What Coal Technologies Will Meet the EPA’s New Carbon Rules?
The EPA’s carbon reduction plan for power plants is getting a lot of press lately. And the mechanical engineer in me makes me think about the actual technology involved. By Andrea Gains-Germain
EPA’s New Gas STAR Gold Program As Innovation Incubator
The U.S. EPA rollout of their new gas STAR Gold program to supplement the successful, voluntary natural gas STAR program is an encouraging step towards reducing carbon impact. We knew the agency was planning to announce their new approach to reducing methane emissions, and what we heard in San Antonio at the Natural Gas STAR Annual Implementation Workshop was exciting, as it holds potential for the entire oil and gas value chain.

Waste-to-Energy In Amine Gas Sweetening: An Innovative Approach To Recovering Hydraulic Energy from Natural Gas Processing Acid Gas Removal Units
As the demand for clean energy throughout the world continues to grow, the need for disruptive technologies to help natural gas producers overcome the effects of rising operational costs and adhere to more stringent regulations will become increasingly prominent. Energy Recovery’s flexible IsoGen™ skid-mounted system provides natural gas producers with a way to recover otherwise lost pressure energy by replacing the contactor LCV with a liquid phase turbogenerator within their amine treating cycle. This white paper discusses an installation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and showcases where this technology will help transform what was once considered wasted energy into a reliable source of power.
Winds Of Change For Texas Energy
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision this month allowing the EPA to consider costs in regulating emissions by states for the benefit of downwind neighboring states (CSAPR or cross-state air protection rule) means that changes are imminent for state power generators. Specifically, for 28 states deemed upwind of others that are having air quality trouble, changes to coal-fired power practices seem a pressing concern. By Audrey Bold
Your Top Ten Questions About Energy Recovery’s Amine Processing Solutions
The IsoBoost system has a liquid phase turbocharger at its core and harnesses energy from pressure drops in one liquid process flow to boost the pressure in an adjacent flow. It recovers energy in acid gas treatment processes at up to 80% efficiency, increases productivity and profitability — and reduces carbon footprint.
What Gas Processors Should Know About Energy Recovery
Pressure is a common byproduct of many oil- & gas-related operations. Though this waste pressure has the potential to drive a wide range of processes, it’s largely remained untapped as a potential source of power. This, however, is quickly changing as producers look for new and efficient ways to cut carbon emissions and reduce operating costs.
The Power Of Pressure: Next Steps For Oil & Gas Companies Embracing “Eco-Nomics”
Oil & gas companies that have postponed getting on the clean tech train – usually because they don’t believe there are enough proven technologies on the market – should think again about getting the journey started. Now that what we call the “eco-nomics” of clean tech solutions actually makes good business sense, we’re seeing more oil & gas companies adopt processes such as capturing the energy used in gas processing. In fact, three of the 10 most active investors in clean tech startups happen to be among the world’s largest oil & gas companies, according to research firm Cleantech Group. By Audrey Bold
Texas Plant Saves $1M In Energy Costs
Today, energy costs represent ONE HALF of the total cost of oil and gas processing. By harnessing the wasted energy in your high-pressure environment, we can help you slash that cost by 25%, while significantly lowering your carbon footprint. And we have proof.

Asia’s Largest Oil & Gas Company Lowers Energy Costs
Growing demand and higher prices for natural gas might seem like good news for Asia’s largest oil & gas company. But for giant, Sinopec -- the world’s fifth largest company -- significant gas price increases in China also impact the cost of its own gas processing operations. That’s why engineers from the Sinopec Nanjing Engineering Company (SNEC) sought innovative technologies that could reduce energy consumption in the amine gas treating process at the state-owned company’s Songnan Natural Gas Plant in northeast China.
