Waste Disposal: Some Items for Discussion

Reductive Pyrolysis for the Destruction of Chloromethane: A Reaction Pathway Model Based on Thermodynamic and Thermokinetic Considerations
Among various thermal technologies available for the destruction chlorinated hydrocarbons, incineration, catalytic hydrogenation, and pyrolysis are important. Pyrolysis employed under...

Chemical Characterization of Ash Residue from Municipal Waste Incinerator

Mother Nature's Pump and Treat
Known under the general term of phytoremediation, using vegetation as a remedial agent has existed in its basic form for many years, mostly in applications involving waste-water treatment....

Meeting 503 Regulations for Ten Biosolids Incinerators (And Associated Stories)
This paper provides an overview of the Hampton Roads Sanitation District's Part 503 regulations compliance program regarding incineration of biosolids at five of its treatment facilities....

Clearing the Air About Sludge Incinerator Emissions
In 1990, a research needs assessment for wastewater treatment agencies conducted by the Water Environment Research Foundation recommended a three-year project to identify and quantify...

Beneficial Use of Ash: An Innovative Approach to Sludge Management
Disposal of ash resulting from the incineration of municipal sewage sludge has historically been a relatively easy, albeit, expensive requirement. The traditional method of disposal is...
