This Handbook provides a concise overview of the latest technologies for managing industrial air pollution in petrochemical, oil and gas, and allied industries. Detailed material on equipment selection, sizing, and troubleshooting operations is provided along with practical design methodology. Unique to this volume are discussions and information on energy-efficient technologies and approaches to implementing environmental cost accounting measures.
The small number of livestock product studies identified in the review necessitated the use
of more modest criteria for nutrient selection. Analysis was conducted on all nutrients or
nutrient groups for which numeric data were provided in at least 5 of the 25 livestock
product studies which reported comparisons between organic and conventional livestock
products (see Appendix 11).
To help the U.S. Air Force identify potential interoperability problems that might arise in NATO alliance operations or U.S.–allied coalition operations with NATO allies over the next decade, and to suggest nonmateriel and technology-based solution directions to mitigate any identified potential shortfalls, this report provides background information used in a larger Project AIR FORCE study entitled Interoperability

The chemical process industries (CPI), petroleum and allied industries
apply physical as well as chemical methods to the conversion of raw feedstock
materials into salable products. Because of the diversity of products,
process conditions and requirements, equipment design is often unique, or
case specific. The prime requirement of any piece of equipment is that it
performs the function for which it was designed under the intended process
operating conditions, and do so in a continuous and reliable manner.
The American Institute of Steel Construction, founded in 1921, is the non-profit
technical specifying and trade organization for the fabricated structural steel industry in
the United States. Executive and engineering headquarters of AISC are maintained in
In March 2009, the RAND Corporation convened a small group of experts from the U.S. government, allied partner nations, the maritime industry, and academic organizations to reconsider the underlying factors that drive maritime piracy in the 21st century. This conference proceedings highlights the six major themes that
