  • Border emissions monitoring program case study

    Upwards of four million trucks enter the U.S. each year through various southern port crossings in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Scientific studies at congested US-Mexico border crossings suggest that cross-border truck emissions are contributing to air pollution problems in border communities. Officials expect the problem to become increasingly severe and widespread when the North ...

  • 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 ...

  • Warehouse Optimization: Balancing Equipment Performance and Worker Safety Through Emissions Measurements and Air Quality Monitoring

    Successful warehouse functionality is dependent on both maximizing equipment performance and providing a safe and healthy environment for workers that encourages productivity. However, these two factors are often at odds with each other as warehouse equipment such as forklifts, burnishers and delivery trucks emit toxic gases that can have the potential to create poor indoor air quality which ...

  • RSD technology for MBTA bus fleet emissions

    Exhaust emissions from transit buses have long been a concern for air quality officials. Agencies have been investing millions of dollars in advanced and clean fuel technologies to reduce emissions from their bus fleets. Generally, the only information available about the emission characteristics of these vehicles comes from expensive engine- and chassis-dynomometer tests. Relatively little is ...

  • Emissions analyser helps manage power station

    A multiparameter emissions monitor at Thetford power station is being used to demonstrate to the Environment Agency that the plant is performing within the conditions of its environmental permit. However, the data from the analyser, which was supplied by Milton Keynes based Quantitech, also performs a vitally important role in helping to manage the plant. “Individual gas readings are ...
