  • In-Pile thermal desorption for treatment of Dioxin-Contaminated soil in Japan

    Abstract A demonstration of thermal treatment of dioxin-contaminated soil was completed in Japan, under the sponsorship of the Japan Ministry of the Environment. TerraTherm’s proprietary In-Pile Thermal Desorption process was demonstrated to successfully treat the soil to the required standard of 1,000 picograms of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxin (TCDD) toxic equivalents (TEQ) per ...

    from civil aviation in Turkey in 2012

    To meet the growing demand for air transport, airline companies doubled their aircraft numbers in Turkey, where civil aviation activities have shown great development in recent years. This increase in aircraft numbers resulted in an emission problem. Considering its impact on regional air quality, the growing emission amounts are at a non–negligible level. We especially take the busiest airports ...

  • Some determinants of carbon dioxide emissions in Bangladesh

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, industrial output growth, population growth and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in Bangladesh for 1972–2008 are found non–stationary in terms of both Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) and Kwiatkowski, Phillips, Schmidt and Shin (KPSS) tests with different orders of integration. As a result, the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) model and ...

  • Saving Lives with Sustainable Transport

    Sustainable transport initiatives have gained traction in recent years in developing world cities. This trend can be seen in the growth in Bus Rapid Transit and Busway systems around the world, the new bike-sharing scheme in Mexico City, or the ...

  • Evaluation of Ecological Risks Associated with the use of Chlorine Dioxide for the Bleaching of Pulp: Scientific Progress Since 1993

    1.1 Scope and Objectives A small number of viable options are presently available for the bleaching of wood pulp (delignification and brightening) during the manufacture of pulp and paper. The use of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) in the bleaching process has largely superceded the earlier use of Cl2, or elemental chlorine, in the majority of North American pulp mills: It was discovered over a decade ...

  • Using exergy to assess air pollution levels from a smokestack ? Part 2: illustration and methodology extension

    Exergy is proposed in a companion paper as a standard for the properties and potential impacts of pollutants from smokestacks, and a method was developed for exergy distributions of such pollutants. Here, the method is applied to an illustrative example. The results include spatial distributions of temperature, pollutant concentration and exergy parameters. Exergy is seen to provide an assessment ...

  • Mining activity impact on air quality in Jiu Valley, Romania

    Abstract. In Romania, in Meridional Carphatian Mountain, in the upper basin of river Jiu there is the most important coal field that produce coke coal named Jiu Valley. The oblong form of this field, surrounding by mountains, has a great importance for climatic feature, because air circulation is made more easy along the Jiu Cerna corridor, following ...

  • Can roadway design air quality impacts

    In recent years, a consensus has emerged that exposure to traffic emissions increases risks of adverse health effects for populations living, working, or going to school near large roadways.1-4 Near-roadway air pollution is characterized by elevated levels of trafficgenerated compounds compared to overall urban background levels with the gradual decrease in concentrations within several hundred ...
