Spend 5 mins with Dave Worton, science area leader in the Gas Metrology Group at the NPL and Stephen B Harrison and learn about Gas mixtures stability. The NPL make a lot of physical reference standards, gas calibration mixtures and cylinders, NO2, VOC. Stephen asked Dave from the NPL about the challenges of creating precise, accurate, traceable and stable calibration mixtures for these chemicals?   How do you prep a cylinder to ensure its dry? What complexities do you encounte...

This interview with David R. Worton of NPL, conducted by Stephen B Harrison, covers two of the most fascinating applications of gas analysis. Measurement of isotopes to identify the sources of green house gases and finger printing of human breath for clinical diagnostics. Stephen is convinced that analytical science has a huge and positive role to play in medicine and environmental protection. In this short, 6 minute video, Stephen interviews Dave from the NPL asking the following questi...

Due to contaminants complexity and the low amount at which pollutants are usually present in environmental samples, their analytical determination can be particularly challenging. Conventional sample preparation methods make use of large solvent volumes and involve intensive sample manipulation that can lead to sample contamination or losses of analytes. Even modern extraction technologies are expensive and offer limited productivity. To overcome these disadvantages, Milestone developed a rap...

From source water to wastewater, this webcast will outline the importance of tracking carbon levels. The ability to obtain carbon data with an online or laboratory TOC analyzer is critical to understanding the effectiveness of a plant’s treatment process and identifying process impurities. SUEZ will share case studies that highlight how laboratory and online TOC analysis can be utilized to drive optimal performance.

The ability to accurately determine organic loading and organic removal efficiencies go beyond regulatory compliance requirements. By acquiring real-time organic data at upstream treatment steps, immense opportunities to optimize a WWTP’s performance exists. Using TOC data to monitor early treatment steps, empowers operators with the knowledge to make critical process decisions. Decisions that if not made in a timely matter, would lead to an inability to manage varying wastewater influent a...

Organic load is one of the most important parameters for discharge control of municipal and industrial wastewater. Permissible limits are guided through regulations and must be monitored accordingly. However, further opportunity to optimize plant performance exists by monitoring organic loading in upstream treatment processes. The use of on-line controls allows limit values to be adhered to, products to be saved, and plants to be protected against unforeseen events. Total Organic Carbon (T...

Methane emissions are responsible for about 25% of current global warming and the oil and gas sector is one of the largest anthropogenic sources of methane. The IPCC, in its “Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees”, noted that emissions of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants like methane and black carbon need to be reduced by 35% or more by 2050 to stay below the 1.5 degrees target, while the International Energy Agency identified upstream methane emissions as one of the most importan...

Switching from coal-fired to gas-fired electricity generation is a way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, as life cycle emissions of CO2 are less from gas power stations than coal. However, if methane emissions are also considered, the picture becomes less clear-cut, as the literature shows a large variability in upstream fugitive methane emissions. In some cases, there may be more upstream methane emissions from gas-fired electricity generation, however this does not overwhelm the benefits...

In-situ measurement of emissions (such as methane and ethane) from offshore oil and gas platforms is difficult, and limited, due to logistical problems. However, information about such emissions is vital to both the oil and gas industry and environmental monitors. In context, the energy supply sector was responsible for 11% of the UK's methane emissions in 2016. Starting with the Elgin uncontrolled leak in 2012, the UK National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) has made repeated airbor...
