  • Quality means money in shredding C&D and Industrial waste for RDF production

    A typical challenge in turning Construction and Demolition waste (C&D) and Industrial waste into high grade Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) is that elastic and stringy materials wrap around the rotor of the shredder. This causes hours of maintenance downtime weekly and has immediate effect on productivity. When using TANA Shark this has not been an issue for our customer Ekokem-TSJ Yrityspalvelut ...

  • Vacuum evaporation treatment of digestate: full exploitation of cogeneration heat to process the whole digestate production

    Vacuum evaporation represents an interesting and innovative solution for managing animal waste surpluses in areas with high livestock density. To reduce operational costs, a key factor is the availability of an inexpensive source of heat, such as that coming from an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant. The aim of this study was to test vacuum evaporation for the treatment of cattle slurry digestate ...

  • Sorption of cadmium in columns of sand-supported hydrothermally carbonized particles

    Sanitation in urban slums, especially in countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, is a challenge. One of the solutions to sanitation is to valorize waste, and to convert bio-waste present in the slum in a cheap and affordable way into lignite via hydrothermal carbonization (HTC). HTC is simple, cheap, converts all carbon (100%), eliminates pathogens completely, and requires wet starting ...

  • Is Waste Going to be Our Apocalypse Without a Noah’s Ark to Save Us?

    Human beings have been dumping waste in water, including the ocean, since before the Agricultural Age. The Industrial Age brought with it new materials to dump, chemical wastes and by-products. Some materials are dumped into rivers and find their way to the ocean by running downstream. Other materials are dumped directly into the ocean from boats. Plastic is a harmful pollutant that does not ...

  • Anaerobic fermentation of organic solid wastes: volatile fatty acid production and separation

    Anaerobic fermentation of organic municipal solid waste was investigated using a leach-bed reactor (LBR) to assess the volatile fatty acid (VFA) production efficiency. The leachate recycle rate in the LBR affected the VFA composition of the leachate. A six-fold increase in the recycle rate resulted in an increase of the acetic acid fraction of leachate from 24.7 to 43.0%. The separation ...
