  • Canopy gas exchange measurements of cotton in an open system

    A portable, open transparent chamber system for measuring canopy gas exchanges was developed and tested. Differentials between incoming and outgoing atmospheric H2O and CO2 concentrations were used to calculate canopy transpiration (E) and net assimilation (A) at 10-s intervals using solenoid valve actuated sample lines connected to an infrared gas analyzer. A programmable data logger controlled ...

  • Pilot-scale demonstration of the hybrid zero-valent iron process for treating flue-gas-desulfurization wastewater: Part I

    The hybrid zero-valent-iron (hZVI) process is a novel chemical treatment process that has shown great potential in previous laboratory and field bench-top scale tests for removing selenium, mercury and nutrients from various industrial wastewaters. In this study, a pilot-scale demonstration was conducted to continuously treat 3.8–7.6 L/min (1–2 gpm) of the flue-gas-desulfurization ...

  • Old Tires Face the Zero Waste Option

    TIRE PILES and tire fires were a prominent environmental burden 20 years ago, but today's options are cleaner with better economic payback. Recovery and use of rubber as an industrial material are far more valuable than use of these feedstocks as fuel. While the price of energy may have doubled in the past few years, the price of virgin rubber compounds has more than tripled - from 30 cents to 95 ...

  • LGD F200 - Designed for easy zeroing and span adjustments

    Regular zeroing and span adjustments to gas analyzers in the field are suggested and required for a variety of reasons. Compliance to environmental standards, e.g. those outlined in the US EPA (40 CFR) or EN 14181 is an important factor. Special application conditions, e.g. a varying gas matrix or compensating for pressure effects can be additional reasons, where a zeroing and span adjustment ...

  • Zero emissions day: What it is and why we need it

    Today is September the 21st – a day that didn’t hold any particular significance until a simple observation occurred in the 1980’s. Ken Wallace, father of a newborn daughter, realized, after witnessing the local neighborhood pizzeria truck, parked, running and driverless, combined with the surrounding traffic that “Stopping all this for a bit would be most excellent for ...

  • 3 Steps to Decarbonizing Development for a Zero-Carbon Future

    A new World Bank Group report lays out three steps countries can follow to reduce net emissions of greenhouse gases to zero and stabilize climate change: Plan for the end goal, not just the short-term; get prices right as part of a broad policy package that triggers changes in investment and behavior; and smooth the transition for those most affected. The actions ...

  • Safety Systems Depend on Reliable Field Sensors (Emphasis on Fire and Gas Detectors)

    Abstract Because not all hazards are the same, identifying and quantifying the hazard is the starting point in choosing sensing technology. Not all detectors are the same, and they should be selected according to their ability to detect the hazard. This paper gives a broad summary of technologies that provide users reliable responses to hazardous conditions, that minimise false ...
