  • 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. ...

  • Waste Water Treatment Plants

    In 1980, Los Angeles began exploring alternatives to control the H2S concentration in the digester gas produced at the Hyperion Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP), which treats nearly 420 MGD, wastewater generating over 475 tons of raw sludge per day. The digester gas H2S concentration had to be controlled so that the SOx emissions from the on-site combustion of the gas could be kept within ...

  • The Plasma Processing of Steel Plant Wastes

    ABSTRACT: Electric arc furnace (EAF) dusts, have been successfully treated in plasma-fired carbothermic reduction furnaces to recover metal values. Although the technology is equally applicable across the range from plain carbon to stainless steels, historically, it is the latter that has been the more commercially successful. Because the plasma heat source is independent of process chemistry, ...

  • From Waste in Anodising Plant to New Chemical Product in Sewage Treatment Plants

    Aluminium containing caustic soda used as a pickling agent in the pre-treatment of aluminium before anodising and aluminium containing sulphuric acids used as electrolytes for the formation of oxide layers in anodising plants can be utilised in municipal sewage treatment plants to reduce phosphates and improve precipitation. From the anodiser's point of view, these products are spent once they ...
