  • AVA Technology for Hazardous Waste Treatment - Case Study

    AVA has developed systems for pre-treating hazardous waste prior to incineration, which leads to higher throughput performance in combination with lower construction and maintenance costs and additional low pollution emissions, in comparison to conventional techniques. The system is based on the principal that constant gross calorific values and regular piece sizes together with consistency of ...

  • Knowledge, attitude and practices toward dioxins in China's waste incineration industry and coking industry

    A questionnaire was used to survey the knowledge and attitude of senior managers toward dioxins at five waste incineration plants and seven coking plants. A field survey was performed to verify dioxin control practices at two of the waste incineration plants and one of the coke plants. All the respondents at the waste incineration plants claimed to be knowledgeable about dioxins and had a ...

  • Conception of a Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) incineration plant and its environmental benefit

    Since landfill ban was realised in July 2009 in Germany, wastes that have a high and middle calorific value must be incinerated. Fossil fuels like oil and coal for the generation of electricity and/or heat can be substituted, so that approximately 4 million tons of CO2 could be avoided. Waste incineration is a possible partial solution for avoiding worst ...

  • UK Abattoir – Rotary incinerator - Case Study

    Designed to process animal remains 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, with the minimum of operator attendance. To optimise the plant’s performance and to enable waste to be processed and stored, irrespective of the status of the combustion plant, the waste is crushed into 50mm cubes. The material is then conveyed into a buffer hopper, which stores sufficient material to enable the plant to be left ...

  • Nuclear Plant in southeastern United States case study

    Turning Liquid Waste into Solid Money Savings using QUIK-SOLID© Project Background: A nuclear plant located in southeastern United States had to dispose of approximately 7,000 gallons (26,488 L) of liquid sludge that resulted from aggressive preventive maintenance activities. The plant stored the watery sludge in B-25 boxes (90 ft each). The slightly ...

  • Thermal Treatment Of Halogenated Inorganic Aqueous Waste With Energy And By-Product Recovery

    This paper describes the incineration technology used to safely destroy the liquid and gaseous wastes containing inorganic salts generated by Bulk Pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. The plants are supplied with dedicated downstream Air Pollution Control System (APC) or energy recovery where applicable. Due to the emergence of new products and increased production in Pharmaceutical and ...

  • Recycling, waste-to-energy to play an important part in reducing CO2

    More recycling and waste-to-energy programmes will reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. This is the conclusion of three recently published studies. A new briefing released by the European Environment Agency (EEA) states that: “Increased recovery of waste and diverting waste away from landfill play a key role in tackling the environmental impacts of increasing waste volumes. As recycling and ...

  • Like a phoenix from the ashes

    Thanks to growing environmental awareness, waste is increasingly being separated and recycled. However, residual waste always remains that can't easily be recycled. This ends up in waste incineration plants (referred to as KVAs in Swiss German) for disposal and reclaiming, such as the KVA Linthgebiet in Niederurnen in the Swiss canton of Glarus. Due to the strict environmental specifications ...

  • 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 ...

  • Incinerator Plant, Lidköping - Case Study

    SWEDEN: Baling of MSW In Lidköping the incineration plant is connected to the central heating systems of the city. However, incineration plants has a high demand for fuel in the winter season and limited demand in the summertime. Inflow of material, however, comes evenly all year around and this gives a need to store waste during the summer. The solution to this is the ...

  • Waste co-incineration in the European Community, is the sky the limit?

    The co-combustion of waste in industrial furnaces -co-incineration- attracts considerable interest in the European Community, because of the combination of perceived business incentives, regulatory developments, and the slate of available technological options. It was found, however, that EU-regulation developed to ensure safe and environmentally acceptable processing of waste represents a clear ...

  • A STIEFEL project UTO Uvrier case study

    The waste incineration plant UTO Uvrier is situated in the south western part of Switzerland. The Association which controls the plant was established in 1969 and treats waste from 44 municipalities with a combined population of 170,000 inhabitants. The principal task of UTO Uvrier is the thermal heat recovery from urban and industrial waste. Apart from this, UTO also treats other types of waste ...
