What kind of industrial invention revolution is this?

Find more about environmental technology.

With an industrial invention revolution ary thinkers have demonstrated significant changes in thinking.  Here's what people might want to know about the industrial revolution:

- Definition: People may want to know what the industrial revolution is.  During this time, a lot of innovations and changes took place. 

- People might be interested in the historical context of this revolution, including the time period and factors that led to it.

- People might be curious about the key inventors and innovations that emerged during the industrial revolution, including new technologies, machines, and processes.

- Impact on employment, working conditions, and living standards: People may be curious about the social and economic impact of the industrial invention revolution.

Interested in how the revolution relates to contemporary issues, like technology and automation, economic inequality, and sustainability?

Industrial Invention Revolution

What's the deal?  New things, services, and stuff have made our industries more efficient.  Making better products at a lower cost.  With less impact on the environment.

Innovation is always good, right?  You'd think so, but sometimes it's not.  When criminals get their hands on it.  Too many bystanders are at risk from the associated risks.

On the whole, inventiveness increases our value and improves our quality of life.  A new process, like the industrial invention revolution example below, is innovation in action.  It's time to talk about the environment.  With our new skills, we can deal with highly problematic situations.

How do you deal with deeply contaminated soils and sludges?  Do they contain PCBs, other chlorine-based poisons, and dangerous hydrocarbons?

These guys have cooked up something good

This hard problem can be solved by a revolutionary industrial invention called Thermal Phase Separation, which is used by very few consulting environmental or technology companies.

To avoid air contamination, use energy heat transfer and cook without combustion.  It stimulates desorption, opposite of absorption, of the toxin, so it can be collected and disposed of.

It's a Canadian idea.  Companies find it easy to relocate and it's cheaper than other cleaning methods.

An example of an industrial invention revolution...

Take a look at this excerpt from the patent: An improved thermal phase separation unit separates contaminants from a contaminated substrate. The improved thermal phase separation unit includes an enclosure arranged to withstand temperatures created by a combustion system, an essentially air-tight processing chamber supported within the enclosure by support columns connected between the processing chamber and a bottom of the enclosure, a heat shield disposed between the processing chamber and the bottom of the enclosure, and a vapor handling system arranged to remove vapor from the processing chamber. The combustion system heats the processing chamber, and, in turn, indirectly heats contaminated substrate being processed in the processing chamber so as to volatize contaminants in the contaminated substrate to vapor that is subsequently removed by the vapor handling system.

Look for a company that uses this technology, like Phase Separation Solutions Inc. in Calgary.  Let's see if it can start a revolution in environmental design.

Soil and air quality after thermal phase separation

Thermal phase separation is a remediation technique for contaminated soil.  By heating contaminated soil to a high temperature, the contaminants vaporize and separate from the soil.  Before they're released into the atmosphere, the vapors are collected and treated.

There are some environmental concerns associated with thermal phase separation, even though it can remove contaminants from soil.  If the vapors released during thermal phase separation contain pollutants like volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or heavy metals, they can pollute the air.

It's important to use air emissions control technology, like scrubbers or carbon filters, to remove contaminants from vapors before they go into the air.  To make sure emissions are within acceptable limits, air quality needs to be monitored during the remediation process.

The Calvin Consulting Group Ltd., CCGL, also in Calgary, can help if your cleaning methods cause air pollution.  It may be possible for me to assist in the determination of the impact on air quality through my expertise in dispersion modelling.  Please email Barry here if I can be of assistance:


Can you do it better?

You like this Idea? It works for its intended purpose, but probably is not perfect. Why not?

Do you know of a better one? We'd all like to see it, I'll bet. A penny for your thoughts.

Overall, when people ask about the industrial invention revolution, they're trying to understand the historical, social, and economic context of a period of rapid technological change and innovation that transformed industry and manufacturing, as well as its relevance to contemporary issues.

Also, thermal phase separation can be an effective way to remediate contaminated soil, but it's important to consider its potential impact on air quality.

Does the Industrial Revolution include an opportunity to clean up the environment?

Every once in a while, a new invention type of environmental idea emerges.  The soil is cleaned without polluting the air with this one.

Do you have concerns about air pollution in your area??

Perhaps modelling air pollution will provide the answers to your question.

That is what I do on a full-time basis.  Find out if it is necessary for your project.
