  • Why evaluate hydraulic fluid compatibility?

    When introducing a new control fluid to hydraulic systems, it is important to ensure that the new liquid or mixture is of equal or superior quality to the previous fluid. If the new mixture is incompatible, precipitate may form and result in an overall inferior fluid. This can speed up clogging or damage the system. When a manufacturer of construction machinery releases a new line of bulldozers ...

  • The process and mechanism of urban environmental change: an evolutionary view

    This paper discusses how an evolutionary viewpoint can contribute to the understanding of the processes and mechanisms of urban environmental change. There are four major components in the urban environmental evolution concept: (a) cities can be viewed as complex systems that are subject to constant change, which constitutes a dynamic evolutionary process; (b) urban environmental profiles of ...

  • Environmentally Friendly Recycling Process for Plastics and Rubber Recovery

     Abstract A quantized converter of the potential energy of a fluid or a free-flowing mass located in a natural or an artificial storage, which should always be situated at a higher level than the aforementioned converter in the accepted geodesic coordinate system. In contrast to the known converters, such as the water runner (turbine), operating in continuous regime and transforming ...


  • Environmental pollution generated from process industries in Bangladesh

    The sources of environmental pollution in process industries in Bangladesh are discussed. Total pollution load into environment (i.e., into air, water and land) generated from process industries is determined and presented using industrial pollution projection system (IPPS) developed by the World Bank. Most polluting industries in Bangladesh are identified and ranked. The projection of this ...

  • Simultaneous treatment of environmental and financial risk in process design

    In this paper, we propose a new measure for environmental risk and discuss a way of considering it simultaneously with financial risk. Instead of using single numbers to define environmental risk, we propose to use the cumulative probability of emissions, similarly to the cumulative distributions of profit used for financial risk. We also propose to use a risk surface as a generalisation of the ...

  • Integration of environmental issues in the firm: learning processes and coordination

    This paper considers the extent to which the organisational structure of the firm influences the perception and the integration of environmental problems. Environmental economists who have been concerned for many decades with market failures, and more recently with regulation failures, still commonly assume that firms operate efficiently. It is our contention that there is a third institution ...

  • Environmental toxicity and radioactivity assessment of a titanium processing residue with potential for environmental use

    Thorough examination of the physico‐chemical characteristics of a Ti processing residue was undertaken including mineralogical, geochemical, and radiochemical characterisation, and an investigation of the environmental toxicity of softwater leachate generated from the residue. Concentrations of most metals measured in the leachate were low; thus, the residue is unlikely to leach high levels of ...

  • Processes that Bind

    The 'triple bottom line' (1) is rapidly gaining recognition as a framework for measuring business performance. In its broadest sense, the triple bottom line captures the spectrum of values that organizations must embrace - economic, environmental and social. In practical terms, the triple bottom line means expanding the traditional company reporting framework to take into account not just ...

  • A process to reconcile priorities among agencies responsible for environmental health risks

    Government agencies responsible for environmental protection need a process that establishes priorities among competing issues. Examples are described, drawing particularly on the experience of the US Environmental Protection Agency. Prioritisation systems should have certain characteristics responsiveness to the various agencies' mandates, flexibility, discriminatory power, transparency and ...

  • Environmental impacts assessment of industrial estate providing with managerial process

     “The existence of balance, coordination and required order among natural elements, is one of the key factors in the ecosystem. If this balance is disturbed under certain circumstances, it will damage the structure of living existences and more specifically the human beings. Since a half century ago, factors such as important economical and industrial activities, advance technologies ...

  • Integrating environmental considerations into land planning and development process for sustainable development in Malaysia

    Land development activities are undeniably one of the major causes of environmental pollution. However with proper environmental protection measures, environmental pollution and degradation can be greatly reduced. Many are of the opinion that these two processes, land development and environmental protection should be integrated into the land development process as both land development and ...


  • Application of dispersion models in the environmental assessment process in the United Kingdom

    The UK planning process has traditionally been separated from the licensing process as far as industry is concerned. Implementation of the Environmental Assessment Directive (85/337/EEC) has therefore been the responsibility of planners, not pollution regulators. This is one of the reasons why there are no formalised procedures for using dispersion models in the environmental assessment ...

  • A critical process analysis of wine production to improve cost, quality and environmental performance

    ABSTRACTWine production in South Africa is delocalised, with numerous small-to-medium sized producers within several regions within the Western Cape. Whilst adapting to new technological changes, producers have to respond to pressure from consumers and governments regarding the environmental consequences of winemaking, especially water usage and pollution. To date, no systematic analysis ...

  • Novel environmental friendly process for reducing the sulphur level in fuel: pervaporation

    Pervaporation (PV) is an alternative membrane-based process for removal of sulphuric components with low energy consumption. In PV, selective removal bases on the concentration difference between two sides of membrane. In sulphur removal process hydrophobic membranes are generally used due to the flexible chain structure. If the solution parameters and polarities of membranes are close to the ...
