  • Micro Pulse LiDAR Monitors Air Quality at Mining Sites in Real Time - Case Study

    Early Detection of Adverse Particulate Matter Aids Dust Management Dust emissions at open-cut coal mines are a potential threat to air quality in surrounding areas. To learn more about particulate matter (PM) and how it travels beyond a mine’s boundaries, a research grant from the Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP) was awarded to Pacific Environment, an environmental ...

  • Planetary Boundary Layer: Why is it Important?

    The famous statistician George Box said “All models are wrong, but some are useful”—for calculating air quality indices and emissions estimates this is certainly true. One way to increase the utility of models is to use up-to-the-minute, local Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) measurements as an input when generating top-down emissions estimates. ...

  • Waste Heat as a benefit of VOC Destruction with a Thermal Oxidiser - Case Study

    Application Although many look at the energy used to destruct VOCs as an unnecessary waste, Dickinson Legg (now Garbuio Dickinson), the world leader in the design and manufacture of Primary Tobacco Processing Plants saw it as an opportune way to supplement the heat required in their client’s tobacco refining process – in very different ways. Garbuio Dickinson chose ...

  • Micropollutant removal from black water and grey water sludge in a UASB-GAC reactor

    The effect of granular activated carbon (GAC) addition on the removal of diclofenac, ibuprofen, metoprolol, galaxolide and triclosan in a up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor was studied. Prior to the reactor studies, batch experiments indicated that addition of activated carbon to UASB sludge can decrease micropollutant concentrations in both liquid phase and sludge. In continuous ...

  • End-of-life Tires as an Alternative Fuel (TDF) in Cement Kilns: Now Easier than Ever!

    End-of-life tires are a challenging type of waste since they are difficult to shred and are expensive to treat and get rid of. However, tire derived fuel TDF is an extremely good alternative to the traditional fuels used in cement kilns, like oil, coal, and petroleum coke. The following blog presents a solution and explains how TDF can be used for heating cement kilns. ...

  • Effect of turbulence intensity on PM emission of heavy duty diesel trucks – Wind tunnel studies

    Abstract Stringent emission regulations have forced drastic technological improvements in diesel aftertreatment systems, particularly in reducing Particulate Matter (PM) emissions. The formation and evolution of PM from modern engines are more sensitive to overall changes in the dilution process, such as rapidity of mixing, background PM present in the air. These technological ...
