  • Managing livestock diets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

    Scientists in South East Asia have been measuring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from goats and cattle in a series of research projects investigating the effects of different feeding regimes. In each case, the eructed, or belched, emissions from each animal were measured with a ...

  • Researchers are Advancing Science Using Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    There are so many examples of interesting research using Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) technology it is difficult to decide on my favorites; however, I have chosen to highlight the following two papers because these applications for the MPL and MiniMPL address problems that are very important to global health. I’ve created a summary of each report and provided the citation in case you are ...

  • Protect the supply network against rising sea levels with the wastop non-return valve Case Study

    Problem: As the Baltic Sea’s quality levels have fallen, stricter requirements have been imposed on what may be discharged into the sea. The Port of Åhus is now the biggest container port in South-East Sweden and one of Southern Sweden’s most prominent bulk ports. Within the area are several different industrial facilities whose emissions are not allowed to go into ...

  • Protect Waterworks From Flooding with Wastop Access Case Study

    Problem: Rising sea levels and extreme weather conditions are becoming increasingly common. Wherever we live on the earth, climate change affects us all. One issue that has therefore become increasingly relevant and important in recent years is to protect people and communities from flooding in waste water and surface water systems – which can have disastrous ...

  • Unlocking carbon history in Antarctic ice – Case Study

    No greater challenge faces our planet right now than determining conclusively how we are impacting the environment and what can be done to arrest and reverse global warming. One important method for measuring the rising level of CO2 in earth’s atmosphere is to look back through time by measuring the amount of CO2 locked in Antarctic ice. To deepen our understanding, Stanford researcher ...

  • Conforming to GHG reporting rules – Case Study

    In 2011, a new EPA rule (40 CFR Part 98) went into effect requiring a wide range of companies that emit Green House Gases (GHG) to submit annual reports to the EPA. These were primarily large facilities emitting 25,000 metric tons of carbon dioxideequivalent (mtCO2e) or more of GHG emissions per year. ...

  • High voltage switchgear SF6 maintenance – Case Study

    Just like the main circuit breaker in your home, city grids have main on/off switches called switchgears. When these high voltage switchgears open or close, huge "lightning-like" arcs of electricity are created. If not maintained correctly, these sparks can causewidespread power outages and pose a safety risk. To avoid these dangerous sparks, power companies have traditionally filled the sealed ...

  • Capturing biogas from landfills – Case Study

    Each day, millions of tons of municipal solid wastes are disposed of in sanitary landfills and dump sites around the world. Over 1,200 landfills worldwide collect landfill gas, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and accrues emissions credits to meet the Environmental Protection ...

  • Inspired innovation

    As the drive towards energy independence in the US continues at full speed, oil and gas companies are turning to hydraulic fracturing to increase production. Increasingly stringent state and national regulations for flare gas in particular now require the installation of mass flow measurement instruments to measure waste and excess gases burned off as a result of the hydraulic fracturing process. ...

  • Bringing precision to steel production - Case Study

    Aluminum and steel manufacturers use mass flow controllers to inject purification, stirring and shielding gases into their melting, casting and annealing processes. Precise, automated gas flow control reduces toxic emissions and material costs.  Final purification of aluminum is accomplished by bubbling a mixture of argon and chlorine gases through the molten metal. This process separates ...

  • Comparison of greenhouse gas analyzers -measurements using photoacoustic, laser, FTIR analyzers and gas chromatography

    In the last decades, several technologies have been developed to measure greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations and fluxes. We compared six devices using different measurement technologies: two gas chromatographic systems with a barrier discharge ionization detector (GC-BID) and an electron capture detector (GC-ECD), respectively, a portable GHG analyzer based on laser absorption, a photoacoustic ...

  • Industrial Heating - Non-contact Temperature Measurement Advances for Aluminium Extrusions

    The amount of aluminum extruded has increased considerably in recent years due to the metal’s wide availability and relatively low cost. Extrusions offer a combination of light weight and excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, along with strength and resistance to corrosion. Aluminum also is commonly alloyed with other metals to ...

  • National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) compliant medical waste incinerators in Kenya - Case Study

    Providing advanced solutions to treating Medical Waste whilst complying with all government environmental regulations. The correct solution for treating Kenyas' medical waste Ensuring all international emissions guidelines are adhered to is essential for safe destruction of Medical waste. We recently completed the commissioning of two of our Medical Incinerators ...

  • Global Warming - a Hot Topic

    World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has consolidated data from a number of renown institutes, and has concluded that 2018 is yet another year with notably higher global average temperature on the surface of the earth than what was observed in the pre-industrial era. ...

  • Destruction of ozone depleting substances - Case study

    Destruction of ODSs ODSs are substances that cause the depletion of the ozone layer. Depletion is typically caused by the photo-dissociation of halocarbons and catalytic destruction of ozone by the resulting atomic halogens. The majority of these halocarbons are man-made and have such serious affects to the ozone requiring control synchronized by the Montreal Protocol. ...

  • Sustainability:What Does It Mean?

    The term sustainability is used more and more but there is a multitude of different definitions and applications for this term in the horticultural industry. Sustainability is defined as the “avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.” ...

  • A Dynamical Perspective on Atmospheric Temperature Variability and its Response to Climate Change

    The atmospheric temperature distribution is typically described by its mean and variance, while higher order moments, such as skewness, have received less attention. Skewness is a measure of the asymmetry between the positive and negative tails of the distribution, which has implications for extremes. It was recently shown that near-surface temperature in the southern hemisphere is positively ...
