  • Risk governance advances in Europe across radioactive waste and other risk fields

    We present in this work the current advances in European risk governance across several risk fields. First, the general picture of risk governance is introduced, along with the goals and structure of the Riskbridge research project. Then, a summary of five of the six risk fields considered for that project is provided in a risk governance perspective: biotechnology/stem cells, nanotechnology, ...

  • Mental health status of employees in substations of electromagnetic fields at extremely low frequency in tehran

    Today with the industrialization of communities, electromagnetic fields have much more intensively entered to human life and work place. Increasing number of these fields may account for studying the potential development of biological system impairments much more robustly than before. The impacts of unwanted exposures to such fields have been addressed in the literature, but studying on the ...

  • Electric and magnetic fields as possible risk factors for human health

    Modern society is exposed daily to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated by home/environmental human activity. The question of the possible risk to health by long-term exposure to weak fields became a concern in that even small health effects could have profound public health implications. The knowledge of the biological effects of electromagnetic fields still contains certain gaps which should ...

  • Precautionary local politics and coping with risks of radiofrequency fields in Spain

    In Spain, there is significant opposition to the building of new base stations for cell phone communications. Since 1999, this situation has led most local councils to declare a moratorium on new aerials in cities and villages. In the meantime, following European Union recommendations, state agencies developed several regulatory norms and laws, and asked for scientific evidence about their ...

  • Lightning protection optimization for large wind turbines

    Electro-magnetic fields adjacent to the lightning current path in wind turbine generators are analyzed. The method of moments is used to analytically describe the transient distributed electro-magnetic field caused by a lightning strike. A simulation tool using the method of moments is presented. The electromagnetic field distribution during a lightning strike in a wind turbine hub is analyzed in ...

  • White paper on Willowstick technology used for mapping and modeling groundwater systems

    1.0 Introduction Willowstick Technology (the “Technology”) delineates and characterizes subsurface aqueous systems in complex hydrogeologic settings. It has consistently proven valuable in: 1) the diagnosis of seepage through earthen dams and levees; 2) characterizing groundwater infiltration into surface and subsurface mines; 3) tracking pollution plumes influenced by ...

  • Helplessly exposed to nature? How lightning storms can be measured

    Each day, there occur about 1,000 thunderstorms with 4-10 million lightning bolts worldwide. In average, 700 people per year are hit by such light discharges, of which 75% of the hits result in long-term damages. Between three and seven cases end fatal. The risk is particularly high in the open field and is fortunately decreasing. The reason for this is that we stay more often inside in cars and ...

  • Non-Ionising Radiation

    Pressures on the environment may occur through chemical, physical and biological agents. The subject of this study is physical agents, where physical fields are examined. Physical fields are part of the natural environment. Depending upon their properties and the surrounding conditions, physical fields are transmitted through the spaces in which we live, potentially affecting human health and ...

  • Environment and Health

    Public concerns, evidence from research and increasing scientific knowledge are all driving widespread discussions on environment and health problems. The issue of environment and health is characterised by multi-causality with different strengths of association. This means that the links between exposures and their health consequences depend on the environmental pollutants and diseases being ...

  • Environmental-Rating: Deutsche Telekom and Nippon Tel. & Tel. Lead the Way

    Deutsche Telekom and NTT Stand Out in the First Environmental Check of the Telecommunications Industry Deutsche Telekom AG and Nippon Telegraph & Telephone (NTT) are both first in an independent Environmental-Rating of 16 telecommunication companies from eleven countries carried out by the Munich-based rating agency ökom. Both companies received the grade C+ and therefore stood out against ...

  • What’s New? Maximizing The Life Of Aging Metallic Pipelines With Modern In-Line Technology

    Maximizing the life of aging pipelines has long been a challenge in North America. Owners of large diameter water and wastewater infrastructure face particular condition assessment challenges, owing to factors such as financial constraints, environmental concerns and access restrictions, which compound the problem. While desktop studies can help identify pipes with a likelihood and consequence of ...

  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...

  • Ping-Ping, What’s That Sound? Acoustic Fiber Optic Technology Helps Identify Problematic Water Mains

    With the deteriorating state of many aging water mains found in cities across North America, urbanites are frequently witnessing unexpected plumes of water erupt as man-made geysers in their own metropolitan backyards. While natural geysers are awe inspiring, urban geysers are much less so, due to their destruction to property, roads and the environment. Because an uninterrupted water flow is the ...

  • Vibrating feeders for stockpiling and reclaim

    The expanding applications of vibratory feeders for controlling the flow of bulk materials, and their adaptation for processing requirements, have developed considerable interest in stockpiling and reclaim systems. The general design of these units consists of a material transporting trough, or platform, driven by a vibratory force system. The flexibility and variety of designs is limited only by ...

  • QuadOa and OGI: how EPA regulations are changing the way we look at gas leaks

    Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published Regulation 40 CFR, Part 60, Sub-part OOOOa, commonly known as Quad Oa, and finally brought optical gas imaging (OGI) firmly into the mainstream. This presents a major shift in the way fugitive emissions are regulated, and the technology that can be used.  Detecting and acting on gas leaks is naturally a major ...
