  • Combustion Of Heavy Fuels And Liquid Wastes

    This paper describes the design and operating conditions of liquid and gas combustors for heavy fuels and liquid wastes. Lower fuel prices can be achieved by switching from light oil to heavy ones, or combining with unconventional waste fuels. Unconventional waste fuels such as energetic off gases and organic liquid waste require especially designed combustion equipment like a special combustor ...

  • Liquid waste off-gas treatment - Case Study

    Application Biffa Waste Services operate a major waste disposal site at Kilsyth in Scotland where they handle many types of industrial liquid effluent. This can give rise to a range of emissions from both the tank farm and the road tanker deliveries. In addition, significant NO2 and nitric acid fume releases can arise from process upset conditions. ERG provided an emergency NO2 ...

  • Experiences with anaerobic treatment of fat-containing food waste liquids: two full scale studies with a novel anaerobic flotation reactor

    Fat-containing food waste can be effectively treated in a new type of reactor, the so-called BIOPAQ-Anaerobic Flotation Reactor or BIOPAQ® anaerobic flotation reactor (AFR). In the reactor a flotation unit is integrated to retain the sludge. In this study results from two plants with a 430 and 511 m3-AFR, respectively, are presented. In one reactor, which is fed with water ...

  • Membrane treatment of liquid wastes from radiological decontamination operations

    The paper focuses on the evaluation of membrane filtration for the treatment of liquid radioactive streams generated in area decontamination operations. In this work, semi-permeable membranes were demonstrated to be effective reducing the volume of wastewater containing cesium and cobalt by two orders of a magnitude. The efficiency of membrane separation was enhanced by employing additives that ...

  • Treatment Alternatives for Liquid Penetrant Rinse Waters

    Explores the options available to process wastewater generated from liquid penetrant inspection. Rinse waters containing residues from the penetrant inspection process are generated from all but Method C (solvent removal).  The rinse water contains penetrants (Method A), or penetrants and emulsifier (Methods B and D), which contain oils and surfactants.  The water may also contain ...

  • 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 ...

  • Production of propionic acid-enriched volatile fatty acids from co-fermentation liquid of sewage sludge and food waste using Propionibacterium acidipropionici

    Volatile fatty acids (VFA), derived from sludge fermentation, have been used as one effective carbon source for biological nutrient removal, especially favorable with VFA containing with high levels of propionic acid. In this paper, a new fermentation method was employed to significantly produce the propionic acid-enriched VFA from the co-fermentation liquid of sewage sludge and food waste: ...

  • Biotreatment of waste gas containing pyridine in a novel rotating rope biofilter

    A novel Rotating Rope Biofilter (RRB) has been developed especially for the treatment of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) at higher loadings and characterised by high volatility along with high water solubility. The RRB provides a higher interfacial area (per unit reactor liquid volume) along with high oxygen mass transfer rate, greater microbial culture stability, and consequently higher ...

  • The effect of quench on Quantitating Alpha Radionuclides by Liquid Scintillation Counting

    Detecting and quantitating alpha emitting radionuclides are routine tasks in nuclear energy and environmental monitoring. For this purpose, liquid scintillation counting (LSC) is an excellent method because alphas are counted with nearly 100% counting efficiency with low backgrounds, even with severe quenching. Quenching agents such as inorganic acids, organic acids, and extractive scintillators ...
