  • What`s Hiding in Your Waste Piles?

    In over 25 years in the grinding and recycling industry, we’ve learned that there’s always more than meets the eye in a pile of waste materials. Whether it’s a pile of pallets or household garbage, there’s some good and some bad hiding under the surface. It's there if you know how to find it. You can find it with the right industry knowledge, the right equipment, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Perception of fire-risk at temporary storage sites of organic materials, waste fuels and recyclables

    The risk of fires at municipal solid waste (MSW) storage sites is of great concern because such fires not only result in material losses worth millions of Euros annually but also have deleterious effects on both human health and the environment. Keeping in view that management decisions addressing risk of fires cannot be divorced from human psychology regarding safety, a questionnaire survey was ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Immobilization of organic pollutants in cement pastes admixed with organophilic materials

    The results of 2-chloroaniline (2-CA) immobilization experiments in cement matrices, using an organophilic clay modified with phenolic resins as pre-sorbent, are shown. The 2-CA suspended in water was kept in contact with the organoclay for 24 h, and the slurry obtained was then admixed with ordinary Portland cement (OPC) without additional water, to obtain a firm solid waste. Six cement—clay ...

  • Turn Waste Materials Into Useful Products With Briquetting Machines

    In today’s world, any approach that aims towards reducing pollution through renewable energy must be appreciated. The use of Briquetting machines is such an approach. The fate of fossil fuel is well known, and their resources are fast getting depleted from all corners of the world. Thus, ways to exploit alternative energy resources that are renewable and lessen our dependence on fossil ...

  • 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 ...

  • Small domestic wastewater treatment using waste materials

    Phosphorus pollution of groundwater from small wastewater system is often considered as a major threat for aquatic habitats. Recirculating biofilters are often used to treat small wastewater systems without significant removal of phosphorus. In this paper, a low-cost waste material (dried alum residual) in pre-treated effluents from recirculating biofilters was examined. Two different types of ...

  • Database “organic and mineral residues”

    In the spirit of the material recycling concept in Germany (KrW-/AbfG, 1994), wastes are to be recycled as completely as possible, avoiding any impairment for mankind and the environment. In this connection, avoidance of material burdens by excessive nutrient and pollutant discharge is particularly important in the treatment, recycling and bringing into circulation of waste materials for re-use ...

  • 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 ...

  • Environmental efficiency of composting versus anaerobic digestion of separately collected, organic waste

    Environmental policy in the Netherlands among others aims at closing material cycles and minimising the amount of waste requiring final disposal. In this policy the highest priority is given to the prevention of waste production followed by (in descending order of preference) reuse, incineration with energy recovery and sanitary landfilling. In the implementation of this solid waste policy also ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
