Under the Clean Air Act, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the authority to set standards to limit pollutant concentrations discharged into the air (emissions) from a variety of sources, such as steel mills, chemical plants, and utilities.
Biofuels created from the conversion of feedstock play an important role in reducing carbon emissions by lessening our dependence on fossil fuels. This reduction in carbon emissions is essential in the effort to control climate change.
We are very pleased to be included in the Orlando Business Journal’s list of top engineering firms. Thank you, Governor Rick Scott, for your acknowledgement and kind words.
Waste to energy technologies are processes designed to convert waste materials to useable energy in the form of electricity, heat, or both.
Following are some key facts and figures from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regarding solid waste management in the United States in 2014, the most recent year surveyed.
Drones are used for everything from warfare to delivery of goods from warehouse to home. Engineers have discovered that drones – known technically as Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) – can make the painstaking task of performing survey work faster and easier.
Researchers believe climate change is responsible for an avalanche in Tibet that claimed nine lives and injured hundreds of others when more than 70 million tons of ice broke off from the Aru glacier in the mountains of western Tibet
According to Amir Jina of the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago[i], planet Earth reached a global warming milestone in September 2016. Jina says that the milestone will occur on a volcano in Hawaii where a monitoring station has been recording carbon dioxide levels in the earth’s atmosphere since the late 1950s.
In 2012, the New York World published an article that shed some light on what we can expect in coming years in our perpetual battle to dispose of our garbage. With more people populating the planet, it’s axiomatic that we will create more waste, and we have. Additionally, there are issues regarding the collection of garbage that assault our senses,
The trend today in solid waste management is for waste disposal sites such as landfills and incinerators to be located in remote areas far from population centers. Municipal Waste Transfer Stations bridge the gap between where municipal waste is collected and the distant disposal sites, and are a key component in a community’s overall waste management solution. When located and designed properly, transfer stations can reduce costs, save fuel, and offer enhanced waste screening and recycling opportunities.
