    Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

    Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large storage casks, where it can be held for thousands of years. A challenge for the nuclear industry is the cost associated with conditioning, packaging and storage of these heterogeneous wastes. Therefore, a solution that can decrease the volume of nuclear waste, and reduce the amount of storage required, is considered a commercially advantageous option.

  • RCRA Waste Processing

    With over 40 million tons of recycled waste in the U.S. each year, operators are fervently searching for innovative methods to treat and dispose of RCRA wastes. Vulcan® Systems' thermal desorption technology is a proven method for recycling RCRA wastes in a manner that is efficient, affordable, and compliant with the Resource Conveservation and Recovery Act of 1976. The technology devolatizes hydrocarbons and captures them in a condensor for potential use in fuel blending, while also allowing the delisted end product to be disposed of in a more safe and secure manner. According to the EPA's website, "[the] EPA tried to develop hazardous waste regulations that balance the conservation of resources, while ensuring the protection of human health and the environment." Vulcan® Systems' technology meets the EPA's regulations to ensure that hydrocarbons can be re-used and, RCRA Waste, now delisted, can be appropriately disposed of without damage to the environment or public health.

  • Waste gas & wastewater treatment for the solar industry

    Generating solar energy is considered `green technology`, even though the production of solar cells based on silicon predominantly uses process stages that have been common practice in the semiconductor industry for many years. As in the semiconductor industry the production of solar cells employs dangerous and environmentally harmful substances, which require abatement according to legal provisions. The production of photovoltaic cells therefore is subject to strict requirements for treatment of waste gases and wastewater. Solutions need to be easy and cost-effective. The contaminated wastewaters and waste gases should, under no circumstances, lower performance, endanger the health and safety of humans, or otherwise negatively affect the availability of production facilities. The safety of the production line must be guaranteed at every step and in every operating situation.

    Mercury monitoring for on-site remediation

    Fugitive emissions can be a health concern during removal and disposal of mercury-contaminated material at remediation sites. Thus, remediation projects either indoors or outdoors often require on-site, real-time mercury air monitoring with a Tekran 2537. This assures permitted levels are not exceeded during waste processing and human exposure levels are below government regulated toxicity thresholds. Often multiple sites must be monitored continuously. The Tekran 1115 Multi-Port Sampler is the ideal tool for multiplexing the Tekran 2537 for real-time continuous on-site monitoring of mercury fugitive emissions.

    Industrial briquette presses for Biomass briquetting

    Harness the energy that’s inside your biomass! For too long, human and naturally produced substances have been disregarded. Straw, hay, tobacco, nutshells, miscanthus, pulse parings, cotton and flax are valuable resources for heat energy generation. The briquette shape makes your waste more cost effective to transport and ready in a saleable format. The calorific value of highly compressed briquettes is much greater than of lose material also optimising the combustibility characteristics. Additionally, explosive dust can be handled more safely. Efficient re-utilization of biomass as a cheap alternative fuel source cannot be ignored, particularly in the production of agricultural foods.

    Shredders for Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Refrigerators

    Electric and electronic waste (WEEE), are coming from technology products such as home appliances (washing machines, vacuum cleaners), computers and tools. An economy based on the consumption such as today, provides a continuous increase of WEEE, and determines an increasing risk of dropping out in the environment or in landfills, with the consequences of pollution of soil, air, water and health human repercussions. These products should be handled properly and used for the differential recovery of the materials they are made of, such as copper, iron, steel, aluminum, glass, silver, thus avoiding a waste of resources that can be reused to build new equipment in addition to the environmental sustainability.

  • Gas infusion technology solutions for the water treatment industry

    Every municipality in the developed world has some form of water and wastewater treatment system. This varies from simple outfalls direct to the ocean to very sophisticated activated sludge plants with multiple unit processes dedicated to converting human waste, industrial effluents and storm runoff into clean water discharges and solids acceptable for some form of reuse. inVentures using its gas inFusion technology, has developed the gPRO system for the prevention and remediation of major algae blooms that negatively affect the water quality for millions of people. The company is currently working with several major water authorities on algae prevention programs by efficiently oxygenating specific regions of the water storage areas. Target Oxygenation prevents the build up of algal masses. Algal masses often require expensive treatment remedies and cause major taste and odor issues within drinking water supplies.

  • Continuous Monitoring of Nitrates and Other Water Quality Parameters

    Nitrate is one of the most important parameters in assessing surface and ground water quality. Nitrates are naturally present in surface and ground waters in low concentrations, but are harmful to humans and livestock and cause aquatic ecosystem degradation in high concentrations. Nitrates enter the environment as human-induced pollution from a variety of sources, but the largest source is from agricultural fertilizer runoff . Other sources include wastewater treatment discharge, septic systems, and from pet waste. Nitrate is highly soluble in water and therefore readily leaches into water sources, whereas other human associated pollutants, such as phosphates and ammonia, are not transported as easily. This ability to be quickly transported into ground and natural waters such as drinking water wells, aquifers, reservoirs, lakes, and streams, coupled with its health and environmental implications make nitrate pollution and monitoring of major concern.
