  • 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 ...

  • Research indicates new tool for reducing ammonia emission

    USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation announce the completion of a funded research project at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga., in which the researchers found evidence of a new tool to reduce ammonia emission from broiler litter. The research project is part of the Association’s comprehensive research program encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing. A ...

  • Air pollution from agriculture: ammonia exceeds emission limits in 2015

    Ammonia (NH3) emissions in Europe have fallen since 1990, but not as much as emissions of other air pollutants tracked under an internationally agreed United Nations Convention. According to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report published today, ammonia emissions increased in 2015 and several European Union Member States as well as the EU as a whole exceeded their respective NH3 emission ...

  • 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 ( ...

  • 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 ...

  • Call for Papers on air quality and emissions

    AQE 2017, the international Air Quality and Emissions conference (Telford, UK, 24th & 25th May) has issued a call for Papers on emissions monitoring and ambient air quality monitoring. Anyone interested in presenting a Paper or a Poster should submit an abstract of up to 100 words via the website www.ilmexhibitions.com/aqeshow/ by 20th January 2017. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Emissions of air pollutants down in EU-27

    The European Community's air pollutant emission inventory report released today by the European Environment Agency finds that in 2007, sulphur oxides (SOx) emissions were down by 72 % from 1990 levels. The downward emission trend of three main pollutants which cause ground-level ozone continued in 2007: carbon monoxide (CO) fell by 57 %, non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) were down ...

  • Masdar signs carbon emission reduction project with
