  • Redefining Solid Waste -- Again

    On March 26, 2007, EPA announced the issuance of a sweeping proposal to modify the RCRA definition of solid waste. The proposal seeks to streamline regulation of hazardous secondary materials, and revise the definition of solid waste to exclude certain secondary materials from RCRA regulation to promote the legitimate recycling of these materials. Proposal elements The proposal would ...

  • Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?

    Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency and/or cutting ...

  • Life Among The Heavy Metals

    Authors in scientific and applied works interpret the meaning of the concept "heavy metals" in different ways. Today, they include more than 40 chemical elements with an atomic mass of more than 50 atomic units. An important role in the determination of heavy metals is played by the following conditions: their high toxicity in relatively low concentrations, and the ability to bioaccumulation. ...

  • Vermicomposting technology for solid waste management

    IntroductionAristotle called worms the “intestines of the earth” and stated that there may not be any other creature that has played so important a role in the history of life on earth. Earthworms constitute a large part of biomass (living bodies) inhabiting soil. In recent years efforts have been made to use the potential of earthworms in recycling of nutrients, waste management and development ...


  • Privatization of Solid Waste Management in Pakistan

    The concept of waste management in the world is one of the most actual targets of humanity. The urban areas of Pakistan generates about 54850 tons of solid waste everyday or about 20 million tons per annum. According to estimates, about half of waste is left uncollected owing to inadequacy and inefficiency of the system. Proper solid waste management (SWM) can lead to increased revenues for the ...


  • The performance of Spanish solid waste collection

    In this paper we examine street cleaning and waste collection services in Spanish municipalities with a population exceeding 50 000. The purpose is to identify factors that influence the efficiency of these services. Three input variables (staff, vehicles and containers) and four outputs variables (tonnage, collection points, collection point density and kilometres of surface area washing) are ...

  • Geophysical applications to solid waste analysis

    Abstract: Case studies of regional landfills show that electromagnetic geophysical methods can accurately and inexpensively define boundaries and thickness of waste. Degradation of putrescible solid waste generates conductive leachate that can be imaged with a frequency-domain terrain conductivity meter. Terrain conductivity measurements can be modified through a simple algorithm based upon ...

  • Sustainable management of household solid waste

    In most countries, the majority of household solid waste is landfilled because of associated low capital, operation and maintenance costs. However, many existing landfills have exhausted their handling capacities and new facilities are faced with the problem of siting. Alternatives to traditional landfill practice are required to achieve sustainability in managing solid waste. This manuscript ...

  • New solid waste definition proposed

    When the Boiler MACT rule was vacated in 2007, one key element in the court challenge was that many non-fossil fuel materials burned in industrial boilers should be classified as solid wastes and regulated accordingly. Along with the recently proposed Boiler MACT and rules for commercial/industrial/solid waste incinerators (CISWI), EPA proposed criteria to determine whether non-hazardous ...

  • Industrial Solid Waste Disposal in China

    Abstract This paper investigates the current situation of industrial solid waste disposal in China. Recent Chinese literature about industrial solid waste disposal in China has been revieved and data are analysed on the amount of industrial solid waste production and disposal in Wuhan City in 1992. The results show a rapid increase in the total amount of industrial solid wastes in China: It was ...


  • Legal Lookout: Redefining solid waste

    Some hazardous secondary materials excluded from EPA's revised definition under RCRA. The definition of solid waste has long been the subject of controversy. At the heart of the debate is what constitutes 'discard,' versus legitimate recycle or reuse such that RCRA regulation should not apply. This question has been especially vexing for secondary materials, including spent materials, listed ...
