Third-generation photoionisation detector (PID)-based instruments, the MiniRAE 3000 and ppbRAE 3000 are suitable for applications in industrial settings, environmental monitoring, indoor air quality and hazardous materials response applications. The products are intended for use where hydrocarbon-based chemicals pose a toxic threat. They can be used for both leak detection and industrial safety. The instruments both have intrinsic safety certifications for use in hazardous environments in the US and Canada.
Exair's Ultrasonic Leak Detector (ULD) is a handheld instrument that can locate costly leaks in a compressed air system. Leaks often account for over 30% of the compressed air consumed in industrial plants. A huge annual air savings worth tens of thousands of dollars is possible when the leaks are located and repaired. Testing the various unions, pipes, valves and fittings of a complete installation can be done quickly and effectively at distances up to 6.1 m away.
An Australian owned and run water technology provider has caught the wave of industry growth, announcing its third major acquisition in 18 months.
The Powerboss Eluma system provides a low energy alternative to high intensity discharge (HID) lighting. While matching or exceeding light levels of a typical 400 W HID light, the Eluma system will only use around 108-230 W.
Transpacific Industries Group (Transpacific) in association with Country Energy and the Bathurst Regional Council have announced the start of construction on a â€˜green energyâ€™ (landfill gas fired) power station at Bathurst Waste Management Facility in Bathurst, NSW.
Caltex and Dalby Bio-Refinery Limited (DBRL) have announced a major contract for supply of ethanol from DBRL's new ethanol plant to be built at Dalby in Queensland's Darling Downs.
National greenhouse emissions reporting will commence by 1 July 2008 through purpose-built legislation or the National Pollutant Inventory, according to the Council for the Australian Federation.
Carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels have accelerated globally at a far greater rate than expected over recent years, according to a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
A new study into two very different attempts to introduce zero-emission vehicles by governments highlights how cultural differences can influence policy on technological innovation
Solar Systemsâ€™ mega scale solar power technology has been endorsed under the Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate (AP6). Solar Systems technology generates electricity with zero greenhouse gas emissions.
The stainless steel iTrans monitor for fixed-point gas detection is built to withstand corrosion. The monitor is suitable for installations in harsh environments such as offshore drilling platforms, chemical plants or applications near a saltwater coastline.
The Australian Coal Association has welcomed an announcement by the federal government of $125 million funding for two important clean coal and solar energy demonstration projects under the governmentâ€™s Low Emissions Technology Development Fund.
The Goyen EMP7 self-contained particulate emission monitor is accurate for most particle and particle characteristics and covers a wide range of dust concentrations, insertion temperatures, duct sizes and stack materials.
Sir Richard Branson has appealed to the rest of the world's aviation industry to follow his lead in reducing the carbon emissions that the industry generates
The Eneloop battery is claimed to be the first ready-to-use NiMH rechargeable battery. It uses technology enabling the batteries to be supplied to the consumer pre-charged and ready-to-use straight off the shelf.
