  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...

  • Study on Hazardous Household Waste with a main Emphasis on Hazardous Chemicals

    Introduction The aim of this study is to evaluate national experiences of the management of hazardous products likely to become hazardous household waste (HHW), and to make proposals for strategies for the appropriate management of such products within a lifecycle perspective. The study covers the fifteen Member States and two Accession Countries, namely Hungary and Romania. The data available at ...

  • Enhanced waste-management practices reduce carbon emissions and support lower landfill taxes

    Landfill taxes and ‘enhanced waste management’ practices have been introduced to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill and to convert waste into useful products. This study investigated the interplay of these two policy options in Belgium, generating findings that could help Europe move towards a resource-efficient, circular economy. Landfill taxes and ‘enhanced waste ...

  • Reducing Odor and VOC Emissions

    The Montgomery County Regional Composting Facility (MCRCF) in Silver Spring, Maryland is designed to process 400 wet tons/day of lime amended biosolids from the Blue Plains Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Washington, D.C. Recently, political pressures forced operations to cease at the MCRCF. Although the aerated static pile composting plant’s fate has not been completely decided, its owner, ...

  • Excavation, Retrieval, and Off-Site Disposal

    Introduction: Contaminated material is removed and transported to permitted off-site treatment and/or disposal facilities. Some pretreatment of the contaminated media usually is required in order to meet land disposal restrictions. Confined disposal facilities (CDFs) are engineered structure enclosed by dikes and designed to retain dredged materials. A CDF may have a large cell for ...

  • 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 ...

  • Making MGP Wastes Beneficial

    More than 11 billion gallons of coal tar were generated at MGP sites in the United States from 1816 to 1947. The types and quantities of waste discharged to surface waters from MGPs vary from site to site, and the disposition of several billion gallons is unknown and remains unaccounted for. Numerous locations in the United States have sediments and soils contaminated with wastes generated from ...

  • The Whole Plant Approach to Air Emission Modeling for NESHAP Compliance

    ABSTRACTLong overlooked, the air emissions associated with biological treatment of process wastewaters continue to be further scrutinized and regulated. The common approach is to utilize EPA’s Water9 as a model to present findings and support permitting activities. It is essential when using a model that not only is the facility modeled appropriately, but also that the specific compound ...

  • Proposed boiler MACT sets aggressive emission limits

    On June 4, 2010, U.S. EPA proposed National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters at both major and area sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions.  EPA proposed separate rules for units at major sources of HAP emissions (greater than 10 tons per year [tpy] of any single HAP and/or greater ...

  • Green remediation best management practices: site investigation

    Overview The need for site investigation is common to cleanups under any regulatory program. An investigation can occur at all points in the cleanup process, from initial site assessment through waste site closeout. A site investigation generally is undertaken to: Confirm the presence or absence of specific contaminants Delineate the nature and extent of environmental contamination ...

  • EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016

    1 Guidebook Introduction 1.1 Introduction The joint EMEP (1)/EEA Air Pollutant Emission Inventory Guidebook (the 'Guidebook'), following the 'Guidelines for Reporting Emissions and Projections Data' under the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP) (2), provides concise guidance on how ...

  • EPA Proposes Revisions to RCRA Definition of Solid Waste

    On June 30, 2011, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson signed a proposed rule seeking to narrow certain recycling exemptions under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act's (RCRA) "Definition of Solid Waste" (DSW) provisions. The rule should be published in the Federal Register within the next two weeks. A pre-publication copy of the rule and related ...

  • Talking Trash: The world`s waste management problem

    Trash is a pervasive but unnoticed part of our lives. The great irony of waste management is that even the most efficient and well-run waste collection programs remain out of sight, ignored by the public that they serve. Only with failure does the omnipresence of trash really come to light. Today, many nations face a looming waste management crisis, as their landfills reach capacity and continue ...

  • Making wet waste destruction a sustainable reality

    Irish environmental company SCFI was supported by the European Union’s Eco-Innovation initiative in a project to build a portable unit to demonstrate its innovative AquaCritox wet waste treatment technology. This White Paper describes the science behind hydrothermal oxidation (HTO) as a waste treatment methodology and its potential across a range of industrial applications, which is now, ...

  • Removal of Radioactive Effluent Waste from Uranium Enrichments Plants

    In an effort to reduce greenhouse emissions many nations and multi-national corporations are once again focusing on the development of safe radioactive sources for energy generation. After a hiatus of some 20 years commercial nuclear power plants are being developed globally to satisfy increasing global energy demands. Whether for generation of electrical power or in the production of fission ...

  • Anaerobic digestion as integrated part of a mechanical-biological Waste treatment process

    Anaerobic digestion as a means of stabilising residual municipal solid waste (RMSW) before landfilling was evaluated to study the stabilization of RMSW through mechanical-biological processes and evaluate the effect on landfills. The tests were at the site of WGV Recycling GmbH in Quarzbichl between September 1995 and March 1996. The trials, which were run with a single-phase anaerobic digester, ...
