  • Concentrating emissions

    Researchers at MIT have shown the benefits of a new approach toward eliminating carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions at coal-burning power plants. Their system, called pressurized oxy-fuel combustion, provides a way of separating all of the carbon-dioxide emissions produced by the burning of coal, in the form of a concentrated, pressurized liquid stream. This allows for carbon dioxide sequestration: ...

  • Makers of gas-guzzling cars cheat emissions tests the most

    Car manufacturers that sell the majority of gas-guzzlers in Europe manipulate fuel economy figures in tests much more than those makers that produce more fuel-efficient vehicles, a new report by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) reveals. The report adds new evidence to a series of recent ...

  • U.S. EPA ICRs require HAP and other emissions tests on combustion units

    In early June 2009, U.S. EPA issued Information Collection Request (ICR) letters to facilities requiring hazardous air pollutant (HAP) and other emission tests on more than 300 industrial, commercial and institutional boilers and process heaters and on commercial/industrial solid waste incinerators (CISWI). The request is enforceable under Section 114 of the federal Clean Air Act. Facilities have ...

  • LA Testing demystifies LEED testing

    LEED testing for indoor air quality is made simple by California’s dedicated environmental laboratory network. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) established criteria that became a primary tool in rating and certifying new and existing building structures. An official LEED certification increases the value of the property as operational costs of the facilities are usually much lower. ...
