  • NOx in Non-Utility Industries - Part I NOx in Non-Utility Industries - Part I - Air emission origins, best control solutions and monitoring methodology for nitrogen oxides

     Problems with reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) are widespread in the general process industries. These industries, together with medium size utility and power generators contribute about 15 percent of global NOx emissions. The emission sources addressed include various heaters employed in chemical and petrochemical plants, nitric and sulfuric acid plants, glass furnaces, iron and steel mills, ...


  • Cement Manufacturing - Balancing Growth with Air Quality Requirements

    In most areas of the U.S., it appears that the recession is a bad memory and the signs of recovery are all around us. As described by the Portland Cement Association (PCA) on its website[1], “following the strongest cement consumption gains in seven (7) years in 2012, cement consumption growth will continue in 2013 with a 6.2% increase.” PCA continues to explain that “the ...

  • An ambient indoor air environment is vital to ensure a safe and healthy workplace

    Indoor air quality (IAQ) relates to a number of environmental factors inside a building that can impinge on the health, comfort, or work performance of the building’s occupants. Monitoring IAQ is vital because it is estimated that the average person spends 90% of their time breathing “indoor air”. Poor IAQ is a contributing factor to both short and long-term health issues, these ...

  • NOx in Non-Utility Industries - Part II - Control options and monitoring methodology

     This the second in a two-part series. Part I, which appeared in our June 2001 issue focuses on air emission origins of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in non-utility industries. Choice of the NOx control technology is dependent on many factors, including regulatory requirements, technical feasibility, cost and public perception. Figure 1, compiled based on publications [1-5], presents a summary of ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs in Ground Water, Surface Water and Leachate

    It may be necessary to know other subsurface information to provide remediation of VOCs in the ground water. Treatability studies to characterize the biodegradability may be needed for any biodegradation technology. Treatability studies are usually necessary to ensure that the contaminated ground water can be treated effectively at the design flow. A subsurface geologic characterization would be ...

    Example: Production of bio-ethanol Similar tasks: Dryers, Fibre board industry The production of bio-ethanol - fermentation, distillation, pelleting and drying - generates odorous and humid waste gas. Upstream lamellar demisters reduce both drop formation - causing lower VOC destruction efficiency - and solid matters. The regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) ...

  • New boiler MACT and affiliated rules proposed

    EPA proposed three related rules (with final rules expected by December 16, 2010), intended to reduce the emission of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters as well as commercial and industrial solid waste incinerators. Simultaneously, it also proposed a definition of solid waste that could potentially affect some units currently ...
