  • Degreasers to Cut Air Toxics Emissions

    Approximately 50 of the largest degreasing facilities will reduce air toxics emissions under tighter EPA standards that will prevent an additional 1,700 tons of solvent emissions and save the industry more than $1 million per year. Degreasers, also known as the halogenated solvent cleaning industry, use solvents to remove soils such as grease, oils, waxes, carbon deposits and tars from metal, ...

  • Concentrations of air pollutants constant despite drop in emissions

    Concentrations of ozone and particulate matter, two harmful airborne pollutants, have not improved since 1997 despite substantial cuts in emissions of air pollutants across Europe, says a new EEA report, released today. Man-made emissions of all air pollutants fell substantially in the 32 EEA member countries the report says. This was mainly due to the effectiveness of EU policies limiting air ...

  • EPA tightens air emissions for hospital, medical, and infectious waste incinerators

    EPA is setting new limits that will affect most existing hospital, medical, and infectious waste incinerators. This final action will reduce about 390,000 pounds of several pollutants each year including acid gases, nitrogen oxides, and metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury.  EPA is also finalizing additional testing, monitoring, and inspection requirements. This final action revises the ...

  • HS98115 shredder to Yaffe Metals

    Yaffe Metals of Tulsa, Oklahoma purchased a Harris HS 98115 Shredder plant with 4000 HP, zero emissions air system and non-ferrous metals recovery system. This is Yaffe Metals second Harris Shredder, a fact that helped in making the decision to purchase another Harris machine. “The Harris Shredder provides the exceptional production rates we were looking for in a second Shredder with a ...

  • Eleven Member States exceed air emissions limits under LRTAP Convention

    Emissions of most air pollutants have fallen over the last two decades in Europe. But many Member States have exceeded internationally-agreed pollutant limits set to protect human health and the environment, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). Road transport, households, power plants, agricultural activities and certain industry sectors continue to emit ...

  • Air pollution from agriculture: EU exceeds international emission limit in 2014

    Ammonia emissions in Europe have fallen since 1990, but by not as much as emissions of other air pollutants tracked under an internationally agreed United Nations convention. According to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA), ammonia emissions increased in 2014, meaning several EU Member States as well as the EU now exceed their respective ammonia emission limits under the ...

  • Defra publishes additional results of 2007 UK emissions of air pollutants

    Defra has publish additional 2007 results from the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (NAEI) for UK air pollutants. Emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) and ammonia were covered in a separate National Statistics release on 8th January 2009, and are also presented here. HEADLINE RESULTS * There has been a continuation of the long ...


  • Toxic emissions, they’re in the water

    After decades of hammering on corporations to reduce their toxic air emissions, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now focusing on another source of nasty pollution, corporate water emissions. Although the Clean Water Act has technically been in place for well over three decades, the EPA has been lax in enforcing regulations, often due to thinly-stretched resources.Coal-fired power ...


  • Landfill sites: to air or not to air?

    The EU Landfill Directive sets out requirements to landfill waste in the least harmful way for the environment. For example, it aims to reduce the amount of biodegradable Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) going to landfill, and promotes the use of reasonable landfill fees under the 'polluter pays principle', thus making recovery an alternative to landfilling. However, although landfill will never be ...

  • Rhode Island Air National Guard Agrees to Minimize Air Emissions under EPA Settlement

    The Rhode Island Air National Guard will tighten its emissions limits and comply with federal and state air pollution laws at its North Kingstown aircraft repair facility, thereby ensuring that air quality in nearby communities is better protected. The R.I. Air National Guard, 143rd Airlift Wing, has agreed to pay a $39,400 penalty to settle EPA claims that it violated air pollution laws at this ...

  • Fingerprinting emissions from waste incinerators

    The use of MWIs to dispose of materials such as plastic, glass and food waste is increasing in the UK due to EU restrictions on the use of landfill. The European Industrial Emissions Directive, which aims to protect the environment and human health, imposes strict limits on emissions of heavy metals and other pollutants from MWIs. However, the impact of MWI emissions on ambient air pollution is ...

  • Reduced heavy metals and nitrogen in mosses reflect falling air pollution across Europe

    Deposition of heavy metals and nitrogen is falling across Europe, a new study suggests. The researchers used the levels of these pollutants in mosses as indicators of how deposition has changed from 1990 to 2010. These reductions are likely to be the result of effective air pollution policies, they say. Heavy metals, such as lead and cadmium, can be toxic to both humans and wildlife, and ...

  • European successes in reducing toxic metal pollutants

    Strategies in Europe to protect human health and the environment from the harmful effects of heavy metals have been successful in reducing atmospheric emissions of cadmium, lead and mercury, according to a recent study. The study suggests further reductions are possible. Heavy metals are toxic to human health and can damage the environment. For example, if large amounts of lead build up in the ...

  • EU meets most international air pollutant emissions limits, further cuts possible

    Many air pollutant emissions are below internationally agreed limits, except nitrogen oxides, according to a European Environment Agency report released today. Emissions of three air pollutants, including fine particulate matter, are only slightly above targets to be met in 2020. Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are mainly caused by traffic, although this pollutant is also emitted by industrial ...

  • Rhode Island Shipbuilder to Pay Fine and Take Actions to Reduce Air Emissions under Settlement with EPA

    Blount Boats, Inc., which operates a shipbuilding and ship repair facility in Warren, R.I., has agreed to pay a $24,000 penalty and spend at least $230,000 on a clean air project to resolve EPA claims that Blount violated both federal and state clean air regulations. Blount’s facility builds and repairs vessels such as transport ferries and small cruise ships. Specifically, EPA alleged that ...

  • North America’s largest acid manufacturer and its subsidiaries agree to slash emissions and reduce air pollution

    LSB Industries Inc. (LSB), the largest merchant manufacturer of concentrated nitric acid in North America, and four of its subsidiaries have agreed to reduce harmful emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) by meeting emission limits that are among the lowest for the industry in the nation at plants in Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department ...

  • Long term reductions in airborne heavy metals

    Since many heavy metals, including lead and iron, can be harmful to human health at high concentrations, their atmospheric levels are monitored. The UK Heavy Metals Monitoring Network has been monitoring ambient metals for 25 years, and during that time there has been a steady reduction in the levels of most metals in the air - with a few important exceptions. Airborne metals are produced by the ...
