Gas Emissions to the Atmosphere; Production of aluminum from its ores at aluminum smelters results in carbon dioxide CO2, carbon monoxide CO, sulfur dioxide SO2, and hydrogen fluoride HF gas emissions to the atmosphere.
Providing heat and cooling to homes and businesses makes up a quarter of the UKs greenhouse emissions and 51% of all energy used in Europe. Providing heat and cooling to homes and businesses makes up a quarter of the UKs greenhouse emissions and 51% of all energy used in Europe. This huge energy demand is usually met by using natural gas, instead of utilising low carbon solutions, such as hydrogen. Hydrogen can be blended with natural gas to decarbonise the gas we use for heating and cooling. By doing this, the...
In the semiconductor manufacturing industry, various perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are used. The emissions of the PFC compounds into the ambient air are reduced by scrubbing of the exhaust gases from the process. In this process, the Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzers can be used to measure the emissions into the atmosphere and also monitor the efficiency of the scrubbers. Typically monitored PFCs in the exhaust gas include carbon tetrafluoride CF4, trifluoromethane CHF3, and hexafluoroethane C2F6.
Efficient recovery of active pharmaceutical ingredients(APIs), chemical substances or food powdersafter drying applications such as spray and fluid bed dryingis frequently a problem. The same problem occurs in many milling and micronization applications. The preferred way to recover these sensitive products is with cyclone collectors due to their direct powder capture. Unlike bag filters or wet scrubbers, cyclones minimize filter or product contamination and product cross contamination and can easily handle a...
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.
Titanium dioxide is the most important white pigment used in the polymer industry. It is widely used, because it efficiently scatters visible light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness, and opacity when incorporated into a plastic product.
Forrec produces plants for treating hospital and medical waste, featuring maximum production capacity and a high level of automation. The treatment of hospital waste is governed by strict regulations, which foresee the sterilization and disposal of potentially infectious hazardous medical waste. With FORREC plants, potentially infectious and hazardous hospital waste is pre-treated by grinding and conveying through sealed stainless steel screw conveyors, followed by grinding and final refining of the sterilized...

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.
The aluminium industry is the major source of perflurocarbon (PFC) emissions to the atmosphere, which are a major contributor to global warming. PFCs have greenhouse gas effects up to 10000 times that of CO2. Emissions have been reduced over the last 20 years, but further reductions are harder to achieve as all the mechanisms for PFC production are not known. In order to better understand the production of PFC on an industrial level, laboratory studies have been carried out using a small scale cell.
Stack emissions testing (stack sampling or stack monitoring) is the experimental process for evaluating the characteristics of waste gas stream emissions into the atmosphere from industrial facilities to meet environmental standards. Stack testing measures the amount of specific regulated pollutants or surrogates being emitted or determines the destruction or removal efficiency of a control device used to reduce emissions at facilities. Stack monitoring is an important tool used to determine a facility’s...
The ultra-fast analysis capabilities of IONICON PTR-TOF instruments are essential for eddy covariance flux measurements, allowing to study deposition and emission rates of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs).
Commonly, activated carbon beds are used as abatement systems on plant, with emissions being reduced by adsorption onto the bed. The efficiency of any abatement system is critical to its operation, not just in ensuring emissions are reduced as much as possible, but an efficient bed has cost savings for the operator.
The act of capturing and storing CO2 produced from large scale combustion plants such as power stations is becoming more and more favourable and feasible. One of the most common post-combustion CO2 capture methods is by absorption. The absorption plant can be added on to the existing combustion process, with the flue gas first passing through an absorption column where the CO2 reacts with an absorber. Amines of different types are used as the absorber. An amine CO2 capture plant can capture as much as 90% of the...

Protea can offer online siloxanes analysis using our atmosFIR gas analysers. This allows the real time measurement of siloxanes on plant. We can offer portable siloxanes analysers or fixed siloxane measurement systems.
Hydrogen sulfide is the chemical compound with the formula H2S. H2S is colorless, toxic and flammable and is responsible for the foul odour of rotten eggs and flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide often results from sulfur reducing bacteria in nonorganic matter (in the absence of oxygen), such as in swamps and sewers (anaerobic digestion). H2S also occurs in volcanic gases, natural gas and some well waters.
Electric and electronic waste (WEEE), are coming from technology products such as home appliances (washing machines, vacuum cleaners), computers and tools. An economy based on the consumption such as today, provides a continuous increase of WEEE, and determines an increasing risk of dropping out in the environment or in landfills, with the consequences of pollution of soil, air, water and health human repercussions. These products should be handled properly and used for the differential recovery of the materials...
The installation of suitable installation material in buildings is a cost effective way to reduce energy costs. The manufacture of insulation from minerals or mineral products, such as glass. Recycling glass to form insulation materials is another way to keep the process "green".
