  • Controlling Stack Emissions in the Wood Products Industry & Wood Fired Boilers

    Electrostatic precipitation has been a reliable technology since the early 1900's. Originally developed to abate serious smoke nuisances, the manufacturers of zinc, copper, and lead quickly found electric gas cleaning a cost efficient way to recover valuable product carried out of the stacks from furnace operations. Today electrostatic precipitators are found mainly on large power plants, cement ...

  • Modelling emissions of perfluorinated chemicals to the Danube River Basin

    The emissions of two perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) into the Danube River Basin have been estimated in a test of four different hypotheses regarding the factors affecting those emissions. The results were used to simulate water concentrations for comparison with measured data. The researchers found that incorporating wastewater treatment information and wealth distribution alongside population data ...

  • Sharpening Your Way to Better Groundwater Models

    There is a well-known fable about a wood cutter who was hired by a timber merchant to cut down trees. This well sought-after job paid well and had excellent working conditions. The wood cutter wanted to succeed in his new job so the first day he worked hard and cut down 18 trees. Determined to do even better on the second day, the wood cutter tried harder but only cut down 15 trees. Day after day ...

  • The potential of energy conservation and emission reduction for the Chinese boilers

    With the publication of the coal convert to gas fired boiler policy, to control the pollution from the resource, all the provinces has removed, stopped and reformed to the high energy saving coal fired boilers. It is reported that there is a huge space in the energy saving and emission. low combustion, high energy saving potential the Chinese industrial boiler has a wide market,and most of them ...


  • Analysis of fire behaviour simulations over Spain with WRF-FIRE

    Wildland fire spread and behaviour are complex phenomena owing to both the number of involved physico-chemical factors, and the non-linear relationship between variables. Spain is plagued by forest and brush fires every summer, when the extremely dry weather sets in along with high temperatures. The use of fire behaviour models requires the availability of high resolution environmental and fuel ...

  • Modelling dispersion of smoke from wildfires in a Mediterranean area

    We present a modelling system for the estimation of forest fire emissions ( prebolchem-fire ) and their inclusion in the atmospheric composition model BOLCHEM. Emission fluxes have been estimated following the methodology proposed by Seiler and Crutzen (1980) and using MODIS ‘burned area product’. Then they are modulated following the WRAP approach (WRAP, 2005). This approach is also used for ...

  • EU could cut emissions by 40 percent at moderate cost

    The costs of achieving a more ambitious EU climate target are estimated to be moderate. Upscaling greenhouse-gas emissions reduction from the current 20 percent by 2020 to 40 percent by 2030 would be likely to cost less than an additional 0.7 percent of economic activity. This is a key finding from an international multi-model analysis by the Stanford Energy Modeling Forum (EMF28) and comes at a ...

  • Prescribed burn smoke impact in the Lake Tahoe Basin: model simulation and field verification

    Smoke dispersion modelling based on the Fire Emission Production Simulator and the Hybrid Single Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory (FEPS-HYSPLIT) model was applied to prescribed burns in the Lake Tahoe Basin (LTB) during fall 2011. This, in conjunction with measurements at sources and real-time ambient PM 2.5 monitoring around LTB, served to evaluate the prescribed burning impacts on ...
