  • Total solution: Gas and particulate analysis in Cement industry

    Cement plants are increasingly required to install continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). While these represent a significant financial outlay, a range of other factors also need to be considered when selecting a suitable CEMS. To the inexperienced, selecting a suitable CEM can mistakenly be considered as simply ensuring that the applicable national regulations (eg MACT in the USA, ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • FTIR gas analysis improves container safety

    Introduction Entry to freight containers represents a significant hazard to staff responsible for inspection, stuffing or destuffing because of the large number of airborne chemicals that can be present. Research in Germany and the Netherlands found hazardous levels of gases and vapours in around 20% of all containers and this level of contamination is now accepted as commonplace. It ...

  • Soil CO2 Flux Measurements -- Using the LI-8100 System to Collect Air Samples for Estimating Soil Trace Gas Flux

    Air samples can be collected from the same air stream used to measure soil CO2 flux with the LI-8100 Automated Soil CO2 Flux System, for estimating the flux of trace gas, such as methane (CH4), ammonia (NH3), nitrous oxide (N2O), isotopic species, etc. This application note describes a simple method for obtaining air samples from the LI- ...

  • Not All Hazards are the Same: Design considerations for matching flame and gas hazards to detector technologies

    Not all flame and gas hazards in facilities are the same, therefore the detection technology chosen should be specific to the type of hazard to be detected. How do users select technologies to see certain fires or detect certain gases? The intent of this paper is to give a broad introduction to the selection and use of flame and gas detector technologies. We will answer questions such as these: ...

  • Online Odors Monitoring in Waste Water Treatment Plants

    Odors are very distinct air contaminants as they generate nuisances (see note at the end). The factors playing a role in the determination of odor annoyance are : odor concentration and intensity, frequency, appreciation, duration, synergy and location. Chromatotec proposes an automated solution to well identify the origin and the level of odors. Technology Description We offer a ...

  • A new proposal for GHG emissions responsibility allocation: BAT approach

    In recent years, several methodologies have been developed for the quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, it is equally or more important to determine who is responsible for these emissions. The most common approach is to assign emissions to the producer (based on the Kyoto Protocol), but there are also proposals for its allocation to the consumer (based on an ecological ...

  • Comprehensive Odor Emissions Study Hall Street Wastewater Treatment Plant Concord, New Hampshire

    ABSTRACTThe operation of the Hall Street wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Concord, NH has caused the emission of objectionable odors from various liquid and solids treatment processes resulting in periodic odor complaints from its neighbors. The City of Concord retained Fay, Spofford & Thorndike (FST) to conduct a comprehensive odor emissions study at the Hall Street WWTP and to recommend ...

  • The Other Side of Zirconium Oxide case study

    Regular Fuel Efficiency Applications Separate Oxygen and Combustibles Sensors In standard flue gas applications for Thermox analyzers, the user generally tries to extract the maximum energy from the fuel and transfers as much of that energy as possible to the process. These applications require the process to be operated as efficiently as possible by keeping both oxygen (excess air) and ...

  • Cost Containment: Beyond the Obvious

    Utilities today can implement a number of different initiatives to help them contain costs and maximize profits. Some of those, such as switching to a more efficient fuel source if possible, can produce obvious results that are relatively easy to calculate. But there are other initiatives, though less obvious, that can produce significant results at the bottom line. One such cost-containment ...

  • Pollution monitoring in Cement Industry

    The rising use of waste based fuels in the cement industry, both for economic and Environmental objectives, combined with the strengthening of air emission regulations around the world is pushing many operators to face a wider list of pollutants to monitor this, with associated costs. The design of appropriate solutions meeting local regulation is the key to maximize the cost benefit of the fuel ...
