  • Axetris Sensor Field Test

    The Axetris LGDs were operated continuously for two years. After intensive laboratory testing, they went out into the field in 2015. Axetris was able to test the functionality of its sensors under real-life conditions thanks to the support of the Linth waste incineration plant. The gas concentration measuring devices called laser gas detectors ( ...

  • Innovations in Bench Testing of Waste waters

    Wastewater management in developing countries throughout the world is in a state of crisis. It is estimated that 2.6 billion people worldwide live without adequate sanitation. Resources are scarce, previous management systems have failed, and traditional techniques and solutions are not immediate enough, too expensive, or simply inefficient. Discussion with regards to OI Analytics Instrumentation ...


  • Design, manufacture and testing of a waste paper recycling system

    Egypt is facing a major crisis due to the 1997's 40% increase in the price of imported newsprint. This price increase not only affected the press and publishers, but also placed a burden on the educational system, because most of the government textbooks depend on this type of imported paper. This crisis can be solved entirely by recycling waste paper and depending on recycled paper instead of ...

  • Applying & Testing Waste Management Quick Wins

    Executive Summary This project was to implement and test construction waste recovery Quick Wins (QWs) on several case study projects on behalf of the construction team at the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), to investigate construction waste streams and analyse the management and disposal process. The aim was to explore a range of possibilities and best practice options available ...

  • STEP - System for Solid and Liquid Waste Put to the Test

    Wendy Laursen details the System for Environmental Protection (STEP) system which is being installed inside a twenty-foot ISO container to be trialled onbard the Canadian Coast Guard vessel, Pierre Radisson.   The STEP container houses Terragon's single-drum Micro-Auto Gasifciation System (MAGS) and Wastewater Electrochemical Treatment Technology (WETT).  MAGS aims to ...

  • Laboratory tests describing the biological reactivity of pretreated residual wastes

    In Austria as well as in Germany, several ideas have been put forward on how to describe the biological activity of waste. Gas-generation potential, respiration activity and analysis of material groups ('Stoffgruppenanalysen' according to Van Soest, 1963) and eluate parameters like TOC, NH4-N, COD and BOD were discussed. The use of the Incubation Test (developed by the Department of Waste ...

  • Reduction of Waste from Synthetic Rubber Testing and Unreacted Styrene: Kemcor Australia

     Kemcor Australia has used cleaner production processes to reduce waste from synthetic rubber testing and unreacted styrene in small batch production, with significant cost savings. Background Kemcor Australia is a leader in the production of olefins, poly-olefins and synthetic rubber, and is part of the Altona (Victoria) chemical complex, the largest centre for primary ...


  • Textile Dyeing Brazil Waste Water Treatment Treatability Jar Test

    Textile Dyeing Brazil Textile Dye Wastewater Jar Test This facility dyes material and this is a sample of their red dye wastewater. The pH was 10.46 and Floccin 1108 was used at a dosage of 2 grams/1,000 ml (16.7 lbs ...

  • Organic waste biodegradability test bio methane potential method

    Management Summary The biogas production from a mixture of food waste, garden waste, paper, napkins, plastic, metals and glass and anaerobically digested sludge was monitored until gas production had ceased. The homogenised biowaste mixture was subjected to two pre-treatment methods prior to being fed to the BMP reactors, these were: pasteurisation at 70oC ...

  • Comparison of dye testing and electrical leak location testing of a solid waste liner system

    Abstract: Dye tracing and electrical leak location testing were independently conducted to detect and locate leaks in the primary geomembrane liner of two cells in a municipal landfill. Despite extensive quality control and quality assurance programs, water in the leak detection zone after construction indicated that the primary liner had a leak. Fluorescein dye tests were conducted by placing a ...

  • Waste Disposal

    Introduction The final step in the waste management process is waste disposal, the permanent isolation of waste. Some wastes can be managed and disposed safely with existing facilities and proven methods. Other Department of Energy (DOE) wastes require more complex disposal facilities. DOE has conducted extensive research into alternative waste disposal methods and has concluded that deep ...

  • Cutting holes for testing vs. testing for holes

    When it comes to geomembrane quality assurance, are destructive testing practices as effective as basic leak detection technologies? The function of a geomembrane liner is to prevent liquid flow to the environment. CQA measures should be judged on how effective they are in meeting this requirement. This article critically examines the industry’s current means of providing confidence ...

  • Waste not, want not

    Consultant Andy Ive considers solutions which not only comply but also enhance the environmental profile of today’s industrial companies. Until recently the prevailing perception in many industries, particularly those operating in emerging market areas has been that waste is an unwelcome inconvenience. The primary infrastructure of most companies was fundamentally not designed to deal with waste ...

  • Jar Testing for Metals Removal

    Using the chart below, find the metal(s) of concern. Determine the best pH range for maximum insolubility for the metal(s). If there is a combination of metals, then concentrate on the metal with the highest concentration and adjust the pH to this point. Determining the Optimum pH for combined metals: Typically facilities have 2, 3 or more different metals in their waste stream. To determine the ...

  • Axisymmetric Tension Testing of Geomembranes

    The newly developed axisymmetric tension test is useful in evaluating the performance of geomembranes subjected to out-of-plane stress conditions such as those that can develop due to localized subsidence under waste-containment cover and liner systems. In this paper, the equations necessary to describe the geomembrane stresses and strains during testing are derived, and equations used to ...

  • Biodegradation Tests for Wastewater Samples

    Biodegradation Tests for Wastewater Samples Biodegradation tests usually involve comparison of the oxygen uptake of a test sample – or gas production for anoxic or anaerobic tests – to that for a readily biodegradable control substrate (usually acetic acid, ethanol, or aniline). While biodegradation characteristics can vary among chemical types and wastewater sources, typical patterns are shown ...

  • City of Iqaluit to Test MAGS Technology

    aluit will be the site for a new waste management pilot project in Nunavut, testing a micro auto gasification system or MAGS. The system will thermally decompose solid waste and oils, reducing the garbage to eight per cent of its original volume. The process creates thermal energy that will be used to heat nearby buildings, and gas that will be ...

  • MGP Testing (August 1, 2003)

    The overall objective of this project is to determine the feasibility of converting manufactured gas plant (MGP) waste to glass using an oxygen-fueled melter. The equipment used for demonstration purposes is located at the GlassPack Demonstration Facility, owned and operated by Minergy Corp of Milwaukee. Four samples of MGP waste from a Wisconsin location were provided by We Energies, also based ...

  • Effect of drying on leaching testing of treated municipal solid waste incineration APC-residues

    Air-pollution-control (APC) residues from waste incinerators are hazardous waste according to European legislation and must be treated prior to landfilling. Batch and column leaching data determine which type of landfill can receive the treated APC-residues. CEN standards are prescribed for the batch and column leaching test; however, these standards do not specify whether or not the residue ...
