These presentations and panel sessions focused on carbon capture, sulfur and NOx reduction and indoor air quality

Trends in Waste Heat Recovery Practices in the Process Industry
Alan Rossiter, PhD, P.E.

In many industrial facilities, most of the heat provided to the processes is ultimately rejected to the ambient environment. A large part of this loss is inherent in the physics and chemistry of the processes – most significantly, the Second Law of Thermodynamics. However, the recovery or elimination of industrial waste...

Gas Turbine Operation Improvement with Multi-Function Catalyst
Dan Johnson, P.E.

There have been recent catalyst technology advancements where NOx, CO and VOC emissions can be reduced with a single layer of catalyst. Not only has this allowed for plants to meet more aggressive emissions requirements in the same footprint, but it has also provided more options for addressing emissions induced plant...

Novel Thermal Technologies for Enhanced Air- and Process-Side Performance of CPI-Relevant Heat Exchangers
Ari Glezer, PhD and Arne J. Pearlstein, PhD

* This abstract was co-authored by Ari Glezer (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Arne J. Pearlstein (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).

As the chemical and process industries continue to reduce energy consumption and capital costs in every process, new approaches are needed to improve the efficiency of heat exchangers, or reduce...

Cold Water for Plants in the Desert: Heat Rejection for Water-starved Locations
T. J. Paskach, PhD

Zero effluent and zero water makeup is possible, and even economically attractive, when it is made a priority during process design. The 3.3 million MMBtu per year San Joaquin Renewables biomass-to-natural gas plant designed by Frontline BioEnergy has achieved this goal. Traditional evaporative cooling towers may require 0.06 gpm per ton...
