  • 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 ...

  • AVA Technology for Hazardous Waste Treatment - Case Study

    AVA has developed systems for pre-treating hazardous waste prior to incineration, which leads to higher throughput performance in combination with lower construction and maintenance costs and additional low pollution emissions, in comparison to conventional techniques. The system is based on the principal that constant gross calorific values and regular piece sizes together with consistency of ...

  • Are incineration and landfills the answer to save us from the recycling crisis?

    For plastic recycling, this year hasn’t exactly been one of the best – what is to blame? Oil. Shockingly, it actually costs more to recycle old plastic than it does to make new in many ways. Petroleum prices have fallen so low, as low as 70% below the level in June 2014. This may be great for some – however with it has fallen the cost of Virgin Plastic which is made from ...

  • Guidance on Hazardous Waste Rules Issued Amid Delays to New Regime

    Technical guidance on how to interpret the new EU definition of hazardous waste has been published by the Environment Agency to help industry navigate a course through a bewildering range of semi-implemented EU law. 1 The new system, soon to replace the UK's 'special waste' regime, will significantly increase the range of wastes falling under special controls, but regulations paving the way for ...

  • Zero Waste - Zero Waste - Zero Waste

    The Planning Group of the Zero waste International Alliance defines zero waste as: “Zero waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for other use.” I recently posted this question on ...

  • Toxins Found in E-Waste

    One of the worst effects of a skyrocketing, global e-waste crisis is the risk of toxic contamination for the environment and communities. In fact, delving into the many chemical and heavy metal materials that make up most electronic devices, it seems that toxins and electronics go hand in hand. Though many manufacturers of electronic devices are finding innovative ways to work around toxins found ...

  • Environmental Sensors in Waste Management

    Issue: As part of an increasing sentiment among European consumers that environmental protection is important, concern about the impact of landfill is growing. Sensor technology makes it possible to measure and control inputs to landfill sites and pollutants arising from them. However, the exploitation - or uptake - of such technology has been lower than expected in the waste management sector. ...


  • 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 ...

  • Workshop Proceedings: QUOVADIS Waste-to-Fuel Conversion? A Thinkshop

    Waste incineration practices are currently being diversified and optimised in terms of the efficiency of the recovery of the energy embedded in the waste. One of these tendencies is the conversion of non-hazardous waste into an adequate form for utilisation in an efficient combustion process. The fact that Directive 2000/76/EC on the incineration of waste (WID) now covers both incineration and ...

  • Questions and answers on the Commission Communication `Towards a Circular Economy` and the Waste Targets Review

    What is a circular economy? A circular economy preserves the value added in products for as long as possible and virtually eliminates waste. It retains the resources within the economy when a product has reached the end of its life, so that they remain in productive use and create further value. It may involve: Increasing the time products deliver their service before ...
