  • Designing Pollution Prevention into the Process

    Consider the following recent examples of pollution prevention in chemical process plants: An Adiponitrile plant in Orange, Texas installed an inexpensive solenoid valve on the line supplying process water to flush the seals of process pumps used in intermittent service. The solenoid, which is connected to the pump control system, shuts off flush water when the pumps are not running. As a result, ...

  • Why are Canadians such bad polluters?

    According to Statistics Canada’s 2007/2008 edition of Human Activity and the Environment, Canadians are among the worst greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters per capita in the world. Although businesses are starting to improve their performance, the average Canadian is doing very little to reduce their own emissions according to StatsCan. Human activity and the environment (HAE) is Statistics Canada’s ...

  • Indicators of Pollution Management

    'The definition and selection of environmental performance indicators is still at an early stage but the use of indicators is increasing, both for the tracking of trends in pollution and other environmental issues at a large scale (national or regional) and also for the monitoring of Bank projects. This note provides a framework to assist in the selection of appropriate indicators for pollution ...


  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • Why Water Scale is Dangerous for Equipment

    Mineral scale occurs wherever circulating water exists, and it forms very fast (generally less than 3 weeks). Even a very thin layer, it will also cause insulation, make equipment inefficient, increase cost, and in some serious cases, it will shut down the whole system and even cause explosion. These problems have already existed in different fields, and are becoming worse and worse. ...
