  • Development and Implementation of an Alternative Emissions Monitoring Program for Carbon Monoxide Compliance for Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit CO Boilers

    This paper presents the results of an alternative emissions monitoring test program for the Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit (FCCU) CO boilers at major oil refinery. Alternative emissions monitoring systems can be used in lieu of other compliance monitoring techniques (e.g., periodic emissions testing, continuous emissions monitoring) to relate monitored operating conditions which might indicate ...

  • Case study - Spindle utilities module

    Business Situation The existing method of tracking utility usage at these industrial laundries was highly manual, unreliable, and time consuming. Total utility consumption from bills was entered into large spreadsheets and analyzed over periods that were often 3 months or more in arrears. The report merely told managers what they already knew—they had overspent on natural gas; ...

  • Case study - Oxidizer energy recovery options

    Overview The mainstream media today is full of allusions to energy awareness and conservation. Just as visible these days are media references to astronomical dollar figures that can boggle the mind. This article does not seek to break out of that mold, but rather to conform to it – as Oxidizer Stack Heat Recovery offers a tremendous opportunity for both energy conservation and ...

  • A Method of Assessing Air Toxics Concentrations in Urban Areas Using Mobile Platform Measurements

    ABSTRACTThe objective of this paper is to demonstrate an approach to characterize the spatial variability in ambient air concentrations using mobile platform measurements. This approach may be useful for air toxics assessments in Environmental Justice applications, epidemiological studies, and environmental health risk assessments. In this study, we developed and applied a method to characterize ...

  • Smart LDAR — more cost-effective?

    On December 19, 2008, EPA issued a final rule establishing a voluntary Alternative Work Practice (AWP) to detect leaks of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) from process equipment (FR Vol. 73, Number 246), thereby providing the regulated community additional flexibility in complying with leak detection and repair (LDAR) requirements. The AWP allows owners or ...

  • Is a background noise survey worth doing? - Case Study

    As a plant owner or designer you will logically try to keep construction costs down wherever possible. So noise control features can easily be sidelined as an “optional extra” to be added later if the need arises. You might also be confident a new industrial plant will comply with all regulations on completion, but that doesn’t mean a future neighbour won’t complain about ...

  • Navigating NSPS subpart Db for boilers: a case study

    Over the past year, Trinity assisted a chemical company with the permitting and installation of a new 220 MMBtu/hr package boiler. The new natural gas-fired boiler replaces coal-fired units that were installed in the 1940s. Navigating through the numerous, and at times conflicting, regulatory requirements applicable to such a unit has been challenging. With careful planning and implementation, ...

  • How has MCERTS impacted CEMS?

    Industrial process operators that produce gas emissions to atmosphere are regulated by the Environment Agency. Monitoring of these emissions ensures that the environment is being properly protected and helps them manage their own impact on the environment. Under the Environmental Permitting Regulations, these sites are required to continually measure emission parameters from their chimney-stacks ...

  • Summarizing the fundamentals of fugitive emission tracking

    Fugitive emission tracking for a number of key industries is now a focus for the United States and a number of other countries. When a hazardous leak occurs it is important to identify and gauge the amount and type of substance emitted. Officials will gain a better understanding of the challenge posed by greenhouse gases, as they affect global warming. When an unexpected leak of a hazardous ...
