  • Technology: clean air’s unsung hero

    Last year, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Clean Air Act (CAA) and the 20th anniversary of the 1990 Amendments to the CAA. The CAA has been a huge success. From 1990 to 2008, emissions of six common pollutants were down 41%, while gross domestic product grew 64%. Emissions of volatile organic compounds dropped 31%, carbon monoxide dropped 46%, and sulfur dioxide dropped 51%. Lead ...

  • The Right Mix for Clean Air

    Reducing air pollution is an increasingly important topic all around the world. Many governments—also in developing countries—set new limits for emissions such as nitrogen oxides in flue gas. Sulzer offers advanced mixing technology for flue gas cleaning. The installation in a large power plant shows that these high-performance mixers can cope with the most difficult requirements. ...

  • Air as Clean as the Driven Snow

    While California is the most populated state in the nation, it is also home to some of America’s most natural and pristine wilderness and recreation areas. One such venue is the Snow Summit Ski Resort in Big Bear Lake.  Situated just over two hours from Los Angeles, Snow Summit is a fullservice winter resort that opened in 1952 and operates an average of 142 days a year. ...

  • Cleaning up by cleaning up

    Historically, some big businesses have made big messes. Greenhouse gas emissions, oil spills and unsafe water have become unsavoury but all-too-commonplace topics in the news and industry is beginning to sit up and take notice. Within the past couple of decades, businesses have been cropping up in Saskatchewan with the goal of cleaning up others’ messes - or simply keeping a mess from ...

  • Clearing the air on “free Air CFM” - Specs for portable duct cleaning vacuums

    Many times when researching equipment for duct cleaning vacuums you will find manufacturers posting the CFM suction ratings on their vacuums as “Free Air” or “bench Test”. The Free air test is the rating on the impeller wheel of the vacuum, simply put it is the maximum amount of airflow the impeller can produce with out any restriction. It seems as though many ...

  • New Nozzle Technology “Cleaning More with Less”

    This technical paper will explain the new nozzle technology developed by Scientific Dust Collectors that allows high air-to-cloth ratio baghouses to use 80psig of compressed air instead of the industry standard 100psig.   The reverse pulse jet baghouse has been around for over 50 years and the cleaning cycle has not changed very much during that time. The cleaning cycle is the most important ...

  • Dry/Wet Scrubbers for Clean Air Compliance

    Air-scrubbing venturis and towers may be the answer to clean air compliance for small- to medium-sized companies. Forthcoming requirements of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 will inventory many more specific chemicals considered hazardous. From acetaldehyde to xylenes, the list regulated under the air taxies program includes 189 hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). That number may ...

  • Climate change & clean technology: from challenge to opportunity

    Over the past few years, climate change and sustainability have been catapulted to the forefront of headline news. As ongoing public pressure for improved environmental stewardship continues to mount, governments are actively pursuing legislation, including regulations, to accelerate positive change. We have already witnessed significant regulatory, policy and legal changes related to lower ...

  • Big Clear Sky – A short history of the Clean Air Act

    Major advances over 50 years have led to cleaner air and groundbreaking technology. The detrimental impact of industrialization to air quality in the United States went unchecked through federal legislation for most of the first half of the 20th Century. But following the 1948 industrial catastrophe in Donora, Pennsylvania – where a cloud of smog killed 20 and injured thousands – regulation of ...

  • Green Technology for Healthy Air and Energy Conservation: New Technology for Continuous, Indoor Air Quality Monitoring

    Continuous monitoring for indoor, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) has been carried out by VOC Technologies (VOCTEC) during and after construction of Epler Hall, a newly-built green building on the PSU campus. Epler is a 6-story building devoted largely to student apartment residences, with classroom and office space on the first floor. Epler has no central heating/ventilation system. Epler’s ...

  • GHG regulation under the clean air act – recent developments

    EPA’s GHG Tailoring Rule and Senate Action On October 27, 2009, EPA published the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Tailoring Rule in the Federal Register, followed by a 60-day public comment period that ended on December 28, 2009. The proposed rule represents EPA’s effort to decrease the number of sources subject to major source ...

  • Present status and future prospect of clean coal technology in China

    Coal consumption accounts for about two thirds of the primary energy consumption in China. High economic growth has brought about a rapid increase of coal consumption. Low-efficiency combustion of a large amount of coal caused coal-smoke related air pollution. The Chinese government put forward plans to develop clean coal technology in the early 1990s, and has listed it as one of the emphases for ...

  • Citizens, engineers and air toxics: citizen participation in technology based standard setting

    This article analyses the potential for involving state and local citizen groups in technology-based standard setting for air toxics under the l990 US Clean Air Act. Congress hoped that by focusing on technology rather than risk that the standard setting process would be less contentious. This has not turned out to be the case. There are a number of points where scientists and engineers make ...

  • A global clean fossil scenario

    In this article, a so-called Clean Fossil Scenario (CFS) [1], valid for the year 2050, based on a bottom-up demand analysis, is described. It is proposed to mitigate the rise of atmospheric CO2 concentrations by disposing of the CO2 in deep sea and in other reservoirs to limit its liberation to the air. The scenario is clean, because emissions to the environment are reduced drastically compared ...
