  • Organics cart and container trends

    WHEN it comes to figuring out what cities, states and provinces are still throwing away, food residuals from households, commercial businesses and institutions continue to top the list. And as more jurisdictions look to adopt Zero Waste goals and mitigate methane emissions from landfills, the obvious candidate to boost diversion rates is the food residuals stream. In cities and towns that already ...

  • Performance evaluation of an aerobic biofilter with high organics containing synthetic wastewater

    The organics removal performance of a lab-scale aerobic biofilter of volume 0.6 L was studied using synthetic wastewater and waste automobile tyre-tube beads as media. The column study was performed under Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) in the range of 500-1500 mg/L at an empty bed contact time (EBCT) of 2 h. The treatability constant at 27°C was found to be 41.963. A maximum COD removal efficiency ...

  • 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 ...

  • Digester Developers Target Mixed Organic Waste Streams

     emerging group of commercial companies see a viable business opportunity in North America around building, owning and operating larger scale anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities to process mixed organic waste streams. In some instances, the projects being proposed and constructed only include anaerobic digester operations. In others, there is a combination of digestion with back-end ...

  • Electrochemical Oxidation Of Organic Pollutants

    Abstract The main aim this paper is to use 'Electrochemical Technology for removal of Organic Pollutants from Waste Water'. Today hazardous waste management has become one of the most challenging tasks to this technological world because tons of organic pollutants including various carcinogens are being exposed without the sufficient treatment prescribed as per the 'ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ...


  • A Comparison Between Systems for Source Separation of Organic Household Waste

    Conventional collection of source separated waste using separate containers was com-pared to collection in bags with different colours and optical sorting (OptiBag). Purity was found to be high, especially in the OptiBag system. However the conventional system had new instructions for sorting, which may have influenced the result. Sources for heavy metals are identified as waste metal fraction, ...


  • Concentrations of organic wood preservatives in wood chips produced from wood wastes

    We investigated the concentrations of wood preservatives in the wood chips produced in wood-waste processing facilities in 1988, 1998–1999, and 2001–2002. Among the wood preservatives used in the past in Japan, halophenols, including PCP, chlordane, and chlorpyrifos, had comparatively high detection rates and high average concentrations in the wood chips produced in 2001–2002. Aldrin and endrin ...

  • Application of household compost bin for diversion of organic wastes in small communities of Thailand

    Natural ventilated and aerated composting units were developed for household, fresh market and restaurant wastes. Household wastes required 8-10 weeks of composting period. The final compost product contained N : P : K content higher than organic compost standard. In aerated unit, the composting period was 30-40 days. Economical analysis suggested Benefit-Cost (B/C) ratio and Economical Internal ...

  • Thermal waste gas purification of siliceous organic compounds - Case Study

    Example: Electrical industry Similar tasks: Electronic industry, Coating, Waste management When coating mica insulation materials, peaks of high contamination occur. The exhaust air containing organic compounds generates excess heat when oxidised in the regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO). The properties of ceramic honeycomb blocks allow for the storage of that excess heat, for the ...

  • In-Vessel Composting of Residential Organics

    In 1994, the Regional Municipality of Peel began work on a system for residential organic residuals collection and composting. Although Peel had been promoting backyard composting, greater diversion rates were sought. The public was surveyed to determine what level of cooperation could be expected for source separation and setting out of food, soiled paper products, yard trimmings, etc. “We knew ...

  • Pumps with extended service life for generating biogas from organic waste

    When regular commercial pumps are used to process organic waste, they typically wear out after only a short period of time. Liquids pumped under these conditions attack pumps from two different angles: first with highly abrasive additives and second with liquids that have highly fluctuating pH values and therefore a high level of chemical aggressiveness. These conditions are very tough on seals ...

  • Emission of volatile organic compounds from solid waste disposal sites

    The emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from a solid waste disposal site for municipal solid wastes was quantified. The VOCs contained in the landfill gas taken at the site were benzene, toluene, xylenes, ethyl benzenes, and trimethyl benzenes, while the concentrations of chlorinated compounds were very low. The concentration of benzene in the landfill gas samples ranged from below the ...

  • Expanding organics collection

    THE Region of Niagara, located in southern Ontario between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, has relaunched its curbside source separated organics diversion program for single and multifamily dwellings. The Region, which has an objective of 65 percent waste diversion from landfill by 2012, serves over 400,000 residents throughout 12 municipalities. Free 13-gallon green bins were provided to households ...

  • EnviroSolutions, Inc. Responds to Increased Popularity of Organic Waste Recycling

    Most Americans are well aware of the concept of recycling and why it is important to the future of the planet. Government agencies and environmental groups have long stressed the need to place more waste into the recycle bin and less into the trash container. From paper to plastic and everything in between, “single-stream” recycling has grown in popularity in recent years. Also known ...

  • Biotreatment of waste gas containing pyridine in a novel rotating rope biofilter

    A novel Rotating Rope Biofilter (RRB) has been developed especially for the treatment of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) at higher loadings and characterised by high volatility along with high water solubility. The RRB provides a higher interfacial area (per unit reactor liquid volume) along with high oxygen mass transfer rate, greater microbial culture stability, and consequently higher ...

  • Organic waste in circulation -co-operation between university, practice and society in Sweden

    A challenge for the future is to improve recirculation of organic waste, including its contents of nutrients, between urban and agricultural ecosystems. The main reason for developing recirculating systems is to conserve energy and nutrients. The aim is to enable production of high quality and quantity food and feed on a long-term basis, to develop safe and economically feasible systems, to ...

  • 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 ...
