Case Study #1:

WIII (UK), a recycler, was assisted by us with a feasibility study on various chemical routes to extract manganese from reclaimed battery filler (dry batteries). After determination of the amount of realistically reclaimable manganese (as dioxide) in the recyclate stream, several methods of practical extraction of manganese from it were evaluated and a full report was issued.

Case Study #2:

EnviroSystems (UK) approached us with a view of finding a pH modifier that would allow reclassification of a large amount of fly ash from H4 (and H8) due to high pH of the waste, to non-corrosive status. The pH and total Alkali Reserve were determined by us, and a considerable number of solid, non-toxic adjuvants that were candidates for pH modifier were evaluated using bench tests. One substance in particular was found to decrease the waste’s pH sufficiently without impacting significantly on physical properties, cost or waste toxicity. A full advisory report was issued.

Case Study #3:

A British importer wanted to import a substantial amount of children’s goods from a supplier in China. Because of concerns over paint toxicity, more specifically lead containing paint, the importer first bought a sample of the goods and submitted it to us. Subsequent analysis of the paint showed it was lead free, as stated by the supplier.

Case Study #4:

A private individual was concerned with water quality of drinking water drawn from a private well. Concern was related to colour and turbidity of the water, which the Client believed to be due to agricultural run-off from a large nearby farm. Subsequent analysis showed the source of the discolouration and turbidity to be due to naturally occurring ferric hydroxide in the water. Client was advised to deploy a simple and cost effective water purification system, which was subsequently implemented.
