Micropollutants and their transformation products are being increasingly detected in Swiss waters. This is attributable partly to ever more powerful analytical methods, but also to a steady rise in the use of man-made substances. Public awareness of this issue has been heightened in particular by the findings of research on endocrine disruptors – e.g. the feminization of male fish due to estrogens in water. As Europe's 'water tower', Switzerland has a special responsibility towards its neighbours. It is therefore rightly one of the leading countries involved in studies of aquatic micropollutants.
LED Powered Advanced Oxidation System for Lab test Water Case Study
APPLICATION NOTE: LABORATORY WASTE WATER TREATMENT. TEAM: PURALYTICS. Every day, analytical, medical, bioscience, and research laboratories create wastewater that needs to be treated before it can be disposed of. Puralytics has developed an effective water treatment system which can reduce hazardous contaminants from laboratory wastewater.
analytica 2018 with a new visitor-record and an award for IONICON
Laborpraxis application award 2018 goes to CHARON for PTR-TOFMS Last week the 26th analytica trade show and conference attracted some 35,800 international visitors to Munich, breaking all previous attendance records. Exactly 50 years after analytica was launched, the anniversary event was again a perfect stage for IONICON to show-case our latest innovations, especially since this year we also have an anniversary: we will soon celebrate 20 years IONICON! analytica 2018 held yet another very positive surprise...
HydraProbe selected to be used in Canada’s RISMA Network for Agricultural Monitoring
A new study published in the Soil Science Society of America Journal investigated the field performance of 5 soil moisture instruments in heavy clay soils. The HydraProbe outperformed TDR and capacitance-based soil sensors in terms of stability and accuracy in Manitoba’s agricultural soil. Much of soil in the Canadian Prairie farmland is vertisolic. A new study published in the Soil Science Society of America Journal investigated the field performance of 5 soil moisture instruments in heavy clay soils...
Remote automation and analytics for a smart water grid
Objectives identified by OFWAT include the improvement of day-to-day resilience through the reduction of the number of supply interruptions, sewer flooding and pollution incidents, the reduction of water leakage and introduction of performance commitments specifically on improving resilience to drought and flooding. Recommendations include the assessment of a wide range of options including investment in new infrastructure, water transfers and measures to significantly improve water efficiency and reduce consumptio...
4 Benefits of using a centralized solution for water management
Water and wastewater management are closely tied with energy use, environmental impact and employee safety, as each of these impacts—and is impacted by—water management processes in your organization. Just like with all of your other EHS processes, how you manage and organize water and wastewater management can make a big difference in its success. Here are some benefits of managing all water and wastewater permits, analytical results and reports in one central platform. 1. You’ll Stay on...
