  • Monitoring of Terpene Emissions from Pine Trees by Auto-TDGCs

    It has been established that organic aerosols (OA) makes up a major fraction of fine particulate matter in all region of the atmosphere. This fraction accounts approximately for half of the total PM2.5 dry mass. Primary OA is directly emitted in the trophosphere from anthropological and natural sources whereas secondary OA (SOA) is formed in-situ in the atmosphere from the oxidation of biogenic ...

  • A project "Transformation of air-pollution, modelling its transport and dispersion"

    Information about a new project is given in this contribution. The project is financed by the Czech Ministry of Environment and deals with the problem of summer photochemical smog formation. Field campaigns and utilisation of existing monitoring network data are supposed for analysing both biogenic emissions and emissions due to human activity. An important part of this project consists in ...

  • Is it better to burn or bury waste for clean electricity generation?

    The use of municipal solid waste (MSW) to generate electricity through landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) and waste-to-energy (WTE)projectsrepresentsroughly14%ofU.S.nonhydrorenewable electricity generation. Although various aspects of LFGTE and WTE have been analyzed in the literature, this paper is the first to present a comprehensive set of life-cycle emission factors per unit of electricity ...

  • Volatile Organic Compounds measurement in tropical and temperate climates: concentration levels in urban and rural areas

    Rapid urbanization and economic development in past decades have led to air pollution problems such as excess of nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and Semivolatile Organic Compounds (SVOCs). Motor vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions, chemical solvents as well as biogenic emissions are the major anthropogenic sources of VOCs. Depending on the area ...

  • Update on Federal Air and GHG Regulations Affecting Landfills

    EPA’s recent regulatory changes are expected to alter the way landfills are regulated for the foreseeable future with a potential to add additional compliance costs for the industry.  The air quality and greenhouse gas (GHG) regulatory framework at the federal level is currently in a state of flux with respect to landfills. The landfill industry awaits the issuance of a revised ...

  • EPA isues GHG BACT guidance

    Beginning in 2011, major sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that trigger Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting must implement Best Available Control Technology (BACT) for GHG emissions from new and modified sources. EPA has issued a variety of guidance in an attempt to clarify the BACT determination process for GHG emissions from common stationary sources:1 EPA’s ...
