These rules cover the following industry sectors: oil and natural gas exploration and production; oil and ...

  • Controlling Air Pollutants case study

    While it's not always easy to determine what's required for compliance, new technologies can help achieve air-pollution control Selecting air-pollution control equipment can be tricky. It's not only difficult to determine which pollutants must be controlled, but also which type of equipment will best control them to required levels for any given process or facility because there is no ...

  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • Return of the clean air interstate rule—The court does CAIR

    In summer 2008, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a dramatic decision to vacate the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) in its entirety (North Carolina v. EPA, No. 05-1244, D.C. Cir., July 11, 2008). Following a petition for rehearing, it seems the previous vacatur was just a temporary detour, as the Court reinstated CAIR on December 22, 2008. The reinstatement appears to turn ...

  • New air quality rules challenge oil & natural gas industry

    EPA Administrator signed a suite of proposed new air regulations affecting both the Production/Processing and Transmission/Storage sectors of the oil and natural gas industry. The proposed rules mandate the use of emission controls as well as work practices through two different air regulatory programs – New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous ...

  • Air Rule for Cement Kilns Requires 92 Percent Cut in Mercury Emissions

    Portland cement kilns will be required to reduce emissions of mercury by 92 percent as part of an Environmental Protection Agency final rule announced Aug. 9 that imposes controls for several toxic pollutants. Although most of the emissions standards in the final rule are less stringent than what the agency had proposed in 2009, the cement industry said the cost to operate the required controls ...

  • CSAPR - The new transport rule

    The core of the new Transport Rule was published in the Federal Register (76 FR 48208), approximately one year after the main rule proposal (75 FR 45210) (covered in the Fall 2010 Environmental Quarterly, Federal Transport Rule — the “New CAIR” Round 1). The new rule is known by two names. In press releases and on the EPA website, the rule is referred to as the Cross-State Air ...

  • EPA mercury rules: Keeping the lights on while removing toxics from our air

    Next week the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is expected to finalize new rules to reduce mercury and other toxic air emissions that will affect dozens of antiquated power plants currently operating without pollution controls. These rules have stirred debate in some circles as to whether retrofitting or retiring outdated plants will cause shortfalls in electricity capacity. How will new EPA ...

  • Composting releases less air pollution than previously thought - study

    A new study funded by the California Integrated Waste Board (CIWMB) indicates that well-managed composting of green waste and food waste releases significantly less air pollution than previously thought. The study also demonstrates that a relatively inexpensive management technique - covering active compost piles with a layer of finished compost - may lower air emissions even further, by as ...

    "Waste generation is my right but collection & disposal is a responsibility of others. I just throw the non-value items on the streets and outside the homes of my neighbors but the waste like newspapers, plastic items, fabrics, metals, furniture, e-waste etc. which can fetch value, I store in my house & work place and sale to scrap merchants at the best prices. I do not care for the ...

  • Coupling of neural network and dispersion models: a novel methodology for air pollution models

    Supervised neural net models and dispersion models are two important approaches for evaluating air pollution concentrations. The authors propose the development of an integrated model, in order to optimise the performances of each methodology. The concentrations evaluated by an air pollution model are coupled with a Neural Net (NN), so as to adjust the influence of important variables on ...

  • Solid waste management in Patna – analyses of ambient air and ground water pollution

    Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in Patna is disposed of in an unscientific manner without considering environmental impacts. The wastes are dumped in the low-lying areas without compliance of the MSWM Rules, 2000. The dumped wastes are mixed with biomedical wastes making it hazardous. Ambient air quality and ground water were analysed at two dump sites to study the possible impacts of MSW. The ...
