co2balance are well known for their carbon reduction projects, in particular the household energy efficient stoves. What's less well know are the range of additional projects we are involved in within our project communities in Africa. With support from corporate client Toshiba, co2balance commissioned two school kitchens during 2012. These kitchens provide an efficient method for cooking that halves the amount of fuel required to support the school feeding program. This has a huge impact on the school in areas where the school feeding program directly impacts the number of children that can be educated. A reliable hot meal from school is often the only substantial food many of these children get during the day. As many students walk considerable distance to school (4-6KM is not unusual) going home for lunch is not an option.
Horizontal Recirculation Wells Remediate Fuel Oil Impacts
Catering to the unique needs of the client and working hand-in-hand with the consultant, Directional Technologies approached a challenging remedial situation with flexibility and a new approach to re-task a horizontal injection well system to horizontal recirculation wells. Directional Technologies invites you to read another case study explaining how aproject benefited from decades of horizontal well installation experience and was able to: Cater to the unique needs of the situation by quickly and flexibly...
When are Oil Wells an Explosive Hazard?
Contrary to popular belief, an oil well can be an explosive hazard even when it is not in operation (pumping steady). An EnergyWire review of federal labor statistics cited that the oil and gas sector experiences the most deaths from fires and explosions, compared to other private industries. Risks of Explosive Elements around Oil Wells A recent explosion in 2014 at an oil and drilling site in Greeley, Colorado is an example of how indirect contact with explosive elements in or near the facility can be hazardous....
Stripper Wells goes from 1 BBL to 15 BBL for less $100/day
Feb 2017, Jenfitch, LLC working with a private independent oil service firm from Houston, Texas recently conducted a field study on four different low producing oil wells (Stripper Wells) in Pecos County, TX. These wells were generating 1-2 barrels of oil per day. Using several different methods of injecting JC 9450 into the well, the production increased up to 15 barrels per day for 5 days and then dropped to 10 barrels per day for two weeks. The service operator then injected 5 gallons per day of JC 9450 into...
Case study - Well monitoring for a water supplier
The municipality company, in city of Luebek, Germany, provides potable water for approximately 120,000 households, all pumped from more than 30 wells. These wells have water levels as deep as 160 meters. The water levels of these groundwater wells must be measured with the highest possible accuracy. Previously, the pressure probe`s analogue output signals (4…20mA) that had been used did not fulfill the required specifications and were replaced with OTT systems in 2014. The OTT Pressure Level Sensor was...
Landfill pumps for Gas well dewatering - Case Study
AutoPumps Keep the Power On for Thousands of Florida Homes Waste Management`s Springhill Regional Landfill near Campbellton, Florida generates "green" energy by extracting and burning the methane in landfill gas. Its $7 million landfill gas energy (LFGE) plant, with six large Caterpillar engines running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is capable of producing 4.8 million watts of power. Most of the energy goes to the Alabama Electric Cooperative for distribution to customers, enough to supply the electrical energy...
