  • Return on Investment Using MANTECH Multi-Parameter Analysis Systems - Case Study

    Since 2008 Eurofins has been using MANTECH systems at various facilities around the world. Their first system ran 200,000 samples in five years. The unit analyzed 7 different parameters per sample and operated 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. This generated €5,000,000 in revenue. Their initial investment was €60,000. The system discussed in this case study analyses pH, conductivity, ...

  • Energetic use of scrap tires has been restricted: cement manufacturers have to switch to other substitute fuels

    The use of substitute fuels (SF) had previously been regulated in § 8 (3) of the laws of life-cycle management (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz-KrWG) and facilitated above all industrial companies with a high energy requirement to use SF such as scrap tires in the production of their products. But the so-called heating value regulation was now abolished on 1 June 2017. This means, among other ...

  • Studies on the adsorption of amoxicillin on multi-wall carbon nanotubes

    This study examined the feasibility of removing amoxicillin (AMO) from aqueous solutions using multi-wall carbon nanotubes. The equilibrium adsorption data were analyzed using four widely applied isotherms: Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin, and Dubinin–Radushkevich. The results showed that the Langmuir isotherm model fits well the obtained experimental data. The adsorption process followed the ...

  • London’s reliance on diesel triggers re-emergence of an old enemy: smog

    It’s Christmastime on Oxford Street. Brilliant displays of white lights rain from above. Decked-out shoppers dash from one gaudy sale to the next. And Johnny Conquest breathes in poison. “The air is horrible. The taxis stop right here, and when they take off, boom, you can taste it,” says the 67-year-old as the heavenly smell of the caramel peanuts he hawks from a humble street ...
