  • Turn landfilling cost of ragger wire to profit with TANA Shark - Case Study

    Recycling cardboard for use as new packaging material saves costs for the manufacturer. Unfortunately, landfilling the ragger wire that comes as a byproduct of the recycling process is costly. With the help of TANA Shark, this added cost can be turned into profit by separating the metal and selling it to be used again. Ragger wire or pulper tail is the residue of steel wires and plastic that ...

  • Optimizing electrocoagulation process using experimental design for COD removal from unsanitary landfill leachate

    Leachate is the most difficult wastewater to be treated due to its complex content and high pollution release. For this reason, since it is not possible to be treated with a single process, a pre-treatment is needed. In the present study, a batch electrocoagulation reactor containing aluminum and iron electrodes was used to reduce chemical oxygen demand (COD) from landfill leachate (Tunceli, ...

  • Jeonju city - Case study

    This landfill outside Jeonju City accepts waste from Jeonju and two small towns nearby; a total of 600 bales/day of household waste and organic waste (30%) is delivered to this landfill. During mid-November 2001, three of our machines were commissioned and they operated under roof-cover 10 hours/day, 6 days/week. No shredder was required and there is a 60% volume reduction during the baling ...

  • Tire Shredding: Alternatives to Landfills

    For many reasons, whole tires pose a major problem to landfills. The most obvious is the inefficient use of space. The actual rubber of a tire takes up only a small fraction of the space a tire occupies, and the rest of the space is wasted. A less obvious but far more serious problem is that tires may trap methane gasses when buried with other garbage in landfills. When this happens, the tires ...

  • Identification of groundwater contamination zone around a reclaimed landfill using carbon isotopes

    Chemical and isotopic analyses of groundwater from piezometers localized around a reclaimed landfill were performed in order to identify the boundaries of groundwater contamination zone. Spatial distribution of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) concentration and stable carbon isotopes in the groundwater was used to distinguish the piezometers localized within the contaminated aquifer. Background ...

  • Major Considerations in Landfill Closure

    Preparing for the closure and long-term care of a municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) can be an inordinate undertaking. Whether public or private, all landfills eventually reach the end of their active lifecycle. Before closure, a landfill must meet a series of criteria as determined by Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Following closure, those same regulations ...

  • Why You Want Articulated Concrete for Landfill Protection

    A good landfill is one that no one notices. It does not produce odors, contribute to erosion or divert storm water to undesirable locations. The municipality or private entity in charge of it has to make great efforts to keep it that way. One way to do that is by installing articulated concrete. This system of concrete blocks and wires offers landfill protection that is unlike previous options. ...

  • Integration of US/Fe2+ and photo-Fenton in sequencing for degradation of landfill leachate

    The landfill leachate treated by sonication in presence of Fe2+ (US/Fe2+) and then by photo-Fenton achieved the highest total organic carbon (TOC) removal efficiency among the screened processes. The lower initial pH, dosage of Fe2+ and initial concentration of leachate were helpful in raising TOC removal efficiency of leachate by US/Fe2+. The optimal conditions for ...
