  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • ASTM E2029 - 11 standard test method for volumetric and mass flow rate measurement in a duct using tracer gas dilution

    The method presented here is a field method that may be used to determine mass and volume flow rates in ducts where flow conditions may be irregular and nonuniform. The gas flowing in the duct is considered to be an ideal gas. The method may be especially useful in those locations where conventional pitot tube or ...

    Pilot-scale testing of an advanced technology for economically capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from flue gas has begun at the National Carbon Capture Center (NCCC) in Wilsonville, Ala. Under a cooperative ...

  • Complex issues with incinerating liquid and gaseous residues

    Production processes in the chem-ical and pharmaceutical industries give rise to gaseous and liquid residues that are preferably disposed of in decentralized incinerators. Most of these residues are highly caloric gases and solutions containing high concentrations of organic substances. The complexity of these often toxic substances requires the use of special equipment for the incineration ...

  • DOE to provide US$36m to advance carbon dioxide capture

    The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced today that it will provide US$36 million for 15 projects aimed at furthering the development of new and cost-effective technologies for the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the existing fleet of coal-fired power plants. “Currently, the existing US coal fleet accounts for over half of all electricity generated in this country,” US Secretary of Energy ...
