  • Removing mercury with activated carbon

    Granular Activated carbon is effective at physically adsorbing trace components from gas streams due to its high population of micropores; however, the capacity is low. By impregnating the granular activated carbon with a compound that will chemically react with the mercury, capacity can be enhanced. It is imperative that not only must the mercury be removed to non-detectable levels but that it ...

  • Fundamentals of Catalytic Activated Carbons

    Untitled Document Summary: Catalysts in water treatment speed chemical reactions so equipment can be scaled down or contact times shortened. Because the speed of a reaction ...

  • The Many Uses of Activated Carbon

    Activated carbon is processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption. It has applications in the medical, environmental and energy realms, among others. Since 1962, ASTM Committee D28 on Activated Carbon has developed standards that play a pre-eminent role in how activated carbon is used. A D28 ...

  • What is Activated Carbon?

    Adsorption with activated carbon can apply. The more awareness people have of the Earth, the more applications activated carbons will have. is thus a commonly seen process in applications such as gas masks, space capsules, nuclear plants and so forth, in which the removal of gases is highly needed. ...

  • The Phase 1 Environmental Assessment

    In today’s world where every property is subject to potential environmental risks a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment or ESA is an appropriate action to take. An ESA can help determine if the property has been contaminated by previous or current activities. The ESA can help protect the purchaser of a property from environmental risks prior to the closing on a property.  Lenders ...

  • The Rationale for Accelerating Regionally Focused Climate Intervention Research

    Abstract Ten years ago, Paul Crutzen asked whether the time had come to consider undertaking research into intentionally intervening in the climate system so that it might be considered a policy option comparable to reducing emissions for limiting human-induced climate change. Crutzen’s article pointed out how little progress had been made in reducing emissions and suggested that ...

  • Technical and safety practices

    Safety is absolutely paramount in the medical industry, with lives literally at stake if something were o go wrong. Regrettably, this was more than reinforced recently following the tragic news of a death of a newborn at a hospital in Sydney, Australia, after it was mistakenly administered nitrous oxide (N2O) instead of oxygen (O2) in July this ...

  • Odour Control at Pesticide Facilities: Eliminating volatile compounds

    Chemical formulation plants are susceptible to emissions of unpleasant and malodorous volatile compounds, a fact which makes the implementation of efficient odour control measures essential. North-western Spain is home to one of the country's oldest industrial sites for the manufacture of phytosanitary products, with some facilities located relatively close to populated areas. Recently, the ...

  • Following the fuel: How portable biomass energy generation may help rural communities

    The forests that surround many of California’s mountain communities tend to have an abundance of woody biomass and a pressing need for thinning to reduce fire danger. Revenue from selling forest residues to biomass power plants could help to support fuel reduction activities, but in many cases the nearest plant is so far away that hauling costs are prohibitive. The remoteness of such ...

  • Activated Carbons and Manufactured Gas Plants

    The purpose of this paper is to discuss the pros and cons related to each of these factors when using one of three accepted options in conjunction with the "hog and haul" method of remediating a site. The options are the use of (1) minimal controls, (2) extensive onsite monitoring and (3) a fabric structure with limited air testing. As we are all aware, the government continues to react to ...

  • Top 3 Uses of Activated Carbon

    Activated carbon is an effective purifier. It is used to remove organic pollutants from different gaseous, liquid and solid substances. By removing the undesirable organic compounds, activated carbon can successfully remove the odour and taste of these compounds from a wide range of things.  Unlike other purification agents that react with organic compounds and change their nature, activated ...

  • Overheating Damage at Activated Carbon Filter

    At one of the DMT’s plants recently a safety incident occurred. An Activated Carbon Filter overheated due to an incorrect mode of operation, causing damage to the installation. This led to a significant financial loss including business interruption impacts. To raise awareness for correct operation of Activated Carbon Filters, DMT publishes this S.H.E. bulletin to prevent this from ...

  • Membrane fouling mitigation by activated carbon addition in activated sludge filtration

    Activated carbon (AC) was added into the activated sludge to alleviate membrane fouling during sludge microfiltration. The fouling mitigation profiles were evaluated at different AC sizes and doses by a single-fibre microfiltration system. It was found that the granular AC added in the sludge suspension can absorb the organic substances in the sludge in a certain level, including biopolymer ...

  • Carbon footprint of food-related activities in Finnish households

    Consumers play an important role in the food chain environmental system. However, there seem to be only few studies that have focused on food-related environmental impacts of consumer activities. This paper identifies the primary consumer activities that affect carbon footprints and their relative importance, and consumer choice in household food-related transportation, preservation and ...

  • Cost effective refilling of activated carbon filter

    The leachate from a landfill in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, used to be transported by road tanker to the nearest sewage treatment plant. Since 1998 a biological treatment plant has been in operation, which has nowhandled more than 650,000 m3 of leachate, at a maximum rate of 350 m3/day. Four activated carbon filters, each filled with 20 m3, handle the residual COD load. The wastewater is fed ...
