  • Why ‘custom-built’ is often cheaper than off the shelf

    We know that we’ve said it before, but even though we list what we call our ‘standard range’, by far and away most of the incinerators and cremators we manufacture are specially designed and manufactured to match the individual needs of each customer.  Since everyone’s requirements are different, virtually every unit we produce is ‘made to order’ and the ...

  • Low-Level Waste Projection Program Guide

    The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE or the Department) is taking a structured approach for the determination of its low-level waste (LLW) disposal needs through the development of this Low-Level Waste Projection Program Guide (referred to as the Guide). The Department has developed this Guide as part of a process to improve the management of DOE LLW. This Guide has been prepared by the Office of ...

  • Measuring level by weight

    Measuring level or inventory by weight provides high accuracy. The weight is not affected by ingredients that foam or settle unevenly or by changes in density or the shape of the tank. Weight is weight, regardless of percent solids, bridging, rat-holing, or whether your ingredient is conductive or sound-absorbing. Because weighing is a noncontact method of measuring level, there is no chance of ...

  • Methylsulfonyl polychlorinated biphenylsin fishfrom an electronic waste‐recycling site in South China: Levels, congener profiles, and chiral signatures

    Great concerns have been raised about the fate and effects of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and other organic contaminants contained in electronic waste (e‐waste) exported from industrialized countries at midlatitudes to subtropical and tropical regions. Information on the metabolites of these chemicals, for example, methylsulfonyl‐PCBs (MeSO2‐PCBs) in wildlife from the later regions is ...

  • Managing compliance: Hazardous Waste Management: Understanding EPA and state-level categories, numbers and reports

    Many companies often are surprised to discover exactly how much hazardous waste they generate. A company can be considered a hazardous waste generator if it uses, produces or stores anything from oil-based paint to hydrofluoric acid. If a company uses, stores or generates a certain amount of materials ranging from oil-based paint to hydrofluoric acid, it is required to register with EPA and ...

  • Management of sewage sludge and ash containing radioactive materials

    Approximately 50% of the seven to eight million metric tonnes of municipal sewage sludge produced annually in the US is reused. Beneficial uses of sewage sludge include agricultural land application, land reclamation, forestry, and various commercial applications. Excessive levels of contaminants, however, can limit the potential usefulness of land-applied sewage sludge. A recently completed ...

  • Nitrogen and sulphur transformations in composts containing chicken feathers

    Chicken feathers composted with pine bark and rye straw are subject to intensive mineralisation and biotransformation with efflux of water-soluble components: N-NH4, N-NO3 and S-SO4. The content of N-NH4, N-NO3 and S-SO4 in water extracts of the studied composts was positively correlated with the time of composting. The release of those components reached a maximum after 15 weeks of composting ...

  • FTIR gas analysis improves container safety

    Introduction Entry to freight containers represents a significant hazard to staff responsible for inspection, stuffing or destuffing because of the large number of airborne chemicals that can be present. Research in Germany and the Netherlands found hazardous levels of gases and vapours in around 20% of all containers and this level of contamination is now accepted as commonplace. It ...

  • Waste composting as a component of ecological waste management in the Philippines

    Ecological waste management (EWM) is a system of analyzing solid waste concerns and coming up with solutions that would not pose any harm to the environment. This would imply the use of technologies that are environmentally sound such as waste segregation, waste reduction at source, composting and recycling. Furthermore, this system ought to comply with the vision of sustainable ...

  • 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 ...

  • Information on Waste Management Practices

    The European Topic Centre on Waste (ETC/W) has prepared this technical report on the design of catalogues on waste management and waste minimisation. During the initial stages of the work, it became evident that basic work related to data, structure and definition of common code-lists was necessary to ensure that the catalogues, at a later stage, can be used as integrated parts of the ETC/W data ...

  • Waste Generation and Management

    Abstract Reported total waste generation within the EU and the European Free Trade Area increased by nearly 10% between 1990 and 1995, while economic growth was about 6.5% in constant prices. Half the waste comes from the manufacturing industry and construction and demolition activities, while municipal waste, mining waste and waste from other sources each contribute about one sixth of the ...


  • Waste management regulations

    In recent years, utilisation of biowastes (especially biowaste composts) has gained greater significance in the Federal Republic of Germany. Whereas less than 1 million tonnes of biowaste was source separated and utilised in 1990, more than 6 million tonnes of biowaste are currently used as fertilisers after composting or digestion. Since composting of source separated biowaste has gained a ...
