The world’s most polluted river, The Citarum river in Indonesia

image

The Citarum River in Indonesia is the world’s most polluted river. One of the main polluters is the fashion industry: 500 textile factories throw their wastewater directly into the river. The filmmakers teamed up with international scientists to investigate the causes and consequences of this pollution. With the help of concerned citizens, the ‘Green Warriors’ team analyzed water samples, rice, children’s hair, etc. and discovered that toxic chemicals are endangering the lives of the 14 million Indonesians who use the Citarum water. What was once considered paradise is now a brown sludge of human waste and dangerous substances like nonylphenol, antimony and tributylphosphate. These findings prompted the Indonesian government to change its wastewater regulations. Recently, President Joko Widodo announced a new plan to clean up the Citarum. The fashion brands questioned in this documentary promised to better monitor their Indonesian suppliers.

One the kit used is

image

A range of specialised semi-quantitative test strips for the determination of ions in water.

For The Semi-Quantitative Determination Of Ions

RapidMost of the QUANTOFIXtest strips can be carried out in 10-120 seconds. That makes the application very quick for the end user.

ConvenientAll QUANTOFIXtests are ready to use kits. They are precalibrated and contain all necessary equipment and reagents.

PreciseThe colour charts are adjusted and checked using certified standard solutions that are directly traceable to primary NIST standards. The user can be sure to receive accurate readings whenever he tests.

A QUANTOFIX test stick consists of a plastic strip of 0.2mm thickness to which, at the lower end, a test paper has been sealed. The size of the test paper area permits a clear comparison with the fields of equal size of the colour scale provided on the plastic box. The length of the test sticks is sufficient to permit easy handling even in cases where aggressive or otherwise noxious solutions are to be tested.The plug of the vial contains a desiccant for increased shelf life of the sticks.
