Waste Disposal: Some Items for Discussion

Critical Issues in the Monitoring and Control of Toxic Air Contaminants at POTWs
Todays challenge at Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs) is to assess and reduce the environmental risk posed by toxic air contaminants (TACs). This paper attempts to identify the critical...

Chemical Characterization of Ash Residue from Municipal Waste Incinerator

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...

Incineration—Panacea or Pandemic?

A Study on the Utilization of Incinerator Residue for Asphalt Concrete

Microwave Application to TRU Wastes Conditioning System
Ceramic like wastes such as incinerated ash, thermal insulator, concrete, and soil and sand mostly being composed of a dielectric material, can be directly melted by microwave irradiation....

Construction Management at Sikes Superfund Site
Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) is providing Construction Management services on the Sikes Superfund site. The project involves constructing an incinerator on-site and incinerating...

Who is Taking Out the Garbage?
Due to the shortage of landfill space and the increasing amount of waste being generated, current waste disposal techniques should be studied and revised. New methods should be implemented...

A Case Study in Sludge Handling
When the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority (WVSA) converted its operation to a secondary treatment plant in 1988, something important was missing. That something was a method to handle...

Mercury Behavior in a Wastewater Sludge Incineration Process
The Western Lake Superior Sanitary District (WLSSD) in Duluth, Minnesota utilizes solid waste as fuel to incinerate wastewater treatment sludge, conserving energy resources while reducing...

Health Risk Assessment of Incinerator Stack Emissions: Trace Metals

Properties of Sludge Incinerator Ash-Mixture

On-Site Incineration
A variety of equipment is now available for incinerating hazardous wastes in situ. Thermal treatment, compared to land disposal, offers limited liability and immediate destruction. It...

International Developments in Ocean Incineration Policy

The Evolution of Sludge Thickening Practice
An analysis of contemporary thickening practice is presented with a brief review of the genesis of each type of thickening. A summary of thickening capital and operating costs for three...

Improved Centrifuge Designs for High Cake Solids
The new generation of advanced centrifuges pioneered by Humboldt Wedag can readily produce 30 ± 2% TS cake on most raw and digested primary and waste activated sludge, wherein the primary...

Rolling Incinerators
