Environmental monitoring with high-precision environmental analyzers: important step towards a cleaner future

Preserving nature while steadily increasing our resource-intensive living standard: This is perhaps the greatest challenge of our time. And it requires state-of-the-art environmental analyzers for environmental analysis.

Our Planet. Our Priority.

Humankind has always had an ambivalent relationship towards environment: We need it, and yet we exploit it. We love it, and at the same time, we face the task of reconciling this with a modern, resource-intensive lifestyle. As living standards and population grow, this problem intensifies.

Take for example water: More and more people with ever increasing standards of living are polluting more and more amounts of water while, simultaneously, the need for fresh, clean drinking water grows. We develop resistant materials - many of which nature alone cannot degrade. We fertilize soil for better yields; yet on the other hand we pollute the grounds and thus indirectly our food.

And finally, our huge energy demand leads to high greenhouse gas emissions and thus to global warming and other negative consequences: All this harms nature, destroys ecosystems, and reduces biodiversity – and by that also threatens our health.

Precise environmental analysis means more accurate data for better response.

We leave many fatal footprints To address this issue and to better protect our environment and our future, we need precise knowledge about how we are harming our environment.

As a branch of chemical analysis, environmental analysis or environmental monitoring is used for the qualitative and quantitative examination of substances in ambient and indoor air, soil and water or wastewater. Certainly, even the earliest humans took a close look at their environment for safety and health reasons. The first verifiable chemical analysis was dated back to the end of the 18th century, when Berlin chemist Andreas Sigismund Marggraf examined water for a wide variety of substances. He was later followed by the Englishman Robert Angus Smith, who made a comprehensive rainwater analysis.

Today, many analysis instruments and methods are available for environmental monitoring. Thanks to technological advances, their accuracy is constantly increasing while detection limits are lowered.

For environmental monitoring, the substances to be analyzed are separated using gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, or ion chromatographs. Often samples have to be enriched to increase the relative amount of the substance to be analyzed. Partially, solids need to be extracted with a solvent first. Gaseous samples may only be analyzed after liquid introduction. Additionally, it is often necessary to remove unwanted elements by purification before you can carry out the actual analysis.

Methods such as mass spectrometry, UV/VIS spectroscopy, or atomic absorption spectrometry, are used for the analysis. They help you to determine either individual substances or sum parameters  – depending on the reason for environmental testing, often according to state regulations.

The individual substances analyzed for environmental monitoring include:

  • heavy metals such as mercury
  • pesticides
  • biphenyls
  • dioxins
  • mineral oil hydrocarbons
  • sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides
  • greenhouse gases
  • ozone
  • particulate matter

In environmental analysis, also sum parameters are often determined. They combine one or more groups of substances. This makes it relatively easy to record and report pollutants as a compound, such as

  • chemical oxygen demand (COD),
  • adsorbable organically bound halogens (AOX),
  • total organic carbon (TOC),
  • polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH)
