  • The myth of `residual waste`

    Recently, I was asked by my good friend John Nicholson (a consultant and contributing editor to this magazine) to address a meeting of the Air and Waste Management Association (AWMA) Ontario Sector, regarding my position on generating energy from 'residual waste.' This invitation provided me with the opportunity to research the composition of so-called residual waste -- you know, the roughly 35 ...

  • Refractories, plastics, insulation or textiles containing chromium compounds - Case study

    Purpose The original version of this Plant Service Bulletin (PSB-43) was issued in April of 1990 to alert owners and operators of boilers and steam generators that certain materials containing chromium may, under certain operating conditions, produce hexavalent chromium (Cr + 6), a carcinogen. It also suggested remedial action and substitute materials. The initial issue of PSB-43 ...

  • Treatment of textile industry effluents using orange waste: a proposal to reduce color and chemical oxygen demand

    Various agricultural residues have been tested as biosorbents due to their low cost, high surface area, and favorable surface chemistry. In this work, a sweet orange albedo was tested as a biosorbent for treatment of real textile effluents. The orange albedo powder was prepared by drying the residue at 50 °C and milling to 30 mesh, and then used for dye adsorption from a alkaline (pH = 10.71) ...
