  • Life Among The Heavy Metals

    Authors in scientific and applied works interpret the meaning of the concept "heavy metals" in different ways. Today, they include more than 40 chemical elements with an atomic mass of more than 50 atomic units. An important role in the determination of heavy metals is played by the following conditions: their high toxicity in relatively low concentrations, and the ability to bioaccumulation. ...

  • The Future of Nuclear Power Plants

    With the blast of the French nuclear power plant a few weeks ago, safety of nuclear power plant designs has fallen under more scrutiny. Although according to sources the blast took place in the turbine hall and no nuclear leak was found, this event has brought more attention to improved design and operation standards. Following the incident earlier this month Toshiba, a Japanese ...

  • Demkolec ICGCC power plant

    Evaporator/Crystallizer meets stringent zero-discharge waste requirements In 1989, Demkolec B.V. was founded by the Dutch Power Authority N.V., S.E.P., to execute the first integrated coal gasification combined cycle (ICGCC) power plant. For the gasification process, Demkolec selected Shell. The plant, the world’s largest, is located next to the existing Maascentrale power station ...

  • Turning waste into power

    Economic, social and environmental factors dictate the necessity to manage waste to a new level. Wastewater plants, landfills, farms and food plants are all the owners of biomass that can be digested to produce biogas and turned into power. Biogas can be burned directly in boilers for heat recovery and used for manufacturing, heating or cooling; this is the simplest method of direct biogas ...

  • Determination and use of scaling factors for waste characterization in nuclear power plants

    Disposal of radioactive waste requires knowledge of its radioactivity content in terms of the concentrations of specific radionuclides. This information is used by the repository operator and/or regulator to track radionuclide inventories and concentrations, which are generally limited by the repository safety assessment and resulting operating licence. It is normally the responsibility of waste ...

  • Solving waste oil management and removal problems in power generating plants

    If your plant is like most, it is doing a good job of preventing oily water waste and waste oils from escaping into the environment. But at what cost? As labor resources dwindle, operating and maintaining drainage systems, oil separators, and sometimes inadequate oil removal equipment is expensive. Paying higher than needed costs for waste oil disposal, filtration and water treatment due to these ...

  • Captive power plant efficiency for Africa

    Power distribution networks across Africa are notoriously unreliable. Frequent power interruptions can be enormously costly for many of the continent’s factories. Not only do power outages disrupt production batches, they can also damage or reduce the life of important plant components such as kilns. This too has a knock-on effect on wider the country’s gross domestic product – ...
