  • Mercury Rising – Enviro Technology and mercury monitoring

    The first global treaty on mercury has put the metal firmly on the emissions monitoring agenda in 2013.  The Minamata Convention – which binds governments in over 140 countries to actively prevent mercury emissions and releases – was signed in January 2013. Mercury has long since been recognised as a chemical of global concern due to both its ability to travel long distances in ...

  • EN 15267 Approved Mercury Monitoring System

    The measurement of total gaseous mercury is a challenge due to chemical reactions and contamination. The installed systems will often require a lot of maintenance, still not giving reliable results. The OPSIS System 400 is different and provides the plants with an accurate mercury analyser, that will operate with a minimum of maintenance. The simple design gives high performance with fast ...

  • `Activated carbon`: effective at locking away mercury

    Mercury is often removed from industrial emissions with 'activated carbon' which is then disposed of. A recent study assesses the adsorption of mercury by four types of activated carbon and demonstrates that they all provide a permanent means of locking away mercury. As part of the EU Mercury Strategy1 emissions of mercury from major industrial sources are subject to the EU legislation on air ...

  • Safeguarding human health from the effects of mercury

    Mercury is widely considered to be among the highest priority environmental pollutants of concern on the global scale. Although occupational exposure to inorganic mercury is a continuous problem, possible effects on broader sections of the population resulting from widespread dispersal of mercury in the environment has become a major concern in recent years. Mercury has been targeted by agencies ...

  • NASA Finds Sea Ice Decline Driving Rise in Arctic Air Pollutants

    Drastic reductions in Arctic sea ice in the last decade may be intensifying the chemical release of bromine into the atmosphere, resulting in ground-level ozone depletion and the deposit of toxic mercury in the Arctic, according to a new NASA-led study. The connection between changes in the Arctic Ocean's ice cover and bromine chemical processes is determined by the interaction between the salt ...

  • ASTM D4691 - 11 standard practice for measuring elements in water by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry

    Elemental constituents in water and wastewater need to be identified to support effective water quality monitoring and  control programs. Currently, one of the most widely used and practical means for measuring concentrations of elements is by  atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The major advantage of atomic absorption over atomic emission is the almost total lack of spectral ...

    This is an update by the same author, a Ph.D. chemical engineer, of a BCC Research report of the same name published in March 2009. In the three-plus years since then there has been a lot of talk, political posturing and research, but not much has actually happened, either in new technology or major new business thrusts, in the coal-fired power plant industry regarding its actions to control air ...


  • The Tech Awards to Honor Global Innovators Who Use Technology to Benefit Humanity

    Each year, nearly four million newborn babies never live past their first days -- all for lack of warmth. At least a billion people globally have limited -- or no access -- to clean water. And while almost half the world's population cooks with wood or other biomass fuels, indoor-air pollution generated by cooking fires contributes to the premature deaths of nearly two million people annually. ...
