  • Vibration testing of a carbon composite fuselage

    This paper describes the details of an experimental investigation focusing on the vibration characteristics of a composite fuselage structure of an ultralight unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The UAV has a total empty weight of 70.3 kg and 6.3 m in length. The fuselage structure consists of the fuselage body with an integrated vertical stabiliser. All structural components are fabricated from ...

  • Explaining the construction of global carbon markets: REDD+ as a test case?

    Market–based instruments increasingly shape international environmental governance. Against this background, this paper puts forward a conceptual framework on the development of regulated global carbon markets. Regarding the adoption of carbon trading as an instance of wider shifts in governance allows us to benefit from the rich literature on (international) institutional change. At the same ...

  • Testing monolithic activated carbon adsorbers for in-line removal of organic micropollutants

    Anthropogenic organic micropollutants (OMP) occur along the whole urban water cycle including drinking water. Various OMP can be efficiently adsorbed onto activated carbon. In the present study a commercial monolithic adsorber (MA), originally developed for gas treatment, was examined for the removal of OMP from drinking water. As a promising advantage, the adsorber can be introduced into ...

  • Carbon Dating in Oxford

    Several members of our team visited the Archaeology Department (RLAHA) at the University of Oxford recently, to discover how some of our products were being used at the University. Interestingly, they were informed that our presses were part of the carbon dating process for bones. The Department receive bones that have been founnd by archeologists in excavations or sometimes by ...

  • Carbon capture and clusters

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS ) announcements in 2013 were quiet – yet the award of funding to the White Rose project in early December was an encouraging sign that UK CCS momentum remains undeterred, explains Sam Botterill, CCS Technical Manager, Energy Institute. Christmas did not only come early for the White Rose project, more commonly referred to as Drax Power’s CCS Project, ...

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) Versus Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

    Carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are often mistaken for one another. Both gases are odourless and colorless and target the cardiovascular system. Both gases can enter the body through inhalation, skin and / or eye. Similar symptoms that both gases have in common are headaches, dizziness, seizures, and hallucination. Most people have a hard time determining the difference and do not ...

  • A comparative study of three different assimilable organic carbon (AOC) methods: results of a round-robin test

    Easily assimilable organic carbon (AOC) is frequently used for the assessment of the biological stability of drinking water, which is an important consideration in the control of bacterial growth in distribution networks. The first AOC bioassay was developed in 1982 and is based on growth of two bacterial strains (Pseudomonas fluorescens P17 and Spirillum spp. NOX) in ...

  • The Many Uses of Activated Carbon

    Activated carbon is processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption. It has applications in the medical, environmental and energy realms, among others. Since 1962, ASTM Committee D28 on Activated Carbon has developed standards that play a pre-eminent role in how activated carbon is used. A D28 ...

  • New Guide to Carbon Pricing Leadership

    At a special event on the margins of COP21, Heads of State put the spotlight on carbon pricing as a necessary and effective measure to tackle the climate change challenge. Together with a global agreement, a sufficient price for carbon ...

  • Ocean carbon: A dent in the iron hypothesis

    Oceanographers Jim Bishop and Todd Wood of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have measured the fate of carbon particles originating in plankton blooms in the Southern Ocean, using data that deep-diving Carbon Explorer floats collected around the clock for well over a year. Their study reveals that most of the carbon from lush plankton blooms never reaches the ...

  • Toxicity of carbon nanotubes to freshwater aquatic invertebrates

    Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are hydrophobic in nature and thus tend to accumulate in sediments if released into aquatic environments. As part of our overall effort to examine the toxicity of carbon‐based nanomaterials to sediment‐dwelling invertebrates, we have evaluated the toxicity of different types of CNTs in 14‐d water‐only exposures to amphipods (Hyalella azteca), midges (Chironomus dilutus), ...

  • Lynn L. Bergeson Quoted In Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report Article “Paper Waste Spurs Testing of Low-Cost Carbon Fiber for Products”

    On August 28, 2017, Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), was quoted by the Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report discussing Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) regulatory concerns for carbon fiber with a lignin. Since the lignin-PAN carbon fiber under development does not yet involve the use of carbon nanofibers, Washington State University's Ahring ...

  • In-Vehicle exposures to particulate matter and black carbon

    ABSTRACTIn-vehicle exposures to particulate matter (PM) and black carbon (BC) can be a significant part of personal totalexposure. The purpose of this study was to identify determinants of the in-vehicle pollutant level. This study measured in-vehicle exposure to PM number concentrations using an aerosol spectrometer and BC concentration by an aethalometer. The measurement was repeated 3 ...

  • Some determinants of carbon dioxide emissions in Bangladesh

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, industrial output growth, population growth and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in Bangladesh for 1972–2008 are found non–stationary in terms of both Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) and Kwiatkowski, Phillips, Schmidt and Shin (KPSS) tests with different orders of integration. As a result, the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) model and ...

  • TOC System Suitability Test for Sterile Water

    The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) specifies that total organic carbon (TOC) content be used for management of organic impurity values permitted in bulk purified water, water for injection, in addition to sterile purified water and sterile water for injection. According to USP, TOC analyzers to be used for sterile water must satisfy the TOC system suitability test using test water ...

  • EPA Proposes SNUR for Functionalized Carbon Nanotubes (Generic)

    On October 27, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed significant new use rules (SNUR) for three chemical substances that were the subject of premanufacture notices (PMN), including functionalized carbon nanotubes (generic). According to the notice, the PMN states that the substance will be used as a thin film for electronic device applications. Based on structure-activity ...

  • Carbon capture plans need urgent aid

    Governments may no longer be investing in the capture of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But a new study says that doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea. It argues that the world just needs to think harder and spend more to make the technology work because, to contain climate change, it may prove the only realistic and affordable way to dramatically reduce carbon ...
