  • Environmental impacts of aquifer thermal energy storage investigated by field and laboratory experiments

    Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) uses groundwater to store energy for heating or cooling purposes in the built environment. This paper presents field and laboratory results aiming to elucidate the effects that ATES operation may have on chemical groundwater quality. Field data from an ATES site in the south of the Netherlands show that ATES results in chemical quality perturbations due to ...

  • Health, Safety and Environmental Risks of Underground Co2 Storage – Overview of Mechanisms and Current

    CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in geological reservoirs may be part of a strategy to reduce global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Insight in the risks associated with underground CO2 storage is needed to ensure that it can be applied as safe and effective greenhouse mitigation option. This paper aims to give an overview of the current (gaps in) knowledge of risks associated with underground CO2 ...

  • Driving business through data

    Tim Dowling of AEA Technology looks at the increasing use of technology by environmental managers and examines what that means for the future of information management.Environmental managers have been relatively slow to use new technology to help them carry out data gathering, storage, analysis and reporting, but now scrutiny is greater, and responsibilities are broader, they are finding a ...


  • Weather Data for Noise Monitoring

    “Weather conditions are the single largest variable factor in how sound travels over large distances,” says Steve Bilawchuk principal partner and engineer at ACI Acoustical Consultants Inc. “Wind speed and wind direction are of crucial importance.” ACI is an acoustical engineering consulting company based in Alberta, Canada, which uses ...

  • Environmental protection

    An analysis of the lighting industry shows a significant shift from the use of incandescent bulbs to fluorescent bulbs. Incandescent bulbs use more fossil fuel energy, cost more and are less effective than fluorescent bulbs, which produce more lumens. Usage of fluorescent bulbs, however, is not entirely without risk because they contain mercury, a chemical compound that can have debilitating ...

  • Bridge Height Limits Transport of Cl02 Storage Tanks

    Located in Northern Ontario on the Trans Canada Highway is a bridge that enables pedestrians and vehicles to cross the Spanish River. The bridge itself holds no place in the annals of Canadian history. It is in fact, quite unremarkable as a typical bridge found in the area. However, the Spanish River Bridge represented a major problem for an engineering project rquired by a local Bleach Pulp ...

  • Leveraging Chemical Data to Manage Risk

    Even if chemicals aren’t central to your business, their hazards are likely pervasive across your supply chain. In fact, chemicals are one of the primary drivers of environmental, health and safety risk in virtually every organization. Both EPA and OSHA provide regulatory guidance based on the types and quantities of chemicals present at your facility. The Department of Transportation and ...

  • Electronic Chain of Custody (COC) in Environmental Data Management using the LSPECS upgrade for ESdat

    Summary As electronic information can be easily altered, a chain of custody ensures that the data presented is "as originally acquired" and has not been tampered with during the copying process or during analysis. When using ESdat Environmental Data Management System, all data is tracked and backed up electronically; there is no scope for transcription errors or loss of paper based ...

  • Visualizing the stories data can tell

    Scientists and technologists are turning numbers about everything from condors to ocean-floor contours into visual representations of environmental issues. We’re living in an era of Big Data, but too often it’s nothing more than a fire hose of numbers and data sets that most would have difficulty understanding. Increasingly, though, entities such as non-governmental ...

  • Supply chain compliance and data quality

    What is supply chain compliance? For different disciplines it might mean different things. From an EH&S perspective it is a relatively new concept where a particular company has responsibility up and down their supply chain for the compliance of their raw materials, finished goods, as well was what has been done for their end users and of course end of life, disposal or take back, ...

  • The Phase 1 Environmental Assessment

    In today’s world where every property is subject to potential environmental risks a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment or ESA is an appropriate action to take. An ESA can help determine if the property has been contaminated by previous or current activities. The ESA can help protect the purchaser of a property from environmental risks prior to the closing on a property.  Lenders ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...
