  • Axion: is ‘storing’ waste plastics better than burning?

    As global temperatures head for potentially catastrophic levels, landfilling rather than burning waste plastics might be better for the environment, suggests Keith Freegard, Director of Axion Polymers. Landfill or incineration: what is the best disposal route for our waste plastic materials? Large numbers of energy-from-waste (EfW) plants exist right across Europe and many of ...

  • Combustible Dust: It Doesn’t Take Much

    A dust accumulation of 1/32 of an inch deep—about the thickness of a dime—covering just five percent of a room’s surface area doesn’t sound like much, but it’s enough to cause a catastrophic explosion, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Although good engineering and safety practices to prevent dust explosions have existed for decades, there ...

  • Dam Removal, Gob Fire - Case Study

    Coal Gob Fire Quenching – Wellston, Ohio Removal of a dead lake from a former coal mine in Southern Ohio. While working on removal of a dead lake we uncovered a burning gob fire. We moved 45,000 cubic yards of cut to fill and cut to waste, installed 36" reinforced concrete pipe to relieve the dam, and dewatered over 100 million gallons. We moved over 16,000 cubic yards of earth to ...

  • Modification of waste coal gangue and its application in the removal of Mn2+ from aqueous solution

    We developed a new calcination method to convert coal gangue (CG), a common waste generated from coal production process, into a modified form, which could be used as an adsorbent to remove Mn2+ from aqueous solution. Sodium tetraborate (Na2B4O7·10H2O) was added into the CG calcination process as an additive, and the concentrations of ...
