  • How much does it cost to build a sand and grave plant?

    To answer this question, we need to determine the following factors. The type and size of the sandstone plant determines its investment amount. How much is the processing capacity? The investment in sand and grave washing plant of different production scales varies greatly.  What is the ...

  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Alternative Fuels - A Look At the Current Environment

    Overview Vehicles powered by gasoline and diesel account for emissions of dangerous air pollutants and contribute to the presence of greenhouse gases. Consumers, businesses, and public entities looking for environmentally friendly alternatives to gasoline and diesel-powered cars and trucks have viable choices beyond the well-known battery electric and plug-in hybrid electric ...

  • Micro Pulse Lidar: Perfect Tool for Atmospheric Research

    Micro pulse style lidars are active remote sensing tools proven to be highly useful in atmospheric research. This style of backscatter lidar has been around for decades; however, incremental improvements in photon counting, sensitivity, polarization, optical filters, coatings, and precision machining of each element support increasingly accurate analysis. Each iteration of the ...

  • Top 5 Differences between Micro Pulse LiDAR and Ceilometer Technology

    If you are evaluating backscatter LiDAR sensors for measuring aerosols, cloud vertical structure, and planetary boundary layer (PBL) heights, what factors should you consider in your comparison? It really comes down to a choice between the traditional analog technology used in ceilometers and the more recent advanced technology found in Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) sensors. ...

  • Water Infrastructure for Sustainable Communities

    A new model for water management is emerging worldwide in response to water shortages, polluted waterways, climate change, and loss of biodiversity. Cities and towns are questioning the ecological and financial sustainability of big-pipe water, stormwater, and sewer systems and are searching for “lighter footprint” more sustainable solutions. Pilot projects are ...

  • Stormwater Treatment: Priority pollutant behaviour in stormwater BMPs

    The term Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) (also known as sustainable urban drainage systems; SUDS) refers to a wide range of stormwater control systems which enable the planning, design and management of stormwater to be tackled equally from water quantity, water quality and amenity perspectives (). Commonly used systems include: Storage systems (e.g. retention ponds and constructed ...

  • Computer-Aided Design of Permeable Concrete Block Pavement for Reducing Stressors and Contaminants in an Urban Environment

    Permeable pavement is a key component in reproducing pre-development hydrologic regimes, because it can reduce surface runoff, improve water quality and recharge groundwater. In designing a permeable pavement installation, it is fundamentally important to provide and maintain 1. a surface infiltration and 2. a storage capacity that allow an adequate volume of stormwater to be captured and treated ...

  • Linking the management of urban watersheds with the impacts on the receiving water bodies: the use of flow duration curves

    There is growing evidence that changes in the current hydrological behaviour of urbanising catchments are a major source of impacts on the downstream water bodies. However, current flow-rates are rarely considered in studies on urban stormwater management, usually focused on extreme flow-rates. We argue that taking into account receiving water bodies is possible with relatively small ...

  • Catchment `greening` using stormwater in Adelaide, South Australia

    ABSTRACTThe paper reviews the goals of stormwater management adopted in Adelaide and declares a focus on harvesting of stormwater to replace mains water in irrigating areas landscaped with grass, flower beds and shrubs. Four categories of catchments are recognised according to their levels of pollution production - roof runoff and 'low', 'medium' and 'high' pollution runoff surfaces. Four case ...

  • The importance of wastewater treatment in shipbuilding industry

    There is a huge amount of wastewater outcome during the ship production and repair processes in shipyards. Especially production processes (blasting, welding, painting, machining and metalworking), repair processes (hull washing) and painting processes (paint removal) create a huge amount of wastewater. In addition to these, open area processes of ship repair and maintenance cause stormwater ...
