  • Shredding tyres stops zika virus breeding

    Zika is a dangerous disease threatening millions of people today in southern hemisphere. It is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Once you get bitten it is too late to do much but what is important is to prevent this mosquito from breeding. Mosquitos typically lay eggs near water because ...

  • On-Site Incineration Tames Arsenal Waste Mixture

    Toxic wastes from various chemical processing activities at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) had accumulated in on-site evaporation basins over many years. The highly corrosive wastes, which posed environmental and potential health hazards, were by-products of the U.S. government’s chemical weapons program during World War 11 and its later weapons disposal program, as weIl as sorne pesticide ...


  • Plasterboard waste recovery from smaller building sites

    Most methods for recovering waste plasterboard from construction sites rely on it being segregated on site into adedicated collection container, such as a skip, bin or bags.  This can be difficult for smaller building sites where spacefor these containers may be limited, and the quantities of plasterboard waste are small thus reducing the costeffectiveness of recovery. However, many small ...

  • Improving the Cost-Effectiveness of Hazardous Waste Site Characterization and Monitoring

    Executive Summary U.S. EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response is promoting more effective strategies for characterizing and monitoring hazardous waste sites. In particular, the wide-spread adoption of a new paradigm which uses an integrated triad of systematic planning, dynamic work plans, and on-site analysis for data collection and technical decision-making at hazardous waste sites ...

  • Case study - Waste site cleaned with one-pass trenching technology

    Waste site cleaned with one-pass trenching technology. An abandoned sand and gravel quarry, with a dubious second use as an industrial waste disposal dumping ground, has been cleaned up with the aid of a technology known as the one-pass trenching method. The site had accepted distillation wastes from a local solvent recycler. Due to odours, the dumping prompted citizen complaints that eventually ...

  • A simple method to check for natural attenuation downstream of abandoned waste disposal sites

    Evaluations of waste sites are based on the assessment of whether conditions for Natural Attenuation (NA) processes are favourable. A method is proposed as a first check for effects of NA in the groundwater emissions. For the application of the method, concentrations of the concerned substance and of a tracer must be available at observation wells at different distances from the source, ...

  • A procedure for detecting childhood cancer clusters near hazardous waste sites in Florida

    Despite over 20 years of research on childhood cancer clusters and hazardous waste sites, little evidence has been produced to indicate a causal relationship. Nevertheless, the perception of a childhood cancer cluster being located near a hazardous waste site can raise fear and uncertainty, and it demands attention from health officials. To investigate this public health concern, the author used ...

  • Hepatic EROD induction in the common kingfisher from an e‐waste recycling site

    The health effects of exposure to electronic waste (e‐waste) derived pollutants are an important issue. We explored the association between the hepatic levels of e‐waste derived halogenated contaminants, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), and hepatic ethoxyresorufin‐O‐deethylase (EROD) activity of the common ...

  • A dynamite job? Cleaning up trinitrotoluene waste at the Apache powder superfund site.

    The clean up of trinitrotoluene (TNT) wastes and contaminated soils from an abandoned TNT salvage operation is underway at the Apache Powder Superfund Site in Cochise County. Clean-up operations involved an unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey, on-site pre-burn of high-grade materials, excavation, and off-site disposal. Approximately 5,400 lb of high-grade TNT wastes (averaging approximately 33 ...

  • The impact of an open waste disposal site on soil and groundwater pollution

    A study has been carried out of a waste disposal site, located in the valley of a small creek, 3 km south of Canakkale city centre. The surface area of the site was around 101000 square metres, and the total amount of waste deposited at the site since 1990 was approximately 1001000 tons. The major risks of the dump are its closeness to the university campus area to the south, the airport to the ...
