  • A quick guide to oil analysis for engine test applications

    Reliability testing is a very important component of new engine development. Engineers need to fully understand and chart the engine lifetime performance under a variety of conditions before mass production may be considered. Many important performance data parameters are collected in real time through the many different types of sensors that are connected to the engine in the test cell and oil ...

  • Sources of particulate matter: emission profile of biomass burning

    Biomass burning is an important source of atmospheric Particulate Matter (PM) in Brazil: the burning of forests in the northwest and of sugar cane plantations in the southeast are important examples. The objective of this work is the measurement of the PM emission profile of burning of sugar cane and other characteristic vegetative burning in the region of Sao Carlos-SP/Brazil. Samples of PM10 ...

  • Sources of PCDDs/PCDFs In Cement Kiln Emissions

    Abstract This paper presents data on the source of PCDDs/PCDFs in cement plant stack emissions, demonstrating that these emissions are not necessarily all created by the process. The data potentially demonstrates that some of the PCDDs/PCDFs in the emissions are pre-existing dioxins and furans that are vaporized out of the kiln raw feed. This calls into question the assumption that PCDD/PCDF ...


  • California`s Achievements in Mobile Source Emissions Control

    Untitled Document Since its formation in 1967, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has successfully launched numerous emissions reduction programs in the state. These ...

  • Sensitivity of AERMOD in Modeling Fugitive Dust Emission Sources

    Dispersion modelers have long faced challenges estimating ambient pollutant concentrations caused by releases from “fugitive” sources of particulate matter, such as paved and unpaved roadways, raw material storage piles, outdoor material processing operations, agricultural activities, or windblown dust in general. Fugitive emissions are commonly defined as those that could not ...

  • Acoustic emission source localisation on bone using multiple regression

    A regression source location algorithm is developed to locate microcracks in bovine bone samples. Bone samples measuring 60 mm long, 22 mm wide and 5.5 mm thick were harvested from bovine femora. Artificial acoustic emission sources were created on the bone samples. The known location of these acoustic emission sources and the recorded arrival times at four acoustic emission sensors were used to ...

  • Effect of carbon sources on nitrous oxide emission in a modified Ludzak Ettinger process

    Effect of methanol and glycerol on nitrous oxide (N2O) emission in two laboratory-scale modified Ludzak Ettinger (MLE) processes was investigated during three distinct periods: dissolved oxygen (DO) control by intermittent aeration with a DO controller, and high and low aeration rates. N2O consumption rate in an anoxic tank and aeration mode influenced N2O emission rates from ...

  • Studies of Emissions from Anthropogenic and Natural Dust Sources in the Western United States

    Dust is a significant component of visibility degradation in the western United States. As implied by the national goal defined in the Regional Haze Rule (RHR),1 only visibility impairments from man-made pollution must be prevented and/or remedied. However, dust sources, particularly fugitive dust sources, can result from both man-made and natural conditions. Historically, particulate matter (PM) ...

  • Performance of AERMOD vs. CALPUFF on Fugitive Emission Sources in the Nearfield

    Abstract On November 9, 2006, the AMS/U.S. EPA Regulatory Model (AERMOD) replaced the Industrial Source Complex (ISC) model as the U.S. EPA-approved regulatory model for analyses in the nearfield (less than 50 kilometers from a site). The CALPUFF modeling system, another U.S. EPA-approved model typically regarded as a long-range transport model, can also be utilized in the nearfield on a ...

  • Characterisation for some emission sources in CMB calculation for Mae Moh area, Thailand

    Particulate samples of agricultural waste burning, straw burning, forest leaf burning, heavy duty truck emission, paved road dust, soil, agricultural soil, coal, electrostatic precipitator ash, and emission from stack power plant were collected from the Mae Moh area. Chemical compositions of sampling filters were analysed to determine the particulate matter source profiles. The analysis included ...

  • Function of receptor sensitivity to the spatial proximity of emission sources and the conjugate problem

    The function of the receptor sensitivity of a territory to placing emission objects (roads, factories, electrical power plants etc) on it can be effectively calculated with the aid of the mathematical apparatus of conjugate problems. Solutions to conjugate equations make it possible to determine the effect of pollution in the form of aerosols or harmful gaseous impurities on the environment and ...

  • Analysis of point source emissions in the Texas-Mexico border region

    Pollutant emissions in the Texas-Mexico border were investigated using an emission database that covers 25 Texas counties and the states of Coahuila, Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas in Mexico. Major emissions are from energy generation, mainly from two coal-fired facilities in Coahuila, which also generate most of carbon dioxide. Texas exhibits a larger concentration of sources; around ...

  • 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 ...

  • Mobile Stationary Source Emissions Testing, Coming to a Facility Near You?

    Last week, Antea Group had the unique opportunity to perform a RATA (relative accuracy test audit) of the emissions from a thermal oxidizer at an ethanol production facility located in Minnesota using a state-of-the-art mobile testing laboratory. During this RATA audit, actual stack emissions levels (including NOx, SOx, CO2, CO, O2, flow rate, temperature, velocity and pressure) from the ...

  • Another source of methane release

    Mary Kang wasn’t even originally looking at methane emissions. The Princeton doctoral candidate was trying to get to the bottom of another issue: carbon dioxide escaping after being stored underground. During that research, she got to wondering about methane emissions from old oil and natural gas wells. What Kang, now a Stanford postdoctoral researcher, and other researchers found could be ...

  • Methane as an energy source for the 21st century

    Today, fossil fuels supply about 80% of global primary energy. The consequences are severe for human health from indoor and regional air pollution, acidification due to sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions and climate change due to rapidly growing greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, there is a clear need to improve the efficiency and the environmental compatibility of fossil technologies, shift ...
