  • Comparing electrochemical disinfection with chlorination for inactivation of bacterial spores in drinking water

    Drinking water disinfection techniques without the dosage of chemicals are regarded as more advantageous in terms of costs and practical use. Here we investigated the efficacy of electrochemical disinfection for inactivation of Bacillus subtilis spores – a model microorganism of highly resistant pathogens. The effect of electrochemical disinfection with ...

  • Efficient reduction of chemical oxygen demand in industrial wastewaters

    Depending on the industry activity and the situation, maximum chemical oxygen demand (COD) levels between 200 and 1000 mgO2/l (ppmO2) must be reached in order to release the wastewaters back into the environment [1]. Wastewater treat-ment technologies, such as filtration, biological digestion, or incineration exist but these technologies are either expensive or generate sludges which must be ...


  • US work on technical and economic aspects of electrolytic, thermochemical, and hybrid processes for hydrogen production at temperatures below 550°C

    Hydrogen demand is increasing, but there are few options for affordable hydrogen production free of greenhouse gas emissions. Nuclear power is one of the most promising options. Most research is focused on high-temperature electrolytic and thermochemical processes for nuclear-generated hydrogen, but it will be many years before very high temperature reactors become commercially available. For ...

  • Fixed Versus Portable Gas Detection – Which Is Better?

    Did you know that workers are needlessly injured every year as a result of leaking toxic or combustible substances? Such incidents are known to involve a wide range of hazardous gases (including ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, hydrocarbon vapors and so on). The sad reality is that most of these accidents are avoidable if only the workplace is adequately monitored. This leads ...

    Des Moines Water Works (DMWW) plays a key role in providing the city of Des Moines and other communities in central Iowa with a safe, clean and healthy water supply. The DMWW operates two water treatment plants in central Iowa, one on Fleur Drive in Des Moines and the second one at Maffitt Reservoir, located southwest of the metropolitan area. Des Moines Water Works is an independently operated ...

  • Is your Plant as tight as you think? Leak Detector for extremely toxic Gases, a Field Test Report

    Leak detection of commodity gases in chemical plants is a day-to-day practice. The sensor technology available for this application is field proven and reliable. No question about it, existing sensors will do the job. However, in plants manufacturing or handling extremely toxic substances, the picture is different. For example, take phosgene. The existing sensor technology for leak detection ...

  • Gas Monitoring for Ventilation Control and Energy Management

    The growing demand for underground and enclosed parking and maintenance garages (resulting from limitations on land availability) has increased the awareness and need for proper ventilation and control systems. In addition, increased health and safety programs have only added to the concerns of toxic and combustible gases in confined or enclosed spaces. Historically, ventilation and make-up air ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...
