In a Plant Engineering article, Two ways smart pneumatics maximize energy savings, the authors describe how smart pneumatics can help save large amounts of energy and reduce emissions.
Energy & Emissions
Aurélien Tissot joins podcast host Jim Cahill in this Emerson Automation Experts podcast to discuss the topic of emissions and the technology opportunities for manufacturers and producers.
Industrial plants are required to comply with air quality environmental regulations, which can take many forms depending on the application and pollutants involved. Regulatory bodies, such as the Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and the Council on...
Richard opened his 2021 4C Health, Safety & Environmental conference presentation showing a flare gas recovery unit that works based on the pressure in the flare manifold. The purpose of their research was to find ways to predict flare events early enough to be able to avoid where possible.
A key conference for health, safety and environmental (HSE) is the 4C Health, Safety, and Environmental Conference. The 2021 conference will take place next week, August 18-20 here in Austin, Texas.
I caught a presentation by Ana Gonzalez Hernandez, who is leading Emerson’s Environmental Sustainability programs globally across Emerson. She opened noting some of the key characteristics of this promising decarbonization solution: hydrogen is the most abundant molecule in the universe, it is the lightest element and so has low energy density per unit volume; it is a non-toxic, non-metallic, odorless, colorless and a highly combustible diatomic gas.
In the Google translation of the article, Energy carriers of the future: How companies benefit from hydrogen, Emerson’s Jörg Brahm notes there are challenges to overcome for widespread use as an energy source.
It is impossible to miss the shift toward more sustainable operations—driven by new social and consumer expectations—in nearly every industry across the globe. Chemical producers are no exception, as industry leaders take advantage of digital technologies and expanded...
Deliver better control, reliability, and safety in today’s demanding steam operations with Rosemount 8800™ MultiVariable Vortex Flow Meter
Vortex flow measurement is uniquely adaptive when it comes to handling difficult applications. By virtue of its science, utilizing the von Kármán effect, these instruments are accurate across a wide operating range and effective at withstanding high process pressures...
NOx is probably the most ubiquitous combustion-created air pollutant since it can be generated by any process burning any fossil fuel, and it is tightly regulated by the U.S. EPA and other regulatory bodies around the world. Plants with relevant combustion processes,...
Meha Jha described how environmental reporting is being digitally transformed at the 2020 4C HSE conference. Typical flow measurements for compliance reporting need to be verified every year to every few years based on the local regulations. Traditionally this...
The 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24) was held in Katowice, Poland, December 2-14. For many years, manufacturers have been on a path to drive more sustainable operations in reducing emissions and energy...
