  • This article describes state-of-the-art wood stoves that are designed to meet pollution standards of the EPA. To reduce pollution, the new stoves may use catalytic combustors, insulating firebrick and secondary combustion air, or they may use clean-burning wood pellets as fuel. According to the EPA particulate matter in the nation's air may be reduced by 436,000 tons a year by 1993 after a more stringent set of pollution standards takes effect in 1990. Pollution control has added $100-$200 to the average price of a new EPA-certified stove; however, homeowners will recoup that money in savings on wood and on chimneymore » cleanings. They also predict that by 1993, the nation will be saving 700,000 cords of wood a year. Indirect savings from fire insurance premiums and health insurance premiums as the results of fewer chimney fires and better air quality may be expected also. The EPA estimates the possible health and welfare benefits at $1.5 billion annually by 1993.« less
  • Variations of the bubble concept, such as the bubble or dome approach, offsets, netting, and emissions banking, have forced regulators, industry, and environmental groups to confront both the benefits and possible disadvantages of grafting incentive-based approaches onto the Clean Air Act. The author examines the costs and benefits of these incentives and the importance of recognizing that there are valid stopping points that acknowledge the need for interim progress and the bubble's ability to secure it. New Environmental Protection Agency regulations will tighten requirements for nonattainment-area bubbles in ways that make trades easier to use. The agency will not debatemore » again whether trades are impermissible because their reductions might have happened anyway. The new rulings may lose some Clean Air Act reductions, but more real-world environmental progress will be made. 4 references.« less
  • This paper reports that a fundamental building block for natural transmission lines, is steel, and it will be for the foreseeable future. Plastic pipe is the choice for distribution piping, but it can't meet the DOT (Department of Transportation) standards for pressure on current transmission piping. And more advanced materials, such as the high-tech graphites and ceramics under scrutiny by the likes of the auto and aerospace industries, are still too expensive to be practical for pipelines. For years, natural gas carriers have used X60 or X65 grades of steel (indicating a yield strength of 60,000 or 65,000 pounds permore » square inch (psi), respectively). Gene Smith, chief engineer of metallurgy at MidCon Corp. and a member of A.G.A.'s Pipeline Research Committee, says that today, however, X70 is almost the norm. People see that if you use high-strength steel, you save weight. Forty percent of a pipeline construction budget typically goes for steel, so using less steel can show nice results on the bottom line. Pipeline engineers already are looking ahead to X80 steel. Because it is stronger, the walls of the pipe can be thinner, adding up to big savings over the length of a pipeline.« less
  • As fuel prices rise, electric utilities and process plants are increasing their use of air heaters. To overcome disadvantages in standard designs, the authors company has developed a thermo-syphon heat pipe air heater that is operating today in numerous applications. The heat pipe is described in this paper.
