  • Analysis of reconstruction of the composition of liquid radioactive waste released into the Techa River in 19491956

    An analysis of archival data of liquid radioactive waste samples and Techa River bottom sediments was made, taking into consideration the radiochemical methods for extraction and beta-emitting radionuclide activity measurements existing in the early 1950s. It was stated that the radionuclide composition of the routine and accidental liquid radioactive waste releases in 19491951 corresponded to ...

  • Development of the technology for localisation and isolation from biosphere of outdoor liquid radwaste storage basins

    The approaches were proposed for localisation and isolation of outdoor liquid radwaste storage basins from the biosphere. The lab research findings showed immobilisation of radioactive sludges into a compound and drying-up of liquid phase using porous vitrocrystalline forms (VCF) using as example actual solid and liquid phases from the MCC's storage basins. The effectiveness of the radionuclide ...

  • Commissioning and operation of high level radioactive waste vitrification and storage facilities: the Indian experience

    In India, R&D work for management of high-level radioactive liquid waste (HLW) was started along with inception of the Indian Atomic Energy Programme. This culminated in the setting up of the first vitrification facility at the Waste Immobilisation Plant (WIP) at Tarapur. The second vitrification facility has been commissioned at WIP at Trombay and the third such facility is being set up at ...

  • 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 ...

  • Reduce accident and fire risk with flammable storage safety cans

    Flammable or combustible liquids are used in almost every industry and place of business. Gasoline, chemicals, solvents and a variety of other hazardous liquids are found in varying amounts and locations in industrial, commercial and residential settings. Since many of these liquids are relatively common, it is important to understand the dangers they present and the special storage and handling ...

  • 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 ...

  • Advanced Aboveground Storage Tank Inspections – In-Service Robotics Tank Inspections

    This paper describes the advanced in-service tank inspection methods available for use in the inspection of aboveground storage tanks (AST) in the petroleum and petrochemical industry. ASTs are subject to several federal and state regulations requiring tank owners to perform tank floor/bottom integrity, seals system, and deck fittings inspections on a routine basis. The conventional procedure for ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

    Since 1973 we are a part of environmentally friendly and economical shredding systems for all types of waste. Since 1973 MERCODOR GmbH Sondermaschinenbau KG (Special Products), Frankfurt/Main, The company’s shredding systems are used for the reduction of waste volume in various commercial and industrial applications, including hotels, hospitals, commercial kitchens and cruise ...

  • Turning waste into power

    Economic, social and environmental factors dictate the necessity to manage waste to a new level. Wastewater plants, landfills, farms and food plants are all the owners of biomass that can be digested to produce biogas and turned into power. Biogas can be burned directly in boilers for heat recovery and used for manufacturing, heating or cooling; this is the simplest method of direct biogas ...

  • Thermal deoilers - Thermal deoiling replaces liquid based degreasing

    The Problem A major Automotive company was mandated to have an alternate technology for degreasing evaporator fins. They had, until recently, been deoiling metal parts in a conveyorized solvent based vapor degreasing line, but the state environmental agency mandated that the line be shut down on a certain date due to the excessive water and air pollution it generated. The company had ...
