  • Efficient aeration system boosts energy savings

    A new efficient aeration system saves the Ontario, Ore., wastewater treatment facility $47,000 annually in energy costs. Besides giving this community a financial boost, the new system netted additional equipment cost savings by cutting aeration horsepower by more than half at the plant. The environmentally conscious city, located in the Oregon/Idaho border area, is meeting all of its effluent ...

  • Advantages of Using Flow Meters to Reduce Pressure Drop

    Plant operators rely on plant air pressures to maintain properly working equipment and systems. One of the most common problems affecting processing plants that utilize compressed air systems is the ability to maintain reliable air pressure throughout the distribution system. Insufficient air pressures may be due to undersized distribution piping, but it’s more commonly found that the cause ...

  • On the application of miniSoDAR technology to wind energy

    Introduction In the late 1990’s wind turbines with nacelle heights exceeding 60 meters were introduced to the wind energy community. Initially, wind prospecting and siting studies continued to use 50-meter wind towers and extrapolate the measurement to the nacelle heights. It was quickly determined that this approach was not sufficient for the placement of these tall turbines. The next ...

  • Should energy managers worry about energy data security?

  • Energy Conservation: Westpac Banking Corporation

    The concerted effort of employees was the key to the success of Westpac’s energy conservation program which, in 1994, reduced electricity bills by $2.54 million, more than recouping the initial outlay of $1.8 million in only the first year. In 1995, the bank outlayed another $1.1 million but saved an additional $1.5 million, increasing recurrent annual savings to $4 million. The program revolved ...


  • Evolution of integrated solid waste management systems enhanced with municipal utilities and green energy production

    Much has changed over the past 40 years in the advancement of solid waste management. Early solid waste drivers focused on the top-down tiered approach promoted by EPA, which embraced a hierarchy of integrated waste management practices. These practices promote the following methods (in order of preference) to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover value from municipal wastes: Source reduction and ...

  • Harnessing the Sun`s Energy for Water and Space Heating

    The pace of solar energy development is accelerating as the installation of rooftop solar water heaters takes off. Unlike solar photovoltaic (PV) panels that convert solar radiation into electricity, these "solar thermal collectors" use the sun's energy to heat water, space, or both. China had an estimated 168 million square meters (1.8 billion square feet) of rooftop solar thermal collectors ...

  • Is green energy our new plastics industry?

    If The Graduate were written today, Mr. McGuire’s career tip to Benjamin probably would have been “green,” rather than “plastics.” But it’s likely Benjamin would have responded in the same quizzical way: “Just how do you mean that, sir?” It was difficult to envision the vast number of new products, businesses and careers that would emerge from the plastics industry following World War II. The ...

  • Wastewater Plant Relies on Thermal Flow Meter for Co-Gen Power Gas Blending Process
