  • Can trading pollution like stocks help fight climate change?

    The gas produced by hog manure at farms across the U.S. punches holes in the ozone layer, overheats the planet, and angers neighbors with its peculiar odor, a mix of rotten egg and ammonia. All that's needed to clear the air is to cover the manure with a system of tarps that captures the gas, but many farms don't do it because it's too expensive. "If you don't give people incentives to come up ...

  • Recycling Using Antifreeze with Electrodionization

    Recycling used antifreeze makes sense for two reasons: 1) It is cost-effective, and 2) It saves resources. Ethylene glycol, the primary active ingredient in antifreeze, is produced from natural gas, which is a finite, non-renewable resource. For businesses that use a lot of antifreeze, like automobile repair shops, setting up an antifreeze recycling program can significantly reduce management ...

  • Placing recycle bins in public places to be noticed

    It is often the case that even though a large commercial space has taken green initiatives by placing appropriate containers for recyclable and non-recyclable waste, people tend to overlook those and just throw the rubbish in the handiest bin.

  • Comparing Evaporative technologies for the Recycling of produced Water

    Both multi-stage and MVR evaporators are capable of producing distilled quality water from produced water.  Distilled water quality ranges from 100 to 500 ppm TDS depending upon the initial TDS of the produced water and the level of concentration of bottoms (waste) obtained. Typical systems are capable of attaining final concentrations ranging from 270,000 ppm to 350,000 ppm TDS.  The ...

  • Aggregates Research: Engineering properties of concrete containing recycled aggregates

    The objective of this project (AGG0079-002) was to identify whether the use of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) affects the applicability of engineering property relations for concrete based on compressive strength given in the structural design Eurocode EN1992 [1] which is referred to here as EC2. It was also to determine whether the ultimate strength of concrete structural members containing ...

  • Shipbreaking thrives again in Belgium

    Shipbreaking began in the Netherlands at the end of the 19th century; in Belgium, meanwhile, the industry took root in 1926 when Henry Van Heyghen started his scrap business in Ghent.

  • The history and art of trading scrap with China

    China’s economic growth has created a huge demand for non-ferrous metals which domestic resources cannot fully satisfy. As a result, opportunities have opened up over the last decade or so for overseas suppliers of a range of non-ferrous scrap. However, exporting such materials to China can be a complex affair. This article is based on a speech given by Joe Zhou of experienced Chinese importer ...

  • Reducing the environmental impacts of metal castings through life-cycle management

    A reduction in casting weight, through material property enhancement and improved design, positively impacts the whole life cycle. Reducing a casting's weight not only reduces the foundry's environmental impacts but also, the demands for raw materials and energy inputs and, if that lighter casting is used in a transport application, fuel consumption and carbon dioxide output associated with the ...
