Resource use and pollutant emissions due to ship recycling in India

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Jun. 30, 2016)

The Alang shipbreaking yards in India recycle almost half of all end-oflife ships worldwide. The major activity at the yards is plate-cutting, used to recover steel from ships. This process consumes nearly 29 kg of oxygen and 7 kg of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and emits almost 22 kg of CO2 per 1 km-long cut with a 1 mm depth. This study reveals ...

Air Emissions/Off-Gas Treatment

by Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable  (Jan. 1, 1997)

A number of technologies have been widely applied for removal of VOCs from off-gas streams. However, the application of these technologies to off-gases from site remediation may be quite limited. Biofiltration has been widely applied for VOC destruction in Europe and Japan, but it has only recently been used in the United States. Catalytic and ...
