  • Global solution: Gas and particulate analysis in Cement industry

    Cement plants are increasingly required to install continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). While these represent a significant financial outlay, a range of other factors also need to be considered when selecting a suitable CEMS. To the inexperienced, selecting a suitable CEM can mistakenly be considered as simply ensuring that the applicable national regulations (eg MACT in the USA, ...

  • Mercury Analysis

    Characteristics of Mercury What is Mercury? Mercury is a naturally occurring silver-colored metallic element noted for its occurrence as a liquid at room temperature and toxic to living organisms. This silvery, opaque liquid metal is very dense, yet has a high surface tension that causes it to form tiny perfect spheres in the pores of the rocks it is found in. It is ...

  • MAXUM II - Perfect on-line gasoline analysis using the MAXUM II process gas chromatograph – Case Study

    Gasoline is a petroleum-derived liquid and primarily used as fuel in combustion engines. The analysis of gasoline for its chemical composition is extremely important as e. g. the concentration of individual hydrocarbons determines the octane number as well as the emission characteristics of gasoline. Therefore, great efforts are made to serve producers of gasoline with an efficient tool for ...

  • Analytik Jena AG: State of the Art - Fully Automated and Matrix-Optimized Gas Analysis with multi EA 5000

    The analysis of gaseous matrices is still a real challenge. No matrix type is as versatile in its behavior and the requirements for sample feed and combustion process. This makes it difficult to gain quick, precise, and reliable results. Thanks to the outstanding flexibility of the application-optimized gas sampling systems, the elemental analyzer multi EA 5000 can analyze liquefied gases (LPG), ...

  • 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 ...

  • Feasibility analysis for biomass in cities, counties and facilities

    The commercial waste industry includes all those who collect waste from the simplest “collect waste and transport to a landfill” to the more complex “collect waste and process into re-usable components and energy.” This article will cover how we can collect material and fuel a clean energy system for our immediate future, while saving clean water and air. ...
