  • Hydrogen production through chemical looping using NiO/NiAl2O4 as oxygen carrier

    A new autothermal route to produce hydrogen from natural gas via chemical looping technology was investigated. Nowadays, 90% of the worldwide produced hydrogen comes from fossil fuels, the most common process being Steam Methane Reforming (SMR), which produces several kg of CO2 equivalent per kg of hydrogen. In classic SMR technology, most of the greenhouse gases are vented to the atmosphere. ...

  • Legal lookout: meet the GHG rule

    EPA signs final rule requiring greenhouse gas emissions reporting. On Oct. 30, 2009, EPA issued a final rule that requires reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from all sectors of the economy. The final rule applies to fossil fuel suppliers and industrial gas suppliers, direct GHG emitters, and manufacturers of heavy-duty and off-road vehicles and engines. The rule requires only that ...

  • Preparing for EPA’s mandatory reporting of greenhouse gases rule

    Recent action by the US EPA to finalize the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) Rule means that environmental managers must now seriously examine whether they are fully prepared to address the imminent requirements. This article provides some assistance by summarizing key points regarding the final versus proposed rule, providing clarification on key questions that have arisen since the ...

  • Status of black carbon monitoring in ambient air in Europe

    Black carbon (BC) is increasingly discussed in science and environmental policy areas as an example of an air pollutant that affects both human health and contributes to climate change (e.g. WHO, 2012; UNEP/WMO, 2011; Bond et al., 2013; IPCC, 2013). In order to be able to make comparable measurements of BC in ambient air and to relate BC monitoring to health impacts and climate change it is ...

  • Calculating the cost savings for refrigerant gas leak detection

    The real benefits of refrigerant gas leak detection Following on from the last article, we feel that it’s natural to then discuss some of the practical reasons (cost savings) that will encourage the industry to take action and reduce their F-Gas emissions. Who requires refrigerant leak detection under the F-Gas proposals? There are a ...

  • Black Carbon – the elephant in the room!

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, in this article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, will demonstrate that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Air Monitors has supplied most of the UK's ambient monitoring network, but Jim will explain why the ...

  • 2013: a ‘perfect storm’ in air quality

    As many countries fail to meet air quality targets and large numbers of premature deaths still result from air pollution, Jim Mills, a particulate monitoring specialist and Managing Director of Air Monitors, explains why 2013 will be a pivotal year. In November 2011 Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment, expressed his determination to make 2013 the ‘Year of ...

  • We’re headed to Paris. But where did we come from?

    A look at past UN climate negotiations offers valuable context for this year’s pivotal talks. 2015 is shaping up to be a pivotal year with respect to climate change as growing concern about impacts converges with a critical stage in the decades-long process of shaping an international agreement to change our trajectory. To help us all prepare for the potentially game-changing 21st ...

  • Biofilter Applications in the Coatings Industry.

    Soaring energy costs and the high cost of ‘end-of-pipe’ pollution control equipment has caused companies and regulatory agencies to re-evaluate ‘unconventional’ means of achieving VOC and HAP emissions control. The coatings industry is an excellent candidate for alternative, unconventional controls, as VOC and HAP reductions have not been as strident as has been the case in many other industries. ...
