  • 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 ...

    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 ...


  • Case study - Kiln emission control technologies

    Overview A specialty ceramic material manufacturer in the United States operates several custom-built furnaces in their manufacturing process.  Sometimes referred to as kilns, these high-temperature process devices are generally a major source of air pollutants and require an abatement technology to meet environmental regulations with the state or federal agencies.  As is the ...

  • Wet electrostatic precipitators: A preferred technology for emission control

    The basic science behind electrostatic precipitators is as familiar and as simple as static cling. But today, this elemental force has been harnessed to a technology that is helping to remove millions of tons of toxic chemicals from our atmosphere; saving billions of dollars annually in pollution-related physical damage; and averting costly impacts on health and mortality rates for millions of ...

  • Advances in control of PM2.5 and PM2.5 precursors generated by the combustion of pulverised coal

    Particulate matter smaller than 2.5 mm in aerodynamic diametre (PM2.5) from coal-fired boilers is composed of directly emitted (primary) particles and particles formed from precursors (secondary particles). Technologies to reduce emissions of precursors to secondary PM2.5 emitted by coal-fired utility plants include wet and dry flue gas desulphurisation (FGD). Limestone forced ...

  • Case study - RTO: Efficient and reliable styrene control technology

    Problem A producer and supplier of corrosion resistant piping systems was looking to improve the reliability and lower operating expenses of an existing air pollution control system at their facility. During their manufacturing process, centrifugally cast mortar pipe systems are reinforced with a fiberglass polymer. This makes the pipe ideally suited for most corrosive piping applications ...

  • Case study - Fiberglass polymer emissions: RTO control technology

    OVERVIEW A producer and supplier of corrosion resistant piping systems was looking to improve the reliability and lower operating expenses of an existing air pollution control system at their facility. During their manufacturing process, centrifugally cast mortar pipe systems are reinforced with a fiberglass polymer. This makes the pipe ideally suited for most corrosive piping ...

  • Controlling Railroad Smoke: An Historical Perspective on Regulatory, Educational, and Technological Options

    Control of pollutants from mobile sources has been a persistent problem for well over 100 years. While today’s focus is primarily on emissions from the internal combustion engine, before 1960, clean air crusaders considered the coal-burning steam locomotive the mobile source most affecting urban air quality.  The problem of controlling railroad smoke ...

  • Emission Control Strategies and Technologies for the Chemical Processing Industry: An interview with Chris Anguil

    AC: Could you please provide our readers with a brief introduction to the industries that Anguil Environmental works within? CA: Our thermal and catalytic oxidizer systems are applied on any industrial process that is regulated for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) or Nitrogen Oxides (NOX). Some of these industries include chemical ...

  • Thermal Treatment Technologies

    Hot gas decontamination: Hot gas decontamination is a technology still in the pilot-scale of development that can be used for decontamination of explosives-contaminated masonry or metallic structures. The method involves sealing and insulating the structures, heating with hot gas stream to 260 °C (500 °F) for a prescribed period of time, volatilizing the explosive contaminants, and destroying ...

  • NOx Control on a Budget

    National, regional and local regulations to reduce NOx emissions have prompted the development and implementation of a number of NOx control technologies – from selective catalytic reduction and low-NOx burners to overfire air and flue gas recirculation. Induced flue gas recirculation (IFGR), a design derivative of conventional forced flue gas recirculation, has demonstrated NOx reductions as ...

  • Mercury Control Demonstrations

    C1.1 | Halogens and Sulfur in Coals and their Influence on Co-benefit Mercury Capture Bernhard Vosteen | President, Vosteen Consulting Gmbh Not only the range of the coal mercury content itself, but also the range of the native halogen and sulfur contents in coal are of great influence on co-benefit mercury capture, wet and dry. The ...

  • Metal Coating Emission Control

    The use of regenerative thermal oxidizers is expanding into applications where they wouldn’t have been considered years ago, says Mike Scholz As the first generation of oxidizer systems in the industry nears the end of their service life, many canmaking plants face repair or replacement of their existing air pollution control systems. Like many others in the industry, a Silgan canmaking ...
