    Measurement solution for Biomass combustion research

    The use of alternative combustion fuels that provide a renewable source of energy is a major area of research and investment. Sources of biomass fuels include virgin wood, energy crops, agricultural residues, food waste and industrial waste. Controlling the combustion process of any new fuel and keeping track of the biomass fuel emissions of combustion by-products is important to users of these new fuels.

    Air pollution control for the ethanol/biodesel industry

    Renewable energy plants are expanding and developing at a significant rate in North America and throughout the world. In the United States, the Clean Air Act for reformulated gasoline (RFG) mandates a 2wt.% oxygen requirement, driving the demand for more production. Ethanol is the most viable additive because it is a clean-burning fuel produced from renewable, domestic biomass sources. However, the production of these fuels can result in unacceptable levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), all regulated by environmental agencies.

    Piping & ducting solutions for the chemical/petrochemical industry

    Petrochemical products are derived from petroleum products. Many other chemical compounds are derived from other fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, or other renewable sources such as corn or sugar cane. With over 30 years of experience in supplying the chemical and petrochemical industries with high quality expansion joints and check valves, PROCO understands the unique needs and demands that companies in these businesses face.

  • Wind farm noise monitoring

    Wind energy is a renewable energy source that is being harnessed globally to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and the associated impact on our environment. However, the environmental impact of the turbine noise and the blade pass noise is a concern that is carefully monitored and generally regulated. It is very important to be able to acquire accurate acoustical data for analysis, noise impact predictions, and regulatory compliance. Effective noise monitoring is a very valuable tool to manage a wind farm’s relationship with the community and with the local regulatory organizations.

  • Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector

    Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy source because the process produces a methane and carbon dioxide rich biogas suitable for energy production, helping to replace fossil fuels. The nutrient-rich digestate which is also produced can be used as fertilizer. The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials in order to break down insoluble organic polymers such as carbohydrates and make them available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. Acetogenic bacteria then convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide.
