NEWS RELEASE                                                                                                    MARCH 2014

Continuous Analyses of Energy and Environmental Subjects Now Available

McIlvaine is launching a series of websites covering Industry Options. Each contains one or more continuing analyses of the decisions which the designer and operator have to make.

The websites already launched are:

Websites under construction are:

  • Drinking Water Filtration - Continuous Analyses
  • Secondary Wastewater Treatment - Continuous Analyses
  • Steam Valves - Continuous Analyses
  • Access to each website is free to anyone.   The intelligence system with all the background information is also free with no password required.  Additional papers, presentations, etc. are invited. This includes text in other languages as long as an English summary is included. A special emphasis will be given to capturing the intelligence being generated in China.

    The background information will be evaluated and Continuous Analyses prepared. These Continuous Analyses will provide independent evaluation of the life-cycle costs and performance of all the various system and component options.  Access to these analyses will be free to owner/operators, but will require a subscription for others.

    Suppliers can choose to have McIlvaine conduct an Application Audit.  This audit is a white paper with third party experts making independent evaluations. The niche experts making these evaluations will be encouraged to focus on a very narrow area to ensure that they have unsurpassed knowledge of the subject.  The Application Audits will be posted and free to anyone.

    There will be periodic webinars on each subject. For example, there will be several continuing analyses under Gas Turbine Emission Control. One will deal with CEMS. A webinar will be held on April 17 to debate six different approaches to measuring NH3.  This follows previous webinars on the subject and a feature article in Air Pollution Control magazine.  Two webinars relative to Continuing Analyses on Mercury Reduction are also scheduled.

    Webinars are free to plant owner/operators, but there is a charge for others.  Here is the near-term schedule:
