  • CANSOLV® SULFUR DIOXIDE SCRUBBING SYSTEM

    The CANSOLV® System scrubbing technology is the leading regenerable SO2 scrubbing process. It uses an aqueous amine solvent in a conventional amine treater process flowsheet configuration to achieve high-efficiency removal of SO2 from a ...

  • EPA establishes new 1-hour standard for sulfur dioxide

    On June 2, 2010, the U.S. EPA established a new 1-hour primary National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for sulfur dioxide (SO2). The new 1-hour standard was set at the level of 75 parts per billion (ppb) calculated as the three-year average of the 99th percentile of the annual distribution of daily maximum 1-hour average concentrations. With the establishment of the new 1-hour SO2 standard, ...

  • Industrial Sources Influence Air Concentrations of Hydrogen Sulfide and Sulfur Dioxide in Rural Areas of Western Canada

    A survey of monthly average concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) at rural locations in western Canada (provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan) was conducted in 2001– 2002, as part of an epidemiological study of the effects of oil and gas industry emissions on the health of cattle. Repeated measurements were obtained at some months and locations. We ...

  • Why Air Quality Specialists Should Measure for Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) in Homes & Offices - Case study

    What is Sulfur Dioxide? (SO2) Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) is a highly reactive gas that is part of a larger group of sulfur oxides or SOx gases. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the largest sources of SO2 emissions are due to “fossil fuel combustion at power plants (73%) and other industrial facilities ...

  • Two Detector Solution to Analyzing Sulfur

    Sulfur compounds are reactive, corrosive to pipes, and destructive to catalysts in petroleum refineries. Sulfur emission are strictly regulated globally. When released into the atmosphere sulfur dioxide converts to sulfuric acid resulting in adverse effects on human health and the environment. Sulfur detection is found useful in many other industries; therefore, detection of sulfur compounds in ...

  • MAXUM edition II - Total sulfur analyzer – Case Study

    To comply with environmental regulations in the production of low-level sulfur fuel, it is necessary to get reliable information about the product quality and sulfur content. The Siemens Maxum II, Total Sulfur on-line process gas chromatograph, provides this information in reliable manner using process suitable analytical procedures. The Total Sulfur solution applies a continuous sample ...

  • Downstream sulfuric acid plants benefit from WESP technology

    Industrial-grade sulfuric acid, still the most widely used industrial chemical in the world, continues to be sourced primarily (about 70 percent) as a nondiscretionary byproduct from the roasting, smelting, and refining of nonferrous metals. The rest comes from natural gas processing, electric power generation, and spent acid regeneration. These industries are usually heavy emitters of ...

  • Evolution of marketable permits: the US experience with sulphur dioxide allowance trading

    The Sulfur Dioxide Allowance Programme, created under Title IV of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, is the first national market-based approach to environmental management employed in the United States and represents a radical departure from both the traditional regulatory approach to environmental policy and from previous emissions trading efforts. This paper reviews the goals of the SO2 ...

  • Emissions Reduction with Diesel Blending

    Diesel technologies are develops by huge rates. Modification of cars with diesel engines make a half of the new cars sold in Europe. The black smoke, noisy engine operation and unpleasant smell remained far in the past. Today diesel engines present not only profitability, but also high capacity and worthy dynamic characteristics. Quality of fuel also is changed. The modern diesel blending has ...

  • Marine Monitoring of Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Many of us who are not in the marine shipping business probably think of vessels as practical means of transportation, or, when it comes to cruising ships,  a place to spend your vacation. However, not all of us realize that large ships also are floating large power plants, with all aspects that come with power plants including potential contribution to air pollution. The ...

  • Air emissions benchmarking report case study

    In 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2013, MJB&A managed the production, budget and release of a collaborative report entitled Benchmarking Air Emissions of the 100 Largest Electric Power Producers in the United States.  The 2013 report was jointly published by Bank of America, Ceres, Entergy, Exelon, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Public Service ...

  • Emissions, Concentrations, & Temperature: A Time Series Analysis

    Abstract  We use recent advances in time series econometrics to estimate the relation among emissions of CO2 and CH4, the concentration of these gases, and global surface temperature. These models are estimated and specified to answer two questions; (1) does human activity affect global surface temperature and; (2) does global surface temperature affect the atmospheric concentration of ...

  • Least-Cost Approaches to Reducing Acid Emissions

    ' The costs of meeting sulfur emission targets can be high. It is essential, therefore, that countries adopt policies which (a) minimize the net economic and social costs of reducing emissions to the agreed target levels, and (b) maximize the overlap between measures designed to reduce acidifying emissions and those addressing other forms of air pollution. This note discusses alternative ...

  • Which sectors should be covered by emissions trading regulations?

    For the first time, the US Congress is debating climate change policy in a serious way. A number of bills have been introduced that would establish greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading programs as part of efforts to address climate change. In discussions on climate policy proposals, the stringency and timing of emissions reduction targets are often seen as determining program costs. Allocation ...

  • 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 ...
