Waste Monitoring Applications

  • Amusement parks/arenas/tourist attractions

    Vast quantities of rubbish and waste appear rapidly in amusement parks, at major arenas or at popular tourist attractions. Litter bins are quickly overfilled, which makes the area look a mess and is inconvenient. An automated system for emptying litter bins and waste chutes enhances the environment on a number of levels.

    Methane and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Landfill Applications

    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.

    Water quality monitoring for semiconductor industry

    Water is fundamental to the manufacturing process in a semiconductor facility. Electronic components are rinsed or washed several times during the producing process with ultrapure water (UPW) to remove residue. Continuous monitoring of organic constituents (TOC) on the influent city water assist with UPW production. Good quality waste streams for the manufacturing process can also be monitored for reuse potential.

    Water quality monitoring for pulp & paper industry

    Pulp and paper waste streams are exceptionally well suited for spectral analysis due to the high concentration of UV/Vis light absorbing organics in their process water and waste streams. Continuous monitoring of the organic load by means of COD/BOD correlations will help ensure the treatment process is carried out in the most efficient way possible by optimizing aeration rates and nutrient dosing while also making sure that all the regulatory goals are met.

    Water quality monitoring for dairy industry

    Continuous monitoring of process streams and waste streams in a dairy industry setting can provide various benefits to the operators. One major benefit is that it is possible to minimize product lost to the waste stream by means of reliable online monitoring of organics (TOC) at various points in the plant. In addition, due to the nitrogen deficient nature of milk wastes it is possible to optimize ammonia dosing by accurately and continuously monitoring the organic loads entering the waste stream.

    Waste water treatment plants Air quality control by TRS MEDOR Online Odor Monitoring

    ontext & Challenges Globally, the wastewater treatment is the first public health issue. Urban development leads to urbanization near waste water treatment plant and extension of sewerage network. These aspects induce to an augmentation of sulfur compounds (H2S, mercaptans and sulfides) which are very corrosive, odorant and toxic. To monitor this compounds online CHROMATOTEC® offers high meteorological solutions. Odors are very distinct air contaminants as they generate nuisances. The factors playing a role in the determination of odor annoyance are: odor concentration and intensity, frequency, appreciation, duration, synergy and location. CHROMATOTEC® proposes an automatic solution to well identify the origin and the level of odors.

These aspects induce to an augmentation of sulfur compounds (H2S, mercaptans and sulfides) which are very corrosive, odorant and toxic. To monitor this compounds online CHROMATOTEC® offers high meteorological solutions. At the entrance of the waste water plants, where the waste water arrives, strongly smelling and polluted air is captured and neutralised by a chemical cleaning process called ‘’Stripping’’. The correct amount of chemical products needed to neutralise the polluted air has to be calculated.

  • Quantitative Analysis of Steel Using Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)

    For steel analysis, LIBS is ideal for rapid QC (quantitative analysis and detection of contaminants) for raw materials in production, and to check the elemental composition of finished products. LIBS also offers the ability to analyze slag samples that can lead to the recovery of precious metals lost in the steel production process.

  • Rugged Mobile Technology for Waste Management

    Waste management is another market for which it isn`t too hard to see why ruggedness is essential. Dirty, wet, dusty conditions are an accepted part of each day in the field. Tracking carts, recording data on routes, and GPS navigation are just a few of the areas where rugged mobile computers can help get the job done easier, faster and better.

    Processing of LCD screens

    The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain valuable raw materials, such as metals and plastics, which have to be recovered in such a way, that the environment is not harmed. However, recycling specialists, Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH, have now developed an alternative: The company from Kaufering has developed an automatic processing system that enables mercury and other valuable raw materials to be easily extracted and recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.

    PEHD membrane sealing systems for retrofitting in existing landfill site

    It is also possible to retrofit a monitoring system in existing surface sealing liners without impairing the synthetic liner sheet or the immediately adjacent functional layers. For this purpose, cable trenches must be dug in the recultivation layer above the drainage layer. The detection cables are then laid in these trenches.

    Substitute fuel sampling system

    A critical eye for every sample! Analytical shredding systems for QA work are a fundamental preliminary component in the production of substitute fuels. With primary fuels and finite resources subject to continuous price increases, the significance of substitute fuels continues to rise unabated. For plant operators, this offers first-class potential and attractive prospects for the future. Businesses that buy in their substitute fuel from external suppliers are faced with two key analytical requirements before putting it to use: pollutant analysis and calorific analysis. To ensure the proper handling of these analyses, a sophisticated sampling system is required.

  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity testing

    If industrial wastewater entering a treatment works contains toxic components the rate of biodegradation will be inhibited or stop completely. This can result in failed consents and will certainly give rise to operational problems. Visible indications include deflocculation, bulking and the appearance of filamentous bacteria. Sometimes, there are no visible effects. When the sludge bacteria are inhibited, there is the possibility of toxicity carryover in the effluent that is discharged to receiving waters. With new environmental legislation being introduced, worldwide, to protect the natural environment, toxin discharge is now a serious concern for treatment plant managers.

  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity tracking

    If toxicity is identified in a mixed sewage entering a treatment works, the problem for the plant manager is to track and identify the source of the toxicity. This can be done by sampling the effluent stream at various points in its length. By working in a logical sequence back up the sewer network the number of samples can be minimised. This type of testing should be rigorously enforced for new product introduction by a waste producer, as well as sampling the effluents directly at source. The samples would be tested against the activated sludge of the receiving works, using the Respiration Inhibition Test or the Nitrification Inhibition Test.
