  • 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 ...

  • LED Applications for Oil and Gas Refining and Processing

  • Develop a `real-time` air emissions monitoring strategy for your facility

    To improve air quality, states and localities are requiring more intense 24/7 monitoring of listed air pollutants from hydrocarbon processing facilities. Affected facilities must develop reliable and accurate environmental data management systems for reporting purposes. In this case history, the BP Texas City site (a refinery and chemicals plant) successfully implemented a real-time environmental ...

  • Managing emissions of active pharmaceutical ingredients from manufacturing facilities: An environmental quality standard approach

    Active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) residues have been found to be widespread in the aquatic environment, albeit in most cases at trace levels, with the route to the environment predominantly being via therapeutic use and subsequent excretion to sewer. Although manufacturing discharges may be a low overall contributor to environmental concentrations, they need to be managed effectively so that ...

  • Strategic Abatement of Emission to Economically Support Development of High Profile Real Estate Adjacent to a Wastewater Reclamation Facility

    ABSTRACTThe Des Moines Wastewater Reclamation Authority operates a 97-million gallon per day regional wastewater reclamation facility (WRF) largely constructed in the mid 1980s to serve the greater Des Moines, Iowa metropolitan area. Originally constructed in a largely rural area, current plans for the area around the WRF establish a need for emissions control to reduce offsite odor impacts, in ...

  • Nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from biotrickling filters used for ammonia removal at livestock facilities

    Recently several manufacturers of nitrifying biotrickling filters for ammonia (NH3) removal at animal houses have started to add a denitrification step to the installation, aiming to reduce the amount of discharge water by conversion of NH3 to nitrogen gas (N2). The aim of this research was to quantify the possible formation of nitrous oxide (N2O), which is a ...

  • Control of VOC emissions from a flexographic printing facility using an industrial biotrickling filter

    The study of an industrial unit of biotrickling filter for the treatment of the exhaust gases of a flexographic facility was investigated over a 2-year period with the objective to meet the volatile organic compound (VOC) regulatory emission limits. Increasing the water flow rate from 2 to 40 m3 h−1 improved the performance of the process, meeting the VOC regulation when 40 m3 h−1 were used. An ...
