  • Defining solid waste

    Simultaneous to the publication of the final National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Boilers (the Boiler NESHAP) and the Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incinerator (CISWI) Rules, EPA issued a new regulation that for the first time defines what materials are a non-hazardous solid waste when combusted. This rule, Solid Wastes Used as Fuels or Ingredients in Combustion ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Domestic scale vermicomposting for solid waste management

    Background;Vermicomposting has recently been recognized as one of the most appropriate methods to stabilize organic waste. In terms of a system for waste management, vermicomposting is sustainable, economically viable, and without detrimental effects to human health or to the environment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the process of vermicomposting using an indigenous species of ...

  • STEP - System for Solid and Liquid Waste Put to the Test

    Wendy Laursen details the System for Environmental Protection (STEP) system which is being installed inside a twenty-foot ISO container to be trialled onbard the Canadian Coast Guard vessel, Pierre Radisson.   The STEP container houses Terragon's single-drum Micro-Auto Gasifciation System (MAGS) and Wastewater Electrochemical Treatment Technology (WETT).  MAGS aims to ...

  • EPA Proposes Revisions to RCRA Definition of Solid Waste

    On June 30, 2011, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson signed a proposed rule seeking to narrow certain recycling exemptions under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act's (RCRA) "Definition of Solid Waste" (DSW) provisions. The rule should be published in the Federal Register within the next two weeks. A pre-publication copy of the rule and related ...

  • Co-composting of sewage sludge and municipal solid waste

    Israel production of sewage sludge and MSW grows each year due to the increasing number of modern Wastewater plants that are using activated sludge process and the increasing population. Non-stabilized Sewage sludge is an environmental nuisance due to high level of pathogens, offensive odours, insect attraction and potential water sources pollution. The Haifa region itself, where the study took ...

  • Potential and possibilities of vermicomposting in sustainable solid waste management: a review

    Treatment of solid wastes using earthworms has been intensively investigated in recent years. Most of the agricultural, urban or industrial organic materials can be used for vermicomposting, ensuring that they do not contain toxic materials, which can harm the earthworms. The transformation of solid wastes into vermicompost is of double interest: a waste is converted into value-added product and ...

  • EPA Issues Proposed Revisions to Definition of Solid Waste

    The definition of “solid waste” under the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is unquestionably one of the most difficult environmental concepts to get one's head around. Even after 27 years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is still tinkering with revisions to the definition to better define the types of recycling activities that fall within the scope of the ...

  • Disposal options for solid waste of Bangalore city based on its characteristics

    A detailed analysis of Bangalore's solid waste has been done to suggest various management options for safe disposal. It has been observed that Bangalore's solid waste contains a larger proportion of degradable waste compared to many other cities. Based on detailed analysis of available data, it has been suggested that a landfill with a leachate and gas collection system is better than an inert ...

  • An eco–sustainable model on energy recovery from municipal solid waste

    In the present day situation, the toxicity in municipal solid waste has increased to a very high level leading to various problems. The main purpose of the study is to improve the quality of mixed solid waste by adding locally available biomass. It was observed that the feedstock for refuse derived fuel and biomethanation contains 12% and 20% toxicity, respectively, as a result degrading the ...

  • Emission of volatile organic compounds from solid waste disposal sites

    The emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from a solid waste disposal site for municipal solid wastes was quantified. The VOCs contained in the landfill gas taken at the site were benzene, toluene, xylenes, ethyl benzenes, and trimethyl benzenes, while the concentrations of chlorinated compounds were very low. The concentration of benzene in the landfill gas samples ranged from below the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Waste Disposal

    Introduction The final step in the waste management process is waste disposal, the permanent isolation of waste. Some wastes can be managed and disposed safely with existing facilities and proven methods. Other Department of Energy (DOE) wastes require more complex disposal facilities. DOE has conducted extensive research into alternative waste disposal methods and has concluded that deep ...

  • Compatibility of compacted lateritic soil treated with bagasse ash and Municipal Solid Waste leachate

    Compatibility tests were carried out on lateritic soil treated with up to 12% bagasse ash compacted at about 2% wet of their respective optimum moistures using the standard Proctor energy. Samples were sequentially permeated with distilled water and municipal solid waste (MSW) leachate for 22 and 69 days, respectively, until steady flows were established. The final hydraulic conductivity values ...
