  • Mercury free solutions for autoclave temperature monitoring

    Mercury is a naturally occurring element found in the air, water and soil however exposure to the substance, even in small amounts, can lead to severe health and ecosystem issues. Mercury in products can find it’s way into the environment in all sorts of ways such as manufacturing, spills, recycling and disposal. Due to the health risks posed products such ...

  • Ebola Waste Preparedness

    A straight forward plan to deal with an issue that may seem new to many of you however this issue has been successfully addressed for decades. It’s all over the news, landfills that won’t accept ashes from incinerated waste, towns and states that won’t let waste be transported across their borders, special permits, Category A Packaging, warehouses full of drums and 6mil liners. ...

  • Highly crystalline hydrothermal ZnO nanowires as photoanodes in DSCs

    Vertically aligned ZnO nanowires (NWs) were prepared inside an autoclave by a hydrothermal procedure at temperatures above 100°C (HP). The effects of synthesis temperature and time on the morphology of ZnO NWs were carefully studied. The performance of HP ZnO NWs was compared with that of ZnO NWs grown by a conventional ambient pressure hydrothermal method at temperatures below 100°C (LP) ...

  • Effective growth of dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum by cultivating the cells using municipal wastewater as nutrient source

    Several studies have been conducted worldwide in order to develop a more economical method for mass algal cultivation so that more cost-effective biomass production can be accessed. One of the directions is to reduce production costs by using wastewater as a nutrient source in algal cell cultivation. The growth ability of a red-tide causative dinoflagellate species, Prorocentrum minimum, in ...

  • Disruption of Synechocystis PCC 6803 for lipid extraction

    In order to extract intracellular lipids from cyanobacterial Synechocystis PCC 6803 for biofuel production, seven cell-disruption methods – autoclaving, bead beating, freeze drying, French press, microwave, pulsed electric fields (PEF), and ultrasound – were tested prior to lipid extraction to make intracellular lipids more accessible by organic solvents. The different methods brought about ...

  • Biotic and abiotic anaerobic transformations of trichloroethene and cis-1,2-dichloroethene in fractured sandstone

    A fractured sandstone aquifer at an industrial site in southern California is contaminated with trichloroethene (TCE) and cis- 1,2-dichloroethene (cis-DCE) to depths in excess of 244 m. Field monitoring data suggest thatTCEis undergoing reduction to cis- DCE and that additional attenuation is occurring. However, vinyl chloride (VC)andethenehavenotbeendetected in significant amounts, so that if ...

  • The biological removal of phosphorus from simulated wastewater using miniature bioreactors

    The objective of this study was to utilize miniature bioreactors in a laboratory-scale setting to biologically deplete excessive amounts of phosphorus (P). P occurring in wastewater is usually found in the form of phosphate (PO4). The potential for phosphate-removing bacteria (PRB) to overload significant levels of PO4 under aerobic/anaerobic conditions was observed and evaluated. Wastewater ...

  • Sources and levels of potentially toxic elements in the biodegradable fraction of autoclaved non-segregated household waste and its compost/digestate

    Waste that reflected the average UK composition of household waste was treated by autoclaving at the three set pressure/temperature levels of 2.7 bar/130 °C, 6.2 bar/160 °C and 15.5 bar/200 °C. The biodegradable fraction of the autoclaved household waste ('floc') was manually separated by screening and underwent characterization for its Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb, Hg, Ni, and Zn content. Autoclaving did not ...

  • Relating Certain Concepts

    I wrote about a forty year logarithmic growth of technology in the April 2007 issue of Lab Manager . We talked about increasing numbers and kinds of instruments, the increasing number of analytes, the need for greater and greater sensitivity, and the need for data validation and normalization. Let’s now tackle that first facet – instrumentation. Instruments are developed for a few basic reasons: ...


  • Conventional and Alternative Technologies for the Treatment of Infectious Waste

    Abstract The limited scientific information about infectious waste, and the heightened public awareness of this special component of the waste stream, have contributed to the implementation or strengthening of the regulations in this area. This paper proposes a general working definition of infectious waste, and describes the systems used to limit its potential occupational and public health ...
