  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • PmCTrace to support EU´s greenhouse gas targets

    Global warming has become an important threath for the next generation. One of the causes is the emission of fossil CO2. CO2 from the incineration of wood or biomass is neutral to the climate, because if biomass is burned, new biomass is growing, removing the same portion of CO2 from the air. Increasing demand in the production of electricity Due to ...

  • Water is scarce in supply. Its protection starts with accurate monitoring.

    Due to its scarcity, in 2010, the United Nations declared clean water as a basic human right. This right can only be enforced, worldwide, through the strict regulation of water markets and the constant control of quality. The LAR pre-warning system ToxAlarm continuously monitors drinking and surface water for harmful pollutants. This unique online toxicity analyser contains a highly sensitive ...

  • Microalgae against CO2

    Due to the different environmental conditions on the planet, the harvesting of microalgae is not currently a totally efficient solution for the capture of CO2emissions and greenhouse effect gases, due to the fact that an optimised photobioreactor for its application at different latitudes of the planet does not exist. The R+D FLEXIPHO project falls within this context, a project approved by the ...

  • Nitrificants toximeter for WWTP protection

    The toximeter NitriTox of LAR Process Analysers AG is a continuous operating analyzer for the determination of nitrification toxicity. Especially in water treatment, toxic substances can harm the waste water treatment plant's biomass in a negative way and in worst case lead to a entire plant shutdown. Therefore, the monitoring of ...

  • Chemical looping is step towards fuels with lower carbon impact

    A move towards fossil fuels with reduced CO2 emissions is an integral part of the transition towards a sustainable energy future. Both the energy and transportation industries could benefit from liquid hydrocarbon fuels with a smaller carbon footprint, to help meet emissions targets. New research suggests that chemical looping technologies could be used to produce fuels with a lower impact, as a ...

  • Is climate change killing life in the Mediterranean sea?

    Global warming may be linked to increasing mass deaths of marine life in the Mediterranean Sea. By analysing past temperature changes and simulating climate change effects on a type of coral, a new Spanish study indicates that climate change may indeed be to blame. There are concerns that climate change is already reducing marine biodiversity and this may worsen in the future. Recently, the ...

  • Economic hardship in Greece has increased wood burning to keep warm in winter

    Air quality in the Greek city of Thessaloniki has worsened during the recent economic crisis, as residents burn more wood and other types of biomass to keep warm. A recent study has found a 30% increase in the concentration of fine particle (PM2.5) emissions associated with wood smoke from residential heating in 2012 and 2013, with implications for the health of local residents. ...
