  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • Electrochemical Oxidation Of Organic Pollutants

    Abstract The main aim this paper is to use 'Electrochemical Technology for removal of Organic Pollutants from Waste Water'. Today hazardous waste management has become one of the most challenging tasks to this technological world because tons of organic pollutants including various carcinogens are being exposed without the sufficient treatment prescribed as per the 'ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ...


  • Persistent organic pollutants in the Arctic

    Persistent organic pollutants (POP) have been subject to research at NILU for a long time. These substances are toxic and are of anthropogenic origin, they accumulate in the environment, and they move through the environment so that after a discharge their traces including transformation products can be found in far-away places in air, water, soil and biological ...

  • Sustainability isn’t for later. 10 ways any business can build a more credible sustainability story

    Sustainability isn’t a priority right now. We need a full sustainability strategy before we can start. I need to calculate what the ROI would be first. All of these are common objections to taking the first steps on any organization’s sustainability journey. In fact, credible sustainable action can be accomplished by organizations of any size and it doesn’t have to be costly or ...

  • Using UV Fluorescent Technology to monitor for organic pollutants

    For many years the water industry has relied on traditional sampling techniques to monitor water quality in a wide range of environments. Traditional tests such as BOD, PH, Dissolved Oxygen and Ammonia have formed the bedrock of monitoring parameters. There are however other ways to establish water quality and UV fluorescence offers an up to date solution for the investigation of ...

  • Modified biopolymer adsorbent for the removal of dissolved organic pollutants

    Chemically modified cellulose fibres were used as adsorbents for the removal of organic compounds and herbicides from water. The chemical modification of fibres by grafting hydrocarbon moieties enhances the adsorption capacity of cellulose substrate. The adsorption behaviour of the modified fibres towards various organic solutes and three herbicides was investigated. The viability of application ...

  • Screening of volatile organic compounds as a source for indoor pollution

    For a considerable period of time the presence of an increasing number of chemicals has been observed in almost all aspects of human life. This process also affects the living and working environment of man. Human development, including physical and mental health and well-being, depends on to a great degree on the surrounding environment. Considering that an average person spends a significant ...

  • Metals and organic pollutants in snow surrounding an iron factory

    Abstract To estimate air pollution snow samples were collected in March 2001 at six sites in the vicinity of the Kostomuksha factory in Karelia. Seventy-two chemical elements and more than 200 individual organic compounds were identified by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS). It was found that the levels of Li, B, Al, Fe, Ni, Cu, ...

  • Ozone treatment of organic micro-pollutants in sewage sludge

    Organic micro-pollutants accumulate to a certain extent in sewage sludge and are therefore ecologically relevant if the sludge is to be reused in both agriculture and landscaping applications. This paper describes the degradation of endocrine-disrupting compounds and other micro-contaminants by means of ozone and ultrasonic treatment. One of the findings is that, as expected, aromatic compounds ...

  • Land use patterns and organic pollution in the rivers

    The riverine system is an important resource of water supply to the communities but rivers are being contaminated due to organic pollutants, which is a serious problem. Organic contamination has been discussed with regard to the different rivers of the world. Various organic pollutants, detected in water and the sediment of the rivers, have been reported. The effects of different land use ...

  • Cattle egrets as a biosentinels of persistent organic pollutants exposure

    We investigated selected chlorinated pollutants (β-HCH, γ-HCH, DDDs, DDEs, o,p′-DDT, p,p′-DDT, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, and endrin) in the Lahore and the Sialkot districts of Pakistan, using eggs of cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis) collected during May and June 2007. The pollutant with highest level and frequency was ΣDDT, followed by β-HCH, γ-HCH, ...

  • Using UV Fluorescence technology to monitor for organic pollutants in Flood Water

  • Priority organic pollutants in the urban water cycle (Toulouse, France)

    Application of the European Water Framework Directive requires Member States to have better understanding of the quality of surface waters in order to improve knowledge of priority pollutants. Xenobiotics in urban receiving waters are an emerging concern. This study proposes a screening campaign of nine molecular species of xenobiotics in a separated sewer system. Five sites were investigated ...

  • Organic and metallic pollutants in water treatment and natural wetlands: a review

    A literature review shows that more than 500 compounds occur in wetlands, and also that wetlands are suitable for removing these compounds. There are, however, obvious pitfalls for treatment wetlands, the most important being the maintenance of the hydraulic capacity and the detention time. Treatment wetlands should have an adapted design to target specific compounds. Aquatic plants and soils are ...

  • Preparation and selective adsorption of organic pollutants by an inorganic molecular imprinted polymer

    A novel inorganic molecular imprinted polymer (MIP) was synthesized by adding Al3+ to the Fe/SiO2 gel with Acid Orange II (AO II) as the template. The MIP was characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and nitrogen adsorption-desorption measurement. Compared with the non-imprinted polymer (NIP), the MIP enhanced the ...

  • Transboundary Pollution

    All pollutants can be transported through the aquatic environment and atmosphere, and many accumulate in downstream water bodies and their biota. The probability that pollution will cause transboundary impacts depends on the location of its source in relation to national boundaries, as well as the time it takes for a given pollutant to degrade. In general, microbial pollution is primarily a local ...

  • Immobilization of organic pollutants in cement pastes admixed with organophilic materials

    The results of 2-chloroaniline (2-CA) immobilization experiments in cement matrices, using an organophilic clay modified with phenolic resins as pre-sorbent, are shown. The 2-CA suspended in water was kept in contact with the organoclay for 24 h, and the slurry obtained was then admixed with ordinary Portland cement (OPC) without additional water, to obtain a firm solid waste. Six cement—clay ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in the European Atmosphere: An Updated Overview

    The industrial revolution and the resultant technological society have led to a continuous production and emission of new toxic substances causing gradual and widely diffuse adverse effects to the entire planet usually known as Global Environmental Changes. Climate change, ozone depletion and global distribution of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are, among other, important examples of ...
