  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • Thermal Treatment Technologies

    Hot gas decontamination: Hot gas decontamination is a technology still in the pilot-scale of development that can be used for decontamination of explosives-contaminated masonry or metallic structures. The method involves sealing and insulating the structures, heating with hot gas stream to 260 °C (500 °F) for a prescribed period of time, volatilizing the explosive contaminants, and destroying ...

  • In-Situ thermal treatment of MGP waste and creosote

    Abstract: Remediation of coal tar at former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites, and creosote associated with wood preservative sites is challenging due to the viscous nature of the dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) and the modest solubility and vapor pressure of the contaminants of concern (COCs). DNAPL seepage into surface water bodies, as well as groundwater plumes formed by the most ...

  • Treatment of waste thermal waters by ozonation and nanofiltraton

    After their use for heating, e.g. in greenhouses, waste thermal waters may cause environmental problems due to their high contents of ions, and in some cases organic matter (associated with an oxygen demand) or toxic compounds. The aims of this work were to decrease the high organic content of waste thermal water by a combination of ozone treatment and membrane separation, and to investigate the ...

  • What Is Zero Liquid Discharge and How Does It Work?

    Not every industrial facility that produces wastewater will require zero liquid discharge (ZLD). It is usually looked to as a last resort because it can be a complex process that requires a high initial investment. If a facility is located on a site that has severe water scarcity issues and/or astronomical discharge fees, it might be ...

  • Thermal Treatment Of Halogenated Inorganic Aqueous Waste With Energy And By-Product Recovery

    This paper describes the incineration technology used to safely destroy the liquid and gaseous wastes containing inorganic salts generated by Bulk Pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. The plants are supplied with dedicated downstream Air Pollution Control System (APC) or energy recovery where applicable. Due to the emergence of new products and increased production in Pharmaceutical and ...

  • Thermal hydrolysis of waste activated sludge at Hengelo Wastewater Treatment Plant, The Netherlands

    The thermal hydrolysis process (THP) is a sludge treatment technique which affects anaerobic biodegradability, viscosity and dewaterability of waste activated sludge (WAS). In 2011 a THP-pilot plant was operated, connected to laboratory-scale digesters, at the water board Regge en Dinkel and in cooperation with Cambi A.S. and MWH Global. Thermal hydrolysis of WAS resulted in a 62% greater ...

  • Efficient Waste Water Treatment

    Clean drinking water is an essential need of mankind. Often surface water like rivers or lakes is used as drinking water source. To prevent these resources from pollution the effective treatment of waste water is a must. For example in China 75% of discharged waste water is coming from pulp and paper, textile and dyeing industries. To run a waste water treatment plant in the most efficient way ...

  • Waste to energy – processing waste with a high thermal value to substitute combustibles

    With the taking effect of the TASi (Technical Regulations on Estate Waste) in 2005, non-treated waste must no longer be disposed of and deposited. Commercial and industrial residues with a high thermal value such as rejects from paper industry, punchings from rubber and plastics, and other mono-fractions which are characterized by homogeneity and constant combustible properties through mechanical ...


  • Staged Thermal Treatment Combined With Pyrometallurgical Smelting Producing Energy and Products From Waste

    Incineration of waste is considered as a state-of-the-art technology. However staged gasification in combination with pyrometallurgical smelting is ready for market introduction and offers principal advantages. These are higher efficiency (up to 35% electricity), efficient and cheaper fuel gas cleaning (less emissions), high quality secondary products (synthetic basalt), high input flexibility, ...


  • Maximising biogas in anaerobic digestion by using engine waste heat for thermal hydrolysis pre-treatment of sludge

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Dublin's Ringsend WWTP was designed to serve a population of approximately 1.2 million pe with a sludge production of 37,000 dry tonnes per year after upgrading to full secondary treatment. Several technical solutions were put forward as part of a Design, Build, Finance and Operate (DBFO) competition, with the chosen solution being a proposal by Black and Veatch for a ...

  • Chemical, Physical, Mineralogical, Morphology Characteristics of a Thermal Power Plant Washing Waste

    Most of electricity is generated by thermal power plants in Iran. Shahid Rajaee thermal power plant consists of four 250MW natural gas and fuel oil burning units that is located at 100 km west off Tehran. As a result of fuel oil burning in winter time, boilers air heaters are washed and cleaned frequently. The wastewater originating from air heater washing contains suspended ...
