  • Fingerprinting emissions from waste incinerators

    The use of MWIs to dispose of materials such as plastic, glass and food waste is increasing in the UK due to EU restrictions on the use of landfill. The European Industrial Emissions Directive, which aims to protect the environment and human health, imposes strict limits on emissions of heavy metals and other pollutants from MWIs. However, the impact of MWI emissions on ambient air pollution is ...

  • Emission rules tighten for medical waste incinerators

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's new limits on air emissions will affect most existing hospital, medical, and infectious waste incinerators (HMIWI). This final action will reduce about 390,000 pounds of several pollutants each year including acid gases, nitrogen oxides, and metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury. The agency also is finalizing additional testing, monitoring, and ...

  • EPA seeks comments on draft permit renewal for Veolia hazardous waste incinerator

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is requesting public comment on the Agency’s proposal to renew the operating permit for Veolia ES Technical Solutions’ hazardous waste incinerator in Sauget, Illinois. EPA initially issued a Clean Air Act permit for this facility on Sept. 12, 2008. Most requirements in the current permit would remain in place under the terms of the draft permit ...

  • MACT standards for sewage sludge incinerators

    EPA announced in the October 14 Federal Register proposed rulemaking to cut emissions of mercury, particle pollution and other harmful pollutants from sewage sludge incinerators (SSIs). According to EPA, SSIs represent the sixth-largest source of mercury air emissions in the U.S. The proposed standards would apply to both multiple-hearth and fluidized bed incinerators. Units incinerating sewage ...

  • 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 ...

  • FTIR for CEM’s and VOC’s monitoring

    As major contributors to environmental emissions, the waste incineration and power generation industries require both continuous and periodic emissions monitoring to ensure each plant is within Emission Limit Values (ELVs). FTIR provide to perform emissions monitoring solutions for the range of standard incineration or “combustion” gases, both inorganic species such as CO, NOx, SO2, ...

  • Landfill and Biogas gas monitoring

    Landfill and biogas provide a source of readily available and renewable energy. However, as a source of energy care has to be taken to understand and quantify impurities in the raw gas that can have an effect on either the amount of energy products, or contaminants that can foul the energy generators (siloxanes). ETG can provide analysis solutions to qualify and quantify these impurities. Gas ...
