  • Heavy metals in wet scrubber residue from a medium–sized (32 MW) municipal district heating plant incinerating wood and peat in a fluidised bed boiler

    Due to the low total concentrations of heavy metals and extractable compounds, it is recommended that the wet scrubber residue be used as a construction agent instead of being disposed of in landfills. According to five–stage sequential extraction, the highest concentrations of most of the heavy metals occurred in the residual fraction (i.e., HF + HNO3 + HCl), which means that ...

  • 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 ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant MSD of Buncombe County, NC

    The Metropolitan Sewerage District of Buncombe County was faced with high maintenance cost of existing equipment, poor reliability and increased incinerator cost. After extension research into dewatering options, it was determined that the most economical dewatering system was on-site dewatering with a belt filter press. BDP was the press of choice due to the 3DPTM belt filter press superior ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Zero landfill, zero waste: the greening of industry in Singapore

    This paper reviews how a land-scarce city-state is trying to achieve its goals of zero landfill and zero waste through the greening of industry. The main challenges Singapore confronts in its solid waste management are an increasing volume of industrial waste generated, a shortage of land for landfills, and escalating costs of incineration plants. To green its industries, there has been a ...

  • Study on cement mortar and concrete made with sewage sludge ash

    This study investigated the feasibility of reusing wastewater sludge ash in construction materials to replace partial materials. Wastewater sludge sampled from thermal power plant was burned into sludge ash at 800°C in the laboratory. The sludge incineration ash has low heavy metal including Pb, Cd, Cr and Cu, so it belongs to general enterprise waste. The chemical composition of sludge ...

  • Thermal hydrolysis, anaerobic digestion and dewatering of sewage sludge as a best first step in sludge strategy: full scale examples in large projects in the UK and strategic study including cost and carbon footprint.

    Abstract This paper shows that by using thermal hydrolysis process (THP) as a pre-treatment for anaerobic digestion (AD) it is possible to develop a step wise approach to sludge strategy that is cost effective and flexible. By generating a low volume of non odorous, well dewatered and safe digested cake it is possible to recycle sludge directly to agriculture or dry it for fuel use or ...
