  1. 1. Leaching, filtration and displacement washing in a treatment process for MSW combustion fly ash - laboratory scale and plant studies

    Author : Magda Wilewska-Bien; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; washing; filtration; MSW; cyclone ash; : leaching; fly ash; MSWI ash;

    Abstract : Municipal Solid Waste combustion, as one of the waste management tools, starts to play an important role nowadays in heat and energy generation. However, MSW combustion leads to generation of other wastes - combustion residues, including ashes, which require a proper management. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ecotoxicological classification of ash materials

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Sara Stiernström; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ecotoxicity; ash; classification; leaching; Waste Framework Directive; CLP-Regulation; Hazard Identification; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Incineration of waste is increasing in the EU. However, in the incineration process, both fly and bottom ash materials are generated as waste that requires further action. A common goal throughout Europe is to find ways to utilize ash materials in an environmentally and economically efficient manner in accordance with the current legislation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Formation and degradation of PCDD/F in waste incineration ashes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kemi

    Author : Lisa Lundin; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MSW; fly ash; remediation; ash; PCDD; PCDF; formation; degradation; destruction; dechlorination; thermal treatment; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi;

    Abstract : The disposal of combustible wastes by incineration is a controversial issue that is strongly debated by both scientists and environmental activists due to the resulting emissions of noxious compounds, including (inter alia) polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs), heavy metals and acid gases like sulfur dioxide. Currently available air pollution control devices are capable of effectively cleaning flue gases, and PCDD/F emissions to air from modern municipal solid waste (MSW) incinerators are low. READ MORE

  4. 4. Waste incineration residues Persistent organic pollutants in flue gas and fly ash from waste incineration

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Eva Weidemann; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MSW; PCDD; PCDF; PCN; PCB; POP; formation; degradation; case study; flue gas sampling thermal treatment; fly ash; surface characterization;

    Abstract : Modern societies produce large quantities of municipal solid waste (MSW), which is commonly disposed of by incineration. This has several advantages: it reduces the waste’s volume and sterilizes it while also enabling energy recovery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Metals in MSWI fly ash - problems or opportunities?

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Karin Karlfeldt Fedje; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; solvent extraction; NH3NO4; Cu; pH; water; leaching; MSW ash; metals; speciation; HNO3;

    Abstract : Incineration of municipal solid waste is a commonly used management method to take care of our waste. However, the residues produced are a problem. They often contain large amounts of potentially toxic metal compounds and soluble salts, which can cause harm to the environment and human health if released from the ash. READ MORE
