Retailers are increasingly challenged with meeting EHS regulatory compliance obligations and an intense consumer demand for safer, more environmentally-friendly products. Nearly every aspect of a retailer`s business is impacted by EHS compliance, which requires knowledge and expertise that is far from a core skill set possessed by most of a retailer`s workforce. From sourcing products, to distribution and logistics, to employees handling regulated products, to the proper disposal of hazardous waste, a...Premium
Few industries face the mounting challenges and scrutiny of expanding environmental compliance requirements, ecological mandates, consumer expectations and NGO watch groups as much as electronics and medical device manufacturers. Even before the Sony PlayStation cadmium crisis, the entire supply chain has been inundated by an ever-expanding myriad of legislation, ranging from the EU Directives on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), the restriction of hazardous substances (Premium

The content of WEEE (electrical and electronic waste) gives recyclers various initiatives for recycling. It contains hazardous substances, such as lead, mercury or certain flame retardants, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. In 2012 approx. 64,900.000 ton electronic goods where produced and 49.000.000 ton electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) was generated. As the amount of sold electronic goods rise, the amount of WEEE rises. It is vital that this waste is taken care of properly.

One of the greatest challenges facing our society is the reclamation of valuable raw materials from electrical and electronic scrap. A global scrap volume exceeding 40 million tonnes a year – a figure forecast to double by 2025 – presents both a challenge and an opportunity. Since even in Germany only some 40% of scrap is currently fed into a waste management process, we may assume that the global rate of waste management is still substantially lower. With additional support from WEEE Directive...

Application: In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas.

To keep truck drivers, pilots, other drivers and the general public safe on the road, the transportation industry is highly regulated by federal agencies, including the FAA, DOT, FMCSA, FRA and FTA, as well as state and local agencies. Each organization has its own guidelines that must be followed by trucking companies and other transportation, logistics and freight brokerage providers — and those guidelines continue to rapidly evolve.

Separate waste from its packaging by processing through the Dominator. Expired food, faulty packaging or rejected food can all be processed and then used for Anaerobic digestion or added to animal feed. Remove plastics and unwanted foreign objects from rejected food waste. Recovered food can either be dropped directed into a container below the Dominator, mechanically conveyed away or pumped into a tank. Processed plastics can then be recycled.

Due to recent expansion of EPA regulations regarding discharge of water containing contaminants, owners of boats and marinas have had to heighten their awareness regarding waste water containment. If caught discharging any contaminated water overboard, even an ounce or less of light oil mixed with bilge water will produce a visible sheen on the ground or on the water. This is identified by the EPA as a reportable discharge, of which large fines are possible including clean-up costs, and even criminal...
