  • Innovative emissions monitoring uptake soars

    Firms in the UK’s waste and power sectors are proactively seeking Best Available Techniques for emissions monitoring, according to Enviro Technology. Over recent months there has been a surge in demand for sophisticated equipment, such as monitors of total gaseous mercury. The air quality and emissions monitoring specialist believes that a combination of factors, such as the recast ...

  • Border emissions monitoring program case study

    Upwards of four million trucks enter the U.S. each year through various southern port crossings in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Scientific studies at congested US-Mexico border crossings suggest that cross-border truck emissions are contributing to air pollution problems in border communities. Officials expect the problem to become increasingly severe and widespread when the North ...

  • RSD technology for MBTA bus fleet emissions

    Exhaust emissions from transit buses have long been a concern for air quality officials. Agencies have been investing millions of dollars in advanced and clean fuel technologies to reduce emissions from their bus fleets. Generally, the only information available about the emission characteristics of these vehicles comes from expensive engine- and chassis-dynomometer tests. Relatively little is ...

  • In-situ continuous emissions monitoring & regulatory compliance

    As environmental scrutiny has risen and regulation has tightened in recent years, the importance of having accurate information on the environmental performance of your power plant has increased. After all, if you want to manage something, you need to be able to measure it. The analogy is obvious; you wouldn't start a diet without first investing in a set of scales. So it is with Continuous ...

  • New laser-based dust emission monitoring system

    Abstract A new generation of continuous particulate matter concentration monitoring instruments is presented, covering a measuring range of 0 to 1000 mg/m3. The laser-based scattered light instrument gives an improved stability as well as excellent resolution in the low range. This enables high concentration measurement as well as especially low emission monitoring down to 0.01 mg/m3 with a ...

  • Continuous Emissions Monitoring Equipment – Guidance & Selection

    There has never been such a wide range of analysers and systems available for continuous emissions monitoring as there is today. In the UK there are over 12 manufacturers and distributors offering CEMS (continuous emissions monitoring systems) using a variety of technologies including UV and IR absorption, FTIR, DOAS, chemiluminescence and photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS). The majority of CEMS ...

  • 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 ...

  • Laser gas detector systems for greenhouse gas emissions monitoring

    Two types of portable laser based gas detector for measuring emissions of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from oil and gas operations are described. A scanning open path detector was developed within a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the USEPA. This system scans multiple paths across an area source in rapid succession, enabling calculation ...

  • Air Quality and Emissions Monitoring: What does best practice look like?

    When we turn on the tap, we know that the water coming out should be of a consistently high quality. And we can choose – if we prefer – to drink bottled water instead. This is not so with the air that we breathe. Unlike the water that we drink, we have no guarantee, and in many cases no information, telling us that the air quality in our towns, cities and even rural areas is of an ...

  • N-Tox® prevents activated sludge failure and monitors greenhouse gas emissions

    A new technique for evaluating nitrification efficiency in industrial and municipal activated sludge systems is described that uses direct measurement of dinitrogen oxide, an important greenhouse gas, as an indicator of nitrification failure. Developed at Water Innovate, N-Tox® helps control ammonia levels in treated effluent by providing an early warning of wastewater treatment failure. The ...

  • Case-study - Improving monitoring, reporting and verification of greenhouse gas emissions

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories are used by businesses, governments and members of the public as they provide levels of allowable carbon emissions and details of how emissions can be reduced. Some industrial sectors have high uncertainties in their MRV results which presents a barrier to carbon dioxide reductions. MRV Sector aims to improve and increase the accuracy of monitoring techniques in ...

  • 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 ...

  • Reducing Odor and VOC Emissions

    The Montgomery County Regional Composting Facility (MCRCF) in Silver Spring, Maryland is designed to process 400 wet tons/day of lime amended biosolids from the Blue Plains Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Washington, D.C. Recently, political pressures forced operations to cease at the MCRCF. Although the aerated static pile composting plant’s fate has not been completely decided, its owner, ...
