Carbon capture and storage (CCS) applications

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an emerging method of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of power plants. In a process called ‘scrubbing’, the carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed into chemical solvents consisting of amines or carbonates. Scrubbing is a well-established method of carbon capture, with virtually every commercial CO2 capture plant in operation using this process. In the process, the first step is the removal of impurities from the flue gas, such as hydrocarbons and oxides of both nitrogen and sulfur (NOx and SOx). Next the purified gas is passed through an absorption column filled with the chemical scrubbing solvent. The solvent reacts with the carbon dioxide and selectively absorbs it from the gas stream. When CO2-rich solvent is heated, the carbon dioxide is released as a nearly pure gas.

Methane and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Landfill Applications

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Application: In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas.

Vacuum systems in residential areas

by Envac AB     based in Stockholm, SWEDEN

As waste volumes continue to grow, more and more stringent demands are being made of waste handling with regard to hygiene and the environment. The Envac vacuum system for waste handling in residential areas is a long-term investment offering both financial and environmental benefits, as well as other added value.
