  • 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 ...

  • Gas alarm system protects waste treatment staff

    The human nose is particularly sensitive to Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S); a highly offensive odorous gas, reminiscent of rotten eggs. With an odour threshold between 0.005 ppm and 1.5ppm, relatively low levels of Hydrogen Sulphide can result in complaints if industrial plants generate exposure at these levels. A chemical waste treatment plant in the UK has therefore installed a monitoring and alarm ...

  • Don`t waste the waste

    Biogas analysis cannot be underestimated: get it right and protect revenues, get it wrong and those revenues will quickly plummet There is no denying that biogas is valuable. It may not be the most pleasant material to handle — hot, wet, dirty, smelly, corrosive, toxic — but handled correctly, it is worth a lot of money to whomever is producing it. Encouraged, subsidised, ...
