  • 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) ...

  • Plants: a source of `green` plastics?

    Most plastics are derived from fossil fuels, but new research suggests that soon it may be possible to 'grow' plastics. With around 100 million tonnes of plastics used each year worldwide, finding a renewable and biodegradable source of plastics could help reduce both carbon emissions and landfill waste. Plants have been used to produce plastics for some time, with plastics made from plant ...

  • Mining the sea of plastic

    Earlier this month, two ships sailed from California to study a large patch of the Pacific Ocean, known as the 'plastic vortex,' where maritime currents are causing plastic litter to congregate. Scientists aboard will try to determine how much plastic is in the vortex and its impact on marine life. They will also consider whether it can be recovered. One of the ships is a sailboat named Kaisei; ...

  • Plastic recycling: future potential

    At the conference on the future of plastic recycling, 2009, which was held in Krefeld at the beginning of September, Herbert Snell, vice-president of the Federal Association for Secondary Raw Materials (BVSE), said that the economic crisis had affected the sector, but there is no reason to make a drama out of it. The crisis will not kill off plastic recycling, but provide new opportunities. Snell ...
