  • Shipping sector braces for emissions storm

    Is the fuel oil market ready for tighter carbon and sulphur emissions rules on shipping? Tighter emissions regulations are set to cause a revolution in the shipping fuel market over the next few years, with plans now in place for carbon emissions cuts and tougher regulations on sulphur emissions increasingly likely to come into force in 2020. A compromise agreement reached by ...

  • EU fuel quality monitoring — 2014

    Each year, under the requirements of the European Union (EU) Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) (1), EU Member States must report various types of information relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels sold in their territories. More specifically, Member States must sample fuels each year and analyse their technical characteristics to ensure that they are consistent with the requirements of the ...

  • Novel environmental friendly process for reducing the sulphur level in fuel: pervaporation

    Pervaporation (PV) is an alternative membrane-based process for removal of sulphuric components with low energy consumption. In PV, selective removal bases on the concentration difference between two sides of membrane. In sulphur removal process hydrophobic membranes are generally used due to the flexible chain structure. If the solution parameters and polarities of membranes are close to the ...

  • Diesel dispersion is the most demanded light oil products today

    Diesel dispersion is the viscous, hardly evaporated combustible liquid received from oil kerosene-gasoil fractions, by their distillation. It is applied generally, as fuel for trucks, cars, railway transport, a water transport, and also agricultural machinery. All scope of diesel fuel usage is very wide. Diesel dispersion is one of the most demanded light oil products today. This fuel is intended ...

  • Fuel advance keeps - environment clean

    The tendency of environment care extended on all spheres of life is increasing. In the car manufacturing industry changes are occur constantly. More hybrid engines, new types of biofuel and alternative energy are developed. Developing of more fuel efficiency engines creates more strict environmental standards for fuel and it became a commonplace. Compliance to these standards is not always can be ...

  • Source apportionment of PAHs into Central Park Lake, New York City, over a century of deposition

    Relative contributions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from combustion sources of wood, petroleum, and coal were computed in sediments from Central Park Lake (CPL), New York City (NYC) by chemical mass balance based on several reliable source indicators. These indicators are the ratio of retene to the sum of retene and chrysene (Ret/Ret + Chy), the ratio of 1,7‐dimethylphenanthrene ...

  • Making biodiesel blends fuel is simple

    Biodiesel is made in the process of transesterification of vegetable oil by methanol, although sometimes ethanol or isopropyl alcohol are used instead. The ration is approximately 200 kg of methanol per 1 ton of oil (plus potassium or sodium hydroxide). Process temperature is approximately 60°С, no pressure increase is required. After the transesterification reaction, the content of ...

  • Communication to the Council and the European Parliament on a Community Strategy to Combat Acidification

    On 12th March 1997, the European Commission adopted a proposal from the Environment Commissioner Ritt Bjerregaard on a European Union strategy to combat acidification. The strategy will, by 2010, reduce significantly the extent of the areas in the European Union where the tolerance of sensitive ecosystems to acidity is exceeded. Main elements of the strategy include establishment of national ...
