Prohibition of open-loop scrubbers

The problem of water pollution is crucial now in every part of the planet. One of the reasons is SOx emissions that negatively influence both air and water environment. That is why it is not surprising that governments want to reduce the level of pollutants by all means. The most common way is the use...

Air pollution control: scrubbing systems hold NOx emissions

Nowadays the problem of air treatment has the prime importance. More and more people suffer from a great number of different kinds of emissions. Air pollution provokes the appearance of new diseases, it influences on every part of the environment. The main problem of California is heavy-duty diesel trucks that now becomes a major source...

New method of CO2 pollution control

Although modern world is developing now and new technologies allow resolving all the challenges, the main ecological problem, that is air pollution, continues to grow. The use of renewable energy doesn’t provide for human energy needs, that is why coal and natural gas is still used. Even with air pollution control the amount of carbon...

The whole truth about gas scrubbing

The process of scrubbing is complicated and needs the use of special nozzles that help to take away pollutants and other chemical contaminants from process gases, liquids, and equipment. For example, coal fired power plants use scrubbers with the aim of removing sulphur oxides from boiler exhaust, also it is possible to take away nitrous...

Wet air scrubbers are the only solution for the shipping industry

Everyday climate of the Earth continues to change as a result of greenhouse effect and human activity or, to be more precise, different emissions from such activities. At the present time the shipping industry is one of the largest sources of sulfur oxides pollutions, behind the energy industry all around the world. Moreover, about 70...

Ecological Engineering: Wet Air Scrubbers

All companies that produce, use or handle more than the threshold quantities with at least one of these substances will be obliged to have an approved release prevention and control program. These limits will be based on toxicity, flammability and amount of the substances which have serious destructive effects on human health. Remediation measures will...

Underground Coal Dust Scrubbers in Coal Mining

For power plants handling millions of tons of coal a year, minimizing coal dust as a high priority. A wide range of technologies is used to manage, control and prevent coal dust in and around coal-fired power plants. Coal-fired plants are turning to high-tech dust suppression systems to control fine airborne coal particles known as...

Wet Air Scrubbers as Highly Efficient Sugar Dust Collectors

Dust is often a major problem in a lot of different industries: coal dust from the air at loading facilities, asphalt dust during concrete production, heavy iron ore dust at iron mines, sugar dust, and suchlike. Sugar dust is a major nuisance for the sugar industry as it causes a substantial loss in revenue due...

High Performance of Venturi Scrubbers in the Removal of Particulates

Further developments of existing processes and procedures in environmental technology form a focal point for operators and manufacturers. Wet air scrubbers remain the main force for the capture and collection of particulates. Whether a wet-working or a dry system should be applied is determined by the particular characteristics of the dust in question: small dust...

Wet Air Scrubber vs. Greenhouse Effect

The greenhouse effect is a regular process that warms the Earth’s surface. The Sun’s energy reaches the Earth’s atmosphere, then some of it is reflected back to space and the rest is absorbed and re-radiated by greenhouse gases. The greenhouse effect problem is that human activities (burning of fossil fuels, agriculture, and land clearing) are...
