  • Incinerator Plant, Lidköping - Case Study

    SWEDEN: Baling of MSW In Lidköping the incineration plant is connected to the central heating systems of the city. However, incineration plants has a high demand for fuel in the winter season and limited demand in the summertime. Inflow of material, however, comes evenly all year around and this gives a need to store waste during the summer. The solution to this is the ...

  • Particulate Control Strategies for Incineration

    Abstract This paper discusses various particulate emission control strategies that can be employed for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Municipal Sewage Sludge, and Industrial Waste Incineration facilities. An example will be given of a particulate control installation that successfully cleans off-gases from an incinerator at a large photographic products plant. Data supporting a theoretical ...


  • 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 ...

  • Characterisation of Incinerator Residues for Their Possible Re-Use

    MSW incineration produces a high quantity of residues (slags, fly ashes, sludges). Recycling suitability of residues is therefore an important issue requiring as a first step their physical and chemical characterisation (mass, granulometry distribution, merceology) and determination of their hazardousness (i.e. pollutant contents of heavy metals and chlorinated organic compounds). ...


  • Evaluation of resource recovery through a Waste-to-Energy plant operating with municipal solid waste

    On 1 December 1984, an inter-local joint enterprise agreement was entered into between the Alexandria Sanitation Authority and the Arlington Solid Waste Authority (the 'Authorities'). The Joint Enterprise was formed to design, construct, equip, test and operate a solid waste to energy facility having an installed capacity of 975 tons per day of mixed Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). ...

  • Gasification - The Waste-To-Energy Solution

    Introduction Each year, Americans generate about 250 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste, or MSW—about 4.3 pounds per person per day. This includes “trash” such as kitchen waste, electronics, light bulbs, plastics, used tires and old paint, and yard waste. Despite significant increases in recycling and energy recovery, only about one-third of the total MSW is ...

  • Study Charts a Future for Waste-Derived Fuels

    Pointers to possible future EU policy initiatives to give co-incineration facilities burning waste-derived fuels a strategic role in waste management have emerged in a study for the European Commission.1 The report suggests a policy focus on promoting source separation of municipal wastes, active discouragement of mass burn incinerators, and a levelling of the regulatory playing-field for ...

  • The State of Garbage in America

    Latest national data on MSW management -28.5% recycled and composted, 7.4% combusted in WTE plants and 64.1% landfilled. BioCycle is pleased to produce the State of Garbage in America Report, providing a picture on how municipal solid waste (MSW) is handled throughout the United States. For this 15th nationwide survey, which began in 1989, BioCycle continued its collaboration with Columbia ...

  • Perspectives on organic waste recovery relative to composting and anaerobic digestion

    Generally speaking, organic waste renders its self suitable for recovery purposes owing to the nutrient elements it contains and the energy stored in the biochemical bonds of its constituent organic compounds. Both composting and anaerobic digestion (AD) have been used since a long time ago in reclaiming organic material. It seems that the first modern composting process was developed in 1920s in ...

  • An overview of the sustainability of solid waste management at military installations

    Sustainable Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management at military solutions necessitates a combined approach that includes waste reduction, alternative disposal techniques, and increased recycling. Military installations are unique because they often represent large employers in the region in which they are located, thereby making any practices they employ impact overall waste management strategies ...

  • The use of thermal plasma technology for treating air pollution control residues

    Energy from waste (EFW) is an exciting industry to be in right now in the UK. As pointed out by Euston Ling and Dr. Adam Read's article "The Shifting Landscape for Renewable Energy in the UK" {Waste Advantage Magazine, June 2011), the EFW capacity in the UK is set to grow strongly in the next 10 years, with some commentators predicting a three-fold increase in EFW capacity from the current 4 ...

  • Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT): The new kid on the UK waste management block

    Waste management in the United Kingdom (UK) has undergone a revolution in the past 20 years. In 1990, the UK landfilled more than 90 percent of its municipal solid waste (MSW), incinerated about 8 percent and recycled the remaining 2 percent. It had one the highest landfill rates in Western Europe and one of the lowest recycling rates, reflecting the UK’s mining traditions and aggregates ...

  • Quality standards of the output fractions after the material specific treatment

    The modern era of waste management did not begin in Germany until the mid-1960s. At that time the federal government established the legal basis for proper waste disposal which designated local communities responsible for the disposal of waste. In October 1965 the “Central Office for Waste Disposal” was founded by the federal government and the states (BILITEWSKI et al. 1997). Until the end of ...

  • Mechanical biological treatment trends

    Composting mixed municipal solid waste has a long tradition in Germany. In 1953, the first large-scale facilities in Baden-Baden and Blaubeuren started operating, followed later by plants in Heidelberg, Duisburg and other locations across the western part of Germany. Facilities were being opened to provide alternatives to landfilling MSW, and to produce compost for agricultural use. The quality ...

  • Composting infrastructure trends in the UK

    The European Union's Landfill Directive, which restricts landfilling of biodegradable waste, has made it necessary to develop alternative infrastructures to manage the organic fraction of the solid waste stream. In the United Kingdom, the Landfill Directive has created demand for composting facilities that take source separated organics (SSO), and for anaerobic digestion. Infrastructure also is ...
