  • Controlling Pharmaceutical Coating & Drying Process Emissions

    Capturing and destroying harmful emissions from pharmaceutical processes can be challenging. It’s not because the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are difficult to destroy using catalytic or thermal techniques. It’s because their concentrations can be so high. These process streams raise safety concerns, both when they’re collected in vents and when they reach the final ...

  • Can Composting BMPS Reduce Air Emissions?

    Imagine a scenario where all yard trimmings collected for recycling have to be received, processed and composted under the cover of a building. It would be tough for most yard trimmings composting facilities to survive the expense. Yet this situation could have occurred in Southern California. At one point, the South Coast ...

  • Case study - Printed circuit board emissions

    Overview One of the world's largest printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers was required to install air pollution abatement equipment to control the VOCs emitted during their soldering and coating process. Three main considerations were important to the customer: The need for a system with a competitive capital cost and the lowest possible operating cost ...

  • Case study - Styrene emissions: Catalytic oxidizer with concentrator

    Overview The world's largest button manufacturer needed a pollution control system that would destroy styrene emissions from a variety of plant processes. The plant was proactively seeking a cost-effective air pollution control solution to preempt future regulatory action. The main concern of the customer was the high operating cost of an emission control system. ...

  • Efficiency Bonus From Ford’s Emission-Beating Ovens

    EFFICIENCY BONUS FROM FORD’S EMISSION-BEATING OVENS When Ford decided it was time to refurbish and upgrade two primer ovens and systems at its Dagenham plant in Essex, UK, the company looked to the future. Against a worldwide background of rising concern over environmental issues and pollution, Ford decided to make use of the opportunity to reduce VOC emissions. They aimed for a system ...


  • Air Emissions from the automobile manufacturing industry: a bio-oxidation pilot study of paint emissions control

    Bio•Reaction Industries (BRI) was contacted by Toyota to assess the abatement potential of an engineered bio-oxidation system (biofilter). The proposed intent of the pilot was to evaluate the effectiveness of biofiltration as available alternative to traditional VOC removal technology on an existing 3 stage wheel paint booth. A pilot unit consisting of a biotrickling filter and a separate ...


  • Sensitivity of ozone and aerosols to precursor emissions in Europe

    We modelled the air quality in Europe during January and June 2006 using the MM5/CAMx model system and studied the sensitivity of ozone and aerosol formation to precursor emissions. Increased isoprene emissions by a factor of four in summer caused an increase in afternoon ozone by up to 10%. On the other hand, the effect on secondary organic aerosols (SOA) was very small. Reductions in ...

  • Case study - Flexographic printer: efficient emissions

    Problem Control of air emissions has become an important issue that flexible packaging converters must consider when changing or upgrading equipment. Robbie Manufacturing of Lenexa, KS, a producer of printed shrink films, bags and pouches for a diverse range of applications, addressed its emissions in 1991 and 1996 by investing in two catalytic oxidizers to control the EPA-regulated air ...

  • Regulator designed to help reduce manufacturers` emissions

    Actio Corporation, a provider of softwarefor supply chain materials information management and environmental compliance hasreleased the latest version of Actio Regulator -- an on-demand software productwhich can be used by manufacturers to calculate chemical inventory, usage,emissions, chemical mixtures, scrap and waste, as well as incoming and outgoingdistribution volumes.

  • Studying the influence of biogenic emissions on AOT40 levels in Europe

    It is well known that the uncertainties in determination of biogenic emissions are very large (some authors claim that these emissions are underestimated in certain areas of the world by up to ten times). On the other hand, anthropogenic emissions in some areas of the world have been reduced very considerably during the last two decades (this is especially true for Europe). This fact shows ...

  • Data Requirements Air Emissions/Off-Gases

    Predictive modeling may be usefelected to represent the system (e.g., SVE treatment, incinerator, etc.), and site and contaminant informaul in estimating emissions from a site or treatment system. An appropriate theoretical model is stion is used to estimate gross emissions. Because many variables affect emission rates, this approach is limited by the representativeness of the model and by the ...

  • National Air Pollutant Emission Trends, 1900-1998

     Executive Summary What information is presented in this report? This report presents the United States (U.S.) Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest estimates of national emissions for criteria air pollutants: carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOX ), volatile organic compounds (VOC), sulfur dioxide (SO2 ), particulate matter (PM) less than 10 ...

  • Case study - Destruction of inert process emissions

    Many chemical companies use batch reactors to make their products.  These reactors typically have vents which are opened and closed during emptying, filling, mixing, heating or cooling and other steps of the production process.  The gases coming from these vents must be controlled under most government regulations.  Generally speaking, the emissions produced are inert (little or no ...

  • Case study - Reactor vent emission control

    OVERVIEW Many chemical and petroleum companies use batch reactors to make their products.  These reactors typically have vents which are opened and closed during emptying, filling, mixing, heating or cooling and other steps of the production process.  The gases coming from these vents must be controlled under most government regulations.  Generally speaking, the ...

  • Controlling Stack Emissions in the Wood Products Industry

    Electrostatic precipitation has been a reliable technology since the early 1900's. Originally developed to abate serious smoke nuisances, the manufacturers of zinc, copper, and lead quickly found electric gas cleaning a cost efficient way to recover valuable product carried out of the stacks from furnace operations. Today electrostatic precipitators are found mainly on large power plants, cement ...


  • 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 ...
