  • Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

    All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for oil and gas industry

    There are a wide amount of applications for our VacuDry® process within the oil and gas industry. A large variety of wastes and by-products that are generated in the oil & gas production chain can be treated effectively and sustainably. In past decades, numerous thermal desorption processes have been implemented worldwide, using a variety of heating chamber designs to separate hydrocarbons from the mineral solids. Such standard TDUs work under atmospheric pressure which can lead to safety risks, high energy consumption, larger emissions and limited flexibility regarding altering feed materials. Due to its unique design, the complications outlined above are avoided throughout the VacuDry® process. When it comes to treating standard oily wastes, mercury-containing waste streams, NORM, and especially for the recovery of highly valuable drilling fluids from drill cuttings; our vacuum thermal desorption process (i.e. vacuum distillation) is economically unbeatable.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for process NOx measurement

    Nitric acid HNO3 is an important intermediate reagent for production of several important end products, such as fertilizers, explosives, dyestuffs/pigments, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, photographic materials, plastics, and synthetic fibers. At nitric acid manufacturing plants, the Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzer can be used to measure several gaseous components from the process stream for purposes of process control. A single system can be used to measure the high levels of nitrogen monoxide NO and nitrogen dioxide NO2, as well as water vapor H2O, nitrous oxide N2O, carbon monoxide CO, carbon dioxide CO2 and ammonia NH3. The fixed installation products for these purposes are the Gasmet™ CEM II measurement system, and the Gasmet™ FCX Gas Analyzers, both of which utilize the FTIR measurement technique for simultaneous multicomponent analysis of the sample gas.

    Emission control & air dedusting for steel and ferrous alloys

    teel and ferrous alloys production happens in industrial manufacturing processes which involve high temperature exhaust streams, often at more than 900 ºC. Typically, the gas flows into a gas conditioning tower to cool down to approximately 200 ºC, before entering into an ESP. These flue gases from steel or ferrous alloys kilns are also very maintenance demanding for bag filters and the very small size of the particles limit the use of usual dedusters such as regular cyclones and multicyclones as pre-separators. Bag filter failure is consequently a very common problem for clients in this industry. Client`s needs include a very robust dedusting system, either serving as end-stage collector avoiding the need to cool down flue gases, or strongly minimizing the loads of aggressive material to bag filters.

  • Slope Erosion Control

    Problem: Soil particles are susceptible to being detached and carried away with concentrated runoff streams, forming rills and gullies that grow with time. The slope integrity is diminished, eroding the slope face and becoming a larger environmental and safety issue. Slopes steeper than the natural angle of repose for the slope materials require additional protection measures, as are slopes subject to more severe hydraulic stresses.

  • Landfill Piping Solutions

    Landfills are active environments. Through natural processes of rainfall, condensation, and decomposition, landfills themselves produce a liquid waste stream, called leachate. Often the leachate contains hazardous materials, so properly managing a landfill requires handling the waste. ISCO offers products and services to help manage leachate including HDPE landfill pipe, perforated and slotted pipe as well as custom fabricated fittings.

  • SRF

    SRF Manufacture is an alternative fuel produced by shredding and dehydrating solid waste, typically consisting of combustible components of solid waste, including paper, card, wood, textiles and plastic. It can be produced to a range of specifications to meet customer requirements. Solid Recovered Fuel Manufacture The materials used to produce Solid Recovered Fuel pass through a series of shredders, screens, air classifiers/density separators and magnets. Inert materials, recyclable plastics and metals are extracted from the shredded material, leaving a mix of mainly non-recyclable paper, card, wood, textiles and plastic. Although a small proportion of these materials can be recycled the quality of these materials is compromised once they enter the residual waste stream and recovering energy from these materials is currently the best environmental option.

  • Total Reduced Sulfur (S) monitoring

    Total reduced sulfur(s), which include hydrogen sulfide (H2S), methyl mercaptan (methanethiol, CH3SH), dimethyl sulfide (CH3SCH3), and dimethyl disulfide (CH3S2CH3), occur naturally in the environment and can also be present in numerous industrial gaseous streams – petroleum refining, natural gas extraction, and chemical operations like the pulp/paper industry. Hydrogen sulfide is the most prevalent of the total reduced sulfurs, and is commonly found in volcanic gases, marshes and swamps, wetlands and mud flats, sulfur springs and decaying organic matter. Additionally, hydrogen sulfide is produced by living organisms, including human beings, through the digestion and metabolization of sulfur-containing materials. It must be noted that sulfur dioxide (SO2), sulfur trioxide (SO3) and sulfuric acid mist are not included in the determination of TRS, as these are oxidized sulfur compounds and are permitted and monitored separately from TRS.

  • Wastewater Treatment for the Bioenergy Industry

    The waste (water) streams from the production of (bio) ethanol or ethanol spirits are generally very suitable for anaerobic treatment, due to their organic compounds. 

    The effluent streams produced by the different production processes are influences by a great number of parameters such as, process design, milling process, type of raw material, etc. This requires special attention in the design of the treatment plant for this type of industry. 

    Typical streams from these industries that can be treated are, whole stillage, thin stillage, spent wash, vinasse and condensate from evaporator. The Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) process and the External Circulation Sludge Bed (ECSB) process from HydroThane are worldwide proven processes for the treatment of this type of waste water.

  • Energy and Fuels from Wood Wastes and Biomass

    Wood wastes include woods from forestry, railways – sleepers, telecoms – telephone poles, timber manufacturing processes and the construction industry. Many of these types of wood tend to be contaminated with chemicals and other materials. This contamination can make the waste wood difficult to use in traditional biomass to energy processes and potentially hazardous to the environment. Our Gasplasma® energy from waste technology is able to transform efficiently the organic biomass into a pure, hydrogen-rich synthesis gas and safely destroys any harmful or hazardous inorganic chemicals. All inorganic materials are made inert and vitrified into an environmentally benign product called Plasmarok® which can be sold as an aggregate for construction, generating a revenue stream.
