  • FORMA: A Near-Real Time Alert System for Tropical Forest Loss

    If you were the administrator of a protected forest, you would ideally have a staff of rangers on patrol, backed up by law enforcement and high-resolution satellite images to keep you up-to-date on the forest’s condition. In this ideal world, illegal activity would quickly be halted. Yet the reality is that many protected areas lack these resources. ...

  • In-Vessel Composting of Residential Organics

    In 1994, the Regional Municipality of Peel began work on a system for residential organic residuals collection and composting. Although Peel had been promoting backyard composting, greater diversion rates were sought. The public was surveyed to determine what level of cooperation could be expected for source separation and setting out of food, soiled paper products, yard trimmings, etc. “We knew ...

  • Fast detection of hazardous organic gases in the ambient air using adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference systems

    In this study, an adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) is proposed for the concentration estimation of volatile organic gases before the sensor response time by using the transient sensor response. A neural network (NN) structure with tapped time delays and Mamdani's fuzzy inference system (FIS) are also used for comparison. The estimation results of ANFIS are better than those of the ...

  • Organic sum parameters for river monitoring

    The purpose of river monitoring is to have an early warning system for chemical accidents with the consequence of water pollution through hazardous chemical substances. The real objective goes even further because the early warning system is intended for protecting the sensible drinking water resources. River monitoring stations have been established along rivers around the world. Today there is ...

  • 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 ...

  • Understanding Challenging Applications for Improved Metal Detection

    In the food industry, certain products can act like metal contaminants, a phenomenon known as ‘product effect.’ This is where the type of product being inspected can hinder the ability of inspection technology to correctly identify metal. At best this can lead to unacceptable false reject levels, at worst it can result in metal contaminated product leaving the production facility. ...

  • Is it clean or contaminated soil? Using petrogenic versus biogenic GC‐FID chromatogram patterns to mathematically resolve false petroleum hydrocarbon detections in clean organic soils: A crude oil spiked peat microcosm experiment

    The Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) Reference Method for the Canada‐Wide Standard (CWS) for Petroleum Hydrocarbons (PHC) in Soil provides chemistry analysis standards and toxicity guidelines for the remediation of contaminated sites. However, these methods can co‐extract natural biogenic organic compounds (BOCs) from organic soils, causing false exceedences of toxicity ...

  • Dissolved Organic Nitrogen Measurement in Reclaimed Water

    Dissolved organic nitrogen (DON) is an emerging concern for wastewater reclamation and reuse communities since DON may react with disinfectants to form carcinogenic nitrogenous disinfection byproducts (DBP) (e.g., haloacetonitriles, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA)) and to affect the speciation of currently regulated DBP (trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids). Also, DON is present in proteins that ...

  • Bioremediation of Nitrochlorobenzene, Nitroaniline, Chloroaniline, and Other Organics in Groundwater.

    ABSTRACT: The uppermost aquifer beneath a chemical plant contains residual concentrations of o-nitrochlorobenzene from a tank car spill, as well as other plant-related organic compounds of concern (COC), including 2-nitroaniline and o-chloroaniline. The aquifer consists of low permeability clays and silts, and produces only a few gallons of groundwater per day from a shallow ...

  • Avoiding Sewer Fires with Vapor Space Organics Monitoring

    ABSTRACTRegulation of flammable gases released from wastewater discharges is facilitated by the use of the Vapor Space Organics test method. Such regulation can reduce the risk of a flash sewer fire, resulting damage and potential injury. The updated 2003 VSO process developed by Severn Trent Laboratories produced data that was equivalent to the 1990 VSO process developed and used by the ...

  • Rapid portable cross-connection detection by sensitive fluorescence spectroscopy

    Abstract The implementation of dual reticulation systems for returning recycled water to the home for nonpotable use is now common in new Australian housing developments. Managing the associated public health risk requires consideration of the potential for crossconnections between recycled and potable water pipes. While current protocols for detection exist, they are time consuming and ...

  • Advanced gas detection technology supports arctic greenhouse gas research

    Enormous quantities of greenhouse gases (GHG) exist within Arctic ice and frozen soils, so with the threat of global warming, a clear understanding of the relationship between GHG in the atmosphere and in the ice/soil is vital because melting of permafrost could cause a dangerous climate tipping point. There can be few more challenging environments for monitoring gases, but PhD researcher Martin ...

  • Water quality monitoring with online change-point detection methods

    We develop an approach for water quality time series monitoring and contamination event detection. The approach combines affine projection algorithms and an autoregressive (AR) model to predict water quality time series. Then, we apply online change-point detection methods to the estimated residuals to determine the presence, or not, of contamination events. Particularly, we compare the ...

  • Detection and measurement of toxic gases from destructive testing of batteries

    Problem Statement New formulations of organic-compound-based batteries for vehicle use must be tested for release of potentially harmful and toxic gases if crushed in accidents. Potential gases include hydrocarbons, fluorocarbons, and hydrogen fluoride, released within seconds of an incident. Actual time-resolved and quantitative data are required from destructive testing to ascertain ...
