  • Environment Agency Environmental Management Quality Protocols: converting waste into non-waste products

    Many organisations are unaware of how waste impacts their bottom line. The EU Waste Framework Directive outlines 5 core steps for dealing with waste and when ranked according their environmental impact, they make up the ‘waste hierarchy’. With an increase in demand for resources and increasing input costs, businesses could benefit substantially from adopting the waste ...

  • Efficient light bulbs are also affected by variations in brightness caused by the mains

    Until now the new lighting technologies, in other words, more energy-efficient lamps,have been assumed to be less sensitive than the incandescent bulbs to voltage fluctuations in the electrical power supply, one of the most striking disturbances. The research group Signal and Communications Group (GSC) of the UPV/EHU’s Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao has conducted a thorough analysis of ...

  • Theoretical operation of high-efficiency ultraviolet water treatment chamber

    The NeoTech Aqua ReFleX water purification chambers are the most efficient and compact units  available today. They require an order of magnitude less energy and less than 25% of the system  volume to achieve the same or better purification result as competing chambers. This is the first in a  series of three white papers explaining the benefits of these systems. This paper ...

  • Energy and Environment in the European Union

    Introduction Energy gives personal comfort and mobility to people, and is essential for the generation of industrial, commercial and societal wealth. On the other hand, energy production and consumption (including heat and electricity production, oil refining and final uses in households, services, industry and transport) place considerable pressures on the environment. These pressures include ...
