Along with providing preventive booming and spill response services, our Enviro Techs play a ...

  • Closed Circuit Coolers: Design with winter in mind

    When outside temperatures fall below freezing, water inevitably forms into ice. Open cooling towers can be susceptible to freezing due to their inherent nature of operation. As a result, ice formation becomes a subject of management, not elimination. Fortunately, there are alternative solutions. Closed circuit coolers are used for a multitude of niche applications, but are ideal for evaporative ...

  • Air Emissions/Off-Gas Treatment

    A number of technologies have been widely applied for removal of VOCs from off-gas streams. However, the application of these technologies to off-gases from site remediation may be quite limited. Biofiltration has been widely applied for VOC destruction in Europe and Japan, but it has only recently been used in the United States. Catalytic and thermal oxidation are widely used for the destruction ...

    Purpose This engineering technical letter (ETL) was written to provide guidance for designers to determine appropriate application of Landfill Off-Gas Collection and Treatment Systems, and to properly design and specify these systems. Applicability This ETL applies to all HQUSACE elements, major subordinate commands (MSC) , districts, laboratories, and field ...


  • Liquid waste off-gas treatment - Case Study

    Application Biffa Waste Services operate a major waste disposal site at Kilsyth in Scotland where they handle many types of industrial liquid effluent. This can give rise to a range of emissions from both the tank farm and the road tanker deliveries. In addition, significant NO2 and nitric acid fume releases can arise from process upset conditions. ERG provided an emergency NO2 ...

  • Detailed off-gas measurements for improved modelling of the aeration performance at the WWTP of Eindhoven

    At wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), the aerobic conversion processes in the bioreactor are driven by the presence of dissolved oxygen (DO). Within these conversion processes, the oxygen transfer is a rate limiting step as well as being the largest energy consumer. Despite this high importance, WWTP models often lack detail on the aeration part. An extensive measurement campaign with ...

  • Using Air Strippers for Off-gas Treatment - Case Study

    Two pharmaceutical plants in Puerto Rico used large sequencing batch reactor (SBR) systems to treat their wastewater. The primary treatment was an aerobic bio breakdown of the waste. The were forced to change their treament process because of change in treatment regulations. The new regulations required them to treat off-gas that was coming from the SBRs. They were faced with installing a very ...

  • Synthesis of tetrakis (hydroxymethyl) phosphonium chloride by high-concentration phosphine in industrial off-gas

    With increasing consumption of phosphate rock and acceleration of global phosphate production, the shortage of phosphate resources is increasing with the development and utilization of phosphate. China's Ministry of Land and Resources has classified phosphate as a mineral that cannot meet China's growing demand for phosphate rock in 2010. The phosphorus chemical industry is one of ...

  • Oxygen-induced dynamics of nitrous oxide in water and off-gas during the treatment of digester supernatant

    Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas and of special concern in wastewater treatment. It is formed in biological wastewater treatment under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. A major reason for high N2O emissions is low oxygen concentration during nitrification. In this full-scale study of N2O emissions from a sequencing batch reactor for treating digester ...
