  • On-Site Incineration Tames Arsenal Waste Mixture

    Toxic wastes from various chemical processing activities at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) had accumulated in on-site evaporation basins over many years. The highly corrosive wastes, which posed environmental and potential health hazards, were by-products of the U.S. government’s chemical weapons program during World War 11 and its later weapons disposal program, as weIl as sorne pesticide ...


  • Simulations of the dispersion from a waste incinerator in the Turin area in three different meteorological scenarios

    A numerical modelling study for the assessment of the air quality impact of a waste incinerator to be built in the city of Turin is presented, aimed at evaluating the ground level concentration distribution during adverse dispersion conditions, causing severe pollution episodes. The pollutant impact of the incinerator is evaluated with the three-dimensional modelling system RMS. This class of ...

  • Computer simulated versus observed NO2 and SO2 emitted from elevated point source complex

    ISC-AERMOD dispersion model was used to predict air dispersion plumes from an diesel power plant complex. Emissions of NO2 and SO2 from stacks (5 numbers) and a waste oil incinerator were studied to evaluate the pollutant dispersion patterns and the risk of nearby population. Emission source strengths from the individual point sources were also evaluated to determine the sources of significant ...

  • Contained Gas Rule Changes A Laymen`s Discussion On A Complicated Topic Today`s OXIDIZERS becoming Tomorrow`s INCINERATORS?

    New EPA regulations classifies "oxidizers" as "incinerators", meaning  if this is not changed, the emissions standards and regulatory requirements associated with operating oxidizers become much more complex because incineration rules specify extensive recordkeeping, monitoring and reporting requirements. Last month, when EPA released new rules affecting the combustion of solid wastes most ...

  • Management of Hazardous Wastes

    ' Management of hazardous waste is a growing concern in many countries. The long-term impacts and costs of improper disposal can be very high and the emphasis must be on prevention. A comprehensive management system should include (i) policies, institutions and effective regulations and (ii) adequate and acceptable disposal facilities (either public or private). This note outlines the key ...

  • What’s next for food waste?

    With the target to halve edible food waste by 2020 drawing ever closer, a growing number of food manufacturers and retailers are improving their waste prevention strategies. But when ‘waste’ is inevitable, what then? Paul Featherstone, group director of SugaRich, investigates the extent to which such organisations are saying ‘no’ to landfill, before considering what ...

  • Defining solid waste

    Simultaneous to the publication of the final National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Boilers (the Boiler NESHAP) and the Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incinerator (CISWI) Rules, EPA issued a new regulation that for the first time defines what materials are a non-hazardous solid waste when combusted. This rule, Solid Wastes Used as Fuels or Ingredients in Combustion ...

  • Waste Management Overview

    Introduction Our Nation has entered an era in which, as a result of changing world conditions, nuclear weapons production is receiving less attention while the public is expressing increasing concern about protecting human health and preserving the quality of our environment. In response to this national concern, the Department of Energy (DOE) has made waste cleanup and environmental restoration ...

  • Study Charts a Future for Waste-Derived Fuels

    Pointers to possible future EU policy initiatives to give co-incineration facilities burning waste-derived fuels a strategic role in waste management have emerged in a study for the European Commission.1 The report suggests a policy focus on promoting source separation of municipal wastes, active discouragement of mass burn incinerators, and a levelling of the regulatory playing-field for ...

  • A chance to drive hazardous waste policy

    The proliferation of energy-from-waste (EfW) power plants is making a significant contribution to the UK’s efforts to end its reliance on harmful fossil fuels. But while EfW plants provide a solution to municipal waste, they also produce a low amount of hazardous waste in the form of air pollution control residue (APCr). Despite numerous solutions existing that process and reuse APCr ...

  • Net Zero Waste – So What?

    Leading world organizations warn us that economic growth and social development cannot be sustained with our current consumption, production and disposal patterns. Yet in spite of increasing sustainability initiatives and better product and recovery technologies, global waste continues to grow at an alarming rate.
