  • Turning waste into wattage

    How we are helping to meet the growing demand for waste energy recovery It’s a sign of the times that more and more companies and organisations are now looking at ways to capitalise on the waste material their production process produces rather than having to pay a third part to take it away for them.  One reason of course is the high cost of scrappage.  Another is the ...

  • How to investigate mercury in the oceans?

    Mercury is a highly toxic metal that affects the environment and can endanger people's health, as a powerful neurotoxin. The combustion of coal, waste and fuel are releasing hundreds of tons of heavy metal into the atmosphere annually, and its sediment enters to soil and water. Mercury measurements are part of the EU project "Global Mercury Observation System". The long-term goal of this ...

  • Control Algae and Improve the Water Quality in Waste Stabilization Ponds

    Due to population growth, accelerated urbanisation and economic development, the quantity of waste water generated is increasing globally. Mainly in low-income areas, a large proportion of the waste water is discharged directly in the environment. When the waste water is treated, the treatment plants may not remove certain pollutants that can have a negative impact on the people and ecosystem. ...

  • The Environmental Assessment Process

    The Pollution Prevention and Abatement Handbook is intended to be used principally as input to the World Bank Group’s Environmental Assessment (EA) processes. This note outlines the key features of the EA procedure for World Bank projects. The IFC and MIGA follow the same overall policies but have somewhat different environmental analyses and review procedures (for details contact IFC’s or MIGA’s ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Institutional trust, information processing and perception of environmental cancer risk

    This paper examines how institutional trust affects the way in which people process information and perceive risk. Data come from a study of risk perception in the circumstance of US state health department investigations of suspected cancer clusters, with 30 cases examined (n = 1,111). Trust is assessed for three information sources: state health departments, civic groups and industries involved ...

  • Microbiological leaching of chalcopyrite: an environmentally sound approach to processing a sulphide copper concentrate

    Mineral sulphides are the main source of copper, from which this metal is recovered by pyrometallurgical processing after a flotation procedure. These processes generate high emissions of SO2 gases, which, in many cases, are discharged into the environment. The bioleaching method had been successfully used in copper recovery from low grade and secondary sulphide ores. Only recently, has it ...

  • Environmental knowledge creation and management process: formalisation, diffusion and valorisation model

    To integrate the environment in product design is neither a recent processing method nor an original one. However, one can easily note that in spite of all declarations made in this domain, it remains difficult to know and to evaluate the environmental qualities of a product, and therefore to know a fortiori if this product is "better" or not than another one. Without separating the ...
