  • The Dangers of Hydrogen Sulfide and Filtration with Activated Carbon

    Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a poisonous, highly flammable, colorless gas that is associated with a ‘rotten egg’ odor. As stated by cchealth.org, “hydrogen sulfide is created naturally by decaying organic matter and is released from sewage sludge, liquid manure, and sulfur hot springs.” It also is a by-product from industrial processes such as natural gas processing, ...

  • BM Respirometry benefits for activated sludge process management, research and training

    A biological process controlled by non-biological measurements? All treatment plant efficiencies are geared to the waste that they receive. The microorganisms found in the waste need food and oxygen to survive, the food is provided as soluble organic carbon in the waste stream and the oxygen is obtained through the aeration process in the treatment plant. Once a treatment plant ...

  • PSA Technology hits the Fast Lane

    Conventional pressure-swing adsorption (PSA) has been used ito separate and purify industrial gases for more than 35 years. The technology, first developed by ExxonMobil and Air Liquide in the late 1950s, is based upon the capacity of adsorbents to selectively adsorb and desorb particular gases as gas pressure is raised and lowered. PSA is currently used in applications ranging from the ...

  • SVE and Air Sparging

    Stage 1: The system is a PLC controlled plant equipped with telemetry. Rotary Lobe blowers were used to abstract vapour contaminated with chlorinated hydrocarbons and a similar high pressure blower was used to inject air via solenoid valves individually controlled by the PLC. Extracted vapour was treated in large GRS 2 tonne vapour-phase activated carbon vessels.Stage 2: The system comprised ...


  • Groundwater pump & treat and SIPEX skimmimg system

    GRS has supplied and installed a system for the abstraction of free-phase floating creosote contamination. The system comprises frequency controlled submersible pumps for precise hydraulic control and our motorised interface tracking system which, due to large local water table fluctuations, was modified to provide a product/water interface tracking range of 5m.Abstracted groundwater is pumped to ...


  • Woodside goodwyn - treating flushing fluid

    Client: Woodside Goodwyn During a scheduled shutdown on the Goodwyn platform, Woodside contracted CETCO Oilfield Services to treat the fluid generated during a flushing operation on the Goodwyn West Alpha condensate (water) stripping column T-100 and, install a permanent CETCO adsorption OIW (Oil in Water) package. During the shutdown of the Goodwyn platform, the vessel was drained, purged with ...

  • Waste Transfer Station Odours - Case Study

    Application Greenstar Ltd. who operate the large waste transfer station at Ballyogan needed to ensure working conditions inside the building were acceptable to the workforce and that the surrounding area did not suffer from odourous emissions. An early part of the design process called for an efficient extraction system to draw air from the Reception Hall and the Baling Hall to meet these ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Halogenated SVOCs in Ground Water, Surface Water, and Leachate

    It may be necessary to know other subsurface information to remediate halogenated semivolatile organics in water. Treatability studies may be required to determine the contaminant biodegradability for any biodegradation technologies. Treatability studies are also necessary to ensure that the contaminated ground water can be treated effectively at the design flow. A subsurface geologic ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs in Air Emissions/Off-Gases

    Three technologies that are most commonly used to treat nonhalogenated VOCs in air emissions/off-gases are carbon adsorption, catalytic oxidation, and thermal oxidation. Carbon adsorption is a remediation technology in which pollutants are removed from air by physical adsorption onto the carbon grain. Carbon is 'activated' for this purpose by processing the carbon to create porous particles with ...

  • Project profile - Blue Rhino Hamptonville, NC

    Background In 2007, Blue Rhino, located in Hamptonville, NC, contacted AdEdge Technologies, Inc. (AdEdge) to install an iron and manganese treatment system. The amount of iron (5.6 mg/L Fe) and manganese (0.6 mg/L Mn) were well above the maximum contaminant levels of 0.3 mg/L Fe an 0.05 mg/L Mn respectively. The pH of the Blue Rhino site (6.10) was quite below the maximum contaminant ...
