  • 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 ...

  • Solidification / Immobilisation of hazardous waste for subterranean storage

    The use of subterranean salt mines for the final storage of inorganic hazardous waste is state of the art in Germany, and in fact most other European countries. However, the technical requirements to prepare the waste in an appropriate way are quite challenging. Over ten years ago econ supplied a plant to a salt mine in eastern Germany. The plant uses econ’s unique batch-wise working mixing ...

  • Municipal solid waste and recovery potential: Bangladesh perspective

    Rapid urbanization and population growth are largely responsible for very high increasing rate of MSW generation in the urban areas of Bangladesh, one of the densely populated Least Developed Asian Countries (LDACs). These scenario posses a social, environmental and professional threat for city dwellers, urban planners, development authorities and other concerned stakeholders. In Bangladesh, a ...

  • 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 ...

  • Determination of the Environmental TCLP Metals in Waste-Waters, Solid Wastes, and Soils by Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry

    Hazardous wastes can originate from many sources – industrial processes, product formulations, synthetic operations, virtually any manufacturing business. The nature and composition of the “wastes” can vary so much that one industry’s discharge can serve as another’s raw materials. It is the tremendous transfer of these materials – their storage, transportation, spillage and leakage into the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Perception of fire-risk at temporary storage sites of organic materials, waste fuels and recyclables

    The risk of fires at municipal solid waste (MSW) storage sites is of great concern because such fires not only result in material losses worth millions of Euros annually but also have deleterious effects on both human health and the environment. Keeping in view that management decisions addressing risk of fires cannot be divorced from human psychology regarding safety, a questionnaire survey was ...

  • Commissioning and operation of high level radioactive waste vitrification and storage facilities: the Indian experience

    In India, R&D work for management of high-level radioactive liquid waste (HLW) was started along with inception of the Indian Atomic Energy Programme. This culminated in the setting up of the first vitrification facility at the Waste Immobilisation Plant (WIP) at Tarapur. The second vitrification facility has been commissioned at WIP at Trombay and the third such facility is being set up at ...

  • Methane emissions reduction from organic wastewater and solid waste co-composting: parameter estimation and sensitivity analysis

    Using the approved large scale methodology AM0039 and approved baseline methodology AM0010, an estimated 7,329.04 tCO2e/yr are typically generated from degradation of organic wastes at the landfill in Mauritius. Baseline emissions for anaerobic degradation of organic wastewaters (OWW) in open lagoons approximated to 36,036 tCO2e/yr; 402,783.92 tCO2e/yr for transportation of OWW and municipal ...

  • Establishment of industrial solid waste treatment costs of the mechanical industry – a case study in Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam

    Survey results from 72 mechanical manufacturers in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in conjunction with related studies showed that industrial solid waste – hazardous waste (ISW-HW) treatment charges were operated in two forms: fixed and varied based on generated ISW-HW mass. Charges of collection – transport – storage – treatment – landfill for each waste composition varies widely (5 ÷ 20 fold), ...

  • Waste Management Overview

    Introduction Our Nation has entered an era in which, as a result of changing world conditions, nuclear weapons production is receiving less attention while the public is expressing increasing concern about protecting human health and preserving the quality of our environment. In response to this national concern, the Department of Energy (DOE) has made waste cleanup and environmental restoration ...

  • Turning waste into power

    Economic, social and environmental factors dictate the necessity to manage waste to a new level. Wastewater plants, landfills, farms and food plants are all the owners of biomass that can be digested to produce biogas and turned into power. Biogas can be burned directly in boilers for heat recovery and used for manufacturing, heating or cooling; this is the simplest method of direct biogas ...

By applying waste management, the ship or rig owner or operator takes control of waste handling with the aim of achieving some or all of the following objectives: 1) To fulfill ...

  • Management of Hazardous Wastes

    ' Management of hazardous waste is a growing concern in many countries. The long-term impacts and costs of improper disposal can be very high and the emphasis must be on prevention. A comprehensive management system should include (i) policies, institutions and effective regulations and (ii) adequate and acceptable disposal facilities (either public or private). This note outlines the key ...
