  • Lignin: sustainable alternative to fossil resources

    Trees, grass and straw owe their strength and flexibility to lignin. If this natural adhesive can be isolated from waste materials, then it will become a fully sustainable alternative for many applications. According to lignin expert Richard Gosselink, researchers are able to do more and more with lignin. ‘Lignin is very interesting,’ says Richard Gosselink, researcher at Wageningen ...

  • New Shredder in Indonesia from SSI Shredding Systems Helps Convert Industrial Waste to Alternative Fuel While Lowering Harmful Gases

    With nearly 230 million residents, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and one of the largest producers of industrial waste. For years, the country has disposed of its waste either into landfills or through incineration. Both disposal methods cause harmful methane and carbon dioxide gases to be emitted into the atmosphere. PT Teknotama ...

  • Supercritical water oxidation presented as alternative to incineration

    Finding environmentally benign waste disposal options is becoming more critical. A process now being commercialised, supercritical water oxidation is demonstrating extremely efficient organic waste destruction (99.99%) plus excellent environmental characteristics (none of the emissions associated with incineration). The process is especially suitable for the treatment of wastewater and sludges ...

  • Degrowth offers alternative to global consumer culture

    If everyone lived like the average American, according to the Global Footprint Network, the Earth could sustain only 1.7 billion people—a quarter of today’s population—without undermining the planet’s physical and biological systems. Overconsumption in industrialized societies and among developing world elites causes lasting environmental and human impacts. In his chapter, ...

  • Calciner firing of refuse derived fuels

    Alternative or refuse derived fuels (RDF) are mainly fired in kiln burners, preheater or calciner kilns. Of the greatest importance in this regard is homogenous fuel quality consisting of two-dimensional parts. Alternative fuel for the kiln burner has to be free of disruptive fractions (e.g. metals, stones, glass), which might cause problems in the feeding equipment or the burner itself. ...

  • Green fuel from carbon dioxide

    It is beyond dispute that carbon dioxide (CO2) has an effect on global warming as a greenhouse gas, but we still pump tons and tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every day. A research team at the Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) led by chemist Prof. Dr.Ingo Krossing has developed a new system for producing methanol that uses CO2 and hydrogen. Methanol can be used as an environmentally ...

  • Scots to take the high road to fuel cars

    Researchers at Edinburgh Napier University, UK, are patenting a process to produce biobutanol from whisky by-products. Biobutanol can be used directly in vehicles without engine modification, unlike ethanol. It is not volatile and does not attract water, so makes an attractive biofuel. The team at Napier Biofuel Research Centre focussed their efforts on pot ale, the liquid left over in copper ...
