  • 5 Tips for Building Your Company EHS Culture in a Low-Risk Environment

    Environment, health and safety (EHS) programs can do more for your company than simply checking off compliance boxes. EHS can also be an integral part of your company’s culture, demonstrating to employees that their happiness, health and safety is a priority—leading to more productivity and a more proactive approach to minimizing risk. Even in low risk environments, like offices or ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Transboundary air pollution research

    No other research institution in Norway has been paid off so well in EU's fifth framework programme as the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU). 'Norway is of no importance to the Europeans', this is the opinion of Director Øystein Hov. 'It's no use promoting Norwegian special points of view in the ...

  • Chemical Air Pollution in the Clinical Research Environment

    There has been a revolution in awareness of chemical air pollution in research laboratories. I could tell you several 'horror stories' of casual exposure to mercury vapour, benzene and chromic acid (the ultimate glassware cleaning agent) among innocent biomedical PhD students (including myself) in the 1970s. But researchers in hospitals, and other laboratories can never afford to be complacent ...

  • Research Note: Air pollution challenges and solutions for China's urban transportation development

    China has experienced dramatic urbanisation and motorisation in the past 20 years. The phenomenal rise in the vehicle population in major cities has resulted in increased air pollution, traffic congestion and other 'wicked problems'. The Chinese government at all levels has made significant effort to control motor vehicle emissions, but vehicle population growth far outpaces their efforts, ...

  • Clean air research multi-year plan 2008-2012

    The Office of Research and Development’s (ORD) Multi-Year Plans (MYPs) describe what research ORD proposes to accomplish over the next 5-10 years in a variety of areas. The MYPs serve three principal purposes: to describe where the research programs are going, to present the significant outputs of the research, and to communicate the research plans within ORD and with stakeholders and clients. ...

  • Air quality and health research in a province producing oil and gas

    The Canadian province of Alberta is a major world producer of oil and gas. It is therefore vested in issues of air quality and health, which are in turn driven by fossil fuel combustion. The scientific community within the province provides the capacity to address these issues and in order to remain current needs to be actively engaged in research. Air quality is generally very good in Alberta. ...

  • Atmospheric research at Ny-Ålesund

    NILU’s atmospheric research in Ny-Ålesund serves three main purposes: Characterisation of the clean atmosphere and atmospheric changes. Investigations of atmospheric transport of pollutants into the Arctic. Studies of atmospheric processes and phenomena in the Arctic.  The Arctic is an interesting area for observations relevant to the cycling of carbon dioxide and other gases which are of concern ...

  • Environmental research and development in nanotechnology

    Maintaining and improving soil, water, and air quality represent some of the most formidable challenges facing global society in the 21st century. Pollutants from such diverse sources as oil and chemical spills, pesticide and fertiliser runoff, abandoned industrial and mining sites, and airborne gaseous and particulate matter from automobiles exacerbate the situation on a daily basis. Detecting ...

  • Energy research and the cobbler’s children

    Scientific research has brought us products that offer greater energy efficiency. But is research, itself, energy efficient? Evan Mills, staff scientist with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, raises this question and points out what may be a largely untapped market for energy efficiency companies: research labs. (See Environmental Science & Technology, ...

  • Clearing the air

    Atmospheric chemist Susan Solomon finds hope in past environmental challenges. Written by Jennifer Chu, MIT News Office. You can read the original story in MIT News ...

  • Review of Recent Research on Vapor Intrusion

    This paper reviews current and recent research in the area of vapor intrusion of organic compounds into residential buildings. We begin with a description of the challenges in evaluating the subsurface-to-indoor air pathway. A discussion of the fate and transport mechanisms affecting vapors along this pathway is then presented. Following this discussion is a brief overview of current Federal ...

  • Ventilation Research on Australian Residential Construction

    This paper applies established and new testing methods to discover the ventilation performance of various residential building envelope constructions in Australia. Under the definition of 'ventilation performance' we imply the building envelope leakage (or infiltration) of the living space air change rates, the volumetric flow rates and the pathways of air flow between subfloor, living and roof ...

  • GAW Regional Station for Atmospheric Research

    The aim of the JRC-Ispra station is to monitor the concentration of pollutants in the gas phase, the particulate phase and precipitations, as well as aerosol optical parameters, which can be used for assessing the impact of European policies on air pollution and climate change. It is particularly well suited for the participation in international monitoring programs like the Co-operative program ...


  • Research on gasification process of loose biomass material with oxygen-enriched air in fluidised bed gasifier

    Fluidised bed gasification technology with oxygen-enriched air suitable for gasifying loose biomass materials was developed. Gasification experiments with different biomass materials such as rice straw, rice hull, wheat straw, sawdust and municipal wastes, were carried out. The tests showed that biomass materials can be gasified continuously at a temperature between 600 and 750°C. The heating ...

In order to establish the effect of this application on membrane ...

  • Research on the economic consequences of the health effects of air pollution in the UK: its methodological, meta-analytical and innovative aspects

    Epidemiological research has identified that there exists a correlation between days of high air pollution and the timing of death for large numbers of individuals. Before economic values can be attached to these impacts, however, greater information is required on the extent of life lost and the socio-economic characteristics of those at greatest risk. It may be more fruitful to base willingness ...

  • Towards use of grids in environmental research, management and policy

    The emerging technology of the grid will enable distributed "virtual organisations" to flexibly share resources including data, software, hardware and expertise. Potential applications in urban air quality illustrate that in addition to underpinning scientific research, grid technology can contribute strongly to environmental monitoring, decision-making and policy-making. Amongst factors that ...

  • Atmospheric Chemistry Research in New EU Countries

    Historically some of the new EU Member States and the Candidate countries experienced high levels of pollution in the past. Enhanced management measures were and are needed to improve the air quality. The present survey on the ongoing air chemistry research is in support to such measures and the incorporation of the EU environmental legislation in the air quality management of these countries. ...
