  • WHO report on diesel fumes puts sharp focus on need for effective monitoring

    The World Health Organisation this month reclassified the dangers of diesel exhaust fumes, upgrading the risk from probably carcinogenic to a definite cause of cancer. The WHO report is based on the findings of research on workers in high risk areas, and puts a sharp focus on the need for effective monitoring in industries such as mining, rail, transportation, construction, power generation and ...

  • Synthesis and characterisation of ZnO structures containing the nanoscale regime

    Synthesis of ZnO nanorods assembled in flower-shaped spherical morphologies have been grown via solution process by using zinc nitrate hexahydrate (Zn(NO3)2. 6H2O) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) at low-temperature of 100°C in eight hours. The grown ZnO structures were characterised in terms of their structural and optical properties. The detailed structural characterisations demonstrated that the ...

  • Optical properties of LiF:Mg,Cu,P nanorods

    Nanorods of LiF:Mg,Cu,P synthesized by the chemical co-precipitation technique have been investigated for their optical properties. Photoluminescence (PL) emission and excitation spectra and UV-visible absorption spectrum have been investigated in this paper. PL emission spectrum shows a wide emission band located at the range 350 nm-450 nm along with emerging of a sharp intense band at 376 nm. ...

  • Hospital chain on board with food scraps diversion

    The City of San Diego, California offers a commercial food scraps composting program. Food waste is collected from commercial generators by the city’s franchised haulers, and composted at the Miramar Greenery, the city’s composting facility. To expand the diversion program to large generators, city staff presented the program to a working group of local hospitals at the group’s ...

  • Removal of Pb(II) from aqueous solutions by graphene oxide aerogels

    This paper reports the application of graphene oxide aerogels (GOAs) for adsorption of lead(II) ions from aqueous solutions. The aerogels were fabricated from graphene oxide (GO) colloidal suspensions by unidirectional freeze drying method. The synthesized GO powders, as well as the aerogels, were thoroughly characterized by various techniques. The experimental data showed that the kinetic of ...

  • Removal of heavy metals from aqueous solution by limestone

    This study focused on the removal of Pb(II), Cd(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) using reagent solutions by natural limestone in a batch system. The sorbent, collected from the Late Cretaceous limestone beds, Tunisia, was characterised by X–ray diffraction (XRD), chemical analysis (XRF) and infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). XRF showed that the studied limestone contained high amount of calcium carbonates. XRD ...

  • Attenuation of TNT in seawater microcosms

    The ability of two differing marine sediments (one clayey, the other sandy) to attenuate the explosive 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), dissolved in intertidal seawater from the eastern English coast of the North Sea, was examined using aerobic microcosms. Analysis of the seawater from the microcosms revealed an initial sharp decline in TNT concentration with clayey sediment in both sterilized (to ...

  • Production of lacquers and paints

    During the production of lacquers and paints you can use an intensive dispersion of solid phase and contemporaneous activation of particles. The time of dispersing of the ferrate pigments in the Intensifier of Technological Processes is 15-60 seconds. During this time the ferrate pigments disperse to the size of 20 micron. At the ball ...

  • Environmental characterization of surface runoff from three highway sites in Southern Ontario, Canada: 2. Toxicology

    Highway runoff is a significant source of contaminants entering many freshwater systems. A battery of bioassays was used to assess the degree of runoff toxicity. The toxicity results are described in the spatial and temporal context and are linked to the runoff chemistry. Runoff samples from three sites, representing different classes of highways (high, intermediate and low traffic intensity), ...
