  • 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. ...

  • Indicators to assess the recovery of natural resources contained in demolition waste

    Demolition waste materials are one of the major industrial waste deposits in many countries and represent an important quantity of potential resources that are not exploited, because the major part of these wastes go to landfill. Indeed, recycling or recovery of demolition waste can reduce the need of primary natural resources. This article gives indicators and a method to analyse demolition ...

  • Plasma resource recovery technology –converting waste to energy and valuable products

    Abstract Plasma Resource Recovery (PRR) is a revolutionary technology that can treat virtually any type of waste by combining gasification with vitrification. Vitrification produces inert slag that can be used as a construction material. Gasification produces a fuel gas containing carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2), used for cogeneration of electricity and steam. The plasma fired ...

  • Managing the end-of-life of railway vehicles for resource recovery

    The railways transport has to be further implemented in the medium and long term to reduce traffic on the road and greenhouse gases emissions. The aim of the paper was the analysis of the end-of-life (EOL) of rolling stock and the evaluation of its management taking into account the sustainable use of resources and the reduction of waste. Considering that, at present, the EOL of this sector has ...

  • Waste Recovery Quick Wins - Improving recovery rates without increasing costs

    Executive summary Implementing good practice waste minimisation and management on construction projects will help to reduce thesignificant quantities of construction waste sent to landfill and make a substantial contribution to sustainable development. Reducing the amount of waste from a construction project will: reduce material and disposal costs; conserve natural ...

  • Resource recovery from source separated domestic waste(water) streams; full scale results

    A major fraction of nutrients emitted from households are originally present in only 1% of total wastewater volume. New sanitation concepts enable the recovery and reuse of these nutrients from feces and urine. Two possible sanitation concepts are presented, with varying degree of source separation leading to various recovery products. Separate vacuum collection and transport followed by ...

  • Calcium Silicate Hydrate Triggered Phosphorus Recovery – An Efficient Way to Tap the Potential of Waste- and Process Waters as Key Resource

    The global economic situation requires the development of sustainable concepts, in order to provide potential recyclables from waste and to recirculate them to the cycles of matter. Considering furthermore the increasing limitation of global phosphate rock resources, the recovery of phosphate from various waste- and process waters is vitally important. Therefore, research has recently been ...

  • Recovery of Lead From Waste Battery Paste

    As a part of our initiatives to obtain lead from waste battery paste, thereby attempting the dual gain of pollution control as well as resource recovery, extensive studies were conducted of which the gist is presented in this paper.An electrolytic method was employed in which the lead paste was suspended in sodium hydroxide as electrolyte. Effect of several parameters : current density, ...


  • Environmental evaluation of systems for the recovery of biogenic wastes

    The recovery of waste materials is promoted by the German Waste Act 'Kreislaufwirtschafts- und Abfallgesetz'. It requires that among the recovery routes available for a specific waste category the priority has to be on those which are more environmentally compatible. As a restriction given by the law, only those recovery routes which are technically feasible and economically reasonable must be ...
