  • Coal-to-liquid fuels poised for a comeback

    Converting coal into liquid fuels is known to be more costly than current energy technologies, both in terms of production costs and the amount of greenhouse gases the process emits. Production of coal-to-liquid fuel, or CTL, has a large carbon footprint, releasing more than twice the lifecycle greenhouse gases of conventional petroleum fuels. However, with the rise in energy prices that began ...

  • Stripper Wells goes from 1 BBL to 15 BBL for less $100/day

    Feb 2017, Jenfitch, LLC working with a private independent oil service firm from Houston, Texas recently conducted a field study on four different low producing oil wells (Stripper Wells) in Pecos County, TX. These wells were generating 1-2 barrels of oil per day. Using several different methods of injecting JC 9450 into the well, the production increased up to 15 barrels per day for 5 days and ...

  • Determination of Selected ASTM Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) Using LC-MS/MS

    ASTM methods D7968-14 and D7979-15 are used to determine the same list of PFCs but in different matrices. ASTM method D7968-14 lists soil as a matrix while ASTM method 7979-15 lists water, sludge, influent, effluent and waste water as matrix options. These methods use different extraction techniques but both evaluate the samples by liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). We ...

  • How to investigate mercury in the oceans?

    Mercury is a highly toxic metal that affects the environment and can endanger people's health, as a powerful neurotoxin. The combustion of coal, waste and fuel are releasing hundreds of tons of heavy metal into the atmosphere annually, and its sediment enters to soil and water. Mercury measurements are part of the EU project "Global Mercury Observation System". The long-term goal of this ...

  • Case Study: Monitoring Fuel Treatment with On-Site Fuel Analysis

    Version 8 of our industry leading SpectrOil Optical Emission Spectrometers offers significant performance improvements and enhanced productivity. In particular the sensitivity of the instrument has been improved markedly to allow detection of trace metals down to the part per billion (ppb) level. This capability is particularly important to power generators using liquid fuel, as high levels ...

  • Wastewater and groundwater

    Nearly 25 percent of the population in the United States—in more than 25 million homes—disposes of wastewater through onsite, or unsewered, systems that return treated effluent to the ground. This is an important public health issue because many of those same homes use wells that rely on groundwater for the drinking water supply. With ...

  • Controlling Fugitive Emissions, Part 2: Permanent Total Enclosure

    Fugitive emissions are the uncontrolled release of gases into the atmosphere. This is something that occurs regularly; in fact, it often happens when we fill our cars' gas tanks. The air being displaced inside the gas tank when it is being filled causes gasoline vapor emissions (hydrocarbons) to exit into the atmosphere in an ...

  • Case study - Saubermacher Dienstleistungs AG –Austria - Plastic sorting plant for light packaging waste

    Customer SAUBERMACHER DIENSTLEISTUNGS AG is the leader of the Austrian recycling and waste collection market. The company, founded in 1979 by the family Roth, is now listed on the stock market and has 3,900 employees. SAUBERMACHER is collecting and recycling from approximately 1,600 communities in Central Europe and collaborates with over 40,000 commercial and ...

  • Controlling Fugitive Emissions, Part 1: Close Capture Hooding

    Fugitive emissions, in their simplest form, are the uncontrolled release of gases to the atmosphere. Each one of us may contribute fugitive emissions when we fill our automobile gas tanks. The displacement of air inside the gas tank causes gasoline vapor emissions (hydrocarbons) to exit out the fill spout (un-controlled) to ...

  • 99% of Interceptor contamination remediated - Case study

    What is an Interceptor Tank? An interceptor tank is a trap used to filter out hydrocarbon pollutants from rainwater runoff. It is typically used in road construction and on petrol station forecourts to prevent fuel contamination of the water table via runoff. Petrol interceptors work on the premise that some hydrocarbons such as petrol and diesel float on the ...

  • Composition, morphology, properties of coal fly ash microspheres and their application for conditioning liquid radioactive waste

    Using methods of the Mossbauer spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and thermodynamic analysis of phase formation in silicate multi-component melts, the detailed study of composition, morphology, and properties of fly ash microspheres resulting from combustion of three coals (Irsha-Borodinskii, Kuznetskii and Ekibastuzskii) was carried out. About 60 microspherical products with an iron ...

  • Underground Coal Gasification: Converting Unmineable Coal To Energy

    Currently, about 1.5 billion people –almost a quarter of the world’s population— are without electric power. The International Energy Agency estimates that world energy demand (for all forms of energy, including transportation fuels) will increase by 36 percent by 2035 and fossil fuels, such as coal, will continue to play a critical role in meeting this demand. What is ...

  • Coal sorption characteristics and coal surface tension

    Underground coal mining in the Bulli Seam of Sydney Basin, Australia encounters the problems of coal and gas outburst as the coal contains high concentration of CO 2 , where certain parts of the seam have been found to be especially hard-to-drain. In order to better understand these problems, the influence of temperature and moisture on sorption capacity of bituminous coal was investigated at ...

  • The restructuring of the international coal industry

    The international coal industry is now becoming a global industry emerging from a history of production for national purposes and isolated regional markets. The participants in the market are also changing; the oil companies have come and gone and production is now in the hands of specialist mining companies. This has implications for the way the industry is organised. Deregulation in the ...

  • Coal market outlook in China

    Coal is the major primary energy source in China. It is forecast that coal will account for over 60% of the primary energy consumption mix, and the total coal demand will reach 2.3-2.9 billion tons in 2020. However, ensuring the coal supply will be faced with a lot of obstacles in fields such as the degree of detailed exploration of coal reserves, the level of mining technology and mine safety, ...

  • Inquiry Into Coal Seam Gas

    Poorly planned or managed coal seam gas (CSG) exploration or extraction activities pose considerable risks to both groundwater and surface water systems. Key water quality issues, from my own perspective, are listed below. Specific issues may be of greater or lesser significance for particular projects, but all of these issues should be thoroughly and transparently assessed for all proposed ...

  • Competing Coal Ash Proposals

    On May 4, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its long-awaited proposal to manage coal ash – the byproduct of burning coal to generate power. The agency proposed two quite different approaches for regulating coal ash, somewhat to the consternation of critics, who had hoped for more stringent ...
