  • World Water Magazine: Tackling Wastewater Treatment Odors and Hydrogen Sulfide Emissions in the Middle East

    With round-the-year hot temperatures, wastewater treatment facilities in the Middle East have to deal with a wide-range of odor challenges. In addition, high-levels of hydrogen sulfide emissions can be problematic due to excessive heat, and potentially be dangerous to plant employees and neighboring residences. With summertime temperatures often above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, sewage also ...

  • The Rationale for Accelerating Regionally Focused Climate Intervention Research

    Abstract Ten years ago, Paul Crutzen asked whether the time had come to consider undertaking research into intentionally intervening in the climate system so that it might be considered a policy option comparable to reducing emissions for limiting human-induced climate change. Crutzen’s article pointed out how little progress had been made in reducing emissions and suggested that ...

  • MSW Management: Safely Countering the Rise of Landfill Odors

    One of the core challenges of landfill and compost site management is fighting the rise of foul odors. In addition, as communities expand further out from previous areas, they eventually become neighbors to landfills – calling for a comprehensive odor-control approach to countering odor complaints. In fact, compared to other industrial applications such as wastewater treatment and asphalt ...

  • Odour Control at Pesticide Facilities: Eliminating volatile compounds

    Chemical formulation plants are susceptible to emissions of unpleasant and malodorous volatile compounds, a fact which makes the implementation of efficient odour control measures essential. North-western Spain is home to one of the country's oldest industrial sites for the manufacture of phytosanitary products, with some facilities located relatively close to populated areas. Recently, the ...

  • Following the fuel: How portable biomass energy generation may help rural communities

    The forests that surround many of California’s mountain communities tend to have an abundance of woody biomass and a pressing need for thinning to reduce fire danger. Revenue from selling forest residues to biomass power plants could help to support fuel reduction activities, but in many cases the nearest plant is so far away that hauling costs are prohibitive. The remoteness of such ...

  • Landfill pumps for Gas well dewatering - Case Study

    AutoPumps Keep the Power On for Thousands of Florida Homes Waste Management's Springhill Regional Landfill near Campbellton, Florida generates "green" energy by extracting and burning the methane in landfill gas. Its $7 million landfill gas energy (LFGE) plant, with six large Caterpillar engines running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is capable of producing 4.8 million watts of power. ...

  • Biosolids ban struck down

    In 1994, Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts (LACSD) bought a 4,700-acre farm (called Green Acres Farm) in southwest Kern County for the purpose of land applying biosolids from its 11 wastewater treatment plants. LACSD land applied 800 wet tons/day at this site for several years. In 2006, Kern County voters passed Measure E on the ballot with 83 percent approval. This measure banned ...

  • H2S Emissions Control at Geothermal Plants

    The LO-CAT® II process is used to control H2S emissions and reduce odors at geothermal power plants. Geothermal steam, considered to be a clean and environmentally friendly source of energy, is produced when water seeps into high temperature, high pressure formations below the earth's surface. The steam is brought to the surface through production wells and then expanded through a turbine to ...

  • Methane Emissions From Terrestrial Plants

     In a recent issue of Nature Keppler et al. [2006] report the discovery that terrestrial plants emit CH4 under aerobic conditions. Until now it was thought that bacterial decomposition of plant material under anaerobic conditions, such as in wetlands and water flooded rice paddies, is the main process leading to emissions from terrestrial ecosystems. In a first attempt to upscale these ...


  • Low emissions from large plants too

    Type     HOFGAS®- LPM 3000 Performance     3’000 Nm³/h, 15’000 kW Location     Scotland (GB) SituationEvery year, 150’000 tonnes of waste from Edinburgh, Lothian and the Borders Region are brought to the Dunbar landfill site. The waste is transported by rail to the site. In 2002, the UK Environmental Agency ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Experience curves for power plant emission control technologies

    This paper examines past experience in controlling emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from coal-fired electric power plants. In particular, we focus on US and worldwide experience with two major environmental control technologies: flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) systems for SO2 control and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) ...

  • Boise Plants Benefit from Innovative Emissions Control Systems

    Fulfilling a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) abatement agreement, Boise Building Solutions has successfully installed and implemented two innovative emissions control systems at its Elgin, Ore. plywood plant and LaGrande, Ore. particleboard plant, thanks to an alliance group that includes Pro-Environmental, M-E-C, TurboSonic and Prototech. ARTICLE REPRINTED FROM PANEL WORLD MAY 2004. ...


  • 5 Ways Wisconsin Can Reduce Power Plant Emissions

    As the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) moves forward with standards to reduce power plant emissions—which are due to be finalized in June 2015—many states are wondering how they will comply. WRI’s fact sheet series, Power Sector Opportunities for Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions, examines the policies and pathways various states can use to cost-effectively meet or ...

  • The twin cities sludge-to-energy plant reduces greenhouse gas emissions

    ABSTRACTThe majority of Utilities and Agencies in the United States (U.S.) that incinerate sludge treat this practice as a disposal method and do not maximize the recovery of energy available in the sludge and hence, do not contribute to the reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) have used incineration at the Metro Wastewater ...

  • An application of a puff dispersion model on power plant emissions in Yatagan region, Turkey

    The present paper describes the application of the CALMET meteorological model and CALPUFF plume dispersion model to the Yatagan district to study the impact of Yatagan Power Plant emissions on the SO2 levels on December 2000 in the region. Results indicate that SO2 concentrations over the city depend strongly on advected emissions from the power plant and on the ...

  • The Whole Plant Approach to Air Emission Modeling for NESHAP Compliance

    ABSTRACTLong overlooked, the air emissions associated with biological treatment of process wastewaters continue to be further scrutinized and regulated. The common approach is to utilize EPA’s Water9 as a model to present findings and support permitting activities. It is essential when using a model that not only is the facility modeled appropriately, but also that the specific compound ...

  • Thermal design and emissions of duct-burners for combined-cycle and cogenerative plants

    This paper mainly aims at demonstrating that an appropriate thermo-fluid-dynamic design optimisation of duct-burners for combined-cycle and cogenerative plants allows to satisfy restrictive emission limits, while significantly reducing the thermal stresses and the undesired pressure drops. In particular, a detailed discussion on the influence of the TEG composition and of the thermal load, ...
