  • Plasma gasification: Harnessing the power of lightning

    Plasma gasification is both a high-tech solution to the problem of waste management and a source of renewable power. The technology has great potential, but can it move from the fringes to the mainstream? The name "plasma gasification" conjures up images of men in lab coats late at night, investigating a far-flung corner of science that is light years away from commercial readiness. In reality it ...


  • Fly Ash Treatment – Plasma Torches versus Graphite Electrodes

    Background Plasma generating devices have to be designed to tolerate incredibly harsh conditions during operation and in particular very high heat loads and temperatures around the arc. However, when used in the vitrification of highly chlorinated materials the challenge is even greater than in other applications. The combination of high ...

  • Off-Gas Treatment Technologies for Soil Vapor Extraction Systems: State of the Practice

    Untitled Document EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This document provides state-of-the-practice information on off-gas treatment technologies for soil vapor extraction ...

  • Feasibility analysis for biomass in cities, counties and facilities

    The commercial waste industry includes all those who collect waste from the simplest “collect waste and transport to a landfill” to the more complex “collect waste and process into re-usable components and energy.” This article will cover how we can collect material and fuel a clean energy system for our immediate future, while saving clean water and air. ...

  • How power hungry is home entertainment?

    Plasma televisions, video game consoles, and cable set-top boxes find their way into more and more American homes thanks to lower prices and aggressive marketing. While this trend makes for better home entertainment, it strikes a blow to energy conservation efforts.For example, even when just in standby mode, a plasma television consumes nearly $160 of energy/year and a game console over ...

  • Using Venturi Scrubber Technology for Syngas Cleaning

    As part of our nation's program to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, various gasification technologies are being applied. These processes take renewable organic material and, through the application of heat and pressure, convert the materials into syngas for further use. Arguably, in nearly all of these processes, the most critical design aspect is the reliable and efficient removal of ...

  • Detection and measurement of GWGs in semiconductor fab facilities

    Problem Statement Various processes and tools in the modern wafer fab plant produce effluent streams that contain unacceptably high levels of perfluorocarbon GWGs (greenhouse warming gases). These effluent streams are abated by plasma incineration and wet scrubbers and other techniques. It is necessary to measure the destruction removal efficiency (DRE) of the various abatement methods ...

  • Determining the viability of a waste-to-energy plant in Africa

    Nick Mannie, Aurecon’s waste expert, was invited to deliver a keynote presentation at the African Waste Week conference in early September at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in Cape Town, South Africa. Mannie discussed the development and execution of robust feasibility plans to determine the  ...

  • Renewable Energy Companies Continue Their Surge

    Firms make use of Renewable Portfolio Standards, farm-to-fuel investments and availability in lower-cost feedstocks to achieve better results.   THE FARM-TO-FUEL Investment Act was ...

  • Pushing the Limits of Reengineering

    Cutting-edge turbine technology enables more efficient and cleaner power generation. However, the service of advanced gas turbines is challenging—especially when parts need to be replaced. The example of a blade replacement project shows how Sulzer establishes innovative reengineering processes and contributes to a secure energy supply that causes less carbon emission. A Sulzer ...

  • Reaching underground resources

    Accessing critical resources such as geothermal energy and natural gas requires drilling — an expensive, energy-intensive, messy process with today's technology. An MIT team has been looking into a more elegant approach. Instead of grinding rock to bits, they would use a continuous beam of energy to vaporize it and then blow out the tiny particles that form with a high-pressure stream of ...

  • 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 ...
