Author: Sonal Gilani In an earlier post, Improving Energy Efficiency in Thermal Oxidizers, I highlighted how switching control loops from manual to automatic mode improved overall efficiency. Emerson’s James Beall shared a second story on this thermal oxidizer equipment, which is used to destroy the waste gases containing volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants […]

Back in January, I shared some thoughts from Emerson’s Doug Simmers on improving combustion in a post, Optimum Combustion for Reduced Greenhouse Emissions. He’ll be presenting later this year on flue gas analysis and I was able to get my hands on a rough draft. I’ll highlight a few of his early ideas and hope […]

Last week, I highlighted some of the greenhouse gas regulatory reporting changes happening here in the U.S. I checked in with Emerson’s Doug Simmers, a global product manager in the Rosemount Analytical Combustion Gas business. Although alternative sources of energy continue to grow as a percentage of energy consumed, combustion of oil, gas, and coal […]

I saw news of a combustion optimization and simulation project award for a 385 megawatt power station in the U.S. It reminded me of Emerson’s Jeff Williams presentation on the topic of emissions reduction equipment optimization at the last Emerson Exchange. He also presented at the ISA Power Industry Division Symposium on the topic of […]
