  • BT-Wolfgang binder erected new glass powder plant for Geocell for the production of foam glass ballast in upper Austria

    The planning, delivery and installation of the complete machine and electro engineering equipment for the glass powder plant from the company GEOCELL, one of the leading producers of foam glass ballast in Europe, was carried out by the company BT-Wolfgang Binder GmbH from Gleisdorf, as general contractor. Initial situation: Before construction of the plant, the glass powder was ...

  • A study on PbO in CRT funnel glass at high–temperature condition

    Glasses from the end–of–life Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) represent a pressing environmental problem, especially the funnel glass containing high lead concentration. To avoid lead contamination and re–utilise it, it is of great importance to study the separation process of lead contained in the funnel glass. In this study, the microstructure of scrap funnel glass and molten funnel glass were analysed ...

  • Effect of silver-doped phosphate-based glasses on bacterial biofilm growth

    Silver-containing phosphate-based glasses were found to reduce the growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus biofilms, which are leading causes of nosocomial infections. The rates of glass degradation (1.27 to 1.41 µg·mm–2·h–1) and the corresponding silver release were found to account for the variation in biofilm growth ...

  • Sewage sludge ash characteristics and potential for use in bricks, tiles and glass ceramics

    The characteristics of sewage sludge ash (SSA) and its use in ceramic applications pertaining to bricks, tiles and glass ceramics have been assessed using the globally published literature in the English medium. It is shown that SSA possesses similar chemical characteristics to established ceramic materials and under heat treatment achieves the targeted densification, strength increases and ...

  • The limits to growth and 'finite' mineral resources: re–visiting the assumptions and drinking from that half–capacity glass

    The famous 1972 study 'Limits to growth' (LtG) created global controversy about its dire predictions for the 21st century - e.g., global population crash, rampant pollution and resource depletion. Amongst some of the most fervent critics was the mining industry, who argued that mineral-metals are easily recyclable, that exploration and new technology can increase known resources, and that price ...

  • Sample Handling Strategies for Accurate Lead-In-Soil Measurements in the Field and Laboratory

    ABSTRACT The inhomogenous lead-in-soil matrix can present serious obstacles to accurate sample collection and handling. In typical lead-in-soil measurement, particle size related errors in sampling and sample handling often exceed all other sources of error. The magnitude of error can vary widely depending on the particulate nature of the lead contaminant and the effectiveness of control ...

  • Modified crab shell particles for the removal of lead[II] ions from aqueous solutions

    The ability of crab shell particles to remove lead[II] was evaluated in a batch reactor and in a fixed–bed column. The binding of lead[II] by crab shell was found to be affected significantly by pH, with maximum sorption capacity 714 mg/g observed at pH 4. The sorption isotherm of lead[II] on crab shell particles was modelled by the application of Langmuir followed by Sips, Redlich–Peterson and ...
