  • Why are waste operations installing on-board scales?

    Given the rising cost of operating waste collection vehicles, it is becoming more important to evaluate the use of on-board weighing systems to reduce operating costs, meet new safety standards and improve fleet efficiency. Electronic on-board scales are not new. They were introduced more than 30 years ago into trucking applications where monitoring gross vehicle or payload ...

  • 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 ...

  • The risky business of resource recovery

    Waste management operations, like any transport business, have many risks attached to them and all operators should avoid the “Dodgy Brothers” ignore-the-risks to save costs approach! Any transport business with large vehicles working in tight city and site access areas is prone to accidents and near miss incidents. Add to that the hazards of working with lifting, loading and compacting systems. ...

  • Sintered Metal Manufacturing 1

    This facility generates 2 waste streams from their metal sintering operations. The first waste stream comes from their cutting oil operations and rinse water. The wastewater is then stored in several tanks and allowed to partially separate with some of the floating oil skimmed off. The residual wastewater (3,000 gallons/week) is then hauled off site for disposal at $1.15/gallon. The treatability ...

  • Industrial ecology: an overview

    Industrial ecology is a young discipline that considers industrial and commercial enterprises as an ecosystem analogous to biological ecosystems. Its organising principle is that industrial systems should emulate the best features of biological ecosystems, thereby reducing energy and material consumption and waste generation. The benefits of such operations are reduced environmental damage and ...

  • Waste Management in Sparsely Populated Arctic Areas

    Waste management practices are dynamic and space-specific. The Finnish environment is not uniform; no practice would fit to every corner of the country. Therefore, there is a need for specific regional research. The paper reports on a multidisciplinary collaboration that aims at solving waste problems in special northern conditions. The adoption of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive is ...

  • Transfer station retrofits and expansions: Rethinking inside and outside the box for reuse of your facility

    Existing solid waste transfer stations are being forced into use beyond their planned capacity and design life, and with Capital Improvements Program budgets stretched to the breaking point, financing and constructing a new solid waste transfer station is not always feasible. The rigors of locating and permitting a new solid waste transfer station alone can make the prospects of replacement seem ...

  • What substances or objects should be recycled? The recycling legislative experience in Taiwan

    The legislative framework of waste management in Taiwan has never been efficient, mainly due to unclear definitions and regulations. In 2002, this system was split into two parts by enacting a new law, the Resource Recycling and Re-use Act (RRRA). However, it then became more complicated and recycling effectiveness was impeded. The causes were mainly the unclear definitions, conflicts about the ...

  • Sludge drying beds, Sarasota County, Florida - Case Study

    Dewatering sludge at wastewater treatment plants has traditionally been a major operational concern. Most large operations must use mechanical filter presses or centrifuges to efficiently dewater their sludge. For many smaller operations, however, this equipment is too expensive and too large for their needs. Therefore, many smaller facilities rely on the sand filter drying beds for sludge ...

  • Transfer stations/weighbridge Ops

    Most people involved in weighbridge operations in the waste industry would say to you that nothing much has changed. We think differently! The days of tipping co-mingled waste straight into the ground are nearly gone. City growth has not only filled older nearer tips faster but made it almost impossible to find new locations within economic travel distances. And no one wants a tip right next ...
