For instance, 1.0e-04 per year means that one event every 10,000 years is the acceptable risk level. Microfilm copies available through University Microfilms, International, Ann Arbor, Mich. Demand for coke also arises from blast furnaces where iron production in 2012 was close to 660Mt in China alone and more than 40Mt in India. In China more than 500Mt of coal and in India about 30Mt were needed to produce the metallurgical coke consumed by the blast furnaces.
The current market for shale gas processing equipment and components is limited to the North American continent, specifically in the US and Canada. These can be used as feedstock for phenolic resins, herbicides, solvents, wood preservatives, paint and ink driers, fuel additives, etc.4 However, this approach may need aTreatment for final disposal is the last option, but, unfortunately, an inevitable one in most cases.

Few other tools offer this type of training opportunity.
