When Calvin Tillman was the mayor of a small Texas town at the crossroads of natural gas pipelines and refineries, he tried to alert regulators of problems citizens there were experiencing.
He got little response besides visits to assure his citizens everything was fine.
The citizens of Dish, Texas, didn’t believe it. Tillman said noxious odors emitted from natural gas processing facilities made peoples’ eyes burn and noses bleed.
“We were actually able to improve our situation in Dish through data collection,” Tillman said.
The townspeople collected air samples near natural gas compressor stations and processing facilities. They sent them to an independent testing lab where they were analyzed.Read More
A research and development firm in Massachusetts has developed air quality monitoring equipment capable of detecting more compounds at lower levels than current commercial systems.
OPTRA, Inc. , of Topsfield, was recently awarded a Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) program grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its air monitoring efforts. The company has been working on the new system for over a decade.
“Trace levels are concerning if it’s a particularly toxic compound such as a chemical agent or one with very low vapor pressure, such as many explosives,” said Julia Rentz Dupuis, chief technology officer at OPTRA.Read More
Enormous amounts of excess nitrogen hit water bodies all over the globe, including the U.S., due to runoff from agricultural and other human activities. This nitrogen can cause dead zones and harmful algal growth. Before it reaches the ocean, microbes can process and remove some of it from stream sediments, connected aquifers and tidal freshwater zones. Thanks to this process, coasts can have a decreased likelihood of harmful algal blooms.
Keeping coastal waters clean is important for many reasons, including the fact that about 60% of the U.S. population lives on coasts. But despite the importance of these nitrogen processes, researchers have not fully investigated how they work.Read More
