  • Characteristic and potential sources of polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins and dibenzofurans in agriculture soils in Beijing, China

    Polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) were analyzed in 25 background and 80 agriculture soil samples collected from 21 sites in Beijing, China. The levels of PCDD/Fs in the north agriculture soils were low (0.15–0.58 ng I‐TEQ/kg), which were compatible with those of the background soils (0.091–0.35 ng I‐TEQ/kg). However, in the south agriculture soils, there was an ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Halogenated VOCs in Soil, Sediment and Sludge

    Soil vapor extraction (SVE), thermal desorption, and incineration are the presumptive remedies for Superfund sites with halogenated VOC-contaminated soil. Because a presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site, the presumptive remedy approach will accelerate site-specific analysis ...

  • The impact of advanced digestion on incineration of sewage sludge

    Abstract Traditionally, when incineratin sewage sludge, it was preferable to burn raw undlgested sludge, as digestion - by extracting some of the energy from sludge- subsequently reduce its calorific value. However, when considering incineration as part of a wider strategy, the desicion whether or not to include digestion becomes less clear. Since, virtually all of the requirements of ...
