  • Why high temperature combustion of landfill gas?

    Due to the accumulation of knowledge and the tightening of environmental law, the landfill technology has increasingly become concerned with the management of trace compounds in landfill gas. With landfill gas, contamination is through sulphur, chlorine, fluorine, halogenated hydrocarbons and heavy metals. Other trace elements such as volatile organic compounds (VOC), impose environmental ...

  • The landfill gas collection, utilisation and surplus gas combustion acting in unison

    In landfill gas utilisation the basic task of the control system is to harmonise three completely independent processes. On the one hand, there is the gas production of the landfill which is inconstant. (From a price point of view, hardly worthwhile to store the gas in a gasometer) On the other side the independent gas utilisation process, which orientates itself to the requirement of the ...

  • CFD modelling of sampling locations for early detection of spontaneous combustion in long–wall gob areas

    In this study, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling was conducted to optimise gas sampling locations for the early detection of spontaneous heating in longwall gob areas. Initial simulations were carried out to predict carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations at various regulators in the gob using a bleeder ventilation system. Measured CO concentration values at these regulators were then used ...

  • Process analytics optimizes crude gas processing for the production of fine chemicals at Lonza – Case Study

    Fine chemicals are used as active ingredients or additives in the pharmaceutical and food & beverages industries, as well as in agriculture. The cracking of raw materials such as light virgin naphtha or liquefied gas results in intermediate products (ethylene, hydrogen, methane, CO2). At the end of the process chain, these can provide highly pure materials such as niacin (vitamin B3) or ...

  • 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), ...

  • Maximizing Energy Recovery through Digester Gas Management System Enhancement

    ABSTRACTAdvanced anaerobic digestion practices and maximum energy recovery call for a digester gas system that reliably allows for complete biogas collection and utilization. This paper will describe the planning, design, and construction of a new digester gas management system at the East Bay Municipal Utility District’s (District) Main Wastewater Treatment Plant. The need for an upgraded ...

  • Explosion Proof UV Lights for Commercial and Industrial HVAC systems

    In the past decade, more and more people have been installing UV lights in their HVAC systems to eradicate harmful bacteria. A timely study from Duke University Medical Center has proven the effectiveness of using UVC bands to disinfect a myriad of dangerous microbes, including drug-resistant bacteria, such as Acinetobacter, Clostridium difficile and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). During ...

  • Hydrogen production from formic acid solution by modified TiO2 and titanate nanotubes in a two-step system under visible light irradiation

    Hydrogen gas is one of the most promising renewable energy sources, and the final product of hydrogen combustion is nothing but water. However, it is still a big challenge to produce hydrogen and store it. Many studies have been conducted into produce hydrogen from water using photocatalysts. Z-scheme photocatalysis is a two-photocatalyst system that comprises a hydrogen catalyst and an oxygen ...

  • A STIEFEL project KVA Linthgebiet Niederurnen case study

    The waste incineration plant KVA Linthgebiet is situated in Switzerland. The plant disposes of a total of 120’000 tons of waste each year from 240‘000 inhabitants in the surrounding area. Due to the thermal recovery, it produces annually 84 GWhour of electrical energy and therefore saves 250’000 litres of fuel oil by providing energy to a district heating system. Background ...

  • Thermal recycling of spent grains – residue becomes resources

    Introduction – the History of Beer The origin of beer was a happy coincidence: In the fourth millennium BC, the Sumarians discovered the fermentation process. The country of the Sumarians, called Mesopotamia, was located between the Euphrates and the Tigris. The Sumarians wanted to help an ill person swallow some bread, so and they soaked a piece in water. They simply forgot the bread in ...
