  • 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 ...

  • How big is the distributed energy opportunity for water and wastewater utilities?

    Energy costs for water utilities are large, and growing Energy is a significant cost for many water utilities, and costs are growing as more energy-intensive forms of water supply, including desalination, are being used. Energy is typically the second-largest utility budget item in developed countries, after labour. In many developing countries, energy can account for 70% or even more, of ...

  • Waste materials are an underused resource the construction of Europe`s roads

    Recycled waste material could play a major role in the construction of roads in Europe, bringing both environmental and economic benefits. A new study proposes a scenario where 50% of the asphalt for Europe's roads consists of recycled materials, leading to significant reductions in costs, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. According to the European Waste Framework Directive, there is a ...

  • Incineration Industry: Scrubber on Sludge Incinerator Reduces Atmospheric Emissions Case Study

    Aberdeen Sewage Treatment Plant in Aberdeen, Washington started up their new Electric Infrared Incinerator in May, 1981. The sewage sludge incinerator, product of Shirco, Inc., needed a pollution control device in order to meet state, local and federal requirements for atmospheric emissions, according to the emissions test on the unit performed January, 1982. Chosen was a Model 24×24- ...

  • Minicipal Waste Incinerator Case History

    Low temperature plant operation had resulted in severe baghouse corrosion and constant dust blockages throughout the system. It was decided to raise the operational temperature of the incinerator and change the acid gas scrubbing agent from lime to sodium bicarbonate. However, the existing felt filter media could not cope with the change in acid gas scrubbing agent and “blinded” very rapidly ...

  • Atmospheric impact of a municipal wastes incinerator

    This paper presents a case study of an air pollution dispersion model for the atmospheric impact assessment of a new municipal wastes incinerator (MWI). The capacity of the present MWI will increase more than ten times, and a new high-efficiency flue gas treatment system is projected. The environmental impact study has been focused on the long-term aspect of the air pollution (chronic pollution) ...

  • Pollutant emissions from modern incinerators

    Emissions of dioxins are mainly from incinerators, domestic and industrial coal combustion, and traffic. However, the major public concern and research effort are associated with the emissions of organic micropollutants from waste incinerators. This paper gives a brief overview of the more recent research and development for the removal of dioxins and heavy metals from flue-gas streams. Special ...

  • A Comparison of Fluid Bed and Multiple Hearth Biosolids Incineration

    Abstract Incineration has been used as a disposal method for wastewater treatment biosolids for over sixty years. The first multiple hearth furnace for biosolids incineration was built in 1935 in Dearborn, MI. From that time through the late sixties, the multiple hearth was the thermal technique of choice for biosolids disposal. Today there are still some 150-175 aging multiple hearths in ...
