  • Why Choose An MBBR Bioreactor to Optimize Your Sewage Treatment Process

    In both municipal and industrial settings, dealing with the organic matter in wastewater can be difficult. As regulations for treated wastewater become more and more stringent, municipalities and commercial/industrial organizations are looking for technology that can meet environmental demands. For organic materials, one of the most effective methods of treatment is integrating a biological ...

  • Micro Pulse LiDAR: A Critical Tool for Emissions Source Detection

    Micro Pulse LiDAR remote sensing data are used to calculate a highly accurate Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) height to improve plume models that help assess emissions sources. ...

  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Multiple Instruments Work Together for a Better View of Air Quality

    Accurately identifying and quantifying particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere is key to determining air quality. Researchers are particularly interested in PM that have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers because they are believed to contribute to heart and lung disease in humans and animals. These tiny particles are invisible to the naked eye and originate from power plants, fires, and ...

  • Cradle to cradle: the birth of an ‘upcycling’ vision

    Reuse and recycling sit at the very heart of a theory that is gaining increasing credibility in environmental, political and business circles. The so-called ‘cradle-to-cradle’ philosophy allows for growth - while at the same time asserting that this should be ‘good’ growth based on a minimal ecological footprint. Blue-chip multi-nationals such as Nike and Ford Motor Company are already coming up ...
