  • What Makes SpillFix The Better Absorbent Product?

    What is your go-to absorbent product? For many people working at garages or on industrial sites, when looking to clean up a liquid spill their go-to absorbent product is one of the popular brand clay based solutions. However, the truth is that clay absorbent products are usually not easy to use and pose a number of safety-related risks when used improperly. We believe that when it comes to ...

  • What kind of knowledge can a firm absorb?

    Economists emphasise the crucial role of absorptive capacity with regard to external knowledge. In this respect, the firm's knowledge base determines its ability to recognise, assimilate and exploit externalities. Assuming that a firm's absorptive capacity also depends upon the characteristics of external knowledge, this paper analyses the relationship between three basic concepts empirically ...

  • Determining flammability of SpillFix Universal Organic Absorbent

    SpillFix Universal Organic Absorbent is an industrial absorbent product made from natural coir (coconut husk). Flammability tests (as detailed below) have determined that the product is a Not Readily Combustible Solid, and is unlikely to catch fire even after absorbing flammable spills. Determining Flammability The tests for determining ...

  • Effects and mechanistic aspects of absorbing organic compounds by coking coal

    Coal is a porous medium and natural absorbent. It can be used for its original purpose after adsorbing organic compounds, its value does not reduce and the pollutants are recycled, and then through systemic circulation of coking wastewater zero emissions can be achieved. Thus, a novel method of industrial organic wastewater treatment using adsorption on coal is introduced. Coking coal was used ...

  • The assessment of the absorbed dose of radiation around a nuclear fuel manufacturing plant

    The estimation of the absorbed dose of radiation by the public around a nuclear plant is a substantial issue for nuclear industries and serves as an essential factor in radiation protection. In this study, the absorbed dose of radiation by the individuals living around a nuclear fuel manufacturing plant was calculated. The Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) code, which is the generalised version of ...

  • Could SpillFix Become Your Main Go To Absorbent Product

    When dealing with spills around the workplace, anyone on-site must be ready to both contain and to clean up any possible spill. Typically when cleaning the spill, an absorbent product is brought into the mix. And if there’s one thing we’ve learned over our years of experience, it’s that when you use an absorbent product you want to use the right absorbent product.  ...

  • Biological treatment of pharmaceutical wastewater from the antibiotics industry

    Pharmaceutical wastewater generated by an antibiotics (penicillin) company was treated by aerobic membrane bioreactors (MBRs) and sequencing batch reactors (SBRs). At a low organic loading rate of 0.22 kg-COD m−3d−1, both types of reactors were capable of treating the wastewater such that the treated effluent met the discharge regulation except for the total dissolved ...

  • The Applications of an Industrial Drying Oven

    Industrial drying ovens are designed to simultaneously heat a material while withdrawing moisture from its surface, a process with many commercial, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications. These are primarily used for batch processes – though varying product or research requirements need vastly different mechanisms and components. However, there is a basic three-stage operating process ...

  • The role of foreign direct investment in Indonesia's industrial technology development

    Despite the large inflows of FDI into Indonesia's manufacturing sector during the past three decades, Indonesia has in general not been very successful in taking full advantage of the presence of FDI projects to promote the development of its indigenous industrial technological capabilities, at least compared to its East Asian neighbours. This lack of success has been attributed to the high ...

  • Effect of ozonation on activated sludge from pulp and paper industry

    Aerobic biological treatment with activated sludge is the predominant process all over the world for treatment of pulp and paper industry wastewater. 50–70% of the biodegradable organic material is oxidized to CO2 and the rest is converted to bacterial biomass, typically termed as excess sludge or waste activated sludge (WAS). Handling and disposal of WAS in general and in particular from the ...

  • UV, a bright future for the water industry

    The use of Ultra Violet (UV) light has now become standard practice in most municipal waste water treatment processes.  Effluent is now starting to be recognised as a valuable resource, not a problem that needs to be dumped. Many waste water facilities are being renamed as water reclamation facilities, and whether the waste water is being discharged into a river, being used to irrigate ...

  • Evolution of the South Korean wireless industry: from state guidance to global competition

    Two of the leading wireless manufacturers, LG and Samsung, got their start from Korean state-sponsored efforts to support industrialisation in advanced technology. These efforts follow an evolutionary trajectory of heavy handed state ‘guidance’ to a more regulatory approach in line with change circumstances and events, including the companies' success. While not without negative and ...

  • The radiological impact on some workers due to the natural radionuclides from some industries

    A total of 37 different soil samples and 22 air samples were collected from natural industrial sources. The air samples were collected at a height of 1 m above the ground on 10.4 cm diameter filter paper (with a desired collection efficiency) using a high-volume air sampler. The activity concentration levels of naturally occurring radionuclides such as the U-238 series and Th-232 series were ...
