  • What makes high-risk pipelines deteriorate to a state of failure?

    According to AWWA's 2016 Benchmarking Survey, the average water and wastewater utility has seven breaks per 100 miles of piping every year. Tip-top systems experience just four breaks in that distance, while those at the bottom have 18. While it’s interesting to note the difference in break rates, it’s unfair ...

  • Working in confined spaces: did you cover your risks?

    Most industrial facilities have confined spaces. They often get overlooked because access to them is rare. Not surprisingly, many facility managers believe there is no particular reason for concern.  The awakening could be a rude one, as several managers have faced criminal prosecution and substantial fines as a result of fatal accidents. The issue of work in confined spaces is a historical ...

  • Climate change is more than a tech problem, so we need more than a tech solution

    At the COP 21 climate convention in Paris at the end of 2015, leaders from 194 nations agreed to pursue actions that will cut greenhouse gas emissions enough to keep global warming within 1.5 °C (2.7 °F) above pre-industrial conditions. Meeting this goal will avoid continued and increasing harm to people and ecosystems around the world caused by a changing climate, and it is also a great ...

    For most people (and for most homes) the likelihood of going through a whole year spending next to nothing on energy is a goal that seems far out of reach. In fact, it is only relatively recently that insulation technologies, coupled with cutting-edge renewable energy tools, have made the concept of a net-zero energy use home anything more than a pipe dream. However, thanks to a program at the ...

  • These entrepreneurs are using technology to turn a profit on food waste

    Creative businesses aim to get food that would otherwise be wasted into the hands of those who can use it. Food waste is bad for our wallets.

  • Are incineration and landfills the answer to save us from the recycling crisis?

    For plastic recycling, this year hasn’t exactly been one of the best – what is to blame? Oil. Shockingly, it actually costs more to recycle old plastic than it does to make new in many ways. Petroleum prices have fallen so low, as low as 70% below the level in June 2014. This may be great for some – however with it has fallen the cost of Virgin Plastic which is made from ...
