  • Determining anaerobic degradation kinetics from batch tests

    Data obtained from a biomethane potential (BMP) test were used in order to obtain the parameters of a kinetic model of solid wastes anaerobic degradation. The proposed model considers a hydrolysis step with a first order kinetic, a Monod kinetic for the soluble organic substrate degradation and a first order decay of microorganisms. The instantaneous release of methane was assumed. The ...

  • Measuring solid waste eco-efficiency performance through environmental accounting

    Planning and implementation of eco-efficient practices require different information measured both in financial and non-financial units. Indeed, eco-efficiency strategies, by definition, require this type of information to simultaneously confirm the reduction of the total amount of solid waste production and the improvement in organizations' added value. However, current solid waste accounting ...

  • 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 ...

  • TOC Determination in Solid Samples using the Suspension Method

    The TOC content in solids plays an important role in the classification of soils, sludges and sediments. According to the German Ordinance on Environmentally Compatible Storage of Waste from Human Settlements, TOC in solid materials is one of the key parameters for the characterization of wastes as part of the acceptance control of landfills. This important control measure requires a ...

  • Anaerobic digestion of Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (OFMSW) in two-phase system

    In view of recovering energy resource from the treatment of Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (OFMSW), anaerobic digestion of OFMSW prior to aerobic composting as post-treatment was considered. This study aimed to determine the operational characteristics and efficiency of a two-phase system composed of a fed-batch hydrolysis reactor (phase I) and a methanogenic Upflow Anaerobic Sludge ...

  • Bio hydrogen production from kitchen waste

    The hydrogen producing organisms such as Escherichia coli (E.Coli), Enterobacter cloacae, Hafnia alvei, Citrobacter freundii, Serratia marcescens and Clostridium acetobutylicum strains were isolated from the sludge of biogas plant. The hydrogen producing efficiency of isolated organisms from kitchen waste were examined under anaerobic conditions. Lab scale studies were conducted under controlled ...

  • Arizona Landfill Case Study (C3 Technology)

    Between 1979 and 1980, industrial and hazardous wastes were disposed of at the Site in a series of unlined pits, each of which was used for a particular type of waste disposal. It is reported based on evaluations of manifests that approximately 3.4 million gallons of hazardous liquid wastes and between 3,700 and 4,100 tons of solid wastes were disposed of in the pits at the Site. Of particular ...

  • 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 ...

  • In-situ estimation of the methane generation rate for a wet and highly organic solid waste landfill

    Significant investments in landfill gas utilisation projects are required at project commencement. The methane generation rate for the Villa Dominico Landfill in Buenos Aires, Argentina is 0.26 yr−1, a very high rate as a result of the high organic content in the waste, and high moisture conditions within the refuse. The implications for landfills is that ...
