  • Analysis of land application as a method of disposal for distillery effluent

    Distillery companies in the Philippines produce high-strength wastewater that pollutes the waterways of the country. The implementation of a comprehensive water pollution control programme of these companies in order to comply with the regulations of the government through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) requires a large investment. Non-compliance, on the other hand, ...

  • Waste Disposal

    Introduction The final step in the waste management process is waste disposal, the permanent isolation of waste. Some wastes can be managed and disposed safely with existing facilities and proven methods. Other Department of Energy (DOE) wastes require more complex disposal facilities. DOE has conducted extensive research into alternative waste disposal methods and has concluded that deep ...

  • Survey of Wastes Spread on Land

    In the context of the European Community Waste Management Policy (Commission of the EC 1996), the Directorate-General Environment has commissioned WRc, in collaboration with SEDE France and REI Italy, to undertake a survey on industrial wastes spread on land which covers the fifteen Member States of the European Union. This is the final report for the study which began in January 2000. There are ...


  • Excavation, Retrieval, and Off-Site Disposal

    Introduction: Contaminated material is removed and transported to permitted off-site treatment and/or disposal facilities. Some pretreatment of the contaminated media usually is required in order to meet land disposal restrictions. Confined disposal facilities (CDFs) are engineered structure enclosed by dikes and designed to retain dredged materials. A CDF may have a large cell for ...

  • Biosolids Applied to Land: Advancing Standards and Practices

    Summary Wastewater treatment in the United States is a major cornerstone of efforts to keep the nation’s waters clean. Sewage sludge is the solid, semisolid, or liquid residue generated during treatment of domestic sewage. Since the early 1970s, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the wastewater treatment industry have promoted recycling of sewage sludge. With the prohibition of ...

  • Enhancing chemical management within the framework of existing TSCA regulations

    Since its promulgation in 1976, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), which is administered by EPA, has focused on human health and the environment, with the overarching goals of evaluating risks and assessing human health and environmental effects before a chemical is introduced into commerce. In May 2010, EPA added 6,300 chemicals and 3,800 facilities to the Envirofacts database, which is ...

  • Erosion and Sediment Control: Navigating NPDES Regulations, the SWPPP, and Techniques for Compliance

    Erosion and Sedimentation: Why Are They a Problem? The US Environmental Protection Agency lists sediment as the single most common pollutant in rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs. With all the potentially harmful chemicals and substances in the world, it seems odd to many people that sediment—dirt, essentially—is singled out as the major culprit. Yet these particles of ...

  • Industry leading drilling fluid dewatering

    The drilling industry is regulated by a myriad of environmental regulations that protect our air, water, and land resources. As these regulations continue to evolve, so too must the technologies utilized by the drilling industry. Though lowering compliance costs is always a worthy initiative, incorporating technology that also enhances the drilling process by improving down-hole conditions and ...

  • Siting MSW landfills with a weighted linear combination methodology in a GIS environment

    Landfill has been taken to the bottom of the hierarchy of options for waste disposal but has been the most used method for urban solid waste disposal. However, landfill has become more difficult to implement because of its increasing cost, community opposition, and more restrictive regulations regarding the siting and operation of landfills. Land is a finite and scarce resource that needs to be ...

  • Landfill site selection by using geographic information systems

    Abstract  One of the serious and growing potential problems in most large urban areas is the shortage of land for waste disposal. Although there are some efforts to reduce and recover the waste, disposal in landfills is still the most common method for waste destination. An inappropriate landfill site may have negative environmental, economic and ecological impacts. Therefore, it should be ...


  • Composting dairy solids with the ac composter

    In October, ECS began conducting trials at California State University Fresno to explore using the new patent pending AC Composter system to manage dairy manure solids and comply with air-quality standards. A two-zone portable pilot system was delivered by ECS and installed at the CSUF's research dairy. This research is being conducted with funds from a USDA Small Business Innovative Research ...

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

    The most commonly used treatment technologies for inorganics in soil, sediment, and sludge include solidification/stabilization (S/S), excavation and off-site disposal, and acid extraction. These treatment technologies are described briefly below. Solidification processes produce monolithic blocks of waste with high structural integrity. The contaminants do not necessarily interact chemically ...

  • 2005 Benchmark Survey of Corporate Sustainability Reporting in Canada

    Gravimetric and chemical treatment with land-farm application discharge had significant design shortcomings during routine process upsets, becoming under-sized as production increased, or as heavy rainfall resulted in uncontrolled storm runoff of the wastewater. API O/W/S technology certainly can’t be expected to be deployed effectively for remote oil and gas fields or offshore sites produced ...

  • Evaluation of the biosolids compost maturity in south Isfahan wastewater treatment plant

    As a promising alternative for biosolids disposal, land application of composted biosolids has increased in the past decade (Goldstein and Steuteville, 1996). One of the important factors affecting the successful use of biosolids compost for agricultural purposes is stability and maturity it. Application of unstable or immature compost may cause slow plant growth and damage crops by competing for ...

  • Legal lookout: competing coal ash proposals

    Depending upon comments the EPA gathers, industry may have to or not have to close out their coal ash containment ponds within five years. On May 4, 2010, EPA issued its long-awaited proposal to manage coal ash – the byproduct of burning coal to generate power. The agency proposed two quite different approaches for regulating coal ash, somewhat to the consternation of critics, who had hoped ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Halogenated SVOCs in Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Common treatment technologies for halogenated SVOCs in soil, sediment, and sludge include biodegradation, dehalogenation, incineration, and excavation with off-site disposal. All types of biodegradation, both in situ or ex situ, can be considered to remediate soils: in situ bioremediation, bioventing, composting, controlled solid phase, or landfarming. Slurry phase biological treatment is also ...

  • Management of Hazardous Wastes

    ' Management of hazardous waste is a growing concern in many countries. The long-term impacts and costs of improper disposal can be very high and the emphasis must be on prevention. A comprehensive management system should include (i) policies, institutions and effective regulations and (ii) adequate and acceptable disposal facilities (either public or private). This note outlines the key ...

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

    Unlike organic contaminants (and similar to metals), radionuclides cannot be destroyed or degraded; therefore, remediation technologies applicable to radionuclides involve separation, concentration/volume reduction, and/or immobilization. The most commonly used treatment technology for radionuclides in soil, sediment, and sludge is solidification/stabilization (S/S). This treatment technology is ...
