Several Santa Barbara County agencies have key engineering review responsibilities for new development. The magnitude of issues raised and the level of engineering review required for...

Forcing Innovation in Air Pollution Control Technology from OCS Development
Air emissions from OCS development projects have been addressed in a three-staged process which involves: engineering to reduce the project's emissions as much as possible;...

The Greening of Corporate America
Since the decade of the 80's has seen both the most stringent environment regulations as well as the most destructive environmental incidents in our history, most American...

Improved Corrosion Protection for Flue Gas Systems Utilizing a Dual Liner Concept
A unique system of corrosion resistant materials has shown excellent performance and durability in flue gas systems for fossil plants, cogeneration plants, waste incinerators and waste-to-energy...

Design Considerations for Control of Volatile Organic Compounds at Wastewater Treatment Facilities
New federal and state regulations require publicly owned treatment works (POTW's) to consider emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC's) as potentially significant...

Acoustic Emission Source Locations in Concrete
The location of acoustic emission (AE) sources can potentially provide information on the fracture process zone in brittle materials such as concrete. Typical AE experiments generate very...
