  • The landfill gas collection, utilisation and surplus gas combustion acting in unison

    In landfill gas utilisation the basic task of the control system is to harmonise three completely independent processes. On the one hand, there is the gas production of the landfill which is inconstant. (From a price point of view, hardly worthwhile to store the gas in a gasometer) On the other side the independent gas utilisation process, which orientates itself to the requirement of the ...

  • The Major Components of Heat Exchangers

    Heat exchangers are not only one of the most common pieces of equipment found on industrial sites, they are also one of the most important. Despite the name, heat exchangers are used for both heating and cooling and are actually used more often for cooling, especially on industrial sites such as refineries or processing plants. These pieces of equipment are not “one size fits all.” In ...

  • Air quality assessment in the EU: room for improvement?

    Different modelling approaches are used to design and assess air quality plans across Europe. This study assessed the strengths and weaknesses of these different approaches. The researchers conclude that a large variety of models is in use, without a preferred or standard model having emerged yet. They identify integrating local-scale and large-scale models and verifying models with measurements ...

  • Case study - CRI advances customer service and reduces cost with VOC/HAPS reporting tool

  • Controlling Pharmaceutical Coating & Drying Process Emissions

    Capturing and destroying harmful emissions from pharmaceutical processes can be challenging. It’s not because the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are difficult to destroy using catalytic or thermal techniques. It’s because their concentrations can be so high. These process streams raise safety concerns, both when they’re collected in vents and when they reach the final ...

  • WESPS continue to deliver

    Compliance with the increasingly stringent air pollution regulations of recent years is not the only reason forwardthinking industry leaders are adopting more sophisticated gas cleaning and air pollution control strategies. The desire to achieve higher performance efficiencies, control costs in a competitive marketplace, and stay ahead of the regulatory compliance curve is another driver of ...
