  • MSW Thermovalorization

    The problem of waste elimination has been a topical subject in the last decade due to the growing use of throwaway products and packaging, that make up 40% of the entire waste by now. In Italy more than 25 million tons of municipal solid waste  are produced every year. On average, every inhabitants in our country produce about 450 kg of waste per year, more than one kilogram per day.  Until the ...

  • Mixed MSW composting in transition

    WITHOUT a doubt, composting the mixed municipal solid waste stream is a “niche” business. It is an MSW management option that seems to be viable in very specific situations. In some instances, these plants were built to service tourist destinations, often in somewhat rural areas where recycling is difficult and landfills are distant. In several other cases, public agencies built plants to extend ...

  • Source Separated MSW Composting in the US

    MUNICIPAL solid waste composting projects are being launched based on residential separation of the compostable stream from recyclables and trash - quite widespread in Europe and increasingly in Canada. One trend - typically in cities and suburban communities - is to add source separated residential organics to existing yard trimmings collection programs. Composting facilities permitted to ...

  • Potential biogas production from sludges and msw in Uruguay

    Sewage treatment Montevideo's sewage is disposed into the sea by means of an outfall. Nevertheless as there are a lot of cities that are not on seashore, and most of these cities are discharging their effluents into rivers without proper treatment, a more strict sewage treatment must be done in order to achieve the discharge standards. For the 1,780,000 inhabitants the current sewage coverage is ...

  • Composting - Best bang for MSW management buck

    For many years, life cycle analyses of end-of-life management practices have been available for all of the basic recyclables as well as organics. The life cycle data, usually derived by the US Environmental Protection Agency's Waste Reduction Model (WARM), represents the net greenhouse gas impact of recycling, landfilling or incinerating a variety of material streams. The model calculates ...

  • MSW management strategies for the city of Rome: a comparative assessment

    In this paper, on the basis of a detailed characterisation of the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generated in the city of Rome, different integrated management strategies regarding both source separation of selected fractions and the treatment and disposal of the residual commingled waste were compared and discussed in terms of achievable material and energy recovery. The main findings of this ...

  • Mixed MSW composting is steady as she goes

    Two new facilities came on line in 2006, while one ceased operation and a second is shifting to a new technology. Annual survey identifies a total of 14 plants. Part I STEADY-STATE may be the best phrase to describe the status of facilities composting mixed municipal solid waste in the United States. In fact, steady-state may be the best phrase to describe solid waste composting in general since ...

  • Siting MSW landfills with a weighted linear combination methodology in a GIS environment

    Landfill has been taken to the bottom of the hierarchy of options for waste disposal but has been the most used method for urban solid waste disposal. However, landfill has become more difficult to implement because of its increasing cost, community opposition, and more restrictive regulations regarding the siting and operation of landfills. Land is a finite and scarce resource that needs to be ...

  • Technical Note: An effective thermal technology for the detoxification of MSW fly ash

    Increasing public concern regarding potential health problems due to improper waste disposal practices and the introduction of landfill taxes have induced the practice of incineration. Presently, all UK incinerators have to meet very strict emission levels. The municipal solid waste (MSW) fly ash generated has to be managed very carefully as it is enriched with toxic organic micro pollutants and ...

  • Thermal plasma processing in the production of value added products from municipal solid waste (MSW) derived sources

    Abstract The disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is an increasingly difficult challenge for communities. Advanced thermal treatment (ATT) technologies, such as Gasplasma®, have been specifically developed to effectively utilise wastes to generate clean electrical power. An added beneficial feature of this process is the conversion of ash-type materials in the MSW to ...

  • Mathematical modeling of heavy metals contamination from MSW landfill site in Khon Kaen, Thailand

    Kham Bon landfill site is one of many municipality waste disposal sites in Thailand which are in an unsanitary condition. The site has been receiving municipality wastes without separating hazardous waste since 1968. Heavy metals including, Pb, Cr and Cd are found in soil and groundwater around the site, posing a health risk to people living nearby. In this research, contamination transport ...

  • Optimal allocation of landfill disposal site: a fuzzy multi-criteria approach

    Due to rapid population growth and economic development, there has been a significant increase in municipal solid waste (MSW) generation in India. The estimated solid waste generation in India ranges from 100g per capita per day in small towns, 300-400g per caipta per day in medium cities and about 500g per capita per day in large cities. As per the available trend the amount of waste generated ...

  • Alternative stabilisation options of mechanically sorted organic fraction from municipal solid waste prior to landfill disposal

    In order to foresee the measures of the Directive 1999/31/EC, waste management policies are focused on the reduction of organic matter landfill disposal, through the recovering of the organic waste stream or the pre-treatment of residual wastes before landfilling. This paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of possible stabilisation treatments of the mechanically sorted organic fraction ...

  • Geochemistry of sediments and water with a health risk assessment of heavy metal contaminated vegetables grown in Dhapa, a waste disposal site in Kolkata, India

    Dhapa, is a well known municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal site in the eastern part of the city of Kolkata. Geochemical study reported here shows that in its sediments, the concentration of Zn, Cu and Pb greatly exceed the average worldwide shale concentration. The water samples collected from tubewells, dugwells, pond and canals have elevated concentrations of Zn, Mn, Cr, Cu, Ni and Pb. The ...

  • Self-sustained vermicomposting plant at municipal solid waste generation point

    The increase in quantum of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generation puts additional burden on MSW and energy management. Out of all the wastes, the biodegradable waste is the worst waste regarding heat generation due to anaerobic conditions of the waste. The expenditure on collection, transportation and disposal of MSW are very high and environmentally unhygienic. The waste can be converted into ...
