  • Incineration

    Introduction: High temperatures, 870 to 1,200 °C (1,400 to 2,200 °F), are used to volatilize and combust (in the presence of oxygen) halogenated and other refractory organics in hazardous wastes. Often auxiliary fuels are employed to initiate and sustain combustion. The destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) for properly operated incinerators exceeds the 99.99% requirement for hazardous waste ...

  • Hazardous Waste Incineration Slag Optimisation by Additives

     Abstract Rotary kiln incineration combined with the disposal of residual slag on landfills defined by German landfill regulations is the most acceptable treatment for hazardous waste with respect to the environment. The objective of research is to optimize the elution behavior of HWI-slag. Quality-improved slags may be disposed off on cheaper landfill sites still applying to the landfill ...


  • Waste co-incineration in the European Community, is the sky the limit?

    The co-combustion of waste in industrial furnaces -co-incineration- attracts considerable interest in the European Community, because of the combination of perceived business incentives, regulatory developments, and the slate of available technological options. It was found, however, that EU-regulation developed to ensure safe and environmentally acceptable processing of waste represents a clear ...

  • Municipal solid waste: alternative source of energy to the cement kilns in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India

    Rapid urbanisation has resulted in large–scale municipal solid waste (MSW) generation in India. Scientific and environment friendly disposal of MSW is a challenge for the municipal local bodies. A survey has been conducted regarding municipal solid waste generation from 342 local bodies in the State of Madhya Pradesh. Total generation of the MSW in the State is estimated around 4,500 MT/day ...

  • Waste incineration in cement plants: constraints and development opportunities (a French-German comparison)

    Is it possible to reconcile economic and ecological concerns? This article examines, through a French-German comparison, the case of obtaining a calorific value for wastes used as substitute fuels in cement kilns. On the one hand, this new strategy for obtaining needed inputs offers to the cement industry an economic opportunity for lowering production costs (the main determinant of ...

  • 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 STIEFEL project UTO Uvrier case study

    The waste incineration plant UTO Uvrier is situated in the south western part of Switzerland. The Association which controls the plant was established in 1969 and treats waste from 44 municipalities with a combined population of 170,000 inhabitants. The principal task of UTO Uvrier is the thermal heat recovery from urban and industrial waste. Apart from this, UTO also treats other types of waste ...

  • Performance Test Results of the Macrotek Flooded Disc MVA Scrubber

    Fundamental design principals of the flooded disc scrubber - a variable throat orifice contactor are presented. Test data from the pilot demonstration unit and full scale operations on lime kiln, refining furnace, and incinerator applications are presented and compared. Conclusions are that performance on a given application is a function of pressure drop and particle size distribution. In ...

  • Thermal Treatment Technologies

    Hot gas decontamination: Hot gas decontamination is a technology still in the pilot-scale of development that can be used for decontamination of explosives-contaminated masonry or metallic structures. The method involves sealing and insulating the structures, heating with hot gas stream to 260 °C (500 °F) for a prescribed period of time, volatilizing the explosive contaminants, and destroying ...

  • Recycling Options for Mixed Plastics in Automotive Shredder Residues

    Waste production (ASR) from shredding of automobiles is a major global problem. The current method of disposal via landfilling is unacceptable due to environmental concerns and high cost. This project focuses on the evaluation of competing technologies for recycling automotive shredder residues and in helping solve this industrial problem by analyzing feasible solutions for implementation. The ...


  • Towards a complete recycling of phosphorus in wastewater treatment – options in Germany

    Global reserves of mineral phosphorus are finite and the recycling of phosphorus from wastewater, a significant sink for phosphorus, can contribute to a more sustainable use. In Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, an increasing percentage of municipal sewage sludge is incinerated and the contained phosphorus is lost. This paper reviews current technologies and shows that a complete ...

  • Increasing the sludge energy potential of wastewater treatment plants by introducing fine mesh sieves for primary treatment

    The objective of this study was to compare some basic characteristics of sludge from fine mesh sieves (sieve sludge) with sludge from primary clarifiers (primary sludge) regarding their energy potential with a focus on anaerobic digestion and/or incineration. Nineteen samples of sludge from fine mesh sieve plants (most of them without fine screens and grit chambers as pre-treatment) and 10 ...
