Through partnership with IDAEA-CSIC two AQMesh pods were co-located with a reference station and scaled locally in Barcelona (ref. Advanced user mode), providing R2 of 0.97 for NO and 0.89 for NO2. One pod was then moved to a second reference point within the city to establish repeatability of results using the scaling factors derived from the first reference. This resulted in a correlation of 0.98 for NO, and 0.86 for NO2. This trial shows that a high degree of air quality monitoring accuracy can be achieved through local scaling and this accuracy is maintained when AQMesh is then used to monitor independently in new locations.
Minamata Convention on Mercury Achieves Ratification: International Use and Mining of Mercury Targeted for Scale Down
The Minamata Convention on Mercury (Convention), a global treaty aimed at scaling down mercury use and production developed by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), recently surpassed the 50-country threshold required for it to become legally binding for all of its parties. This occurred on May 18, 2017, when the European Union (EU) and seven of its member states (Bulgaria, Denmark, Hungary, Malta, the Netherlands, Romania, and Sweden) ratified the Convention. The United States ratified the Convention...

Yet another `Real world´ test of Sialex®Ring`s ability to remove and control `Boiler Scale´
A particularly difficult "test" was selected. It should be said that in quite a few cases Sialex®Ring is selected when all else fails. However, by demonstrating the products abilities, more companies are exposed to the products capabilities. THe test in this case; a boiler using locally sourced , untreated water from a "hard" water area (hardness expressed as Caco3 = 1,130mg/l.) The boiler already exhibited signs of severe "Scale" build-up before testing began. "Feed water" water hardness was monitored and...
Successful Testing of Full-Scale Preburner Keeps AR1 Engine on Schedule for 2019
Aerojet Rocketdyne, a subsidiary of Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AJRD), recently conducted hot-fire tests to validate the design of the preburner for the AR1 rocket engine, which represents the nation`s lowest-risk, lowest-cost-to-the-taxpayer and fastest path to replacing the Russian-built RD-180 engine currently used to launch most U.S. national security payloads into space. "This important milestone keeps AR1 squarely on track for flight readiness in 2019," said Aerojet Rocketdyne CEO and President...
