Natural Power adds to Heat Network Consultant status

Natural Power’s Senior Renewable Heat Engineer, Guy Milligan, has joined the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Certification Register of Heat Network Consultants following his training and exam success. He joins his colleague, Steve Smith, who was officially accepted as the first Scottish-based CIBSE registered Heat Network Consultant last year. Guy said: “We expect Scotland to increase its involvement in district heating networks as a key area of focus to help meet Government targets. There will most likely be changes to planning regulations to mandate heat ne ...


Bacteria, deadwood and climate change

With the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, an international group of researchers is investigating to what extent the forest floor serves as a carbon sink and how bacteria and fungi interact in this context. The researchers have found deadwood to be populated by a great diversity of life. "The wealth of microorganisms we found in deadwood was astounding", says the microbiologist Judith Ascher-Jenull. It has long been known that soil contains a great amount of such microorganisms. When it comes to deadwood slowly decomposing on forest soil, researchers had previously assumed ...


Quiet Mark reveals UK’s Top 10 Quietest Hand Dryers

London, March 27, 2017: The noise of super-fast hand dryers in public washrooms can be startling – for many small children they are terrifying and a distressing experience.

Even people with stronger sound tolerance dislike roaring hand dryers which are uncomfortable to bear. For facility managers, reducing hand dryer noise is high on the washroom agenda – and Quiet Mark is assisting them to make well informed buying decisions by adding the hand dryer category to its rigorou ...

3M helps customers meet new Montreal Protocol requirements

Bracknell, UK, 6th December, 2016 – 3M, the science-based technology company, has announced its support for the latest update to the Montreal Protocol agreement, which directly impacts future use of fire suppression systems based on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). In October 2016, delegates from 197 countries reached a landmark deal to phase-down use of the fastest growing greenhouse gases, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), commonly used in fire suppression equipment. Some regions – including the USA and Europe – must start cutting use of HFCs as early as 2019. Giving that fire suppression systems have ...


Stable and reliable ANAMMOX process provided by Mutag BioChip™ biofilm technology

The abbreviation ANAMMOX stands for ANaerobic AMMonium OXidation. Within the scope of this process which takes place during the biological treatment of wastewater and sewage, ammonium nitrogen (NH4+) and nitrite (NO2-) are being symproportioned to molecular nitrogen under anoxic conditions. The bacteria used for this purpose, the so-called planctomycetes, are characterized by a very slow growth (reduplication period: approx. 28 days at 30°C) and during the ANAMMOX process they consume the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2). Moreover, they do not require any dissolved oxygen in the wastewater ...

Biofilm carriers / MBBR carrier media and their respective diffusion depth

In the sector of biological wastewater treatment, it can increasingly be observed that biofilm carriers are applied in so-called Moving Bed Biofilm Reactors (MBBR). In such systems, the carriers are being mixed inside the reactor and kept in permanent suspension. The system does not require any return sludge recirculation and hence, slowly growing microorganisms which have established on the carriers are retained in the system together with the carriers themselves. The availability of high-performance biofilm carriers, which have been developed during the recent years, is certainly one of the ...
