  • Land Surveying for Volatile Organics Detection with PID

    Environmental Consultants and contractors have the responsibility of monitoring the remediation of industrial waste sites and closed military bases. With Government pressure to develop brownfield sites, the environmental consultant must identify contamination and ensure clean-up is effective. A simple method is to use PIDs to rule out the presence of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in ...

  • Sky high – Fast detection of total organic carbon peak loads

    Normally, production facilities have low waste water discharge levels, mostly within the range of 1,000 ppm TOC (total organic carbon). However, occasionally the installation can suffer failures or process disturbances take place. In this case, the range could very well reach a level of up to 50,000 ppm. If these go ...

  • Rapid Detection of Pathogens and Mold in

    Society has become acutely aware that infection-causing pathogens can be found in food, drinking water and the surrounding environment. Properly testing for pathogens is a very effective approach for preventing these infections. In spring and summer, E.coli O157:H7, Salmonella, Clostridium botulinum and Shigella are the common food borne bacterial pathogens. Helicobacter pylori and Enterovirus ...


  • ASTM D4129 - 05(2012) Standard Test Method for Total and Organic Carbon in Water by High Temperature Oxidation and by Coulometric Detection

    This test method is necessary because of the need for rapid reliable tests for carbonaceous material in waters and sediments. It is used for determining the concentration of organic carbon in water that comes from a variety of natural, domestic, and industrial sources. Typically, these measurements are used to monitor organic pollutants in domestic and industrial waste water. When a ...

  • Organic Waste Discharge

    A new ASTM subcommittee will develop proposed standards to analyze organic compounds discharged into sanitary sewers. Subcommittee D34.02 on Discharge of Organic Wastes into Sanitary Sewers is part of ASTM International Committee D34 on Waste Management. “Considering the need for low detection limits and measurements that would assure all of ...

  • Organic load under control

    The chemical oxygen demand is the most commonly used parameter to determine the organic load of wastewater. Precise online measurement of COD in the inlet of wastewater treatment plants helps to re-direct heavily loaded water into buffer basins while measurement in the outlet enables plant managers to evaluate the cleaning capacity of their plants. In industrial wastewater treatment, COD is ...

  • Remote, underwater detection of harmful algae

    This achievement represents a significant milestone in NOAA's effort to monitor the type and toxicity of harmful algal blooms (HABs). HABs are considered to be increasing not only in their global distribution, but also in the frequency, duration, and severity of their effects. HABs damage coastal ecosystem health and pose threats to humans as well as marine life. Climate change is expected to ...

  • A detectable trail: Measuring radioactivity in environment

    Radionuclides, or radioactive isotopes as they are often called, play an important part in the technologies that provide modern societies with food, water and medicine. But, if they are released into the environment through poor disposal, or by accident, they can be harmful to humans, animals and plants. One such example is the ingestion of radioactive contamination from tainted plants, animals ...

  • Pesticides - Easier detection of pollution and impact in rivers

    The long-term effects of pesticides on living organisms in rivers and on water quality can now be assessed more easily. Researchers from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) have developed a tool that can estimate the harmful effect of pesticides, such as those flushed into rivers and streams from agricultural land, within minutes. 'It used to be very difficult to detect which ...

  • First detection of novel flame retardants in Antarctic species

    Groups of chemicals used as flame retardants were present in the bodies of Antarctic rock cod (Trematomus bernacchii), young gentoo penguin (Pygoscelis papua), and brown skua seabird (Stercorarius antarcticus) collected from King George Island, Antarctica. This study is the first to find some of these chemicals in Antarctica, confirming that they undergo long-range transport and can reach ...

  • Gas detection solutions for monitoring compressed breathing air

    At first glance the physiological demands of the firefighter, the scuba diver and the hospital patient have little in common. One is trained to deal with fire and rescue, one swims underwater and one is concerned with either regaining or improving their health. Yet all three depend to some extent on a safe source of compressed breathing air. In the case of the firefighter, portable breathing sets ...

  • Chinese Customs Officers Train to Detect Environmental Crimes

    Shanghai, China – Specialized training to help customs officers deal with environmental crimes is being intensified in the Asia Pacific region with help from experts in China. Worldwide, environmental crime and illegal trade is, by some estimates, valued at more than US$100 billion a year. The initiative, involving the UN Environment Programme, UNEP, and the secretariats of the multilateral ...

  • New method for detecting microplastic particles in fish stomachs

    A novel approach for identifying and isolating anthropogenic – including microplastic – particles in fish stomachs has been devised by researchers in Belgium. The new method may enable scientists and policymakers to better assess the presence, quantity and composition of particles ingested by marine life, and improve understanding of the environmental effects of marine plastic ...

  • Worms turn detective to help with contaminated land

    Dr Mark Hodson of the University of Reading presented new research on how earthworms can help scientists understand more about contaminated soil and its potential impact on house building on brownfield sites. The research, which was unveiled at the BA Festival of Science in Liverpool, examines why some populations of earthworms can inhabit contaminated soil and what impact earthworms have on ...
