  • Peristaltic Pumps excel in Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas applications

    Biogas is a natural gas also known as biofuel or biomass and is produced by breaking down organic material such as household waste, manure and crops grown specifically for biofuel with temperature-sensitive microbes and capturing the by-products. In practice, it is difficult to find a pumping system for this application. Why? The pumps needs to handle fluid media as well as gas parts ...

  • Case study - Ljusdal Energi, Sweden

  • Next, the air car?

    Vehicles account for 26% of the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions, and 51% of the average household’s daily CO2 output (http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/climate.shtml), according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. So, clearly fuel economy is critical to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.Big car manufacturers, like GM, Ford and Toyota, have seen ...

  • 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 ...

  • Will the climate change landscape shift with Obama at the helm?

    Those with a vested interest in energy, the environment and climate change are probably well aware of President-elect Barack Obama’s position?. The Obama-Biden ticket campaigned with an aggressive environmental platform that includes implementation of an economy-wide cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050. The proposed cap-and-trade policy will require all ...


  • Denmark’s Near-Zero-Waste Wonder

    Has this Danish community found the formula for environmentally friendly industry? When we look closely at systems in nature — coral reefs or rainforests, for instance — we see something we don’t often see in human systems: mutually beneficial relationships and energy flows among the various elements, such as air, water, rocks, soil, and plant and animal life. If we ...

  • Full-Scale Experience with the Sharon Process through the Eyes of the Operators

    ABSTRACTThis paper summarizes different operating aspects and experiences of several SHARON plants. The SHARON process is suitable for treatment of high strength ammonia wastewaters such as reject water from dewatering of digested sewage sludge and wastewater from sludge drying or incineration plants. The aerated retention time and nitrite concentration are the two most important process ...

  • Measurement matters

    The following article highlights some of the latest developments within the Energy Institute’s Hydrocarbon Management Committee (HMC), which produces guidance documents covering petroleum quantity and quality issues. The most significant news over the past few months is that the Energy Institute (EI), through the British Standards Institution, has been awarded the Secretariat of the ISO ...
