  • Gulf of Mexico oil spill exposed Peregrine falcon species to harmful hydrocarbons

    Migrating tundra peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus tundrius) experienced increased levels of harmful hydrocarbons in their blood following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a new study finds. Blood from juvenile females was found to have the highest levels of contamination. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which lasted from April 20 to July 15 2010, dumped 4.9 million ...

  • Journal article evaluates methane sources in groundwater in Pennsylvania

    The findings of a new study in the journal Groundwater suggest that methane concentrations in Susquehanna County water wells in Pennsylvania can be explained without the migration of Marcellus shale gas due to hydraulic fracturing. “Testing of 1,701 water wells in northeastern Pennsylvania shows that methane is ubiquitous in groundwater, with higher concentrations observed in valleys vs. ...

  • Shale gas extraction linked to water contamination

    A new study suggests shale gas extraction leads to methane contamination of underground water sources and calls for thorough surveys of methane levels at extraction sites. The study presents a timely insight into a relatively under-researched area of science that will help support decisions on the future of shale gas exploration. Shale gas, or natural gas extracted from sedimentary rocks ...

  • US introduces new mandatory measurement and reporting of greenhouse gases

    Tough new EPA rules mean vehicle and engine manufacturers will be required to measure and report CH4 and N2O emissions from model year 2011. In April 2009 the US EPA proposed a new mandatory greenhouse gas reporting program. Although the sheer volume of CO2 in the atmosphere means that it is by far the biggest contributor to the greenhouse effect, there are other gases that also have a measurable ...

  • Monitoring contamination without excessive cost

    Environmental monitoring should be undertaken with the best available technology within reasonable cost constraints (i.e. BATNEEC). However, the best technology is often the most expensive, so instrument rental is increasingly the favoured option. James Carlyle, General Manager at specialist instrument hire company Ashtead Technology Rentals, explains. The requirement for environmental ...

  • Triad expedites brownfields redevelopment in Fairbanks

    The Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB) used Triad in 2006-2007 to assess environmental conditions at a municipal property along the Chena River in Fairbanks, AK. FNSB accelerated the site investigation as part of a brownfields assessment grant received from the U.S. EPA in 2005. Low-level contamination had been identified onsite in past investigations, but its extent and impact on future ...

  • 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 ...

  • Hiden’s HPR-40 System and Biofuels From Algae

    Algae-based biofuels such as biodiesel or bioethanol, have significant advantages over crop-based biofuels. Algae grow at a significantly faster rate than more complex plants, they have far greater yield per unit area and they can be grown in compact, closed systems. One further advantage is the short lifespan and hence a faster cycle of testing and research into suitable biofuel candidates. It ...

  • Oil spills could be cleaned up by bacteria from underground petroleum reserves

    Bacteria taken from underground petroleum reserves could be used to effectively break down crude oil from spills at sea, new research has found. The study measured the breakdown of crude oil components in simulated seawater by four bacterial strains that had been isolated from petroleum reservoirs, as well as by four genetically modified stains. The findings raise the possibility of tailor-making ...

  • Shale, other unconventional natural gas supports more than 1 million us jobs today; nearly 1.5 million by 2015, IHS study finds

    Natural gas production from shale, coal bed methane and tight sands is expected to generate significant job creation, economic growth, and revenue for federal, state and local treasuries throughout the U.S. in gas "producing" and "non-producing" states alike, according to a new IHS Global Insight study. The economic contributions are realized throughout the lower 48 states and the District of ...

  • Regenesis Oxygen Release Compound (ORC) facilitates cost-effective contaminated site closure at 29 major petroleum company sites in Midwest

    Using the enhanced in-situ bioremediation technology Oxygen Release Compound (ORC®) and targeted contaminant source removal, remediation professionals restored and secured regulatory closure for 29 petroleum- contaminated sites across Indiana at an estimated cost saving of $75,000-$900,000 per site. The cleanups used an innovative and increasingly popular site closure strategy designed to achieve ...

  • Land Contamination

    Land Contamination Identified: Contaminated land is a constant battle for developers looking to build houses / industrial sites or purpose built facilities. Contamination simply means an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment and therefore remediation or site clean up is required. Identifying contamination requires assessment, measurement and remediation. The primary contaminants ...
