Rarely does mention of the pharmaceutical industry conjure up images of smoke stacks, pollution and environmental damage, yet the sector’s impact on every facet of our environment is vast. A recent study carried out by researchers at McMaster University found the global pharmaceutical industry is not only a significant contributor to global warming, but it is also dirtier than the global automotive production sector.1 It was a surprise to find how little attention researchers have paid to the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions. Only two other...

Monitoring and Managing Malodours

Monitoring and Managing Malodours

The impact of environmental stressors on public health is now widely recognised. The World Heatlh Organization has published extensive guidance on the health risks associated with environmental noise. If we look at the contribution of odour and noise as causes of environmental quality complaints by the public, the contribution is typically equal. It is therefore remarkable that where an international binding regulatory framework for regulating environmental noise exists in the European Union, such a framework is absent for regulating environmental malodours. Like odour, environmental noise...

From chocolate bars to vehicle engines, computers, and even city apartments, you don’t have to look far to see things are getting smaller. For cheap and easy pill testing and hydrocarbon detection, the future of spectroscopy is here – and the future, is miniature. This article considers the miniaturization of gas sensors from two perspectives: the testing of pharmaceuticals, and the detection of hydrocarbon. Pill testing, simplified In the rush of daily life it can be easy to confuse or mix up pills, especially if...
