  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

The control of emissions to air can only be ...

  • 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 ...

  • Synthesis Energy Systems Announces Successful Test of High Ash Chinese Coal for Use in China's Ammonia Industry

    Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc. ("SES") (NASDAQ: SYMX), a global energy and gasification technology company, announced today the successful completion of a 5-day long commercial demonstration test at SES' Zaozhuang joint venture plant in Shandong Province, China where it gasified low quality high ash coal on behalf of Yankuang Yishan Chemical Industry Company ("YYCC").

  • UK emissions of air pollutants - 2007 results

    Defra has published 2007 results from the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (NAEI) for UK emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) and ammonia. HEADLINE RESULTS * Emissions of each of the four pollutants have fallen between 2006 and 2007, with decreases of 2 per cent for NMVOCs, 3 per cent for ammonia, 7 per cent for nitrogen oxides, ...


  • Introducing the IFT HC-SCR Emission System

    The IFT HC-SCR Emission System is a single-solution for Tier IV emission compliance, reducing NOx, HC, PM, and CO by over 95%, using diesel fuel as the reductant to the NOx reduction catalytic process. The IFT HC-SCR Emission System also provides real-time emissions monitoring over the Internet for easier and less costly regulation compliance. IFT HC-SCR Advantages over Urea SCR IFT is focused on ...

  • 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 ...

  • China and India nullify global reduction in CO2 emissions

    Despite the continued economic crisis, global emissions of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, have remained constant in 2009, as strong increases in CO2 emissions from fast-growing developing countries, such as China and India, have completely nullified CO2 emission reductions in the industrialized world. According to calculations in the report "No growth in total global CO2 emissions in ...
