  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • Top 5 incineration myth busters

    There are a lot of myths and misconceptions out there when it comes to incinerators and with many people feeling uncertain of what they actually need when in a position to purchase a incinerator, it is sometimes difficult to tell fact from fiction.  Every day we have multiple phone calls from existing and potential customers asking the same ...

  • LED Applications for Oil and Gas Refining and Processing

    Oil and gas processing facilities are unsafe due to the existence of hazardous compounds during operations. When addressing such issues, companies in the sector may deploy explosion proof lighting systems to prevent the ignition of sparks created from the electrical equipment. The adoption of LED technology in oil and gas refineries has helped reinforce key safety measures associated with ...

  • Low-volatile coal combustion technologies in Vietnam: issues and strategies

    Vietnam has planned to install a number of coal-fired power plants with unit's capacity of up to 600 MW. Present experience shows that available low volatile anthracite coal is difficult to burn in the PC fired boilers. In this paper, the CFB combustion technology is proposed based on the experiences of coal-fired power plants around the world used similar coal characteristics. Later, a ...

  • Size reduction of substitute combustibles (RDF)

    The new pilot installation of SITA Wiebe GmbH, Bielefeld/Germany, processes highly calorific commercial and industrial waste to become quality-assured substitute combustibles for cement industry and/or power plants. Basic items of this ultra-modern processing installation are two one-shaft size reduction machines of type WLK 30 Super-Jumbo of WEIMA Maschinenbau GmbH, Ilsfeld. The total output of ...


  • Catalytic combustion of fuels and existing ways for its implementation

    The new technology of flameless high-temperature combustion of fuel on the basis of catalytic method has the advantages consisting of the ecological cleanliess of process, the growth of volume thermal stress of furnace space and the reduction of specific quantity of metal and boiler cost. Application of catalytic boiler plants allows to bring in the maximum produced heat to the customers. Thus, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Pragmatic Efficiency Limits for Internal Combustion Engines

    This article gives an overview of the thermodynamic principles demonstrating that the maximum efficiency theoretically possible with a hydrocarbon fueled internal combustion engine is one hundred percent. From this basis the focus turns to articulating irreversibilities that naturally occur within the processes of converting the chemical energy in the fuel into shaft work. These losses are ...

  • Trace elements - controlling emissions from coal combustion

    International and national legislation is increasingly being applied to trace element emissions. Although emissions have decreased for a variety of reasons in many developed countries, continued use of coal and more successful control strategies in other sectors mean that coal combustion is still a relatively important source of some trace elements, especially mercury. Existing pollution control ...

  • Overview and status of post-combustion NOx control: SNCR, SCR and hybrid technologies

    Requirements for reduced NOx emissions have required that emissions reduction technologies move beyond combustion controls alone. Post combustion NOx control technologies that are being applied to coalfired utility boilers include selective non catalytic reduction (SNCR), selective catalytic reduction (SCR), and combined SNCR/SCR systems (hybrid SNCR/SCR). This ...

  • A diesel compound HCCI combustion engine based on injection strategy control

    This paper presents a compound combustion technology of "Premixed Combustion" and "Lean Diffusion Combustion" for the purpose of realising the concept of homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) combustion in a DI diesel engine. The premixed combustion is achieved by the technology of multi-pulse fuel injection. The start of pulse injection, injection-pulse number, injection period of each ...

  • Detailed chemical modelling of a flameless combustion turbine for pollution prevention

    Flameless combustion has been acknowledged as one of the most interesting combustion technologies to meet both the targets of high process efficiency and low pollutant emissions. The present investigation is concerned with the application of the flameless combustion mode to an adiabatic combustor, typically used in gas turbine engines. Detailed chemical kinetics calculations, by means of a ...

  • Remediation of Abandoned Coal Mines Using Coal Combustion Products

    A slurry of mine water and coal combustion fluidized bed ash (FBA) was injected into an abandoned coal mine in Eastern Oklahoma in July 1997. Oil-field technology was used to inject 1.8 Gg (418 tons) of FBA through five wells in 15 hours. Alkaline minerals in the FBA neutralized acidity and imparted alkalinity to the mine water. Thus, this remediation method uses the waste from an industrial ...


  • Vortex structure and heat transfer in a diffusion combustion field with circulating flow

    A numerical study was performed to examine the vortical structures for combusting flow from a two-dimensional bluff-body slot burner in the transitional recirculating flow. The numerical results support the flow visualisation results for C3H8 combustion by Chin and Tankin [Chin, L.P. and Tankin, R.S. (1991) 'Vortical structures in a 2-d vertical bluff-body burner', Combustion Science and ...
