  • Anaerobic Digestion Reduces Microplastics in Sludge

    Anaerobic digestion can help remove microplastics — a large cause of water pollution — during the sewage treatment process Microplastics, or tiny fragments of plastic, include microbeads, the plastic pellets present in thousands of household and personal care products, including toothpaste, cosmetics, and beauty scrubs. They also include fragments from the breakdown of anything in our ...

  • Chlorinated hydrocarbons - Case Study

    Example: Pharmaceutical industry Similar tasks: Chemical industry The Pharmaceutical industry uses different processes to create chlorinated hydrocarbons. In a regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) the chlorinated organic contaminants are destroyed at high temperature. Chlorinated hydrocarbons - among others - are converted into hydrogen chloride which produces a ...

  • Understanding and Monitoring Hydrocarbons in Water

    Untitled Document 1. Introduction Oil contamination continues to be a very hot topic, due largely in part to recent catastrophic events with shipping ...

  • 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 ...

  • Heavy metal & hydrocarbon contaminated sludge

    Solidification of Heavy Metal & Hydrocarbon Contaminated Sewage Sludge Client: North Lanarkshire Council Project Managers: Jacobs Challenge: The former sewage treatment works were decommissioned in the 1970’s. It is thought that during the closure process, demolition material originating from the ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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, ...

  • GC Analyses of Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons

    Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) can be separated by packed column or capillary column gas chromatography. An SPB-5 bonded phase fused silica capillary  column separates the 16 PAHs considered priority pollutants in wastewater by the US Pal SP-301, a liquid crystal stationary phase in packed GC columns, resolves benzo(e)pyrene and benzo(a)pyrene. This publication discusses ...

  • Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence

    Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence are capable of detecting hydrocarbons as low as 5 Parts per Billion and as high as 10,000 Parts per Million depending on the application.  Because only the target hydrocarbons will fluoresce, these monitors have no significant affect due to water turbidity (rust, dirt, gas bubbles, soot, etc.).  Fluorescence monitors provide a measurement ...

  • 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 ...

  • Fast bioremediation of a hydrocarbon contaminated site

    The use of bioremediation has been demonstrated to be a very effective treatment technology for a hydrocarbon contaminated site within a month of starting. In addition to selection and preparation of an appropriate microbial inoculum the other key considerations were effective mixing, addition of suitable nutrients and maintenance of soil moisture levels. Careful management of all these ...
