  • 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 ...

  • Thermal waste gas purification of siliceous organic compounds - Case Study

    Example: Electrical industry Similar tasks: Electronic industry, Coating, Waste management When coating mica insulation materials, peaks of high contamination occur. The exhaust air containing organic compounds generates excess heat when oxidised in the regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO). The properties of ceramic honeycomb blocks allow for the storage of that excess heat, for the ...

  • Thermal deoilers - Thermal deoiling replaces liquid based degreasing

    The Problem A major Automotive company was mandated to have an alternate technology for degreasing evaporator fins. They had, until recently, been deoiling metal parts in a conveyorized solvent based vapor degreasing line, but the state environmental agency mandated that the line be shut down on a certain date due to the excessive water and air pollution it generated. The company had ...

  • Application of integrated waste management to developing economies

    Integrated Waste Management (IWM), is a concept which is often quoted and politically used, but seldom defined. IWM integrates waste streams, collection and treatment methods, environmental benefit, economic optimization and social acceptability into a practical and sustainable system. This is achieved by combining a range of treatment options including reuse, recycling, composting, anaerobic ...

  • Waste to energy plants – management issues and current practices

    Though open waste dumping has long back disappeared in the developed world ,it continues to be an eye-sore and environmental threat in many parts of the developing world. Landfills are becoming a common practice despite opposition from local community groups as well as NGOs for various reasons. However better equipped landfill facilities with provision for methane capture is being viewed as an ...

  • Characterisation of humic acid maturation by fluorescence spectroscopy and thermal analysis during composting of olive mill waste

    Humic acids isolated from different stages of olive mill waste composting were investigated by Elemental analysis, Fluorescence spectroscopy and by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The Elemental composition of these humic acids indicates an increase in aromatic structures during the composting. Indeed, the fluorescence results showed an increase in condensed aromatic ring systems. ...

  • Grease waste and sewage sludge co-digestion enhancement by thermal hydrolysis: batch and fed-batch assays

    Grease waste (GW) is an adequate substrate for sewage sludge co-digestion since, coming from a waste water treatment plant, it has a high methane potential (489 NmLCH4/gVSin); however, no synergistic effect takes place when co-digesting with 52%VS grease. Conversely, thermal hydrolysis (TH) improves the anaerobic digestion of GW (43% higher kinetics) and biological sludge ...

  • Maximising biogas in anaerobic digestion by using engine waste heat for thermal hydrolysis pre-treatment of sludge

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Dublin's Ringsend WWTP was designed to serve a population of approximately 1.2 million pe with a sludge production of 37,000 dry tonnes per year after upgrading to full secondary treatment. Several technical solutions were put forward as part of a Design, Build, Finance and Operate (DBFO) competition, with the chosen solution being a proposal by Black and Veatch for a ...

  • Can coater chooses the Quadrant SR Thermal Oxidizer

    A can manufacturer worked with Catalytic Products International, Inc to design a unique Thermal (recuperative) Oxidizer. A recuperative thermal oxidizer was chosen over other thermal oxidation systems because of high solvent loads exhausted from the company’s can coating lines and a desire to integrate customized energy recovery system. After careful examination of the process ...

  • Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT): The new kid on the UK waste management block

    Waste management in the United Kingdom (UK) has undergone a revolution in the past 20 years. In 1990, the UK landfilled more than 90 percent of its municipal solid waste (MSW), incinerated about 8 percent and recycled the remaining 2 percent. It had one the highest landfill rates in Western Europe and one of the lowest recycling rates, reflecting the UK’s mining traditions and aggregates ...

  • Technical Note: An effective thermal technology for the detoxification of MSW fly ash

    Increasing public concern regarding potential health problems due to improper waste disposal practices and the introduction of landfill taxes have induced the practice of incineration. Presently, all UK incinerators have to meet very strict emission levels. The municipal solid waste (MSW) fly ash generated has to be managed very carefully as it is enriched with toxic organic micro pollutants and ...

  • Determination of the thermal conductivity of shredded tyres by utilising a hot plate apparatus

    This paper presents the study of thermal conductivity of shredded tyre at varying temperature gradient. To accomplish this objective, laboratory tests have been conducted to determine the heat transfer properties of the materials that compose tyres (i.e., tyre rubber and wires) by using a hot-plate apparatus. A hot plate was adopted by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) as a ...

  • Contaminant removal from dry and wet sands by thermal desorption

    Infrared heating was used to determine the effects of temperature and moisture on the removal of selected organic compounds from contaminated sand matrices. Quartz sand was used as a chemically inert surrogate for soil to isolate the heat transfer and mass transfer effects without any chemical contribution from soil. The selected organic contaminants were 3-nitrobenzene sulphonic acid, sodium ...
