mobile waste incinerator Articles

  • Incineration

    Introduction: High temperatures, 870 to 1,200 °C (1,400 to 2,200 °F), are used to volatilize and combust (in the presence of oxygen) halogenated and other refractory organics in hazardous wastes. Often auxiliary fuels are employed to initiate and sustain combustion. The destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) for properly operated incinerators exceeds the 99.99% requirement for hazardous waste ...

  • Artificial carbonation for controlling the mobility of critical elements in bottom ash

    In municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI), bottom ash, generated at a stoker grate type incinerator, the critical elements were identified in terms of EU regulation. The stabilizing effect of moderate carbonation (pH 8.28 ± 0.03) on critical contaminants was studied through availability and diffusion leaching protocols. Data from the performed tests were evaluated with the goal of reusing MSWI ...

  • Mobile Stationary Source Emissions Testing, Coming to a Facility Near You?

    Last week, Antea Group had the unique opportunity to perform a RATA (relative accuracy test audit) of the emissions from a thermal oxidizer at an ethanol production facility located in Minnesota using a state-of-the-art mobile testing laboratory. During this RATA audit, actual stack emissions levels (including NOx, SOx, CO2, CO, O2, flow rate, temperature, velocity and pressure) from the ...

  • Tackling waste in the sands of the Sahara

    When gas was discovered in the mid Sahara areas of North Africa in the 1990s Andy Ive was asked by BP to help set up the water and waste infrastructure for what amounted to four small towns 600 km into the desert. No local infrastructure at all existed for the waste and water to be produced by 2-3000 workers. IVE overcame sandstorms, extreme heat, poisonous snakes and patented a novel solution to ...

  • Environmental Sensors in Waste Management

    Issue: As part of an increasing sentiment among European consumers that environmental protection is important, concern about the impact of landfill is growing. Sensor technology makes it possible to measure and control inputs to landfill sites and pollutants arising from them. However, the exploitation - or uptake - of such technology has been lower than expected in the waste management sector. ...


  • Study on Hazardous Household Waste with a main Emphasis on Hazardous Chemicals

    Introduction The aim of this study is to evaluate national experiences of the management of hazardous products likely to become hazardous household waste (HHW), and to make proposals for strategies for the appropriate management of such products within a lifecycle perspective. The study covers the fifteen Member States and two Accession Countries, namely Hungary and Romania. The data available at ...

  • Is Waste Going to be Our Apocalypse Without a Noah’s Ark to Save Us?

    Human beings have been dumping waste in water, including the ocean, since before the Agricultural Age. The Industrial Age brought with it new materials to dump, chemical wastes and by-products. Some materials are dumped into rivers and find their way to the ocean by running downstream. Other materials are dumped directly into the ocean from boats. Plastic is a harmful pollutant that does not ...

  • Questions and answers on the Commission Communication `Towards a Circular Economy` and the Waste Targets Review

    What is a circular economy? A circular economy preserves the value added in products for as long as possible and virtually eliminates waste. It retains the resources within the economy when a product has reached the end of its life, so that they remain in productive use and create further value. It may involve: Increasing the time products deliver their service before ...

  • Time to address the air pollution control residue problem

    The incineration of municipal solid waste is gaining increasing importance in the UK, especially as the burning of waste can be used to generate energy, providing a more sustainable solution to our waste problem by diverting it from landfill sites. An issue with incineration is that some of our waste contains hazardous chemicals such as chlorine and lead which are volatilised during the process. ...

  • Supersonic Cleanup

    New onsite remediation process for PCB-contaminated soils The PCB cleanup market is currently estimated to be $40-billion worldwide. There are several PCB remediation companies, but most require energy-intensive incineration, the dangerous and costly transportation of contaminated ...


  • The determination of total mercury in fish and agricultural plant materials using thermal decomposition and amalgamation coupled with atomic absorption

    Mercury has long been recognized as a serious global pollutant that has a significant impact upon our ecosystem. Unlike most other pollutants, it is highly mobile, non-biodegradable, and bio-accumulative and as a result has to be closely monitored to ensure its harmful effects on local populations are minimized. Approximately 50 tons of mercury particulates are emitted into the atmosphere every ...

  • A thought for World Environment Day

    With World Environment Day approaching, I decided I really should poke my head above the parapet. As an environmental engineer it behoves me to add my bit about waste. Let me explain where I fit in. I work in the oil and gas business (boooo I hear you say). Well that aside, someone needs to work there to keep them as clean as possible! My forte is waste and water management and zero waste is the ...
