  • Measuring methane

    At the UK's first viable compact anaerobic digester (AD) plant aimed at local food waste treatment, a Geotech GA3000 fixed biogas analyser monitors methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S). The plant, a modular scalable AD system, unveiled by React Environmental in July 2012 at Llangadog, Carmarthenshire, can handle some 1,000 ...

  • Comply with Highly Regulated Oil in Water Measurements

    The Petroleum Industry – both offshore and onshore -- has regulations that limit the amount of oil in discharged water.  Fixed filter infrared (IR) analyzers have been used to test oil levels in produced water on drilling platforms for over 45 years.  On oil rigs where real estate is at a premium, infrared analyzers such as the Wilks InfraCal Analyzers are compact (typically 6 ...

Australia's blueprint for water reform – the National Water Initiative (NWI) – recognises ...

  • New ways of measuring our water environment

    General Quality Assessment figures from the Environment Agency released this week show that 76 per cent of all UK rivers in the UK achieved ‘good’ or better status for chemical water quality in 2007. From 2008, the new European Water Framework Directive replaces General Quality Assessment,  which means that the way of measuring the quality of our water bodies has changed. As well as rivers, ...

  • Why measure? Introducing the Water Indicator Application

    Our daily life is full of indicators: from GDP providing an indication of economic health, to grades in school to show how a student has performed, to body temperature confirming whether or not a patient has a fever. But, what are indicators and why are they important? Indicators are a measurement or value that gives you an idea of what something is like. They help us to track the development of ...
