  • Carbon offsets from organic waste conversion projects

    The Climate Act ion Reserve (the Reserve) has long had a protocol to give credit for the capture and destruction of methane emissions from organic waste in landfills, but they have now opened up the possibility of credits for projects that prevent that waste from entering landfills in the first place. In October 2009, the Reserve adopted the Organic Waste Digestion Project Protocol, covering both ...

  • Conversion of food waste into hydrogen by thermophilic acidogenesis

    Conversion of food waste into hydrogen by thermophilic acidogenesis was investigated as a function of organic loading rate (OLR), hydraulic retention time (HRT) and pH in a continuous stirred tank reactor. In order to identify hydrogen-producing microorganisms, denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) – amplified V3 region of 16S rDNA analysis was ...

  • Workshop Proceedings: QUOVADIS Waste-to-Fuel Conversion? A Thinkshop

    Waste incineration practices are currently being diversified and optimised in terms of the efficiency of the recovery of the energy embedded in the waste. One of these tendencies is the conversion of non-hazardous waste into an adequate form for utilisation in an efficient combustion process. The fact that Directive 2000/76/EC on the incineration of waste (WID) now covers both incineration and ...


  • Municipal solid waste - waste to energy conversion in India: an overview

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) is generated in enormous quantities, in India, causing environmental problems. It is collected primarily by sweeping in India and dumped on the outskirts of urban areas, which pollute the environment. Such MSWs also release methane and carbon dioxide, which are important greenhouse gases. MSW comprises biodegradable material. The MSW disposal methods in India mainly ...

  • Marketing and implementing emerging waste conversion technologies: the local effect

    Solid waste management in the U.S. has always been a uniquely local endeavor. Typically, landfilling has provided the most efficient and least expensive option for solid waste management by local governments. Recently, there has been an increasing demand for clean, affordable alternatives to landfilling and other traditional forms of waste disposal. Throughout the world, mainly in Europe and ...

  • Septic Tank Conversion for septic tank Treatment

    Your septic system is a mixture of a motorized and organic system. Septic pumping check is a reasonably priced process when measured up to with replacing your septic system. Septic pumping service is indispensable to keep your tank, drainpipes, and sewer in good functioning order. A concrete made septic tank can also accomplish the passage point and flood into the leakage bed, where they bung ...

  • Alkaline hydrothermal conversion of agricultural waste Bagasse Fly Ash into zeolite: utilisation in dye removal from aqueous solution

    Sorption of Methylene Blue (MB) was studied using zeolite (ZFA) synthesised from Bagasse Fly Ash (BFA). Sugar industry waste, BFA, was effectively and efficiently used to synthesise zeolite by alkaline hydrothermal method. ZFA and BFA were characterised using various techniques such as X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Batch sorption ...

  • Fat, oil and grease waste from municipal wastewater: characterization, activation and sustainable conversion into biofuel

    Fat, oil and grease (FOG) recovered by the oil/water separator of a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) were sampled, characterized, activated and converted into biofuel. Free acids (50–55%) and fatty soaps (26–32%) not only composed the main components, but they were also easily separable from the starting waste. The respective free fatty acid profiles were ...

  • Conversion of solid organic waste into compost using Trichoderma spp. and its application on some selected vegetables

    This study was conducted to evaluate the potentiality of Trichoderma species as a bio-conversion agent for composting of solid organic waste and examine the effects of produced composts on the growth of two types of vegetables. The experiments were conducted both in vitro and in vivo processes. In vitro conversion of solid organic waste, the highest height and weight losses were found 42.64 ...

  • Sludge accumulation and conversion to methane in a septic tank treating domestic wastewater or black water

    Although the septic tank is the most applied on-site system for wastewater pre-treatment, limited research has been performed to determine sludge accumulation and biogas production in the tank. Therefore a dynamic mathematical model based on the Anaerobic Digestion Model No. 1 (ADM1) was developed for anaerobic digestion of the accumulated sludge in a septic tank treating domestic wastewater or ...

  • Methane conversion efficiency as a simple control parameter for an anaerobic digester at high loading rates

    The anaerobic digestion process is globally applied to the treatment of highly concentrated wastes such as industrial and rural effluents, and sewage sludge. However, it is known to be relatively unstable. When loaded with high concentrations of organic material, unwanted volatile fatty acids (VFA) are often produced rather than methane (CH4) gas which can lead to digester acidification and ...

  • Waste in the Netherlands

    Household waste More than 10% of waste arisings in the Netherlands consists of household waste. The local authorities are responsible for collecting this category of waste. A set of rules compels the local authorities to collect separately organic household waste, glass, paper and board, textiles and small chemical waste. The policy aims at giving producers more responsibility for their products ...


  • Gasplasma transformation of waste streams

    The Gasplasma process developed by Advanced Plasma Power is an advanced thermal conversion (ATC) technology which has been developed for the treatment of a wide range of organic and inorganic wastes, including household wastes, hade wastes, wastes derived from landfill, and biomass.

  • Turning waste into power

    Economic, social and environmental factors dictate the necessity to manage waste to a new level. Wastewater plants, landfills, farms and food plants are all the owners of biomass that can be digested to produce biogas and turned into power. Biogas can be burned directly in boilers for heat recovery and used for manufacturing, heating or cooling; this is the simplest method of direct biogas ...

  • Wasting time on interrupts?

    According to a study by Time Magazine in January 2006, workers in the US are interrupted on average every 11 minutes, either through email, phone calls or conversations with colleagues. In addition to that, people then took 25 minutes or so to refocus on the project or task at hand after the interruption. The study found that interruptions thereby represented some 2.1 hours of every working day ...
