  • Nanoparticles present in residues of waste incineration plant

    The use of nanomaterials in consumer goods is growing, as is their presence in waste. A new study is the first to follow the fate of engineered nanoparticles through the entire waste incineration chain. The results indicate current filter technology is effective in removing nanoparticles from flue gas, but that nanoparticles also bind to residues, such as fly ash and slag, which eventually end up ...

  • Update of an old Rotor Shear at a incineration plant

    Attero Moerdijk is a large incineration plant for household and bulky waste, processing about 1 million tons of waste per year. Previously a Lindemann rotor shear was used to shred the bulky waste before incineration, but due to high wear and maintenance costs and limited capacity it was taken out of production several years ago. With no shredding facilities on-site, for the past few ...


  • Global Incineration and Incinerator Technologies Market Report

    While global growth in incineration staggered in the wake of the global economic turndown, global incineration markets are well-poised for continued recovery and consistent growth. Since 2008, global markets for incinerators have resurged from $7.9 billion to $9.2 billion in 2012 (CAGR of 3.9%). By 2022, global markets will more than double, reaching a value of $16.8 billion (2012-2022 CAGR of ...

  • House prices unaffected by incinerator plants - Cranfield research

    A new research study has found no significant effect of waste incinerator plants on long term local property prices. The installation of waste incinerator plants – or Energy from Waste (EfW) facilities – is often contested in the UK. Arguments such as health, cost, noise, odours, traffic movement, resources depletion and house prices are often cited as reasons against the development ...

  • New incinerator for waste recycling opens

    Six years after planning permission was granted, the Isséane waste recycling centre on the southern edge of Paris has opened for business. This month, the incinerator started producing heat from household waste. For recycling, the rotary screens are currently being run in on the first deliveries of waste, and the system for processing bulky waste is starting trials. Although construction works ...


  • Calls for coalition to clarify policy on incineration

    Despite several positive environmental pledges in its manifesto, the new coalition government needs to be clearer about its policy on the future of incineration, according to a national anti-incineration group.

  • Recovering and recycling phosphorus from incinerated waste

    Phosphorus can be extracted in viable quantities from fly ash, a by-product created when municipal solid waste is burnt in incinerators, according to research conducted in Sweden. Sufficient phosphorus could be recovered from the country’s incinerators to meet 30% of the Swedish annual demand for mineral fertilisers, say the researchers. A substantial amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) ...

  • Complex issues with incinerating liquid and gaseous residues

    Production processes in the chem-ical and pharmaceutical industries give rise to gaseous and liquid residues that are preferably disposed of in decentralized incinerators.

The complexity of these often toxic substances requires the use of special equipment for the incineration ...

  • Surrey County Council drops incinerator plans

    Surrey County Council has axed plans to build two energy from waste plants after improved waste and recycling rates meant there was no need for such big facilities. In their place, a gasification plant and anaerobic digestion plant will be built to handle 100,000 tonnes of waste each year, instead of the 270,000 tonne capacity the incinerators offered. Leader of the council Dr Andrew Povey said: ...
