  • GENAQ: An indispensable piece to fight the water challenge

    Our daily activities consume large amounts of water. For example, a 60W incandescent light bulb, lit for 12 hours a day, consumes 2,380 liters of water per year. For this reason, one of the main challenges when talking about water scarcity is focused on the environments in which we currently do not notice the lack of water but we will in the coming years. Robert Glennon, a professor at the ...

  • Flow-induced errors in airborne in situ measurements of aerosols and clouds

    Abstract. Aerosols and clouds affect atmospheric radiative processes and climate in many complex ways and still pose the largest uncertainty in current estimates of the Earth’s changing energy budget. Airborne in situ sensors such as the Cloud, Aerosol, and Precipitation Spectrometer (CAPS) or other optical spectrometers and optical array probes provide detailed information about the ...

  • GWT: AOP Treatment Solutions that Protect the World from PFAS, GenX and Other Emerging Contaminants in Drinking Water & Wastewater

    According to recent data, published by EWG, 110 million Americans could possibly have Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contaminated drinking water sources. While these chemicals have been in use for many years, the extent of their environmental and human impact is only just beginning to surface. As of March 2020, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) had identified 1,477 ...

  • Profitable Business Enterprise Using A Small Pyrolysis Machine

    Rubber and plastic waste may cause a lot of injury to environmental surroundings when it is not discarded in a responsible way. Fortunately, thanks to the invention of pyrolysis plants, such waste may be recycled into valuable end products. As an example, it really is possible to start up a profitable tire recycling business venture by investing in a little pyrolysis machine. While small-scale ...

  • Profitable Business Venture Using A Small Pyrolysis Machine

    Rubber and plastic waste might cause plenty of injury to the planet when it is not discarded within a responsible way. Fortunately, due to the invention of pyrolysis plants, such waste may be recycled into valuable end products. For instance, it is actually possible to set up a profitable tire recycling business venture by purchasing a compact pyrolysis machine. While ...

  • Benefit of Using LTM-2 in Enclosed Flotation Cells

    Some operations fully enclose to make airtight their flotation cells to minimize sulfide mineral oxidation and control bulk water chemistry occurring from oxygen; the air from collapsed froth is recycled by the float cell and/or N2 gas is used as the flotation air. The enclosure makes effective slurry level monitoring challenging as operators cannot easily view or access their installed level ...

  • The role of monitoring in Natural Flood Management

    Flooding is a natural process, but it endangers lives and causes heavy economic loss.  Furthermore, flood risk is expected to increase with climate change and increased urbanisation, so a heavy responsibility lies with those that allocate funding and formulate flood management strategy. In the following article, Nigel Grimsley from OTT Hydromet explains how the success of such plans (both ...

  • What materials can be incinerated?

    What Is Incineration? Incineration is the process of burning waste material at a high temperature as a way of disposal. This process is also known as ‘thermal treatment’. Incineration is now seen as an essential part of any waste reduction plan to minimise waste and the amount of waste that goes to landfill. What materials can I put into an ...

  • The Basics of a Fiber Bed Filter

    Fiber bed mist eliminators capture, collect, and remove liquid particle mists, sub-micron particles and harmful aerosols that cause pollution in the atmosphere. This pollution can take form as opacity, smoke, and blue haze. The pollution that is caused by mist is a product of operations of chemical and industrial processes such as, asphalt processing, acid mist control, Lube oil vents & ...

  • Assessing the Impact of Atmospheric Wet and Dry Deposition using Chemical and Toxicological Analysis

    Abstract :Chemical analyses and toxicity test results for atmospheric wet and dry deposition from 5 sampling sites in Greece are presented in this study. In most of the samples examined, the heavy metals content of the filtered water samples was relatively low. There was quite a high concentration of amorphous sulphur and carbon in the solid particles of the deposition. Beta radiation level was ...

  • Drops in a Cloud: An SBIR-funded spectrometer is at the forefront of global climate research

    Weeks before the athletes took to the ice and snow at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, Dr. Duncan Axisa was in the mountains around PyeongChang, studying ice-forming particles. Later in the year, Axisa traveled to India to study monsoon clouds, and to France to participate in a trans-national ice-nucleation experiment. Axisa and his team travel around the globe to help scientists better ...

  • HAZWOPER – Different, Not Less

    When we think of a hazardous material event, we often think of firefighters and technicians rushing in with large plastic space-like suits to stop the leak and save the day. These first responders definitely play a large role in the mitigation of these emergency situations, but sometimes we tend to forget about the second – due responders who pick up the pieces and begin recovery. ...
