  • Turning waste into wattage

    How we are helping to meet the growing demand for waste energy recovery It’s a sign of the times that more and more companies and organisations are now looking at ways to capitalise on the waste material their production process produces rather than having to pay a third part to take it away for them.  One reason of course is the high cost of scrappage.  Another is the ...

  • Combustion Of Heavy Fuels And Liquid Wastes

    This paper describes the design and operating conditions of liquid and gas combustors for heavy fuels and liquid wastes. Lower fuel prices can be achieved by switching from light oil to heavy ones, or combining with unconventional waste fuels. Unconventional waste fuels such as energetic off gases and organic liquid waste require especially designed combustion equipment like a special combustor ...

  • How to investigate mercury in the oceans?

    Mercury is a highly toxic metal that affects the environment and can endanger people's health, as a powerful neurotoxin. The combustion of coal, waste and fuel are releasing hundreds of tons of heavy metal into the atmosphere annually, and its sediment enters to soil and water. Mercury measurements are part of the EU project "Global Mercury Observation System". The long-term goal of this ...

  • Understanding the 3 Types of Arsenic Removal Used for Wastewater

    With the onset of the Industrial Revolution and the development of internal combustion engines and new manufacturing technologies, fresh water became an essential raw material not only for production, but for cooling purposes in manufacturing processes. However, when fresh water is used in an industrial process, it creates industrial wastewater composed of a variety of chemicals and other raw ...

  • Recovery Of Metals Using Combustion

    Process industries generate a number of hazardous waste streams containing metals bound with organic components. These metals can be quite valuable if they can be separated from the organic components and recovered. Four projects are discussed. ...

  • Waste to energy – processing waste with a high thermal value to substitute combustibles

    With the taking effect of the TASi (Technical Regulations on Estate Waste) in 2005, non-treated waste must no longer be disposed of and deposited. Commercial and industrial residues with a high thermal value such as rejects from paper industry, punchings from rubber and plastics, and other mono-fractions which are characterized by homogeneity and constant combustible properties through mechanical ...


  • Low emission combustion of Oilgas

    Type     HOFGAS®- IFM4c/2300/150 Commissioning     June 2001 Site     Cistierna (ES) Situation Enervisa SA in Cistierna own a plant for the recycling of old oils. The oil is evaporated and condensed into high-grade fuel. The reclaimed fuel is used in diesel engines for production of electricity as well as in burners for the ...

  • Understanding the dangers of combustible dust

    Paper shredding is growing into a big business. Recycling and the green movement certainly planted the seeds, but regulators have added the fertilizer. Industry-changing laws have been passed to govern document security in accounting, healthcare and banking, and shredders of many varieties are becoming the tools of those trades.Five or six years ago Warde Comeaux knew only a few people who ...

  • Two-Stage Combustion of High-PVC Solid Waste With HCL Recovery

    Untitled Document Abstract A waste-to-energy process based on high-PVC solid wastes is discussed. The basis is that at 200-400°C the PVC fraction decomposes ...

  • Compatibility of Compacted Soils with Municipal Waste Combustion Ash Leachates

    Hydraulic conductivity values for three compacted soils were used as indices of compatibility of the soils with two municipal waste combustion (MWC) ash leachates. Specimens of the three soils were compacted to 90% of proctor compaction (ASTM D 693) in double-ring permeameters and permeated first with water (0.005 N CaSO4) and then with MWC ash leachate. The hydraulic conductivity values of the ...

  • Bioenergy and charcoal production: an alternative option for disposal of combustible municipal wastes

    This project explored the possibility of using a CSIRO process to convert green waste (70,000 T/yr) to bioenergy. Tests conducted using CSIRO fluidised bed technique show that these wastes can be successfully converted to charcoal, and that this charcoal is very suitable for use as cooking fuels. The charcoal recovery rates achieved are also acceptable for commercial production and use as ...

  • Effects of combustion efficiency on an Otto cycle

    This paper explains how the combustion efficiency influence the performance of an irreversible Otto cycle under conditions of varying fuel-air ratio. The irreversibility of Otto cycle comes exclusively from the expansion and compression processes. It is assumed that some fraction of the fuel's chemical energy cannot be fully released inside the engine because of incomplete combustion. Amount of ...

  • Size reduction of substitute combustibles (RDF)

    The new pilot installation of SITA Wiebe GmbH, Bielefeld/Germany, processes highly calorific commercial and industrial waste to become quality-assured substitute combustibles for cement industry and/or power plants. Basic items of this ultra-modern processing installation are two one-shaft size reduction machines of type WLK 30 Super-Jumbo of WEIMA Maschinenbau GmbH, Ilsfeld. The total output of ...


  • Horizontal Mixers for Secondary Combustibles - Case Study

    The manufacture of secondary combustibles from household waste, industrial waste and special waste in accordance with statutory requirements is to be a huge challenge for system suppliers in the coming years. Currently, at times, extremely differing substances are treated in such a way that they can be loaded into conventional furnaces. The most important requirement is the detailed control over ...

  • Influence of Decreasing Heating Value on MSW Combustion

    Test runs in the TAMARA test facility to investigate the influence of decreasing lower heating value on the combustion of waste showed that the combustion quality could easily be kept constant at heating values exceeding 5 MJ/kg. The burnout of grate ashes and flue gas had slightly fallen off at lower heating values whereas the level of PCDD/F in the raw gas stayed constant in all tests. The ...

  • Corrosion Problems Arisen from the Use of Alternative Combustibles

    Introduction Metal Corrosion has been a subject of growing important in cement furnaces during the past few years. This development is mainly a result of the tendency to use alternative fuels with ...

  • Why high temperature combustion of landfill gas?

    Due to the accumulation of knowledge and the tightening of environmental law, the landfill technology has increasingly become concerned with the management of trace compounds in landfill gas. With landfill gas, contamination is through sulphur, chlorine, fluorine, halogenated hydrocarbons and heavy metals. Other trace elements such as volatile organic compounds (VOC), impose environmental ...

  • Variables Affecting Emissions of PCDD/Fs from Uncontrolled Combustion of Household Waste in Barrels

    ABSTRACT The uncontrolled burning of household waste in barrels has recently been implicated as a major source of airborne emissions of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated ...

  • Gaseous emissions during concurrent combustion of biomass and non-recyclable municipal solid waste

    Abstract Background: Biomass and municipal solid waste offer sustainable sources of energy; for example to meet heat and electricity demand in the form of combined cooling, heat and power. Combustion of biomass has a lesser impact than solid fossil fuels (e.g. coal) upon gas pollutant emissions, whilst energy recovery from municipal solid waste is a beneficial component of an integrated, ...
