Recent decades brought a rapid growth in the global demand for energy. This trend is accurate for both developed as well as developing countries. Electrical power is a key source of energy for the vast majority of the world population. Although the usage of renewable energy is on the rise, the majority of electric power production worldwide is still based on conventional methods utilizing coal, oil and gas as its fuel to power the stations.
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...
The demand for Data Centers is growing at an accelerated pace and keeping these facilities constantly operational is essential. Alongside this absolute focus on reliability, the industry is also now seeking solutions that reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions associated with data center operations.
based in Amesbury, MASSACHUSETTS (USA).
The Series 8900 Hydrogen Sulfide and Carbon Disulfide Analyzer provides direct measurement of H2S and CS2 in ambient air. This instrument is utilized for continuous emission monitoring. The Series 8900 H2S and CS2 Analyzer employs a Photoionization detector (PID) as the sensing element. A dual column configuration with timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and heavier hydrocarbons. A pre-cut column is used in series with the analytical column. At sample injection a fixed volume of sample is...
With its expertise in calculating and managing emissions data, CERC offers a range of services to assess greenhouse gas emissions, from determining the carbon footprint of a single industrial process, to compiling a greenhouse gas inventory for a whole geographical area.
CERC uses methods and emission factors laid out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Emissions from transport, industrial, heating and agricultural activities are calculated and stored using the EMIT software package.
The accurate measurement of a gas mixture is essential to metal and mineral processing. Reliable measurements are needed to manage processes ranging from effective combustion control to optimized process control.
For the removal of mercury emissions from flue gas streams, Calgon Carbon`s specialty PAC products are proven industry performers. These industries include: Coal-fired electric power plants, Cement, Boilers.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal poisoning in many industrialized countries. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless and tasteless gas caused by the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas to the human body, when inhaled it binds to hemoglobin, myoglobin, and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase reducing oxygen storage, transport and respiration in these organelles.
The construction of coal and natural gas power stations is continuing at a steady rate along with older power stations being retrofitted with more effective flue gas cleaning systems. Both the community and environmental protection authorities are paying closer attention to both emission and ambient concentrations around power stations.
Petrochemical plants, and especially their process water recovery plants, are a major source of air pollution. If odours are a recurring problem, the emission of greenhouse gases may also be particularly important.
Citto Activated Carbon 'Air Series' offers a range of standard, impregnated, and specialized activated carbon products for a wide spectrum of air purification applications. The dynamic product array of the Citto Activated Carbon 'Air Series' is developed to meet stringent emission control regulations as well as safety standards for emerging respiratory technologies effectively removing nuisance odors, volatile organics, and hazardous chemicals from air and gas streams.
RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is made from domestic waste which includes biodegradable material as well as plastics, and has a lower calorific value than SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel).
RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is used in combined heat and power facilities, many of them in Europe where they produce electricity and hot water for communal heating systems in the local area.
Compared to landfilling, the lower carbon emissions resulting from RDF manufacture outweigh the emissions associated with transporting the reclaimed...
One of the main sources of air pollution is traffic. To estimate the traffic contribution to air pollution the emissions are calculated from the vehicle fleet composition and vehicle emission factors (EF). Since the emission factors depend on vehicle type (cars, heavy and light duty), engine maintenance, driving environment (city, highway, regional roads) and weather, the emmision factors must be measured for in-use vehicles in actual traffic situations.
Metal casting and heat treatment processes are associated with harmful gaseous emissions into the atmosphere which include substances such as carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, oil vapors and sulfur dioxide.
Catalytic converters in cars are used for reduction of hazardous emissions, such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HxCy) and nitrogen oxides (NOx). These harmful substances are converted into neutral carbon dioxide (CO2), water and nitrogen by catalytic chemical reactions, which are accelerated by three platinum group metals (PGM): platinum, palladium, and rhodium.
Today, the reduction of atmospheric emissions produced by the gas processing and petrochemical industries is an acute problem. The most widely used technique of exhaust gas treatment comprises complete burning, even though this method does not provide an adequate degree of treatment. Therefore, in this case PLAZKAT systems are a more effective solution for removing aromatic hydrocarbon from the emissions.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted in a number of ways. It is emitted naturally and through human activities like the burning of fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is generated as a by-product of the combustion of fossil fuels or the burning of vegetable matter, among other chemical processes. Small amounts of carbon dioxide are emitted from volcanoes and other geothermal processes.
By converting dead trees into wood chips and gasifying them, our machine produces clean electricity and offsets disposal costs.
Disposal by gasification also has far lower particulate emissions than controlled burns and a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition are avoided. Decomposing wood reverts all of its carbon content to CO2, but gasification sequesters a portion of it as charcoal waste, usable as biochar.
Energy recovery from municipal waste is the conversion of non-recyclable waste materials into usable energy like heat, electricity, or fuel through a variety of processes, including combustion, gasification, pyrolization, anaerobic digestion and landfill gas recovery. This process is often called waste to energy by the industry.
