  • New legislation on nanomaterial register, Belgium

    New Belgian Royal decree on the marketing and production of substances at the Nanoscale The Belgian authorities approved last month a new decree which has four objectives: Ensuring that the development of this innovative technology is being done in compliance with the protection of human health Acquiring better knowledge on the market, on characteristics of nanomaterials, on ...

  • E-cigarette waste poses potential environmental risks

    Disposable components of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), such as e-cigarettes and e-pens, could pose a potential environmental risk unless properly regulated, suggests new research. The study examined the levels of potentially toxic chemicals in disposable battery and ‘cartomiser’ ENDS components. ENDS are becoming increasingly popular in Europe, partly due to their ...

  • East Asian air pollution to have bigger global impact under climate change

    Greater amounts of air pollutants emitted in East Asia will move around the globe under climate change, a recent study predicts. Changes to wind speeds and air pressure will mean that movement of pollution from this region is enhanced under a changing climate. These results highlight the need for globally coordinated efforts to tackle air pollution and climate change. Long-range transport of air ...

  • Ozone hole grows but is below 2006 record

    Scientists from the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) have discovered that the ozone hole over Antarctica has expanded this year against what it was in 2007, but is smaller than what it was in 2006. The ozone is a protective atmospheric layer protecting Earth from harmful ultraviolet rays. Failure to shield the planet can trigger a multitude of health ailments in people and harm biodiversity. While ...

  • New particulate measurement technology enables climate change ‘quick hit’

    More accurate measurement of Black Carbon particles is now within reach of UK local authorities, air quality and climate change researchers and industry thanks to a highly-specified device, newly available via Enviro Technology.   Reducing levels of Black Carbon in the air improves human health and slows climate change. Because it is dark, Black Carbon absorbs a lot of heat from the sun and ...

  • Tracing CO2 elements in the ocean

    The surface waters of the vast Southern Ocean are suffering from 'marine anaemia' – a serious deficiency in the micronutrient iron. Just as iron deficiency negatively affects the health and productivity of humans and other land-based creatures, so it affects the phytoplankton (microscopic marine plants) existing in the oceanic realm. The environmental consequences of this condition restrict ...

  • News on filter (media) test systems - Brand-new brochure available!

    Filter Test Systems Nature is also home to effective filters. For example, the leaves of a tree can absorb up to 700 kg of dust per year. But even the best filtration and separation system is useless if its function cannot clearly and reproducibly be validated. This is what the modular test rigs for complete filters and filter media that Palas® has already been building and developing ...
