While wetlands are responsible for a relatively large percentage of methane emissions, some scientists have suggested that lakes and other bodies of water may also contribute heavily. Small lakes have higher methane fluxes per unit area than large lakes. Recent estimates have significantly increased the number of small lakes worldwide. New research efforts can help to determine the scope of these emissions.
The public has become increasingly aware of the presence of chemicals in the water supply. In addition, research has provided growing evidence that many chemicals and mixtures of chemicals potentially present in our environment may act to inhibit, mimic, or accelerate the functions of the endocrine system in humans and animals.
SOLVAir Select 200 trona (a natural form of sodium sesquicarbonate) offers a high-assay, low-cost alternative to acid neutralization. When Select 200 trona is used as a dry sorbent injected into an exhaust duct, the trona readily reacts with acid gases to form a safe, non-corrosive waste product that will not damage equipment.
