- In 2018, Europe dominated the global stationary emission control catalyst market.
The event, hosted by the Emission Controls Manufacturers Association (ECMA), will look at the key challenges that will define and shape the success and sustainability of the automotive industry in India over the next ten years and beyond.
It was initially thought that SCR NOx removal equipment would find it difficult to respond to future NOx emission controls because in an atmosphere of low-temperature exhaust gases below 300 C, ammonium hydrogen sulfate (acid ammonium sulfate) - generated by the chemical reaction of the sulfur in fuel oil with the ammonia in the reducing agent - poisons catalysts.
Certainly, the manufacturing industries in the United States could suffer serious consequences if China and India were exempted from the costs of greenhouse gas emission control. Beyond that, if a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions from the developed world is combined with an increase from the developing world, little has been achieved.
Today, these facilities are equipped with enhanced multi-pollutant emission control equipment, including Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology.
"The new cupola and emission control system allowed the plant to have excess heat just pouring out into the atmosphere," said plant engineer John Hummel.
Existing boiler plants without expensive stack emission controls cannot take in C&D wood with more than 50 parts per billion of mercury, and new ones cannot use material with more than 17 parts per billion, both numbers way under EPA's 1,000 parts per billion for "clean" soil.
- new technical requirements and procedures for assessing the in-service conformity of heavy-duty engine emission control systems over defined useful life periods appropriate for the vehicle in which the engine is installed; and
Swedish humidity control products and services provider Munters AB said on Tuesday (24 May) that it had received an order for its marine diesel emission control systems from the Aker Finnyards shipyard in Rauma, Finland.
Despite the progress in reducing the emission rates of new vehicles, emission system component failure, lack of proper maintenance, tampering, and the normal deterioration of emission control system performance all act to offset these emission benefits.
"The study shows we can install new emission control technology on existing diesel buses to significantly reduce emissions," says Ted Angelo, director of emissions product development, Donaldson Company, Bloomington, Minn.
"We successfully leveraged our experience in advanced passenger car emission control technologies in the commercial vehicle segment for the first time on this important platform."
