  • Government decides not to increase incinerator bottom ash tax

    The Treasury is dropping its proposals to increase the rate of landfill tax paid on incinerator bottom ash. Last year (April 2009), the Treasury launched a consultation entitled Modernising Landfill Tax Legislation and proposed to tax incinerator bottom ash at the higher rate for active waste, which is currently £48 per tonne, as opposed to the lower rate for inactive waste which is currently ...

  • 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) ...

  • 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 ...

  • Emission rules tighten for medical waste incinerators

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's new limits on air emissions will affect most existing hospital, medical, and infectious waste incinerators (HMIWI). This final action will reduce about 390,000 pounds of several pollutants each year including acid gases, nitrogen oxides, and metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury. The agency also is finalizing additional testing, monitoring, and ...

  • New incineration-waste clean-up method brings resource and carbon benefits

    Ash from waste incineration can be made safer simply by mixing it with rice husks, water and other forms of waste ash at temperatures under 100 °C, according to new research. Once dried, the end product not only locks away toxic metals lead and zinc, but also stores carbon. Furthermore, it can be used in the polymer industry to lower costs, improve polymer properties and reduce the use of ...

  • EPA Issues Long-Awaited Final Rule Revising Standards for Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration Units

    On December 20, 2012, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Jackson signed a much-anticipated rulemaking package revising the emission standards for commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units (CISWI). The rule has not yet been published in the Federal Register. The final rule accomplishes two broad goals: it revises the Clean Air Act (CAA) emission limits for ...

  • EU exporting more waste, including hazardous waste

    Waste is increasingly moving across EU borders, for recovery or disposal. This is true for waste shipments between EU countries, and also transfers of waste outside the EU, according to a new assessment from the European Environment Agency (EEA). Increasingly stringent and harmonised waste policies in the EU have led countries to transport more waste material elsewhere, for example if ...

  • Redefinition of waste should increase recycling

    Classifying a host of waste products as raw materials could break down the administrative barriers that currently make them difficult to reuse. Cutting red tape will make it easier to turn millions of tonnes of industrial and commercial waste into usable materials, according to the Environment Agency and Government-funded recycling champion WRAP (the Waste & Resources Action Programme). The ...

  • China: solid and hazardous waste management

    Solid waste management, including hazardous waste and electronics waste treatment, has become a key environmental priority in China. The lack of adequate waste treatment facilities and decades of poor management practices, particularly with respect to hazardous wastes, have combined to create a serious threat not only to the environment but also to public health. China’s solid waste can be ...

  • EIB financing of EU municipal waste management projects

    Within the last 8 years period (2000-2007), the EIB signed loans of around EUR 1,5 billion dedicated to investments in municipal waste management facilities. Nearly EUR 1 billion of the signed amount involves incineration. This represents some 0. 3% of total signed loans of EIB during that period. The projects are located mainly in EU-15, notably FR, DK, IT, NL, UK and often involve efficient ...

  • Waste-to-Energy - A burning issue for tomorrow`s cities

    Long considered a costly problem, municipal solid waste is now emerging as an important revenue-generating feedstock for waste-to-energy systems.
