air pollution health impact Applications

  • Opacity monitoring for continuous emissions

    The history of air pollution regulation dates back as far as the 13th century when in 1273, Edward I (Longshanks) of England prohibited the burning of sea coal in London. The smoke produced by its combustion was considered detrimental to human health. By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, regulations were being passed that sought to control air pollution predominantly for smoke and odour control. Traditionally, regulators were concerned with the visual impact of the discharge from a stack or chimney. Therefore, emission limits were expressed in terms of colour or opacity. Modern methods for opacity measurement still use the darkness of the stack gases to measure the amount of smoke or dust emitted within the exhaust gases.

    Waste recovery for energy & utilities

    In order to stay competitive and to be seen as being environmentally responsible, energy and utility companies are always looking for alternative routes to generate power. One method of doing this is by leveraging waste to energy incineration plants linked to the processing municipal solid waste. During this incineration process, APC residues, which are a mixture of fly ash, organic pollutants (including dioxins and furans), are generated and are classified as hazardous waste and have a detrimental environmental impact. This fly ash is subject to Air Pollution Control as it is contaminated with extremely high concentrations of heavy metals and toxic compounds like dioxins, linked to cancer and other health problems. Tetronics offers valuable waste recovery plants that can eliminate the hazardous element within the fly ash while generating an inert building aggregate with the remaining material.
