Running Head: ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES Addressing Environmental Issues Based on Safety Theories and Technology Scott C Vinsonhaler Columbia Southern University
ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES 2 Addressing Environmental Issues based on Safety Theories and Technology US Environmental Protection Agency (Control for Mercury and Ammonia) Based on the US Environmental Protection and Technology Verification program, the work of Ashley et al. (2005) highlights various aspects of how possible it is to protect the environment from pollution. The study narrows down to how to manage the threat of Ammonia and mercury, which are potentially hazardous to the environment. The study emphasizes the need for the protection body to limit the amount of mercury emitted into the air, water sources, drinking water, and landfills and surface impoundments. The study equally proposes specific measures of controlling mercury pollution by first understanding the level of mercury that might be harmful to human health. After determining the right levels, it is imperative to establish a measuring and monitoring exercise, cleaning up mercury-contaminated sites, and providing both the state and consumers with proper guidelines to reduce mercury harm exposures. The study equally provides useful mechanisms and measures for controlling ammonia pollution. The article highlights how ammonia exhausts are emitted into the atmosphere from industrial processes, and in various forms. According to EPA, the primary control to Ammonia involves venture and cyclonic spray towers. It also directs that secondary wet scrubbers can also be used in fluoride. In most cases, phosphoric acid is the most effective scrubbing liquor for controlling ammonia pollutants. The equation used for computing water flow rate from pipe diameter (Application & Variables)
ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES 3 The general equation for computing the flow rate of water in the diameter of pipes is represented by dividing the flow rate by the product of pie (pi) and velocity. The variables here
