  • Scope Of A Environmental Site Assessment

    Environmental remediation can be a grueling process for commercial propery owenrs, especialliy if it's unexpected. Environmental remediation is often prompted by the results of an ESA (Environmental Site Assessment).  An ESA has become a standard component of many actions related to commerical property, such as purchasing the site, applying for a land-use permit, and more. ...

  • 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 ...

  • How to make top-down and bottom-up sustainability converge

    Fits and starts are all too common in the sustainability world. One year you have budget for initiatives; the next you don’t. Management hails cost savings on individual projects, but they miss the big picture and fail to link progress across departmental boundaries. Bottom-up progress and top-down directives pass each other like proverbial ships in the night. But it doesn’t have to ...

  • Transformational adaptation – when climate change means business as usual is no longer possible

    1. A lesson from the past Deep in the central Sahara, a crumbling mud-brick town sits at the edge of a dry lake bed. This is the medieval town of Germa, in southwestern Libya, one of a string of settlements along the Wadi al-Ajal, a valley defined by the towering dunes of the Ubari Sand Sea to the north, and the black cliffs of the Messak Settafet plateau to the south. Germa is romantic ...

  • Examining the benefits of HDPE geomembrane

    Comparing various geomembranes for your next geosynthetic application? Don’t overlook high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembrane. HDPE has been in use for decades and during that time a number of studies have been conducted to test its longevity and ability to meet environmental sustainability project requirements. Here, we explore some of those studies to examine the benefits of HDPE ...

  • Top 5 incineration myth busters

    There are a lot of myths and misconceptions out there when it comes to incinerators and with many people feeling uncertain of what they actually need when in a position to purchase a incinerator, it is sometimes difficult to tell fact from fiction.  Every day we have multiple phone calls from existing and potential customers asking the same ...

  • What Is Zero Liquid Discharge and How Does It Work?

    Not every industrial facility that produces wastewater will require zero liquid discharge (ZLD). It is usually looked to as a last resort because it can be a complex process that requires a high initial investment. If a facility is located on a site that has severe water scarcity issues and/or astronomical discharge fees, it might be ...

  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • Strategic management of water resources important to Ontario craft breweries

    The vast majority of craft breweries in Ontario understand the need to improve their water and resource management performance to save money, protect the environment and enhance community relations. This was a major finding of a survey of Ontario craft breweries conducted in the fall of 2016 that found 97 per cent of respondents agree that better water management is important or very important to ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Does your facility need Zero Liquid Discharge Technology?

    If your industrial facility discharges its waste into deep wells, streams, sewers to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), and/or other waterways, it is likely there are some types of regulations on discharging the waste. With an increasing push toward environmental protection, many industrial facilities and effluent regulators are strengthening strategies to reduce industrial process waste. ...

  • The Environmental Assessment Process

    The Pollution Prevention and Abatement Handbook is intended to be used principally as input to the World Bank Group’s Environmental Assessment (EA) processes. This note outlines the key features of the EA procedure for World Bank projects. The IFC and MIGA follow the same overall policies but have somewhat different environmental analyses and review procedures (for details contact IFC’s or MIGA’s ...

  • Environmental pollution generated from process industries in Bangladesh

    The sources of environmental pollution in process industries in Bangladesh are discussed. Total pollution load into environment (i.e., into air, water and land) generated from process industries is determined and presented using industrial pollution projection system (IPPS) developed by the World Bank. Most polluting industries in Bangladesh are identified and ranked. The projection of this ...

  • Simultaneous treatment of environmental and financial risk in process design

    In this paper, we propose a new measure for environmental risk and discuss a way of considering it simultaneously with financial risk. Instead of using single numbers to define environmental risk, we propose to use the cumulative probability of emissions, similarly to the cumulative distributions of profit used for financial risk. We also propose to use a risk surface as a generalisation of the ...

  • Integration of environmental issues in the firm: learning processes and coordination

    This paper considers the extent to which the organisational structure of the firm influences the perception and the integration of environmental problems. Environmental economists who have been concerned for many decades with market failures, and more recently with regulation failures, still commonly assume that firms operate efficiently. It is our contention that there is a third institution ...

  • Environmental toxicity and radioactivity assessment of a titanium processing residue with potential for environmental use

    Thorough examination of the physico‐chemical characteristics of a Ti processing residue was undertaken including mineralogical, geochemical, and radiochemical characterisation, and an investigation of the environmental toxicity of softwater leachate generated from the residue. Concentrations of most metals measured in the leachate were low; thus, the residue is unlikely to leach high levels of ...

  • The process and mechanism of urban environmental change: an evolutionary view

    This paper discusses how an evolutionary viewpoint can contribute to the understanding of the processes and mechanisms of urban environmental change. There are four major components in the urban environmental evolution concept: (a) cities can be viewed as complex systems that are subject to constant change, which constitutes a dynamic evolutionary process; (b) urban environmental profiles of ...

  • Environmentally Friendly Recycling Process for Plastics and Rubber Recovery

     Abstract A quantized converter of the potential energy of a fluid or a free-flowing mass located in a natural or an artificial storage, which should always be situated at a higher level than the aforementioned converter in the accepted geodesic coordinate system. In contrast to the known converters, such as the water runner (turbine), operating in continuous regime and transforming ...
