Measures that help to control pollution and minimise wastes are becoming increasingly important issues for many organisations, businesses and individuals as they strive to improve their own environmental profile, reduce waste generation, meet increasingly stringent environmental discharge conditions (to air, water and land), and reduce operating costs.
Learn about improving pollution control processes through waste minimisation improvements, optimisation of costs, and techniques to help minimise industrial waste, wastewater and effluent.
This short paper covers issues that surround the use of microbes in the removal of toxic waste, in particular, the removal of vinyl chloride and dichloroethene.
This short paper deals with issues that surround rain water harvesting, savings and water conservation techniques. In the UK less than five percent of tap water is currently used for cooking and drinking, with each person using less than 17.15 litres per day for ‘life sustaining’ purposes.
