  • Case Study: Odor Abatement Solutions

    Odor issues related to industrial processes are not uncommon.  An odor is caused by one or more volatilized organic compounds (VOCs) that humans can perceive by the sense of smell.  The challenge is that “odor is subjective, and what is sweet to some, can be a nuisance to others.   In most cases the ...

  • Indicators to assess the recovery of natural resources contained in demolition waste

    Demolition waste materials are one of the major industrial waste deposits in many countries and represent an important quantity of potential resources that are not exploited, because the major part of these wastes go to landfill. Indeed, recycling or recovery of demolition waste can reduce the need of primary natural resources. This article gives indicators and a method to analyse demolition ...

  • PVC Geomembrane Liner for Waste Containment in Wuhan - Case Study

    PVC geomembrane liner is a kind of impermeable liner, which is widely used in the modern municipal solid waste containment system. PVC is an abbreviation for Poly Vinyl Chloride. They are installed in the side and bottom liners to inhibit flow of leachates and thus prevent the contamination of groundwater. Manufactured by the calendaring or extrusion process, BPM PVC geomembrane has high puncture ...

  • Waste Disposal

    Introduction The final step in the waste management process is waste disposal, the permanent isolation of waste. Some wastes can be managed and disposed safely with existing facilities and proven methods. Other Department of Energy (DOE) wastes require more complex disposal facilities. DOE has conducted extensive research into alternative waste disposal methods and has concluded that deep ...

  • What a waste!

    Having worked on putting into place effective waste management systems in the middle of the Sahara desert, once again I am left in despair at poor precedents in the UK.I did the Great North Run this year, and was amazed at the amount of rubbish that was left for the local council to collect. I also attended the RWM waste and recycling show in Birmingham to promote zero waste, and how to achieve ...

  • Waste not, want not

    Consultant Andy Ive considers solutions which not only comply but also enhance the environmental profile of today’s industrial companies. Until recently the prevailing perception in many industries, particularly those operating in emerging market areas has been that waste is an unwelcome inconvenience. The primary infrastructure of most companies was fundamentally not designed to deal with waste ...

  • Experimentally analysing compressive and tensile strengths of concrete containing steel waste fibres

    Considering increasing growth of using other materials in concrete for increasing its quality, studies on fibres have been recently extended. Existence of fibres can compensate for some of the weaknesses of concrete in terms of its brittleness and fragility. Now, in this study, role of steel waste fibres in compressive strength of cubic samples and tensile strength of cylindrical samples at ages ...

  • Containment for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Containment treatments are often performed to prevent, or significantly reduce, the migration of contaminants in soils or ground water. Containment is necessary whenever contaminated materials are to be buried or left in place at a site. In general, containment is performed when extensive subsurface contamination at a site precludes excavation and removal of wastes because of potential hazards, ...

  • Compacted lateritic soil treated with blast furnace slag as hydraulic barriers in waste containment systems

    Laboratory testing was conducted to assess the feasibility of using lateritic soil mixed with up to 15% blast furnace slag (BFS) by dry weight of soil as a suitable hydraulic barrier. Tests were carried out on the lateritic soil-slag mixture to ascertain the particle size distribution, index properties and compaction characteristics. The relationship between hydraulic conductivity, unconfined ...

  • Organics cart and container trends

    WHEN it comes to figuring out what cities, states and provinces are still throwing away, food residuals from households, commercial businesses and institutions continue to top the list. And as more jurisdictions look to adopt Zero Waste goals and mitigate methane emissions from landfills, the obvious candidate to boost diversion rates is the food residuals stream. In cities and towns that already ...
