  • Time to address the air pollution control residue problem

    The incineration of municipal solid waste is gaining increasing importance in the UK, especially as the burning of waste can be used to generate energy, providing a more sustainable solution to our waste problem by diverting it from landfill sites. An issue with incineration is that some of our waste contains hazardous chemicals such as chlorine and lead which are volatilised during the process. ...

  • Air Pollution Control in the Printing and Web Coating Industries

    For many U.S. companies in the printing and web coating business, the use of an Air Pollution Control System (APCS) to control harmful air pollutants is not new.  In these industries, depending upon their location, companies have been installing APCS since the early 1970's.  However, for some companies the clock is still ticking regarding their compliance with local, state and federal ...

  • 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 ...

  • How conditions affect cookies and air pollution control solutions

    Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite treats. Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, and, of course, chocolate chips. Combine the ingredients together and you get a delicious cookie. Somehow, using the same ingredients the cookies do not always turn out the same. Sometimes they are thinner and crispier. Other times, they are soft and chewy. After watching cooking shows, I have come to ...

  • Bio-oxidation control of air emissions from panel board production – A new direction

    Biofilters or bio-oxidation systems have been used for control of air emissions, primarily odors, since the 1960’s. Those early uses in the U.S. were largely relegated to odor control, primarily H2S, mercaptans and skatols, from wastewater treatment facilities. The Europeans were more aggressive in applying biofilter systems to various industrial air emissions, again primarily for odor control in ...

  • Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging ...
