Feature
  • Controlling biomass dust in bulk conveyor systems
Dan Marshall, Martin Engineering

With government agencies poised to more strictly enforce industrial dust regulations, suppliers of bulk material handling systems are investing significant research and development into the design of equipment and techniques that can help contain fugitive particles and thereby improve safety, regulatory compliance and productivity. One of the goals of this research is to minimize the negative consequences associated with dust and spillage, including potential risks to worker health, explosion hazards and the potential for injury from slips, trips and falls. Another objective is to prevent waste, avoid unnecessary maintenance and enhance efficiency, allowing bulk handlers to contain fugitive dust within the material stream.
  • Think tanks

A storage tank is only as good as its cover.
  • Designing water filtration systems
Contributed by Orival Inc.

A filter is a filter is a filter – WRONG! Many factors influence the selection of a filtration system, and filtration design is often described as 60 percent physics and 40 percent art. How this holds true in the real world is the focus of these tips.
  • A simpler route from biomass to cheap sugars
Robert C. Brown and Robert Mills, Iowa State University Bioeconomy Institute

Converting sugar obtained from cellulosic biomass such as corn stalks or wood chips is a proven path to creating biofuels and biochemicals. For decades, researchers have been focused on the use of enzymes to get sugars from biomass. While it works, the use of enzymes is expensive and so far has made the production of biofuels from cellulosic biomass economically unattractive.
