  • Blockchain Technology Can Boost Climate Action

    Experts meeting at the recent UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn in May have said that a new technology called “Blockchain” could play a major role in tackling climate change. A Blockchain is a distributed database that is continuously updated and verified by its users. Each added block of data is “chained” and becomes part of a growing list of records, under the ...

  • Advances in Multilevel Well Technology

    Several detailed field studies performed at research sites in the 1980’s and 1990’s suggest that most contaminant plumes exhibit large variations in concentration over small vertical distances. These variations are caused by spatial variations in the contaminant source zones and heterogeneity of the geologic materials. Conventional monitoring wells have been shown to be ineffective for accurately ...

  • Data Centre CRAC unit efficiency improvements

    One of the main types of project Munters look at is energy efficiency improvements within the thermal management side. One of the easiest changes that can be made is swapping out the old AC powered motors for EC powered impellors. the reductions in energy is considerable, with some older belt drive unit changes measuring a saving of over 60% this is due to the design of the new impellors and the ...

  • San Juan Island well production and tank level monitoring case study

    San Juan Island is a popular resort destination whose population fluctuates with the season and the arrival of Orca whales and salmon runs. To get to the island, you must first drive an hour north of Seattle to the city of Anacortes. From there you take a two-hour ferry ride through a 130 island group to arrive at the 20 mile San Juan Island, which is at the waterway entrance to Puget Sound. Bob ...

  • Latin America well-positioned for CDM

    The coastal desert of Colombia’s La Guajira state is a world away from Kyoto, the temperate Japanese city where representatives of 159 countries in 1997 signed the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouses gases. The Caribbean laps against rickety settlements. Herds of goats range across scorching sands. Months, whole years, pass without rain. But Kyoto is well known to the inhabitants of La ...


  • Monitor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) with PPM Technology’s IAQ Monitor

    Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOC’s is one of numerous sensor options that can be incorporated into PPM Technology’s ...

  • Time to change habits, as well as light bulbs?

    November 16, 2010 We are bombarded daily by advertisements selling us soft drinks, pharmaceuticals, cars, insurance, junk food, teeth whitener, diet programs, and on and on. But when was the last time someone tried to sell you on using more electricity? I cannot think of a single commercial that encourages us to plug-in, even though electricity is the chief product of 3,000 utilities in the ...

  • Different technology options for monitoring oil in produced water – inline continuous monitoring and IR analysis

    No offshore facility wants to be caught with a sheen around their platform as that can result in a costly fine for exceeding discharge permit limits for oil. Onboard oil in water analyzers are necessary to ensure the oil/water separation systems are functioning properly before overboard disposal of the produced water. Bench top analyzers have traditionally been used to test oil in water although ...
