By P.W. Wypych, V. Ronda – This paper (publ. 2016) initially summarises the various existing options available for dust control and some of their features, advantages and disadvantages. It then describes some of the new technologies that are being researched, developed and employed to minimise dust emissions by addressing the root cause/s of the problem, such as dustability or dustiness and the dust generation mechanisms. Some recent research results and case studies are presented to demonstrate some interesting findings obtained from this work. With improved understanding and modelling of dust generation mechanisms and also bulk material dustiness, it is possible to achieve a step-change improvement in the design, troubleshooting and application of more efficient dust control technologies.

It will load 150-car trains under continuous motion on a loop track system, keeping grain moving to market. Continue reading G3 announces new Grain Elevator near Morinville (AB), Canada
Rheinberg, Germany – A new biomass power plant to be built for ENCE Energía & Celulosa in Huelva, Spain by Spanish general contractor, SENER, will have two Samson® Material Feeders which have been ordered from AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH. The new power plant will use many different alternative fuels. The decision by SENER/ENCE in favour of the Samson machines was just as much a rejection of the originally planned deep pit solution. Continue reading Aumund: Samson Material Feeder preferred to Deep Bunker in Spanish Biomass Power Plant Project
