  • Eionet priority data flows, May 2014 - April 2015

    Overall approach for scoring The evaluation of the overall country performance is based on simple scoring rules: for each data flow, the maximum score is 3 points and the minimum score is – 1 point (see the detailed evaluation criteria on pages 8–17 in this report). Scores from all priority data flow areas are summed up for each country and then expressed as a percentage of ...

  • Role of biomass questioned for clean power plan

    In a May 8, 2015, letter, Senators Ed Markey (D-MA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) requested that EPA reconsider its decision to treat biomass as having zero emissions under the proposed Clean Power Plan (Plan). The Senators point out "wood-burning power plants emit around 3,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per ...

  • ACS installation at Glowood 100,000ton/y pellet plant achieves 12mg/Nm3 - Case Study

    With increasingly tougher restrictions on industrial air emissions, pellet manufacturers are looking to "future-proof" particulate matter (PM) compliance, cost effectively. One Portuguese producer, Glowood Indústria S.A., has recently installed a brand new type of mechanical cyclone. The most recent results show a remarkable reduction of its PM emissions, from 700mg/Nm3 to under ...

  • How has MCERTS impacted CEMS?

    Industrial process operators that produce gas emissions to atmosphere are regulated by the Environment Agency. Monitoring of these emissions ensures that the environment is being properly protected and helps them manage their own impact on the environment. Under the Environmental Permitting Regulations, these sites are required to continually measure emission parameters from their chimney-stacks ...

  • Reducing air pollution from electricity-generating large combustion plants in the European Union

    Background In 2008, the European Environment Agency (EEA) published a first assessment of the theoretical potential to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) from electricitygenerating large combustion plants (LCPs) (EEA, 2008). That earlier study showed that improving the environmental performance of existing LCPs by applying best available techniques ...

  • Methylmercury in mosquitoes around a large coal‐fired power plant in Central Ohio

    Emissions from coal‐fired power plants are the major anthropogenic source of mercury (Hg) in the environment. Because emitted Hg can be deposited near the source, concerns arise about the effects of coal‐burning facilities on levels of toxic methylmercury (MeHg) in biota near such sources. We investigated the potential impact of a large Hg‐emitting (450 kg in 2005) coal‐fired power station in ...

  • Enhesa – Enforcement Corner

    As EHS regulatory activity continues to grow, enforcement continues around the world. Below are just a few examples of recent EHS enforcement actions. On 20 June 2011, an oil company branch in the United Kingdom was ordered by Ipswich Crown Court to pay a total of £1.24million in fines and costs over the explosion and fire at one of its gas terminals on 28 February 2008. The explosion blew ...

  • Small-scale electricity production from biomass

    NC Service has set up the first plant of this type in Spain Thanks to the BIOCOM Project, Nicolás Correa Service, S.A. has built the first biomass combustion plant that not only produces thermal energy, but also electricity on a small scale (130 gross kWe). The process is based on the combustion of woodchips in a furnace to produce heat that is then transferred to an ORC module, where it ...

  • Understanding the dangers of combustible dust

    Paper shredding is growing into a big business. Recycling and the green movement certainly planted the seeds, but regulators have added the fertilizer. Industry-changing laws have been passed to govern document security in accounting, healthcare and banking, and shredders of many varieties are becoming the tools of those trades.Five or six years ago Warde Comeaux knew only a few people who ...

  • Estimation of postfire nutrient loss in the Florida everglades

    Received for publication August 28, 2008. Postfire nutrient release into ecosystem via plant ash is critical to the understanding of fire impacts on the environment.
