  • Case study - Saubermacher – Austria - Processing plant for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)

    Customer Founded in the 1979 as a small family- owned company, Saubermacher has developed into a group with around 3,800 employees and 75 locations with holdings in Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Romania. On 10th November 2010, the ecycling- park in Unterpremstätten was taken into operation, as the first electro-waste processing plant in the ...

  • Great advances in resource efficiency - recycling nonwoven process waste

    In the past, there has been no simple technical solution for recycling nonwoven process waste, which consists of side trim and reject rolls. They have been sent to landfill or in the best case incinerated for energy recovery. In October 2011, a pair of recycling extruders was installed on the Windsor Locks, CT, USA, spunbond machine producing nonwovens for medical fabrics. The purpose of the ...

  • Axion waste processing plant training case study 4 – New operators on an established plastics recycling plant

    Training a team of new operators on an established waste polymer processing plant following extensive modifications to the process. Challenge: Not all of the new machinery had been installed. The separation and refining equipment used complex processing techniques not widely used in the sector. The trainees were new recruits with no prior knowledge of ...

  • Wood Waste Processing — Under Duress

    In mid-January 2012, a winter storm moving inland from the Pacific Ocean blanketed an 11-county area of Northwest Washington with several inches of heavy wet snow, followed by a thick layer of ice that coated everything from sidewalks to skyscrapers. Nicknamed “Snowmageddon,” by locals, the storm first walloped the Seattle and Tacoma metro areas, shattering a 60-plus-year record ...

  • A hierarchical open-pit mine production scheduling optimisation model

    A hierarchical open-pit mine production scheduling methodology linking the optimal strategic open pit mine plan to the optimal medium-term production schedule is presented. The main objective of this paper is to develop, implement, and verify a mathematical programming framework for the optimal medium-term open-pit mine production scheduling using Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP). The ...

  • Nursing home trial case study

    A trial of the PyroPure PP3.5 system was undertaken at the Lynwood Nursing Home in Sunninghill, Berkshire, over a period of just over 2 months, 21 January to 31 March 2009. At the time, this 87 bed nursing home had weekly collections of 5 large (1,100 litre) bins of incontinence waste. Following agreement from the Home and after obtaining permissions from Thames Water, the Environment Agency and ...

  • Activated bauxite waste as an adsorbent for removal of Acid Blue 92 from aqueous solutions

    Bauxite waste, known as red mud, is produced in some industrial processes, such as aluminum production process. In this process, the waste material is produced from leached bauxite as a by product. In this research, the removal of Acid Blue 92 (AB92) dye was investigated from aqueous solution onto the activated bauxite waste (red mud) in a batch equilibration system. Besides, the influences of ...

  • MINERALS PROCESSING: Small bubbles, no trouble

    A CSIRO-designed gas liquid nozzle is making gold production more efficient by reducing the amount of oxygen wasted during processing. Trials at Victoria’s Stawell Gold Mine have already shown the nozzle can cut oxygen use by up to 25 per cent compared to previous methods. Dr Jie Wu, who has led the research team developing the technology at CSIRO Manufacturing and Infrastructure Technology in ...

  • Utilization of kaolin processing waste for the production of porous ceramic bodies

    The kaolin processing industry generates large amounts of waste in producing countries such as Brazil. The aim of this study was to characterize kaolin processing waste and evaluate its suitability as an alternative ceramic raw material for the production of porous technical ceramic bodies. The waste material was physically and chemically characterized and its thermal behaviour is described. ...
