Camfil APC expands testing Laboratory
Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC), a manufacturer of dust, mist and fume collection equipment, has doubled the size of its testing laboratory to include a climate-controlled facility with a new full-size dust collection test rig. The new equipment is dedicated to testing in accordance with ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 199-2016, Method of Testing the Performance of Industrial Pulse Cleaned Dust Collectors. Unlike other air filter standards that focus on HVAC systems, the Standard 199-2016 test process analyzes how well...
France Releases 2016 Report on Nanomaterial Reporting Scheme
In November 2016, the Ministry of the Environment, Energy, and the Sea released its 2016 report, in French, Éléments issus des déclarations des substances à l’état nanoparticulaire. The report analyzes nanomaterial declarations received in 2016 for reporting year 2015. Under Decree No. 2012-232, companies that manufacture, import, and/or distribute a “substance with nanoparticle status” in an amount of at least 100 grams per year must submit an annual report...
Continuous Toxicity Monitoring of Waste Water
Toxicity is the most common disturbance to biological treatment processes – especially for nitrification. The continuous toxicity monitoring proactively protects the waste water treatment plant and hence, secures to keep the plant running. LAR`s online toxicity analyzer NitriTox continuously monitors the plants` influent for toxic pollutants. This toxicity test contains highly sensitive nitrifiers, which constantly and independently produces biomass. This means that the risk of the test organisms within...
