The global market for Water Analysis Instrumentation is projected to reach US$3.6 billion by 2020, driven by the ubiquity of water testing for residential, commercial, and industrial uses.

Water Analysis Instrumentation Market Trends

Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 12.9% over the analysis period. 4025. Mass science. 4025. Health-EU Newsletter. Nanotechnologies offer the possibility to develop a variety of new materials and products with a potential to contribute to all areas of society.

Health-EU Newsletter

High expectations exist for medical applications (e.g. drug delivery, imaging techniques), the energy sector (e.g. energy storage, solar panels) and material science (e.g. lighter, stronger materials). However, the use of nanotechnologies creates major challenges for risk assessors and regulators, such as how to determine when a material can be considered a nanomaterial. The EU is currently preparing a new action plan on nanosciences and nanotechnologies to address the related policy challenges.

Attention water utilities! - Future ISO guidelines for crisis management (2012-05-10) In the short term, impairment of drinking water services can seriously compromise the quality of life for many people; and in the medium term, it can threaten their ability to survive.

The continuous and orderly supply of clean and potable water is of paramount importance. Also important is the removal and safe disposal of sanitary wastewater and drainage storm-water. This prevents epidemics and poisoning of the public by contamination and urban inundation. It also protects the environment. Crisis management. Victims say they have no recourse as BP ends internal claims program. Chris Graythen / Getty Images Four years after the Deepwater Horizon explosion devastated the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 and gushing more than 200 million gallons of oil into the water, the company found responsible has shut down an internal claims program utilized by small business owners, injured rig workers and even casino companies affected by the disaster.

Victims say they have no recourse as BP ends internal claims program

At one point, BP’s internal claims program, a separate entity from the controversial Deepwater Horizon Court Supervised Settlement Program, covered thousands of claimants who weren’t eligible to join the court-supervised settlement. It also covered those who chose to opt out because they felt the settlement didn’t offer enough, but didn’t want to go through the time-consuming, expensive process of filing an independent lawsuit.

Additional tools The increasing demand by citizens and environmental organisations for cleaner rivers and lakes, groundwater and coastal beaches has been evident for considerable time.

Introduction to the new EU Water Framework Directive  - Environment

It has recently been reconfirmed by a representative opinion poll Eurobarometer in all 25 EU countries: When asked to list the five main environmental issues that Europeans are worried about, averaged results for the EU25 show that nearly half of the respondents are worried about “water pollution” (47%), with figures for individual countries going up as far as 71%. ACE Venture Lab Bootcamp – Sustainable Chemistry - Sustainable Chemistry - University of Amsterdam. The Research Priority Area Sustainable Chemistry invites Master students, PhD students and postdocs to participate in a fully-sponsored one-week bootcamp at the ACE Venture Lab, focused on sustainable chemistry.

The winner of the intensive bootcamp receives 6-12 months salary and mentoring to start-up her/his own chemical company. In order to prepare for the contest several meetings are recommended: Applications Applications should be stated in English and must fit on 1 page A4. Sustainable development goals - United Nations. Mass Spectrometry Quantitation. This tutorial applies to the quantitation of small molecules using mass spectrometry in pharmacokinetic analysis.

Mass Spectrometry Quantitation

In addition these very same principles can be applied to the quantitation of peptides and proteins in biological matrices. Traditionally before the advent of modern-day mass spectrometry quantitation was accomplished using HPLC and UV detection. HPLC PK analysis relied on: retention time, peak area and UV spectral character. Unfortunately the HPLC assay suffered from lack of sensitivity and specificity.
