  • Assessment of recycling potential of municipal solid waste in Mauritius

    The purpose of this paper is to implement a Reverse Vending Machine (RVM) which would divert valuable resources to recycling centres. It assessed materials having attractive scrap values such as glass, PET bottles and Used Beverages Cans (UBC). In this paper, two scenarios were proposed, namely: Scenario 1 which dealt with the selling of recyclables to recycling plants and Scenario 2 which ...

  • 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 ...

  • Municipal solid waste: zero tolerance management strategy

    Currently, Indian cities generate waste which is being disposed in its outskirt as open dumping. This approach affects health and life of people living at city outskirts. A paradigm shift is required in the approach to waste management. Waste management policy should aim at scientific processing of waste within the city itself. This paper highlights policy framework towards management of ...

  • Transformation of the waste business influences all business owners

    Even if recycling was expensive and unprofitable in the past, it will not be that in the future. We need to stop landfilling valuable materials for the sake of our business and for the sake of the globe. A huge, global transformation in waste management has already begun. The biggest driver of change is related legislation that makes us shift towards recycling and material recovery. The pace ...

  • 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). ...

  • Municipal waste water treatment plant case study

    A municipal WWTP in the North of England was experiencing significant problems with accumulations of FOG in the Wetwell at the head of the treatment plant. The FOG would form a solid cap over the well several feet thick. This put considerable strain on the pumping gear, interrupted the performance of the float switches and required regular manual intervention from the staff. High costs were also ...

  • Utilisation of municipal solid waste as an amendment for reclamation of coal mine spoil dump

    Mine spoil dumps generated due to mining activities pose drastic physico-chemical and biological constraints for sustainable vegetation. Thus an eco-friendly and cost-effective Microbe Assisted Phytoremediation (MAP) is adopted for reclamation of coalmine spoil dumps. The results indicate that MAP is also an excellent tool for fast restoration and productivity of wastelands, 95?99% plants ...

  • Municipal solid waste management in Jodhpur city, Rajasthan (India) - current status

    Jodhpur city is the second largest city of Rajasthan State, having population of about 1,077,717 and an area of 232 sq km. The city generates around 380 t/d of municipal solid waste (MSW). With the increase in population, urbanisation and industrialisation, the problems of handling MSW have significantly increased in the past few years. There is no arrangement for segregation of waste at source. ...

  • Analytical approach for predicting biogas generation in a municipal solid waste anaerobic digester

    The increasing worldwide industrialization, urbanization and population explosion in major metropolitan cities have significantly affected the amount of wastes generated from municipal solid wastes (MSW). Beukering et al., (1999) accounted for industrialization as an important factor that increases waste generation. Anand (1999) focused on urbanization as an important variable in waste ...

  • Effect of co-managing organic waste using municipal wastewater and solid waste treatment systems in megacities

    A model was developed to calculate the mass and heat balances of wastewater and municipal solid waste treatment plants when these plants operate either separately or together with a mutual dependence on mass and energy. Then the energy consumption, life cycle costs (LCCs), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and effluent quality were evaluated under various scenarios to identify the most effective ...

  • The effects of municipal solid waste compost and compost tea on mineral element uptake and fruit quality of strawberries

    Three levels of municipal solid waste compost (MSWC) and two application rates of compost tea made with MSWC were applied to strawberries for two years. The highest level of application of MSWC significantly increased the concentrations of most extractable soil mineral elements except for Ni which was increased in the highest compost tea application rate. Despite large differences in soil mineral ...
