Shipping sector braces for emissions storm
Is the fuel oil market ready for tighter carbon and sulphur emissions rules on shipping? Tighter emissions regulations are set to cause a revolution in the shipping fuel market over the next few years, with plans now in place for carbon emissions cuts and tougher regulations on sulphur emissions increasingly likely to come into force in 2020. A compromise agreement reached by member states of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in London on 13 April has paved the way for carbon emissions cuts of at...
Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations
The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by the anaerobic digestion of waste or biomass through microorganisms. Source material can be municipal garbage, agricultural...

Performance of the low-emission flare
Job report / Elbisgraben (Bale / Switzerland)The summer of 1992 had finally arrived. The 5MW low emission furnace in the district heating station Liestal was ignited, supplied with landfill gas from Elbisgraben landfill.Since then the plant has been running continuously and the comprehensive measurements taken, verify that all targets aimed at have been achieved: plant efficiency 90%, low NOX, almost pollution free flue gas, no dioxin and furane.Something to the previous historySince 1983, the Elbisgraben...
Reducing Oil & Gas Methane Emissions: EPA Regulations & Data Collection
U.S. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently committed to very specific targets in the oil and gas sector. Their ambitious goal is to reduce methane emissions by 40-45 percent below 2012 levels by 2025. This target was reaffirmed on June 30 when Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto joined the commitment. The U.S. has already begun acting on these commitments and this month the EPA issued a voluntary request for information on emerging technologies that would help...
