  • Atmospheric impact of a municipal wastes incinerator

    This paper presents a case study of an air pollution dispersion model for the atmospheric impact assessment of a new municipal wastes incinerator (MWI). The capacity of the present MWI will increase more than ten times, and a new high-efficiency flue gas treatment system is projected. The environmental impact study has been focused on the long-term aspect of the air pollution (chronic pollution) ...

  • Simulation of the plume emitted by a municipal waste incinerator in Madeira Island

    TAPM (The Air Pollution Model) was applied to Madeira Island to simulate the behaviour of the plume of a municipal waste incinerator that was constructed in the southern slope of the island at an altitude of 1380 m. TAPM simulates very well the atmospheric flow that occurs around the island and inside the inner valleys under strong synoptic forcing. Validation tools reveal the good agreement ...

  • Effect of drying on leaching testing of treated municipal solid waste incineration APC-residues

    Air-pollution-control (APC) residues from waste incinerators are hazardous waste according to European legislation and must be treated prior to landfilling. Batch and column leaching data determine which type of landfill can receive the treated APC-residues. CEN standards are prescribed for the batch and column leaching test; however, these standards do not specify whether or not the residue ...

  • Metal releases from a municipal solid waste incineration air pollution control residue mixed with compost

    The influence of 10 wt.% mature compost was tested on the heavy metal leachate emissions from a calcium-rich municipal solid waste incineration air pollution control residue (MSWI APC). Apart from elongated columns (500 and 1250 mm), an otherwise norm compliant European percolation test setup was used. More than 99% of the metals Al, As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe and Ni were left in the APC residue after ...

  • 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 ...


  • Municipal Solid Waste – Key to a Low Carbon Economy

    A newly released report has found the waste sector has a key role to play in the development of a low carbon economy and the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHGs). This report comes in advance of the UN Climate Conference in Paris, which will take place in December. The report was ...

  • Recycling Zinc From Municipal Solid Waste

    Results from experiments carried out in laboratory and on a 0.5 MW test facility are presented. It was shown that Zn can be substantially extracted from waste using different techniques. In the pilot experiments the Zn behavior was investigated with radioactive tracers. It was shown that by changing the operation conditions from combustion to gasification the amount of evaporated Zn can be ...

  • Economic Analysis of Options for Managing Biodegradable Municipal Waste

    The main objective of the study was: To conduct an economic evaluation, that considers both private and social welfare costs and benefits, of existing options for managing the biodegradable fraction of municipal solid waste. Although all management options (anaerobic digestion, composting, landfilling, incineration, etc.) receive some consideration in the study, the main emphasis has been on the ...


  • Municipal solid waste and recovery potential: Bangladesh perspective

    Rapid urbanization and population growth are largely responsible for very high increasing rate of MSW generation in the urban areas of Bangladesh, one of the densely populated Least Developed Asian Countries (LDACs). These scenario posses a social, environmental and professional threat for city dwellers, urban planners, development authorities and other concerned stakeholders. In Bangladesh, a ...

  • Municipal solid waste - waste to energy conversion in India: an overview

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) is generated in enormous quantities, in India, causing environmental problems. It is collected primarily by sweeping in India and dumped on the outskirts of urban areas, which pollute the environment. Such MSWs also release methane and carbon dioxide, which are important greenhouse gases. MSW comprises biodegradable material. The MSW disposal methods in India mainly ...

  • Innovation in municipal solid waste management in England: policy, practice and sustainability

    This paper identifies influences on the design of the innovative statutory framework now driving change in waste management practice in England. The framework employs a mix of policy instruments, including a landfill allowance-trading scheme that is the first-ever economy-wide permit trading scheme and mandatory recycling targets. Despite intensive stakeholder scrutiny of the framework, concerns ...

  • Management of organic content in municipal solid waste - a case study of Lahore

    Poor solid waste management (SWM) is one of the leading obstacles for absolute clean and healthy environment. Growing economy of Lahore has rapidly increased growth rate which in turn has flared solid waste generation. Municipal solid waste is contributing heavily to air, water and land pollution and a major portion of municipal waste is organic. Generally considered unfruitful, this organic ...

  • The relevance of moisture control in organic municipal Solid waste windrow composting process

    The valorisation of the Municipal Solid Waste composting fraction assumes importance in management strategies of the MSW and constitutes a way of producing an organic material such as humus to improve the soil aeration, the water holding capacity and valuable product when used as soil amendment because it is a source of nutrients (N, P, K) and useful for recovery of poor and degraded soils. It is ...
