrate and ammonium nitrate both of which are widely used as fertilizers. According to the Toxics Release Inventory, releases to water and land totaled over 112 million pounds from 1991 through 1993.

    PEHD membrane sealing systems for landfill surface liners

    Unlike base liners, surface liners are not buried at some point under many metres of waste and instead are usually protected over the course of many years only by a 1-metre thick mineral layer. As a result, there can be uncertainty about the integrity of their leak-proofing characteristics, particularly if the land is subsequently used for other purposes; however, at the same time, repairs are also possible at reasonable cost if the location of any damage can be established.

  • Air monitoring equipments for soil contamination monitoring

    Previous land uses or accidental spills can result in Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) contamination of soils. Volatile and semi-volatile compounds can then permeate through the soil and may persist for several years. This contamination can be traced and measured using our Soil Probes in conjunction with our VOC sorbent tubes. Soil probes are also useful in checking the effectiveness of remediation actions. This monitoring technique provides a cost-effective identification of hazardous gases.

  • GIS software for conservation

    Sustaining biodiversity and preventing fragmentation, extinction, and natural resource depletion are crucial to conservation of the environment. The ability to use GIS technology as a tool to monitor habitat change, track wildlife demographics, and predict future land and resource use is essential to conservation goals and practices. The spatial and thematic aspects of GIS technology enable users to overlay various data to delineate and predict the future of our resources, land, ocean, plant life, and wildlife. This geoprocessing enables decision makers to implement laws and programs that will protect and sustain the environment and its resources.

  • Evidence for claims of sustainability / responsible stewardship

    In many land intensive sectors, strict national, regional and global standards and regulations exist guiding how products must be produced. As pressures on land, biodiversity and communities in developing countries become stronger, ever tighter regulations will result. OE can be used to demonstrate compliance with any type of environmental regulation, for example in the areas of biofuels, timber, palm oil, forest protection, and water usage.

  • Production of Biofuels from Microalgae

    Production of biofuels from certain microalgae and cyanobacteria would appear to be the most promising alternative to current methods, since its yield is very high, sustainable, uses either wastewater, brackish or seawater, does not require the use of agricultural land, does not compete with human food and the cultivation process consumes the CO2noxious gas.

    ALGAENERGY is responsibly paving the way towards making microalgal-based biofuels industrially profitable.  The R&D projects assigned to this task include work on selection and genetic engineering of different microalgae to produce substantial lipid-carriers, some of them patented, as well as the establishment of a suitable and scalable production process.

  • Erosion & sediment control solutions for water remediation

    `Water should never be treated as a nonrenewable resource; it should always be treated with the respect it deserves as the foundation of life on the planet.` Most water on earth is in a continuous cycle between water bodies, land and the atmosphere. An important component of smart water solutions is the cycling of water treatment solutions using processes by which water enters, moves through and exits soil are essential for sustaining plants and soil organisms, transporting nutrients and recharging surface and ground water supplies. Water moving in soil also impacts the behavior and transport of soil solutes and their effect on water quality.

  • Solutions for the aerobic bioremediation

    BioSolve Pinkwater is used to accelerate natural bioremediation of contaminated soil either on site through surface application or on land farms through application to biopiles. When Pinkwater solution is sprayed onto and aggressively mixed into contaminated soil, hydrocarbons come in contact with the strongly “lipophilic” (oil loving) surfactant. Mimicking the process by which bacteria make hydrocarbons digestible, the surfactants “solubilize” contaminates, pulling them into an aqueous phase. This greatly enhances “bioavailability” for naturally occurring hydrocarbon degrader bacteria. Bacteria are able to more rapidly consume the contaminating oil/fuel, thereby dramatically accelerating the biodegradation process.
