    Processing of LCD screens

    The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain valuable raw materials, such as metals and plastics, which have to be recovered in such a way, that the environment is not harmed. However, recycling specialists, Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH, have now developed an alternative: The company from Kaufering has developed an automatic processing system that enables mercury and other valuable raw materials to be easily extracted and recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.

    Waste recovery for construction industry

    Construction waste consists of unwanted material produced directly or incidentally by the construction industry. This includes materials that may contain lead, asbestos or other hazardous materials. There is increasing pressure on the construction industry to dispose of this hazardous material in an environmentally responsible manner. Tetronics can help alleviate this pressure by providing waste recovery plants to deal with all types of hazardous wastes generated from a construction projects lifespan: from land remediation through to the treatment of APCs from incineration as well as the treatment of asbestos.

    Pressure Monitor use in a Containment Area

    When using negative pressure containment, it is important to monitor the pressure inside the containment in reference to the outside area. However, because the typical negative pressure required is usually only 0.020”WC, it can be difficult to find equipment sensitive enough to measure and monitor your containment area. Omnitec Design has two options to meet this need. Both the Watchman Differential Pressure Monitor and the self-contained Omniguard 4 Pressure Recorder are designed to provide highly accurate monitoring and alarm functions while still being easy to setup with a simple push-button calibration. A pressure monitor is a very important tool that can help ensure the integrity of a containment. Dealing with hazardous debris from abatement/remediation jobs can be a sensitive task that demands safe practices by workers to guarantee their safety, and those who may come into contact with potentially harmful material.

    Recycling equipments for electronic waste recycling (WEEE)

    The content of WEEE (electrical and electronic waste) gives recyclers various initiatives for recycling. It contains hazardous substances, such as lead, mercury or certain flame retardants, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. In 2012 approx. 64,900.000 ton electronic goods where produced and 49.000.000 ton electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) was generated. As the amount of sold electronic goods rise, the amount of WEEE rises. It is vital that this waste is taken care of properly.

    Drill Cuttings

    Common drilling procedures for oil and gas, used widely around the world, produce a consistently increasing amount drill cuttings containing oil. In some cases, drill cuttings even contain other hazardous components such as mercury or NORM (Natural occurring Radioactive Material), requiring special attention. Treatment of drill cuttings is therefore beneficial from both an environmental and an economic standpoint, allowing valuable drilling oil to be recovered, and ensuring environmentally sound disposal of the drill cuttings. Our VacuDry® technology is designed to safely separate oil, water and mercury from the solids (including NORM), allowing reuse of the oil and safe disposal of the water, mercury, solids and NORM.

    Waste recovery for mining wastes

    Mining waste typically arises from the limitation of the installed technologies of an operation, e.g. where fines cannot be tolerated. They are associated with mine workings and often contain valuable and/or hazardous materials. The hazardous content, which are often the valuable fractions within this waste are typically metals. Spread of metal toxicants in association with tailings particles, through a combination of wind dispersion or if washed into the soil or rivers, can have a highly damaging effect on the environment. Crucially, as time moves on, the mine tailing of one generation become the resource of the next.

  • Landfill Piping Solutions

    Landfills are active environments. Through natural processes of rainfall, condensation, and decomposition, landfills themselves produce a liquid waste stream, called leachate. Often the leachate contains hazardous materials, so properly managing a landfill requires handling the waste. ISCO offers products and services to help manage leachate including HDPE landfill pipe, perforated and slotted pipe as well as custom fabricated fittings.

  • Smoke generator devices for lev testing, spray booth clearance testing & air testing

    For many years, materials containing isocyanate have been the single biggest cause of occupational asthma in the UK. Vehicle paint sprayers are 80 times more likely to develop occupational asthma than workers in other industries. This is caused by the inhalation of the fine paint mist that is generated when paint spraying. There is a requirement for the measurement and display of `clearance times` for spray booths / rooms set by the HSE and the Motor Vehicle Repair (MVR) to meet the requirements of Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).
