  • Energy recovery from gas compressors

    With the development of natural gas recompression plants, linked to the opening of the global gas market, which means increased exchanges and transportation between production and consumption areas, the number of energy recovery projects on this type of installation is ...

  • Gas injection to increase recovery from the Bakken formation

    The Bakken formation, in the Williston Basin, has tremendous oil reserves estimated to be in the hundreds of billions of barrels. During the last decade, the Bakken has been rapidly developed with advances in horizontal drilling and improved multi–stage hydraulic fracturing. The primary recovery factor, however, has remained very low, around 5%–10% due in part to the extremely low permeability. ...

  • EPA mandates proper refrigerant gas recovery processes

    New EPA regulations require facilities that use air conditioning and refrigeration equipment to have a refrigerant recovery plan in place. The plan is needed to make sure that any harmful gases that might leak are captured. Refrigerant gases contain hydrochlorofluorocarbons, known to cause severe damage to the ozone layer and to promote global warming. A comprehensive plan is now in place to ...

  • Replacing of mechanical compressors by gas ejectors in flare gas recovery systems

    One of the main concerns of humankind in this century is the global warming induced by the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. A promising process for controlling the atmospheric CO2 level is prevention of combustion in flares causing high losses of raw material and energy that could generate more desired products. In the present work, a flare gas ...

  • Liberating contaminants for easy recovery

    The number one challenge associated with most site remediation designs and methodologies is that 90-95 per cent of all environmental contaminants are present in an adsorbed phase onto soil and bedrock surfaces within both saturated and unsaturated zones. Contaminants, including hydrocarbons (LNAPL), chlorinates (DNAPL) and heavy metals, are sorbed onto the substrates and so have reduced mobility ...

  • Heat recovery from wastewater

    Heat recovery from gray water is particularly important in water-intensive industries such as pulp and paper plants, dairies and breweries. Rather than flushing used water down the drain, consider whether a heat exchanging system can help you put that energy to work in your process again. Most plant operators arc aware of the need to save money and reduce the environmental impact of their plant ...

  • Optimization of a Sulfur Recovery Unit

    Prior to Suncor’s purchase of the Spirit River facility, little attention was given to the LO-CAT unit. In general, over injecting chemicals into a LO-CAT unit will not result in operating problems, just higher than required operating costs. Consequently, in remote gas plants such as Spirit River, it is sometimes difficult to convince operators to change operating conditions if the unit is not ...

  • VaporRemed helped in recovery of pets

    We recently converted our oil boiler to gas and the heating crew could not remove the half-full, 250-gallon oil tank until one week later. Hence, we had an open fuel oil tank (the pipes were removed) and strong oil fumes inside our home. As a result, our dog and cat became ill within a few hours. Upon receiving and spraying the VaporRemed, the fumes quickly disappeared and the animals recovered. ...

  • H2S Oxidation and Sulfur Recovery

    Lubrizol’s facility in LeHarve, France produces a lube oil additive via a batch reaction that uses elemental sulfur as a reactant and produces H2S as a byproduct. Lubrizol selected Gas Technology Products LO-CAT® II Hydrogen Sulfide Oxidation Process to sweeten H2S emissions and recover sulfur. The LO-CAT II system was chosen for its ability to handle the process variation in H2S ...

  • Enhanced liquid recovery by carbon dioxide sequestration in gas/condensate reservoirs

    CO2 sequestration in a depleted gas/condensate reservoir could be a viable option due to the economic benefits associated with the enhanced liquid recovery. According to previous laboratory investigations, CO2 may be superior to methane (CH4) or nitrogen (N2) ...

  • Power Positive Resource Recovery

    Using laws of thermodynamic analysis to evaluate the energy and power characteristics of wastewater and beneficial uses of biogas offers greater insight into best business practices and what is achievable. Growing numbers of waste-water treatment plants (WWTP) are striving to produce more power onsite. In recent years, there’s even been a race among WWTP operators to see who can ...

  • Maximizing Energy Recovery through Digester Gas Management System Enhancement

    ABSTRACTAdvanced anaerobic digestion practices and maximum energy recovery call for a digester gas system that reliably allows for complete biogas collection and utilization. This paper will describe the planning, design, and construction of a new digester gas management system at the East Bay Municipal Utility District’s (District) Main Wastewater Treatment Plant. The need for an upgraded ...

  • Energy recovery from biogas purification

    Energy recovery from biogas is becoming more common, but the processes are hampered with the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Biogas is a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) and is often contaminated with toxic quantities of H2S. Sources of biogas are: municipal landfills that produce landfill gas (LFG), wastewater treatment plants, industrial plants, and large scale livestock farms. ...

  • Refinery remediation: fuel recovery and recycling

    Introduction The site is a former refinery that occupied approximately 64 acres of land in West Texas. Refinery operations produced all grades of gasoline, tractor fuels, diesel, distillate products, and fuel oils and operated between 1939 and 1954. As a result of past waste management practices, releases to soils and ultimately ground water occurred, resulting in the formation of a ...
