  • Case study - Automotive parts coater exceeds local air quality requirements

    Today many companies are faced with unique air pollution control problems arising from their coating operations. Not only are vented emissions required to be controlled, but now a more pressing issue is how to treat fugitive emissions. Fugitive emissions are the VOC and HAP releases that occur at the coating process or in a mixing area. Fugitive emissions are sometimes difficult to capture when ...

  • Future Cars & Shifting Environmental Burdens

    Ask the average person what they think passenger cars could be like in the future and you are bound to get a wide range of opinions. The more fanciful, looking into the longer term future, might envision an ultra-high-tech world where passenger cars are fitted with “anti-gravity” drives and hover around, powered by nuclear fission perhaps, with zero emissions. But chances are ...

  • Taking Fossil Fuels to the Next Level - Standards Underpin Extraction, Processing and Distribution

    To the average person, the oil and gas industry may appear simple — a matter of literally tapping into a natural resource and distributing it to customers. Of course the matter of extraction is rarely simple, and in the case of emergent hydraulic fracturing technology, it is particularly complex and capital-intensive. In fact, the world of petroleum and natural gas extraction, distribution ...
