  • Thermal Treatment Technologies

    Hot gas decontamination: Hot gas decontamination is a technology still in the pilot-scale of development that can be used for decontamination of explosives-contaminated masonry or metallic structures. The method involves sealing and insulating the structures, heating with hot gas stream to 260 °C (500 °F) for a prescribed period of time, volatilizing the explosive contaminants, and destroying ...

  • GHG emissions: an assessment at municipal solid waste disposal site in Indore, India

    After ratifying the Kyoto protocol the assessment of anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHG) inventories has become crucial for India. Municipal solid waste management system for city of Indore, India, has been evaluated for GHG emissions over a period of 41 years. Corresponding assessment of CO2, methane and ...

  • Microwave processing in MOX fuel cycle

    The prominent aspect of the microwave heating technique applications in nuclear material processing is its eco-friendly status. It is envisaged that no active liquid waste will be generated from microwave processing. AFFF has fabricated the (U, Pu)2O mixed oxide fuels for PHWRs, BWRs and PFBR. AFFF is also working for the AHWR fuel cycle. The present paper summarises about the process ...

  • Like a phoenix from the ashes

    Thanks to growing environmental awareness, waste is increasingly being separated and recycled. However, residual waste always remains that can't easily be recycled. This ends up in waste incineration plants (referred to as KVAs in Swiss German) for disposal and reclaiming, such as the KVA Linthgebiet in Niederurnen in the Swiss canton of Glarus. Due to the strict environmental specifications ...

  • Techniques for processing industrial waste using arcplasma generated by the twelve-phase alternating current

    We have already presented an arc-discharging plasma generator, generally called a thermal plasma generator which is constructed by the six-phase alternating current power supply(Matsuura et al, 1994a, 1997). A more effective thermal plasma generator can construct by expanding this concept. As an example, this small power supply system has been presented in reference (Matsuura et al., 1994b). In ...

  • Time to address the air pollution control residue problem

    The incineration of municipal solid waste is gaining increasing importance in the UK, especially as the burning of waste can be used to generate energy, providing a more sustainable solution to our waste problem by diverting it from landfill sites. An issue with incineration is that some of our waste contains hazardous chemicals such as chlorine and lead which are volatilised during the process. ...

  • EPA proposes updates to CISWI rules

    On June 4, 2010, the U.S. EPA proposed updates to the Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources (NSPS) for Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration (CISWI) Units (NSPS Subpart CCCC) and Emission Guidelines (EG) for Existing CISWI Units (EG Subpart DDDD), collectively referred to as the "CISWI Rules." In order to describe the proposed updates to the CISWI Rules, it is necessary ...
