    • Microalgal removal of CO2 from flue gas Microalgal removal of CO2 from flue gas Xing Zhang Recorded: Apr 22 2015 11:00 am UTC 39 mins
    • Microalgal removal of CO2 from flue gas
      Various methods have been developed to remove CO2 from the flue gas of coal-fired power plants. Biological post-combustion capture is one of these. Microalgae may be used for bio-fixation of CO2 because of their capacity for photosynthesis and rapid growth. The ability of microalgae to withstand the high concentrations of CO2 in flue gas, as well as the potentially toxic accompanying SOx and NOx has been researched. Microalgal strains that are particularly suitable for this application have been isolated. Most of the research on algal bio-fixation has been concerned with carbon fixation strategies, photobioreactor designs, conversion technology from microalgal biomass to bioenergy, and economic evaluations of microalgal energy. This webinar considers current progress in algal technology and product utilisation, together with an analysis of the advantages and challenges of the technologies. It opens with a brief introduction to the theory of algal bio-fixation and factors that influence its efficiency especially in terms of flue gas characteristics, and then discusses culturing, processing technologies and the applications of bio-fixation by-products. Current algae-based CO2 capture demonstration projects at coal-fired power stations around the world are described.

    • Coal and gas competition in power generation in Asia Coal and gas competition in power generation in Asia Dr Nigel Dong Recorded: Mar 18 2015 12:00 pm UTC 43 mins
    • Competition between coal and natural gas for power generation has been observed to occur in North America and Europe in recent years, where the costs of the two fuels have played a key role in determining the relative competitiveness. It is perceived that such a competition could also happen in Asian countries. More importantly, as these countries are expanding their generation capacity to meet growing electricity demand, a key question is raised of whether coal or gas power plants should be built with priority. This webinar is based on a recent report published by IEA CCC, where the authors investigate nine Asian countries to seek to understand the mechanisms that drive the competition between coal and gas for power generation.

    • Shale gas, public health and planning: five things to think about for shale gas Shale gas, public health and planning: five things to think about for shale gas Michael Stephenson, Director of Science and Technology, British Geological Survey, UK Recorded: Sep 22 2015 3:00 pm UTC 42 mins
    • According the US Energy Information Administration, shale gas will provide half of the United States’ domestic gas by 2035. Shale gas is also well developed in Canada and being developed in South America and China. The economic benefits of shale are likely to cause other countries to look at this energy source. But shale gas is extracted by hydraulic fracturing which frees the gas from the tight shale and is different in scale and technique from more traditional ways of extracting oil and gas. What can local people expect from these sorts of operations and what do local planners, environmental engineers and health professionals need to know?

      In this webinar, Mike Stephenson will consider five important issues: noise and visual impact, truck traffic, air quality, groundwater contamination and induced earthquakes. He will look at the reasons why they occur, the effects they have, and aspects of their regulation – all explained in simple non-technical language.

      Prof. Mike Stephenson is Chief Scientist at the British Geological Survey. He has advised the UK government on shale gas and carbon capture and storage issues, and spoken at parliamentary events including at the House of Lords Select Committee on Economic Affairs. He has also contributed to debates at the UK Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering, and the European Parliament.

    • European policymakers are renewing their attention to Europe’s energy sources.

      Russia dominates the supply of gas to Europe, and Europe has looked to reduce its dependence on Russia by turning to the Middle East and Central Asia.

      Now, new sources of gas from North America, Australia and even inside Europe offer the promise of increased diversity of supply. These include shale gas – both domestic and imported, and coal-bed methane deposits.

      At the same time, Europe is looking to pipelines from the Middle East and Central Asia to bypass potential supply black-outs.

      Join this European energy roundtable to assess the impact of European energy security concerns on infrastructure development and financing.

    • 5 Steps to Building an ERM Programme 5 Steps to Building an ERM Programme Mark Boult Director at DNV GL, Oil and Gas Recorded: Apr 21 2015 10:00 am UTC 62 mins
    • Risk management is an increasingly important
      business driver and stakeholders have become
      much more concerned about risk. Risk may be a
      driver of strategic decisions, it may be a cause of
      uncertainty in the organisation or it may simply be
      embedded in the activities of the organisation. An
      enterprise-wide approach to risk management
      enables an organisation to consider the potential
      impact of all types of risks on all processes,
      activities, stakeholders, products and services.
      Implementing a comprehensive approach will
      result in an organisation benefiting from what is
      often referred to as the ‘upside of risk’.
      The global financial crisis in 2008 demonstrated
      the importance of adequate risk management.
      Since that time, new risk management standards
      have been published, including the international
      standard, ISO 31000 ‘Risk management –
      Principles and guidelines’. This guide draws
      together these developments to provide a
      structured approach to implementing enterprise
      risk management (ERM)

    • The Analysis Workflow of the New EPA Method 325 for Fenceline Monitoring The Analysis Workflow of the New EPA Method 325 for Fenceline Monitoring Jamie Brown - Supelco R&D Scientist , Lee Marotta - PerkinElmer Senior Field Application Scientist Recorded: Feb 17 2016 6:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    • The new EPA METHOD 325 for sampling Volatile Organic Compounds from Fugitive and Area Sources was promulgated in September of 2015. The petroleum refineries have 2 years to comply with the new ruling. Benzene emissions are the focus of the new ruling, but other VOC’s can be monitored using the same sampling tube. The air samples are collected using thermal desorption tubes that are deployed along fenceline of the property and remain deployed for 14 days. The samples are collected passively, without the using of an air sampling pump. After sampling the diffusive endcap is replaced with a metal storage cap and sent to a laboratory where they’re analyzed by thermal desorption gas chromatography. This is the first of a two series presentation that focuses on the analysis side of the workflow. It provides users the steps required to comply with the new EPA fence line regulations and what is needed to optimize the method for high sample throughput. Refineries and testing laboratories will benefit by gaining valuable information on the optimum techniques to perform this method and what it takes to comply. An introduction to the theory and operation of thermal desorption will also be included.
