Grain handling and/or processing operations have the potential to release particulate that can be effectively removed with venturi scrubbers. Fermentation of corn to generate ethanol also releases fugitive emissions that can be scrubbed with counter current packed towers.
The recovery of fertilizers typically after drying tunnels or drum dryers is associated with a high load of particulates and very humid gas streams. The recovery of these products is commonly performed by dryer cyclones as they allow for a direct powder capture and avoid filter clogging due to condensation. Arrangements with cyclones and/or with bag filters are usual in the industry.
Agriculture is by far the largest water use at global level. Irrigation of agricultural lands accounted for 70% of the water used worldwide. In several developing countries, irrigation represents up to 95% of all water uses, and plays a major role in food production and food security. Future agricultural development strategies of most of these countries depend on the possibility to maintain, improve and expand irrigated agriculture.
What is the challenge? Worldwide population growth* has driven intensified livestock farming (especially bovine and swinefarming) leading to effluent disposal issues and an increasing potential for local water pollution problems. And transportation of digestate/manure to nutrient poor regions is expensive.
Make more out of your mill. OPSIS tested and approved monitoring systems provide cost-effective and reliable on-line monitoring of several gas compounds, such as both high and low concentrations of methane, moisture, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide, at several locations.
Assessment of odour impacts from agricultural facilities is increasingly required for planning and IPPC/EPR permitting.
CERC carries out odour impact assessments to investigate odour nuisance complaints, to predict the likely impact of new and existing facilities, and to evaluate the impact and cost effectiveness of various odour control strategies.
In order to carry out a robust assessment of odour impact, whether to evaluate a proposed facility or get to grips with an odour nuisance problem, it is important to...
Working with the industry’s leading manufacturers enables ENVEA to understand specific environmental and process monitoring requirements and the ability to provide an extensive range of ambient, emission and process monitoring systems. A choice of measurement technologies monitor and control key areas of the process including storage, handling, drying activities and dust releases to atmosphere to meet and exceed regulatory environmental obligations and help improve process efficiency.
Since the early 1990s wineries have been experimenting with ozone as an alternative to sanitizers like chlorines and sulfur dioxide. This has provided added benefit of reducing water usage, power consumption, and chemical treatment.

Proper cooling and humidity control are paramount when it comes to producing healthy plants. GoFog™ Agricultural Humidification Systems atomize treated water into tiny fog droplets that provide accurate temperature and humidity control without over-wetting. It takes more than regular watering to keep crops in peak condition. To thrive, they need moisture constantly throughout the day, but only the right amount. In nature, plants draw the water they need from the soil, but this doesn’t mean they always...

High Efficiency odor, VOC and particle filtration without the high costs of energy and maintenance. Dynamic Air Cleaners have been used successfully around the world to remove VOCs, mold spores, and ultrafine particles from indoor air and outdoor ventilation air, and for mitigating odors from exhaust air.
Bentonite can be mixed with pesticides and fungicides as a support carrier to fix the product to the leaves. In organic farming, the action of fungi and parasites is inhibited by bentonite – a natural product – thus replacing chemical products. In particular, this process is employed in biodynamic cultivation of wine grapes, where bentonite is mixed with other elements to fight oidium. In liquid and solid fertilizers, it is used as a fixing carrier and to control the release of nitrogen, potassium,...
Fruit leathers are restructured fruit made from fresh fruit pulp or a mixture of fruit juice concentrates and other ingredients after a complex operation that involves a dehydration step. Dehydration of fruit leather is a process which involves simultaneous heat and mass transfer. Various methods of drying and drying conditions affecting quality of fruit leathers have been previously studied. Traditional sun drying allows the production of fruit leather with a live color and translucent appearance. However, the...
