  • Process analytics support higher yields in biogas plants – Case Study

    The production of biogas by means of the anaerobic, microbial breakdown of organic substances in “biogas plants” is growing in significance, especially against a background of increasingly scarce and expensive fossil fuels. The key energy-generating element is methane. Depending on the baseline conditions, biogas also contains small quantities of water vapor, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), ...

  • Comparison of Impinger and Canister Methods for the Determination of Siloxanes in Air

    Abstract Tliis paper compares canister and impinger methods for the analysis of siloxanes in air by gas chromatography/inass spectrometry (GC/MS). Siloxanes are frequently found in commercial and consume? products such as detergents and cosmetics. Most low molecular weight siloxane compounds volatize quickly into the atmosphere; however, some end up in wastewater or landfills when consumer ...

  • Biomethane production at Ontario wastewater treatment plant

    The City of Hamilton is purifying biogas and injecting it into the grid, while continuing to generate power and recover heat from its CHP system. Hamilton, Ontario, has long been a leader in producing biogas from its sewage and storm water wastes. Half a century ago, the city of 520,000 began processing sludge from its sprawling Woodward Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant through anaerobic ...

  • Mass conversion in bioreactors - Process analytics controls biotechnological reactions – Case Study

    Bioreactors Bioreactors are technical vessels of different design in which biological and chemical substances are converted or produced under controlled conditions. In bioreactors the knowledge about metabolic processes is applied to produce different substances, to generate energy and to degrade or transform pollutants. Bioreactors, also called fermenters, are not ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Taking Fossil Fuels to the Next Level - Standards Underpin Extraction, Processing and Distribution

    To the average person, the oil and gas industry may appear simple — a matter of literally tapping into a natural resource and distributing it to customers. Of course the matter of extraction is rarely simple, and in the case of emergent hydraulic fracturing technology, it is particularly complex and capital-intensive. In fact, the world of petroleum and natural gas extraction, distribution ...

  • The Right Forces · Producing Power from Recycled Organics

    FOR the more than 200 persons attending the BioCycle “Renewable Energy from Organics Recycling” Conference held October 29-31 in Des Moines, Iowa, there was a sense they were part of “a profound revolution that is developing in our entire energy system.” The sessions revealed how timing, commercial systems, our nation’s priorities and research knowledge have coalesced. Recovery of biomass — ...


  • Federal grants support food waste solutions in Connecticut

    Federal grants totaling $100,000 have been designated to help Connecticut meet federal, state, and local efforts to divert food from landfills while helping provide healthy food to the hungry, protecting the environment, and saving money for businesses and consumers. The Center for EcoTechnology, a nonprofit organization focused on food waste, will use a portion of those grants to provide ...

  • Landfills Expand Energy Output

    HIGH fossil fuel prices and growing concern about global climate change are creating favorable conditions for landfill gas energy (LFGE) projects. Notably, endorsement of LFGE by Federal agencies and many states as a form of “green” power has enabled LFGE developers to earn premiums for electricity marketed through green power programs, and to benefit from expanded federal tax credits for ...

  • Preparing for EPA’s mandatory reporting of greenhouse gases rule

    Recent action by the US EPA to finalize the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) Rule means that environmental managers must now seriously examine whether they are fully prepared to address the imminent requirements. This article provides some assistance by summarizing key points regarding the final versus proposed rule, providing clarification on key questions that have arisen since the ...
