  • Raising Dead Ships: Derelict Vessel Removal

    One of Global’s specialties is vessel salvage – if your vessel runs aground or sinks, we’ll raise it and hopefully refloat it for you. But what happens to the thousands of old, worn out vessels that sit abandoned along the coasts and harbors? Often they sink, where they pose an environmental and navigational hazard. That’s why Washington, Oregon, California and Alaska have ...

  • Use of methyl esterified eggshell membrane for treatment of aqueous solutions contaminated with anionic sulfur dye

    The present study assessed the adsorption of an anionic dye (sulfur blue) by methyl-esterified eggshell membrane (MESM), a low-cost and abundant material from waste. Adsorption kinetics were investigated using parameters such as pH, contact time, initial dye concentration, solution temperature, dosage of adsorbent, and particle size of adsorbent. After methyl esterification, the specific ...

  • Sensitivity of six subantarctic marine invertebrates to common metal contaminants

    A long history of anthropogenic activities in the relatively pristine subantarctic has resulted in areas of accumulated waste and contaminants. Sensitivities to metals of subantarctic and Antarctic species may contrast with related species from temperate and tropical areas, due to the unique characteristics of polar biota. In addition, response to contaminants may be delayed and hence longer ...

  • Compacting waste - Case Study

    Throw away little things and save big bucks? It hardly seems likely, but that's just what the U.S. Air Force is doing. At Randolph AFB, TX, they are putting usedand hazardous-air filters into a state-of-the-art industrial compaction machine and saving thousands of dollars in hazardous waste disposal. The air filters contain aircraft paint removed by plastic media blasting (PMB). Small plastic ...

  • Quantification of exposure to fecal contamination in open drains in four neighborhoods in Accra, Ghana

    In low-income countries, rapid urbanization adds pressure to already stressed water and sanitation systems that are critical to the health of communities. Drainage networks, designed for stormwater but commonly used for disposing of waste, are rarely covered completely, allowing residents to easily come into contact with their contents. This study used spatial mapping, documentation of ...

  • Detoxification of chromium slag and contaminated soil

    Chromium slag and contaminated soil are significant risks to human health. Their detoxification is a difficult problem. In this study, we tried to detoxify the chromium slag and contaminated soil by a solid reduction method. The final product is ceramist. The mechanism and process of detoxification of chromium slag and contaminated soil were studied. The residues of Cr (VI) are lower than 0.004 ...

  • Domestic fuel price and the Nigerian macroeconomy

    This study examined empirically a one–to–one nexus between domestic fuel price and various macroeconomic variables in Nigeria for the period spanning 1986 to 2011. The study adopted both a vector auto–regressive (VAR) and a vector error correction (VEC) models for appropriate analysis. For pairs of variables that are integrated of the same order but not co–integrated, the VAR model revealed that ...

  • Hazardous waste disposal in the UK

    Custom and practice have exerted a powerful influence on waste management in the UK. A notable feature is the role of local government, which remains dominant despite expanding legislation and the increasing technical complexity of waste management. The private sector has long had a major role in the transporting and disposal of hazardous waste. The Environmental Protection Act of 1990 ...

  • Geostatistical Sampling Optimization and Waste Characterization of Contaminated Premises

    Abstract This methodological study presents a geostatistical approach suitable for radiological evaluation in nuclear premises. By modelling the spatial continuity of activities, geostatistics provide sound methods to estimate and map radiological activities, together with their uncertainty. The main geostatistical principles are first recalled and illustrated on a real premise ...
