  • Getting the most from substance flow analyses

    New research from Sweden identifies the characteristics of substance flow analyses that make them useful to policy makers. Substance flow analyses that focus on measuring rather than modelling pollution and which are aligned to existing measures are more likely to influence policy. Substance flow analysis (SFA) or material flow analysis (MFA) is a method of studying the stocks and flows of ...

  • Fingerprinting emissions from waste incinerators

    The use of MWIs to dispose of materials such as plastic, glass and food waste is increasing in the UK due to EU restrictions on the use of landfill. The European Industrial Emissions Directive, which aims to protect the environment and human health, imposes strict limits on emissions of heavy metals and other pollutants from MWIs. However, the impact of MWI emissions on ambient air pollution is ...

  • New lab application for cost-efficient metals analysis

    COGENT Environmental has developed a new test cell, the 'SV Labcell', for use with company's market leading portable metals analyser, the PDV 6000plus. The SV Labcell provides lower levels of detection and greater flexibility in analytical methodology, effectively turning the PDV 6000plus into a precise analytical laboratory instrument. The PDV 6000plus is a portable metals analyser that ...

  • Fishing boat wastewater shown to be potentially harmful

    Wastewater emptied from commercial fishing boats is an overlooked source of marine pollution, a new US study shows. The researchers suggest that this type of pollution should be given further consideration when assessing the overall environmental impact of fishing, as it may pose a risk to human health and marine life. Life-cycle assessments that analyse the environmental impacts of ...

  • Columbia Analytical develops protocol for testing corrosion and odor in Chinese drywall

    Columbia Analytical Services, Inc. announces it has established a reliable test protocol for identifying odor and corrosion problems in drywall. The tests identify problems with drywall, generally reported as “Chinese drywall,” that initially affected many homes in the southeastern United States. “Our team has developed three technically superior and legally-defensible analytical tests related to ...


  • Recycling cellphones

    The Federation of Information, Communication and Organisational Technology Companies (SWICO) believes the return rate for old mobile phones is unacceptable. For PCs, the recycling rate is about 85%, but only 15% for mobile phones, according to SWICO. This means that in Switzerland about 1,000 tonnes of recyclable materials are wasted [each year]. SWICO wants recycling of cellphones to become as ...


  • Composition of particulate matter influences its long-term health effects

    A link between particulate matter (PM) exposure and inflammatory disease has been shown by many studies, but few have explored how the chemical composition of PM influences inflammatory processes. This study investigated the connection between different components of PM and markers of inflammation in the blood, finding that long-term exposure to transition metals, emitted by traffic and industry, ...

  • Prognos presents new Atlas of Secondary Raw Materials for Europe

    Waste management and environmental efficiency do not exclude one another. In the run up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen it has again become evident that waste management protects the climate, replaces valuable raw materials and delivers energy. In the 2nd European Atlas of Secondary Raw Materials presented today, Prognos analyses 17 selected waste streams and their resource ...

  • Nanoparticles present in residues of waste incineration plant

    The use of nanomaterials in consumer goods is growing, as is their presence in waste. A new study is the first to follow the fate of engineered nanoparticles through the entire waste incineration chain. The results indicate current filter technology is effective in removing nanoparticles from flue gas, but that nanoparticles also bind to residues, such as fly ash and slag, which eventually end up ...

  • Mining metals from heat-treated landfill proven to be economically viable

    Mining metals from landfill sites can be economically viable, a recent project in the US has demonstrated. Approximately 34 352 tonnes of metals, conservatively valued at US$7.42 million (€6.67 million) were recovered from the 8 hectare ashfill site, according to researchers who analysed the project. Across the world, mountains of municipal solid waste (MSW) are produced — and ...
