  • Facile synthesis of novel hierarchically porous carbon derived from nature biomass for enhanced removal of NaCl

    In this work, the hierarchically porous biomass carbon (HPBC) was originally prepared for desalination through a simple activation of cheap biomass carbon (BC). Such crucial activated conditions as the KOH/C ratio, the activation time and the activation temperature were deeply investigated. It is demonstrated that the activated conditions had a great influence on the structure properties and ...

  • Recent developments in risk acceptability for technical facilities

    Recent developments in risk acceptance for technical facilities exposed to man-made and natural hazards are reviewed and discussed. Present value lifetime utilities involving the utility from consumption, discounting and survival probabilities by predictive cohort life tables are derived. Suitable parameters for the utility function are based on the so-called work-leisure optimisation principle. ...

  • Tire Shredding: The Best Alternative

    From cars and trucks to planes, tractors, and forklifts, tires are used for a wide variety of vehicles. And those tires don’t last forever. Regardless of how many miles a tire travels, it should not be used longer than ten years past its manufacture date, as the rubber will grow brittle and can crack. This isn’t usually a problem, though, since most tires are replaced within three or ...

  • Detection and measurement of GWGs in semiconductor fab facilities

    Problem Statement Various processes and tools in the modern wafer fab plant produce effluent streams that contain unacceptably high levels of perfluorocarbon GWGs (greenhouse warming gases). These effluent streams are abated by plasma incineration and wet scrubbers and other techniques. It is necessary to measure the destruction removal efficiency (DRE) of the various abatement methods ...

In addition, ...

  • Study Charts a Future for Waste-Derived Fuels

    Pointers to possible future EU policy initiatives to give co-incineration facilities burning waste-derived fuels a strategic role in waste management have emerged in a study for the European Commission.1 The report suggests a policy focus on promoting source separation of municipal wastes, active discouragement of mass burn incinerators, and a levelling of the regulatory playing-field for ...

  • Application of 3D-fluorescence/PARAFAC to monitor the performance of managed aquifer recharge facilities

    3D-fluorescence spectroscopy was used as a monitoring tool to describe the fate and transport of dissolved organic matter (DOM) during groundwater recharge using recycled water, imported water, and stormwater at a managed aquifer recharge site in California. The study was supplemented by analysis of conservative wastewater-derived trace organic chemicals using liquid chromatography coupled ...

  • Optimal strategy for algae control in potable water treatment facilities

    This paper presents both a current review of the state-of-the-art in algae removal, and an experimental study of algae removal in potable water supply. Established techniques were investigated by jar-testing on surface raw water samples derived from a lowland river, with the dominant species of algae being Scenedesmus sp (a green algae). These tests were conducted both in isolation and in ...

  • International Tire Recycling Spotlight: Venezuela

    Tire recycling is a serious global concern. Scrap tires take up far too much space, they can spawn devastating tire fires that burn for weeks or even months when stored together in large numbers, and they they leach chemicals into soil and groundwater. Recycling is an absolute necessity, but not easily done. Most developed countries have produced millions of scrap tires (at the very least), and ...

  • Wastewater treatment facility uses ‘monsters’ to better manage screening, odor and trash

    As wastewater pours into the Cobourg Water Pollution Control Facility located on the outskirts of this Canadian town, it comes loaded with organics, trash, debris and chemicals. A large perforated plate screen system, called a Monster Separation SystemTM, is the plant’s first line of defense and removes all unwanted solids in order to protect downstream processes.Managers at the facility report ...

  • Facility location planning for treatment of large household appliances in Spain

    A two-step approach is presented for strategic planning of recycling systems for discarded electronic products. In a first step, the appropriateness of municipalities for the installation of recycling facilities is evaluated based on economic, infrastructural, and legal location criteria applying a Multi-Attribute Decision-Making procedure (PROMETHEE). In a second step, interdependencies of ...

  • State Aims to Modernize Mindsets Along with Trash Policies, Facilities

    By July 1, 2016, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is set to revise the state-wide solid waste management plan to include a strategy to divert, through source reduction, reuse and recycling, 60 percent of solid waste generated in Connecticut after January 1, 2026. That figure is more than double the waste currently diverted from landfills. Doubling the amount of waste ...

  • Assessing the Impacts of Membrane Residuals on Wastewater Treatment Facilities and Effluent Quality

    ABSTRACTGiven the benefits derived from membrane treatment of water and wastewater, interest in using membranes is growing throughout the world, and at an ever increasing rate. As expected, the focus has been on the benefits of the product water (permeate) side of the system, but the system sidestreams (concentrates) bring their own special set of issues. As with any ...

  • Becoming A “Water Resource Recovery Facility” Offers Financial Benefit

    While the term “Water Resource Recovery Facility” may seem like nothing more than a trendy phrase, the name change represents a distinct shift in the role that wastewater utilities can now play. Wastewater is packed full of resources — nutrients, micronutrients, metals, grit, biopolymers, biosolids, and more — and much of that can be recovered and sold, offering additional ...

  • Wood recycling is cornerstone of new Tallahassee C&D facility

    For better than four decades, the Williams family, owners of Marpan Supply, Inc., have been in the container services business in and around the Tallahassee area. And for the last 15 years or so, steady area growth meant that waste stream has been heavy with construction & demolition (C&D) debris. Seeing that, prompted Kim Williams, son of Marpan's owner and founder, to question the logic ...


  • The Waste Industry: Refuse Derived Fuel Hits a New Level

    The Environment Agency published the final data up to the end of December 2014 in February. It shows that the overall tonnage of RDF sent overseas throughout the year topped 2,373,611 tonnes. The figures confirm the rapid growth in demand for RDF from operators in the UK from European energy from waste facilities, with 2014 continuing the trend of increasing exports to facilities overseas. RDF is ...
