  • Gas Hydrate Breakdown Unlikely to Cause Massive Greenhouse Gas Release

    The breakdown of methane hydrates due to warming climate is unlikely to lead to massive amounts of methane being released to the atmosphere, according to a recent interpretive review of scientific literature performed by the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Rochester. Methane hydrate, which is also referred to as ...

  • LED Applications for Oil and Gas Refining and Processing

    Oil and gas processing facilities are unsafe due to the existence of hazardous compounds during operations. When addressing such issues, companies in the sector may deploy explosion proof lighting systems to prevent the ignition of sparks created from the electrical equipment. The adoption of LED technology in oil and gas refineries has helped reinforce key safety measures associated with ...

  • 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 ...

  • Saline Pond Multi-Layer Liner System - Case Study

    Gas operation benefits from the conversion of a single-liner system to a double-liner with leak detection monitoring Extensive gas operations near the North Saskatchewan River in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, are understandably closely regulated. To help the client remain well above compliance requirements and expand their leak detection capabilities, Nilex implemented the ...

  • Optimising laboratory environment for successful IVF

    The London Women’s Clinic in Cardiff (LWC Wales) is one of ten clinics within its group which collectively provide expert fertility treatment to families across England and Wales. When it comes to IVF and fertility treatment there is no ‘off-the-shelf’ or ‘one size fits all’ solution and, as such, the medical teams produce a bespoke fertility programme for each and ...

  • What is Indoor Air Quality?

    Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the degree of air purity inside buildings that constitute the usual environment in which people carry out activities (offices, homes, schools, shopping and leisure centres, etc.) Because of increasing urbanisation and our contemporary lifestyle, most people spend a large proportion of their time in these closed environments. The high level of atmospheric ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • A life cycle greenhouse gas assessment of remanufactured refrigeration and air conditioning compressors

    Remanufacturing can importantly reduce the resource intensity and increase the eco-efficiency of product systems by utilising recovered end of life (EOL) parts. A life cycle assessment (LCA) has been carried out to determine the greenhouse gas emissions from the production of a remanufactured compressor vs. a new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) compressor. The remanufacturing consisted of ...

  • Fires at Composting Facilities: Causes and Conditions

    The subject of fires at composting facilities is a bad news/good news situation. The bad news is that fires are more common than we realize. Ask a group of facility operators if they have had to deal with a fire, and the majority will quietly admit they have. The good news is that we don’t realize that fires are fairly common at composting facilities. Most are neither frequent nor destructive ...

  • How sensitive is your treating plant to operating conditions?

    Abstract Normal expectations in operating amine treating plants for acid gas removal is that small changes in operating conditions will result in correspondingly small responses in plant performance. However, such expectations are not always well founded. To establish credibility for the process simulator used in the design of a new LNG plant (ProTreat ), we begin by comparing its mass ...

  • Biotreatment of Odors from the Zimpro Sludge Conditioning Process

    Management of odor emissions generated during thermal sludge conditioning is a well known disadvantage of the “Zimpro” process. Traditional methods of using chemical oxidation and high temperature destruction result in the formation of secondary products, such as chlorine gas, organic halocarbons or nitrogen oxides. In this study, biotrickling filter technology was evaluated at the Villa Hills ...

  • Study of defect behaviour in Ga2O3 nanowires and nano-ribbons under reducing gas annealing conditions: applications to sensing

    The growth of monoclinic Ga2O3 nanowires, nano-ribbons and nano-sheets has been investigated. Results indicate that high quality single crystal nanowires can be grown at 900?C using an Au catalyst, while single crystal nano-ribbons and nano-sheets require no metal catalyst for growth. Since bulk Ga2O3 is a promising material for high temperature gas sensing, Ga2O3 nanowires and nano-ribbons may ...

  • Innovative approach to unforeseen site conditions – case study

    The Crater Resources Quarry 3 Remediation site was a former limestone quarry that was later used as a disposal site for Waste Ammonia Liquor (WAL) generated by the coke making facility at a steel mill. The WAL contained water, ammonia, and small amounts of various hydrocarbons formed during the coking process. Coking operations shut down by the mid 1980's and discharge into the quarry ceased. The ...

  • Hydrogen sulfide gas emission under turbulent conditions – an experimental approach for free-fall drops

    Odor nuisance and sulfide corrosion in sewers carrying septic wastewater are accelerated at points of turbulence such as drops in manholes, but accurate methods or empirical expressions to evaluate the gas stripping rate at those particular sites are still missing. With the aim of improving the current knowledge on the influence of free-fall drops on the release of hydrogen sulfide gas, an ...

  • The Need to Clearly State the Reference Temperature and Pressure Conditions when Reporting Gas Volumes or Volumetric Flow Rates

    In the physical sciences, such as chemistry, the standard temperature and pressure (STP) is a set of conditions for experimental measurements that enables true comparisons between sets of data representing gas volumes. There are many different definitions of standard temperatures and pressures applicable to gas volumes and volumetric flow rates. The differences depend on the organization defining ...

  • In situ gas fuel production during the treatment of textile wastewater at supercritical conditions

    Supercritical water gasification has recently received much attention as a potential alternative to energy conversion methods applied to aqueous/non-aqueous biomass sources, industrial wastes or fossil fuels such as coal because of the unique physical properties of water above its critical conditions (i.e. 374.8 °C and 22.1 MPa). This paper presents the results obtained for the ...
