  • Dirt, The Ultimate Catalyst

    AbstractA catalyst is a substance which alters the rate of a chemical reaction but is not consumed in the reaction.  In earlier days of chemical processing, catalysts used to promote commercial chemical processes were most often made of inordinately expensive Aprecious metals such as platinum or rhodium. Over the last decade or so, Abase metal catalysts such as manganese oxide and copper ...

  • The benzene problem: impact of three-way catalyst technology: potential for further improvement

    Chemical ionisation mass spectrometry (CI-MS) was applied to study the benzene emission characteristics of a TWC-vehicle at a time resolution of one Hertz. Three important operating conditions with increased emissions were identified: at vehicle start; at extended stop-and-go situations; and whenever a catalyst-induced benzene formation occurs. The cold start influence was detectable for about ...

  • Silicone converter succeeds with custom air pollution control equipment - Case study

    Many industries utilize silicone as an ingredient in their manufactured product. Silicone enhances the attributes of the product or helps to improve production characteristics. Whatever the reason may be, users of solvent borne silicone's all face very troubling issues when it comes to the selection of the right air pollution control system. Among the air pollution control choices available to ...

  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • Intelligent Pollution Control

    The world faces difficult pollution control decisions. For every dollar spent on pollution control, there is an alternative investment in health improvement. For every dollar spent on reducing one pollutant, there is an alternative to reduce another. The most prudent course to make the best investment should include: Intelligent uncertainty Intelligent classification of options ...
