  • Faecal sludge as a solid industrial fuel: a pilot-scale study

    Revenues from faecal sludge (FS) treatment end products could offset treatment costs and contribute to financially viable sanitation. In urban sub-Saharan Africa, energy-producing resource recovery has the potential to generate greater revenue than use as soil conditioner. In contrast with wastewater sludge, the technical feasibility of using dried FS as solid fuel in industries has not been ...

  • Construction site health and safety failures

    As what is largely agreed to be the world’s most dangerous industry, construction site Health and Safety failures constitute potentially severe harm to worker wellbeing, with the capacity to severely impact quality of life or – put bluntly – end it. Running contrary to this doom-laden approach though, improvements to the industry typically arise from assessing ...

  • How to Choose the Best ZLD System for Your Facility

    An industrial company that produces wastewater as a byproduct of its process will usually require some type of wastewater treatment system to help it avoid harming the environment, human health, and the facility’s process if the water is being reused. The water treatment system will also help the facility evade incurring heavy fines and possible legal action if wastewater is being ...

  • MSW Management: Safely Countering the Rise of Landfill Odors

    One of the core challenges of landfill and compost site management is fighting the rise of foul odors. In addition, as communities expand further out from previous areas, they eventually become neighbors to landfills – calling for a comprehensive odor-control approach to countering odor complaints. In fact, compared to other industrial applications such as wastewater treatment and asphalt ...

  • Geophysical applications to solid waste analysis

    Abstract: Case studies of regional landfills show that electromagnetic geophysical methods can accurately and inexpensively define boundaries and thickness of waste. Degradation of putrescible solid waste generates conductive leachate that can be imaged with a frequency-domain terrain conductivity meter. Terrain conductivity measurements can be modified through a simple algorithm based upon ...

  • Performance evaluation of 388 full-scale waste stabilization pond systems with seven different configurations

    Waste stabilization ponds (WSPs) and their variants are one the most widely used wastewater treatment systems in the world. However, the scarcity of systematic performance data from full-scale plants has led to challenges associated with their design. The objective of this research was to assess the performance of 388 full-scale WSP systems located in Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia and the United ...

  • Designing A Better Alternative for Post-Closure Care

    After a landfill has reached the end of its service phase, federal law requires owners to install a final soil cover and maintain it over the next 30 years. This is the traditional strategy that most landfill owners employ and represents a significant cost of business. When all the layers are tallied together, the capping and post-closure period can cost up to $400,000 for a small, 100-acre ...
