  • Environmentally Friendly Recycling Process for Plastics and Rubber Recovery

     Abstract A quantized converter of the potential energy of a fluid or a free-flowing mass located in a natural or an artificial storage, which should always be situated at a higher level than the aforementioned converter in the accepted geodesic coordinate system. In contrast to the known converters, such as the water runner (turbine), operating in continuous regime and transforming ...


  • Shredding tyres stops zika virus breeding

    Zika is a dangerous disease threatening millions of people today in southern hemisphere. It is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Once you get bitten it is too late to do much but what is important is to prevent this mosquito from breeding. Mosquitos typically lay eggs near water because ...

  • The Life Cycle of Rubber

    In this day and age, our society revolves around movement. Cars, planes, buses, motorcycles, trucks, and thousands of other vehicles help to transport us all over the globe. Most of these modes of transportation rely on tires and other rubber products for one main intended purpose; movement. Millions of tires are produced every year to fulfill our transportation needs. Sadly, the production of ...

  • Case study - Rubber curing emissions

    Overview A rubber curing company was looking for a new, affordable abatement solution to treat their blue haze and low-level Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in order to meet regulatory requirements. The large Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) in use was extremely expensive to operate and maintain. The company began their search for a system that offered effective opacity control and ...

  • Environmental Profile of the Rubber and Plastic Industry

     Introduction The EPA's Office of Compliance has developed a series of profiles or notebooks containing information on selected major industries. These notebooks, which focus on key indicators that holistically present air, water, and land pollutant release data, have been thoroughly reviewed by experts from both inside and outside the EPA. What will you find in this ...

  • Impact of aluminum chloride on process performance and microbial community structure of granular sludge in an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor for natural rubber processing wastewater treatment

    In this study, granular sludge formation was carried out using an aluminum chloride supplement in an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor treating natural rubber processing wastewater. Results show that during the first 75 days after the start-up of the UASB reactor with an organic loading rate (OLR) of 2.65 kg-COD·m−3·day−1, it performed stably with a removal of 90% of the ...

  • Evaluation of Tire Derived Rubber Particles for Biofiltration Media

    ABSTRACTCurrently, on average, one tire is discarded in the U.S. for every man woman and child every year. While the reuse market for used tires has increased over the years to approximately 75%, there are still an estimated 2-3 billion used tires stockpiled in the U.S. Finding economical and sustainable end uses for this tire material is an ongoing challenge to environmental engineers and ...

  • Membrane Bioreactor for the treatment of natural rubber wastewater

    A membrane bioreactor was set up using two pieces of Kubota flat sheet membranes, with nominal pore size of 0.4 ∝m and a total effective area of 0.2 m²atex concentrate processing factory. A steady-state MLSS concentration was attained at 8500 mg/L during biomass acclimatisation. A critical flux of 0.01224 m³/m²h was determined using the flux step method, whereas an optimum ...

  • rubber expansion bellows explode by what reasons

    First, determine whether the pressure pipe is too large, general rubber is 1.0MPa pressure rubber joints maximum pressure at 2.0MPa range , you can ensure not burst , but if the pressure is too large , then it should choose a higher- pressure sphere ( 1.6 MPa), 1.6MPa pressure test the range of 3.0MPa. Therefore, the installation should install the designer's requirements, install the appropriate ...

  • Treatment of natural rubber processing wastewater using a combination system of a two-stage up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket and down-flow hanging sponge system

    A pilot-scale experiment of natural rubber processing wastewater treatment was conducted using a combination system consisting of a two-stage up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) and a down-flow hanging sponge (DHS) reactor for more than 10 months. The system achieved a chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal efficiency of 95.7% ± 1.3% at an organic loading rate of 0.8 kgCOD/(m3.d). Bacterial ...

  • Reduction of Waste from Synthetic Rubber Testing and Unreacted Styrene: Kemcor Australia

     Kemcor Australia has used cleaner production processes to reduce waste from synthetic rubber testing and unreacted styrene in small batch production, with significant cost savings. Background Kemcor Australia is a leader in the production of olefins, poly-olefins and synthetic rubber, and is part of the Altona (Victoria) chemical complex, the largest centre for primary ...


  • Reusing Recycled Tires: 5 Benefits of Recycled Rubber Retaining Blocks

    According to the Recycled Times, over 300 millions used truck and car tires are accumulated every year. At least 25% of those tires are being put into landfills, which means that every year in the U.S., 75 million tires are taking up space in a landfill when they could be reused for something better. To put this information into perspective, for every three people in the United States, there is ...

  • Ferrioxalate-induced solar photo-Fenton treatment of natural rubber latex wastewaters

    This study evaluated a ferrioxalate-induced solar photo-Fenton process for natural rubber latex wastewater treatment. The reaction was carried out in a laboratory-scale solar photo-Fenton plug flow baffle reactor. An optimization study was performed using a central composite experimental design including the following variables: pH, initial concentrations of H2O2, Fe2+, and ...

  • LiquiSorb 200 saves time and money before the rubber hits the road

    Problem In tire manufacturing there is much more to the finished product than just rubber. Tire chords, a by-product of the manufacturing process, are coated with a proprietary dip solution that acts as a flexible adhesive/bond in tires. This dip solution has an extremely high concentration of solids in water, making traditional wastewater treatment techniques less effective, extremely slow, and ...

  • Equilibrium and thermodynamics of dye removal from aqueous solution by adsorption using rubber wood saw dust

    Batch equilibrium experiments were carried out for the sorption of Bismarck brown onto rubber wood saw dust particles. The operating variables studied were the initial dye concentration, particle diameter and solution temperature. A linearised Langmuir isotherm was found to well represent the equilibrium uptake for the range of operating conditions studied. The monolayer sorption capacity of ...

  • Sealing challenges in the chemical processing, food and pharmaceutical industries

    The acronyms may be short in the chemical processing, food and pharmaceutical industries, but they pose big sealing challenges. CIP, Cleaning in Place, uses chemicals lethal to the majority of elastomer seals, while SIP, Sterilisation in Place employs superheated steam up to 140°C with an even greater deteriorating affect. In addition to this, for some applications, the seals must meet the strict ...
