  • Circular Economy Package: Questions & Answers

    What is the Circular Economy? To ensure sustainable growth for the EU we have to use our resources in a smarter, more sustainable way. It is clear that the linear model of economic growth we relied on in the past is no longer suited for the needs of today's modern societies in a globalised world. We cannot build our future on a 'take-make-dispose' model. Many natural resources are ...

  • Investigations into the possibility to compost paraffincoated packaging materials

    Utilisation of biodegradable materials is indispensable for effective economic operation (Soyez, 1998). However, the requirements to be met by the application characteristics sometimes prevent use of such materials. For example, packaging materials for foodstuffs, where protection of the contents is the predominant aim, are required to display hydrophobic properties. Paraffin-coated papers have ...

  • Enhanced separation of hop oils by flow-modulated GC×GC–TOF MS with Tandem Ionisation

    Beer contains hundreds of organic ingredients, with concentrations spanning many orders of magnitude, and including monoterpenes (C10) and sesquiterpenes (C15). These are aroma-active hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of various plants, including hops, and provide much of the characteristic ‘bitterness’ of the finished beer. Of the greatest importance for beer is the ...

  • Contain Oil Vapor for Better Reliability

    In a boiler feed pump, an air breather is used to vent the enclosed air space on the bearing housings. With increasing heat and thermal expansion, oil vapors form in the bearing housings and migrate through the air vents. The vapor then condenses in the air filter media saturating the filter with oil. The air breather becomes ineffective, which affects mechanical seals and the overall ...

  • Recycler solves waste oil problem, attains EPA compliance

    Environmental compliance is a major concern and challenge for the recycling industry. There are few recycling industries that face a stiffer challenge than auto recyclers. Vehicles that once were abandoned have become a valuable commodity. Junkers are now being crushed, shredded and recycled to make new steel. While autos contain a lot of valuable and reusable metal, they also contain substances ...

  • How to Treat Water and Remove Arsenic

    Arsenic is a naturally occurring element from the earth’s crust. Around the world, many countries have groundwater that is steeped in arsenic. Until recently, governments haven’t realized just how bad arsenic was for people, even in minute concentrations. In 2001, the US Environmental Protection Agency felt it necessary to lower the drinking water arsenic standard from 50 parts ...

  • Effective Techniques for Arsenic Removal from Water

    Arsenic is a tricky substance because it is colorless and odorless, making detecting its presence and ensuring its removal at a contaminant site tricky. However, high levels of arsenic can have drastic, fatal effects on wildlife as well as humans if left untreated. If it isn’t properly and fully extracted, serious problems can result. If you’re considering the best industrial ...
