  • New Greenhouse Gas Standards

    The D.C. District Court recently upheld the decision allowing EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. This white paper provides you background on the decision, what it means for you, and how to keep your plant compliant. Catalytic Products International will continue to stay abreast of these sweeping changes and we’ll continue to keep you informed. As EPA gears up to begin regulation of ...

  • Follow toxic gas standards for a smoother project

    Toxic gases, such as Hydrogen Sulfide and Sulfur Dioxide, can injure and kill quickly. Therefore, mitigation of these hazards must be fast and sure. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other authorities take detection of these gases very seriously. The American National Standards Institute/ American Petroleum Institute (ANSI/API) and ISA industry standards ...

  • How cities can lead the way toward a low-carbon future

    Cities around the world currently account for two-thirds of global energy consumption. By 2050, some 70 percent of people will live in cities. If cities embark on a low-carbon development path today, global greenhouse gases could be 30 percent lower in 2050 than they are today. These are just a few of the insights highlighted in a recent infographic created by the World Bank. ...

  • U.S. EPA`s Proposed Greenhouse Gas Standards for the Utility Industry - How Powerful Are They?

    A major event in the Climate Change arena occurred on March 27, 2012 when, for the first time, U.S. EPA proposed Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources (NSPS) for emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2).  The proposed standards were specific to new affected fossil fuel-fired electric utility ...

  • Opt for the easy way: Determining glycerol in biodiesel using ion chromatography

    Current US and European standards stipulate gas chromatography to determine the glycerol content in biodiesel. However, this method is both tedious and rather expensive. Metrohm recommends ion chromatography (IC) as a simple, cost-efficient and highly accurate ...

  • EPA Moves Closer to GHG Control

    EPA has put itself on the path toward greenhouse gas regulation, but in Congress, the courts, and the international community, the debate rages on. On Dec. 7, 2009, EPA moved one step closer to imposing the first ever set of enforceable greenhouse gas (GHG) standards on tailpipe emissions from vehicles, and a requirement that large power plants and industrial emitters install best ...

  • Normalisation in Emissions Monitoring – What Does It Mean?

    Emission sources (stack emissions) are found across different industries including power generation, cement production, steel making, energy from waste, chemicals processing, oil and gas refining and food processing. Emission monitoring systems that measure emissions released into the atmosphere are used to demonstrate compliance with environmental regulations. It is preferred, to report gaseous ...

  • Gas analysis implications of the new non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) regulation

    On September 2014 the European Commission proposed a new regulation to harmonise across the EU the emissions limit values (ELV’s) from engines installed in Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM). This new regulation replaces a number of national laws and, with effect from 1 Jan 2017, repeals a complex directive including 15 annexes and amended 8 times since 1997. Implementation timeframe for ...

  • Gas dispersion modelling harmonisation: an industrial viewpoint

    The harmonisation of gas dispersion modelling across Europe requires not only harmonisation of the physics incorporated into different mathematical models but also harmonisation of the way that practitioners actually use these models. This paper highlights the need to define minimum acceptable standards for gas dispersion modelling, especially in the specification of source conditions and ...

  • Adaptive locally constrained genetic algorithm for least-cost water distribution network design

    This paper describes the development of an adaptive locally constrained genetic algorithm (ALCO-GA) and its application to the problem of least cost water distribution network design. Genetic algorithms have been used widely for the optimisation of both theoretical and real-world nonlinear optimisation problems, including water system design and maintenance problems. In this work we propose a ...

  • Energy, economy, environment and sustainable development in the Middle East and North Africa

    In this presentation, we review the present state of energy demand and production in the Middle East and the world. Oil and gas reserves in the ME/NA region and their role in providing energy demand for the world as well as the economy of the region are examined. The future of oil and gas reserves in the region and how long they will last along with existing coal reserves are reviewed. Several ...

  • Case study : VOC analysis in ambient air by FID dectection - Complete system airmOzone

    Ozone concentration has been multiplied by 5 in the last century in the middle latitudes of the northern hemisphere from 10 PPB in 1874 to approximately 50 PPB today. This is an increase of 1.6% per year; the trend is probably higher (2.4% a year) over the last decades. (Chapter 1 of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program - World Climate Research Program) In order to stop this global ...

  • Primary Standard Gas Flow Calibration—The Only Guarantee of Accuracy

    At Sierra, we have a saying: “An instrument’s accuracy is only as good as its calibration.” The accuracy of your mass flow controller (MFC) is essential in assuring the efficiency, performance, and quality of your flow meter. In many cases, if your instrumentation is not calibrated, then a decline in performance is possible due to ...

  • Improvement of olfactometric measurement accuracy and repeatability by optimization of panel selection procedures

    The EN 13725:2003, which standardizes the determination of odour concentration by dynamic olfactometry, fixes the limits for panel selection in terms of individual threshold towards a reference gas (n-butanol in nitrogen) and of standard deviation of the responses. Nonetheless, laboratories have some degrees of freedom in developing their own procedures for panel selection and evaluation. Most ...
