  • Agriculture has big role to play in curbing greenhouse gas emissions

    The pledge to eradicate hunger and poverty must go hand in hand with rapid transformations of farming and food systems to cope with a warmer world, FAO said today in a new report. Agriculture, including forestry, fisheries and livestock production, generate around a fifth of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. Agriculture must both contribute more to combating climate change while bracing to ...

  • Dependable detection of refrigerant gases with Crowcon’s F-Gas Detector

    Fluorinated (Freon) gases, which include hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), are a family of man-made chemicals containing fluorine. These ’F-gases’ are extremely powerful greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere, contributing to global warming – most are between 1,000 and 20,000 times ...

  • Crowcon`s Detective+ Gas Detector Now Has IECEx Certification For Use In High Temperatures

    Crowcon's intrinsically safe Detective+ free-standing, transportable gas detector has been granted IECEx* and ATEX** certification for use in temperatures up to +50oC. This makes it ideal for use in explosion hazard areas in extremely hot climates or in hot internal industrial environments. Typical applications include refineries and offshore rigs.

  • Preventative Maintenance: Proactive not Reactive

    Imagine one alarm or sensor failing and the whole process having to shut down whilst you wait for a service engineer call out. Can you afford to work around an unexpected plant shut down? There’s no doubt that during your gas detectors life cycle each component will need attention at different stages. The sensors will need routine calibration, replacement and frequent testing – and ...

  • Soaring prices and climate change expose fertilisers as environmentally unsustainable

    As oil and gas prices rise so does the price of artificial chemical fertilisers - the lynch-pin of industrial agriculture’s claims to be ‘efficient’. In the UK, the price of nitrogen fertiliser has doubled over the past year to around £330 per tonne. With oil currently at over $130 a barrel and with OPEC warning it could reach $200 by the end of the year, it has been suggested that fertilisers ...
