  • The Waste Industry: Refuse Derived Fuel Hits a New Level

    The Environment Agency published the final data up to the end of December 2014 in February. It shows that the overall tonnage of RDF sent overseas throughout the year topped 2,373,611 tonnes. The figures confirm the rapid growth in demand for RDF from operators in the UK from European energy from waste facilities, with 2014 continuing the trend of increasing exports to facilities overseas. RDF is ...

  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • Thermal behaviour study of senakin coal and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) blends during pyrolysis using thermogravimetric analysis

    Preliminary Thermogravimetric (TG) studies of pyrolysed Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)–coal blends (20 to 80%) at various heating rates, 20, 40, 60 °C•min–1 have been performed to develop an efficient locally sourced renewable solid fuel. The characteristics of the coal/RDF blends followed those of the parent fuels in additive manner. Among the tested blends, 50:50 blends showed the optimum blend ...

  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • Is `Dark Fuel` the same as `Bad Fuel` and can I still use it?

    Algae-X FAQ’sIs 'Dark Fuel' the same as 'Bad Fuel' and can I still use it?This is a question many of us have asked more than once. And what we really want to know is: 'Will the stuff damage my engines?' Engines are expensive, ruining an engine is costly and operating an engine on 'bad fuel' is not wise. We all know that most engine failures start in the fuel tank. When all mechanical parts ...

  • Exergy evaluation of emitted waste gas and fuel consumption in food delivery process

    Food delivery from restaurants and fast food shops by motorbikes is one of the major modes of its distribution. We aim to investigate the environmental impact of food delivery process by motorbikes. The environmental impact was described from the viewpoint of waste gas emission and emission exergy. A university campus was selected as the test site. We extracted the number of food delivery, ...

  • Cutting holes for testing vs. testing for holes

    When it comes to geomembrane quality assurance, are destructive testing practices as effective as basic leak detection technologies? The function of a geomembrane liner is to prevent liquid flow to the environment. CQA measures should be judged on how effective they are in meeting this requirement. This article critically examines the industry’s current means of providing confidence ...
