  • Case study - Municipal Incinerator (Slovenia)

    WID and BREF-compliant EU showcase municipal incinerator in Slovenia During 2008 Glosfume was asked to supply a ceramic filter which could achieve emission levels below WID. Representing the state-of-the-art in high temperature filtration design rated at 70,589 Am3/hr @ 250 °C. The installation complies both Waste Incineration Directive (WID) and BAT Reference note ...

  • Municipal Incinerator Waste

    The monitoring of metal concentrations in the waste water from municipal incinerators to ensure compliance with the EU Waste Incineration ...

  • Atmospheric impact of a municipal wastes incinerator

    This paper presents a case study of an air pollution dispersion model for the atmospheric impact assessment of a new municipal wastes incinerator (MWI). The capacity of the present MWI will increase more than ten times, and a new high-efficiency flue gas treatment system is projected. The environmental impact study has been focused on the long-term aspect of the air pollution (chronic pollution) ...

  • Metal releases from a municipal solid waste incineration air pollution control residue mixed with compost

    The influence of 10 wt.% mature compost was tested on the heavy metal leachate emissions from a calcium-rich municipal solid waste incineration air pollution control residue (MSWI APC). Apart from elongated columns (500 and 1250 mm), an otherwise norm compliant European percolation test setup was used. More than 99% of the metals Al, As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe and Ni were left in the APC residue after ...

  • Analysis of PCBs in emission samples: non ortho, mono-ortho and homolog totals by level of chlorination

    IntroductionPolychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are one of the most widespread persistent organic pollutants, identified in every component of the global ecosystem. A production of approximately 2 * 10 9 Kg technical PCB occurred form 1930 to the late 1970 1 and the total amount released into the environment is estimated in 370. 000 2 tonnes. Twelve of the possible 209 PCBs are non- and mono-ortho ...

  • Simulation of the plume emitted by a municipal waste incinerator in Madeira Island

    TAPM (The Air Pollution Model) was applied to Madeira Island to simulate the behaviour of the plume of a municipal waste incinerator that was constructed in the southern slope of the island at an altitude of 1380 m. TAPM simulates very well the atmospheric flow that occurs around the island and inside the inner valleys under strong synoptic forcing. Validation tools reveal the good agreement ...

  • Optimizing Baghouse Performance in Waste-to- Energy Incinerator

    An end user with many years experience, operating3 different Municipal Waste Incineration plants, decided to build a new “state of the art” plant. After fully investigating the performance of different types of filter media, he decided upon GORE-TEX® membrane on GORE-TEX® felt, as he was convinced that is was the “best available ...
