  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...

  • Influence of the comminution of organic waste on their biodegradability

    Organic solids are present in very large quantities as products or waste from agriculture, food industry, household and many other fields. The disposal of organic waste can be realised using biological processes like anaerobic digestion or aerobic composting. The anaerobic digestion has advantages in comparison to composting such as a better handling of wet waste, the production of useful ...

  • Treating organic waste with Cambi THP

    ABSTRACT This paper describes how the Cambi Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) treats biodegradable organic waste and converts it to renewable energy and pathogen-free and bio-fertilizer. The interest for the process is expected to increase due to new environmental legislation as well as increasing demand for renewable energy. The implementation of the European Landfill Directive 1999/31EC and the ...

  • Rotary drum composting of different organic waste mixtures

    The effects of three different mixtures of organic waste on composting in a rotary drum were examined by measuring changes in physico-chemical and biological parameters. It was observed that the time courses of the three mixtures: run A (grass cuttings, vegetable waste and food waste), run B (cattle manure, vegetable waste and sawdust) and run C (cattle manure, food waste, vegetable waste, paper ...

  • Challenges and chances for organic waste Management in Australia

    As in many other countries, waste management in Australia was seen as little more than providing adequate waste collection services and landfill disposal sites until recently. Waste was not seen as a problem, prompting waste generation rates per capita to reach a very high level. Understandably so, since a mere 18 million Australians occupy a vast land area with seemingly abundant space for ...

  • Environmental analysis of management systems for organic waste

    Organic waste is generally easily degradable and has a high nutrient content. Thus the risk is large that the handling of such material will generate emissions that affect the environment. New systems have been introduced for managing organic waste fractions from households and industries. These systems are based on source separation and biological treatment, e.g. composting and anaerobic ...

  • Zeroing in on Organics

    The months of January and February are data gathering time for BioCycle’s annual State of Garbage In America survey. For many state solid waste, recycling and composting officials, the year doesn’t get off to the right start if they don’t see one of our questionnaires coming across their fax or email lines! The data gathered from these state offices has enabled BioCycle to track the nation’s ...

  • Fresh look at organics bans and waste recycling laws

    Approximately 40 percent of food produced in the U.S. is wasted annually. At a time when millions of Americans are food insecure and thousands of farmers struggle to stay afloat, the negative consequences of wasting food extend far beyond the environmental impacts and loss of resources that could have been otherwise allocated. There are great opportunities for food waste reduction at the federal ...

  • Carbon offsets from organic waste conversion projects

    The Climate Act ion Reserve (the Reserve) has long had a protocol to give credit for the capture and destruction of methane emissions from organic waste in landfills, but they have now opened up the possibility of credits for projects that prevent that waste from entering landfills in the first place. In October 2009, the Reserve adopted the Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol, covering both ...

  • Implementation of la21 policies on waste management and the consequences on biotechnology of organic solid waste

    The UN 'Earth Summit' in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992 came about because of international concern about the environmental impact of human development, especially in areas like water, soil and air pollution, global warming, endangered species, tropical forests and oceans. The 'Rio Summit' produced a document called 'Agenda 21 – A plan for the 21st Century', which was signed and agreed to be ...

  • Treatment of organic wastes in malaysia . Problems and Prospects

    Solid waste is one of the biggest environmental problems in Malaysia (Hassan et al. 1995). The amount generated continues to increase in response to rapid increase in population and accelerated urbanisation and industrialization processes. Immediate and long-term strategies are required to ensure that the country’s rapid economic growth is not achieved at the expense of massive pollution ...

  • Detection of volatile organic compounds in waste water

    A standard Hiden HPR-40 has been used for the detection of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in water. This forms an important monitoring procedure for any installation that uses or produces such compounds and performs testing to help ensure that they do not impact on the environment. Such testing often forms mandatory government legislation for businesses. The data show the detection limits and ...
