  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • Put energy into emission control projects

    Many companies feel pressured to spend the least amount possible to meet environmental regulations, primarily because compliance isn’t a profit generating endeavor. What some environmental and compliance managers fail to realize is that emission control equipment can quickly become a profit decreasing endeavor with this penny wise-pound foolish approach. With mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) ...

  • An Introduction to the Topic: Controlling Mercury Emissions from Coal-Fired Power Plants

    Untitled Document Mercury is a hazardous air pollutant (HAP) that circulates around the globe for a year before depositing back to ...

  • Permit Compliance Monitoring for the Power Generation Industry

    The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990 authorized EPA to develop regulations requiring facilities to monitor the adequacy of emission control equipment and plant operations. This paper discusses the various methods available for coal-fired power plants and gas turbine installations to demonstrate a reasonable assurance of facility compliance with emission limitations, and ensure that control ...

  • 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 ...

  • Wet electrostatic precipitators: A preferred technology for emission control

    The basic science behind electrostatic precipitators is as familiar and as simple as static cling. But today, this elemental force has been harnessed to a technology that is helping to remove millions of tons of toxic chemicals from our atmosphere; saving billions of dollars annually in pollution-related physical damage; and averting costly impacts on health and mortality rates for millions of ...

  • Controlling Air Pollutants case study

    While it's not always easy to determine what's required for compliance, new technologies can help achieve air-pollution control Selecting air-pollution control equipment can be tricky. It's not only difficult to determine which pollutants must be controlled, but also which type of equipment will best control them to required levels for any given process or facility because there is no ...

  • A mixed-integer non-linear programming model for CO2 emission reduction in the power generation sector

    Electricity generation is considered to be one of the main contributing sources to the air pollution problem. It is, therefore, important to develop and implement effective control strategies to prevent the expected abrupt increase in emissions from this sector. Any control strategy must be suitable for local implementation and must also be economically viable. The main objective of this paper is ...

  • Costs and health benefits of reducing emissions from power stations in Europe

    Current levels of emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from power plants generate very significant health and environmental damage across Europe. This study demonstrates that by applying up-to-date emission control technologies, these emissions could come down drastically. By estimating the costs and health benefits of further emission reductions, this study highlights the ...

  • FTIR Emissions Analyser helps manage UK Power Station

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

  • Retrofitting diesel engines: reducing the emissions of our ideal power source

    Over the past several years, Avogadro Environmental has been working with a number of clients to develop proactive environmental programs as part of their EPA Performance Track and ISO 14001 management systems.  Many client companies that are proactively implementing measures to reduce their environmental footprint are looking for ideas.  Diesel engine retrofits for off-road stationary and mobile ...

  • Case study - Carbon fibre: furnace & oven emission control

    Overview A carbon fiber company in China was faced with the challenge of selecting an emission control system for a new pilot line at their specialty fiber products facility. The line would include furnaces and three ovens, both of which would emit Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ammonia (NH3) and lethal amounts of Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN).   Action ...

  • Air Pollution Control: Ready for the 21st Century

    The textile industry is plagued by air pollution problems which must be resolved. In particular, smoke and odor arising in the process require abatement. Air pollution control technology is available today which will serve the textile industry well into the 21st century. The nature of the problem The major air pollution problem in the textile industry occurs during the finishing stages, ...


  • Case study - WESPs: Securing a cleaner future for power-generating facilities

    This article explains why wet electrostatic precipitators remain a viable technology for dealing with today's increasingly stringent compliance issues. Despite recent, recession-related volatility in both power generation and consumption, industry analysts expect a resumption of long-term growth trends as continued global demand for energy — in both developed and developing nations ...
