  • The climb to the top

    Back in the late 1980’s when market drivers created the cost-effective option of using above-ground circular tanks for industrial activated sludge processes, there were some early valuable lessons for both aeration equipment manufacturers and plant operators. As production plants got away from in-ground basins, one of the more simple innate operational checks became more challenging; ...

  • Following the fuel: How portable biomass energy generation may help rural communities

    The forests that surround many of California’s mountain communities tend to have an abundance of woody biomass and a pressing need for thinning to reduce fire danger. Revenue from selling forest residues to biomass power plants could help to support fuel reduction activities, but in many cases the nearest plant is so far away that hauling costs are prohibitive. The remoteness of such ...

  • Material control and accountability for laboratory biosecurity

    Laboratory biosecurity refers to a suite of measures to protect legitimate stocks of dangerous pathogens and toxins from being acquired by individuals with malicious intent. Intentional misuse presents a different problem than accidental misuse, which is the subject of laboratory biosafety. In particular, the material control and accountability (MC&A) component of laboratory biosecurity addresses ...

  • How Does a Laboratory Automation Needs Assessment Benefit Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) Implementation and Operation?

    Many laboratories may have the expertise to translate manual processes and laboratory automation requirements into a detailed specification document for all of the system requirements, features and functions of a LIMS. However, that may not be the best utilization of their resources. In addition, this can be labor intensive and the laboratory personnel may be too close to the project and may not ...

  • How to Handle Chemical Spills in Laboratories

    Chemical Spill Response Products & Procedures The current political and world climate has forced the Emergency Response Community to take a closer look at the number of potential hazards that they may be called upon to deal with.

  • Simple laboratory techniques improve the operation of RO pre-treatment systems

    Membrane failures are often caused by poor pre-treatment design and/or poor operation. Systems are frequently designed and built without a clear understanding of the chemistry of the feed water to be treated and the physical characteristics of the particulate matter it contains. The larger the system the more likely is some incident of pre-treatment failure, often at a high financial cost to the ...
