  • 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 ...

  • Case study - Mobile remediation system

    OVERVIEW A large consulting and contracting firm owns and operates several ex-situ Thermal Desorption Units (TDUs). Each single-load Thermal Desorption Unit has the capacity of desorbing 15 tons of soil per hour at a temperature of 400°F - 900°F. These Thermal Desorber Units have been designed to operate on both chlorinated and non-chlorinated RCRA, CERCLA, and private industry ...

  • New laser-based dust emission monitoring system

    Abstract A new generation of continuous particulate matter concentration monitoring instruments is presented, covering a measuring range of 0 to 1000 mg/m3. The laser-based scattered light instrument gives an improved stability as well as excellent resolution in the low range. This enables high concentration measurement as well as especially low emission monitoring down to 0.01 mg/m3 with a ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Identifying energy and carbon footprint optimization potentials of a sludge treatment line with Life Cycle Assessment

    This study exemplifies the use of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a tool to quantify the environmental impacts of processes for wastewater treatment. In a case study, the sludge treatment line of a large wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) is analysed in terms of cumulative energy demand and the emission of greenhouse gases (carbon footprint). Sludge treatment consists of anaerobic digestion, ...

  • EPA proposes updates to CISWI rules

    On June 4, 2010, the U.S. EPA proposed updates to the Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources (NSPS) for Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration (CISWI) Units (NSPS Subpart CCCC) and Emission Guidelines (EG) for Existing CISWI Units (EG Subpart DDDD), collectively referred to as the "CISWI Rules." In order to describe the proposed updates to the CISWI Rules, it is necessary ...

  • Flux force condensation scrubbing

    Flux force condensation scrubbing technology is used to capture fine (submicron) particulate at extremely high efficiency. It is a preferred method when using wet scrubbing to collect and control dioxins from combustion sources. As an added benefit, through the use of condensation, the water vapor plume commonly associated with a wet scrubbing system can be effectively eliminated. The overall ...

  • Tri-NOx Multi-Chem Wet Scrubber. Case Study of Our NOx Scrubber in a Plastics Resin Plant.

    As part of a commitment to reduce airborne emissions – or even the threat of such emissions – the Mt. Vernon, IN plant of GE Plastics has installed a NOx scrubber. When such GE Plastics products as Ultem resins are produced, nitric acid is used, and emissions from this step are tightly controlled. But to address upset conditions, the company opted to install an emergency scrubber that can treat ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Fuels in Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Common treatment technologies for fuels in soil, sediment, and sludge include biodegradation, incineration, SVE, and low temperature thermal desorption. Incineration is typically used when chlorinated SVOCs are also present with fuel, and not specified for fuel-only contaminated soil, sediment, or sludge. All types of biodegradation, both in situ or ex situ, can be used to remediate soils: ...

  • Pyrolysis

    Introduction: Pyrolysis is formally defined as chemical decomposition induced in organic materials by heat in the absence of oxygen. In practice, it is not possible to achieve a completely oxygen-free atmosphere; actual pyrolytic systems are operated with less than stoichiometric quantities of oxygen. Because some oxygen will be present in any pyrolytic system, nominal oxidation will occur. If ...
