  • Adsorption of As, B, Cr, Mo and Se from coal fly ash leachate by Fe3+ modified bentonite clay

    Fly ash contains the potentially toxic elements As, B, Cr, Mo and Se which upon contact with water may be leached to contaminate surface and subsurface water bodies. This study aims to evaluate the adsorption of these elements from coal fly ash leachates on Fe3+-modified bentonite (Fe-Bent); such modification improved the physicochemical properties of bentonite clay. For optimization of ...

  • Spatial and temporal trends in contaminant concentrations in Hexagenia nymphs following a coal ash spill at the Tennessee Valley Authority‘s Kingston Fossil Plant

    A dike failure at the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Kingston Fossil Plant in East Tennessee, United States, in December 2008 released approximately 4.1 million m3 of coal ash into the Emory River. From 2009 through 2012, samples of mayfly nymphs (Hexagenia bilineata) were collected each spring from sites in the Emory, Clinch, and Tennessee Rivers upstream and downstream of the spill. ...

  • It’s time for the health care industry to raise its voice on climate change

    It’s time for the health care industry to raise its voice on climate change The new Clean Power Plan, stunning in its audacity, will undoubtedly face many hurdles in the coming years. Yet already it has achieved something no other major climate initiative has been able to do. It has reframed the climate conversation to put the focus squarely on the health of humans. Of course, ...

  • As we prepare for the UN climate talks, a look at what’s changed since Copenhagen

    Is the world better suited for an agreement than it was in 2009? 2015 is shaping up to be a pivotal year with respect to climate change as growing concern about impacts converges with a critical stage in the decades-long process of shaping an international agreement to change our trajectory. To help us all prepare for the potentially game-changing 21st gathering of the Conference of the ...

  • As we prepare for the Paris Climate Summit, a look at what’s changed since Copenhagen

    This year will mark the most important negotiations on climate change since the 15th gathering of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change talks in Copenhagen in 2009, COP 15. Those talks ended up with progress on several important fronts, such as getting developed and developing countries to jointly agree on emissions targets for the first time, ...

  • Zimbabwe Power Market Q1 2015 Analysis

    The outlook for Zimbabwe's power sector is moderate, but market opportunities for private investors are limited. On the upside, a number of major projects will boost generation to 15.7TWh by 2023, up from 8.7TWh in 2015, mainly by exploiting coal and hydropower. This will be underpinned by a steady rise in demand for electricity, from13.3TWh to 21.4TWh over our forecast period, as the ...


  • Mexico Power Report Q2 2015

    We maintain our bright outlook for Mexico's power sector, premised on the liberalisation of the Mexican power and hydrocarbon markets and the country's positive macroeconomic trajectory. We forecast total power generation to rise by 3.4% in 2015 and we expect it to expand by an annual average of 3.5% until 2024, driven by growing private investment in the generation and transmission ...


  • Mercury and other trace elements in Ohio River fish collected near coal‐fired power plants: Interspecific patterns and consideration of consumption risks

    Many coal‐fired electric generating facilities in the US are discharging higher loads of Hg, Se, and other chemicals to receiving streams due to the installation of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) air pollution control units. There are regulatory concerns about the potential increased uptake of these bioaccumulative trace elements into food webs. We evaluated the concentrations of As, THg, ...

  • Automated Consignment Sampling Systems

    Introduction The following is a case study where consignment sampling has been implemented at a UK coal fired power station. Bias-Free Sampling The production of consistent and repeatable ‘bias-free’ samples is not possible but all international sampling standards give precise limits within which systems can be considered as being ...

  • Simulation of plume dispersion using different stack configurations and meteorological inputs

    The application of CALMET/CALPUFF modelling system is well known, and several validation tests were performed until now; however, most of them were based on experiments with a large compilation of surface and aloft meteorological measurements, not always available. Also, the use of an operational large smokestack as tracer source is not so usual. In this work, CALPUFF model is applied to ...

  • How toxic is coal ash? A laboratory toxicity case study

    Under a consent agreement among EPA and proponents both for and against stricter regulation, EPA is to issue a new coal ash disposal rule by the end of 2014. Laboratory toxicity investigations often yield conservative estimates of toxicity since many standard test species are more sensitive than resident species, thus could provide information useful to the rule‐making. However, few laboratory ...

  • Design of a Matched IR Emitter for a Portable propane fired TPV Power System

    ABSTRACT: The design of an IR emitter is described for use with a small portable cylindrical ThermoPhotoVoltaic (TPV) generator. The IR emitter consists of a cylindrical array of 1 to 2 mm diameter ceramic rods. The spacing between these rods is chosen such that slits are formed between the rods with a slit width equal to about 1/10* of the rod diameter. Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) modeling ...

  • Using ordination and clustering techniques to assess multi‐metric fish health response following a coal ash spill

    The effect of coal ash exposure on fish health in freshwater communities is largely unknown. Given the large number of possible pathways of effects (e.g., toxicological effect of exposure to multiple metals, physical effects from ash exposure, and food web effects), measurement of only a few health metrics is not likely to give a complete picture. We measured a suite of 20 health metrics from ...

  • Protective coatings for industrial fans

    Industrial fans Large fans are commonly used to provide significant quantities of air needed for operating industrial processes. Coal and lignite fired power plants, cement, metal or woodchip manufacturing are just a few examples of industries that require homogeneous and reliable airflows. When particles are present in the air stream, they relentlessly wearout the fan surfaces. This wear ...
