  • Mobile Stationary Source Emissions Testing, Coming to a Facility Near You?

    Last week, Antea Group had the unique opportunity to perform a RATA (relative accuracy test audit) of the emissions from a thermal oxidizer at an ethanol production facility located in Minnesota using a state-of-the-art mobile testing laboratory. During this RATA audit, actual stack emissions levels (including NOx, SOx, CO2, CO, O2, flow rate, temperature, velocity and pressure) from the ...

  • Retrofitting diesel engines: reducing the emissions of our ideal power source

    Over the past several years, Avogadro Environmental has been working with a number of clients to develop proactive environmental programs as part of their EPA Performance Track and ISO 14001 management systems.  Many client companies that are proactively implementing measures to reduce their environmental footprint are looking for ideas.  Diesel engine retrofits for off-road stationary and mobile ...

  • Measuring SO2 ship emissions with an ultraviolet imaging camera

    Over the last few years fast-sampling ultraviolet (UV) imaging cameras have been developed for use in measuring SO2 emissions from industrial sources (e.g. power plants; typical emission rates ~ 1–10 kg s−1) and natural sources (e.g. volcanoes; typical emission rates ~ 10–100 kg s−1). Generally, measurements have been made from sources rich in SO2 with high concentrations ...

  • 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 ...

  • Urban Air Quality Management

    ' Poor air quality due to pollution is a serious environmental problem in most urban areas. The greatest burden of pollution is on human health. Urban air quality management requires an integrated approach that (i) identifies the most serious problems and measures that offer cost-effective and feasible solutions across a range of economic sectors and pollution sources including industries, ...

  • Air pollution effects on the activity of antioxidant enzymes in nerium oleander and robinia pseudo acacia plants in Tehran

    Air pollution is one of the most significant environmental concerns in both developed and developing cities. The urban air quality is continuously affected by emissions from both stationary and mobile combustion sources. Mobile sources contribute to the emission of major urban air pollutants including: carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx), particulate matter (PM), ...

  • A Method of Assessing Air Toxics Concentrations in Urban Areas Using Mobile Platform Measurements

    ABSTRACTThe objective of this paper is to demonstrate an approach to characterize the spatial variability in ambient air concentrations using mobile platform measurements. This approach may be useful for air toxics assessments in Environmental Justice applications, epidemiological studies, and environmental health risk assessments. In this study, we developed and applied a method to characterize ...

  • Urgent CAIR needed

    On July 11, 2008, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit vacated (overturned) the US Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR). Adopted in 2005, CAIR was a centerpiece of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) strategy to reduce multiple pollutants from major stationary sources. CAIR was expected to reduce power plant emissions in 28 eastern states and the District of ...

  • Air as Clean as the Driven Snow

    While California is the most populated state in the nation, it is also home to some of America’s most natural and pristine wilderness and recreation areas. One such venue is the Snow Summit Ski Resort in Big Bear Lake.  Situated just over two hours from Los Angeles, Snow Summit is a fullservice winter resort that opened in 1952 and operates an average of 142 days a year. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Thermal Treatment Technologies

    Hot gas decontamination: Hot gas decontamination is a technology still in the pilot-scale of development that can be used for decontamination of explosives-contaminated masonry or metallic structures. The method involves sealing and insulating the structures, heating with hot gas stream to 260 °C (500 °F) for a prescribed period of time, volatilizing the explosive contaminants, and destroying ...

  • The invisible fine dust

    Air is lifeblood. Daily we inhale approximately 15.000 liter. Still, the air contains invisible pollutants, which vary in its composition and concentration depending on the location. Especially the respirable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm (PM 2.5) were considered to be particularly dangerous. According to a current study conducted by the Max Planck Society, ...

  • EPA proposes updates to CISWI rules

    On June 4, 2010, the U.S. EPA proposed updates to the Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources (NSPS) for Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration (CISWI) Units (NSPS Subpart CCCC) and Emission Guidelines (EG) for Existing CISWI Units (EG Subpart DDDD), collectively referred to as the "CISWI Rules." In order to describe the proposed updates to the CISWI Rules, it is necessary ...
