  • bacteria
  • Also newly identified as an emerging contaminant in July 2013, these bacteria produce toxins which accumulate in water, and in high concentrations can even kill animals and people. (mass.gov)
  • Coyle will be developing a new method for creating DNA profiles of biological contaminants found in marijuana including mold, viruses, fungi and bacteria. (yahoo.com)
  • Accelerated ISB is the process of adding a solution to the contaminated area that stimulates the growth of specific bacteria to degrade a targeted contaminant. (eponline.com)
  • On a site-specific basis, the levels and types of contamination are analyzed in conjunction with other site information, and a targeted solution is developed that will stimulate the bacteria to degrade the contaminants. (eponline.com)
  • cleanup
  • In 2006, Massachusetts became the first state in the nation to promulgate drinking water and waste site cleanup standards for perchlorate, a contaminant that was previously unregulated by any state or the federal government. (mass.gov)
  • At Hanford, scene of the nation's largest nuclear cleanup effort, the contaminant plume required creation of a 2,000-foot long barrier. (eponline.com)
  • plume
  • For a particular application, PNNL staff typically conduct the initial investigations including characterizing the geohydrologic conditions, specific contaminants, and size of the plume, and then design an ISRM barrier that will treat the contamination to meet appropriate requirements and the needs of the user. (eponline.com)
  • found
  • A contaminant found in recalled batches of the blood-thinner heparin was deliberately altered in a way that mimicked the real drug, the Food and Drug Administration said, a finding that will add to pressure on U.S. regulators and pharmaceutical companies to step up oversight of burgeoning Chinese drug production. (wsj.com)
  • Melamine - which can be misused to increase food's apparent protein content - has been found to be a widespread contaminant, extending well beyond dairy products in China (see also Tainted milk blamed on 'pressure to innovate' in China ). (scidev.net)
  • A contaminant found in refined vegetable oils and fats, 3-MCPD esters form from chlorinated substances during the refining process. (foodnavigator.com)
  • pesticides
  • The health effects of marijuana tainted with mold, pesticides and other contaminants aren't clear, said Mason Tvert, a Colorado-based spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington, D.C. The project was founded in 1995 to lobby for the reduction or elimination of penalties for marijuana use. (yahoo.com)
  • Maximum Conta
  • Based on these findings and other determinants, EPA will determine if a national drinking water standard, or Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL), for 1,4-dioxane should be set to protect public health. (mass.gov)
  • While it is currently unregulated by the USEPA, the World Health Organization (WHO) set a recommended maximum contaminant level of 0.2 mg/L in drinking water. (environmental-expert.com)
  • The drinking water Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) is zero, and the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) is 5 ppb. (watertechonline.com)
  • environmental
  • The group tested 134 of the top-selling protein powders in America for industrial and environmental contaminants. (ktxs.com)
  • Products like Puori "PW1 Vanilla Pure Whey Protein" and Biochem "Vanilla 100 percent Whey Protein" won the day with the least amount of industrial and environmental contaminants and/or the highest nutritional superiority. (ktxs.com)
  • Sodium was listed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 2012 Contaminant Candidate List, not with likelihood that it would be regulated, but that the guidance should be reconsidered. (watertechonline.com)
  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulates just over 90 contaminants in public drinking water systems. (environmental-expert.com)
  • process
  • That's why Coyle and her students earlier this year began developing a new process to detect contaminants in marijuana through DNA profiling and analysis. (yahoo.com)
  • Process contaminants are substances that form in food or in food ingredients when they undergo chemical changes during processing. (europa.eu)
  • Process contaminants are not intentionally added to food but they may be present as a result of the various stages of its production. (europa.eu)
  • available
  • Yesterday, the FDA said the contaminant, which has surfaced in batches of heparin made from active ingredient sourced in China, appears to be a chemically altered material derived from a cheap and widely available. (wsj.com)
  • For many other contaminants, the health effects are not well understood, or the levels and frequencies of occurrence in our environment are not clear, or efficient analytical methods to quantify and characterize have not been available. (thermofisher.com)
  • products
  • To ensure that your food and feed products are fit for consumption, you need to test for specific contaminants throughout the value chain. (sgs.com)
  • To find out how our contaminants testing services can protect the safety of your food and feed products, minimize health risks and safeguard your company against possible litigation, contact SGS now. (sgs.com)
  • surface
  • Another advantage of ISRM is that it is done below the surface, significantly reducing the potential for worker exposure to contaminants. (eponline.com)
  • Health
  • MassDEP considers 1,4-dioxane an emerging contaminant because it is toxic, widely used so that pathways for human exposure exist, and health protection standards are needed. (mass.gov)
