  • Incineration

    Introduction: High temperatures, 870 to 1,200 °C (1,400 to 2,200 °F), are used to volatilize and combust (in the presence of oxygen) halogenated and other refractory organics in hazardous wastes. Often auxiliary fuels are employed to initiate and sustain combustion. The destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) for properly operated incinerators exceeds the 99.99% requirement for hazardous waste ...

  • Minicipal Waste Incinerator Case History

    Low temperature plant operation had resulted in severe baghouse corrosion and constant dust blockages throughout the system. It was decided to raise the operational temperature of the incinerator and change the acid gas scrubbing agent from lime to sodium bicarbonate. However, the existing felt filter media could not cope with the change in acid gas scrubbing agent and “blinded” very rapidly ...

  • Atmospheric impact of a municipal wastes incinerator

    This paper presents a case study of an air pollution dispersion model for the atmospheric impact assessment of a new municipal wastes incinerator (MWI). The capacity of the present MWI will increase more than ten times, and a new high-efficiency flue gas treatment system is projected. The environmental impact study has been focused on the long-term aspect of the air pollution (chronic pollution) ...

  • Pollutant emissions from modern incinerators

    Emissions of dioxins are mainly from incinerators, domestic and industrial coal combustion, and traffic. However, the major public concern and research effort are associated with the emissions of organic micropollutants from waste incinerators. This paper gives a brief overview of the more recent research and development for the removal of dioxins and heavy metals from flue-gas streams. Special ...

  • Supercritical water oxidation presented as alternative to incineration – An update

    Environmentally benign waste disposal is becoming a more and more acute problem. A process now being commercialised, supercritical water oxidation is demonstrating extremely efficient organic waste destruction (99.99%) plus excellent environmental characteristics (none of the emissions associated with incineration). The process is especially suitable for the treatment of wastewater and sludges ...

  • Contained Gas Rule Changes A Laymen`s Discussion On A Complicated Topic Today`s OXIDIZERS becoming Tomorrow`s INCINERATORS?

    New EPA regulations classifies "oxidizers" as "incinerators", meaning  if this is not changed, the emissions standards and regulatory requirements associated with operating oxidizers become much more complex because incineration rules specify extensive recordkeeping, monitoring and reporting requirements. Last month, when EPA released new rules affecting the combustion of solid wastes most ...

  • Multiple stage scrubbing and adsorption system for Incinerator exhaust at an industrial waste processing plant

    Challenge Monroe Environmental was called upon to purify a 20,000 CFM exhaust stream that was being discharged from an industrial waste incinerator at 2000° F. The pollutants that needed to be removed were: Fine Ash Particulate HCL Gas Mercury Dioxins The combination of soluble and solid pollutants, coupled with the ...

  • Are incineration and landfills the answer to save us from the recycling crisis?

    For plastic recycling, this year hasn’t exactly been one of the best – what is to blame? Oil. Shockingly, it actually costs more to recycle old plastic than it does to make new in many ways. Petroleum prices have fallen so low, as low as 70% below the level in June 2014. This may be great for some – however with it has fallen the cost of Virgin Plastic which is made from ...

  • Recycling Vs. Landfills and Incinerators – Do Benefits of One Outweigh the Other?

    Believing the 2011 survey results of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American nationals generate more than 240 million tons of waste every year. Often referred to as Municipal Solid Waste, this waste originates from households, schools, hospitals, and business establishments. This trash material often finds its place in the wasteland, where it is either recycled, trapped in a ...

  • 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 ...

  • Replacement of a Multiple Hearth by a Fluid Bed Incinerator - The Greensboro Experience (PDF - File size 50K)

    ABSTRACT The incinerator at the T.Z. Osborne Plant in Greensboro, North Carolina burns sludge from its own Waste Water Treatment Plant and sludge pumped from the nearby North Buffalo plant. The two plants have a combined capacity of 36 million gallons per day of wastewater. In 1992, the Osborne plant concluded a study evaluating its options for future municipal sewage sludge disposal. The ...

  • Recycling and Waste-to-Energy in combination for sustainable waste management

    More recycling and Waste-to-Energy (WtE) will reduce net Green House Gas emissions.
