  • Hazardous waste sites and property values: a French case study in the light of US analyses

    This paper aims to evaluate the impact of a polluted site on property values by using the hedonic price method. The case study concerns a lead foundry in a previously industrialised area in northern France. The results are fairly convincing. The impact is confirmed, but appears to be especially apparent at relatively close distances. More than one mile away, the impact is much weaker. Moreover, a ...

  • Asbestos Awareness: Preventing a Hazardous Workplace

    Many on-the-job hazards are obvious... leaking machinery... dangerous chemicals... slippery floors. However, other hazards aren't so obvious. There may be no visible signals that they are present at all. That's why Asbestos is often known as 'the silent killer.' While you often can't see, taste or smell it..., prolonged periods of exposure to Asbestos can cause lung disease, cancer... even death. ...


  • CO2 Gas Hazards in the Brewing Industry

    The hazards associated with CO2 in the brewing industry are well known, yet people still die needlessly every year in tragic and completely avoidable accidents in breweries. Just last year in Germany, which has a good safety record, two workers died in separate incidents at the same brewery. In the first incident, the owner was found dead with his head and torso in a beer mixing tank. It is ...

  • Hazardous Material and Asbestos Inspection Case Study

    Global has been contracted by the Genesee County Land Bank Authority (GCLBA) to complete pre-demolition hazardous material and asbestos inspections on blighted structures located in the City of Flint beginning in 2002 and continuing through the present. In March and November 2013, Global was awarded multiple contracts from GCLBA, which utilize MBEG and HHF funding sources to eliminate blight and ...

  • The risky business of resource recovery

    Waste management operations, like any transport business, have many risks attached to them and all operators should avoid the “Dodgy Brothers” ignore-the-risks to save costs approach! Any transport business with large vehicles working in tight city and site access areas is prone to accidents and near miss incidents. Add to that the hazards of working with lifting, loading and compacting systems. ...

  • Survey of standards related to gas detectors

    Recent events both on- and off-shore shine a bright light on the need for attention to safety and to hazard reduction, prevention, and mitigation. Errant combustible or toxic gases can injure and kill quickly. Therefore, mitigation of these hazards must be fast and sure. Globally, governmental and regional authorities take gas detection and system integration very seriously and require that the ...

  • Advanced engineering for ATEX solutions

    The process of disinfecting water with UV light is a proven technology for drinking and process water in many industries, however the high standards required by the offshore industry command these systems to be engineered way beyond the normal specification of many manufacturers.

  • Got deteriorating asbestos cement water mains?

    Asbestos has come to be one of the most feared words and materials in the world. Yet, in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, more than 600,000 miles of asbestos cement– also called transite – used for its light weight, corrosion resistance, rigidity, ease of handling and installation was installed to handle water throughout the United States. Applications included potable water mains, storm ...

  • Solar Energy Sector Poised to be Upgraded With Tin-Based Cells
