  • Environmental evaluation of systems for the recovery of biogenic wastes

    The recovery of waste materials is promoted by the German Waste Act 'Kreislaufwirtschafts- und Abfallgesetz'. It requires that among the recovery routes available for a specific waste category the priority has to be on those which are more environmentally compatible. As a restriction given by the law, only those recovery routes which are technically feasible and economically reasonable must be ...

  • Is it better to burn or bury waste for clean electricity generation?

    The use of municipal solid waste (MSW) to generate electricity through landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) and waste-to-energy (WTE)projectsrepresentsroughly14%ofU.S.nonhydrorenewable electricity generation. Although various aspects of LFGTE and WTE have been analyzed in the literature, this paper is the first to present a comprehensive set of life-cycle emission factors per unit of electricity ...

  • A hot chance: exhaustive anaerobic digestion of “grey waste” under temperatures of pasteurization

    According to German laws municipal residual refuse MRR (biowaste, paper and glass are collected in separate bins) must be nearly mineralized before it will be deposited in a landfill, since this material can still contain 20 - 50 % biogenous organic matter leading to gaseous and liquid emissions. Especially the high-organic sieve fraction of MRR below 40 - 60 mm and with a thermal energy content ...

  • Conception of a Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) incineration plant and its environmental benefit

    Since landfill ban was realised in July 2009 in Germany, wastes that have a high and middle calorific value must be incinerated. Fossil fuels like oil and coal for the generation of electricity and/or heat can be substituted, so that approximately 4 million tons of CO2 could be avoided. Waste incineration is a possible partial solution for avoiding worst ...

  • Bioenergy and greenhouse gases

    Branches, stalks, and manure are waste no longer; bioenergy is part of the solution to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. A study released by the Green Power Institute, the Renewable Energy Program of the Pacific Institute, reports that converting forest residues, agricultural and urban biomass waste, and gases from manure and landfills into energy helps reduce our greenhouse-gas emissions and ...

  • Effects of the anaerobic biowaste treatment processes Management on the digestate quality (residues from Digestion/compost, process water/wastewater)

    Regarding the municipally-collected biowaste amount in Germany, a quantity of 90 - 100 kg/ per annum per citizen is registered (Gallenkemper and Doedens, 1994). That results in an annual biowaste amount of 6.3 to 7 million tons in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), whereby also sewage sludges and biogenic, industrial wastes are added. According to Hochrein (1994) about 3 million tons of ...

  • Managing Compostable Bags At Anaerobic Digestion Plants

    The highest and best use for treating residential food waste is through source separation, sending organics first to anaerobic digestion (to capture energy), followed by aerobic composting (to return nutrients to the soil). Sending food waste to anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities requires appropriate tools and planning for capturing high volumes of material with low contamination. Compostable ...

  • Allweiler Peristaltic Pumps: an ingenious solution for biogas plants

    Installations and plants used to process biomass for the production of biofuels must be capable of handling difficult conditions. For example, intermediate products in the production of biodiesel exhibit a high level of chemical aggressiveness. Accordingly, pumps, pipe connections, and fittings must be capable of resisting these demanding conditions. In addition, waste products usually contain a ...
