Fugitive Emissions Monitoring Articles

  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Reducing and Eliminating Carryback in Mechanical Conveyors

    Conveyor carryback increases operational costs, decreases efficiency, and increases the chance of conveyor-related injuries during clean up. Reducing carryback and tailings should therefore be a goal of every manufacturer who owns a mechanical conveyor system. Why Address Carryback By carryback, we refer simply to material that adheres to or embeds into a conveyor ...

  • Importance of Dust Control Polymer For Mine Tailings

    While separating the minerals from the ore, the residue is a concern for the environment. Tailings are the leftover material after the process. Mine tailings are toxic therefore are recommended to be kept away from the environment. While leaching, the chances are high that the toxic material might get into the water. It pollutes the streams and leads to destructive environmental conditions. The ...

  • Case Study: Cost-effective odor control

    The aromas from savory flavors are detectable even at low concentrations, and pose special challenges for companies who manufacture or use them. Mastertaste, a Division of Kerry Group plc, is a leader in the development and production of savory flavors and blended seasonings. As part of a plant expansion, Mastertaste needed a system to eliminate odors from savory notes and essential oils to a ...

  • Environmental & Economic

    Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a fundamental parameter in assessing air quality. The European Environment Agency (EEA) reported in 2018  that air pollution was the cause of almost 50,000 premature deaths in Europe per year.  This finding pre-empted the head of the EEA agency stating "Air pollution is an invisible killer and we need to step up ...

  • Why monitor dust in the workplace?

    Almost any place of employment can present a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the ...
