  • 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.

  • 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 recovery for energy & utilities

    In order to stay competitive and to be seen as being environmentally responsible, energy and utility companies are always looking for alternative routes to generate power. One method of doing this is by leveraging waste to energy incineration plants linked to the processing municipal solid waste. During this incineration process, APC residues, which are a mixture of fly ash, organic pollutants (including dioxins and furans), are generated and are classified as hazardous waste and have a detrimental environmental impact. This fly ash is subject to Air Pollution Control as it is contaminated with extremely high concentrations of heavy metals and toxic compounds like dioxins, linked to cancer and other health problems. Tetronics offers valuable waste recovery plants that can eliminate the hazardous element within the fly ash while generating an inert building aggregate with the remaining material.

  • Waste water treatment / Sludge management

    PBS Velká Bíteš develops and manufactures machines for the separation of solid and suspended particles from liquids. The so-called "Decanter Centrifuges" can be used for a wide range of applications: from separation of municipal and industrial sludge in waste water treatment plants, through food and chemical industries up to agriculture. In the area of separation, we offer not only the decanter centrifuges themselves, but also the related services, including servicing of third-party equipment.

  • 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.

  • Monitoring Sewage Flow

    Monitoring Sewage Flow is a critical tool for local governments, for water and waste-water utilities and for industrial plants. Sewage monitoring can prevent environmental disasters such as sewage overflow within populated neighborhoods or excessive waste flow into local lakes, rivers or sea. Sewage monitoring is also an important tool for short term and long term planning of the sewers infrastructure. Short term refers to just-in-time and cost effective maintenance. For example, sending the technical team to the correct manhole at the correct time to clean and eliminate obstructions. Long term planning refers to designing the correct pipe diameters and correct slopes to contain sewage from new new buildings and plants. Sewage monitoring is a tool for billing plants who produce sewage above their water intake and a tool for plants which utilize water to request lower utility bills. Solid Applied Technologies provides a complete and tested solution for Sewer Monitoring.

  • Oil water separation for the food industry

    Packaged-food producers frequently use and then must discard large batches of cooking oil used in their process. Usually they drain most of the oil directly from equipment, but they must remove residual oil by regularly washing fryers, ovens, conveyors, and other machinery. 

    The oil mixes with the wash water and becomes part of the plants wastewater stream. Having oil in wastewater complicates the wastewater-treatment process by making it more expensive, more time-consuming, and less effective. Additionally. as with other manufacturers, packaged-food producers want to reduce waste and decrease the environmental impact of operations. That is why removing used oil and solids from wastewater before it is discharged is a priority.

  • Headworks Odor and Corrosion Control Using Hydrogen Peroxide

    Hydrogen Peroxide typically controls odors and corrosion at treatment plant headworks by direct oxidation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) within the wastewater. In the direct oxidation mode, H2O2 is applied to the wastewater 5-30 minutes prior to the point where the odors are being released, generally as the wastewater line enters the plant boundary. The efficiency of hydrogen peroxide treatment depends upon the available reaction time, the level of iron in the wastewater (reaction catalyst), wastewater pH and temperature, and the initial and target levels of H2S odor. Under optimal conditions, effective dose ratios are 1.2 - 1.5 parts H2O2 per part dissolved sulfide, and can be reliably estimated through beaker tests. H2O2 + H2S → S0 + 2H2O Frequently, control of odors through the primary clarifiers is wanted. In such case, the mechanism of control is both direct oxidation of H2S (as it rises from the solids blanket), and prevention of odor generation (by supplying dissolved oxygen). Control is typically achieved with a booster dose of 1-2 mg/L H2O2 added to the clarifier influent. Higher doses or alternate modes of addition may be required in cases where: 1) hydraulic retention times are > 2-3 hours; 2) solids blanket depths are > 1-2 feet; 3) soluble BOD levels are > 200-300 mg/L; or 4) waste activated sludge is co-settled with the primary solids. 2H2O2 → O2 + 2H2O
