  • What classifies as water pollution and why is it an issue?

    The UN declared 2005-2015 as the International Decade for Action ‘Water for Life’. Yet each day thousands of people still die as a result of contaminated water. This does not even take into account the millions of organisms that perish every year thank to polluted water sources. Water pollution is a huge issue that is made more so by the fact that unfortunately, water is ...

  • Organics Monitoring (TOC)

    Total organic carbon (TOC) testing is the traditional method for determining organic matter in water. However there is a far more practical, affordable and often more useful way to measure organic matter. UV absorbance testing (UVA) is rapidly becoming the preferred method of measuring organics even when the levels of organics being measured are very small. Organic Matter Organic ...

  • Monitor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) with PPM Technology’s IAQ Monitor

    Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOC’s is one of numerous sensor options that can be incorporated into PPM Technology’s ...

  • Organics in boiler water condensate

    With the wide use of high efficiency boilers and current high-pressure boilers in industry today limiting condensate analysis to the more traditional parameters can result in very expensive repairs. Condensate return should be the highest quality least expensive water that most systems can generate. Boiler operators do not want to lose this or have it contaminated. Condensate return analysis has ...

  • peCOD is the New NOM Monitoring Tool for Measuring Organic Reactivity - Case Study

    Natural organic matter (NOM) is a critical parameter for measuring drinking water quality.  Levels of NOM are associated with taste, odour, colour, chemical treatment dosage, and disinfectant by-product (DBP) formation.  There are several tools accepted by drinking water quality experts which are used to evaluate NOM: total organic carbon (TOC), dissolved organic carbon (DOC), UV254, ...

  • Air monitoring of persistent organic pollutants in the Great Lakes: IADN vs. AEOLOS

    When designing a monitoring campaign, one has to consider many factors in the decision to perform a long-term synoptic monitoring program or a short-term intensive study. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. This paper compares and contrasts the information obtained from two studies conducted on the Laurentian Great Lakes. One, the Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN), is a ...

  • Going organic for the climate

    Also in the world of climate change, organic is the way to go. I am not writing about organic food here, despite my personal interest in the topic, but about peatlands, which are soils with a substantial layer of organic matter at or near the surface. Well, they are the way to go for the climate as long as you treat them well. If not, they become a vigorous source of greenhouse gas emissions. ...

  • What is a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)?

    What is a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)? Our products are known for monitoring many different gases, but if you look closely at the description of some of them, you will see that it mentions the acronym VOC. For those that don’t know what VOC means, it stands for volatile organic compound, and there are thousands of different ones produced and used in our daily lives. ...

  • Japanese Organics Recycling Association Formed

    Another backyard composting adage states that compost should have the feel of a wrung-out sponge — damp but not dripping wet. Actually, a wrung-out sponge may be on the dry side for composting, but the analogy does provide a great image for understanding the reasons for balancing moisture. Like a compost pile (or windrow or material in a vessel), a sponge is a solid mass containing an enormous ...

  • Measuring total organic carbon in wastewater

    The continuous TOC analysis of industrial waste water is known to be problematic especially, when the TOC analyser is used as a spill monitor for heavily polluted waste water containing a high-load of particles. Thus, most operators require analysers that enable accurate TOC (total organic carbon) measurements. But do they really get those? Common analysers suffer from clogging and blockages due ...

  • Optical Assessment of Dissolved Organic Carbon

    Natural organic matter is present in all sources of drinking water. When chlorine is used for drinking-water treatment, a portion of the natural organic matter reacts to form halogenated compounds, referred to as disinfection by-products (DBPs), some of which are regulated by the USEPA due to their health effects. The implementation of stricter drinking-water quality regulations for DBPs has ...

  • Preparing the way for commercial organics recovery

    The Planning for a source-separated commercial organics program began in California's Santa Cruz County in 2001. Businesses were surveyed to determine if there was sufficient interest in separate collection of food, food-soiled paper and wax-coated cardboard to supply a collection route. Many restaurants, markets and residential facilities responded enthusiastically to the idea of collection and ...
