  • The smell of success. Odour management in sludge treatment

    Production of municipal solid waste (MSW) is increasing worldwide, although many – primarily industrialized - countries are making major efforts to cap that growth. In France, for example, MSW production has tripled over the past 25 years. In 2006, the country produced 30 million metric tonnes of municipal solid waste, with a substantial portion of this waste ending up in landfills. In keeping ...

  • The need for electronic noses for environmental odour exposure assessment

    This paper focuses on the opportunities for using electronic noses for odour exposure assessment purposes, especially in cases where dispersion modelling is not applicable. Such cases include, for instance, those sources where a detailed characterisation and quantification of the odour emissions for every hour of the simulation time domain is particularly difficult, due to the nature of the ...

  • Why high temperature combustion of landfill gas?

    Due to the accumulation of knowledge and the tightening of environmental law, the landfill technology has increasingly become concerned with the management of trace compounds in landfill gas. With landfill gas, contamination is through sulphur, chlorine, fluorine, halogenated hydrocarbons and heavy metals. Other trace elements such as volatile organic compounds (VOC), impose environmental ...

  • Status and strategies on solid waste management in Ho Chi Minh City

    As a result of rapid industrialisation and uncontrolled urbanisation, solid waste generation rate has increased significantly in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). At present, about 6000 tons of solid waste is generated daily from activities in HCMC. Meanwhile, solid waste management and disposal facilities have not reached to extent to satisfy the need. Solid waste is not sorted at the sources. Some ...

  • Greenstars portable monitoring for CHP and flares

    Greenstar’s award-winning KTK landfill site in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, is unusual in Ireland in that it has three gas engines feeding electricity to the grid and two flares. In Ireland, while flaring is common, engines are not. The flares are run in tandem with engines so that if an engine is ramped down for repair or service, the flare ramps up automatically. All are supplied by 122 ...

  • Putting the HAZOP to good use!

    The UK Chemical Industry has, for many years, appreciated the strategic use of Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) assessments in reducing the risks posed by their activities and sites. But what other industries can benefit from this approach? The landfill sector has just begun to demonstrate how the innovative use of the HAZOP assessment methodology can help underpin significant decisions on site ...

  • Treatment of leachate using the DMT MemBioRex® technology

    One of the most difficult waste waters to treat is leachate from a landfill. Leachate is water from the degrading waste and rainfall which percolates through the waste. Leachate usually contains a high concentration of ammonium, low concentrations of phosphor, high salinity, high alkalinity and various concentrations of heavy metals. Combined with strongly fluctuating flows, a high pH and ever ...
