  • 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...
  • Think tanks
Timothy Erdman

A storage tank is only as good as its cover. Less than three years ago, a storage tank cover manufacturer in Fredericton, NB, Canada, introduced its structurally supported “geomembrane” system for a project near Columbus, Ohio. While the firm generally designs its covers for odor control, algae control, gas collection and heat loss control, this particular design also had some impressive breadth to it, covering two 65´-diameter storage tanks. What really caught the eye were its retract...
  • 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. Raw water
Surface water – Whether the water feeding the filter comes from a lake, river, canal or ocean will have an impact on the quality of raw water.
Process water – The amount and ...
  • 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. Our research team at Iowa State University has recently discovered a cheaper and simpler alternative to obtain sugar...
