  • Composting and biogasification for senna pod waste stabilization

    A medical factory in Finland extracts sennocid from pods of a senna plant with a solvent containing methanol and water. Sennocid is the active compound in some constipation medicines (Otavan Iso Kasvitietosanankirja, 1981). The extraction process produces 50 m3 of pod waste weekly. In 1998, 757 tons of pod waste was produced. The water and methanol contents of the waste are approximately 25 w/w-% ...

  • Removal of VOCs from Spent Aerosol Cans

    There are over three billion aerosol cans manufactured in the U.S. annually, 60% of which are consumed by households. Many of the products contained in these cans, such as paint products, light lubricants, starting fluids, polishes and waxes, and cleaners, contain substantial amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as solvents and include flammable propellants. As a result, partially empty ...


  • Two Case Histories of Industrial Water Reuse Via Membrane Technology

    Abstract This paper describes two successful applications of ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology used to reclaim water, reduce waste water discharge costs. The first case history covers oily waste water treatment at a major aluminum beverage can manufacturing plant. The second case describes treatment of waste water from a multi-plating bath section of a major ...


  • Companies and people leading the restructured environmental services industry in Canada
