  • Utilisation of waste marble powder in cement industry

    Presently large amounts of slurry are generated in marble cutting plants with serious consequences on the environment and humans. This paper presents test results showing the feasibility of using waste marble powder (WMP) in cement industry as a substitute limestone. Also, it describes the formulation of new lime–based (CR II) cementitious materials derived from these industrial wastes. The ...

  • 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 ...

  • Low grade heat utilisation for seawater desalination by the HTTF process

    To improve heat transfer efficiency, Horizontal Tube Thin Film (HTTF) evaporators are being used in multieffect desalination plants. These plants require less pumping energy than thermal-based desalination plants. To generate the design data, experimental studies were carried out in a single-tube HTTF experimental setup, and heat transfer correlations were developed at BARC. The experimental ...

  • Case-study - Utilising waste heat for water production and climate control

    Water purification is needed to produce high quality water for consumption, agriculture and industrial needs. Conventional water treatment processes, like distillation and reverse osmosis, consume vast amounts of energy. However, there is a large potential for significant reductions in energy consumption and CO2 emissions in this sector. It can be achieved by the exploitation of waste heat for ...

  • Energotechnological oil shale utilisation by means of an SHCU - a low waste and environmentally sound technological process

    This paper presents the calculated data on the emissions into the environment from the low-waste energotechnological solid heat carrier units (SHCUs) working with oil shales. A comparison of this technology with direct oil shale combustion at a power plant was carried out using the example of an Estonian power plant. The energotechnological plant (ETP) including two units SHCU-3000 with an oil ...

  • Thermal plasma processing in the production of value added products from municipal solid waste (MSW) derived sources

    Abstract The disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is an increasingly difficult challenge for communities. Advanced thermal treatment (ATT) technologies, such as Gasplasma®, have been specifically developed to effectively utilise wastes to generate clean electrical power. An added beneficial feature of this process is the conversion of ash-type materials in the MSW to ...

  • The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions using various thermal systems in a landfill site

    In this paper, the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from an uncontrolled landfill site filled with Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) are compared with those from controlled sites in which collected Landfill Gases (LFG) are utilised by various technologies. These technologies include flaring, conventional electricity generation technologies such as Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and Gas Turbine (GT) and ...

  • Landfilling of Pre-treated Waste - Consequences for the Construction, Operation and After-care of Landfills

    INTRODUCTION From the realisation of the German Waste Storage Ordinance (Ordinance on Environmentally Compatible Storage of Waste from Human Settlements AbfAblV, ANONYM, 2001) follows that in Germany from June 2005 on only pre-treated wastes are allowed to be furnished to landfills. In some parts pre-treatment will fundamentally change the physical, biological and chemical properties of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Advanced Digestion Plant at Bran Sands design and construct experiences

    Abstract In June 2007 Northumbrian Water awarded a design and construct contract to Aker Solutions for a new advanced digestion (AD) plant at their Bran Sands site on Teesside. Following laboratory trials, advanced digestion via thermal hydrolysis was identified as the preferred treatment process for the upgrade of Bran Sands Regional Sludge Treatment Centre (RSTC). The plant will treat ...

  • New system to convert food waste into fertiliser for greenhouse use gives potential 95% reduction in CO2 emissions

    A new method of processing food waste into fertiliser has been outlined in a recent study. The process uses a digester system with microorganisms to break down organic waste into fertiliser. The resultant fertiliser was used in a low-energy greenhouse to produce a range of food crops. The method is a potential way to utilise food waste and reduce the energy consumption of food production as part ...
