    Householders in Midlands in trial to remedy nation's draughty unblocked chimneys

    Across England there are 9 million fireplaces which are not permanently blocked. Often equivalent to keeping a window open at all times, an unblocked chimney can add significant cost to the typical heating bill as warm air escapes up through the chimney and into the atmosphere.

    New rewilding network aims to boost nature on 300,000 acres

    A new network from charity Rewilding Britain aims to spearhead a massive and rapid rewilding across Britain, in its first three years aiming to catalyse the return of nature to 300,000 acres, an area the size of Greater Manchester or the North York Moors National Park.

    Biffa's switch to rail transport of inert waste greatly reduces carbon emissions

    Biffa saves 6,600 tonnes of CO2 emissions transporting material by rail

    Waste firm Biffa reveals it has saved 6,600 tonnes of CO2 emissions by switching to the usage of rail links for the transportation of mostly inert waste material to its facilities. This follows the Group's strategic rail partnership with GB Railfreight to increase its capacity for transportation via rail, thereby reducing its reliance on road haulage. Since last year, the Group has transported over 600,000 tonnes of inert waste by rail.

CTG launch their new V-Lux Fluorometer: A New Approach to Fluorescence Measurements

The V-Lux Fluorometer is configured to provide high quality in situ detection of either Algae, Aromatic Hydrocarbons or Tryptophan like fluorescence. The new V-Lux Multi-parameter fluorometer, from water quality sensor designer Chelsea Technologies Group (CTG), was launched at WEFTEC 2017 on 2nd October from Booth No 7954.

chelsea web mktplce oct 17"Field fluorometers have traditionally been challenged by interfering fluorescence from non-target compounds, high turbidity levels and high concentrations which can directly impact the accuracy of the readings obtained," said CTG Sales Manager, Justin Dunning.

"This new fluorometer includes 3 fluorescence channels as well as absorption, turbidity and temperature channels which allow corrections from these potential interferences, providing unambiguous data of the target compounds and providing range levels previously unobtainable from field fluorometers."

V-Lux is ideally suited for monitoring within both water and waste water processes, as well as environmental monitoring for pollution within both river and marine environments. Applications include monitoring of road and airport apron run-off, bathing waters and shellfish waters monitoring, and discharge monitoring within the oil and gas sector.

The new fluorometer can be used as a hand-held instrument, part of a flow-through system or deployed from gliders or underwater vehicles.
