  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; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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. Mixed fuels composed of household waste and waste wood : Characterization, combustion behaviour and potential emissions

    Author : Mar Edo Giménez; Stina Jansson; Jonas Dahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MSW; RDF; persistent organic pollutants; PCDD; PCDF; solid waste pre-treatment; torrefaction; food waste; contaminated wood;

    Abstract :    Incineration with energy recovery is the main disposal strategy for waste that cannot be reused or recycled, and a well-established source of energy in Europe, especially in Sweden where 2.2 Mtonnes of waste including domestic and imported municipal solid waste (MSW) and waste wood (WW) were combusted during 2015.

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

    Author : Eva Weidemann; Lisa Lundin; Stellan Marklund; Jean-Francois Boily; Henrik Bristav; Kees Olie; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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

  4. 4. Cadmium Distribution and Speciation by Synchrotron Radiation Induced X-Ray Microprobe Techniques Application to Municipal Solid Waste and Biomass Fly Ashes

    Author : Caterina Camerani Pinzani; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; leaching; speciation; MSW; biomass; affinity; synchrotron radiation based micro-probe techniques; Ca-containing matrices; cadmium; fly ashes;

    Abstract : During the last few years, alternative fuels, such as wood and Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), are increasingly being used in Sweden for heat and power production. The positive environmental impact in terms of low sulphur emissions, no net emission of CO2 to the atmosphere, and local availability are main driving forces in this development. READ MORE

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

    Author : Lisa Lundin; Stellan Marklund; Mats Tysklind; James Mulholland; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MSW; fly ash; remediation; ash; PCDD; PCDF; formation; degradation; destruction; dechlorination; thermal treatment; Environmental chemistry; 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
