  • 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 ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...

  • A Chemical Dynamics Model for CAH Remediation with Polylactate Esters.

    ABSTRACT: The polylactate esters of sorbitol, xylitol and glycerol are a class of new chemical compounds that slowly release lactic acid into groundwater. The lactic acid is biotransformed into pyruvic acid and subsequently into acetic acid releasing hydrogen in both steps. The hydrogen is used by naturally occurring dechlorinating bacteria to reduce PCE to ethene by way of TCE, DCE and VC. A ...

  • Estonia eager to teach world about oil shale

    AUVERE, Estonia (AP) — Home to the creators of Skype and the first country to use online voting, Estonia relishes its image as a technological pioneer. But the tiny East European country's most far-reaching economic achievement could come from how it has learned to squeeze oil from a rock. About 200 feet (60 meters) below ground in northeastern Estonia, very close to the Russian border, ...

  • Erosion and Sediment Control: Navigating NPDES Regulations, the SWPPP, and Techniques for Compliance

    Erosion and Sedimentation: Why Are They a Problem? The US Environmental Protection Agency lists sediment as the single most common pollutant in rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs. With all the potentially harmful chemicals and substances in the world, it seems odd to many people that sediment—dirt, essentially—is singled out as the major culprit. Yet these particles of ...
