  • Case study - Flood warning station at Kriebstein, Saxony - Germany

    As flood-warning station and hydrometric base station with a catchment basin of 1754 km2 , reliable data monitoring is extremely important for the hydrological balance of Freiberg and for the whole area around the Mulde. The power plants, located up and down stream of this gauging station, influence the water level and water flow surrounding it.  As a solution for measuring the discharge, ...

  • Hydrogen-cooled electric generators case study

    Application Moisture contamination is measured in the hydrogen gas used to cool large stationary electric generators. Problem Hydrogen is used to cool the bearings and other rotating parts of large stationary electric generators. Hydrogen is the best choice for a cooling gas because of its unique combination of high thermal conductivity and low viscosity. In ...

  • Measuring SO2 ship emissions with an ultraviolet imaging camera

    Over the last few years fast-sampling ultraviolet (UV) imaging cameras have been developed for use in measuring SO2 emissions from industrial sources (e.g. power plants; typical emission rates ~ 1–10 kg s−1) and natural sources (e.g. volcanoes; typical emission rates ~ 10–100 kg s−1). Generally, measurements have been made from sources rich in SO2 with high concentrations ...

  • Statutory Interpretation Central to Arguments In U.S. Supreme Court Greenhouse Gas Case

    Counsel for industry and state petitioners seeking to overturn Environmental Protection Agency permitting requirements for stationary sources that emit greenhouse gases faced heavy questioning before the U.S. Supreme Court Feb. 24 as to the meaning of the phrase “any air pollutant” for purposes of Clean Air Act regulation (Util. Air Regulatory Grp. v. EPA, U.S., No. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Numerical analyses of the hangingwall failure due to sublevel caving: study case

    The sublevel caving used in Kiirunavaara mine induces failure and subsidence of the hangingwall. Two sections of the mine were studied by means of numerical analyses. Numerical models were developed using finite element and discrete element codes. The former was applied to calculate the location of new failure surfaces in the hangingwall and to estimate the break angle when mining advances ...

  • EPA proposes revisions to GHG mandatory reporting rule for stationary combustion sources

    This summer, EPA proposed several updates and amendments to the GHG Mandatory Reporting Rule (40 CFR Part 98). This activity is consistent with EPA’s stated intention to issue amendments and re-propose subparts (i.e., those subparts that were initially reserved upon finalization of the rule last October) by the end of 2010. EPA’s published revisions in the Federal Register on June 15, ...
