From a regulatory standpoint, the industry is divided into a number of categories: commercial/industrial solid waste incinerators (CISWI), municipal waste combustors (MWC), hospital/medical/infectious waste incinerators (HMIWI), hazardous waste combustors (HWC), sewage sludge incinerators (SSI), and other solid waste incinerators (OSWI). While each sub-category is subject to differing environmental regulations, all can benefit from evaluating their air pollution control requirements.

The leachate produced by the waste in the landfill is an extremely pollutant effluent that requires high effective treatment processes to comply with the very strict limits for discharging operations. EVALED evaporators are a technological solution which allow to exploit the biogas cogeneration for the full or partial power supply of the plant within the limits of the environmental regulations and to reduce the relevant costs for thermal energy and leachate disposal.

Due to recent expansion of EPA regulations regarding discharge of water containing contaminants, owners of boats and marinas have had to heighten their awareness regarding waste water containment. If caught discharging any contaminated water overboard, even an ounce or less of light oil mixed with bilge water will produce a visible sheen on the ground or on the water. This is identified by the EPA as a reportable discharge, of which large fines are possible including clean-up costs, and even criminal...

Increasing population growth and urbanization rates across the world are placing increasing stress on clean water resources and making it more imperative to treat domestic waste water. Additionally, rising water costs due to increasing water scarcity and implementation of tighter environmental regulations to reduce waste water discharge limits are requiring municipal domestic wastewater treatment operators to seek innovative and efficient domestic wastewater treatment solutions.

Retailers are increasingly challenged with meeting EHS regulatory compliance obligations and an intense consumer demand for safer, more environmentally-friendly products. Nearly every aspect of a retailer`s business is impacted by EHS compliance, which requires knowledge and expertise that is far from a core skill set possessed by most of a retailer`s workforce. From sourcing products, to distribution and logistics, to employees handling regulated products, to the proper disposal of hazardous waste, a...

Water is widely used in industry, whether it is encountered as raw water, process water or waste water. Very often this water must be treated before entering the process to ensure its quality and properties will meet the specifications demanded by the industrial process. In addition, with recent discharge regulations and policies towards zero liquid discharge, there is a high demand for solutions for recycling and reuse of waste water produced. Lenntech provides sustainable and complete solutions for water and...

The many production facilities within the steel industry, e.g. the blast furnace, converter, continuous caster, hot and cold strip mills and the coke oven plant require immense quantities of water for the cooling circuits and for gas scrubbing. During the last few years, the majority of steel plants have managed to significantly reduce freshwater usage per ton of steel through water recycling and process optimization. However, the high water quality standards required for the water circuits and regulations for...

SA Eng manufactures industrial shredders dedicated to the marine industry, in compliance with the MARPOL 73/78 regulations - V, about the shredding of the food waste before it is discharged into the sea. The machines, as required by the legislation itself, guarantee a final size below 25mm. The shredders, designed to be installed on board of cruise ships, ferries, offshore platforms can also treat light material such as paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles etc.

Application: In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas.

There are strict regulations in place surrounding waste water, which makes it very important to monitor. Even small changes in aquatic ecosystems can have a huge impact in the chemical makeup of water, temperature, etc. By using real time monitoring on water quality, pollutants can be detected and mitigated before they pose a potential threat to these ecosystems and enter the water course. The rugged AP-2000 allows for real time testing of wastewater and helps to minimise risk of any potential fines. It is...

Waste incineration, including solid municipal and hazardous waste, biomedical waste and hazardous liquid are all continually under more stringent scrutiny by regulators. Macrotek has designed and supplied many integrated systems to meet most guidelines. In several installations, hazardous waste has been combined with radioactive waste, requiring nearly non-detectable emission levels for many of the contaminants. Macrotek has installed and tested systems for these processes with the results significantly...

Refining processes like distillation use high quality steam that must be generated from ultrapure water. Advanced wastewater treatment technologies will help the industry meet tough regulations concerning hazardous waste products from process operations. As the industry expands into water-scarce areas in India, China and the Middle East, marginal sources can help meet the demand for water. Desalination and reuse technologies will secure a reliable source of water and help the industry manage its water impact....
