  • Designing With Geosynthetic Clay Liners

    In construction, preventing the penetration of liquids and gases is essential to maintaining the integrity of a structure. Often, containment is just as important, especially when dealing with chemical contaminants or other waste. When looking to stop the spread of contaminated liquids and gases, there are few tools as effective as geosynthetic clay liners (GCL). Read on to learn how to design ...

  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • Case study - Tin plating wastewater treatment

    The Client The Client is a steel industry based in the Middle East producing tinplates for food cans. Tinplates provide excellent corrosion resistance and are produced starting from cast iron by several steps. Cast iron is first rolled to get thickness in the range of 0.2 – 0.3 mm than it is electroplated from aqueous acid solutions at a temperature around 60°C. The plating bath ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • How a Specialized Automatic Control Valve Solved Flooding

    The Colombian area of Antioquia creates much of its clean power from hydropower plants along the Guadalupe River. The Guadalupe IV hydroelectric plant generates power with three vertical axis turbines that discharge water below the river level. To prevent flooding, however, the plant needed a solution that ensured the ejector ...

  • 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 ...

  • Cleaning mold containing surfaces

    Once a determination is made that a moldy surface can be cleaned instead of removed or demolished, what cleaning agents are effective in removing or killing the mold? Many factors influence the selection of a cleaning agent. 1). The type of surface to be cleaned: Is it porous? Hard such as cement or sheetrock? Soft, such as cloth, fabric or wallpaper? Absorbent and thick such as rugs, ...

  • Cost Containment: Beyond the Obvious

    Utilities today can implement a number of different initiatives to help them contain costs and maximize profits. Some of those, such as switching to a more efficient fuel source if possible, can produce obvious results that are relatively easy to calculate. But there are other initiatives, though less obvious, that can produce significant results at the bottom line. One such cost-containment ...

  • Industrial container recycling simplified by oil skimmer

    Barrel Reconditioning Industries (BRI) of Cottage Grove, MN builds recycling systems for both metal and plastic containers, including lubricating fluid drums and barrels. A typical BRI system consists of several integrated machines or stations, including a solvent preflush and a high pressure water wash. The water wash presents two distinct problems. First, oil and grease contaminated wash water ...

  • Processing Wastewater Sludge Using Dewatering Containers

    The relative cost of dewatering equipment varies widely and is directly related to the processing rate. For smaller utilities that need to dewater sludge in batches, dewatering containers are an alternative that can be relatively inexpensive and simple when compared to other technologies on the market. The most common type of dewatering container is based on a roll-off box design, although any ...

  • The combustion of oil sand beds containing an axial fracture

    The processes within simplified laboratory cylindrical beds of specially reconstituted oil sand during oil recovery are described. The beds contained a small diameter cylindrical axial passage of high permeability representing a fracture where hot vitiated air of known composition was fed steadily. The fuel sand cores tested contained either pure hydrocarbon or extracted oil off naturally ...

  • Using a Self Bailer on Containment Sumps to Filter Hydrocarbons

    How do you eliminate problems associated with the collection of rainwater in outdoor containment systems and maintain compliance with EPA and Clean Water Act regulations?  Since most outdoor oil storage tank sumps and oil drum spill pallets will inevitably be exposed to local precipitation and storm water runoff from nearby catchment surfaces, it is necessary to make sure you ...

  • Case study - RTO handles high VOC loading at silgan containers

    OVERVIEW Regeneration Game - Originally printed in The Canmaker Magazine - Sayers Publishing Group As the first generation of oxidizer systems in the industry nears the end of their service life, many canmaking plants face repair or replacement of their existing air pollution control systems. Like many others in the industry, a Silgan canmaking plant in the ...

  • Excavation, Retrieval, and Off-Site Disposal

    Introduction: Contaminated material is removed and transported to permitted off-site treatment and/or disposal facilities. Some pretreatment of the contaminated media usually is required in order to meet land disposal restrictions. Confined disposal facilities (CDFs) are engineered structure enclosed by dikes and designed to retain dredged materials. A CDF may have a large cell for ...

  • WWTP installs new affordable ortho-phosphorus analyzer to help contain escalating chemical costs - Case Study

    Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources recommended a reduction in the state's phosphorus limit from 1 ppm to 0.05 ppm for inland lakes and streams (0.5 ppm for the Great Lakes) in efforts to improve water quality and reverse eutrophication of state's lakes and rivers. These new limits when adopted will force many WWTPs to spend more on chemicals and invest in new equipment. In anticipation ...

  • Rolled Filters Move Filtration in a New Direction

    When selecting filtration technology, industrial users have long wrestled with the tradeoffs of dirt-holding capacity versus particle selectivity or quick-and-dirty change-outs versus process time. For many applications, a self-contained rolled filter offers an effective solution to both problems. Constructed with polypropylene hardware and various media in a spiral-wound design, rolled filters ...

  • Liquid waste off-gas treatment - Case Study

    Application Biffa Waste Services operate a major waste disposal site at Kilsyth in Scotland where they handle many types of industrial liquid effluent. This can give rise to a range of emissions from both the tank farm and the road tanker deliveries. In addition, significant NO2 and nitric acid fume releases can arise from process upset conditions. ERG provided an emergency NO2 ...
