Air pollution’s impact on human health

Air pollution control remains the primary task for air treatment companies. The dangerous gases and particulates emitted by car, truck and motorcycle exhausts are directly linked to a wide range of diseases. According to a new study, nowadays the level of air pollution, especially, in cities continues increasing and affects human health, and in particular,...

Scrubbing systems for marine application

At the present time, scrubbing systems are often used for removal of particulate matter and dangerous components, for example, sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides that are a result of combustion processes from the marine industry. This measure is highly needful for providing air pollution control. The fields of scrubber application include exhaust treatment from engines,...

Types of air pollution control equipment

Air pollution is the most crucial problem of today modern society that requires an urgent solution. Herewith, the sources of air pollution can be both natural — for example, — volcanic eruptions and wildfires — and human-made (mobile and stationary ones). Thus, air pollution control remains the only way of air treatment. Also, it should...

Scrubbing system users vs. European Commission proposals

Recently the European Commission has proposed stricter discharge measures for users of open-loop scrubbing systems to coordinate regulations controlling the sulfur abatement technology. The problem will be discussed at the 74th meeting of IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee in May. Now it should be noted that in spite of the fact that wet scrubbers are...

Acid fume scrubber review

Scrubbing system is a technology that allows “scrubbing” exhaust streams of unwanted solids, liquids, or gas particles reducing their possibility to be released into the atmosphere. Thus, scrubbers control all types of gaseous air pollution emissions that are highly dangerous for the environment. Nowadays there are different types of scrubbers that could have different sizes,...

Spray scrubbing systems for pollution control

All methods of scrubbing solid or liquid particles from gases can be divided into two types of scrubbers – dry and wet. Dry methods do not use water or other liquids in the dust scrubbing process. Wet methods of dust scrubbing are based on bringing the polluted gas stream into contact with water, wetting the...

Facts and fears concerning open-loop scrubbing systems

Nowadays wet air scrubbers are considered to be the only solution that main option is air pollution treatment but recent local ban measures concerning washwater discharge from open-loop scrubbing systems have caused a common misunderstanding that there are no universal protective actions against pollution environmental impact. It should be mentioned that the reasons for air...

More ports continue to ban open-loop scrubbing systems

Recently the majority of maritime ports has prohibited the use of open-loop scrubbing systems installed on shipboard, and consequently, wash water release to reduce the level of pollutants in the water environment. This week Fujairah has banned open-loop scrubbers that could be a sign for the following similar restrictions. It should be mentioned that there...
