  • SPERCS – a tool for environmental emission estimation

    The EU chemicals regulation REACH requires a hazardous substance registration to identify the uses of a substance and the corresponding conditions of safe use. This includes a human and an environmental safety assessment. Exposure scenarios are developed and employed for estimating emissions resulting from the uses of hazardous substances. To support the environmental assessments, the REACH ...

  • PID in industrial hygiene

    Industrial (or occupational) hygiene places the emphasis on prevention of ill health from work, through recognising, evaluating and controlling the risks. For anyone working with hazardous compounds, these chemicals represent a significant potential source of risk. Modern PID instruments provide reliable detection of over 200 of the most dangerous chemicals, helping to ensure effective industrial ...

  • Vapor-Phase Biofilters Show Promise for Treating High VOC Emissions.

    Evaluating the Feasibility of Natural AttenuationUsing natural attenuation to remediate organic compounds in groundwater has gained popularity. In some cases, this process can reduce contaminant levels to below risk-based corrective action criteria or regulatory standards without implementing additional remedial action alternatives. However, it is often difficult to prove that natural ...

  • U.S. desalination industry grows since 2000; seen as essential to meeting supply needs

    With supplies of clean water becoming more scarce in certain areas and demand increasing, desalination is on the rise in the United States, water professionals told BNA. Half again as many municipal desalination plants were built between 2000 and 2010 as were built in the preceding three decades, according to research by water sector consultant Mike Mickley that was published in 2012 in the IDA ...

  • Analytical Support for Cost-Effective Pollution Control

    ' Analytical tools have been developed by the World Bank Group to estimate rapidly the extent and impacts of pollution in a given situation and to support decisions on pollution management. These tools help decision makers to overcome the frequent lack of data on emissions from different sources, their impact on ambient quality, and mitigation alternatives.' Decision Support System for ...

  • Implication of Applying CALPUFF to Demonstrate Compliance with the Regional Haze Rule

    Abstract The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency promulgated the final Regional Haze Rule in July 1999 to protect Class I areas from visibility impairment. Industrial sources may be required to conduct modeling analysis to demonstrate their potential impact on nearby Class I areas during air permit applications. Although the widely used Industrial Source Complex Short-Term model (ISCST3) can be ...

  • Air Dispersion Models - Models can be used to aid in demonstrating environmental compliance, analyzing process changes and evaluating the impacts of accidental releases

    Air dispersion models are used to estimate the downwind concentration of pollutants emitted by various pollution sources such as industrial facilities and regional public traffic. Dispersion models play an important role in the industrial and regulatory communities. They are typically used to demonstrate compliance with National Ambient Air Quality Standards as part of new source review, ...

  • Composting releases less air pollution than previously thought - study

    A new study funded by the California Integrated Waste Board (CIWMB) indicates that well-managed composting of green waste and food waste releases significantly less air pollution than previously thought. The study also demonstrates that a relatively inexpensive management technique - covering active compost piles with a layer of finished compost - may lower air emissions even further, by as ...

  • A Neural Model for SPM Concentration Prediction in Coal Mines

    ABSTRACT Coal mines are the major sources of suspended particulate matter. To implement any control techniques or to install any control equipment around the coal mines, ambient concentration of suspended particulate matter should be known. In this paper a model is developed to find the concentration of suspended particulate matter at various locations away from the source. The model is ...


  • Metrics Will Matter

    EH&S managers pride themselves on using the latest software systems to collect and track metrics. The displays are impressive and the reports give one a good feeling of being in control. In reality, some EH&S managers may be winning the battle to efficiently sort data, but losing the strategic war to gain competitive advantage for their companies. Metrics theory and practice has undergone ...

  • Federal transport rule — the “new cair” round 1

    On August 2, 2010, EPA proposed the long- awaited replacement for the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR), which was rejected in 2008 by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Now called the Transport Rule (TR) by EPA, the new rule revises the CAIR approach to conform with the court ruling. In this first version (Round 1) of TR, overall emission budgets for NOX are similar to the initial period in CAIR; ...

  • Assessment of Nitrogen and Phosphorus Environmental Pressure at European Scale

    In surface water bodies, the increase in nutrient concentration above the natural background levels enhances the productivity, causing the phenomenon of eutrophication (Nixon, 1995). The euthrophication has been identified as a major cause of impaired water quality of rivers, lakes and estuaries (EEA, 2001; EEA, 1999; Carpenter et al. 1998; Meybeck, 1982). Agriculture is considered the main ...


  • Sample Handling Strategies for Accurate Lead-In-Soil Measurements in the Field and Laboratory

    ABSTRACT The inhomogenous lead-in-soil matrix can present serious obstacles to accurate sample collection and handling. In typical lead-in-soil measurement, particle size related errors in sampling and sample handling often exceed all other sources of error. The magnitude of error can vary widely depending on the particulate nature of the lead contaminant and the effectiveness of control ...

    This article discusses the benefits of wireless technology for continously monitoring the indoor environment. In striving for the construction of energy efficient and cost-effective buildings, the imperative issue of the buildings Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is often overlooked. This can often lead to a unhealthy indoor environment and even to conditions such as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) or other ...
