  • How Can A Tyre Pyrolysis Machine Benefit the Environment

    Since rubber tyres first came into existence over a century ago, their disposal as waste has been a problem. They have got the uncanny capacity to continually rise up when coupled with other waste within a landfill. Additionally, they have a tendency to hold water which will help to breed mosquitoes, many of which carry diseases like malaria. Tyres are also toxic when burned releasing small ...

  • Construction sites pollution monitoring - Case study

    Constructing buildings, roads and other infra structure can have a substantial, temporary impact on local air quality. Airborne contaminants generated are spreading around in the surrounding neighborhood during activities (excavation, raw material extraction, demolition, transportation, painting, covering, concrete…), mostly carried by wind. The main construction contaminants include PM10 ...

  • Toxicity Studies of Treated Residual Wastes in Austria using Different Types of Conventional Assays and Cost-Effective Microbiotests

    Abstract : The toxicity and chemical quality of 12 mechanically-biologically treated residual wastes were studied during different treatment periods. Acute and chronic bioassays were carried out with a battery of test organisms. The acute toxicity was assessed using Daphnia magna (crustacea) and Vibrio fischeri (luminescent bacteria). The chronic toxicity was tested with Selenastrum capricornutum ...

  • Determination of anthropogenic pedo-geochemical backgrounds (FPGAs): the case of Toulouse Métropole - Case Study

    Urban soils hold the "memory" of cities; the geochemical quality of urban soils, to which the population is exposed, reflects its history: emissions since the industrial revolution, successive reconstructions on rubble, particularly following historical conflicts, etc. This is why we know little about the quality of these surface layers, made up of rubble of uncertain composition, even though it ...

  • Ion Exchange Resin Activation

     Ion exchange resin contains a certain amount of water, which should be kept as much as possible during transportation and storage. If the resin is dehydrated during storage, it should be soaked in concentrated salt water (about 10%) and then diluted gradually. The resin should not be directly put in water to avoid rapid expansion and crushing. In long-term storage, strong resin should ...
