  • Water Quality System

    Let me explain that our basic idea is how better to use the not many typologies (and parameters) of on-line sensors available on market to make low-cost sustainable intelligent monitoring. We all know that the total water quality is related to about fifty of quality measurement analytic parameters, but on-site and in on-line way, it is possible to detect only about ten electro-chemical or ISE ...

  • Putting a price on water quality

    One way to clean-up water pollution is to award 'credits' to facilities that reduce their emissions. These credits can then be traded with other facilities to compensate for pollution outputs. This controls overall pollutions levels, while creating an economic incentive to reduce emissions. Research using models that simulate water quality has been used to establish the value of these credits and ...
