  • Biological Filtration: Future of Drinking Water Treatment

    Water is essential for all human life on the planet, but the fresh water supply is limited and is susceptible to being contaminated by all manner of toxins like arsenic, calcium, and mercury. There are many techniques to remove contaminants, including popular methods that add chemicals to balance others out, but one that not many people understand is biological water system filtration. ...

  • What classifies as water pollution and why is it an issue?

    The UN declared 2005-2015 as the International Decade for Action ‘Water for Life’. Yet each day thousands of people still die as a result of contaminated water. This does not even take into account the millions of organisms that perish every year thank to polluted water sources. Water pollution is a huge issue that is made more so by the fact that unfortunately, water is ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Effect of co-managing organic waste using municipal wastewater and solid waste treatment systems in megacities

    A model was developed to calculate the mass and heat balances of wastewater and municipal solid waste treatment plants when these plants operate either separately or together with a mutual dependence on mass and energy. Then the energy consumption, life cycle costs (LCCs), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and effluent quality were evaluated under various scenarios to identify the most effective ...

  • 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 ...

  • Life Cycle Assessment technique for sound management of organic municipal solid wastes

    Mauritius generates around 1200 tonnes of municipal solid wastes on a daily basis, out of which more than 60% is of organic nature. The objective of this paper was to evaluate two different strategies for the treatment of organic wastes on a life cycle perspective, namely: composting and Anaerobic Digestion (AD). The functional unit was one ton of organic municipal solid wastes. Windrow ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
