Greenhouse Gas Reduction & Kyoto

With Canada's ratification of the Kyoto agreement, and in the process joining many other countries in the race to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere, you can assist with these goals through utilization of Kyoto friendly practices. Kyoto friendly practices can assist with a producer's, individual, company owner, or community’s goal in reducing overall green house gas emissions to the atmosphere and improving the eco-economic viability of the production facility, company or community in the process. This can be achieved directly through reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and/or indirectly through a reduction in energy consumption.

Sunset Solar Systems Ltd. and Dagaz Environmental Inc. have been promoting a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for 26 years through the proper use of circulators (biostimulators).

Aerobic digestion of liquid municipal, commercial, industrial and livestock waste/effluent through use of the Little River Pond Mill® circulator has the potential to significantly reduce or eliminate methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide emissions (greenhouse gases) to the atmosphere, reduce or eliminate other potentially harmful gaseous emissions to the atmosphere such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide, as well as reduce energy consumption through this efficient circulation technology that promotes re-aeration at the atmosphere-liquid interface (air-water).

Many systems presently on the market that are used for aerating municipal and commercial or industrial waste waters and liquid livestock waste consume large quantities of electrical energy by forcing air into water. This method of aeration is very inefficient and at the most only 40% efficient for oxygen transfer efficiency. Reaeration at the air-water interface is upwards of 99% efficient for oxygen transfer - this is the process that circulators utilize. It's not uncommon when using the LRPM Aerobic Remediation System to reduce overall energy consumption by upwards of 90% while at the same time increasing aerobic digestion efficiency.

Its not uncommon for our installations to save the customer tens of thousands of dollars annually on reduced electrical costs whether it be in livestock operations, industrial, commercial or municipal applications, etc. So besides the financial benefits, there are numerous Kyoto and greenhouse gas benefits which are observed. Stagnant waters and waste waters frequently emit nitrogen gases, sulfur gases, methane and excess carbon to the atmosphere. By remediation of those environments, you can potentially eliminate the greenhouse gas emissions and the acid rain gas emissions, reduce energy consumption and promote a healthier environment.

Some municipal systems have eliminated costly to purchase and maintain and energy inefficient aeration systems through installation of Little River Pond Mill® circulators while others have significantly reduced their operation costs. The circulators have either eliminated or significantly reduced the requirement for additional and costly aeration equipment and at times delayed the requirement for upgrades as a result of reduced capacity or increased demand. Through installation of an oxygen detection meter, which then only turns on the aeration equipment if the oxygen value of the system falls below a set level, e.g. 2 mg/L (ppm), significant annual reductions in electrical consumption have been observed (upwards of $70,000.00+ in financial savings, reduced emissions to the atmosphere through reduced electrical consumption and through biological attenuation of carbon, sulfur and nitrogen). This same process is easily utilized within other industrial (oil & gas, mining), commercial (food processing) and municipal applications.

Little River Pond Mill® circulators can also be used to increase the efficiency of anaerobic digesters. Contact us for further details.
