  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The scalp hair as a monitor for trace elements in biomonitoring of atmospheric pollution

    The chemical element contents in scalp hair of 80 apparently healthy 15- to 58-year-old citizens (36 females and 44 males) of a non-industrial region in the Central European part of Russia were investigated by Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-AES). The summary of statistics, arithmetic mean, standard deviation, ...

  • Is the solution to pollution dilution?

    Controls and monitors are part of environments where cleaning and purifying air moves beyond the usual HVAC filters and ventilation air. We can now utilize sensors and real time monitors that identify, track, and assure safe destruction of: mold, odors, allergens, bacteria, viruses, corrosion, chemical gases, and VOCs. Powerful proprietary filter media, adapted to each environment’s unique ...

  • 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 ...
