  • RDF

    RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is made from domestic waste which includes biodegradable material as well as plastics, and has a lower calorific value than SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel). RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is used in combined heat and power facilities, many of them in Europe where they produce electricity and hot water for communal heating systems in the local area. Compared to landfilling, the lower carbon emissions resulting from RDF manufacture outweigh the emissions associated with transporting the reclaimed fuel. The increasing importance of Waste to Energy/RDF Waste to energy conversion is an increasingly recognised approach to resolving two issues: waste management and sustainable energy. Waste represents an increasingly important fuel source. Using waste as fuel can have important environmental benefits. It can not only provide a safe and cost-effective way of waste disposal but can also help reduce carbon dioxide emissions. https://the-mkgroup.com/portfolio/rdf-manufacture/

    Applications and Air Pollutants Removed in the Biomass Industry

    Flue gas particulate and acid gases from biomass and bagasse boilers. Removal of ethanol, CO2 scrubbers and yeast cells from fermenters.  Removal of ash particulate, tars, acid gases and ammonia from steam reformers, gasifiers, pyrolosis units and cooling of syngas streams to acceptable limits to enable use as a fuel source for power generation or as a feedstock for chemical products. For tar removal, combination technologies can be used including oil based scrubbing solutions to reduce waste water generation. Ethanol and yeast cell removal from fermenter off-gases. Methanol from processing operations. Hydrogen sulfide removal on landfill, digester and producer gases with regenerable chemistries. Odor control for biomass storage facilities including carbon monoxide removal in wood chip storage areas.

    Air pollution control for ventilation air methane industry

    Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) is a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) released by coal or mineral mining operations, it is also commonly known as Coal Mine Methane (CMM).  The air pollutants from this process have a global warming potential 21 times greater than carbon dioxide, which is another well known GHG.  As alternative energy technologies have developed, methane is increasingly used to generate electricity and heat.  Landfills and mines represent two of the most abundant sources, however reports indicate that more than 50% of all VAM is exhausted from mine ventilation systems and remains unutilized.

  • Measurement solution for siloxane measurement in land-fill gas via FTIR

    What are siloxanes?

    The generation of electricity from municipal digesters and land fill is of increasing interest, as the biogas generated is a form of renewable energy. Organosilicon compounds are often present in products such as shampoo and cosmetics, as well as industrial products and lubricants, and they move into land-fill. These volatile compounds find their way into land-fill or digester gases as siloxanes.

    Food Waste Recycling, Reduction or Disposal Systems for Mining Oil & Gas Exploration

    Oil and Gas Pipeline Labour Camps: With applications across Turkey, Azerbaijan and the former Russian State of Georgia, Tidy Planet are suppliers to 7 different locations for large scale equipment to generate energy from the food wastes at these 400-2000 person sites. With the sites needing a solution that prevents waste being backhauled many miles to registered facilities, having a robust unit on hand that generates the heating and hot water for the kitchens, shower block and laundry is ideal. The Dragon is a scalable solution and can be provided for sites with 200-10,000 staff on site. •Remote Mines & Mine Labour: Treating food wastes at source in remote applications where landfill or uncontrolled dumping of wastes is no longer permitted, on site Rocket composting to allow the use of a composted end product for land remediation is often chosen. Otherwise as with oil & gas the Dragon food waste / energy system a preferred alternative providing a simple method of energy generation

  • Automotive Shredder Residue Drying

    Getting economic value from landfill waste like automotive shredder residue (ASR) is a big challenge that can have a big payoff. Vulcan® Systems Drying Technology is the key component of material preparation when separating ASR waste to reclaim energy and metals. Vulcan® ASR Dryer Systems are manufactured to suit each client’s individual project needs and custom-designed specifically to dry ASR, making the material easy to transport, separate, and handle. This drying system consists of a drum with a burner that is mounted to a combustion chamber. Shredder residue is fed into the rotary dryer. After passing through the system, the dried material is discharged to a transfer conveyor for further sorting and separation. The vapor from the process is pulled through a cyclone that is specifically designed to deal with the fine ASR dust, as well as a high-temperature baghouse that removes additional fine particulates from the vapor stream.
