Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity testing

by Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd.     based in Motherwell, UNITED KINGDOM

If industrial wastewater entering a treatment works contains toxic components the rate of biodegradation will be inhibited or stop completely. This can result in failed consents and will certainly give rise to operational problems. Visible indications include deflocculation, bulking and the appearance of filamentous bacteria. Sometimes, there are no visible effects. When the sludge bacteria are inhibited, there is the possibility of toxicity carryover in the effluent that is discharged to receiving waters. With new environmental legislation being introduced, worldwide, to protect the natural environment, toxin discharge is now a serious concern for treatment plant managers.

Gas Sensing for Landfill

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas. The regulations, which run to 128 pages, describe the management and control of landfill sites, and define landfill gas as being all the gas generated from landfill waste. This includes gases generated by biodegradation of waste and gas arising from chemical reactions and the volatilisation of chemicals from the waste. These regulations require that for every landfill site, a gas management plan is put in place to ensure: • Landfill gas must be collected from all landfills receiving biodegradable waste and the landfill gas must be treat

Processing of LCD screens

by Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH     based in Kaufering, GERMANY

The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain valuable raw materials, such as metals and plastics, which have to be recovered in such a way, that the environment is not harmed. However, recycling specialists, Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH, have now developed an alternative: The company from Kaufering has developed an automatic processing system that enables mercury and other valuable raw materials to be easily extracted and recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.
