  • Emerging Models for Nitrogen Removal in Treatment Wetlands

    Engineering textbooks tell a simple story about nitrification and denitrification. Classic nitrification-denitrification theory begins with the bacterial genera Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter performing ammonia and nitrite oxidation, respectively. Then facultative or obligate anaerobic bacteria denitrify by oxidizing organic carbon with nitrate. Recent advances in environmental microbiology have ...

  • Case No : 601: Reducing NOx emissions from Nirtic Acid Manufacturing Plants with NOx Abatement or NSCR

    NOx Abatement is a Non-Selective Catalytic Reduction (NSCR) technology that has a long and proven track record for controlling NOx emissions from nitric acid manufacturing plants. It can be used to alter the NO to NO2 balance (decolourization) or to eliminate NOx through catalytic reaction with a fuel as a reductant. ...

  • Nature’s Own - Biofiltration process offers promise of (near) energy-free pollution abatement

    A filter could be described as any substance through which liquid is passed to remove suspended impurities. Although a “biofilter” is actually not a filter, “biofiltration” is on the threshold of finding a market as a compliance solution for air pollution regulations after a number of false starts. Biofilters have long been used as a means for reducing objectionable odors in Germany, the ...


  • Integrated assessment of Nitrogen losses from agriculture in EU-27 using Miterra-Europe

    Received for publication February 29, 2008. The high N inputs to agricultural systems in many regions in 27 member states of the European Union (EU-27) result in N leaching to groundwater and surface water and emissions of ammonia (NH3), nitrous oxide (N2O), nitric oxide (NO), and dinitrogen (N2) to the atmosphere. Measures taken to decreasing these emissions often focus at one specific ...

  • Effects of acidic depositions on living organisms

    The effects of acidic depositions and sulphur and nitrogen gaseous concentrations on living organisms are mostly of a chronic nature. Effects occur at the individual, population and ecosystem level and affect both structural and functional attributes. Knowledge of the relationship between dose and effect (response) enables critical loads of depositions and critical levels of concentrations to be ...

  • Collaboration with the EPA

    The EPA and many clients with NOx compliance challenges are excited about Know-NOx technology. Know-NOx participation in research, testing, and problem resolution has earned favorable recognition with many local EPA districts.  The PRDD/Know-NOx technology appears to be the best available option for ambient temperature NOx abatement compliance with Part 50.11 of the National Primary & ...

  • Air quality and ancillary benefits of climate change policies

    Untitled Document This report analyses projected changes in European air quality up to 2030. It explores the possible benefits of climate policies on air quality and the costs of air ...

  • The Greening of Carbon Fibre

    Carbon fiber is a material that has, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use every day by making them stronger, lighter and more durable.  Experts estimate that the specialty material is twice as stiff as steel and five times stronger, per unit of weight.   It is made from organic polymers which consist of long strings of molecules held together by carbon atoms.  The ...

  • Case study - Kiln emission control technologies

    Overview A specialty ceramic material manufacturer in the United States operates several custom-built furnaces in their manufacturing process.  Sometimes referred to as kilns, these high-temperature process devices are generally a major source of air pollutants and require an abatement technology to meet environmental regulations with the state or federal agencies.  As is the ...

  • The selective catalytic reduction of NO with propane over Ni loaded on H-USY in the presence of excess oxygen

    The abatement of NO with propane in the presence of excess oxygen has been investigated on several kinds of commercial USY (Ultra Stable Y zeolite) in the Na-form (Na-USY) and H-form (H-USY) or wet impregnated to various extents with Ni ions (Ni/USY) catalysts. Experimental results indicated that Ni/H-USY loaded with 15% Ni showed comparatively better catalytic activity for Selective Catalytic ...

  • Biotreatment of Odors from the Zimpro Sludge Conditioning Process

    Management of odor emissions generated during thermal sludge conditioning is a well known disadvantage of the “Zimpro” process. Traditional methods of using chemical oxidation and high temperature destruction result in the formation of secondary products, such as chlorine gas, organic halocarbons or nitrogen oxides. In this study, biotrickling filter technology was evaluated at the Villa Hills ...

  • Emission Control Strategies and Technologies for the Chemical Processing Industry: An interview with Chris Anguil

    AC: Could you please provide our readers with a brief introduction to the industries that Anguil Environmental works within? CA: Our thermal and catalytic oxidizer systems are applied on any industrial process that is regulated for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) or Nitrogen Oxides (NOX). Some of these industries include chemical ...

  • Smelter gas cleaning one vessel from the quench to the drying tower

    Base metals such as zinc, lead and copper are all found in nature bound with sulphur as sulphite minerals: sphalerite (ZnS), galena (PbS), several copper minerals, silver (found as acanthite Ag2S), and, along with other precious metals. Processing of the metals invariably leads to sulphur dioxide (SO2) formation. Other metal processing, such as aluminum from bauxite ore [Al(OH)3] which contains ...

  • Case study - Amine tail gas treatment

    COVERING YOUR TAIL GAS The discovery of new shale formations throughout the world and the development of new drilling technologies have increased natural gas production and prompted government agencies to instigate tighter air-pollutioncontrol regulations on processing operations. Unfortunately, meeting environmental regulations is not a profit-generating endeavor. Simply put, the time ...

  • Air pollution from electricity-generating large combustion plants

    The study was initiated in the context of the review of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive. This report presents the results of a study that assesses the theoretical potential to reduce air emissions of SO2 and NOX that might have occurred had the best available techniques (BAT) and associated emission levels (AELs), as described in the large combustion plant ...

  • Case study - Carbon fibre: furnace & oven emission control

    Overview A carbon fiber company in China was faced with the challenge of selecting an emission control system for a new pilot line at their specialty fiber products facility. The line would include furnaces and three ovens, both of which would emit Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ammonia (NH3) and lethal amounts of Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN).   Action ...

  • Least-Cost Approaches to Reducing Acid Emissions

    ' The costs of meeting sulfur emission targets can be high. It is essential, therefore, that countries adopt policies which (a) minimize the net economic and social costs of reducing emissions to the agreed target levels, and (b) maximize the overlap between measures designed to reduce acidifying emissions and those addressing other forms of air pollution. This note discusses alternative ...

  • The Trouble with Asbestos Disposal

    Hailed as a miracle mineral because of its superior fire resistance and tensile strength, asbestos was installed abundantly into our built environment for over 200 years. However, once it was established that this undeniably useful resource was a dangerous carcinogen, Australia and many other countries enacted strict regulations for handling asbestos and asbestos containing material (ACM). There ...
