  • Zero emissions day: What it is and why we need it

    Today is September the 21st – a day that didn’t hold any particular significance until a simple observation occurred in the 1980’s. Ken Wallace, father of a newborn daughter, realized, after witnessing the local neighborhood pizzeria truck, parked, running and driverless, combined with the surrounding traffic that “Stopping all this for a bit would be most excellent for ...

  • Coal fired power plant achieves ZLD for FGD wastewater

    The Facility Illinois’ City of Springfield’s Dallman Power Station’s three coal-fired units and soon to be installed fourth unit, are equipped with flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems (scrubbers) to control sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions. The Problem A sharp increase in boron concentration in the FGD wastewater required that The City ...

  • Is `clean` coal possible?

    VANCOUVER, April 18, 2007 (GLOBE-Net) - Coal is the world’s most commonly used fuel to produce electrical energy, and will continue as such for some time. Yet it is one of the ’dirtiest’ of all fossil fuels. It is a major source of toxic air pollutants and the leading source of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Many believe ’clean coal’ technologies will improve the energy efficiency of ...

  • Zero Waste to Landfill Goal: Portland Aluminium

     Portland Aluminium has achieved a significant reduction in the amount of waste going to landfill. Although driven primarily by business needs including the pursuit of efficiencies, waste reduction has been achieved by evaluating processes, gaining the commitment of its workforce and combining these efforts with both cleaner production and waste minimisation concepts. ...


  • Thermal Power - Rehabilitation of Existing Plants Industry - Pollution Prevention Guidelines

    Introduction Pollution Prevention Guidelines to provide technical advice and guidance to staff and consultants involved in pollution-related projects. The guidelines represent state-of-the-art thinking on how to reduce pollution emissions from the production process. In many cases, the guidelines provide numerical targets for reducing pollution, as well as maximum ...

  • U.S. headed for massive decline in carbon emissions*

    For years now, many members of Congress have insisted that cutting carbon emissions was difficult, if not impossible. It is not. During the two years since 2007, carbon emissions have dropped 9 percent. While part of this drop is from the recession, part of it is also from efficiency gains and from replacing coal with natural gas, wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The United States has ended a ...

  • Natural Gas Overlooked in Obama's Clean Power Plan

    NatGas: The Unnoticed Bridge to Achieving Obama's Clean Power Initiative Los Angeles, CA – (September 18, 2015) – It is now apparent that the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan aims to significantly reduce the amount of power generated by coal. It’s a game changer for utilities, mining companies and equipment suppliers. And, it’s ...

  • Mixed Oxidant Replaces “Cocktail” of Chemicals in Power Plan

    Cooling Tower Water Systes Synopsis In 2010 NIPSCO installed two MIOX RIO Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chlorine generator systems on two of the four cooling towers at R.M. Schahfer Generating Station.  After switching to MIOX for cooling tower water treatment, the two towers experienced minimized algae growth, better biocontrol and lower Legionella counts, ...

  • NOx in Non-Utility Industries - Part I NOx in Non-Utility Industries - Part I - Air emission origins, best control solutions and monitoring methodology for nitrogen oxides

     Problems with reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) are widespread in the general process industries. These industries, together with medium size utility and power generators contribute about 15 percent of global NOx emissions. The emission sources addressed include various heaters employed in chemical and petrochemical plants, nitric and sulfuric acid plants, glass furnaces, iron and steel mills, ...


  • Combined cycles for CO2-capture with high efficiency

    The presented paper gives an overview on combined cycles for CO2-capture with high efficiency focussed on processes using a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC), because of the air separating ability of the SOFC-membrane. The SOFC-membrane is only permeable for oxygen ions, so the cathode exhaust gas is oxygen depleted air, which should be discharged to the atmosphere after recycling or using the heat ...

  • Solar City Report: How Los Angeles can Gain the Economic and Environmental Competitive Edge

    I. Executive SummaryGlobal Green USA (“GGUSA”) has proposed that the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (“LADWP”) commit to “carving out” at least 1% [approximately 80 megawatts (“MW”)] of LADWP’s total electricity generation capacity by 2017 for generation capacity from solar photovoltaic (“PV”) technology. This target falls within the City’s ...


  • Greenhouse Gas Accounting Framework for Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

    Foreword Meeting the global challenge to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and avoid dangerous climate impacts requires deploying a portfolio of emission reduction technologies. We must both commit to broad and deep efficiencies in the way our societies’ consume energy and to significant increases in power supplies from low carbon energy sources. At the same time, it ...

  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...
