Coverstory LCGC (Germany) „Spurenanatyik flüchtiger organischer Verbindungen“
Environmental is the most actual application field for the human and animal like
affairs. The impact of contamination too water, soil, biological aspects and air
will influence directly our private spheres. Fresh water is the most important theme
of discussion world wide and needs national and international controls.
Water is the most proofed liquid overall. To
keep sweet water the waste water is collected and recycled until it reaches fresh water quality. On the other hand water is in contact with soil. So, it is needed to keep the soil under control to avoid contaminations of water by polymer, medicine or nitrate - nitrite contamination coming as direct from the fields. The air is a good which is under discussion when we think about the CO2 Emissions and other impurities of exhaust gas streams as result from production of industrial, private or agricultural activities. Waste needs different controls when we are talking about Recycling. A special theme is the control of polymers following the European Community rules regards the WEEE/RoHs applications. In all these themes Shimadzu is a supplier of instruments which will help to sort out problems now and in the future.
