SSI builds shredding systems for alternative fuels processing

by SSI Shredding Systems, Inc.     based in Wilsonville, OREGON (USA)

SSI has been designing and manufacturing size reduction systems to prepare solid wastes for thermal treatment or conversion to alternative fuel. SSI has supplied hundreds of systems worldwide for generating energy from many different waste materials—from industrial, municipal, and hazardous wastes to tires, mill waste, wood and other organic materials.

Waste recovery for petrochemical wastes

by Tetronics (International) Limited     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

Traditionally, the Petrochemical Sector has operated with basic technological solutions, with ultimate reliance on High Temperature Incineration (HTI) and landfill in order to deal with their hazardous wastes. However, tightening regulation, increasing landfill costs and social responsibilities are driving companies to look at alternative methods of treatment of very challenging wastes, including the treatment of:

Industrial air pollution control for the recycling and waste management

by Chemisch Thermische Prozesstechnik GmbH / CTP Air Pollution Control     based in Graz, AUSTRIA

Due to the continuous rise in the waste volumes worldwide it is essential constantly to seek alternatives to landfills and waste incineration: one suitable approach is bio-mechanical waste treatment. Apart from waste management, applications for air purification systems in this field range from soil remediation to sewage sludge drying in waste water treatment, as well as to the recycling of resources and their possible re-introduction.

Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity reduction tests

by Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd.     based in Motherwell, UNITED KINGDOM

In industrial manufacturing companies, before a new process comes on-line, it is important to measure the toxicity of the effluent stream. This is especially the case for companies who treat their own waste. From the toxicity value (EC50) obtained, it may be a cost-effective solution to simply discharge the effluent to the treatment works at a slow and defined rate to minimise damage to the activated sludge. Following a period of acclimatisation it is often possible to increase feed rates to the plant and this can again be managed using the Strathtox Respirometer. An alternative approach is to undertake toxicity reduction procedures, such as neutralisation or acid hydrolysis, in pilot-scale laboratory studies. The Respiration or the Nitrification Inhibition Test may be used for this. In the future, toxicity reduction may be stipulated by local authority, water company or publicly-owned treatment works prior to giving discharge consents. Toxicity reduction may be evaluated using toxicity tests on activated sludge provided by the treatment works.

Headworks Odor and Corrosion Control Using Hydrogen Peroxide

by USP Technologies     based in Atlanta, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Hydrogen Peroxide typically controls odors and corrosion at treatment plant headworks by direct oxidation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) within the wastewater. In the direct oxidation mode, H2O2 is applied to the wastewater 5-30 minutes prior to the point where the odors are being released, generally as the wastewater line enters the plant boundary. The efficiency of hydrogen peroxide treatment depends upon the available reaction time, the level of iron in the wastewater (reaction catalyst), wastewater pH and temperature, and the initial and target levels of H2S odor. Under optimal conditions, effective dose ratios are 1.2 - 1.5 parts H2O2 per part dissolved sulfide, and can be reliably estimated through beaker tests. H2O2 + H2S → S0 + 2H2O Frequently, control of odors through the primary clarifiers is wanted. In such case, the mechanism of control is both direct oxidation of H2S (as it rises from the solids blanket), and prevention of odor generation (by supplying dissolved oxygen). Control is typically achieved with a booster dose of 1-2 mg/L H2O2 added to the clarifier influent. Higher doses or alternate modes of addition may be required in cases where: 1) hydraulic retention times are > 2-3 hours; 2) solids blanket depths are > 1-2 feet; 3) soluble BOD levels are > 200-300 mg/L; or 4) waste activated sludge is co-settled with the primary solids. 2H2O2 → O2 + 2H2O
