  • 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 ...

  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • Controlling Hazardous Air Emissions With A Catalytic Oxidizer

    As the full effect of the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments continue to impact today’s industry, many companies will be required to install new or additional air pollution control equipment. With well over twenty years of proven success, catalytic oxidation is a popular method for controlling volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.During the past 25 years, industry has made progress in ...

  • A cost-effective method for controlling compost air emissions

    In October 2007, ECS began conducting trials at California State University Fresno (CSUF) to explore using the new patent pending AC Composter (ACC) covered aerated static pile system to manage dairy manure solids and comply with airquality standards. A two-zone portable pilot system was delivered by ECS and installed at the CSUF research dairy. This research is being conducted under a Phase I ...

  • Metal Coating Emission Control

    The use of regenerative thermal oxidizers is expanding into applications where they wouldn’t have been considered years ago, says Mike Scholz As the first generation of oxidizer systems in the industry nears the end of their service life, many canmaking plants face repair or replacement of their existing air pollution control systems. Like many others in the industry, a Silgan canmaking ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Control

    Most of the time, people think about Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions with carbon dioxide, which is the most common of the GHGs. While fairly typical, carbon dioxide isn’t the only GHG U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates.  Since EPA has begun regulating GHG emissions under its Clean Air Act authority, sources of emissions from others may require add-on air pollution ...

  • Controlling particulate emissions

    Cloud chamber technology uses electrically charged water droplets to attract fine particles and remove them from exhaust streams. At the Saint-Gobain Advanced Ceramics Boron Nitride (formerly Carborundum) plant in Amherst, ...

  • Clearing the air: the use of bio-oxidation for industrial air emissions control

    The wood products industry began rather ardous road to emissions control in the early 1990s with the first installation of a thermal oxidizer (an RTO) at a California MDF facility, for volatile organic compound (VOC) control. During the ensuing years, virtually every panel board facility has had to control emissions of VOCs, and up until the last few years, always with some sort of thermal ...


  • Effective control of fugitive emissions

    Are you Building a brand new process and want to get through the permit process quickly? Looking for ways to further reduce emissions? Under an order from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to further reduce emissions? With EPA continually pressuring industry to reduce emissions, control of fugitives is increasingly important to your overall emissions ...

  • Methods for the control of oil vapour emissions

    There are many oil vapours to discharge from oil containers into the atmosphere in oil operations (such as storage and loading). Two basic concepts are discussed regarding the control of oil vapour emission (OVE). The first is to invent active methods to restrain the OVE. The second is to develop passive tail–end remediation technologies to control the released vapour. Oil vapour recovery ...

  • Put energy into emission control projects

    Many companies feel pressured to spend the least amount possible to meet environmental regulations, primarily because compliance isn’t a profit generating endeavor. What some environmental and compliance managers fail to realize is that emission control equipment can quickly become a profit decreasing endeavor with this penny wise-pound foolish approach. With mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) ...

  • EPA Increases Ammonia Emissions Control

    Concern about ammonia emissions in the air and the water continues to grow, both officially and unofficially. As U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) moves to further reduce ammonia concentrations in surface waters, common water treatment methods transform what had been a water pollution problem into an air pollution issue. Earlier this year, EPA released its draft Integrated Risk ...

  • Hydrocarbon evaporative emissions & control for automotives

    Even the cleanest and most efficient vehicle on the market today still pollutes the air and otherwise damages the environment. Motor vehicles emit several noxious pollutants which vehicle emissions standards are designed to regulate. Vehicles generally emit Hydrocarbons (HC), Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Fine airborne particulate matter (PM) as pollutants that require control. ...

  • Panelboard emission control: An historical perspective

    Sometimes the best view of the future can be seen from the past. That's why we've written this paper. We believe that an understanding of the history of emission controls in the panelboard industry will help everyone understand how this industry got to where it is and what the future holds. This account focuses on the evolution of technology devoted to the control of air pollution emissions from ...

  • Kinetic Evaluation of H2S and Ammonia Biofiltration for Air Emissions Control

    ABSTRACTTraditionally the control of H2S emissions includes direct air stripping, precipitation and chemical oxidation. In this study, low cost biofiltration using a natural media of wood chips and compost and a commercial biofiltration media were evaluated for the removal of moderate concentrations of H2S (up to 50 ppmv) at different Empty Bed Contact Times (EBCT) in the range of 10-80 seconds. ...


  • Carbon Fiber Emission Control Strategies

    Problem Carbon fiber (fibre) and graphite reinforced polymers are materials that have, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use everyday by making them stronger, lighter and more durable. However, the manufacturing process can have serious environmental ramifications and immediate danger to human health if careful consideration is not given to emission control at the ...

  • Air Pollution Control Specs

    As the full effect of the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments continue to impact today’s industry, many companies will be required to install new or additional air pollution control equipment.  With more than 25 years of proven success in a variety of industries, catalytic and thermal oxidation has become a popular method for controlling volatile organic compound (VOC) and hazardous air ...

  • Air Emissions from the automobile manufacturing industry: a bio-oxidation pilot study of paint emissions control

    Bio•Reaction Industries (BRI) was contacted by Toyota to assess the abatement potential of an engineered bio-oxidation system (biofilter). The proposed intent of the pilot was to evaluate the effectiveness of biofiltration as available alternative to traditional VOC removal technology on an existing 3 stage wheel paint booth. A pilot unit consisting of a biotrickling filter and a separate ...
