  • 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 ...

  • Development of wet pre-treatment and pulper technology

    Since 1984 BTA is involved in activities in the area of waste pre-treatment. This process was first implemented in 1986 in a pilot plant. The patented BTA-Process is consisting of the following main steps: - Wet pre-treatment of waste with separation of the contaminants and production of a pumpable suspension- Sand separation by a hydrodynamic grit removal system- Digestion of the suspension in ...

  • A STIEFEL project KVA Linthgebiet Niederurnen case study

    The waste incineration plant KVA Linthgebiet is situated in Switzerland. The plant disposes of a total of 120’000 tons of waste each year from 240‘000 inhabitants in the surrounding area. Due to the thermal recovery, it produces annually 84 GWhour of electrical energy and therefore saves 250’000 litres of fuel oil by providing energy to a district heating system. Background ...

  • Transportation of digested sludges over extreme distances

    Sludge is a residual product of sewage treatment that, as a rule, is digested and concentrated. In larger processing plants, it is dehydrated, partially dried and subsequently utilised in other processes. This usually takes the form of incineration and subsequent use as an additive to building materials by the cement industry. In the sewage treatment plant (STP) of the local authorities ...

  • Time to address the air pollution control residue problem

    The incineration of municipal solid waste is gaining increasing importance in the UK, especially as the burning of waste can be used to generate energy, providing a more sustainable solution to our waste problem by diverting it from landfill sites. An issue with incineration is that some of our waste contains hazardous chemicals such as chlorine and lead which are volatilised during the process. ...

  • Quality standards of the output fractions after the material specific treatment

    The modern era of waste management did not begin in Germany until the mid-1960s. At that time the federal government established the legal basis for proper waste disposal which designated local communities responsible for the disposal of waste. In October 1965 the “Central Office for Waste Disposal” was founded by the federal government and the states (BILITEWSKI et al. 1997). Until the end of ...

  • Rest or mixed waste sorting-digestion-separation for the recovery of recyclables and energy

    Source separate collection of biowaste has been implemented in many countries in Europe, especially in the German- speaking countries and the Benelux. By separating the biowaste fraction, a waste fraction called rest waste or grey waste is left over. This fraction is in most instances landfilled or incinerated. However, rest waste still contains a considerable amount of organics (up to 65%) which ...

  • Cement Manufacturing - Balancing Growth with Air Quality Requirements

    In most areas of the U.S., it appears that the recession is a bad memory and the signs of recovery are all around us. As described by the Portland Cement Association (PCA) on its website[1], “following the strongest cement consumption gains in seven (7) years in 2012, cement consumption growth will continue in 2013 with a 6.2% increase.” PCA continues to explain that “the ...

  • Stop trashing the climate

    In June, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) joined with Eco-Cycle and the Global Anti-Incinerator Alliance (GAIA) to release Stop Trashing the Climate, a report documenting the link between climate change and unsustainable patterns of consumption and wasting. Authored by Brenda Platt of ILSR, with coauthors Eric Lombardi of Eco-Cycle (Boulder, Colorado) and Dave Ciplet of GAIA, the ...

  • `Making good earth better` goal of waste-to-resource firm

    “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Nowhere is that more true than in northern Ohio, where a long-established waste-to-resource company is turning everything from demolition and construction waste and sewage sludge into products that homeowners and businesses can use to spruce up their properties. “I can’t believe what we do,” enthuses Diane Kurtzman, a spokesperson for Kurtz Bros. Inc., ...

  • Government to invest GBP£70m in green facilities

    The Mayor of London has announced the government's intentions to invest GBP£70 million in the development of low-carbon waste and recycling facilities in the capital. This could potentially create hundreds of jobs in engineering and construction, as several biomass, incineration sites and recycling centres for food and plants will be built; saving the capital millions of pounds, according ...

  • Blazing the plastics recycling trail

    In the past year, MBA Polymers has opened two facilities showcasing its high-tech recycling process for plastics from end-of-life durable goods. Those plants, in China and Austria, are just the beginning for this plastics recycling pioneer; over the next two years, the company is hoping to announce at least one additional facility in Europe as well as the development of another operation in Asia. ...

  • Thermal recycling of spent grains – residue becomes resources

    Introduction – the History of Beer The origin of beer was a happy coincidence: In the fourth millennium BC, the Sumarians discovered the fermentation process. The country of the Sumarians, called Mesopotamia, was located between the Euphrates and the Tigris. The Sumarians wanted to help an ill person swallow some bread, so and they soaked a piece in water. They simply forgot the bread in ...

  • Zero waste in Buenos Aires (Argentina)

    In late 2005, the City Council in Buenos Aires, Argentina unanimously passed a law, “Integral Management Of Solid Urban Waste,” a Zero Waste law. The law sets goals and milestones to reduce the volume of municipal solid waste going to landfill disposal. “The first milestone is 30 percent reduction of waste to landfill by 2010,” says Cecilia Allen of Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives' ...
