  • HeatBlocker on Landfill Compactor for the Waste Industry - Case Study

    Among the most demanding applications for heavy-duty diesel equipment can be found at municipal landfills, where thousands of tons of solid waste are buried and covered every day. These landfill compactors, graders, bulldozers, and excavators operate within a swirl of highly combustible debris, just waiting to alight on a red hot exhaust system and cause an engine fire. In steps Kalb ...

  • Innovative use for a landfill compactor in crushing construction and demolition waste (C&D waste) - Case Study

    Expensive and diesel-hungry waste shredder led to an innovation in crushing construction and demolition waste (C&D waste). The compaction force of a twin drum design landfill compactor is unparalleled. When directed straight down onto the unsorted waste or landfill residue, the solid steel crushing teeth bite into the waste. The crushing is so efficient that the required fraction size is ...

  • 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 ...

  • Challenges at MSW Landfill Sites

    Covering the day’s trash at the landfill Today’s municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills are much more than places to dump household trash. They’re engineered facilities that are designed to hold and isolate the trash from the environment and are governed by both federal and state regulations. Landfill designers and operators face two main challenges ...

  • Reduce costs while achieving an excellent and even compaction rate - Case Study

    Landfill operators want to achieve the best possible compaction rate with the least possible costs. This demands a lot from the compactors, especially a good compaction rate with the least amount of passes and minimal downtime. This was the situation where Sogliano Ambiente, an environmental engineering company located in Sogliano al Rubicone, Italy, chose Tana’s compactors over others for ...

  • Landfill Capping Systems: An Introduction to Options

    Geomembranes, predominately linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), have been used for landfill caps for decades. Waste Management World has noted how,” Generally they have performed extremely well but, not unexpectedly, there have been a few exceptions that have guided us in developing even better systems.” Currently, there are four commonly used options for landfill caps, each with ...

  • Blending of would-be landfill turns out greener cement-based products

    The vision of a greener future for the construction industry motivates Andrew Dennis, an architect here who founded a company dedicated to producing environmentally friendly cement-based products. Instead of the heavy aggregates found in standard concrete, the materials made by GigaCrete Inc. include non silica based sands and byproducts of coal combustion, fly-ash and bottom-ash and recycled ...

  • Break It Down, Build It Up - Sustainable Science Has Roots in ASTM Standards Development

    It was back in the 1980s,” Richard Wool, Ph.D., recalls. “A lot of waste management sites were running out of space. Barges full of garbage were plowing up and down the East Coast with no place to dock. The idea of having biodegradable plastics would address a number of issues like getting rid of the trash and cleaning up marine waste, which was becoming a huge issue at the ...

  • Potential and limitation of UAV for monitoring subsidence in municipal landfills

    Multitemporal topographic measurements are essential for monitoring municipal landfills for economic and security reasons. Accurate evaluation of the landfill volumes still to exploit and the extent of subsidence occurring in the closed plots are critical parameters in landfill management. A municipal landfill located in central Italy has been imaged by a UAV helicopter able to fly in full ...

  • A case study on a sustainable alternative to the landfill disposal of spent foundry sand

    Many small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the UK are being forced to change the way they manage and dispose of waste. In part, this change has been due to the introduction of landfill taxes by the government, implemented to encourage companies to look at suitable and sustainable alternatives. This case study examines the application of key performance indicators (KPI) to monitor SMEs spent ...

  • Types of Compaction Equipment for Different Industrial Setting

    Compaction equipment is used to compress and/or compact different types of materials at a work site. In construction sites different tools and machines are used for different purposes, such as waste around the work area is compacted and then disposed or loose soil around the work site is compacted before the start of the actual construction work.  While compaction equipment is mostly used to ...
