  • Measuring level by weight

    Measuring level or inventory by weight provides high accuracy. The weight is not affected by ingredients that foam or settle unevenly or by changes in density or the shape of the tank. Weight is weight, regardless of percent solids, bridging, rat-holing, or whether your ingredient is conductive or sound-absorbing. Because weighing is a noncontact method of measuring level, there is no chance of ...

  • The investigation and measurement of the radon gas working level inside buildings in Rafsanjan

    Radon gas and its daughters are radioactive and radiate alpha particles with high energy. These particles can cause DNA damage, which may or may not be properly repaired. Also, if these particles get into the lungs for a long period of time, they may damage the lungs' inner tissue. This is one of the most important causes of lung cancer after smoking. This paper presents a report on the ...

  • Data analytics and the materials cycle

    Data has the potential to revolutionise the materials industry, from extraction to processing to commercialisation. But it can only do so with the right mix of technology, skills and strategy. Dr Matt Jones explains. Using data is nothing new, but the rapid increase in data sources and quantity of data collected means getting the most out of it is ever more important. Properly used, data ...

  • Materiality Assessment for Dummies

    When I started to work in the area of sustainability, I had no idea what a materiality assessment was, and what all the acronyms like GRI and SASB meant. It occurred to me I probably wasn’t the only one, and now that materiality assessment is such a hot topic, I thought it would benefit others to review. For this, I turned to our Corporate Sustainability Officer at PE International, ...

  • Material flow analysis, TMR and the MIPS concept: a contribution to the development of indicators for measuring changes in consumption and production patterns

    It is not the scarcity of resources that constitutes environmental problems, but their use, the physical throughput of our economies. Material flows are a proxy for the totality of the unspecific environmental risks from human activities. As a strategic goal, an increase of the life-cycle-wide resource productivity by a factor 10 is suggested, including the materials bought and sold and the ...

  • Study on the Monitoring and Measurement of Greenhouse Gas Emissions at Plant level within the context of the Kyoto Mechanisms

    The purpose of this study is to define the systems for monitoring, reporting and verifying greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions covered by a European Union greenhouse gas cap-and-trade programme. The European trading programme is discussed in the Commission's green paper on emissions trading, which used as inputs reports prepared by FIELD and CCAP under a trading system design project sponsored in 1999 ...

  • Measuring diversion, recycling progress

    ONE OF the first sessions at the 23rd Annual BioCycle West Coast Conference next month in San Diego is titled “Documenting Waste Diversion.” When the State of California adopted its AB 939 recycling law in 1989, it established a 50 percent waste diversion goal by 2000. Jurisdictions failing to meet that goal would be subject to fines. A number of other states adopted diversion or recycling goals ...
