  • Environment Agency Environmental Management Quality Protocols: converting waste into non-waste products

    Many organisations are unaware of how waste impacts their bottom line. The EU Waste Framework Directive outlines 5 core steps for dealing with waste and when ranked according their environmental impact, they make up the ‘waste hierarchy’. With an increase in demand for resources and increasing input costs, businesses could benefit substantially from adopting the waste ...

  • Management of waste product from watermelon for culture and production of mosquitocidal toxins (bio-pesticide)

    Watermelon rind (WMR) discarded as bio-organic waste, is rich in carbohydrates. The present study emphasises the utilisation of this solid waste for the production of biopesticide ( Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis , Bti ), to control disease transmitting mosquito vectors. An experimental culture medium was prepared by extracting the filtrates ...

  • Reverse logistics in effective recovery of products from waste materials

    Technical solutions for the recovery of products from waste materials become more and more available. To have these new technologies implemented in a real world, a feasibility study is indispensable. For this purpose, it is often imperative to adopt the viewpoint of an individual firm and ask whether it would be wise to engage in product recovery activities or not. Aspects of economics and ...

  • High quality sand from a 50 year old waste product

    A new CDE sand washing plant in Estonia is producing high quality building materials from what had previously been a waste product. The plant was purchased to process material that was simply being stockpiled as waste as a result of the high clay content. This same material is now being sold on the Estonian building materials market as high quality, fully certified sand and aggregates. The plant ...

  • Exergy analysis of the process of wet-process phosphoric acid production with full utilisation of sulphur contained in the waste phosphogypsum

    The wet-process phosphoric acid is produced by decomposition of phosphate raw materials with sulphuric acid. This gives a large amount of waste product-phosphogypsum. The thermochemical decomposition of phosphogypsum gives a gas rich in SO2. This gas is processed to obtain sulphuric acid, which is fed back into phosphoric acid production. The aim of this paper is to perform exergy analysis of the ...

  • Principles of Waste Avoidance and Utilization

    The minimization of wastes requiring disposal is increasingly important as available disposal options become more and more constrained, and particularly as more substances enter everyday use which are not readily decomposed in the natural environment and which can present long term hazards. This note sets out some basic principles for waste minimization in industrial processes, where ...

  • EU Focus on Waste Management

     Abstract Some topics are of particular concern to many European citizens. One of these is the worrying increase of waste production. The Community, indeed, generates each year around 2,000 million tonnes of waste. Over 40 million tonnes is classified as hazardous. Over the last six years, the amount of waste generated grew by 10 % a year. It is clear that we must stop and reverse this ...

  • Supermarkets and the organic food supply chain: the potential for waste generation and its mitigation

    This paper discusses the role of multiple grocery retailers ('supermarkets') within the organic food industry. While the background to the object industry (in terms of both the incentive(s) to buy organic food and the ensuing market demand/supply statistics) has to be presented such as to justify the topic as one worthy of academic interest, the main concern of this paper is with the potential ...

  • A grey system approach for forecasting disposable computer waste quantities: a case study of Delhi

    An optimised long-term planning for the management of disposable computer waste is a dire need of present owing to the exponentially growing waste quantities. Assessment of waste inventory is one of the first steps in the planning process. An efficient planning needs assessment of waste generation quantities and for long term planning, forecasting future quantities is of prime importance. This ...

  • Use of stratified cluster sampling for efficient estimation of solid waste generation at household level

    Relatively few studies have been performed to characterize municipal solid waste (MSW) at household level. This is due in part to the difficulties involved with collecting the data and selecting an appropriate statistical sample size. The previous studies identified in this paper have used statistical tools appropriate for analysing data collected at a material recovery facility or landfill site. ...

  • Rapid Field-Screening of Waste Oil/Solvent Drums with Horizontal ATR / Fast-Screening IR Spectroscopy

    While the growth of technology and industry has given us a high standard of living, it has also given us a greater amount of waste products to deal with. A significant portion of the waste is either buried underground or stored in abandoned warehouses. Some of this waste material may be harmless and innocuous, and some may be quite hazardous; but all of it must be tested by some procedure to ...

  • Diaper recycling

    Today, more than 96 per cent of parents use disposable diapers (verses cloth) due to convenience. A child in diapers will generate approximately one tonne of diaper waste prior to being toilet trained. The Sierra Club estimated that 18 billion disposable diapers are generated annually in the United States, using up four per cent of landfill space (according to U.S. EPA). The Greater Toronto Area ...

  • Protein nanofibres of defined morphology prepared from mixtures of crude crystallins

    Self assembling protein nanofibres have great potential within the nanotechnology industry. To realise this potential, nanofibres need to be manufactured on a commercial scale. To date, amyloid fibrils, a form of protein nanofibre with desirable bionanotechnological properties, have only been produced using expensive and time-costly, small-scale methods. This paper describes the production of ...

  • Distillery fusel oil as an alternative carbon source for denitrification – from laboratory experiments to full-scale applications

    Industrial waste products may be a viable alternative to commercial external carbon sources. In this study, the properties of fusel oil (distillery waste product) were investigated in terms of temperature dependency of denitrification and acclimation period. Furthermore, results obtained during three different full-scale trials were used to verify similarities with and differences from the ...
