  • 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 ...

  • Comparing nonreinforced and internally reinforced GCL

    Water is one of the most destructive forces on the planet, eroding everything from continents to human-made wonders. Water is also a vector by which contaminants spread from landfills and other waste reservoirs. Therefore, creating effective water seals has been a top concern in construction. For many years, factory-fabricated clay products have been the barrier of choice against water and other ...

  • Does your facility need Zero Liquid Discharge Technology?

    If your industrial facility discharges its waste into deep wells, streams, sewers to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), and/or other waterways, it is likely there are some types of regulations on discharging the waste. With an increasing push toward environmental protection, many industrial facilities and effluent regulators are strengthening strategies to reduce industrial process waste. ...

  • An optimisation model for transportation of hazardous wastes

    The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has considerably increased the transport of materials along the US-Mexico borders. Maquiladoras are business entities that are structured to take relative advantages offered by both countries to develop cost-effective products. Current Mexican regulations require that hazardous wastes generated by US companies be shipped back for proper disposal. ...

  • CSAPR - The new transport rule

    The core of the new Transport Rule was published in the Federal Register (76 FR 48208), approximately one year after the main rule proposal (75 FR 45210) (covered in the Fall 2010 Environmental Quarterly, Federal Transport Rule — the “New CAIR” Round 1). The new rule is known by two names. In press releases and on the EPA website, the rule is referred to as the Cross-State Air ...

  • Envision 2050: The Future of Transportation

    What will transportation be like in 2050? Will we all be stuck in one giant traffic jam? Flying to our appointments in personal airborne delivery systems? Teleporting ourselves and our stuff around? Or not going anywhere at all? In large part, the answers to these questions will depend on how we answer two other questions today: What would we like it to be like? And what would it ...

  • The transport of radioactive material

    The first part of this study is devoted to the regulations on the safe transport of radioactive material. The rules applicable to the transport of radioactive material are analysed, along with their elaboration at the international, Community and French levels. The second part will describe the system of civil liability for nuclear damage and the rules applicable to the compensation of the ...

  • Sowing the seeds of smarter transport policy

    Did we miss something? Last year, the European Commission didn’t propose a single new legislative measure to clean up transport. To be fair, it has been spending most of its time worrying about the future of the Eurozone. As a result, for T&E this was the sort of year where seeds for smarter transport policy were sown. We’re optimistic that next year could bring a decent crop of ...

  • Vadose zone modeling of dispersed waste sites in the framework of an integrated stochastic environmental transport and impacts assessment code for the Hanford Site

    The system assessment capability (SAC) is the first total-system stochastic simulator to address inventory distribution, environmental release and transport, and impacts to human health and ecological, economic, and cultural resources from hundreds of radiological and chemical waste disposal sites for the entire Hanford Site in southeast Washington State. Flow and contaminant transport modeling ...

  • Lysimetric studies for modelling radioactive contaminant transport in soils

    To assess the movement of contaminants in the soil mass surrounded by near/subsurface waste repository, researchers have developed several mathematical and numerical modelling techniques. However, most of these techniques consider remolded state of soil mass, which fail to reproduce exact in situ conditions and also have used inactive salts as model contaminants. Hence, in order to model ...

  • A Bayesian network model for assessing natural estrogen fate and transport in a swine waste lagoon

    Commercial swine waste lagoons are regarded as a major reservoir of natural estrogens, which have the potential to produce adverse physiological effects on exposed aquatic organisms and wildlife. However, there remains limited understanding of the complex mechanisms of physical, chemical, and biological processes that govern the fate and transport of natural estrogens within an anaerobic swine ...

  • Fuelling ultra light rail public transport from a Gloucestershire organic waste treatment plant: a feasibility analysis

    Many medium-sized towns and cities face separate problems of traffic congestion and increasing pressure to reduce waste sent to landfill. The intent of the study was to determine whether the utilisation of biohydrogen from organic waste, as a transport fuel, can provide a holistic solution for municipalities to meet renewable energy and waste reduction targets in medium-sized towns. The study ...

  • Transportation cost analysis of the Hellenic system for alternative management of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

    This work presents an ex post analysis of the reverse logistics system for the alternative management of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) in Greece, in view of the system's initiation in 2004. The aim was to predict how this system would provide guidelines concerning facility locations for WEEE collection and to calculate the transportation costs for WEEE management. A ...

  • Biodiesel fuel for transportation: Status and issues in the United States

    The United States consumed 3.39 billion barrels of gasoline, 1.54 billion barrels of diesel fuel, and 0.59 billion barrels of jet fuel in 2007. And it currently imports 3.66 billion barrels of oil and petroleum products per year, 65% of US consumption, compared to 1.71 billion barrels (or 36%) 20 years ago. To address the growing gap between petroleum consumption and domestic production, the US ...
