Toxicity Monitoring Applications

  • Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for chemical weapon agents

    The nation has stockpiled thousands of cylinders and canisters of toxic and deadly chemical weapon agents, including mustard gas (HD), sarin (GB), tabun (GA), and V-agents. Most of these CWAs are stored at DOD facilities around the country and many have been in storage for years and years. As a consequence, DOD requirements specify that the stockpiles have to be monitored regularly for leakages to prevent release to the environment and exposure to personnel.

  • Microbial testing for biological wastewater treatment industry

    Realize a new level of process stability and efficiency! Wastewater operators have traditionally had no choice but to rely on TSS or VSS measurements to quantify biomass in their process. These measurements detect much more than just living biomass and therefore are inaccurate and unresponsive indicators of the living population.

  • Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for emissions industry

    Pollutant emissions from industrial smoke stacks are a major national concern due to both health concerns and climate change. As a consequence, there are at least tens of gas analyzer manufacturers in the U.S. alone that compete in that market and have done so for years. What CIC Photonics brings to that competitive field is its expertise derived from its Combustion Efficiency Solution and its high performance IRGAS Systems. The IRGAS-CEM provides real-time and simultaneous measurements of the multitude of toxic combustion products, including CO, CO2, NOx, SOx, CH4, CxHy, H2S, etc. The EP-IRGAS-SPA is also applicable for fast time responses.

  • Odour measurement on industrial sites like waste water treatment plants (WWTP), landfill, compost plant...

    CairNet is a simple and efficient way to monitor processes and plant surroundings via a wireless communicating network and autonomous (solar panel and battery). CairNet surveys fugitive emissions of toxic gases or odourous gases around waste water treatment plants (WWTP), allowing you to react quickly to gas leaks. CairNet allows the wireless survey of hundreds of measurement points within a 200m radius of the wireless receiver for a much efficient installation cost. Cairpol systems can be used for fugitive emissions and odour measurement on industrial sites like waste water treatment plants (WWTP), landfill, compost plant, along a street or motorway, or in any sensitive area.

  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity reduction tests

    In industrial manufacturing companies, before a new process comes on-line, it is important to measure the toxicity of the effluent stream. This is especially the case for companies who treat their own waste. From the toxicity value (EC50) obtained, it may be a cost-effective solution to simply discharge the effluent to the treatment works at a slow and defined rate to minimise damage to the activated sludge. Following a period of acclimatisation it is often possible to increase feed rates to the plant and this can again be managed using the Strathtox Respirometer. An alternative approach is to undertake toxicity reduction procedures, such as neutralisation or acid hydrolysis, in pilot-scale laboratory studies. The Respiration or the Nitrification Inhibition Test may be used for this. In the future, toxicity reduction may be stipulated by local authority, water company or publicly-owned treatment works prior to giving discharge consents. Toxicity reduction may be evaluated using toxicity tests on activated sludge provided by the treatment works.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Remediation

    Many fresh water sources have been degraded to toxic levels by the inclusion of industrial, agricultural, and human waste products that have been discharged into the closest body of water, accidentally or deliberately for many years.

  • Final effluent monitoring for wastewater treatment industry

    Industry and municipal waste-water (sewage) treatment plants have had to respond to environmental legislation such as the Urban Waste Water Directive, IPC, IPPC and now the EPR (Environmental Permitting Regulations). As successive legislation becomes more stringent, discharge consents have been progressively tightened, and the need for self-regulation has become more important. As a consequence, on-line instrumentation has been installed throughout waste-water industry to continuously to provide final effluent monitoring and perform water analysis for key consent parameters.

    Environmental testing & compliance screening for energy/environmental sector

    Compliance screening and testing is often carried out during the manufacturing phase of a product, and all the way through its disposal or recycling process. It ensures that products and materials meet specific standards or comply with international and local directives or regulations. These standards and regulations are introduced to ensure the quality and safety of a product, and to minimise or eliminate its negative impact on the environment and people. Examples of products or materials tested are: electrical and electronic equipment (for compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive), waste oils, soil (soil remediation depending on contents of toxic metals), children’s products (for compliance with Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008), etc.

  • Industrial dedusting

    The industrial dedusting field is very varied and branches out in numerous specialized branches. For a preliminary examination of the problem it is necessary to dispose of two series of data: characteristics of the system which emits the pollutants; nature of pollutants and their characteristics.

    Waste water

    Physico-chemical parameters alone are not sufficient in obtaining reliable information on treated wastewater. Online toxicity monitoring must be performed in combination with routine chemical analysis. The assessment of biological effects of wastewater discharges in the ecosystems is today considered relevant and ecotoxicological tests identifying the ecological hazard are useful tools for the identification of environmental impacts.

  • Automation of molecular pathology

    Tumor markers found in blood, urine and body tissues can be used in diagnosing and treating cancer. Each tumor marker is indicative of a particular disease and thus can be used for the screening, monitoring and diagnosis of specific tumor types. In addition to being used in prognosis, these molecular markers help to predict the response, resistance and toxicity to therapy. For example, BCR-ABL gene sequence detection is used to diagnose chronic myelogenous leukemia and acute lymphatic leukemia.

  • Air pollution control (APC) equipments for fire laboratories

    Fire laboratories perform different types of tests and experiments to analyze the characteristics of products and materials , when exposed to fire. Using these data , manufacturers can improve their products, fire resistance, and their longevity. Although the fire is controlled in a laboratory, many toxic substances are formed and these must be removed before the air is released into the environment. EnviBATs technology is extremely effective for this type of application. It eliminates the particles of all sizes, which also has the advantage that it eliminates the burning smell.

  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity testing

    If industrial wastewater entering a treatment works contains toxic components the rate of biodegradation will be inhibited or stop completely. This can result in failed consents and will certainly give rise to operational problems. Visible indications include deflocculation, bulking and the appearance of filamentous bacteria. Sometimes, there are no visible effects. When the sludge bacteria are inhibited, there is the possibility of toxicity carryover in the effluent that is discharged to receiving waters. With new environmental legislation being introduced, worldwide, to protect the natural environment, toxin discharge is now a serious concern for treatment plant managers.

    Metal Stabilization

    In-situ geochemical fixation using a chemical reductant such as Remotox (calcium polysulfide) converts the soluble toxic metals into insoluble non-toxic compounds. Remotox has proven to be effective under a wide range of conditions. It is considered more stable and persistent than other reductants in subsurface environments, and is relatively safe to handle in the field and easy to apply.
