PFOS is an extremely stable compound with strong carbon - fluorine bonds, and reports of its accumulation in wildlife and the environment have attracted international attention and concern, leading to the designation of PFOS as a persistent organic pollutant (POP).The persistent nature of PFOS prevents oxidative decomposition using wet chemical oxidation TOC analyzers; however, the Shimadzu high-temperature catalytic combustion TOC analyzer quantitatively recovers PFOS with high sensitivity and accuracy. Here, we demonstrate measurement of PFOS using the TOC-LCPH high-temperature catalytic combustion and the TOC-VWS wet chemical oxidation total organic carbon analyzers.

Exceeding expectations: Safer and better – for all!
In order to reduce emissions to a minimum and increase the employee’s safety at the facilities, Elkem cooperate with NEO Monitors.At Elkem’s plant in Salten, Norway, silicon is produced from quartz in a high temperature process using coal and coke as reducing agents. The silicon is typically used in key components in technical and electronic products, chemical industry, medical industry, cosmetics and more. In the melting process, gases such as Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) are formed. Elkem’s focus on...
Transition metals cobaltites spinel for depollution of NOₓ emissions using SCR technology
Abstract The catalytic performance of various transition metal (M = Cu, Mn, and Ni) cobaltites prepared by nanocasting method were investigated for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NO under lean burn conditions. KIT-6 was used as a hard template in the nanocasting method for preparation of catalysts. The catalyst samples were characterized by various techniques such as XRD, low-temperature N2 physisorption, SEM-EDS, and XPS. The catalysts were examined for the SCR of NO by NH3 and H2-LPG in a packed...
Service quality of household toilets in rural settlements of India: an assessment from the users' ...
User satisfaction with the perceived service quality of household toilets and its attributes is one of the important factors that affect users' attitudes towards toilet use. In this study, the perceived service quality of household toilets is assessed using data on users' satisfaction with individual service quality attributes and overall service quality in Gaya district of Bihar, India. The data collected from 723 households are analyzed using factor analysis and structural equation modeling (SEM). Then, an...
NH3 Slip Monitoring in Fluidized-bed Catalytic Cracking Using the LDS 6 Gas Analyzer – Case Study
Fluidized catalytic cracking (FCC) units are used in refineries to convert low value heavy oils into more valuable lighter compounds. Cracking units are sources of emissions of pollutants (e.g. NOx) and must comply with concentration permits set by local or federal authorithies. Modern technologies are applied to reduce the content of pollutants and to monitor certain gas compounds (here: NH3) in the exhaust gas.The LDS 6 in-situ laser gas analyzer offers the best possible capabilities for this application. It is...
Insitu analysis of ammonia slip and water vapor using a tunable diode laser for SCR/SNCR ...
ABSTRACTEnvironmental Regulations driven by the 1990 Clean Air Act require Power Plants to reduce NOx emissions. SCR`s and SNCR`s reduce NOx emission by injecting ammonia into the combustion flue gas. which ideally reacts with the NOx to form H?0 and Nj. The efficiency of the SCR SNCR is determined by monitoring the outlet for excess NH3. referred to as NH3 slip. The flue gas sample at the measurement point is hot. wet and laden with dust, primarily in Coal Fired Plants (Not usually a problem in Gas Fired...
