  • An Infrastructure Grows · Decentralized Treatment and Recycling Domestic Wastewater

    THE TERM, “decentralized waste-water management,” refers to the process of treating and discharging treated wastewater in the local vicinity where it is generated. Decentralized systems typically use the soil as the final receptor of the treated wastewater instead of discharging to surface waters, which are generally the receptors of treated wastewater from larger centralized treatment plants. ...


  • Importing environmental technologies to China

    By mid-2007, the Shuikoushan Non-Ferrous Metal factory in Hunan Province faced a crisis. As part of its 11th Five-Year Plan (2005-2010), the Chinese government was closing down high-polluting factories–and the Shuikoushan factory was among those at risk. The 110 year-old state-owned factory, with a gross annual income of more than US $1 billion and 12,000 employees, was emitting high levels of ...

  • The Clean Energy Voyage

    The United Nations Climate Convention meeting in Warsaw, Poland, comes with less than two years to go for governments to deliver on their promise of a universal new agreement by 2015 - this is the time for ambition rather than caution to define the international climate negotiations. We have in some ways been here before: the Copenhagen UN climate conference was also scheduled to deliver a ...

  • Retrofit for the future project - funded by the technology strategy board

    A terraced house in Birmingham was refurbished with a target to cut heating bills by at least £1,000 a year and CO2 by 80%. The project aimed to address specific barriers to large scale low carbon housing retrofit. Measures to improve the energy efficiency of the house were carried out such as the application of exterior wall cladding and the installation of solar PV. Encraft will monitor ...

  • 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 ...


  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Biomethane enters the gas grid article for energy world

    The Carbon Plan, published in 2011, aims to reduce UK carbon emissions by a quarter from 1990 levels. With the current policies in place, the UK is on target to reduce emissions by over a third by 2020 and with the introduction of new technologies this should increase to an 80% reduction by 2050. However, currently around half the UK’s carbon emissions result from heat related processes and ...

  • How the UK could save £8 Billion per Annum

    We know that buildings use about (40)% of all energy use and we also know that the energy efficiency of buildings can be greatly improved, often just by better monitoring and controls with low capex and fast paybacks. Savings of 20% or more can often be achieved by better control strategies and recommissioning. New design techniques such as integrative design of whole building retrofits can ...

  • What’s geothermal again?

    Some green energy sources seem to have charisma; others struggle for public attention with little success. Solar energy is an “it” technology, as evidenced once again by the tremendous participation in the annual Solar Power International conference in Anaheim, California this week (Oct. 27-29). Twice as many companies (945) are displaying their wares in the Expo Hall this year, despite the still ...
