  • Additives for fuel economy: a modern view

    Fuel additives. A private car doesn’t just give you the pleasure of a quick and comfortable ride, but it also requires everyday expenses for maintenance, and the biggest expense is the cost of fuel. The question of saving on fuel is very relevant. The Internet offers many tips. One of the ways to save fuel is to use special additives. But experience shows that these additives have both ...

  • While Oil Prices are Down, Get Up on Compliance

    It’s no secret that the oil and gas industry has taken a hit lately, with per-barrel prices dipping to as low as $27. The saturated market and low prices have many companies putting a hold on drilling. While no one in our industry likes dipping oil prices, there are two things you can do to weather the storm until those prices take a (much welcomed) upward turn: Stay up to date on ...


  • Performance and emission characteristics of CI engine, fuelled with diesel and oxygenated fuel blends

    Vegetable oils are a potential alternative towards partial or total substitution of diesel fuels. In this study, we used ethanol as the solvent, and a bio fuel enhancer as additive to explore the possible use of higher percentages of biodiesel in an unmodified diesel engine. Biodiesel was produced from cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL) by pyrolysis process. A mixture containing 80% (by volume) of ...

  • Where Did These New Quality Assurance Requirements for Opacity Monitors Come From?

    U.S. EPA promulgated the long awaited ‘‘Quality Assurance Requirements for Continuous Opacity Monitoring Systems at Stationary Sources’’ used to demonstrate continuous compliance with opacity standards specified in new source performance standards (NSPS).  This has an effective date of November ...

  • Triiodophenyl acrylate–based microbeads find important use in the medical field

    Preparation of polymeric micro– and nanoparticles has significantly become an effective approach for achieving efficient drug targeting to tumour tissues. A promising solution could be the use of a radio–opaque polymeric system carrying iodine groups. In this context, radio–opaque polymeric microparticles based on methyl methacrylate (MMA) and an 2,4,6–triiodophenyl acrylate (TIPA) were ...

  • Multi-pollutant control creates fuel options for whiskey distillery

    The distillation of fine whiskey requires the application of appropriate amounts of heat in the form of steam. The generation of that steam can come from multiple sources of energy. The Wild Turkey Distillery located in Lawrenceburg, KY has utilized an EISENMANN Wet Electrostatic Precipitator Dual Field (WESP- 2F) to provide multi-pollutant air pollution control on the plants new biomass fired ...

  • Environmental impact of using biodiesel as fuel in transportation: a review

    The environmental pollution and global warming associated with the use of fossil fuels, has forced a search for alternative fuels in transportation. This paper presents a review of the use of biodiesel in CI engines and its environmental impacts. There is a significant reduction in the emission of unburned hydrocarbons, polyaromatic hydrocarbons and soot, particulate matters, carbon monoxide, ...

  • Marine Industry experience with Aalborg Industries

    Port Authorities and Governing Bodies state that a ship cannot emit smoke of >20% opacity for more than 3 minutes when in port. The IMO set similar limits for on-board incinerators. The DSL-220 Opacity Monitor has been used successfully to measure smoke emissions from diesel engines, incinerators and boilers on board ship ensuring that environmental concerns are ...

  • Israel and the bomb

    In spite of its policy of ambiguity, Israel's nuclear military capability is universally admitted. This raises the question of the underlying doctrine and the function played by the bomb in the political-military relations between Israel and its neighbours since the end of the 1950s. This paper shows that instead of contributing to deterrence, the bomb has been irrelevant (at best) or ...

  • Assessment of bagging operators exposure to with pvc airborne particulates

    The hazard potential of airborne particles is dependent on the mass concentration as well as the particle size. Particle size determines the deposition site within the respiratory tract and the subsequent health effects. Particle-size is considered from two viewpoints: The sizefraction most closely associated with the specific health effect, and the mass concentration within that size fraction. ...

  • Chemical Plant Desulfurization

    KRONOS’ facility in Leverkusen, Germany produces titanium dioxide, the most important material used by the paints and plastics industry for whiteness and opacity. When new German guidelines set maximum emission limits for SO2 in 1989, KRONOS was required to eliminate the COS from the off-gas at their titanium dioxide production facility to meet the new requirements.Complicating this application, ...
