  • Top 5 incineration myth busters

    There are a lot of myths and misconceptions out there when it comes to incinerators and with many people feeling uncertain of what they actually need when in a position to purchase a incinerator, it is sometimes difficult to tell fact from fiction.  Every day we have multiple phone calls from existing and potential customers asking the same ...

  • Examining the benefits of HDPE geomembrane

    Comparing various geomembranes for your next geosynthetic application? Don’t overlook high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembrane. HDPE has been in use for decades and during that time a number of studies have been conducted to test its longevity and ability to meet environmental sustainability project requirements. Here, we explore some of those studies to examine the benefits of HDPE ...

  • Transformational adaptation – when climate change means business as usual is no longer possible

    1. A lesson from the past Deep in the central Sahara, a crumbling mud-brick town sits at the edge of a dry lake bed. This is the medieval town of Germa, in southwestern Libya, one of a string of settlements along the Wadi al-Ajal, a valley defined by the towering dunes of the Ubari Sand Sea to the north, and the black cliffs of the Messak Settafet plateau to the south. Germa is romantic ...

  • An integrated methodology for assessing physical and technological life of products for reuse

    This paper seeks to develop methodologies that aid in predicting the remaining lifetime and reuse potential of used components. The methodologies integrate the physical and the technological life aspects for an integrated assessment. There are three core parts of this research. First, the remaining physical life of used components is derived based on the failure rate data and the statistical ...

  • A new strategy for treating a cotton dyeing wastewater – integration of physical-chemical and advanced oxidation processes

    New strategies were herein applied for treating a cotton dyeing wastewater: coagulation/flocculation followed by Fenton’s oxidation – approach 1, Fenton process per se – approach 2, and Fenton followed by coagulation/flocculation – approach 3, aiming reducing chemicals consumption. Regarding the cost analysis, which is crucial for deciding on the best strategy to implement, it was found that ...

  • Study on method for assessment of the physical structure integrity in Chagan lake in China based on remote sensing

    This paper, taking Chagan lake as the study area, uses and improves MWR V1.0 (Rivers (Lake) Health Assessment Indicators, Standards and Methods V1.0) relating to the theory and method of physical structure integrity assessment. A 500 m × 1000 m grid on the lakeshore zone is a basic evaluation unit, and then a lakeshore physical structural integrity evaluation system using remote ...

  • Integration of mathematical and physical simulation to calibrate car-following behaviour of unimpaired and impaired drivers

    Traffic patterns can be modelled by mathematical microsimulation. People can be modelled by driving simulators that resemble flight simulators. This paper shows how driver car-following behaviour from driving simulators can be transferred to traffic microscopic simulation. We capture driver behaviour through physical driver simulator experiments. Subjects holding cell phone conversations while ...

  • Integrated 3D physical-numerical modelling for simulating bioremediation of petroleum contamination in heterogeneous subsurface environment

    This study presents physical-numerical modelling of petroleum contaminant transport and enhanced in situ bioremediation in heterogeneous subsurface environment. The approach is based on development of a three-dimensional multi-layered physical model coupled with a three-dimensional multiphase multi-component numerical model. An experimental scheme was designed to conduct 40-day benzene transport, ...

  • Using complex event processing for modelling and simulation of cyber–physical systems

    We consider critical infrastructures as cyber–physical systems (CPS). Although simulations play an important role for CPS, no single simulator is available to simulate different depending CI. Therefore, interoperability of simulators in federated simulations is an important requirement. For modelling and simulation of CPS behaviour, both physical and control aspects have to be considered. ...

  • Physical and chemical impacts of conventional unit processes and coagulants on the dinoflagellate, Ceratium hirundinella

    The freshwater dinoflagellate, Ceratium hirundinella (C. hirundinella) with its complex morphology and robust thecal plate cell covering, is responsible for extensive problems during drinking water production. To have a better understanding of these problems, knowledge of what happens to the integrity of the cells after each step of the conventional water treatment process is ...

  • Completely Integrated Environmental Management

    Environmental information management isn't what it used to be. It's no longer about software programs that manage data and write reports, but whole programs that do everything. As a wider array of companies offer environmental information management systems (EMIS), and as in-house and desktop software solutions have become more common, EMIS options become wide indeed. EH&S managers are ...

  • Integrated Wastewater Management

    ' Appropriate wastewater management, within an overall water resources management program, is essential to responsible use of the environment and to affordable provision of services. Such management programs are best developed at a river basin or sub-catchment level. An approach is outlined for developing a wastewater strategy and an implementation plan for a river basin.' Integrated ...

  • Changes in chemical and physical properties of stream water across an urban-rural gradient in western Georgia

    The Middle Chattahoochee River Watershed in western Georgia is undergoing rapid urban development. Consequently, Georgia’s water quality is threatened by extensive development as well as other land uses such as grazing. Maintenance of stream water quality, as land development occurs, is critical for the protection of drinking water, biotic integrity, and stream morphology. A two-phase, ...

  • Embedding nuclear physics rules and fuel chemistry limits in control algorithms for a fuel-efficient nuclear reactor

    In a nuclear reactor, the energy which is stored in the fuel is proportional to the amount of fissile material. The consumption of that amount, after a set burn-up, should and must result in delivering a set energy, barring leakages (losses). The loss of energy due to an inefficient control algorithm, after a set burn-up, is a problem that no one has yet addressed. Nuclear fuel chemists and ...

  • Effects of physical disturbances on media and performance of household-scale slow sand (BioSand) filters

    Point-of-use (POU) water treatment provides households in rural and remote communities with a means of obtaining greater control over their water quality and its effects on human health. One of the most prevalent POU interventions, the BioSand filter (BSF), is a household-scale, intermittently operated slow sand filter used by over 300,000 households. The sand and gravel media within BSFs can be ...
