Combustion provides heat for many industrial processes and accounts for over 80% of the power used by turbines to generate electricity. Over the past several decades, regulatory action and concerns over environmental air pollutants, such as oxides of nitrogen (NOx), have pushed industrial process designers to develop burners that lower pollutant emissions and prompted manufacturers to switch to...

LEAN Chemical Manufacturing There has been a great deal of new activity around so-called lean thinking or the lean enterprise lately, even though the practical application has been going on since the early 1900s. It was started by Henry Ford, and followed on by Edwards Deming and Taiichi Ohno. These three were relentless foes against waste. If the chemical process industries (CPI) were to implement lean to...

Wastewater streams from petroleum refineries present some of the largest ranges of variation in contaminant loadings and contain some of the toughest contaminant profiles to treat. These factors render the wastewater treatment processes difficult to control. The most challenging area of wastewater process control in petroleum refining lies in biological treatment, due to the vast number of control...

A variety of factors — including a shift in the median age of workers worldwide and the impending skills shortage due to attrition and early retirements — have created a need to find fast and reliable methods and tools for mapping the technical competencies of professionals in the chemical process industries (CPI). Typically competency-mapping projects in the CPI begin with some form of task or...

Regulatory authorities around the world require continuous emissions monitoring of certain pollutants from large combustion sources. There are two main technologies for monitoring these emissions on a continuous basis — the more traditional one relies on sampling and analyzing exhaust gases from a continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS); and the newer one relies on software that uses...

Water systems are common in the chemical process industries (CPI). Mixing, heating, concentrating and evaporating water in these systems will often result in an accumulation of inorganic scale, which can markedly decrease process-system efficiency. Scale inhibitors are chemical substances that, when added to industrial water at very low levels, act to reduce or prevent the formation of scale. Over the past...

Many individuals and organizations have made important contributions to the creation of inherently safer (IS) products, processes and process plants [1–3]. A brief survey of successful case histories shows that most reported applications relied on only a few of the core IS principles. This paper emphasizes the opportunities presented by three particular — and often-overlooked —...
