  • SMT PAH 1 Column

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs, also polyaromatic hydrocarbons or polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons) are large organic compounds produced during combustion. Many of these compounds are carcinogenic and are often found in water, air and other natural habitats. Monitoring of these compounds is very crucial for a healthy environment. The major challenge in HPLC analysis of PAHs is in ...

  • Hydrocarbon in glycol detection

    Refineries and Gas Processing Plants use Glycol to dehydrate oil and gas, reducing the amount of water to less than 0.5%.  Once the glycol has dehydrated the hydrocarbon the glycol is “rich” with water and hydrocarbon.  In order to reuse the glycol, the water and hydrocarbons are removed in a regeneration process.  Normally, a laboratory analysis procedure is used to determine the ...

  • Dangerous hydrocarbons in toys

    The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment has evaluated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and found that they endanger children's health. The increasing cases of cancer in children require urgent action to minimise exposure to CMR substances as much as possible. Numerous polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are carcinogenic but nevertheless part of toys made of rubber or elastomers. The German ...


  • Plastic Recycling

    Only 2.5 % of all municipal waste is selectively collected in Poland. Plastic waste comprises around 14 % of all Polish domestic waste, most of it PET. However, only 6% of it is recycled, while in Europe the figure is 45%! PET processing is done by three companies in Poland: Elana PET - part of the capital group Boryszew (produces 120,000 tons of bottles per year), Polowat (18,000 tons per year) ...
