  • Railroad Tie Facility Wastewater Treatment of Aromatic Hydrocarbons

    Facility Backgorund Amerities South built a new state-of the-art facility economically benefiting the surrounding Hope AR communities. The process goal of this project was the efficient removal of biomass and other constituents (both suspended and dissolved) from a rail road tie plant wastewater stream. The wastewater consists primarily of TSS, BOD and FOG and other polynuclear ...

  • What is Indoor Air Quality?

    Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the degree of air purity inside buildings that constitute the usual environment in which people carry out activities (offices, homes, schools, shopping and leisure centres, etc.) Because of increasing urbanisation and our contemporary lifestyle, most people spend a large proportion of their time in these closed environments. The high level of atmospheric ...

  • Secondary Oil Containment at US Army Corps of Engineers - Big Bend Dam - Case Study

    Big Bend Dam takes its name from the unique bend in the Missouri River seven miles upstream from the dam. Construction of the dam began in 1959 and the embankment was completed in July 1963. Big Bend dam is 95 feet (29 m) high and 10,570 feet (3,220 m) in length. Power generation began at the facility in 1964 and the entire complex was completed by 1966. The hydroelectric plant generates ...

  • Salinity and miniDOT

    The miniDOT and other optical dissolved oxygen sensors measure oxygen within a special plastic material that has the property of changing its fluorescence in response to the amount of oxygen present. Oxygen arrives within this material by diffusion from the surrounding environment, which is usually water.  The miniDOT determines oxygen concentration in water dissolved oxygen  by ...

  • Choosing the Right H2S Analyzer for Your Specific Application

    Not all H2S analyzers are created equal, and certain H2S analyzers work better on different applications than they do others. Significant amounts of time, money and headaches can be saved by learning about the different H2S analyzer principles of operation and choosing the correct analyzer for your ...

  • HDPE - A Hydrocarbon Resistant Membrane?

    Most brownfield redevelopment and environmental protection applications require the use of a hydrocarbon resistant membrane.  However, each membrane material will vary in its ability to resist chemical attack and its effectiveness as a barrier to permeation.  It is essential that a barrier material prevents the migration of contaminants, thereby not harming the surrounding environment ...

  • Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Wastewater

    A wastewater treatment company established and operates an oil/water separation facility on a multi-acre industrial site in Northern California. Its purpose is to recycle oil products for profit while at the same time provide a wastewater treatment service for industries based in Northern California. The oily water mixes processed by the company are obtained from tanker bilges, contaminated ...

  • Innovative Project for Hydrocarbons Contamination

    Baioni Crushing Plants, leader in the aggregate crushing sector has been operating for 40 years, have recently developed equipment and methods for environmental control. Several plants have already been supplied to third parties, now Baioni have full know-how of the technology and can ensure correct conception of the line based on the specifications of the soil to reclaim and can provide ...

  • Monitoring Hydrocarbons in Bilge Water

    The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as garbage may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited ...

  • Hydrocarbon Monitoring Technologies

    The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has increased the interest in technology in oil spills, cleanups and remediation. The Gulf of Mexico oil spill is expected to present challenges to every person in the region whose livelihood or operations depend on access to clean water and air.While the obvious presence of crude oil floating on the surface appears to have diminished, the concern that the bulk ...

  • Are Fines Reducing Your Hydrocarbon Production?

    Although choosing frac sand can reduce completions design cost initially, there can be short-term and long-term issues: Proppant flowback, proppant embedment, and decreased fracture conductivity, in addition to fines, can negatively affect hydrocarbon production. What are fines? Fines are generated by crushing of proppant, by erosion of sand on the fracture face during treatment, ...

  • Hydrocarbon evaporative emissions & control for automotives

    Even the cleanest and most efficient vehicle on the market today still pollutes the air and otherwise damages the environment. Motor vehicles emit several noxious pollutants which vehicle emissions standards are designed to regulate. Vehicles generally emit Hydrocarbons (HC), Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Fine airborne particulate matter (PM) as pollutants that require control. ...

  • Zeolite catalysed light hydrocarbon conversions

    Availability of light alkane containing feedstocks in petroleum industry demands the catalysts and conversion processes. Two zeolites, ZSM-5 and Mordenite were used for the preparation of a series of catalysts for the conversion of pure light hydrocarbons and industrial feedstocks. Cracking and aromatisation activity of the H-ZSM-5 catalysts varied with the catalyst properties and feed ...
