  • Biotreatment of waste gas containing pyridine in a novel rotating rope biofilter

    A novel Rotating Rope Biofilter (RRB) has been developed especially for the treatment of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) at higher loadings and characterised by high volatility along with high water solubility. The RRB provides a higher interfacial area (per unit reactor liquid volume) along with high oxygen mass transfer rate, greater microbial culture stability, and consequently higher ...

  • 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 ...

  • Defining solid waste

    Simultaneous to the publication of the final National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Boilers (the Boiler NESHAP) and the Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incinerator (CISWI) Rules, EPA issued a new regulation that for the first time defines what materials are a non-hazardous solid waste when combusted. This rule, Solid Wastes Used as Fuels or Ingredients in Combustion ...

  • 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 ...

  • Processing Wastewater Sludge Using Dewatering Containers

    The relative cost of dewatering equipment varies widely and is directly related to the processing rate. For smaller utilities that need to dewater sludge in batches, dewatering containers are an alternative that can be relatively inexpensive and simple when compared to other technologies on the market. The most common type of dewatering container is based on a roll-off box design, although any ...

  • Are Universal Wastes DOT Regulated?

    The answer is yes, no, and maybe. Under the DOT regulations, hazardous wastes are regulated in all modes (ground, air, rail, vessel) of transportation. EPA has classified specific hazardous waste as Universal Waste to streamline the process and encourage recycling of these materials (see 40 CFR 273). EPA has specifically addressed the DOT requirements for these waste at ...
