Learn how the UK dealt with Legionnaires' disease 35 years ago

The following presentation takes a look at Legionnaires’ disease, from a health and safety perspective dating back to 1991. It considers Legionella bacteria and where it is commonly found, how Legionella infection occurs, legionellosis, Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks and common sources of contamination including hot and cold water services and cooling towers.

Legionnaires’ disease – A Perspective from 1991

Although the video presentation is now 35 years old much of it still relevant today. In 1976 a group of ex-service men attended a reunion of the America Legion. 182 of them suffered severe pneumonia, 29 died… the name ‘Legionnaires’ disease’ was coined. There is a milder illness called Pontiac Fever. This and another disease caused by the bacteria of the Legionella family are called legionellosis.

Research has shown how the disease spreads and how it can be controlled. Water is a basic substance to life; it contains millions of microscopic organisms one of which can be the bacteria Legionella. In factories and hospitals and on the roof tops of hotels and offices we can create the right conditions for Legionella to multiply, from industrial processes, hot water systems and cooling towers.
Where do you find Legionella?

It’s not known exactly how systems can become seeded with Legionella – there is some evidence that the organism is washed into pipe work during building construction. It may also enter in low numbers through the mains water supply.

Airborne droplets or particles containing Legionella may contaminate reservoirs, open tanks and cooling ponds. Once the system is contaminated and given the right temperature range, intermittent use or stagnation. Legionella will multiply and colonise that system. The rate at which is multiplies is determined by water temperature. Between 20 and 45 degree Celsius growth may be rapid, but above 50 degrees the organism will begin to die... more >>

Learn more about Renewable Energy for UK Business with this useful Case Study

The following presentation takes a look at a renewable energy for business case study involving a UK chemical company based in Newport, South Wales. It looks at how they became more energy efficient, generating their own energy and even exporting electricity back to the grid.

UK renewable energy case study

A greener business using greener energy. Poor energy efficiency costs UK businesses more than £6 billion per year.

Chemical company in South Wales

A number of years ago we decided that it was very important to be energy efficient so we have worked on a number of projects.

Becoming more self sufficient

The wind turbines for example on a moderately windy day we can be self sufficient in electricity if we look at overall terms last year we generated 49% of our electricity from those turbines.

Exporting energy back to the grid

The gas turbine that we have got, that was a project in 2008 we utilised some turbines that were spare from a factory that we owned near Wrexham and we relocated them here and combined them with a boiler that we had to make a combined heating plant and that today we generate power efficiently here on site and export that to the grid.

Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Systems – Examples of Good System Design

This article video looks at an example of a well-designed local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system in a school that controls well, is easy to operate and maintain and has low running costs. It looks at the use of an Atex compliant centralised vacuum extraction system used in a schools woodworking classroom and the benefits it can deliver.

Effective Local Exhaust Ventilation Systems

Craft design and technology departments in teaching establishments must comply with the COSHH regulations to protect staff and pupils from the dangers associated with wood dust. Over the last 5 years centralised vacuum extraction systems specifically designed for the education markets have become available. These extract dust from multiple machines simultaneously and incorporate plug in points for portable tools and floor and bench cleaning. The system is Atex compliant... more

What is Antibiotic Resistance & How Can You Help?

When was the last time you had an infection? It probably wasn’t a great worry because you know you can just get some antibiotics- but the problem is antibiotics don’t kill bacteria as well as they used to. The bacteria have become resistant, in fact there are some bacteria which are now totally resistant to all antibiotics.

This is one of the biggest threats to everyone on earth and the problem is only going to get worse unless we act fast and together we are going to enter an era where no antibiotics work.

Using Chlorine Dioxide as a Disinfectant for Water

Chlorine dioxide has the chemical formula ClO2, and at room temperature it exists as a yellowish-green gas. It has an odour similar to that of chlorine and is highly soluble in water, being approximately 10 times more soluble than chlorine.

While chlorine dioxide is an oxide of chlorine it is very different from the composition of chlorine itself. It is also occasionally referred to as chlorine (IV) oxide, as one of a number of oxides of the compound.
Chlorine dioxide was first discovered two centuries ago by Sir Humphrey Davy. The gas smells very similar to chlorine.

It is very effective against many waterborne pathogens including legionella bacteria and is used extensively to treat drinking water systems, clean and sterilise cooling towers and other water systems where effective microbial control is required.

Applications for Chlorine Dioxide

Chlorine dioxide is a highly effective chemical oxidising agent that is used extensively in a variety of applications including paper processing (pulp bleaching), municipal water treatment, industrial wastewater treatment, effluent treatment, water disinfection, legionella control and other specialist applications.

ClO2 is used as a bleaching agent and also as a very effective disinfectant.
