  • EU Battery Directive moves a step closer

    The new EU Battery Directive is taking shape in readiness for its formal adoption, probably later this summer. However, battery recyclers and manufacturers still have some concerns about the proposed text, notably in relation to exemptions, recycling efficiencies, capacity labelling of batteries and the funding of public awareness campaigns aimed at maximising collections. In early May, ...

  • Bredel 65 pumps eliminates AODD pump issues at major lithium battery plant

    Bredel 65 hose pumps from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group are now providing constant efficiency in ball-milling processes at a high-volume battery plant in China. Previously, ball milling was being compromised by a poorly performing AODD (air-operated double diaphragm) pump used for high-viscosity slurry recirculation. Reduced flow/efficiency and leaks were proving disruptive ...

  • Using a direct method to characterize and measure flows of municipal solid waste in the United States

    ABSTRACTAlthough there are a myriad of sources of municipal solid waste (MSW) data in the United States, much of thesedata are not transparent and are also extremely difficult to find. In addition, the two major methods of quantifyingnational MSW flows—the BioCycle State of Garbage in America and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)/Franklin Associates’ MSW “Facts and Figures” ...

  • SAP Recycling Administration (REA)

    Recycling Management is growing ever more demanding. Legal requirements, coupled with an increasing awareness of the environment, have confronted modern enterprises with a completely new challenge. In Europe, packaging waste, disposed batteries and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives requires manufacturers for the correct disposal and recycling of their waste products. ...

  • Cleo Springs, Oklahoma - in-situ chemical oxidation case study

    A gasoline spill occurred when a fuel tanker was forced off this curve in rural Oklahoma. Initial responders were unsuccessful in their effort to remove all of the contaminated soil. Cedar Creek Engineering was contracted to remediate the residual soil and groundwater contamination. Here a recovery well and reagent injection points are installed. The treatment process called for Fenton's reagent ...

  • Electronic Water Meter For Leakage Repair - Case Study

    Every year, EMS (Energy Management System) produces and markets smart electronic water meters (domestic/ bulk), wireless transmission data logger (GSM/ GPRS), and advanced AMR (Automatic Metering Reading) systems. Unlike traditional mechanical water meter, the magnet-free electronic smart water meter with class C (CNS 14866) metrological performance can maintain 12 years battery lifespan. With a ...

  • Expert opinion on toxicity profiling – report from a NORMAN expert group meeting

    This paper describes the outcome and follow‐up discussions of an expert group meeting (Amsterdam, October 9th, 2009) on the applicability of toxicity profiling for diagnostic environmental risk assessment. A toxicity profile was defined as a toxicological “fingerprint” of a sample, ranging from a pure compound to a complex mixture, obtained by testing the sample or its extract for its activity ...

  • Weather Data for Noise Monitoring

    “Weather conditions are the single largest variable factor in how sound travels over large distances,” says Steve Bilawchuk principal partner and engineer at ACI Acoustical Consultants Inc. “Wind speed and wind direction are of crucial importance.” ACI is an acoustical engineering consulting company based in Alberta, Canada, which uses ...

  • Grounding equipment can prevent costly repairs

    Every remote environmental monitoring station should include a plan for an Earth Ground. All sensors, loggers and telemetry devices should be bonded, or connected, to the Earth Ground in order to protect instrument circuitry from damage due to changes in electric potential. Electric potential is defined as the difference in electrical energy between two points and is typically measured in volts ...

  • TDS-3: making waves
