In the U.S., compliance with EPA, DOT and OSHA is required across both private and public facilities, and industrial and commercial manufacturing. Our deep understanding of environmental regulatory compliance has enabled us to develop analytical instrumentation and solutions to help your operations, the environment, and your bottom line.
Our portfolio of industrial gas analyzers is designed for combustion efficiency and environmental compliance.

Zero Liquid Discharge technologies aiming to reuse wastewater in a system
Air and Gas Monitoring
Air and gas pollutants pose a major threat to health and climate.
To protect the environment, wastewater-free production is essential in many industries. The principle of Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) is particularly relevant in regions where water is scarce, legal discharge restrictions exist or resources must be protected. With regard to water consumption, companies in certain regions are legally obliged to reduce their environmental impact from the resource water.
The principle of the ZLD technology is a closed water cycle. Water remains in a closed circuit and is treated after the processes, in order to then be reintroduced into the industrial plant’s process in sufficient quality. The principle is simple, but the technology is complex. Depending on the water components, wastewater treatment faces different challenges.
The advantages for companies are manifold. Through ZLD, valuable resources can be recovered from wastewater, which can be sold or reused in the industrial process. Other advantages of a ZLD application are: a lower volume of waste water, which reduces the cost of waste disposal, and the recycling of water reduces the need for further water extraction.
Process Insights provides with its brands innovative water analyzers for the determination of the most important water quality parameters, such as TOC, COD, BOD, TOD, TN and toxicity.
Air pollution is a mixture of particles and gases that can reach harmful concentrations, both outdoors and indoors, that are harmful to human health and the planet as a whole. Their effects can range from higher risks of disease to rising temperatures.
Industry continues to be one of the largest sources of pollutants released into the world’s environment. Common examples of air pollution are: smog and soot, hazardous air pollutants and greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide.
Short-term effects of air pollution on human health include sneezing and coughing, eye irritation, headaches and dizziness. Other pollutants do not have a direct effect on health in the case of long-term exposure, but they do contribute to climate change. Examples include heat waves, extreme weather conditions, disruption of food supplies and other effects associated with increased greenhouse gases.
Industry is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, such as methane and carbon dioxide. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas with a global warming potential more than 25 times greater than carbon dioxide. A key industry for pollution is the oil and gas industry, which includes a wide range of operations and equipment, from wells, gas collection and processing facilities to storage tanks and transmission and distribution pipelines. It is a major industrial source of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, which contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone (smog).
VOC emissions from the oil and gas industry not only contribute to the formation of ozone, but also contain air toxins such as benzene, ethylbenzene and n-hexane, which also originate from this industry. Air pollutants are pollutants that are known or suspected to cause cancer and other serious health effects. A strong, growing, low-carbon industry based on sustainable material flows and recycling is part of many political strategies. The aim is to create a growing industrial sector that makes less and less use of natural resources, reduces pollutant emissions and produces less and less waste over time.
Process Insights offers with its brands a broad portfolio of products and solutions for monitoring air and gas pollution in various industries.
