  • 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 ...

  • Decontamination of a natural multicomponent aqueous liquid waste by titania photocatalysis

    The aerobic photocatalytic degradation of municipal dump-site leachate at 300 K has been carried out in a pilot-scale bubble column reactor. The leachate feed is a complex mixture of various organics and nitrogenous compounds. Runs were performed over a 48-hour period at atmospheric pressure. Compositional analysis of aliquots from the reactor revealed simultaneous total organic carbon removal ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Nonaqueous Phase Liquids Compatibility with Materials Used in Well Construction, Sampling, and Remediation

    The EPA Regional Ground Water Forum is a group of EPA professionals representing Regional Superfund and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Offices (RCRA), committed to the identification and resolution of ground-water issues impacting the remediation of Superfund and RCRA sites. The Forum is supported by and advises the Superfund Technical Support Project. The compatibility of remediation, ...

  • Waste Management Overview

    Introduction Our Nation has entered an era in which, as a result of changing world conditions, nuclear weapons production is receiving less attention while the public is expressing increasing concern about protecting human health and preserving the quality of our environment. In response to this national concern, the Department of Energy (DOE) has made waste cleanup and environmental restoration ...

  • Impact of Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs) on Groundwater Remediation

    Nonaqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs) are immiscible (undissolved) hydrocarbons in the subsurface that exhibit different behavior and properties than dissolved contaminant plumes. NAPLs have a tremendous impact on the remediation of contaminated aquifers, as it is very difficult or impossible to remove all of the NAPL from a hazardous waste site once released to the subsurface. Although many NAPL ...


  • Mixed waste composting trends

    It's been about 25 years since vendors started marketing systems to process mixed municipal solid waste via composting in the U.S. Today, there are 13 plants, most fulfilling their niche in the communities they serve - whether managing MSW in high tourism areas, or processing residual organics from materials recovery facilities. Table 1 provides summary data on the 13 facilities. While we did not ...
