  • Process analytics in claus plants – Case Study

    Sulfur recovery The relatively high sulfur content of the still available crude oil and natural gas reserves and the more stringent standards for sulfur emissions from oil, gas, and chemical processing facilities demand reliable and cost effective technologies for sulfur recovery. Sulfur recovery refers to the conversion of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) as byproduct of natural gas plants and ...

  • A statistical–analytical methodology for the construction of abatement cost curves

    This paper outlines a procedure for the construction of pollution abatement cost curves in the perspective of cost-effectiveness analysis for meeting environmental performance standards. After a conceptual exposition, it gives detailed practical guidelines for statistical and analytical conventions for building up an abatement cost curve for a specific type of environmental pressure or pollution, ...

  • Management of hazardous materials generated by environmental analytical laboratories

    All environmental analytical laboratories unavoidably generate some hazardous waste in the performance of their activities. A workable plan to manage this waste is essential to the safe, economical, and legal operation of such a laboratory. Government environmental laboratories have the added responsibility of serving as examples to the industrial community and public under their jurisdiction. ...

  • Setting the standards for headspace sampling by PID

    The responsiveness of PIDs to virtually all VOCs has seen them become the accepted tool for initial site entry assessment, ensuring optimal detection of unknown and often toxic or hazardous chemicals found at hazardous waste sites and chemical emergencies. The speed and accuracy of modern PID equipment means that many worker and community safety concerns during initial and ongoing operations can ...

  • Analytical Methodology for the Characterization of Steels and Iron Alloys by Atomic Absorption Analysis

    The analysis of irons and steels has always been a very important job in the industrial and commercial environment. The grading of steels and iron alloys is critical to characterizing their respective strengths to corrosion and stress. There are also many protocols for the several hundred types of steels available. Fe is always the primary component, with elements such as Ni and Cr as major ...

  • Use of process analytics for cracking processes in refineries – Case Study

    Crude oil processing Crude oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbon compounds and relatively small quantities of other materials such as oxygen, nitrogen, sulphur, salt and water as well as inorganics and metals. It occurs naturally in the ground and was formed millions of years ago. Crude oil varies from source to source in composition and colour. It is typically mixed with gases, which have to ...

  • Improving Safety by Conforming to Industry Standards and Certifications

    Abstract Globally, safety standards play a key role in designing and executing gas and flameame detection projects. How can these standards, which might seem cumbersome at times, help users make informed decisions? What information can be used to assist in conforming to standards and maximizing safety? This paper will analyze standards from an end-user view, will consider ...

  • A middleware framework to create data structures for a visual analytics object oriented approach

    Visual analytics requires the use of large datasets and most of the times visualisations use their own data structures definition or make use of simple standards such as XML, CVS, or text files. Our proposal presents a middleware framework that focuses on providing a way to create those data structures, allowing to access heterogeneous data sources. The framework allows defining data structures ...

  • Greywater treatment for reuse: comparison of reuse options using analytic hierarchy process

    The objective of the present study was to: (i) examine the performance of two-stage sand filtration and the effect of coagulants on greywater (GW) characteristics; (ii) assess the quality of treated GW for reuse; and (iii) compare reuse options using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). Four treatment options were examined on site. The first option was related to two-stage sand filtration ...
