Sponsored content: Take control of emissions from land reclamation

After decades of neglect, the result of land pollution has reached a level of significance which is now impossible to ignore. Many sites around the world now pose a major hazard for new construction operations and have created a huge clean-up conundrum.

Gas analyser builds complete picture of contamination

OCCUPATIONAL health specialists from Wisconsin, USA, are utilising FTIR gas analysis technology to identify and quantify both known and unknown gas species in a...

Technology enables biogas plant optimisation

Environmental measurement firm Vaisala explains how a new in-line biogas monitoring technology enables the optimisation of several processes at plants

Sponsored Content: “Laser-focused on net zero”

Mark Naples, General Manager at Umicore Coating Services writes: Laser absorption spectroscopy is a powerful tool for detecting trace gases and has been widely used in the monitoring of atmospheric greenhouse gases, pollution, and respiration processes, including human breath analysis. The detection is based on the absorption of light when it propagates through a medium.
