PFASs (per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) are a class of almost 10.000 organofluorines. These man-made compounds - also designated «forever chemicals» – are highly persistent and at least some of them tend to accumulate and biomagnify in the environment. For that reason, more and more of these compounds are declared toxic as they pose a risk to human and environmental health. In a joint eLearning session, Theresa Steurer from Metrohm International Headquarters, Switzerland, an...

Gas chromatography (GC) is one of the most important analytical technologies, but its power relies on the availability of sensitive detectors, able to quantify a range of analytes as extensive as possible. This webinar will show the Pulsed Discharge Detector (PDD) to meet this demand by combining true universality in detection, with a broad dynamic range, and sensitivity down to the ppm and ppb range. After setting the PDD in relation to other detectors for GC, generally regarded as univer...

This eLearning demonstrates how to consolidate routine analysis of multiple parameters on a modular platform. Increasing numbers of samples, multiple parameters to be determined, mandatory compliance with national and international standards – water works, bottlers of mineral water and some sectors of the process industry all face the same challenge: How to cope with more analytical tasks while human resources in the laboratory are limited? In this eLearning session we demonstrate how...

The importance of Safety Integrity Levels and Functional Safety in Gas and Flame Detection. Gas and flame detection plays an essential role in reducing the hazards associated with toxic and flammable gases. SIL and Functional safety are extremely important parameters to consider in the design, construction, specification, and installation of a gas and flame detection system. Safety Integrity Limits or SIL are related to the broader topic of Functional Safety. The term SIL is intended to...

Biofuels, mainly derived from vegetable oils or the fermentation of plant material, have gained importance over the last few decades as more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives to fossil fuels. However, the production of raw materials for biofuel production has led to significant deforestation and competition for agricultural farmland with traditional crops used as staple food for humans and animals. To mitigate effects, new sources like algae have been developed for biofuel...

Stephen Harrison talks to Anurag Dhumal MSc in engineering and energy technology. This short discussion looks at questions like: What is dry methane reforming? What is the difference between dry methane reforming and steam supported dry methane reforming? What catalysts are used in the processes you described, are they the same or similar? During Dry methane reforming, how does one protect the catalyst? How does the carbon build up get suppressed? What levels of steam are used i...

Stephen Harrison talks to Xavier d’Hubert about decarbonising cement production. CO2 emissions come from 3 main sources, across these three areas, how can we decarbonise? What can be done to mitigate CO2 emission during the calcination reaction? Can we make the carbon capture easy and cost effective in cement production? What is the oxygen concentration at the burner, where would the oxygen come from?

Stephen Harrison talks to Xavier d’Hubert about decarbonising cement production and the three main sources of the CO2 production. This short question and answer session answers questions given to Xavier, like: Where do the CO2 emissions come from in the production of cement? What can be done inside the plant to improve energy efficiency? Do you see any plants hooked up to renewable energy?
