  • Recovery Of Metals Using Combustion

    Process industries generate a number of hazardous waste streams containing metals bound with organic components. These metals can be quite valuable if they can be separated from the organic components and recovered. Four projects are discussed. ...

  • Understanding the dangers of combustible dust

    Paper shredding is growing into a big business. Recycling and the green movement certainly planted the seeds, but regulators have added the fertilizer. Industry-changing laws have been passed to govern document security in accounting, healthcare and banking, and shredders of many varieties are becoming the tools of those trades.Five or six years ago Warde Comeaux knew only a few people who ...

  • Coal combustion products in Europe - sustainable raw materials for the construction industry

    The production of coal combustion products (CCPs) in all the European member states is estimated to be about 100 million tonnes. The utilisation of CCPs is well established in some European countries, based on long term experience and technical as well as environmental benefits. The CCPs are mainly utilised in the building material and construction industry as a replacement for natural resources. ...

  • Combustible Dust: It Doesn’t Take Much

    A dust accumulation of 1/32 of an inch deep—about the thickness of a dime—covering just five percent of a room’s surface area doesn’t sound like much, but it’s enough to cause a catastrophic explosion, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Although good engineering and safety practices to prevent dust explosions have existed for decades, there ...

  • Application of combustion analyzers in safety instrumented systems

    The combustion process has always been considered having the potential for a hazardous event which could lead to personnel injury or loss of production. To mitigate this risk, the process industry is now implementing Safety Instrumented Systems which can identify hazardous operating conditions and correctly respond in such a way to bring the combustion process back to a safe operating condition ...

  • Horizontal Mixers for Secondary Combustibles - Case Study

    The manufacture of secondary combustibles from household waste, industrial waste and special waste in accordance with statutory requirements is to be a huge challenge for system suppliers in the coming years. Currently, at times, extremely differing substances are treated in such a way that they can be loaded into conventional furnaces. The most important requirement is the detailed control over ...

  • EPA proposes revisions to GHG mandatory reporting rule for stationary combustion sources

    This summer, EPA proposed several updates and amendments to the GHG Mandatory Reporting Rule (40 CFR Part 98). This activity is consistent with EPA’s stated intention to issue amendments and re-propose subparts (i.e., those subparts that were initially reserved upon finalization of the rule last October) by the end of 2010. EPA’s published revisions in the Federal Register on June 15, ...

  • Remediation of Abandoned Coal Mines Using Coal Combustion Products

    A slurry of mine water and coal combustion fluidized bed ash (FBA) was injected into an abandoned coal mine in Eastern Oklahoma in July 1997. Oil-field technology was used to inject 1.8 Gg (418 tons) of FBA through five wells in 15 hours. Alkaline minerals in the FBA neutralized acidity and imparted alkalinity to the mine water. Thus, this remediation method uses the waste from an industrial ...
