  • Global solution: Gas and particulate analysis in Cement industry

    Cement plants are increasingly required to install continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). While these represent a significant financial outlay, a range of other factors also need to be considered when selecting a suitable CEMS. To the inexperienced, selecting a suitable CEM can mistakenly be considered as simply ensuring that the applicable national regulations (eg MACT in the USA, ...

  • NH3 Slip Monitoring in Fluidized-bed Catalytic Cracking Using the LDS 6 Gas Analyzer – Case Study

    Fluidized catalytic cracking (FCC) units are used in refineries to convert low value heavy oils into more valuable lighter compounds. Cracking units are sources of emissions of pollutants (e.g. NOx) and must comply with concentration permits set by local or federal authorithies. Modern technologies are applied to reduce the content of pollutants and to monitor certain gas compounds (here: NH3) in ...

  • 20th Annual Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards highlight biomass- and waste-to-resource technologies

    On July 13, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the winners of the 20th Annual Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards (PGCCA) and honored them at a ceremony at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C.

  • Dispersed Phase Inertisation (DPI): A New Technology for the Treatment of Landfill Leachate and Complex Water

    Inertisation is thus far the only technology for the conversion of leachate and contaminated water into an inert product, thereby facilitating handling and disposal in MSW landfills. Introduction One of the most complex aspects of the global management of an MSW landfill or treatment plant is leachate. This liquid comes mainly from the degradation of organic matter, added to other ...

  • Science in Aid of Cleaner Air

    Some 60 million tons per year of nitric oxides are released worldwide to the environment as the consequence of human energy consumption. Efficient technologies have been developed to treat flue gas, and Sulzer with some 50 plants is the technology leader. A recent example is AES Cayuga, a coal-fired power plant in Lansing, NY (USA). The combustion of fossil fuels is often conducted at highest ...


  • The Right Mix for Clean Air

    Reducing air pollution is an increasingly important topic all around the world. Many governments—also in developing countries—set new limits for emissions such as nitrogen oxides in flue gas. Sulzer offers advanced mixing technology for flue gas cleaning. The installation in a large power plant shows that these high-performance mixers can cope with the most difficult requirements. ...

  • Minimizing ammonia consumption in DeNOx plants – Case Study

    Flue gas denitrification Combustion processes result in emissions that can be harmful to the environment, in particular carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitric oxides (NOx), and dust. Therefore, measures are implemented in power stations and other plants comprising combustion processes to reduce emissions. For flue gas denitrification, besides front-end primary ...

  • THE CANSOLV® SYSTEM PROCESS: A NEW PARADIGM FOR SO2 RECOVERY AND RECYCLE

    Significant progress has been made in the last 25 years in the control of emissions resulting from the burning of sulfur bearing fuels and from other industrial processes. The dominant desulfurization technology today is limestone or lime-based scrubbing in various forms. While in general reliable and, in some forms, capable of high SO2 removal efficiency, they produce large quantities of low ...

  • Feasibility of using ionic liquids for carbon dioxide capture

    Ionic liquids (ILs) are organic salts that are liquids in their pure state at ambient conditions. They are frequently referred to as "environmentally benign" due to their immeasurably low vapour pressure. In addition to their more widely studied capabilities as solvents for reactions, several ionic liquids also show potential in other environmentally conscious applications, such as in the capture ...

  • Minimization of Major Air Pollutants from Sewage Sludge Fluid Bed Incinerators

    ABSTRACT Emissions of major air pollutants including carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and mercury (Hg) were studied at two sewage sludge fluidized bed combustion (FBC) plants. Both the North West Bergen (NWB) County Utility Authority and the Little Miami (LM) plants have air pollution control systems (APCS) that are of the wet type. Various operating conditions such as temperature, ...

  • NOx in Non-Utility Industries - Part II - Control options and monitoring methodology

     This the second in a two-part series. Part I, which appeared in our June 2001 issue focuses on air emission origins of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in non-utility industries. Choice of the NOx control technology is dependent on many factors, including regulatory requirements, technical feasibility, cost and public perception. Figure 1, compiled based on publications [1-5], presents a summary of ...


  • A STIEFEL project UTO Uvrier case study

    The waste incineration plant UTO Uvrier is situated in the south western part of Switzerland.
