  • Envision 2050: The Future of Transportation

    What will transportation be like in 2050? Will we all be stuck in one giant traffic jam? Flying to our appointments in personal airborne delivery systems? Teleporting ourselves and our stuff around? Or not going anywhere at all? In large part, the answers to these questions will depend on how we answer two other questions today: What would we like it to be like? And what would it ...

  • Surface reaction and transport kinetics of hydrogen through palladium-based membranes under gas co-existing with hydrogen atmospheres

    In order to understand how gas co-existing with hydrogen affects the hydrogen permeability of a silver 23wt%-palladium membrane, the surface reaction of hydrogen was evaluated from the continuity of the surface reaction rate and the bulk diffusion flux of hydrogen based on the results of hydrogen-permeation measurements. The interference effect of the co-existing species was quantified as a ...

  • MJB&A Evaluates opportunities for natural gas in the marine sector case study

    On behalf of the American Clean Skies Foundation, MJB&A prepared a comprehensive assessment of the opportunities for natural gas to power U.S. marine vessels, including tugs, barges, ferries, and Great Lakes bulk carriers. Most marine vessels today operate on liquid petroleum fuel – either marine distillate or marine residual oil. Worldwide there are fewer than 50 vessels in-service or ...

  • Dosing and mixing of powdered activated carbon for flue gas applications

    Subject: Powdered activated carbon (PAC) is dosed in dry powder form into flue gas for the removal of dioxins, furanes, mercury and other heavy metals from flue gases. Gericke supplies complete solutions for the handling of bulk solids. These complete installations are characterized by their clean, accurate, trouble- and dustfree operation.

  • Simplified method for quantifying theoretical underestimation of chamber-based trace gas fluxes

    Received for publication June 19, 2009. Closed chambers used to measure soil-atmosphere exchange of trace gases including nitrous oxide (N2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) generate errors due to suppression of the gas concentration gradient at the soil-atmosphere interface. A method is described here for estimating the magnitude of flux underestimation arising from chamber deployment. The technique is ...

  • Analysis of key trends and drivers in greenhouse gas emissions in the EU between 1990 and 2014

    1 GHG emissions in 2014 compared to 2013 1.1 Summary (last year) Total GHG emissions (excluding LULUCF) decreased by 185 million tonnes, or 4.1% compared to 20132 to reach their lowest level in 2014 (4282 Mt CO2 eq.). This significant decrease in emissions in 2014 came with an increase in GDP of 1.4 %. This resulted in a lower GHG-emission intensity of GDP in the EU ...

  • MIOX offers another sanitizing alternative

    It was with great interest that I read your article titled “Drinking It In”(February 2007). The story specifically mentions filtrations and UV as two examples of water technologies used in the aquatics business. I would like to bring to your readers’ attention another promising technology that got its start in the municipal water market. Chlorine-based mixed oxidants originally were developed for ...

  • Conservation through water reuse: Experiences from the Santa Ana Pueblo

    The Situation: The Tamayamé, the Native American Tribal members of the Santa Ana Pueblo, north of Albuquerque, NM, are committed to natural resource conservation and future economic development. In the late 1990s, they built a water reclamation facility and began reusing treated effluent to irrigate the Pueblo’s golf course. Although they were pleased with the safety and ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Fuels

    Fuel contaminants are generally nonhalogenated. Information presented for nonhalogenated VOCs and nonhalogenated SVOCs may also be appropriate for many of the fuel contaminants presented in this subsection. Contamination by fuel contaminants in the unsaturated zone exists in four phases: vapor in the pore spaces; sorbed to subsurface solids; dissolved in water; or as NAPL. The nature and extent ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Nonhalogenated VOC`s

    An important consideration when evaluating a remedy is whether the compound is nonhalogenated or halogenated. A nonhalogenated compound is one which does not have a halogen (e.g., fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine) attached to it. The vendor of the technology being evaluated must be informed whether the compounds to be treated are nonhalogenated or halogenated. In most instances, the vendor ...

  • Temporary vehicle refuelling station for local authority demonstration

    All UK cities have to work towards achieving the Government’s targets for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions as part of a Low Emissions Strategy. In Spring 2010, Sheffield became one of the very first cities in the UK to use a mobile gas filling station to fuel commercial vehicles. This was the result of a lease agreement between Chesterfield BioGas Ltd and the City Council, for ...

  • Gentle emptying of powder tankers

    Gericke of Switzerland has successfully designed a pneumatic conveying system for discharging delicate powders and granulates from road tankers, and has also introduced a similar system for unloading product from dry bulk container liners. Several other recent pneumatic conveying developments are also itemised. Retention of powder characteristics such as bulk density and particle size is ...

  • ClorTec® An Operational Profile of a Pennsylvania Water Treatment Plant’s On-site Hypochlorite Generating System

    For more than 30 years, on-site generation of sodium hypochlorite has been a key process in water treatment for municipal and industrial applications. The benefits of the on-site generation process over chlorine gas and bulk hypochlorite have been well documented and include: Eliminate bulk storage of hazardous chemicals Reduce risk to plant personnel because of drastically eliminate hazardous ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Halogenated VOCs

    An important consideration when evaluating a remedy is whether the compound is halogenated or nonhalogenated. A halogenated compound is one onto which a halogen (e.g., fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine) has been attached. The nature of the halogen bond and the halogen itself can significantly affect performance of a technology or require more extensive treatment than for nonhalogenated ...

  • HM-218D – The US Moves Forward on Gasohol and Other Updates

    On January 28, the US DOT passed Amendment HM-218D. This final rule adopts various updates and amendments to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) of 49 CFR, and is intended to provide relief to industry by clarifying and, in some cases, relaxing certain requirements. A major goal of this amendment is to help the environment by simplifying the shipment of Gasohol, a blend of gasoline with ...

  • Art or Science?

    The choice between dilute phase pneumatic conveying and flexible screw conveying is not always clear Everyone has rules of thumb when it comes to choosing a conveying system — rules based on bulk material characteristics, required flow rates and distances, source and destination, plant configuration, and other variables. But those with experience in all types of systems will tell ...

  • Small–mid scale LNG: “45 years of experience in Spain”

    In December of 1970 the first LNG “satellite” facility was commissioned in north east Spain, in a village close to the French border, inaugurating the “small scale” business in the Iberian Peninsula. Since then, more than half a million trucks have been loaded at the LNG import facilities and downloaded in hundreds of satellites LNG plants. The business model of large LNG ...

  • Zodiac Maritime Agencies gains significant advantages from independent verification of its Environmental and Safety Report

    There is a general recognition throughout industry, commerce and the public sector of the increasing need for transparency across business operations. There is recognition that they are increasingly coming under the spotlight as much for the ‘non-financial’ aspects of their operations as for the financial. Increasingly well informed and engaged procurers are interested in how the ...
