  • The twin cities sludge-to-energy plant reduces greenhouse gas emissions

    ABSTRACTThe majority of Utilities and Agencies in the United States (U.S.) that incinerate sludge treat this practice as a disposal method and do not maximize the recovery of energy available in the sludge and hence, do not contribute to the reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) have used incineration at the Metro Wastewater ...

  • Raising energy efficiency in a new materials economy - Part I

    The production, processing, and disposal of material in our modern throwaway economy wastes not only material but energy as well, thus producing unnecessary, climate-disrupting carbon dioxide emissions. In nature, one-way linear flows do not survive long. Nor, by extension, can they survive long in the expanding global economy. The throwaway economy that has been evolving over the last ...

  • Corus installs gem steam traps to improve energy conservation and reduce co2 emissions

    Corus’s Trostre Steel Works in Llanelli, South Wales has installed Thermal Energy International’s GEM Venturi orifice steam traps as part of the plant’s continuous improvement programme into energy conservation and CO2 reduction.  A leading supplier of high quality light gauge steels, the site produces over 400,000 tonnes a year of packaging steels for the UK market. As ...

  • Drosrite extensive on-site hot dross treatment tests

    DROSRITE is a salt-free process for the recovery of metal from dross. In addition to producing a salt-free residue, it does not produce any CO2 or NOx gases. The process is highly energy efficient, extracting heat from energy in the residue and, thus, it does not require an external heat source such as a plasma torch, an electric arc or a gas or oil burner. A DROSRITE pilot unit built by ...

  • Aluminum dross processing, Bahrain

    The Gulf region is the world’s fastest-growing aluminum smelting hub, expected to account for 10% of global production by 2010. Aluminum producers remain liable for the ultimate safe disposal of any waste material. Dross arises from aluminum smelting at a rate of approx 2% of production, and only 40% of the dross is recovered as metal. The remaining waste is hazardous and must be treated ...
