  • Potential of treated contaminated soil as a sustainable stabilising admixture

    Soil improvement can be achieved by adopting different techniques suitable for specific application within the ambient environment and the incorporation of different materials into weak soils has proven to be one such technique. This paper deals with an attempt to study the potential use of treated petroleum contaminated soil as a sustainable stabilising material. In addition to improving the ...

  • Concepts for Environmentally Safe Soil Application of Stabilised Organic Waste

    ABSTRACT As a matter of fact, in the past, many mixed municipal solid waste MSW composting plants in various Countries aimed at producing compost for use in farmlands. For instance, in France in 1998, 7% of MSW (1,9 million tonnes out of 26,5 million tonnes) was reportedly being composted in 77 sites for mixed MSW composting [7]. The strategy of producing compost from mixed MSW has rarely been ...

  • Evaluation of sodium lignosulphonate for the remediation of chromium–contaminated soil and water

    Commercial sodium lignosulphonate, a by–product of sulphite pulp leaching, was evaluated for the remediation of soil and water contaminated with hexavalent chromium. Two series of bench–scale tests were performed: (a) removal of chromium from water using reagent binding and membrane separation; and (b) stabilisation of chromium in the soil using chemical soil flushing. Water treatment tests were ...

  • Soil Reinforcement: Tunnel Portals - Case Study

    Problem The A1 Autostrada, known as Autostrada del Sole (Motorway of the sun), runs for 750km from Milan to Naples, via Bologna, Florence and Rome. Not only is it the longest motorway in Italy, it is considered to be the key corridor in the country’s highway network.  To improve safety, reduce congestion and consequent environmental pollution, a new section of the A1 was proposed in ...

  • Bioremediation applied to high pH contaminated soil washing slurry

    BioFuture Ltd. in conjunction with General Smontaggi SpA have used applied environmental engineering and bioaugmentation to remediate hydrocarbon contaminated soil washing slurry. The soil washing slurry had been treated using lime to dry and stabilise it for transport to special landfill for disposal. The starting pH was 12.55 and it was successfully bioremediated so that it could be used as a ...

  • Nutrient transfer by runoff from sewage sludge amended soil under simulated rainfall

    Wastewater sludges are used in agriculture as soil amendment and fertilizer, with regard to their organic matter and nutrient content. However, availability of nitrogen and phosphorus from sludge-amended soils and their transfer in runoff may lead to eutrophication of downstream surface water. The aim of this study is to establish and compare the effect of two different sludges on these ...

  • Erosion control products: cost effective alternatives for revegetation

    Erosion is any horticulturist’s worst nightmare. From the process of replanting and restoration, to the loss of the most fertile soil, i.e. the topsoil, erosion can have damaging effects on any cultivation. Although erosion is mainly associated with water erosion, wind erosion and tillage are another two forms of erosion. So what are the signs that can help identify erosion early ...

  • Options for Reclamation of Mine Tailings in West Africa

    Revegetation of tailings in West Africa presents two major problems when using established methodologies, in that soils have the potential to be highly alkaline, rather than acidic, plus the majority of recommended plant species are non-native to the area.  Alteration of cap engineering however can modify hydrology, pH and morphology, allowing for a variety of habitats.  Cover crops are ...

  • Microbe-assisted phytoremediation approach for ecological restoration of zinc mine spoil dump

    Mining is one of the sectors that impacts air, water and soil pollution. The various environmental problems that are associated with mining activities are deforestation, removal of fertile topsoil, unstable slopes prone to sliding and erosion, siltation of water bodies due to wash off of mineral overburden dumps, air pollution due to discharge of dust and noise pollution. The most effective means ...

  • Landfilling of Pre-treated Waste - Consequences for the Construction, Operation and After-care of Landfills

    INTRODUCTION From the realisation of the German Waste Storage Ordinance (Ordinance on Environmentally Compatible Storage of Waste from Human Settlements AbfAblV, ANONYM, 2001) follows that in Germany from June 2005 on only pre-treated wastes are allowed to be furnished to landfills. In some parts pre-treatment will fundamentally change the physical, biological and chemical properties of the ...

  • Maesteg Row, South Wales case study - A former gas works proves larger than originally thought

    An old gas company sold land to Maesteg Rural District Council for social housing in the 1970s. Although the land had been sold, improved historic data has indicated the gasworks site was much larger than originally thought – and nearer to residential housing. British Gas inherited the site, and as part of maintenance programme undertook ‘stabilisation work’ – investigating potential pollutants ...

    Installation of new Terram Green Bund System “TGBS” for slope stability and landscape. The project is a natural turf sports pitch in Sheffield which was to be surrounded by an environmentally and ecologically friendly 1.5m high bund. The angle of the bund slopes is approx 45° and their stability was a concern because of the shear strength of the soil used. (A good quality granular ...

  • Dynamic restructuring of waste removal in decentral plants

    The mechanical and biological treatment of residual waste meets the requirements for the production of defined material flows out of nonspecific waste. The specific material flows can reach the quality demands of the industry by wet screening, when beforehand the result of composting is a far-reaching biological stabilisation of the residual waste. Three fractions can be separated: recyclable and ...
