  • Oil Recycling - Case Study

    The problem: Waste oil recycling contributes very much to climate protection through (CO2) energy saving. Compared to the production of base oil the re-refining of waste oil uses 34 % less resources. In the sixties the German government was subsidising the re-refining of waste oil. Because of that the use of waste oil as a fuel was neglected. The used oil re-refining is the ...

  • Do you know the two most important words required to understand oil spill booming?

    Much has been written (incorrectly) about how to deploy boom in order to protect, deflect or contain oil. We have long promoted using math and science when deploying spill countermeasures not only because it works, but because it’s faster, safer, more effective and it saves time, money and impact. What we’ll focus on in this article is the where of ...

  • Tire Shredding: Alternatives to Landfills

    For many reasons, whole tires pose a major problem to landfills. The most obvious is the inefficient use of space. The actual rubber of a tire takes up only a small fraction of the space a tire occupies, and the rest of the space is wasted. A less obvious but far more serious problem is that tires may trap methane gasses when buried with other garbage in landfills. When this happens, the tires ...

  • Invention of the Tire Shredder

    The process of vulcanizing rubber was discovered by Charles Goodyear (yes, you read that right) in 1839, and the development of rubber tires followed not long after (Source: Continental Truck). From there, it didn’t take long for worn-out tires to start piling up, and finding good ways to ...

  • Biomass and Integration in Future Energy Systems and the Bioeconomy

    Biomass was the primary source of materials and energy until the industrial revolution set off a series of major changes around two hundred years ago. In the industrialized world fossil fuels became the primary source for energy in the forms of electricity and heat and provided almost all fuels for transport. However, biomass continued to maintain an important role in the economies in both ...

  • Sterile wastewater treatment with vacuum distillation

    Hygiene requirements are growing increasingly strict in many sectors, and the treatment of industrial wastewater is no exception. The vacuum distillation process in particular has to deal with the question of sterile treatment and subsequent storage of water obtained from the process. The mere possibility of reintroducing wastewater into the production process makes it imperative to prevent ...

  • Plastic Pails and Their Different Tops

    Pails are typically defined as being containers in which the person can carry with one hand. While they are designed with one-hand in mind, the quality of contents within can sometimes vary regarding necessary strength. With pail being made with versatility in mind (.6 gallon to 6.5 gallons has quite a difference) so do the lids that go on top. There are two main types of pails, open head, and ...

  • In the Works: Magnetic Plastics

    (from Recycling Today Magazine) Harnessing the power of magnetic currents has long been an effective way to separate and recover scrap metals. Now, researchers are looking at ways to use this same power to improve scrap plastic sorting methods. Scrap plastic comes in the form of production or processing scrap and from post-consumer streams. Production scrap can often be components or ...

  • Time is of the essence in plastics

    Introduction Determining the moisture content in plastics is an important step in the extrusion and molding process of many industrial resins.  Excessive moisture content can lead to microscopic steam pockets that can blister or weaken the integrity of the molded product.  Plastic pellets in a saturated or ‘wet’ state can also mislead buyers of bulk plastic since ...
