    Summer 2015 marked the completion of two years successful operation of an ERG (Air Pollution Control) Ltd designed, installed and commissioned waste gas treatment plant at the Saffil production facility in Widnes.  Background Saffil Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Unifrax, produces high temperature insulation products, for use in automotive catalytic convertors and other ...

  • Turning waste into wattage

    How we are helping to meet the growing demand for waste energy recovery It’s a sign of the times that more and more companies and organisations are now looking at ways to capitalise on the waste material their production process produces rather than having to pay a third part to take it away for them.  One reason of course is the high cost of scrappage.  Another is the ...

  • High performance biogas plants for organics waste diversion

    Wild fluctuations in prices for agricultural products and mushrooming prices for energy can greatly influence the economics of biogas plants. Long term reliable profitability calculations are becoming increasingly difficult. Generally speaking, however, rising energy prices have a positive effect on the economics of well designed biogas projects. By selecting low cost feedstock, the profitability ...

  • 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 ...

  • Reasonable waste digestion plants

    During the last years it became quite clear that in the area of utilisation of organic waste the anaerobic digestion has developed a leading position. This is not only based on its well known advantages:- abhigh rate degradation of organics- abcontained process- ablow emissions- abhigh yield of CO2-neutral produced biogas and high quality compost as its productsbut also on the fact that customers ...

  • Converting plant waste into biofuels

    Promising advances using yeast and fungi. Written by Nancy W. Stauffer. You can read the original story in MIT News MIT researchers are genetically engineering yeast to break down stubborn plant fibers into sugars that it can then ferment — a first ...

  • European Experiences With the Treatment and Digestion of Bio-Organic Waste

    In the area of waste management environmental awareness has essentially increased and according technologies got more and more accepted in Europe within more than ten years now. During all the time BTA has gathered experiences by developing and realising flexible concepts for biowaste treatment plants of different design and capacities for the treatment of various waste streams: full scale plants ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Fuelling ultra light rail public transport from a Gloucestershire organic waste treatment plant: a feasibility analysis

    Many medium-sized towns and cities face separate problems of traffic congestion and increasing pressure to reduce waste sent to landfill. The intent of the study was to determine whether the utilisation of biohydrogen from organic waste, as a transport fuel, can provide a holistic solution for municipalities to meet renewable energy and waste reduction targets in medium-sized towns. The study ...

  • Co-digestion of press liquids of source-sorted municipal organic waste in anaerobic sludge treatment of municipal wastewater treatment plants

    This paper describes a semi-continuous laboratory-scale investigation of a potential co-substrate for mesophilic anaerobic sludge digestion in a municipal wastewater treatment plant. A feed liquid produced from source-sorted municipal organic waste by pretreatment with a screw press was subjected to the investigation. Quantities produced in press trials as well as the composition of the feed ...

  • Comparison of Capacity Factors in Anaerobic Digestion of Organic Waste in the UK

    The ranking was made based on the ratio between the gross electrical production of the plant during 2014 and the registered capacity of the plant under Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO) scheme. The data on the electrical production of the plants is publically available through Ofgem  (The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets) which is responsible for the issuance of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Concepts for Environmentally Safe Soil Application of Stabilised Organic Waste

    ABSTRACT As a matter of fact, in the past, many mixed municipal solid waste MSW composting plants in various Countries aimed at producing compost for use in farmlands. For instance, in France in 1998, 7% of MSW (1,9 million tonnes out of 26,5 million tonnes) was reportedly being composted in 77 sites for mixed MSW composting [7]. The strategy of producing compost from mixed MSW has rarely been ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
