  • Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts: Siloxane Removal

    Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts have long been involved with recovering landfill and digester gas for energy to power turbines and internal combustion engines. Their experience led them to identify performance issues associated with these gases. One particular challenge is siloxanes. Cyclic organic silicon monomers (siloxanes) used in the manufacture of personal hygiene, health care and ...

  • Case study - Keeping ethanol production green

    OVERVIEW Originally published in Pollution Engineering Magazine. In an effort to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels, there has been a major push towards alternatives. Ethanol has been at the forefront of this movement because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles and its production has a positive net energy balance. The homegrown fuel also ...

  • Is it better to burn or bury waste for clean electricity generation?

    The use of municipal solid waste (MSW) to generate electricity through landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) and waste-to-energy (WTE)projectsrepresentsroughly14%ofU.S.nonhydrorenewable electricity generation. Although various aspects of LFGTE and WTE have been analyzed in the literature, this paper is the first to present a comprehensive set of life-cycle emission factors per unit of electricity ...

  • Taking Fossil Fuels to the Next Level - Standards Underpin Extraction, Processing and Distribution

    To the average person, the oil and gas industry may appear simple — a matter of literally tapping into a natural resource and distributing it to customers. Of course the matter of extraction is rarely simple, and in the case of emergent hydraulic fracturing technology, it is particularly complex and capital-intensive. In fact, the world of petroleum and natural gas extraction, distribution ...

  • The Chemical Aspect of NOx Scrubbing

    With the passage of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, many chemical and metal industries and utility producers will now be required to further limit the amount of NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) produced. NOx is a precursor to ozone in the atmosphere, and is believed to be a major contributor to acidic deposition (acid rain). Formation of ozone: NOx is produced in a variety of ...

  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...

  • Integrated Solutions - Organics Management, Clean Water and Renewable Energy

    California’s Chino Basin Organics Management Strategy uses creative ways to protect its watershed while expanding composting and digesting capacity for manure and biosolids. CLEAN WATER is a vital commodity in the semiarid environment within the coastal plain of southern California. About two-thirds of the water supply is imported from often great distances and at significant expense to ...
