  • Diverting waste from landfill - effectiveness of EU waste-management policies

    With landfill at the bottom of the European waste hierarchy, policies to divert waste from landfill play a very important role within European and national waste policies. This report analyses the effectiveness of implemented policies on the diversion of total municipal waste and biodegradable municipal waste from landfill in the context of the 1999 EU Landfill Directive and other relevant ...

  • Thermal Treatment of MSW - Can we Afford Recycling at the End of the Pipe?

    Incineration has clear environmental advantages over direct landfilling since it reduces the risk of pollution of water resources and prevents greenhouse gas emissions. If incinerators are equipped with metals recovery stages, they can be used as recycling processes for mineral materials and metals. Such separating incinerators may become competitive with separate collection schemes for metal ...

  • Healthcare Waste Diversion from Landfills & Total Destruction

    Our Health Matters.  The spread of disease is now an epidemic.  Healthcare Waste (hospital, funeral homes, labs, car homes, patient's waste in homes) disposal  59% is going to landfills contains potentially infectious waste.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdTtdyQVdLs  Biomedical waste managed under Regulations accounts for only 7% of the waste ...

  • Dangerous Substances in Waste

    Abstract The report focuses specifically on environmental risks associated with the main final disposal technologies, landfilling and incineration. The main objective of the report is the analysis of these technologies and the description of the related emissions, the ranking of dangerous substances and a selection of relevant waste streams, for further studies, which are responsible for the ...

  • How do you solve a problem like plastic pollution?

    From our homes to our workplaces, schools, supermarkets, shopping centers and places in between, plastic is everywhere. But what happens to all that plastic when it reaches the end of its useful life? Some is recycled, while the rest ends up in landfills, incinerators and the environment. A new report by the United Nations Environment Programme — ...

  • Heavy metals in wet scrubber residue from a medium–sized (32 MW) municipal district heating plant incinerating wood and peat in a fluidised bed boiler

    Due to the low total concentrations of heavy metals and extractable compounds, it is recommended that the wet scrubber residue be used as a construction agent instead of being disposed of in landfills. According to five–stage sequential extraction, the highest concentrations of most of the heavy metals occurred in the residual fraction (i.e., HF + HNO3 + HCl), which means that ...

  • Economic Evaluation of PVC Waste Management

     Abstract This study presents the main economic implications of diverting some relevant PVC waste streams from incineration to alternative options such as landfill and mechanical recycling. The analysis is based on three different scenarios. For each scenario the financial costs avoided and incurred are estimated, and the major environmental burdens are identified and quantified. As far as ...

  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of PET bottles and comparative LCA of three disposal options in Mauritius

    Disposal of the increasing volume of used Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles has been a cause for concern for the Mauritian Government. To assist Government in decision-making, a study on PET bottles and its disposal was undertaken using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tool. Three disposal scenarios, namely (100%) landfilling; (100%) incineration; and 50% landfilling and 50% incineration ...

  • Management of organic content in municipal solid waste - a case study of Lahore

    Poor solid waste management (SWM) is one of the leading obstacles for absolute clean and healthy environment. Growing economy of Lahore has rapidly increased growth rate which in turn has flared solid waste generation. Municipal solid waste is contributing heavily to air, water and land pollution and a major portion of municipal waste is organic. Generally considered unfruitful, this organic ...

  • Hazardous waste cleans up its act - Case Study

    Instead of landfill, incineration is being used increasingly in the UK to dispose of waste while recovering energy. The processes for controlling air pollution at these facilities creates a hazardous waste that represents approximately 3.5% of the original waste input by mass. Around 170,000 tonnes of Air Pollution Control (APC) residue, the hazardous by-product of incineration, is created every ...

  • Landfill Crisis: Rethinking Issues of Waste Management in South Africa

    As a result of the closure of many landfills in South Africa and the difficulty of locating new sites, there is now a need to rethink the issue of waste management. The National Waste Management Strategy (initiated in 1997) of South Africa advocates the implementation of integrated waste management strategies in order to meet socio-economic and environmental requirements. This paper reports on an ...

  • Recycling, waste-to-energy to play an important part in reducing CO2

    More recycling and waste-to-energy programmes will reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. This is the conclusion of three recently published studies. A new briefing released by the European Environment Agency (EEA) states that: “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 ...

  • Comparison of phosphorus recovery from incineration and gasification sewage sludge ash

    Incineration of sewage sludge is a common practice in many western countries. Gasification is an attractive option because of its high energy efficiency and flexibility in the usage of the produced gas. However, they both unavoidably produce sewage sludge ashes, a material that is rich in phosphorus, but which is commonly landfilled or used in construction materials. With current uncertainty ...

  • Establishment of industrial solid waste treatment costs of the mechanical industry – a case study in Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam

    Survey results from 72 mechanical manufacturers in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in conjunction with related studies showed that industrial solid waste – hazardous waste (ISW-HW) treatment charges were operated in two forms: fixed and varied based on generated ISW-HW mass. Charges of collection – transport – storage – treatment – landfill for each waste composition varies widely (5 ÷ 20 fold), ...

  • Zero landfill, zero waste: the greening of industry in Singapore

    This paper reviews how a land-scarce city-state is trying to achieve its goals of zero landfill and zero waste through the greening of industry. The main challenges Singapore confronts in its solid waste management are an increasing volume of industrial waste generated, a shortage of land for landfills, and escalating costs of incineration plants. To green its industries, there has been a ...

  • Conception of a Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) incineration plant and its environmental benefit

    Since landfill ban was realised in July 2009 in Germany, wastes that have a high and middle calorific value must be incinerated. Fossil fuels like oil and coal for the generation of electricity and/or heat can be substituted, so that approximately 4 million tons of CO2 could be avoided. Waste incineration is a possible partial solution for avoiding worst ...
