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...
EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016
1 Guidebook Introduction1.1 Introduction The joint EMEP (1)/EEA Air Pollutant Emission Inventory Guidebook (the `Guidebook`), following the `Guidelines for Reporting Emissions and Projections Data` under the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP) (2), provides concise guidance on how to compile an atmospheric emissions inventory. The Guidebook has been prepared by the Convention`s Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections...
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...
Data analytics and the materials cycle
Data has the potential to revolutionise the materials industry, from extraction to processing to commercialisation. But it can only do so with the right mix of technology, skills and strategy. Dr Matt Jones explains. Using data is nothing new, but the rapid increase in data sources and quantity of data collected means getting the most out of it is ever more important. Properly used, data can provide answers to questions such as – how deep is the metal reserve, under what conditions does fermentation yield...
