As the global focus changes its sights to more sustainable processes, Solvay and SOLVAir Solutions are able to support the necessary air pollution mitigation needs with sodium sorbents. Using DSI with sodium bicarbonate or trona, the objective is to control mainly HCl and SO2. DSI provides a low-capital alternative for treating flue gas, and sodium sorbents are a viable treatment used to mitigate acid gases at many MSW incinerators.
LGR’s new Ultraportable Methane/Acetylene Analyzer (UMAA) reports measurements of methane, acetylene and water vapor simultaneously in a package that is compact, crushproof and travels anywhere. Small enough to be carried on-board aircraft (TSA approved size) and requiring about 60 watts (including pump), the UMAA offers opportunities to measure anywhere.
