  • 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 ...

  • MSW Management: Safely Countering the Rise of Landfill Odors

    One of the core challenges of landfill and compost site management is fighting the rise of foul odors. In addition, as communities expand further out from previous areas, they eventually become neighbors to landfills – calling for a comprehensive odor-control approach to countering odor complaints. In fact, compared to other industrial applications such as wastewater treatment and asphalt ...

  • What is Indoor Air Quality and How Can You Improve It?

    For the longest time, air quality was meant to refer to the quality of air circulating outdoors. However, indoor air or the air found inside and around homes and office buildings is just as important to pay attention to. Improving indoor air quality should be a priority for everyone.  What is Indoor Air Quality? Indoor air quality is the quality of air found circulating ...

  • The ‘ins and outs’ of air quality monitoring

    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued draft guidance on ‘Air pollution - outdoor air quality and health.’ In the following article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors Ltd, explains why there will need to be more funding for monitoring if the mitigation measures mentioned in the guidance are to be implemented effectively. Jim also ...

  • Effective control of fugitive emissions

    Are you Building a brand new process and want to get through the permit process quickly? Looking for ways to further reduce emissions? Under an order from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to further reduce emissions? With EPA continually pressuring industry to reduce emissions, control of fugitives is increasingly important to your overall emissions ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Control

    Most of the time, people think about Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions with carbon dioxide, which is the most common of the GHGs. While fairly typical, carbon dioxide isn’t the only GHG U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates.  Since EPA has begun regulating GHG emissions under its Clean Air Act authority, sources of emissions from others may require add-on air pollution ...

  • Overview of Emission Control Technologies

    Chapter 8. Emission Control Technology 8.4 Thermal Oxidation 8.4.1 INTRODUCTION The objective of this section is to present various VOC thermal oxidation technologies, their strength and weaknesses and the elements required to determine what is the preferred technology for a given application. In 1970 the environmental authorities started to identify various industries which had ...

  • 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 ...

  • Panelboard emission control: An historical perspective

    Sometimes the best view of the future can be seen from the past. That's why we've written this paper. We believe that an understanding of the history of emission controls in the panelboard industry will help everyone understand how this industry got to where it is and what the future holds. This account focuses on the evolution of technology devoted to the control of air pollution emissions from ...

  • Carbon Fiber Emission Control Strategies

    Problem Carbon fiber (fibre) and graphite reinforced polymers are materials that have, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use everyday by making them stronger, lighter and more durable. However, the manufacturing process can have serious environmental ramifications and immediate danger to human health if careful consideration is not given to emission control at the ...

  • EPA Increases Ammonia Emissions Control

    Concern about ammonia emissions in the air and the water continues to grow, both officially and unofficially. As U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) moves to further reduce ammonia concentrations in surface waters, common water treatment methods transform what had been a water pollution problem into an air pollution issue. Earlier this year, EPA released its draft Integrated Risk ...

  • Methods for the control of oil vapour emissions

    There are many oil vapours to discharge from oil containers into the atmosphere in oil operations (such as storage and loading). Two basic concepts are discussed regarding the control of oil vapour emission (OVE). The first is to invent active methods to restrain the OVE. The second is to develop passive tail–end remediation technologies to control the released vapour. Oil vapour recovery ...

  • H2S Emissions Control at Geothermal Plants

    The LO-CAT® II process is used to control H2S emissions and reduce odors at geothermal power plants. Geothermal steam, considered to be a clean and environmentally friendly source of energy, is produced when water seeps into high temperature, high pressure formations below the earth's surface. The steam is brought to the surface through production wells and then expanded through a turbine to ...

  • Hydrocarbon evaporative emissions & control for automotives

    Even the cleanest and most efficient vehicle on the market today still pollutes the air and otherwise damages the environment. Motor vehicles emit several noxious pollutants which vehicle emissions standards are designed to regulate. Vehicles generally emit Hydrocarbons (HC), Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Fine airborne particulate matter (PM) as pollutants that require control. ...

  • Put energy into emission control projects

    Many companies feel pressured to spend the least amount possible to meet environmental regulations, primarily because compliance isn’t a profit generating endeavor. What some environmental and compliance managers fail to realize is that emission control equipment can quickly become a profit decreasing endeavor with this penny wise-pound foolish approach. With mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) ...

  • 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 ...

  • Economic damage control for greenhouse gas emissions

    Future emissions of trace gases are intrinsically linked to economic growth and abatement policies, which in turn, are governed by expectations of greenhouse damages. Trace gas indices that depend upon future emissions can be calculated either on the basis of emissions scenarios, such as those devised by the IPCC, or using optimal control techniques where the trade-off between damages and ...

  • Controlling H2S Emissions from Landfill Gas

    A major US waste handling company operates a large landfill in Florida, and in 1992, when Hurricane Andrew struck southern Florida, the landfill saw a huge increase in the amount of C&D waste. Shortly after this, the levels of H2S started dramatically rising. This company evaluated several technologies for the removal of H2S, which was estimated to be as high as 5000 ppmv, with up to 2-3 tons/ ...
