  • How conditions affect cookies and air pollution control solutions

    Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite treats. Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, and, of course, chocolate chips. Combine the ingredients together and you get a delicious cookie. Somehow, using the same ingredients the cookies do not always turn out the same. Sometimes they are thinner and crispier. Other times, they are soft and chewy. After watching cooking shows, I have come to ...

  • Water management solutions minimize flood damage

    Human societies around the world have used timber as a building material for thousands of years. As wood is the only significant biological building material we are naturally inclined to believe that using wood in construction is good for the environment. As a matter of fact the environmental benefits of using timber are not straightforward: although it is a natural product, a large amount of ...

  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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) ...

  • California`s Achievements in Mobile Source Emissions Control

    Untitled Document Since its formation in 1967, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has successfully launched numerous emissions reduction programs in the state. These ...

  • Monitoring and control of CO emissions in parking structures

    Until recent years most parking garage owners and managers did not realize the detrimental effects that carbon monoxide emissions from motor vehicles have on the air quality inside parking garages. With increasing awareness of indoor air quality, astute parking garage owners and managers place great importance on the reduction of CO in parking garages. Ventilation systems are a must for today's ...

  • 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 ...
