  • Estimation of dead or live bacteria using online Bacteria Activity monitoring - Case Study

    The BACTcontrol, a microLAN instrument, measures on-line bacterial enzyme activity in food and aquatic samples. Besides ß-DGlucuronidase, ß-Galactosidase and ß-Glucosidase to measure E.coli, Coliform and Enterococci activity respectively also alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity is measured to determine Total Activity. The BACTcontrol TA test measures the metabolism activity of ...

  • 10 Reasons why you should continuously monitor low temperature and liquid chemical sterilants for worker safety

    1. Sterilant chemicals are highly toxic Low temperature and liquid chemical sterilants are designed to kill all microorganisms including resistant spores and if they were not toxic, they would not be effective in sufficiently high concentration to destroy all microbial life including the chemically resistant sporicidal forms of certain ...

  • Results of Full-Scale Installation and Comparison of Biofilter Operation (PDF)

    ABSTRACTBio·Reaction Industries LLC. (BRI) has completed a two-phase project for the design, testing and installation of a biofiltration unit to degrade volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including benzene, toluene, xylenes, ethyl benzene, hexanes, MEK, MIBK, acetone and certain alcohols to reduce emissions from a paint manufacturing facility in Eugene, Oregon. The initial biofilter installed was ...


  • Composting of municipal green waste using a hybrid Mode of the aerated static pile

    The aerated static pile (ASP) system developed in Rutgers University (Finstein et al., 1980) is based on a deep understanding of composting as a microbial process. It allows for a good degree of process control and high organic matter stabilisation rates, with relatively low labour and cost. For these reasons, the ASP system has been intensively studied with, among others, the following aims: ...

  • Latest analytical technology ensures biogas efficiency

    Anaerobic Digestion (AD) relies on the ability of specific micro-organisms to convert organic material into a gas that can be used to generate electricity. However, these bacteria require specific conditions if they are to function effectively and instrumentation specialist company HACH LANGE has developed a range of online, portable and laboratory instruments that have enabled a large number of ...


  • Nature’s Own - Biofiltration process offers promise of (near) energy-free pollution abatement

    A filter could be described as any substance through which liquid is passed to remove suspended impurities. Although a “biofilter” is actually not a filter, “biofiltration” is on the threshold of finding a market as a compliance solution for air pollution regulations after a number of false starts. Biofilters have long been used as a means for reducing objectionable odors in Germany, the ...


  • Industrial Biotechnology: Coordinated Framework Make-Over and Lots More

    The summer of 2015 was surprisingly busy in the industrial biotechnology policy and regulatory arenas with three important announcements generating lots of buzz. On July 2, 2015, theWhite House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the US Trade Representative, and the Council on Environmental Quality issued a memorandum directing the US ...
