    Odors control for solid waste

    A solid solution for solid waste odors. All areas of solid waste handling are, by nature, odorous affairs. Municipal sludge, municipal solid waste, landfills, composting and co-composting facilities all generate odors that can be offensive to workers and the community at large. The process is a complex one, with multiple drops, collections, transfers and sortings of recyclable and non-recyclable material. Combustible materials are then incinerated for energy production.

  • Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) & Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF)

    A full-scale Gasplasma® plant can make its own RDF from MSW/Commercial Waste. The waste is brought directly into a fuel preparation hall at the front of the building. Inside the fuel preparation hall there is industry standard equipment that can recover glass, metals and hard plastics from the wastes for recycling. The remaining waste is then dried and shredded to make a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for the Gasplasma® energy from waste process. Clients who already produce RDF may not require a fuel preparation hall. APP can design a plant without this facility, accepting the RDF directly from the client. Secondary Recovered Fuel or Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is often confused with Refuse Derived Fuel because they are similar in nature. However, SRF is produced to reach a clearly defined standard such as CEN/343 ANAS whereas RDF is not.

  • Energy and Fuels from Commercial Waste

    Commercial Waste is similar to Municipal Solid Waste although it tends to have more biodegradable products. Commercial waste is defined as all wastes created by commercial businesses. This can include, but is not necessarily limited to, solid or liquid wastes originating from offices, stores, markets, restaurants, shopping centres and other enterprises. We receive Commercial waste into the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) at the front end of the Gasplasma® energy from waste plant. Any recyclable materials are recovered and the remainder is dried and shredded to make Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). The RDF is used as fuel in the Gasplasma® plant to generate clean, renewable power and heat.

  • RDF

    RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is made from domestic waste which includes biodegradable material as well as plastics, and has a lower calorific value than SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel). RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is used in combined heat and power facilities, many of them in Europe where they produce electricity and hot water for communal heating systems in the local area. Compared to landfilling, the lower carbon emissions resulting from RDF manufacture outweigh the emissions associated with transporting the reclaimed fuel. The increasing importance of Waste to Energy/RDF Waste to energy conversion is an increasingly recognised approach to resolving two issues: waste management and sustainable energy. Waste represents an increasingly important fuel source. Using waste as fuel can have important environmental benefits. It can not only provide a safe and cost-effective way of waste disposal but can also help reduce carbon dioxide emissions. https://the-mkgroup.com/portfolio/rdf-manufacture/

  • High performance solid-liquid separation system for deepwell industry

    Deepwell facilities for the disposal of plant waste streams often employ nominally rated spray spun elements, bags, diatomaceous earth filters, and various other types of conventional filtration technology. These labor intensive systems provide protection of the well from occlusion by suspended particle matter, albeit often with high operational cost and limited assurance of reliable fluid quality. The ongoing challenge facing a deepwell system is the requirement that the formation into which the waste is being pumped must maintain its porous nature in order to operate effectively. Therefore, reliable, effective filtration to capture particles with the potential to plug the formation is critical. Pentair Porous Media’s proven advanced separation technologies have been employed in deepwell disposal systems to enhance system reliability, assure well integrity and lower operating costs and system maintenance.

  • Waste management for hotels and resorts

    Yet, while the people living in today’s wealthy societies can easily escape their every day life and enter the pristine world of unspoiled nature, they cannot escape their propensity for generating garbage. On average, a person generates about half a kilogram of solid waste plus approximately 300 liters of wastewater per day. Tourists frequently generate more waste than the average. Thus, a resort that hosts about 300 guests and staff will generate over 50 tonnes of solid waste and 30,000 tonnes of wastewater per year. Where does a resort located far away from any conventional waste treatment facility dispose of all this waste?

  • Odour and corrosion treatment solutions for wastewater treatment industry

    Odour emissions form a serious problem for many people that live near or work in places which produce odours. These places can be factories, wastewater treatment plants, farms like pig and poultry breeders, solid waste disposal facilities and landfills. As some odourous compounds can be harmful for the health of humans other are simply unpleasant and can cause health problems when exposed to on a continuous basis. In either case something needs to be done about it.

  • 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?
