  • A new global map of ammonia emissions

    For the first time, a global map of atmospheric ammonia emissions has been produced using satellite measurements. This opens up new ways to survey air quality and monitor the Earth's atmospheric chemistry from space. Modern agricultural practices, especially intensive farming methods and widespread fertiliser use, are mainly responsible for ammonia emissions, which have more than doubled since ...

  • Greater efforts to reduce ammonia emissions needed to meet air pollution targets

    Levels of particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere are linked to ammonia emissions. However, reducing ammonia emissions only as far as targets set out by the Gothenburg Protocol will not necessarily ensure compliance with EU PM limits, according to a new study. Greater reductions in ammonia emissions would reduce the number of days when PM limit values are exceeded, the researchers found. In ...

  • IPPC guidance on ammonia, acids and fertilisers

    Detailed EU guidance has been agreed on how to apply best available techniques (BAT) to minimise the environmental impacts of installations producing ammonia, acids and inorganic fertilisers. The BAT reference document, known as a bref, is of much more greater significance for the European industry than related IPPC guidance on specific inorganic chemicals ( ...

  • Why It Is Important To Monitor Ammonia Slip In A Coal Fired Power Power Plant

    Monitoring flue gas ammonia slip in a coal fired power plant is performed immediately after the SNCR/SCR and is a very challenging task, but extremely important for process efficiency of the pollution control equipment.  The flue gas is filled with high levels of sulfur dioxide, particulate, hydrochloric acid and many other corrosive and noxious gases making the ammonia measurement a very ...

  • ThermoEnergy to Deploy its Ammonia Recovery System with ProfiNutrients BV in the Netherlands

     ThermoEnergy Corporation (OTCBB: TMEN) (www.thermoenergy.com) has announced that it will be deploying a ThermoEnergy ARP™ (Ammonia Recovery Process) system at an award-winning biogas production plant outside of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The ARP system will be owned and ...


  • NREL Demonstrates Light-Driven Process for Enzymatic Ammonia Production

    A new process using light to reduce dinitrogen into ammonia, the main ingredient in chemical fertilizers could inspire development of new, more sustainable processes that eliminate the energy-intensive, lengthier processes now commonly in use. According to researchers at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), photochemical (photon) energy can serve as a substitute ...

  • Reaching Euro VI emissions limits

    The requirements of low and lowest detectable exhaust analysis has prompted Eco Physics to launch a broad range of analyzers for NO/NOx detection. Emissions tuning is one of the targets of the EURO VI regulations as well as US EPA 2010, which are: Reduction of Particulate Matter (PM) and reduction of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). In the past 15 years – since the first European regulation for exhaust ...

  • Reducing NOx emissions for a Cleaner Environment

    Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is one of the most popular processes today to reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from combustion sources, such as power plants, stationary power stations, ship engines or even automobiles. Axetris LGD F200 OEM Modules for ammonia (NH3) detection are being successfully used today to control and test the process of urea injection for NOx reduction. ...

  • Air pollutant emissions to exceed limits

    In 2010, around half of the European Union's Member States expect to surpass one or more of the legal limits set by the National Emission Ceilings Directive (NEC Directive). The annual status report released today by the European Environment Agency (EEA) confirms that 11 countries anticipate an exceedance of their ceilings for NOx — some by more than 40 %. Of the four pollutants ...

  • Measuring the impacts of the Nitrates Directive on nitrogen emissions

    The EU’s Nitrates Directive has led to significant decreases in nitrogen pollution in Europe, a new study suggests. Modelled scenarios with and without implementation of the Directive showed that it had resulted in a 16% reduction of nitrate leaching by 2008. These improvements could be further increased as implementation becomes stricter, the researchers conclude. More nitrogen is applied ...

  • Eating insects `could cut greenhouse gas emissions`

    Dining on crickets, locusts, or even cockroaches, instead of cattle or pigs, could ease both food insecurity and climate change, according to researchers. Insects caught in the wild are already eaten widely in the developing world. Now a study says that farming them on a large scale for food would damage the environment far less than equivalent livestock production. Scientists compared emissions, ...
