  • Waste materials are an underused resource the construction of Europe`s roads

    Recycled waste material could play a major role in the construction of roads in Europe, bringing both environmental and economic benefits. A new study proposes a scenario where 50% of the asphalt for Europe's roads consists of recycled materials, leading to significant reductions in costs, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. According to the European Waste Framework Directive, there is a ...

  • Why Are CHP Closing All Over The World?

    Burning of coal nowadays has become a big problem. The main reason for this is a rapid increase of mankind. So, China burns half of coal in the world. Since 2000 the share of coal in world energy production has increased from 25 to 30%, and the Chinese economy is responsible for 82% of this growth. In Beijing, it is customary to use ...

  • Life Among The Heavy Metals

    Authors in scientific and applied works interpret the meaning of the concept "heavy metals" in different ways. Today, they include more than 40 chemical elements with an atomic mass of more than 50 atomic units. An important role in the determination of heavy metals is played by the following conditions: their high toxicity in relatively low concentrations, and the ability to bioaccumulation. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Fugitive Gas Emissions In The Petroleum & Natural Gas Industry

    Challenge: Fugitive emissions in the petroleum and natural gas industry can come from a variety of sources and are classified as intentional (venting from tanks, compressor vents and stacks) or unintentional (equipment wear and tear, improper assembly, damage or manufacturing defects).  Most of these fugitive gas leaks are considered insignificant or  too small to ...

  • Estimation of HAP Emissions from Oil and Gas E&P Operation Wastes

    Wastes generated from oil and gas Exploration and Production (E&P) operations contain chemicals that are considered as toxic air pollutants for the purpose of toxic release inventories (TRI) reports or hazardous air pollutants (HAP) under Title III of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. A study was conducted to estimate HAP emissions from E&P waste management operations on a per-event basis. The ...

  • Greenhouse gas emission potential of the municipal solid waste disposal sites in Thailand

    Open dumping and landfilling are the prevalent solid waste disposal practices in Thailand. Surveys on the disposal sites revealed the presence of 95 landfills and 330 open dumps. Methane emission potential at these sites was estimated by three methods. Results of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) method, Landfill Gas Emission model (LandGEM), and closed flux chamber technique ...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions from waste management-assessment of quantification methods

    Of the many sources of urban greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, solid waste is the only one for which management decisions are undertaken primarily by municipal governments themselves and is hence often the largest component of cities’ corporate inventories. It is essential that decision-makers select an appropriate quantification methodology and have an appreciation of methodological ...

  • Controlling H2S Emissions from Landfill Gas

    A major US waste handling company operates a large landfill in Florida, and in 1992, when Hurricane Andrew struck southern Florida, the landfill saw a huge increase in the amount of C&D waste. Shortly after this, the levels of H2S started dramatically rising. This company evaluated several technologies for the removal of H2S, which was estimated to be as high as 5000 ppmv, with up to 2-3 tons/ ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Comprehensive analysis of greenhouse gas emissions in Hungary

    This paper overviews the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions in Hungary in the period 1985–95. The emissions have been determined and reported according to the IPCC methodologies. The emissions of greenhouse gases decreased until 1994, basically as a result of the economic recession. Hungary has chosen the yearly average emission level of 1985–87 as the base level. In 1994, greenhouse gas ...

  • Characterization of solid waste and determination of the emission potential

    Waste samples were taken in order to investigate the material behaviour regarding different treatment/recycling options. In waste incineration, the combustible and inert parts have to be determined. The content of biodegradable organic substances is important in biological treatment. The portion of biodegradable organic substance has also to be considered if wastes are to be landfilled. This ...

  • Utilisation of Municipal Solid Waste Compost as landfill cover soil for reducing greenhouse gas emission

    Municipal Solid Waste Compost (MSW-C) was introduced for improving landfill cover soil properties and enhancing methane oxidation. The landfill cover soil was irrigated with leachate for maintaining appropriate moisture content for methane oxidation reaction. It was found that MSW-C was an effective landfill cover material for landfill gas emission control exhibiting the highest Methane Oxidation ...

  • Compost biofiltration: an effective biological treatment system for treating volatile organic compounds from waste gas emissions

    Biofiltration, a simple technique involving microorganisms supported on a solid matrix, offers an attractive solution for the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The removal of benzene, toluene and xylene (model VOCs) in vapour phase has been compared individually in the present study using three biofilters. These biofilters were operated at different flow rates and concentrations ...

  • Relation between the exergy of waste emissions and measures of environmental impact

    In an attempt to improve methodologies for assessing and predicting environmental impact, the relation between several measures of environmental impact potential and exergy is investigated. Exergy is a measure of the degree of disequilibrium between a substance and its environment. The approach taken compares current methods used to assess the environmental impact potential of waste emissions and ...

  • The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions using various thermal systems in a landfill site

    In this paper, the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from an uncontrolled landfill site filled with Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) are compared with those from controlled sites in which collected Landfill Gases (LFG) are utilised by various technologies. These technologies include flaring, conventional electricity generation technologies such as Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and Gas Turbine (GT) and ...

  • Impact of CO2 Emission Trading Schemes on Residual Waste Management

    ABSTRACT The EU-Emission trading scheme (ETS) in its current design hardly affects residual waste management directly: methane from landfill-sites is not included although it is one of the “Green-House-Gases” (GHG) of the Kyoto Protocol, CO2-emissions from waste incineration plants are generally exempted from the regulation of the directive and emissions from combustion of landfill-site gas can ...
