  • 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 ...

  • Pollution monitoring in Cement Industry

    The rising use of waste based fuels in the cement industry, both for economic and Environmental objectives, combined with the strengthening of air emission regulations around the world is pushing many operators to face a wider list of pollutants to monitor this, with associated costs. The design of appropriate solutions meeting local regulation is the key to maximize the cost benefit of the fuel ...

  • Pollutant monitoring in sludge treatment wetlands

    Phragmites australis for sludge dewatering and stabilization processes have been widely proved. The presence of reeds, indeed, efficiently allows solids dewatering and organic matter stabilization in order to obtain a stabilised product that can be suitable for land application, even if its environmental impact has to be considered. The actual revision of the European Union's Working Document on ...

  • Air quality Monitors Track Pollution Hot-Spots

    Situated in the south west of Wales, in a largely rural area bordering the Brecon Beacons, Carmarthenshire’s air quality is predominantly good. However, there are areas of concern where major roads pass through some of the County’s larger towns, including Llanelli, Carmarthen and Llandeilo, where air quality is dominated by the effects of road traffic. The County Council is therefore ...

  • Monitoring Flow Rate in a Channel to Minimize Water Pollution

    Recently a wastewater management district in Cleveland contacted CAS DataLoggers to supply an automated monitoring solution for their environmental project. In most cities, sanitary sewers and storm sewers were separate, so that storm water was diverted into a nearby lake. However, Cleveland had only one sewer available, so all of the flow went to the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ecological Monitoring of Accidental Water Pollution - Operational Guide

    An important component of Cedre’s work involves designing operational guides which present the results of studies, of experimental work and experience feedback from accidents which have occurred. This guide is aimed at decision-makers liable to be involved in designing and implementing ecological monitoring programmes in the aftermath of an accidental water pollution ...

  • Monitoring of phytoplankton biomass and nutrients in a polluted stream

    The spatial and temporal variations in the concentrations of nutrients (NH4+, NO2−, PO43−, SiO4−) and chlorophyll a were monitored simultaneously in a slow-flowing watercourse (Saricay Stream, Turkey), which runs in a ruralurban gradient. Chlorophyll a concentrations ranged between 0.044 g l-1 and 206.15 g l-1 and, in general, the higher concentrations of chlorophyll a and ammonium were measured ...

  • Monitoring of air pollution in Indian metropolitan cities: modelling and quality indexing

    Air quality in cities is the result of a complex interaction between natural and anthropogenic environmental conditions. Delhi, as well as many other cities in India, is facing problems concerning air pollution. The increase in industrialisation and the vehicle fleet, poor control on emissions and little use of catalytic converters, produce a great amount of particulate and toxic gases. Data on ...

  • Comparison of Monitoring Approaches for Selected Priority Pollutants in Surface Water

    1 AbstractLaboratories from seven EU Member States under the coordination of the Joint Research Centre and in collaboration with the Provincia di Ferrara participated in a technical on-site project during which sampling and analytical methodologies for chemical monitoring according to proposed WFD provisions have been compared. Laboratories had been invited to take samples from a river according ...


  • Cysteine synthesis in Scorpiurum circinatum as a suitable biomarker in air pollution monitoring

    Heavy metals enter ecosystems by both natural and anthropogenic processes. An excess of metals in the environment damages plant metabolism, leading to oxidative stress in the cell. Most metal ions present in the cell are bound to low molecular mass ligands. The major types of S-containing ligands involved in metal binding are derived from cysteine. The authors show, for the first time in ...

  • Development of resistivity probes for continuous monitoring of pollutant in porous media

    In this study, an attempt has been made to develop resistivity probes and an experimental setup capable of simulating the field conditions concerned with migration of pollutant through the porous media. The porous media chosen for the present study is commercially available uniformly graded sand; while Sodium Chloride solution was considered as the pollutant. For the continuous monitoring of ...
