  • Bio-oxidation control of air emissions from panel board production – A new direction

    Biofilters or bio-oxidation systems have been used for control of air emissions, primarily odors, since the 1960’s. Those early uses in the U.S. were largely relegated to odor control, primarily H2S, mercaptans and skatols, from wastewater treatment facilities. The Europeans were more aggressive in applying biofilter systems to various industrial air emissions, again primarily for odor control in ...


  • End-user GHG emissions from energy: Reallocation of emissions from energy industries to end users 2005…-2010

    The objective of this report (1) is to help improve the understanding of past greenhouse gas (GHG) emission trends in the energy sector from the demand or end.user side. To do this, the report develops a methodology to redistribute emissions from energy industries to the final users (by sector) of that energy. This reallocation is done on the basis of Eurostat's energy balances and GHG ...

  • Air emissions from the automobile manufacturing industry a bio-oxidation pilot study of paint emissions control

    Bio•Reaction Industries (BRI) was contacted by Toyota to assess the abatement potential of an engineered bio-oxidation system (biofilter). The proposed intent of the pilot was to evaluate the effectiveness of biofiltration as available alternative to traditional VOC removal technology on an existing 3 stage wheel paint booth. A pilot unit consisting of a biotrickling filter and a separate ...

  • Heating and Cooling in the upcoming EU Renewables Directive

    It is crucial that the future EU Renewables Directive includes effective measures to promote renewable heating and cooling (RES-H). To reach the 20% target by 2020, almost half of the growth in renewables production has to come from RES-H alone. Heating is a primary human need. Supply shortage recently became a credible scenario. While reducing this risk, RES-H can achieve substantial cost ...

  • Tackling remediation emissions

    Organisations commissioning regeneration projects now have the option to substantially reduce the carbon emissions associated with any remediation project, while offsetting the remaining carbon impact of these works, says Joe Teer, operations director of QDS. QDS introduced a carbon neutral remediation (CNR) service earlier this year triggered at this particular time by the fact ...

  • Metal Coating Emission Control

    The use of regenerative thermal oxidizers is expanding into applications where they wouldn’t have been considered years ago, says Mike Scholz As the first generation of oxidizer systems in the industry nears the end of their service life, many canmaking plants face repair or replacement of their existing air pollution control systems. Like many others in the industry, a Silgan canmaking ...

  • `Tips and Tricks` for Water Framework Directive implementation

    People care about water. A recent poll on European attitudes on the environment showed that citizens are increasingly concerned about the pollution of rivers, lakes, groundwater and coastal waters. In 2002, more than 40% of European citizens were ‘very worried’ about the state of freshwater ecosystems. This marked a sharp increase of 10% from 1999. Water protection is one of the European Union ...

  • Carbon Fiber Emission Control Strategies

    Problem Carbon fiber (fibre) and graphite reinforced polymers are materials that have, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use everyday by making them stronger, lighter and more durable. However, the manufacturing process can have serious environmental ramifications and immediate danger to human health if careful consideration is not given to emission control at the ...

  • Extensions to the emission trading system in Spain

    Climate change is the subject of debate these days derived from the Copenhagen Summit, where the major commitments and agreements have been discussed. In any case, the commitment within the EU is strong and clear for the immediate future.

  • Revising IPPC: Incremental Change Rather than a Radical Overhaul of EU Industrial Emissions Policy

    Abstract: The European Commission has published a proposal to revise the IPPC Directive (1996/61, codified as 2008/1). The proposal also incorporates six 'sectoral' industrial emissions Directives as annexes: large combustion plants (2001/80); waste incineration (2000/76); solvent emissions (1999/13); and titanium dioxide (78/176, 82/883 and 92/112). The proposal would only extend the scope of ...
