  • MAXUM II - Perfect on-line gasoline analysis using the MAXUM II process gas chromatograph – Case Study

    Gasoline is a petroleum-derived liquid and primarily used as fuel in combustion engines. The analysis of gasoline for its chemical composition is extremely important as e. g. the concentration of individual hydrocarbons determines the octane number as well as the emission characteristics of gasoline. Therefore, great efforts are made to serve producers of gasoline with an efficient tool for ...

  • Composting releases less air pollution than previously thought - study

    A new study funded by the California Integrated Waste Board (CIWMB) indicates that well-managed composting of green waste and food waste releases significantly less air pollution than previously thought. The study also demonstrates that a relatively inexpensive management technique - covering active compost piles with a layer of finished compost - may lower air emissions even further, by as ...

  • Three models of social change

    Can we change fast enough? When thinking about the enormous need for social change as we attempt to move the world economy onto a sustainable path, I find it useful to look at various models of change. Three stand out. One is the catastrophic event model, which I call the Pearl Harbor model, where a dramatic event fundamentally changes how we think and behave. The second model is one where a ...

  • Sample Handling Strategies for Accurate Lead-In-Soil Measurements in the Field and Laboratory

    ABSTRACT The inhomogenous lead-in-soil matrix can present serious obstacles to accurate sample collection and handling. In typical lead-in-soil measurement, particle size related errors in sampling and sample handling often exceed all other sources of error. The magnitude of error can vary widely depending on the particulate nature of the lead contaminant and the effectiveness of control ...
