  • Classification and identification of recyclable material

    This level is expected to reach over 4 million tons by 2010. Companies that specialize in recycling carpet require a fast, reliable and accurate means of identifying the carpet face fiber type entering recycling streams. Collection of plastics for recycling is increasing rapidly. Plastic recycling faces one huge problem, plastic types must not be mixed for recycling. Even a small amount of the wrong type of plastic can ruin the melt. Whether it is a carpet or plastic, classification and identification of recyclable material can be achieved using Bruker Optics` state of the art spectrometer systems. Bruker Optics has applied the FT-NIR technology and experience to this demanding requirement, and offers the Carpet Analyzer as a dedicated solution for the recycling industry.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

    All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.

    Waste Sorting - Bulky Waste Sorting

    TOMRA can help you sort the value out of Bulky waste. Bulky waste can contain a high number of valuable materials but this is not easily accessible within regular waste streams due to its bulkiness. This therefore means that in order to streamline the separation process, the initial treatment step has to involve shredding the input material. In order to prepare sortable fractions, sizing of fractions by screening and the separation of light by heavy compartments is inevitable.

    Waste Sorting - Refuse Derived Fuel

    One way in which values within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Megajoule per kilogramm) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material cement kilns to power plants. TOMRA Sorting technology has long been utilized in many plants across Europe to produce an RDF material from different waste streams according to the specific needs of the end users. The main purpose of this area of work is to ensure that the RDF has very low chlorine content, typically below 0.7% in weight. TOMRA Sortingis able to achieve this by either selecting the ‘good’ material (‘positive sorting’) or by ejecting the ‘bad’ material from the stream, such as small PVC parts (‘negative sorting’).

    Emission control & air dedusting for steel and ferrous alloys

    teel and ferrous alloys production happens in industrial manufacturing processes which involve high temperature exhaust streams, often at more than 900 ºC. Typically, the gas flows into a gas conditioning tower to cool down to approximately 200 ºC, before entering into an ESP. These flue gases from steel or ferrous alloys kilns are also very maintenance demanding for bag filters and the very small size of the particles limit the use of usual dedusters such as regular cyclones and multicyclones as pre-separators. Bag filter failure is consequently a very common problem for clients in this industry. 

    Client`s needs include a very robust dedusting system, either serving as end-stage collector avoiding the need to cool down flue gases, or strongly minimizing the loads of aggressive material to bag filters.

  • Slope Erosion Control

    Problem: Soil particles are susceptible to being detached and carried away with concentrated runoff streams, forming rills and gullies that grow with time. The slope integrity is diminished, eroding the slope face and becoming a larger environmental and safety issue. Slopes steeper than the natural angle of repose for the slope materials require additional protection measures, as are slopes subject to more severe hydraulic stresses.

  • Energy and Fuels from Wood Wastes and Biomass

    Wood wastes include woods from forestry, railways – sleepers, telecoms – telephone poles, timber manufacturing processes and the construction industry. Many of these types of wood tend to be contaminated with chemicals and other materials. This contamination can make the waste wood difficult to use in traditional biomass to energy processes and potentially hazardous to the environment. Our Gasplasma® energy from waste technology is able to transform efficiently the organic biomass into a pure, hydrogen-rich synthesis gas and safely destroys any harmful or hazardous inorganic chemicals. All inorganic materials are made inert and vitrified into an environmentally benign product called Plasmarok® which can be sold as an aggregate for construction, generating a revenue stream.

  • Total Reduced Sulfur (S) monitoring

    Total reduced sulfur(s), which include hydrogen sulfide (H2S), methyl mercaptan (methanethiol, CH3SH), dimethyl sulfide (CH3SCH3), and dimethyl disulfide (CH3S2CH3), occur naturally in the environment and can also be present in numerous industrial gaseous streams – petroleum refining, natural gas extraction, and chemical operations like the pulp/paper industry. Hydrogen sulfide is the most prevalent of the total reduced sulfurs, and is commonly found in volcanic gases, marshes and swamps, wetlands and mud flats, sulfur springs and decaying organic matter. Additionally, hydrogen sulfide is produced by living organisms, including human beings, through the digestion and metabolization of sulfur-containing materials. It must be noted that sulfur dioxide (SO2), sulfur trioxide (SO3) and sulfuric acid mist are not included in the determination of TRS, as these are oxidized sulfur compounds and are permitted and monitored separately from TRS.
