ABB adds greenhouse gas monitoring to process analyzer capabilities
Upgrades to the AO2000 Series continuous gas analyzer enable monitoring for CO2; options available for non-ABB analyzers.
ABB has released upgrade solutions for its
Advance Optima AO2000 Series continuous gas analyzers (CGA), which expand
monitoring capability to include CO2 green house gas (GHG) emissions
measurement to address expected U.S. EPA environmental compliance requirements.
These regulations will impact reporting

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
