The whole world is now on this going green kick…….don’t get me wrong, I think that it is great! I love the thought of my children and my children’s children having a beautiful place to live and enjoy when I am long gone. Are we doing enough? What are the big industries doing to help. I mean think of all of the things that are in our air, water, homes, and offices, etc. I found some interesting things out there that I never even thought of before…and I do not claim to know a lot about them. They are just very interesting to me and let’s be honest, they serve a great purpose.
There is heat staking which is eco friendly welding. Plastic welding is a form of welding involving plastic instead of metal and sometimes can be used to re-heat a previous plastic weld so that it can reform….you won’t use a new one which is kind of recyling. You can also heat the plastic that is there and put metal in it if you like. Neat huh?
Well there are also pollutants in the air around the manufacturing plants. They have solids, liquids, or vapors that are leaving the plant all day long. What happens to this waste or these waste streams? Well there are different types of pollution controls in place to protect the environment. One of these is an air pollution control called a thermal oxidizer. Thermal oxidizer equipment is a very important part of the industry and pollution control. Without these items in place, the areas surrounding them risk great damage and contamination.
There is still one more item that isn’t so much really about being green that caught my attention. Well, it’s explosion proof hvac …..I was kind of hoping that they were all explosion proof but….I guess that I was wrong. Just think about being out being at a refinery, a chemical plant, on an oil rig, or an offshore platform. The last thing that you need or want is an hvac that is NOT explosion proof….TRUE?
These are just three items that I wanted to bring to attention but there are lots more out there. Just pay attention…you’ll see. What are you doing to help?
