An EPA criteria pollutant
Program offered by the U.S. Department of Energy that allows states to compete for funding to implement activities related to programmatic areas, such as federal energy management, building codes and standards, alternative fuels, industrial efficiency, building efficiency, and renewable energy technologies.
A device or system that is used to capture a spill event. The provision for spill containment typical at loading and unloading spots is identified in the Federal Water Pollution Control Act as the SPCC Rule. The typical device for railcar spill containment is a track pan system. For truck loading and unloading spots, the spill containment is usually designed and incorporated into the concrete pad layout.
Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures Rule-The Federal Water Pollution Control Act (as amended by The Clean Water Act) the SPCC rule took effect on January 10, 1974. Its purpose is to prevent oil and oil-related materials from reaching navigable waters and adjoining shorelines.
Internal combustion engine in which the charge is ignited electrically (e.g., with a spark plug).
A visible haze caused primarily by particulate matter and ozone. Ozone is formed by the reaction of hydrocarbons and NOx in the atmosphere.
A self-contained system that is mounted on a base or platform that serves as the boundary for the system. The skid can be fixed/permanently mounted or mobile/wheeled. The configuration of the skid and the rage of operation the skid performs is the choice of the customer … from “basic” to “controlled”.
Scrubber systems are a diverse group of air control devices that can be used to remove some particulates and/or gases from industrial exhaust streams. Traditionally, the term "scrubber" has referred to pollution control devices that use liquid to wash unwanted pollutants from a gas stream. Recently, the term is also used to describe systems that inject a dry reagent or slurry into a dirty exhaust stream to "wash out" acid gases. Scrubbers are one of the primary devices that control gaseous emissions, especially acid gases.
