New continuous metals monitor reveals environmental improvement opportunities

A new continuous metals monitoring technology was recently trialled at a river by a Talc production plant in central Finland. The trial was conducted to assess the possibility of avoiding the need to sample and analyse large numbers of environmental water samples. “The results were extremely enlightening,” explains Jari Sirviö, Development Engineer for Elementis, the plant’s owner. “Luckily, a heavy rainfall event occurred during the brief trial, and we discovered a rapid increase, and subsequent decrease, in nickel concentration that closely followed the rain. This strong correlation between rainfall and nickel provides an important insight into the behaviour of nickel, and raises a number of important questions; it also highlights the enormous benefits that can be gained from continuous monitoring.”

A Michelin-Starred Adventure: Team-Building with Chef Maulavirta at Sipoonkorpi National Park

In the dynamic world of analytical chemistry, the shift toward more sustainable and environmentally friendly practices is increasingly crucial. As scientific understanding deepens, so does awareness of the environmental and health impacts of traditional analytical methods. These conventional approaches often rely on hazardous chemicals and produce considerable waste, posing significant risks to both human health and the environment. Transitioning to greener alternatives, such as our µDOES© technology, and optimizing resource utilization are vital steps toward reducing our ecological footprint.
