  • Prepare now for the carbon tax bill or face hefty fines

    To avoid massive financial penalties, South Africa-based industries need to immediately prepare for the implementation of the Carbon Tax Bill, warns Roger Rusch, CEO of IWC (Industrial Water Cooling). In November 2015, the National Treasury published the Draft Carbon Tax Bill for public comment. Once implemented, the Bill will penalise companies with excessive Green House Gas (GHG) ...

  • Chemical Industry: Compliance problems solved by Ethylene Oxide Scrubber at Specialty Gas Plant Chemical Industry The ethylene glycol produced in the ethylene oxide scrubbing operation acts as an antifreeze to allow year-round operation

    Problem: A specialty gas producer was confronted with an EPA compliance problem in dealing with ethylene oxide (EtO). The chemical had been added to the toxicity lists of the U.S. EPA and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Effective August 21, 1984, the OSHA standard for EtO limited exposure to a 1 ppm, eight-hour time weighted average. Ethylene ...

  • Holmestown waste management facility, Wicklow, Ireland

    AFS were appointed by Wicklow County Council to design, build and install a flaring system that would last the life-cycle of their new waste management facility. We designed a flare that could safely extract gases being generated by the new facility; the flare could operate at up to 2000m3/hr but would also operate effectively at very low flow rates. The current configuration includes a ...

  • Sand Plant

    Sand Plant,Sand Processing Plant The sand plant reserve came from a old stream bed, that had a 20 to 30 ft thick sand deposit in it. It was sampled and the lab testing revealed that there was less than 0.03% iron, and a few other metals (TiO2, Al2O3, MgO). The sand plant equipment length of the deposit was over a mile, so ...

  • Pyrolysis

    Introduction: Pyrolysis is formally defined as chemical decomposition induced in organic materials by heat in the absence of oxygen. In practice, it is not possible to achieve a completely oxygen-free atmosphere; actual pyrolytic systems are operated with less than stoichiometric quantities of oxygen. Because some oxygen will be present in any pyrolytic system, nominal oxidation will occur. If ...

  • Air Pollution Control: Ready for the 21st Century

  • Case study - Bi-On Carb OX: Odor treatment in WWTPs. Case study SIMTEJO (Portugal)

    Avoiding problems associated with foul odors in and around collectors and waste water treatment plants is today one of the major focus points to avoid possible issues related to worker safety, as well as minimizing negative social discomforts caused by the foul odors. The main sources that generate foul odors in WWTPs occur at stages of anaerobiosis, where the lack of oxygen favours the ...

  • Biofilter Applications in the Coatings Industry

    Soaring energy costs and the high cost of ‘end-of-pipe’ pollution control equipment has caused companies and regulatory agencies to re-evaluate ‘unconventional’ means of achieving VOC and HAP emissions control. The coatings industry is an excellent candidate for alternative, unconventional controls, as VOC and HAP reductions have not been as strident as has been the case in many other industries. ...


  • The Use Of UV For Dechlorination

    For many years chemical disinfection techniques have been used to provide microbiologically pure water for industrial and domestic use. Free chlorine, typically introduced by municipal water treatment plants in gaseous form, has been employed for many decades as a primary oxidising agent for the control of microbiological growth. Free chlorine can also be introduced through the injection of ...

  • Controlling Pharmaceutical Coating & Drying Process Emissions

    Capturing and destroying harmful emissions from pharmaceutical processes can be challenging. It’s not because the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are difficult to destroy using catalytic or thermal techniques. It’s because their concentrations can be so high. These process streams raise safety concerns, both when they’re collected in vents and when they reach the final ...

  • EPA proposes updates to CISWI rules

    On June 4, 2010, the U.S. EPA proposed updates to the Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources (NSPS) for Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration (CISWI) Units (NSPS Subpart CCCC) and Emission Guidelines (EG) for Existing CISWI Units (EG Subpart DDDD), collectively referred to as the "CISWI Rules." In order to describe the proposed updates to the CISWI Rules, it is necessary ...

  • Turning a Liability into an Asset: A Landfill Gas-to-Energy Project Development Handbook

    Each person in the United States generates about 4.5 pounds of solid waste per day almost one ton per year. Most of this waste is deposited in municipal solid waste landfills. As this landfilled waste decomposes (a process that may take 30 years or more), it produces landfill gas. Landfill gas contributes to the formation of smog and poses an explosion hazard if uncontrolled. Furthermore, because ...
