  • 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 ...

  • 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    The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued draft guidance on ‘Air pollution - outdoor air quality and health.’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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Innovative Dryer and Emission Control System at a Particleboard Installation

    In 1989, Bohemia Corporation installed a new primary drying system and also air pollution control equipment at their particleboard plant in Eugene, Oregon. The drying system was composed of a Westec America triple-pass rotary drum dryer fired by a Coen sanderdust burner. The primary and secondary particulate collectors installed were also of a Westec America design. The tertiary air pollution ...

  • 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) ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Hydrogen Sulfide Continuous Emission Monitoring of Odor Control Systems

    ABSTRACT This paper discusses the use of the Sycamore Continuous Emissions Monitor (CEM) for monitoring Hydrogen Sulfide Gas concentrations within odor control systems. The CEM is configurable as a single, two or three point system and can measure from 5 ppb to 2 PPM, 0.1 – 20 PPM, and 0 – 200 PPM and is designed for monitoring of scrubbers, carbon adsorbers, biofilters and biotrickling ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Installs Covers & Scrubber System to Control Odor Emissions

    Twenty-five miles west of Dayton, Ohio is the county seat for Preble county - Eaton, Ohio, population 8,000. As the only city in this largely rural county, Eaton finds itself the focus of residential and commercial development transforming it into a bedroom community for Dayton as well as Cincinnati 50 miles to the south. Participating in this transformation is the Eaton Wastewater Treatment ...


  • Electrostatic ReCyclone® systems: Modelling and application to emission control from biomass boilers

    The recent development of efficient electrostatic ReCyclone® systems allows their application to biomass boilers for strict legal limit compliance. The purpose of this paper is to present a model to predict in a more realistic way the collection efficiency of a gas cyclone with an electrostatic enhanced recirculation system. These systems consist in an optimized reverse-flow cyclone (col- ...

  • Boise Plants Benefit from Innovative Emissions Control Systems

    Fulfilling a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) abatement agreement, Boise Building Solutions has successfully installed and implemented two innovative emissions control systems at its Elgin, Ore. plywood plant and LaGrande, Ore. particleboard plant, thanks to an alliance group that includes Pro-Environmental, M-E-C, TurboSonic and Prototech. ARTICLE REPRINTED FROM PANEL WORLD MAY 2004. ...


  • Case History - Sale of By-product HCl Covers Cost of Emission-Control System

    Problem: Some of the specialty chemical processes at a major chemical manufacturer's plant result in considerable HCl loading in the off-gas. The HCl must be removed before the off-gas can be discharged to the atmosphere. Production of saleable by-product HCl solution was an important goal when looking for a high-efficiency HCl removal system. The company wanted to achieve a very low ...


  • Hurricane and ReCyclone® systems for emission control and value added product recovery

    The development of high efficiency Hurricane and ReCyclone® systems allows their application either for emission control or value-added product recovery. The purpose of this paper is to present not only the performance of these systems, but also a model to predict in a more realistic way the collection efficiency of a gas cyclone with or without partial recirculation. Some ...

  • 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 ...
