Energy and Resources Recovery from Refuse Incineration

Garbage Burning: Lessons from Europe

Ocean Incineration—A Burning Issue (With Emphasis on the Sea-Surface Microlayer)
Ocean incineration of hazardous wastes has been encouraged by the Environmental Protection Agency. Many scientists as well as other citizens are concerned that potential impacts have not...

Ocean Incineration and the Coastal Zone
Despite over ten years of incinerating liquid hazardous wastes in the North Sea, the scientific community and the public continue to raise serious concerns about the effectiveness of this...

Resource Recovery & Dioxins in New York State

Dioxins and Human Health
Few environmental issues have attracted as much attention and controversy as the dioxins. Considerable expense has been incurred investigating effects in human populations and laboratory...

The Swedish Dioxin Moratorium
Municipal waste constitutes an energy resource but also an environmental problem. In Sweden emissions of dioxines from waste-to-energy plants have triggered a major debate on environmental...

The National Incinerator Testing & Evaluation Program
Environment Canada, under the National Incinerator Testing & Evaluation Program (NITEP), is addressing emissions from municipal energy-from-waste combustion systems. The main thrust...

An Overview of Toxic Emissions and Best Available Control Technology for Municipal Waste Incineration

An Analysis of the Economic Post-Combustin Recovery Potential for Selected Metals at Municipal Incinerator Facilities

Fault Diagnosis of Hazardous Waste Incineration Facilities Using a Fuzzy Expert System
The use of an expert system along with fuzzy fault tree analysis is discussed in connection with fault diagnosis of a hazardous waste incineration facility. This fault tree is a diagrammatic...

Incinerating Dioxin Contaminated Waste at the USEPA Combustion Research Facility
The objective of the tests reported herein was to evaluate the incinerability of the toluene stillbottoms by determining whether 99. 9999% DRE could be achieved. All tests were performed...

Power from the Incineration of Wastewater Sludge
The City of Kansas City, Kansas recently completed an upgrading of their existing primary treatment and sludge handling system in preparation for the addition of a high purity oxygen activated...

Trace Toxic Metals Emissions from Hazardous Waste Incinerators
A physical model is proposed in order to explain the vaporization of metals during metallic waste incineration and is based on work performed to investigate inorganic emissions from coal...

Multiple-Hearth and Fluid Bed Sludge Incinerators
This paper presents recommended practices for design and operation of multiple-hearth and fluid bed furnace systems for combustion of sludges in order to eliminate or mitigate the problems...

True Cost Comparison of Landfilling and Incineration of Hazardous Wastes
An analysis of the 'true' costs of a series of discrete model situations representing hazardous waste management by landfilling and incineration was conducted....

Resource Recovery Mass-Burning Incineration
The various types of incineration systems are discussed, and the technical and economic factors to be considered in developing a resource recovery project are examined....

Method Development for Evaluating Radionuclide Emissions from Incineration of Low Level Radioactive Waste
The implementation of an incineration monitoring program for low level radioactive waste is a complex task, especially in the area of obtaining environmental permits. Emissions monitoring...

Electrically Fired Incinerator System for Combustible Radioactive Waste
DuPont Company and Shirco, Inc. are developing a process to incinerate plutonium-contaminated combustible waste in an electrically fired incineration system. Preliminary development was...
