  • Capturing biogas energy to increase your business profits while safeguarding the environment

    Methane is a biogas produced from swine or cow manure, as well as food processing and meat packing waste. Methane is a natural gas, that when left uncollected, contributes to the harmful greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. When biogas is captured under a cover and becomes concentrated, it creates a corrosive and toxic byproduct called hydrogen sulfide. The gas generates a rotten egg ...

  • 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 ...

  • Energy waste the size of Japan

    Here is a startling fact: US power plants waste more energy than many countries use, including advanced economies like that of Japan. The wasted energy is in the form of heat thrown off when power plants produce electricity. This is one of the points being brought to light by the International District Energy Association (IDEA), as it promotes new federal incentives for heat efficiency. While the ...

  • Waste to Energy Analysis

    The manufacturing of SRF in a single pass is not a new concept. However, with the environmental efficacy of alternative fuel production under seemingly increasing scrutiny, a one-step process is of growing importance, believes Peter Streinik, Head of Business Unit Waste at UNTHA. There can be no disputing that alternative fuel production is being increasingly acknowledged as a valuable part of ...

  • GTA waste-to-energy?

    While the City of Toronto will utilize its GreenLane Landfill Facility near London, Ontario to manage residual waste in the years to come, neighboring Durham Region (just east of the city) is potentially going in a different direction. Like Toronto, Durham plans to divert up to 70 per cent of waste from disposal, but intends to build a waste-to-energy (WTE) plant, rather than use landfill. On May ...

  • Gasification - The Waste-To-Energy Solution

    Introduction Each year, Americans generate about 250 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste, or MSW—about 4.3 pounds per person per day. This includes “trash” such as kitchen waste, electronics, light bulbs, plastics, used tires and old paint, and yard waste. Despite significant increases in recycling and energy recovery, only about one-third of the total MSW is ...

  • Recycling and Waste-to-Energy in combination for sustainable waste management

    More recycling and Waste-to-Energy (WtE) will reduce net Green House Gas emissions. This is the conclusion of several studies: The European Environment Agency states1:“Increased recovery of waste and diverting waste away from landfill play a key role in tackling the environmental impacts of increasing waste volumes. As recycling and incineration with energy recovery are increasingly used, ...

  • Renewable energy from food wastes

    Food waste is an untapped energy source that mostly ends up rotting in landfills, thereby releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Food waste is difficult to treat or recycle since it contains high levels of sodium salt and moisture, and is mixed with other waste during collection. Major generators of food wastes include hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, residential blocks, cafeterias, ...

  • Resting concerns about wasted energy

    Recently, opponents of wind farm developments, as in those hanging tightly on to the notion of oil is all, have suggested that an increase in wind farm footprints could actually damage the environment by causing dirty air. The phrase is commonly used by sailors to describe the drop in air movement caused by another boats sails catching the breeze. However, this situation is different from wind ...

  • Energy requirements for waste water treatment

    The actual mathematical models describing global climate closely link the detected increase in global temperature to anthropogenic activity. The only energy source we can rely on in a long perspective is solar irradiation which is in the order of 10,000 kW/inhabitant. The actual primary power consumption (mainly based on fossil resources) in the developed countries is in the range of 5 to 10 ...
