  • Separation

    Introduction: Ex situ separation can be performed by many processes. Gravity separation and sieving/physical separation are two well-developed processes that have long been primary methods for treating municipal wastewaters. Magnetic separation, on the other hand, is a much newer separation process that is still being tested. Gravity Separation Gravity ...

  • The Power to Separate

    Gravity separators are effective and economical tools used to process wastewater and stormwater by removing pollutants such as sediment, hydrocarbons and debris through the process of sedimentation or flotation. Most separators have few or no moving parts, are easy to maintain and have a successful history of use in many different industrial, commercial and residential applications. Specifying ...

  • Plastics Separation In Compost

    Operators say their number one contamination problem is plastic small, large and in-between - in the compost feedstock and thus in the end product. New study and equipment offer some excellent solutions. An air separation unit from Hawker Corp. is attached to the outfeed conveyor of a screen. Plastic is collected in a tube sock (inset) attached to the fan assembly. PRESSURE in Europe to increase ...

  • Marine Waste Management

    The Reasons of Marine Waste Management New rules from IMO (International Maritime Organization), adopted in July 2011, imply substantial changes for all ship or rig types as early as January 2013. By applying waste management, the ship or rig owner or operator takes control of waste handling with the aim of achieving some or all of the following objectives: 1) To fulfill ...

  • Wood waste product

    A landfill needed a way to reduce their waste stream volume, increase the life of their landfill, and recover a recyclable, marketable product. Wood and yard waste material comprise up to 20% of their entire waste stream volume. Processing and recycling this material will extend the life of the landfill by 20 years. They chose WSM's Model 4864BH Horizontal Hogging System with a customized feed ...

  • Effect of co-managing organic waste using municipal wastewater and solid waste treatment systems in megacities

    A model was developed to calculate the mass and heat balances of wastewater and municipal solid waste treatment plants when these plants operate either separately or together with a mutual dependence on mass and energy. Then the energy consumption, life cycle costs (LCCs), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and effluent quality were evaluated under various scenarios to identify the most effective ...

  • Simple design criteria and efficiency of hydrodynamic vortex separators

    Vortex separators still draw attention from specialists investigating the process of removing particles suspended in liquids. The devices are locally applied for waste water treatment in different systems – from storm waste water sewerage to water circulation in fish ponds. However, the methods for separator design presented in the literature are questionable. The paper presents two ...

  • Separating micropollutants from biowastes using anaerobic treatment facilities

    Recycling of municipal organic wastes from separate collection systems becomes more and more important in the Federal Republic of Germany. Experiences gathered during the last few years indicate that the recovery potential of waste and biosolids strongly depends on quality of the produced composts or their pollutant load. This means that only really low polluted composts will be competitive in ...

  • Drivers of solid waste minimisation in Finnish metal engineering SMEs: the role of Environmental Management Systems

    The paper reports on a survey in Finnish small- and medium-sized metal engineering enterprises (SMEs) with certified Environmental Management System (EMS). Waste awareness has increased after certifying EMS and the treatment of solid waste has improved; source separation of solid waste facilitated the recovery of recyclables and their diversion from landfill. EMS has raised knowledge levels, in ...

  • Solid waste routing

    In today’s struggling economy we are all forced to look at ways to reduce expenses. This applies to private and public operations equally. For the private operation, priorities are placed on maintaining profits—a difficult task in a competitive industry. Raising rates is typically met with resistance from customers, as well as opens a door for competitors to move in. For the public ...

  • The growing E-waste problem

    If your current PC is too slow or running out of storage space, it’s probably more cost-effective to replace it than to upgrade it. But what happens to your computer once you replace it? The workplace mantra of “reduce, reuse, recycle” often ends with office paper and aluminum soda cans. As a result, myriad computers considered obsolete by today’s standards sit unused in back rooms or end up in ...
