  • Analytical Support for Cost-Effective Pollution Control

    ' Analytical tools have been developed by the World Bank Group to estimate rapidly the extent and impacts of pollution in a given situation and to support decisions on pollution management. These tools help decision makers to overcome the frequent lack of data on emissions from different sources, their impact on ambient quality, and mitigation alternatives.' Decision Support System for ...

  • Recognised Results Based on Analytical Quality Assurance

    Quality assurance and analysis are completely interlinked. There is much more to ensuring high precision of the measured results than simply the type of  analytical process (standard/operational analysis) that is used. The care taken over the individual work steps and the quality assurance measures that are implemented, play a much greater role. The manufacturer actually carries out a substantial ...


  • Management of hazardous materials generated by environmental analytical laboratories

    All environmental analytical laboratories unavoidably generate some hazardous waste in the performance of their activities. A workable plan to manage this waste is essential to the safe, economical, and legal operation of such a laboratory. Government environmental laboratories have the added responsibility of serving as examples to the industrial community and public under their jurisdiction. ...

  • Analytical Methodology for the Characterization of Steels and Iron Alloys by Atomic Absorption Analysis

    The analysis of irons and steels has always been a very important job in the industrial and commercial environment. The grading of steels and iron alloys is critical to characterizing their respective strengths to corrosion and stress. There are also many protocols for the several hundred types of steels available. Fe is always the primary component, with elements such as Ni and Cr as major ...

  • A middleware framework to create data structures for a visual analytics object oriented approach

    Visual analytics requires the use of large datasets and most of the times visualisations use their own data structures definition or make use of simple standards such as XML, CVS, or text files. Our proposal presents a middleware framework that focuses on providing a way to create those data structures, allowing to access heterogeneous data sources. The framework allows defining data structures ...

  • Greywater treatment for reuse: comparison of reuse options using analytic hierarchy process

    The objective of the present study was to: (i) examine the performance of two-stage sand filtration and the effect of coagulants on greywater (GW) characteristics; (ii) assess the quality of treated GW for reuse; and (iii) compare reuse options using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). Four treatment options were examined on site. The first option was related to two-stage sand filtration ...
