  • Hazardous and Special Wastes

    Gasplasma® uses a DC Plasma Converter to crack impurities from the raw syngas. The intense heat and strong UV light produced by the Plasma Arc neutralises hazardous wastes, such as sludge and oils, creosote and other preservatives and chemicals. Gasplasma® transforms the organic parts of the waste into a hydrogen-rich syngas that is used to generate clean, renewable power and renewable heat. The second stage Plasma Converter makes hazardous elements inert and all the inorganic materials are vitrified into an environmentally benign product called Plasmarok®.

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for chlorine industry

    The mercury cell process is a formerly widely-used production technique for the production of chlorine and caustic soda. The liquid metal, mercury, acts as cathode (negative pole) in this process. In the past, the loss of mercury during the process (to air, soil and water) led to serious health and environmental problems. Therefore, most European chlorine producers have decided to phase out the mercury cell process by 2020. Nevertheless, even today, almost 6000 tons of mercury is used per year for chlorine production in Europe alone. As a result of this, yearly waste outputs contain around 1200 tons of mercury, which are stored on-site or sent off for disposal.

  • Waste management for dangerous wastes

    A wide variety of wastes are too hazardous to be disposed of by traditional means. Hospitals, clinics, laboratories, nursing homes, funeral homes, dental offices and veterinary clinics are just some examples of places that produce potentially dangerous bioactive waste, often referred to as biomedical waste. Proper disposal of biomedical waste is a complex process that must be carefully controlled to avoid serious public health risks. The waste must be placed in special bags, stored separately, transported in refrigerated trucks and carefully disposed of to eliminate potential exposure. In many cases, the waste must be autoclaved before it is land filled. This complex process results in exceedingly high costs for the disposal and treatment of biomedical waste.

    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.

    Continuous emissions monitoring in waste incineration plants

    Waste-to-energy through incineration of waste is an effective way of producing electricity and heat, at the same time getting rid of the possibly hazardous or unrecyclable waste. The waste can be incinerated at specific WtE plants or at plants with permission for co-incineration of waste at biomass boilers or cement kilns. The waste incineration plants are, however, governed by strict emissions regulations.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Combustible Aluminium, Titanium and Magnesium Dust Collection

    The consequences of an industrial dust explosion or fire are unthinkable - worker injury, loss of life, property damage, business interruption, and irreversible environmental harm. Few companies realize how many diverse and common industrial applications produce combustible particulates, or where in their facilities this catastrophic threat is settling. What is a combustible dust? “A combustible particulate solid that presents a fire or deflagration hazard when suspended in air or other oxidizing medium over a range of concentrations, regardless of particle size or shape” – NFPA 654? High Risk Applications Metalwork (aluminum, magnesium, or titanium and others) – cutting, grinding, or finishing Ceramics – raw product handling and enamel spray Chemicals – material handling, crushing, grinding, roasters, kilns, and coolers Coal mining – material handling, de-dusting, drying, air cleaning Food (flour, sugar, and others) – mixing, grinding, blending, bagging, and packaging Foundry – sand handling, tumbling mills, abrasive cleaning, and shakeout Pharmaceutical – mixing, grinding, blending, bagging, and packaging Rubber – mixing, grinding, talc dusting, de-dusting, and batch-out rolls Woodwork – woodworking machines, sanding, waste conveying?
